Verdict

Ex-Roger Varian inmate ADAMS PARK makes his stable bow for Dr Richard Newland and wears first-time cheekpieces for his introduction to hurdles. Not without promise on the level, he recently cost 16,000gns at the sales and is the type of horse the handler has success with. Test Valley was a faller when making his debut in France and is interesting on his first UK start, while Jaycols Star's experience could count for plenty.

Verdict

TEST VALLEY showed up well for a long way prior to unseating on his hurdles debut in France last month. This looks an easier race and he can win if settling better. Boko Fittleworth and Adams Park are both worth a look starting out in this sphere.

Still a maiden following 19 attempts over hurdles and, unless fitting of eyeshields spark improvement on debut for new yard, she's likely to again come up short.

Verdict

QUANTUM OF SOLACE got off the mark for Fergal O'Brien at the second attempt at Perth and despite now up to a career-high mark over hurdles, she is backed to find the required improvement for the handler who has a knack of driving handicappers up the ratings. Mitcd, a competitor in Cartmel's void race when last seen over timber, tuned up for this with a win on the Flat and has to be considered. Ilovemints and Cautorillo both have the potential to get involved at the finish too.

Verdict

QUANTUM OF SOLACE did the job well at Perth last month and a 7 lb rise may not be enough to prevent her from following up here. Recent Flat winners Methag and Mitcd rate the main dangers.

Modest handicapper on the Flat (finally off the mark at Wetherby 16 days ago) but needs to improve on her hurdles efforts so far if she's to figure.

Verdict

PECULIAR PLACES has to be respected having knocked on the door the last twice, and the application of cheekpieces could help the strong traveller who can be a little sticky over his hurdles. Worcester second King Vince could be the horse to take advantage if the selection fluffs his lines. Recent Wetherby Flat winner Pantomime has to be respected receiving a mares' allowance, and similar applies to the visored Mythical Legend.

Verdict

MYTHICAL LEGEND is yet to really get going over hurdles, but her third at Fontwell back in December reads well in the context of this race and she earns a narrow vote. Peculiar Places should give it another good shot despite her temperament being a concern, while King Vince is unlikely to be far away.

Verging on smart over hurdles and very much respected on chasing bow for all he's presumably had his problems (lightly raced for one his age).

Verdict

Mister Miyagi got off the mark at the first time of asking over fences at Uttoxeter but has a penalty to contend with, as well as a rival who was rated higher over hurdles in MINELLA AWARDS. Harry Fry's seven-year-old was very useful in that sphere, winning big handicaps at Sandown and Punchestown in 2017, and has always shaped as though he would make a better chaser. Asum completes the trio and has a mountain to climb on the evidence of his first try over the larger obstacles.

Verdict

This could well develop into a match between MISTER MIYAGI and Minella Awards, with the former narrowly preferred following an impressive start over fences at Uttoxeter last month.

Bettered his hurdling form when sent chasing last season, making the frame first 3 starts. Stretched by longer trip back over hurdles but dropped out tamely over fences at Warwick since.

Bettered his hurdling form when sent chasing last season, making the frame first 3 starts. Stretched by longer trip back over hurdles but dropped out tamely over fences at Warwick since.

Verdict

AMORE ALATO was disappointing on his most recent start at Uttoxeter when down the field having been sent off a well-backed favourite. He has since had a wind operation, and the drop in trip combined with more forceful tactics can see him to best effect. Ballyvic Boru is unexposed over fences and could feasibly benefit from a step up in distance, while Seefood might go well after a 441-day-absence, hailing from a yard that does well with horses on the comeback trail.

Verdict

SEEFOOD has been off since falling in the Topham 14 months ago but fitness is rarely a concern with this stable and he's potentially well treated. Ballyvic Boru has taken well to fences and has more to offer still, while Amore Alato and Diable de Sivola were well backed in defeat last time.

Long-standing maiden chaser who is very hard to fancy from out of handicap.

Verdict

STATE THE OBVIOUS returned to form when third over 2m5f at Ffos Las and can step up on that effort now granted this stiffer test. Sissinghurst is entitled to come on for his reappearance effort and makes some appeal on his winning hurdles form off similar marks. The pick of the remainder may be Oakidoaki, who picked up minor money over 2m4f at Huntingdon and is unexposed over this longer distance.

Verdict

SISSINGHURST didn't go close to justifying favouritism in a similar event on his reappearance but the fact he was so strong in the market suggests his good stable thinks he's still on a favourable mark and he's worth another chance. State The Obvious or Oakidoaki could be the ones to profit should the selection underperform again.

Verdict

FORTUNES HIDING is improving between runs and is taken to follow up his victory at Worcester earlier in the month and land a double. Longhouse Sale could emerge as the main danger to the penalised selection as he's won between the flags and represents a trainer who can ready his runners on their Rules debut. Money for Jonjo O'Neill's newcomer Piggy Winkle would also be notable.

Verdict

LONGHOUSE SALE showed the requisite speed to win a bumper when making a successful pointing debut last month so, having been picked up by a top yard since, he's capable of maintaining his unbeaten record at the expense of Piggy Winkle, who makes plenty of appeal on breeding. Fortunes Hiding has to be considered on the back of his Worcester success, too.
