Well held in bumpers but did at least build on hurdling debut effort when fifth of 8 over C&D last month. Needs to build on that further now.

Verdict

A low-key maiden to kick things off and SUBCONTINENT should only need to reproduce the form of either of his runner-up efforts this year, at Haydock in March and Warwick last month, to be successful. Koala Keel wouldn't have been far away in a C&D novices' hurdle latest but for falling at the last flight and she can figure with a clear round of jumping, while Ayr fourth Kennedys Field also has place credentials.

Verdict

SUBCONTINENT has shown more than enough to think a race of this nature, at this time of year, is within reach and he gets the nod to go one place better than he did at Warwick recently. Fair Flat performer Bodacious Name was in the process of running well over hurdles prior to an unfortunate incident here last autumn though, and he is fancied to play a part.

Useful hurdler who offered plenty to work on sent chasing over an inadequate trip when runner-up at Sedgefield in October. Should strip fitter for recent run over hurdles and solid claims.

Verdict

Triple hurdle scorer Blue Comet warrants plenty of respect on his chasing/seasonal debut, but it's difficult to get away from a race-fit JACKS LAST HOPE. Chris Grant's charge is much the best of these over hurdles, ran well when runner-up on his sole outing over fences to date and he already has two course victories under his belt. Fly Rory Fly could edge out Cherif De L'isle for third spot.

Verdict

BLUE COMET very much went the right way over hurdles, and he could be up to making the perfect start in this sphere for a yard that has plenty of success around here. Jacks Last Hope is strongly feared.

Remains with little solid form so difficult to recommend for all this is a weak race. Has had wind operation.

Verdict

It might pay to side with the top-rated HELLO FELLAS, who steps up in trip for his handicap debut, has leading northern jockey Brian Hughes booked to ride and could potentially improve for having wind surgery towards the end of last year. Past C&D scorer Wind Of Hope merits consideration lining up off the same mark as when sixth on his comeback at Ayr, while Titus Bolt is another who likes it here and arrives fit from a spin on the Flat.

Verdict

HELLO FELLAS has shown clear promise in his qualifying runs and rates a likely improver now switching to handicaps following a break/wind operation. Permission Granted shouldn't be written off just yet, while there were better signs from Frightened Rabbit last time and he could come into the reckoning if building on that.

Irish hunter chase winner a year ago who returned to form from out of the blue when runner-up at Exeter (3m) last month. Really needs to build on that now.

Verdict

MAID OF MILAN returns from a six-month absence having fallen at Fakenham in November but she appears to have more to offer on only her fourth start over fences and first-time cheekpieces can spark some improvement. Shanroe Street was a faller at the last over C&D on his most recent start but is expected to bounce back here, while Wicked Spice is of interest back over fences being just 3lb higher than his last winning mark.

Verdict

MAID OF MILAN made a good start over fences during the autumn and was in the process of matching her previous best prior to falling 2 out at Fakenham in November (had jumped well up to that point). She is fancied to go well on return to action, with Shanroe Street and Nefyn Bay next best.

Capitalised on falling mark in Carlisle conditional jockeys' handicap but disappointed off same mark next time. Pulled up both starts over fences 2 seasons ago. Due to run 6.35 here Wednesday.

Verdict

MORNING WITH IVAN arrives here in excellent form and she doesn't appear to have hit her ceiling yet. Her recent C&D success was an authoritative display and a 5lb rise in the handicap should be no issue. Nendrum was a beaten favourite behind the selection at Musselburgh back in March but he could be capable of a lot better here after a small break, while Excellent Result is of interest back at 2m having looked a non-stayer when running over 2m4f at Market Rasen.

Verdict

WOT A SHOT arrives on the back of a good run in a well-contested affair at Ayr last month and the handicapper has taken a chance dropping him 2 lb since. The thriving Morning With Ivan is likely to go well again, while Nendrum has been given a bit of time since a disappointing run at Musselburgh in March and is capable of bouncing back.

Attracted support in a Sedgefield handicap in October but proved disappointing, and similar story back at that venue on Boxing Day. Absent again since and 5 lb out the weights here. Cheekpieces added.

Verdict

MAKE IT HAPPEN returned to winning ways at Kelso last month and a 4lb rise might not be enough to prevent the follow up now that the penny has dropped with Lucinda Russell's charge. The nine-year-old is versatile with regards to underfoot conditions and can account for Frankie's Promise, who is a past course winner with recent form between the flags, and My Escapade, who put up a bold showing in defeat when third over course and distance last time at odds of 50-1.

Verdict

LASTIN' MEMORIES was narrowly behind Make It Happen when the pair filled the first 2 spots in a conditional jockeys' event at Kelso last time but might be able to turn the tables on that rival now, particularly as Tommy Dowson is able to use his 3 lb claim this time. My Escapade will also have a part to play if she can reproduce the form she showed on her return from an absence here last time.
