1:25 - NORLEY

Zhiguli sets the standard of those to have run over hurdles while Lord Accord must go on the shortlist after his bumper win here last month. NORLEY shaped with promise in a bumper and could well prove good enough to win over hurdles at the first time of asking. [Jonathan Neesom]

2:00 - COQUELICOT

Although she faces rivals with some solid form, COQUELICOT can make a winning start over hurdles. Van Meegeren and Rookie Trainer look the main threats. [Jonathan Neesom]

2:35 - BAD BOY DU POULDU

Trainer Gary Moore's runners here are always to be respected and in Darebin and BAD BOY DU POULDU (nap) he has two leading contenders. Preference is for the latter, who was a close second here on his reappearance and looks to have every chance of getting off the mark over fences. [Keith McHugh]

3:10 - MR PUMBLECHOOK

An interesting handicap hurdle. Chirico Vallis looks the best of the two Neil Mulholland runners, Distingo has dropped to an attractive mark and Air Horse One would be interesting if the ground turns soft. However, the finish may be fought out by handicap debutante Kissiesforkatie and MR PUMBLECHOOK, with narrow preference for Alan King's runner who has strong claims on his second in a valuable Newbury handicap last season. [Keith McHugh]

3:45 - MINE'S A PINT

Provided the ground doesn't deteriorate too much, MINE'S A PINT, who looked very likely to win when falling at Huntingdon, could atone. Jarlath, another probably better on good ground, and Native Robin head the list of alternatives. [Jonathan Neesom]

4:23 - LEGENDE DE MINUIT

Recent winner Sixties Secret, course regular Hier Encore and the consistent Caviciana are all possibles but it may be worth siding with LEGENDE DE MINUIT on his handicap debut. [Jonathan Neesom]

4:55 - FURIUS DE CIERGUES

There is not much to choose between Seaside Girl, Mogestic and Kalaskadesemilley on C&D form this season but all three may struggle to cope with the unexposed FURIUS DE CIERGUES, who is 2lb lower than when finishing a good third at Doncaster on his final start of last term. [Keith McHugh]

5:30 - UCANAVER

Brilliant Present is the most interesting of the newcomers, ahead of Storm Katie and Flying Nun. Recent Warwick third Princess Ruby shaped well on her debut but the form of UCANAVER's debut at Huntingdon looks rock solid and she has joined a yard that knows how to win these races. [Jonathan Neesom]
