Iain Jardine’s mare has clearly fallen in love with Southwell's Fibresand surface.
GREY DESTINY (best price 9/2)
has been knocking at the door of late, but this could well be the day it opens for Anthony Brittain’s charge returning to the surface that suits him the best. No match for the rapidly-improving Tiger’s Home here three starts ago, the son of Desideratum has run two admiral races at Wolverhampton subsequently, leaving the impression he may have bettered his final finishing position on each occasion with a smarter break. Hopefully, the five-year-old grey can come away from the gates on terms as he certainly has the finishing pace to prove a major factor down the lane.

BAYWING (best price evens)
scored with the authority of a horse way ahead of his current handicap mark at Carlisle last time out and is strongly fancied to supplement those gains despite the assessor’s desperate attempt to put a spanner in the works. Up 15lb for what can only be described as a demolition at the Northern track, Nicky Richards’ looks to have been found another decent opportunity by connections and with stamina seemingly the son of Winged Love’s major weapon, a trip to one of the most demanding surfaces in the jumps game can bear fruit.

TIGER’S HOME(NAP) (best price 15/8)
clocked a speed figure well beyond her rating over the course last time out and even though the handicapper has attempted to stem the tide, it may not be enough to prevent the daughter of Tiger Hill from completing the hat trick. Iain Jardine’s mare has clearly fallen in love with the Fibresand surface based on her two previous visits and with form of those victories boosted by runner’s-up, Danish Duke and Roger Thorpe, everything stacks up in favour of this rapidly-improving five-year-old.

Warren Greatrex continues in irresistible form and APRIL DUSK (best price 15/8)
looks to have every chance of providing the Lambourn handler with yet another winner in this competitive novices’ handicap chase. Highly-regarded at home, the son of Turtle Island has on several occasions gone some way to justifying that reputation, most notably last time out over today’s course when running out a resounding winner of maiden hurdle. A former point-to-point winner, connections have wasted little time in sending their charge over fences and this relentless galloper with a touch of class should make a bold bid to make a winning chasing debut with a clear round.
