EXCITING NEWS created a good impression when winning at Market Rasen on her first start for the Dan Skelton team. That was her first run over hurdles and given the filly was the highest rated of these on the Flat, she looks capable of shrugging off her penalty. Graffiti has to concede weight all round, so the main threat may be the Gary Moore-trained Executive Pool, who ran a fair second at Plumpton 16 days ago.
Prediction : 1st Exciting News 2nd Executive Pool 3rd Graffiti

Lelantos arrives in good heart after some solid efforts over the smaller obstacles and he merits respect on his chase debut. GETTHEPOT comes with risks attached after a heavy fall at Worcester last month, but prior to that the Fergal O'Brien-trained inmate had shaped like this extra distance would unlock some improvement and he gets the vote. Jean Genie remains a maiden after 21 starts under Rules but he's still respected, with Voyburg another to consider.
Prediction : 1st Getthepot 2nd Lelantos 3rd Jean Genie

Of those who have form over hurdles, Great Heart'Jac is narrowly preferred to Rock Legend, with the latter having to concede weight to all of his rivals. The most intriguing horse in the race is COLLECTORS ITEM, who hails from the Jonjo 'Neill yard and created a good impression when last seen finishing second in a bumper at Newbury. The stoutly-bred son of Flemensfirth may prove better over further, but he makes the most appeal in this contest.
Prediction : 1st Collectors Item 2nd Great HeartJac 3rd Rock Legend

Moon King is sure to prove popular after winning at Worcester 34 days ago and and a 4lb rise shouldn't prevent the Charlie Longsdon inmate from being competitive. Dalileo is an interesting raider from Ireland for the 'Shark' Hanlon yard and he's one to consider in reapplied blinkers. However, JEN'S BOY makes most appeal after winning his latest race in the stewards' room, with a 4lb rise rating fair and there could be more to come over these staying distances.
Prediction : 1st Jens Boy 2nd Moon King 3rd Dalileo

Pens Man got no further than the first fence six days ago after being brought down, but he still remains one to be interested in after previously looking progressive. However, GLOIRE D'ATHON has more compelling claims after a rampant victory over C&D when last seen in June. A 6lb rise for that win looks workable and a bold bid looks assured with Aidan Coleman booked to ride once more. A Mere Bagatelle rates next best ahead of Eragon De Chanay.
Prediction : 1st Gloire DAthon 2nd Pens Man 3rd A Mere Bagatelle

16:00 Huntingdon

There could be more to come from SPARKLING DAWN, who pulled clear with her conqueror when second at Southwell in June. That was the mare's first start for the Laura Morgan yard and more improvement could be forthcoming. Samatian could prove the biggest threat after running well when last seen in April and a subsequent wind operation could unlock some potential. Runwiththetide is another to consider now dropped in class, along with the unexposed Alghazaal.
Prediction : 1st Sparkling Dawn 2nd Samatian 3rd Runwiththetide

It is hard to look past BELLS OF STAMFORD, who recorded his best run to date over a furlong further at Ayr in May. A drop in trip should not faze him, given he led clearly from the second-last fence during that contest, and he looks capable of giving another good account off a 4lb higher mark. A shorter test looks set to suit Miss Bamby, who weakened over 2m7f last month, while Cobbs Corner completes the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Bells Of Stamford 2nd Miss Bamby 3rd Cobbs Corner

A case can be made for several of these newcomers, but POLEMON boasts an exceptionally appealing pedigree and shades the vote in this. His dam is an unraced half-sister to the top-class sire Dansili, as well as three-time Group 1 winner Champs Elysees. The selection is also a full-brother to Weekender, who finished runner-up in two Listed contests over 1m6f, and he could give a good account on debut. Notimeforanother is another well-bred type, while Aldershot completes the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Polemon 2nd Notimeforanother 3rd Aldershot
