12.40 Amidon looks an interesting prospect over fences later in the season but has an each way chance here in this handicap hurdle.

2.50 I quite like the chances of the two top weights Sign of a Victory and Jolly’s Cracked It. Once again we may see both horses to advantage over fences later.

3.25 Ned Stark looks to be on a decent mark and provided that the going isn’t too quick should go well.

3.55 Cultivator was a bit too free when 3rd at New bury last season. It he settles better he would be hard to beat.


1.15 Another Bill has already won twice in bumpers at this track and looks set to make a winning start to his hurdling career.

4.00 Glingerburn can land this handicap hurdle before going chasing.


1.25 Zeroshadesofgrey stays well and looks one to follow this season in handicap chases.

Down Royal selections

2.10 Ptit Zig

3.50 Death Duty

2.10 Casual Approach is going for a hat trick after wins at Limerick and Navan. Deserves his chance here and is preferred to Laurium. Richard Johnson takes the ride.

3.55 A Good Skin is a course winner and looks to have scope for improvement.

4.30 Drumlee Sunset is my selection in this. He won an Exeter bumper last season and looks the type do win more races.
