KING CALVIN looked on good terms with himself when returning to winning ways over 2m4f at Wincanton on what was only his second start under Rules. He's also a dual point scorer and is expected to give a good account of himself here under penalty. Master Tommytucker was off the mark at the first time of asking over the extended 2m2f here in February and looks the main danger ahead of recent Hereford second Applesolutely, who drops back from 3m1f.
Prediction : 1st King Calvin 2nd Master Tommytucker 3rd Applesolutely

14:35 Exeter

GARRANE backed up his 3m victory at Taunton with a comfortable victory at Chepstow last time out and there is every chance he can defy a 9lb rise and complete a hat-trick if he returns in anything like the same mood. Albert D'olivate is entitled to step up on a solid second at Warwick last time and is the one expected to put up most resistance, while big runs from Norse Legend and Sandhurst Lad, both of whom attracted support last time out, are also anticipated.
Prediction : 1st Garrane 2nd Albert Dolivate 3rd Sandhurst Lad

15:10 Exeter

WIZARDS BRIDGE knuckled down well to get the better of Leo Luna over 3m2f at Fontwell last time and is expected to remain competitive following a 2lb rise for that head victory. Ballyheigue Bay steps up in trip after landing minor money over the extended 2m7f at Ascot last time and could play a minor role, though the main danger to the selection may be Yanmare, who is only 2lb higher than when striking over track and trip in December.
Prediction : 1st Wizards Bridge 2nd Yanmare 3rd Ballyheigue Bay

15:45 Exeter

CHOIX DES ARMES romped to an easy victory on his handicap debut over 2m at Wincanton last time and is expected to remain competitive now turned out under a penalty. This step up in trip is expected to be a source of immediate improvement for Paul Nicholls' six-year-old. Take A Break appeared to find 2m1f on the sharp side when second at Sedgefield last time and has place claims up in trip, while Drops Of Jupitor, a C&D novice hurdle winner in December, is also weighted to take a hand.
Prediction : 1st Choix Des Armes 2nd Take A Break 3rd Drops Of Jupitor

16:20 Exeter

THE CANNISTER MAN shaped encouragingly when second over this trip at Fontwell last time and should be thereabouts if running to a similar level of form. Lough Ryn may be able to step up on his Huntingdon fourth last time now dropping back in trip and has place possibilities along with L'Auberge Du Bois, who turned in a career-best effort when runner-up at Wincanton last time.
Prediction : 1st The Cannister Man 2nd LAuberge Du Bois 3rd Lough Ryn

16:55 Exeter

KAVANAGHS CORNER was not beaten far when finishing second at Leicester last month and Simon Earle's gelding can be supported to go one better from the same mark. Kahdian is another who arrives here on the back of a promising recent effort, while Never Learn cannot be discounted despite having to give plenty of weight to all of his rivals.
Prediction : 1st Kavanaghs Corner 2nd Kahdian 3rd Never Learn

17:30 Exeter

A tricky race to close the card but the marginal preference is for PALMARIA, who has been a consistent performer between the flags this season. She ran her best race under Rules when finishing third in a novice hurdle here in late 2015 and she should have no problem handling soft ground. Uncle Jimmy was well beaten by the winner at Newbury last time but this race is weaker and he could make the frame once again, while Thereyarsee and Herbert Park also warrant consideration.
Prediction : 1st Palmaria 2nd Uncle Jimmy 3rd Thereyarsee
