2.00 Rather Be is the obvious one here and boring though it might be I am going to burden him with my selection. The other two of interest are the Irish point to Point winners Bach de Clermont and Daklondyke. The latter may need further and a little more juice in the ground. Bach de Clermont was an impressive winner of his point to point and looks the main danger to the favourite.
3.05 Emerging Force looks an ideal chasing type and je can open his account for the season here.
3.40 Octagon is probably better than his form figures suggest and he returns to the minimum trip for the first time since winning over 2 miles at Hexham last May.
5.20 I will take a chance with points winner One Forty Seven here although the trip could be a slight worry.
