  • 12:40 - Gerry's 50th Handicap Hurdle

    HAULANI won twice on the Flat and is rated 76 in that sphere, so an opening perch of 110 appears workable for his first handicap outing over timber. His Kempton second in December represented a step up on his penultimate effort at Catterick so he appears the one to side with. C&D winner Alizee De Janeiro is considered the principal threat, though a big run from Morning With Ivan, who arrives on a four-timer, is also anticipated.

  • 13:15 - Gerry Mcgladery 50th Birthday Handicap Chase

    ATTENTION PLEASE followed up his easy Doncaster success with a gritty victory at Catterick latest. While he remains in such good heart, he may be able to overcome a 6lb rise to complete a hat-trick. Smiling Jessica is only 3lb higher than when scoring over track and trip from Misfits earlier in the month and there could be little between the pair here on the revised terms. Havana Jack and More Madness are others competitively weighted at present.

  • 13:45 - Cosmic Case Mares' Novices' Hurdle

    SIMONE was touched off by under a length in a C&D maiden hurdle last time and has leading claims on that performance. Northern Beau, an ex Flat performer, has recently won twice between the flags and is interesting now debuting for a new stable, while dual bumper winner Tokaramore should be all the wiser for the experience gained at Newcastle in November and could also take closer order.

  • 14:20 - Gerry Mcgladery Is 50 Handicap Hurdle

    JE SUIS CHARLIE was touched off by under a length over track and trip last time out but now switching to handicap company and fitted with first-time cheekpieces, John Quinn's four-year-old is given the vote. Treshnish makes some appeal on his Newcastle victory on his penultimate outing and could feasibly take a hand, while any money for Mr Kite, who has been absent since scoring over C&D in March, would be notable.

  • 14:55 - Gerry Mcgladery 50 Years Handicap Chase

    SWING HARD jumped well when third on his belated reappearance at Haydock last month and this fairly-handicapped veteran looks poised to go well here now dropped in class. Conditions will suit the 10-year-old and he can land this at the expense of Tomorrow's Legend, who looks well treated on the best of his efforts but has a career record of 1-16. Irish raider Rancher Lass did it well over 3m here last time but could do with better ground.

  • 15:30 - Happy 50th Birthday Gerry Mcgladery Handicap Hurdle

    Recent course and distance winners Jump For Dough and Fraser Canyon look poised to be popular in the betting, with the former of particular interest now that the penny has dropped for him over hurdles. He looks to be on the up and rates as the chief threat to APACHEE PRINCE. The bottom weight is better than what he showed here on New Year's Day when unseating Kieron Edgar, had previously looked progressive and should cope with conditions.

  • 16:00 - Gerry McGladery Celebrates 50 Standard Open NH Flat Race

    It usually takes a nice horse to defy a penalty in such contests, but there was much to like about I'M TO BLAME's Catterick success back in November and he looks to have been found a nice opening here by Keith Dalgleish. A 30,000-pound brother to Showem Silver, he was well backed last time and duly obliged, doing his job professionally on the day. Star Of Lanka did it well in a junior bumper at Newcastle last time and is bred to be useful in this sphere, while Forewarning is also considered with his weight-for-age allowance taken into account.
