A winner over hurdles in Ireland in January, Wall Of Fame heads the ratings here on his debut for Donald McCain and the seven-year-old holds good claims. However, he may have to play second fiddle to DRUMLEE WATAR, who produced his best effort over fences when runner-up at Plumpton on his latest start. Game Socks has the scope to progress over the larger obstacles and looks best of the rest.
Prediction : 1st Drumlee Watar 2nd Wall Of Fame 3rd Game Socks

Plenty arrive in good form in this race and Dan Skelton's Shentri, who hacked up when last seen over fences at Uttoxeter in May, is an obvious candidate. However, DE BARLEY BASKET continued his progression when winning easily at the same track last month and makes the most appeal. Lord Bryan is seeking his fourth successive win and can also feature.
Prediction : 1st De Barley Basket 2nd Shentri 3rd Lord Bryan

After attracting market support, INTREPIDE SUD shaped better than the result when sixth at Aintree in May on his debut under Rules and gets the vote on his first run for Fergal O'Brien. Western Safire performed creditably when runner-up over course and distance last month and should go well, while Ironhill makes his debut for Amy Murphy and also makes the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Intrepide Sud 2nd Western Safire 3rd Ironhill

14:45 Worcester

This may revolve around AMERICAN SNIPER, who shaped well when second on debut over C&D last month and, granted normal improvement, he can repay the faith shown last time when going off favourite. Far more was expected of Wind Of Fortune when making his debut here last month and it could be that we see a totally different proposition this time around. Testflight showed marked improvement from his first to second start when third at Newton Abbot and he is entitled to go on again here.
Prediction : 1st American Sniper 2nd Wind Of Fortune 3rd Testflight

15:20 Worcester

FAT SAM could hardly have done it any easier at Ffos Las last month and connections look to have found a perfect opportunity to exploit a hurdles mark, which is 3lb less than what he last won off over fences. Tiger Orchid arrives with similar claims following a bloodless success at Southwell in May, while the frustrating, yet talented, Oceanline makes his first start for new connections.
Prediction : 1st Fat Sam 2nd Tiger Orchid 3rd Oceanline

15:55 Worcester

A 203-day break was just the ticket for MY POEM as she lost her maiden tag at Uttoxeter last month and now that the penny had dropped, there is likely to be more improvement forthcoming. Ince had both Cirrus (third) and Durragh (fourth) behind when runner-up at Market Rasen and Fergal O'Brien's charge looks the chief threat to the selection. Not beaten far on his penultimate start over C&D, Karannelle merits consideration as well.
Prediction : 1st My Poem 2nd Ince 3rd Karannelle

16:30 Worcester

PAINLESS POTTER showed some promise in juvenile hurdles last season, most notably when third to Knight Salute on debut at Kempton, and he is open to a fair amount of improvement on his handicap debut. Pillar Of Steel returned to form when second over C&D and the mare is likely to enter the reckoning along with Master Malachy, who arrives having won two of his last three outings.
Prediction : 1st Painless Potter 2nd Pillar Of Steel 3rd Master Malachy

17:05 Worcester

LESSANKAN finished runner-up on his latest start at Ffos Las over fences and the step back up in trip on his return to hurdles might see the seven-year-old go one better. Gold Leader went up 9lb for a comfortable victory at Uttoxeter last month and the mare commands plenty of respect, while others for the shortlist include Bird On The Wire and Lake Shore Drive.
Prediction : 1st Lessankan 2nd Gold Leader 3rd Bird On The Wire
