Dusty's Choice offered encouragement in his two hurdling starts for John Quinn, while Aire Valley Lad showed resolution which belied his inexperience when landing a Newcastle bumper on debut. Employer is fit from a couple of spins on the Flat, but he isn't as good in that sphere as GINISTRELLI. The son of Frankel couldn't justify favouritism at Pontefract on his first start for Olly Murphy, but jumping is presumably what he was bought for.
Prediction : 1st Ginistrelli 2nd Dustys Choice 3rd Aire Valley Lad

Le Grand Rocher and Rock On Tiger help set the jumping standard but they bump into a couple of interesting recruits from the level. Grey Spirit won three handicaps at around 1m1f for Sir Mark Prescott, who also saddled TIMOSHENKO to triumph at Glorious Goodwood. Seen just once since completing a six-timer on the Sussex Downs - when down the field in the Cesarewitch - the five-year-old has changed hands for 72,000gns and can make a successful start to his new career.
Prediction : 1st Timoshenko 2nd Grey Spirit 3rd Le Grand Rocher

Olly Murphy has two chances of adding to his brilliant start to the new season, with Richard Johnson's presence on board Highland Bobby hinting that he is more forward than the potentially well-treated Redemptorist. PERFECT CITY also looks thrown in on his handicap hurdling debut, given that Jonjo O'Neill's gelding was rated as high as 91 on the level and competes off 105 here. His jumping efforts so far have been nothing special, but he is expected to leave them firmly in the past.
Prediction : 1st Perfect City 2nd Highland Bobby 3rd Redemptorist

Diodorus built on his hurdling debut second when going one better at Wetherby, and he has the benefit of a recent Flat spin under his belt. He will do well to successfully concede 7lb to ESCAPABILITY, though, with the Alan King-trained five-year-old also stretching his legs on the level last month and he showed he has a future at this game last winter. Wind surgery and the application of cheekpieces could help bring Cotswold Prince into the equation too.
Prediction : 1st Escapability 2nd Diodorus 3rd Cotswold Prince

SIROBBIE's winning run came to an end when he was upped to Grade 3 company at Haydock last November, but he has scope for plenty more improvement and is unbeaten in four previous visits to this venue. He can make it five, although That's A Given signed off his last campaign with a Hereford triumph and is another with a bright future. Jimmy Rabbitte has been costly to follow but will reward those who keep the faith before too long.
Prediction : 1st Sirobbie 2nd Thats A Given 3rd Jimmy Rabbitte

Doing Fine was last seen landing a competitive Cheltenham handicap on New Year's Day, while Hepijeu hasn't been out of the first three since moving to the Stuart Edmunds yard 13 starts ago. A 7lb rise for his Warwick win seemed to find For Good Measure out when he was last seen at Exeter, although he is well treated on the pick of his form, but PADLEYOUROWNCANOE is unexposed in this sphere and his profitable spell on the all-weather relatively recently may give him an all-important edge.
Prediction : 1st Padleyourowncanoe 2nd Doing Fine 3rd Hepijeu

Bold Record is interesting as Nicky Henderson's first NH runner back, but BANNIXTOWN GLORY was such a reliable mare for Donald McCain last campaign and she appears the safest option. That said, Whiskey And Water usually runs his race too and warmed up for a jumping return with a fair Flat effort at Redcar. Court Duty is nicely treated compared to his chase figure, and Clever As A Fox could have a say now that he steps out of novice company.
Prediction : 1st Bannixtown Glory 2nd Whiskey And Water 3rd Bold Record

KINGS TEMPTATION overcame adversity to land the odds in a small field at Fontwell last October before struggling at the same venue off this mark. That came after a busy spell, though, and he might be able to recapture his best after a holiday. Midnight Magic has undergone wind surgery since he was last seen so better is expected from him. Pride Of Parish is an unknown quantity but has won plenty between the flags.
Prediction : 1st Kings Temptation 2nd Midnight Magic 3rd Pride Of Parish

Miss Farage did some decent late work over 1m6f on her Ludlow debut at the start of the year, and will know more about what is required of her now. She comes up against some interesting newcomers, including Mini Crest and Bonnie Golightly, but GERBOISE BORGET makes most appeal. Ben Pauling's mare is a half-sister to former top French hurdler Gemix and can carry the famous JP McManus silks to glory here.
Prediction : 1st Gerboise Borget 2nd Miss Farage 3rd Mini Crest
