Yanworth  13.55 Haydock 1 Pt Win @ Evs (bog)

Smart hurdler who won twice over fences last season. The Stayers' Hurdle next month is presumably his aim again and he could prove to be the class act here. Good record fresh bodes very well.

C'Est Jersey 15.40 Gowran Park 1 Pt Win @ 5\2 (bog)

Useful chaser. 7/2, creditable third of 7 in novice chase at Punchestown (25.2f, good) 47 days ago. Back down in trip. Booking of Walsh a plus. Another bold show likely.

Note: Pistol Whipped winning yesterday was the 114 winner of the year in UK which equals last years total in 4 races less, with about 1 month to go. Strike Rate to this point is obviously better but the profit is down by about 10 pts.

Superkalanistic 16.10 Huntingdon 1 Pt Win @ 9\4 (bog)

Unexposed as a staying hurdler and confirmed previous promise when landing a 12-runner event at Ludlow recently. Extra emphasis on stamina could bring even more out of him, so he's the one to beat.

Ucello Conti 16.00 Navan 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

Smart chaser who got the better of top-class pointer Sydney Paget prior to making a winning hunter chase debut at Thurles (23.7f), albeit far from convincing. Still, he's a major player.

1st @11\10 -  tracked leaders, slow 1st, 2nd halfway, slight mistake 10th, headway to lead before 2 out, ridden to assert approaching last and kept on well run-in

Riviere Argentee 16.25 Lingfield 1 Pt Win @ 2\1 (bog)

Fair on Flat and has improved in similar events over hurdles for this trainer, runner-up at Kempton and Plumpton. Can go one better with hood added to headgear.

Zoutoise 17.05 Wetherby 1 Pt Win @ 7\4 (bog)

Half-sister to 7 winners, including very smart hurdler/top-class chaser Whisper. Created very favourable impression when successful on 1½m course debut last month. Capable of defying a penalty.

Zoutoise 17.05 Wetherby 1 Pt Win @ 7\4 (bog)

8th - raced keenly, held up in touch, ridden and lost place over 2f out, weakened final furlong

Porrima 16.50 Newcastle 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

11/4, career best when winning 6-runner handicap at this C&D 19 days ago, suited by strong pace. Expected to make a bold bid to land the hat-trick. 

Insult 14.05 Punchestown 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Promising sort. 12/1, second of 14 in novice hurdle at Tramore (21f, soft) on NH debut 50 days ago, closing all way to line. Should have more to offer.

Gorgeous General 17.20 Southwell 1 Pt Win @ 5\4 (bog)

Posted another career best when winning 7-runner handicap (2/1) at this course (6.1f) 8 days ago, leaving impression at the line there was a bit more in the tank. Bound to go well again. 

Real Steel 14.00 Thurles 1 Pt Win @ Evs (bog)

Useful chaser. 1 win from 2 runs this season. 6/4, won 10-runner novice chase at Fairyhouse (21.4f, soft) 26 days ago, well on top finish. Open to progress.

Printing Dollars 13.30 Exeter 1 Pt Win @ 15\8 (bog)

Point/bumper winner who made it third time lucky in this sphere in a C&D maiden (soft) last month, staying on well. Remains with potential now venturing into handicaps (unexposed as a stayer). 

Crest of a Wave 19.00 Dundalk 1 Pt Win @ 6\4 (bog)

Promising sort. Excellent second of 14 in handicap at this C&D (25/1) 28 days ago, nearest finish. Open to further improvement and one to be interested in.

12th - broke well, tracked leaders, ran freely, 4th halfway, pushed along and short of room 2f out, dropped towards rear and no impression 1f out, eased inside final furlong

Monumental Man 18.00 Wolverhampton 1 Pt Win @ 13\8 (bog)

Fairly useful gelding. C&D winner. Four wins from 23 runs last year. Creditable third of 12 in handicap at this C&D (8/1) 4 days ago. Has a good chance on these terms. 

Alpha Des Obeaux 16.00 Fairyhouse 1 Pt Win @ 2\1 (bog)

High-class chaser. Blinkered for 1st time, very good second of 18 in handicap chase at Gowran (25f, soft, 20/1) 30 days ago, sticking to task. Will prove hard to beat if in the same form.

2nd -  led, ridden and strongly pressed 2 out, headed before last, kept on same pace in 2nd run-in

Shantou Flyer  16.25 Fontwell 1 Pt Win @ Evs (bog)

Better for his reappearance when gaining a hard-fought success at Kelso 10 days ago and should have enough to follow-up with a fitness edge over his main rival. 

Chosen Mate 15.00 Naas 1 Pt Win @ 13\8 (bog)

Promising individual. 1 win from 2 runs this season. 5/2, ¾-length second of 7 to Sinoria in listed hurdle at Punchestown (16f, good to soft) 14 days ago. Expected to be bang there.

The Flying Sofa 15.00 Plumpton 1 Pt Win @ 5\4 (bog)

Useful bumper winner last term and has shown plenty in 2 runs over hurdles back from 11 months off, second over C&D a fortnight ago, headed close home. Leading claims.

Bay of Naples 17.30 Wolverhampton 1 Pt Win @ 5\4 (bog)

Promising novice chaser back in 2015 and won a brace of points prior to landing the odds in a 3-runner hunter at Fakenham (3m) 12 days ago. Drop in trip and switch to this track will suit.

Samtu 14.10 Musselburgh 1 Pt Win @ Evs (bog)

Flat/hurdles winner who looked as good as ever when making a winning chase bow in 4-runner event over C&D 2 weeks ago and entitled to progress from that. 

Pack Your Bags 15.25 Clonmel 1 Pt WIn @ 15\8 (bog)

Career best when winning 10-runner handicap chase (13/8) at this course (20.2f, good to soft) 14 days ago, readily. Switches from chase to hurdles. Expected to be bang there.

Orchardstown Cross 16.30 Newbury 1 Pt Win @ 13\8 (bog)

Lightly-raced sort who confirmed yard debut promise when beating 23 rivals with plenty in hand at Taunton 10 days ago and should prove hard to beat under a penalty in that form. 

Western Australia 19.45 Dundalk 1 Pt Win @ 11\10 (bog)

Smart colt. Very good ¾-length third of 11 to Magna Grecia in Futurity Trophy at Doncaster (8f, good, 50/1), having run of race. Makes polytrack debut. Standard bearer.

Empire De Maulde 16.40 Doncaster 1 Pt Win @ 9\4 (bog)

Landed 4 bumpers in France at up to 1½m and put it all together for the first time over hurdles when bolting up in a Newcastle handicap 46 days ago. Can follow up despite a hefty rise.

Veinard 16.00 Navan 1 Pt Win @ 5\4 (bog)

2/1, career best when winning 4-runner handicap chase at Ayr (16.5f, good to soft) 24 days ago, travelling best. Form choice.

Very Extravagant 16.25 Sedgefield 1 Pt Win @ 13\8 (bog)

Completed a hat-trick at up to 25.6f during 2016. Not at that level anymore but recent efforts suggest he has a race of this nature in him from this sort of mark.

The Church Gate 16.50 Leopardstown 1 Pt Win @ Evs (bog)

Two wins from 4 runs this season. 8/1, career best when winning 23-runner handicap hurdle at this course (20.2f, good) 65 days ago, keeping on well. Switches from hurdles to chase. Leniently treated.

Primal Focus 16.15 Fakenham 1 Pt Win @ 2\1 (bog)

Shaped better than the distance beaten when fifth in Ludlow handicap (23.8f, good to soft) 12 days ago. Return to shorter trip should suit and merits consideration. 

Ballybrowney Walk  16.05 Leopardstown 1 Pt Win @ 13\8 (bog)

6/1, good second of 10 in handicap chase at Clonmel (20.2f, good to soft) 18 days ago. Expected to be bang there.
