Pride Of Parish had been off the track for over two years when scoring at Market Rasen last month and he battled on well enough to potentially defy a 4lb rise, while Thomas Shelby remains on the same mark as when a solid second at Uttoxeter last time. ROBYNDZONE looks the one to side with, though, as Fergal O'Brien's charge was an easy winner at Bangor last time and though the handicapper has slapped him with a 10lb hike, he could still prove up to the challenge.
Prediction : 1st Robyndzone 2nd Pride Of Parish 3rd Thomas Shelby

The Butcher Said showed some cracking form over timber, finishing second in the Silver Plate at Kempton when last seen and he has to be respected on his chasing bow, but MINELLA WARRIOR could have the edge. Kim Bailey's charge was well fancied for his return to action at Uttoxeter and was a shade disappointing, but he could come on for that outing and put his fencing experience to good use. Sussex Road's only chance is if the other two fail to finish.
Prediction : 1st Minella Warrior 2nd The Butcher Said 3rd Sussex Road

Croco Bay is firmly in the veteran category but showed he could still compete when second here last time, but the younger legs of AZZURI could be the key here. Dan Skelton's gelding had been struggling in recent outings but a sounder surface and return to fences seemed to work when he was second here last time and he could go one better. Tidal Watch and Solar Impulse are others to note in a trappy contest.
Prediction : 1st Azzuri 2nd Croco Bay 3rd Tidal Watch

DONNIE AZOFF ran a cracker in a bumper here on debut, staying on well for second. The winner has since gone in again, so the form looks solid enough. Le Boulevardier was overhauled by the selection for second on debut and could be a danger again, while Thetracksofmytears could prove the pick of the newcomers for Alan King.
Prediction : 1st Donnie Azoff 2nd Le Boulevardier 3rd Thetracksofmytears

Perfect Grace has to give weight all round after making up an enormous amount of ground from three out on her hurdling debut here and she may be capable of defying the impost, though it may be worth taking her on with GERBOISE BORGET. A shade keen on her debut at Uttoxeter, she still ran with credit to be fourth and could improve with that run possibly taking the freshness out of her. Bumper winners Corrie Lake and Pink Sheets have to be respected.
Prediction : 1st Gerboise Borget 2nd Perfect Grace 3rd Corrie Lake

JAMACHO has impressively notched a Stratford double and, despite a further 7lb hike in the ratings, he looks like the one they all have to beat. Calvinist went desperately close over 2m4f at Uttoxeter last month and cutting back in distance shouldn't bother him, while Purple King and Lleyton also arrive following solid placed efforts and they complete the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Jamacho 2nd Calvinist 3rd Purple King

LIFFEYDALE DREAMER has done little wrong in two starts since joining Sam England from Ireland, building on her three-parts of a length second over an extended 2m4f here when scoring easily at Cartmel, and she is hard to oppose. Fergal O'Brien is in red-hot form so Cool Destination, who finished runner-up in a couple of maiden hurdles last year, is likely to run well, while Uttoxeter third Aughnacurra King also has place credentials.
Prediction : 1st Liffeydale Dreamer 2nd Cool Destination 3rd Aughnacurra King

NO QUARTER ASKED has improved with each hurdle start to date and, stepping up in trip on his handicap debut, he is fancied to play a leading role. Bartholomew J showed a fantastic attitude when winning over 2m here recently and he should remain competitive off a 4lb higher mark, while Coby Nine is worth a market check at least on his first outing since October.
Prediction : 1st No Quarter Asked 2nd Bartholomew J 3rd Coby Nine

17:20 Southwell

ETAT MAJOR AULMES ran out a comfortable winner on his handicap debut over an extended 2m5f at Newton Abbot and with a 5lb rise deemed fair, he gets the vote to follow up. Molliana placed off the same mark over course and distance last week and she is likely to be in the shake-up again, while Dariya also merits consideration having undergone wind surgery since her latest outing.
Prediction : 1st Etat Major Aulmes 2nd Molliana 3rd Dariya
