Percy Prosecco made a favourable impression when successful on his hurdles debut at Huntington last month, but he is vulnerable under a penalty. With that in mind, preference is for CAROUSE, who was narrowly beaten on his jumping bow at Ludlow 30 days ago and can only improve for that experience. Others to note are Bodes Well and Elysees.
Prediction : 1st Carouse 2nd Percy Prosecco 3rd Elysees

WORTHY FARM finished only half a length behind the winner when third on his Rules debut at Bangor back in April. If he can improve for that experience then Paul Nicholls' gelding should prove hard to beat in a race of this nature. The main threat to the selection appears to be De Name Evades Me, who has an official rating of 125 and has already had a run this season at Cheltenham, where a decent second. Captain Cargo has also displayed promise and he is the pick of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Worthy Farm 2nd De Name Evades Me 3rd Captain Cargo

A race that has been won by the likes of Somersby, Balder Succes and Vibrato Valtat in past years and KALASHNIKOV can add his name to the roll of honour. Amy Murphy's stable star won the Betfair Hurdle last season prior to hitting the crossbar in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham and he should take high rank in this sphere. Huntsman Son was not disgraced when fourth in the Imperial Cup when last seen and he could pose the biggest threat to the selection, with Scorpion Sid likely to pip Lisdoonvarna Lad for third.
Prediction : 1st Kalashnikov 2nd Huntsman Son 3rd Scorpion Sid

14:30 Warwick

DJIN CONTI improved for good ground when successful at Wincanton in May and the five-year-old from Harry Whittington's burgeoning string can build on that victory off what could be a lenient opening handicap mark. Mick Thonic was rated in the mid 130's at his best over fences and warrants respect off this much lower hurdles rating with a 10lb conditional aboard, while Finley's Eyes is another handicap debutant who has shown a decent level of form in novice contests and represents a top team.
Prediction : 1st Djin Conti 2nd Finleys Eyes 3rd Mick Thonic

MORNEY WING was a runaway winner at Fontwell last month and despite a 12lb rise for that easy triumph, it would be no surprise to see Charlie Mann's nine-year-old strike once again while the ground is in his favour and he is clearly thriving. Irish Octave is capable of running well fresh and could prove a major challenger if able to repeat the best of his staying chase form. Kilmurvy is 6lb higher than when scoring at Newton Abbot in the summer but can't be ruled out, while Gardiners Hill was beaten less than a length on his Ffos Las reappearance and is another for the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Morney Wing 2nd Irish Octave 3rd Kilmurvy

15:35 Warwick

JARLATH won this race last year off 1lb lower and caught the eye when second at Fontwell when last seen. The seven-year-old shaped like a winner in waiting there, and it is worth noting that Tom O'Brien now rides for the first time. Too Much Too Soon has been a beaten favourite the last twice but may improve returning from a five-month break at Carlisle 15 days ago, while West Wizard looks best of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Jarlath 2nd Too Much Too Soon 3rd West Wizard

Point-to-point winner Printing Dollars cost connections 60,000 pounds and looks sure to give a good account under Sam Waley-Cohen, while Eleanorofaquitaine has finished second in two Newton Abbot bumpers and could go close again. However, Ben Pauling is 7-16 with his runners in this sphere here over the last five years so ANIGHTINLAMBOURN receives the vote. She is related to plenty of useful types and is expected to know her job on debut.
Prediction : 1st Anightinlambourn 2nd Eleanorofaquitaine 3rd Printing Dollars
