HICONIC made the perfect start to her hurdling career when scoring readily at Newton Abbot on Tuesday (Debt Of Honour sixth) and she can complete a quick-fire double. Soldier On Parade has been in decent form on the level and warrants plenty of respect switching to hurdles for an in-form trainer, while Big Jimbo also merits consideration representing Gary Moore, who has saddled plenty of juvenile winners over the years.
Prediction : 1st Hiconic 2nd Soldier On Parade 3rd Big Jimbo

DANCING IN THE SKY ran well in three hurdle starts last year for Dr Richard Newland (previously trained by Tim Hyde in Ireland) and he makes plenty of appeal switching to fences off a lenient mark of 107. He has undergone wind surgery since last running, and may also improve for the application of a tongue-tie. Do You Know What shaped encouragingly on her chasing bow in October and is a must for the shortlist, with Court Jurado another name to note.
Prediction : 1st Dancing In The Sky 2nd Do You Know What 3rd Court Jurado

Any market support for chasing debutant Game In The Park, who makes his first start for Ben Pauling, would be interesting but there are a couple of safer options in the line-up. Going Mobile struck the crossbar on his first outing after wind surgery at Wetherby and he is likely to give another good account, but preference is for LUCK OF THE LEGION. She was progressive over timber last year (winning twice) and could improve again for this switch to fences.
Prediction : 1st Luck Of The Legion 2nd Going Mobile 3rd Game In The Park

SOLDIER OF LOVE went up 6lb after looking the likely winner before falling at the last fence on his second chase outing at Kempton in March. The wind operation had clearly worked and Paul Nicholls' gelding is capable of getting off the mark over fences. Stop The World can enter calculations having had wind surgery since his last start at Musselburgh, while the drop in grade could aid the cause of Monty's Award.
Prediction : 1st Soldier Of Love 2nd Stop The World 3rd Montys Award

GALILEO SILVER improved from his hurdling bow at Ascot when fifth at Wincanton in January and a pair of cheekpieces on his debut for Sam Thomas could see him off the mark in this sphere. Del Duque made up some late ground when fourth on debut at Huntingdon in February and promises to be suited by going up in trip, while Finisk River and Ever So Cool appear best of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Galileo Silver 2nd Del Duque 3rd Finisk River

SOME DAY SOON was progressive last summer and wasn't disgraced when running in a couple of Grade 2 events behind Thyme Hill at Chepstow and Cheltenham. The switch to handicap company may unlock further improvement from the seven-year-old with the stable amongst the winners of late. Elysees won on the level at Chepstow last month and could have more to offer over timber, while the return to hurdles could suit Moabit.
Prediction : 1st Some Day Soon 2nd Elysees 3rd Moabit

16:15 Bangor

DAMUT I'M OUT is only 2lb higher than when scoring at Worcester last summer and the course-and-distance winner won't mind conditions here on his return to the track. He is backed to see off a fellow veteran in the consistent Regulation, while Licklighter warrants a market check on his first outing for Laura Morgan. Miami Present has been off the track for almost three years, but doesn't have too many miles on the clock and has the form in the book to play a part if fully firing.
Prediction : 1st Damut Im Out 2nd Regulation 3rd Licklighter

16:50 Bangor

Point winner ROBYNDZONE has taken to fences like a duck to water, getting off the mark over the larger obstacles at just the second attempt at Huntingdon in January. He stayed on well for a comfortable victory on that occasion and there should be plenty more to come from the six-year-old, who can make light work of a 7lb rise. Perpignan was sent off favourite when last seen and could prove popular once again, given a big chance by the handicapper. He is the pick of Christian Williams' pair, with the consistent Our Uncle Pat completing the shortlist on his first start for Jake Coulson.
Prediction : 1st Robyndzone 2nd Perpignan 3rd Our Uncle Pat

17:20 Bangor

PARODY landed back-to-back Newton Abbott contests on summer ground last July and should relish conditions on her return to the track, with further success expected now joining the handicap ranks. Yeavering Belle has won twice over hurdles herself and can give Parody most to think about. The step up in trip should suit Kim Bailey's gutsy mare and she is another who will enjoy the sound surface. Coillte Eile is back down to the mark she scored off at Ascot in the autumn and completes the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Parody 2nd Yeavering Belle 3rd Coillte Eile
