LES'S LEGACY arrives here having won two of his last three starts and a 6lb rise for the most recent of those victories may not be enough to stop him. Benito failed to fire at Ayr last time but is a player based on two previous second-placed finishes, while Fenna's Loss edges out Sheriff Garrett to be the pick of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Less Legacy 2nd Benito 3rd Fennas Loss

12:30 Hexham

Event Of Sivola has to be respected having scored over 4m here three weeks ago, although the drop in trip and 5lb rise in the ratings will make his life tougher. With that in mind, preference is for SIR APOLLO, who got off the mark at Sedgefield recently and the seven-year-old remains open to further improvement. Others to note are Myburg and Onestepatatime.
Prediction : 1st Sir Apollo 2nd Event Of Sivola 3rd Myburg

13:05 Hexham

RUBY ISLAND lacks hurdling experience but she was fourth in a decent Listed bumper at Cheltenham last month and that form gives her a big chance in a race of this nature. Royale Dance scored over course and distance last month and may prove to be the main threat to the selection, although Miss Lamb also merits a place on the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Ruby Island 2nd Royale Dance 3rd Miss Lamb

13:40 Hexham

Graystown had been knocking on the door until coming to grief at the third last at this track last month. He can go well off a 1lb lower mark, but CASH AGAIN made a pleasing return to fences on his most recent run at Sedgefield and can build on a good second stepping fractionally up in trip. Lovely Moon disappointed over timber in October but could come on for that now back over fences.
Prediction : 1st Cash Again 2nd Graystown 3rd Lovely Moon

14:15 Hexham

CAMDONIAN makes his return to maiden company following a disappointing run in a handicap at Uttoxeter last month, and can improve in this sphere. His penultimate outing over this C&D in March saw him denied by the narrowest of margins, so he looks capable of being in the mix. Choosethenews bolted up on his sole outing in a point-to-point in April and is feared on his Rules debut, while Captain Westie completes the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Camdonian 2nd Choosethenews 3rd Captain Westie

14:50 Hexham

Although he's officially running from 1lb out of the handicap, CHEMICAL WARFARE makes most appeal. He's not been seen since finishing a respectable second over hurdles here in June and looks to be off an attractive mark for his debut over the larger obstacles. Follow Your Arrow chased home Treshnish over C&D last month and is entitled to strip fitter this time around, while the same comments apply to Fourth Of July.
Prediction : 1st Chemical Warfare 2nd Follow Your Arrow 3rd Fourth Of July

15:25 Hexham

Although he's yet to get off the mark in seven starts, PIAFF BUBBLES appears to be heading in the right direction and gets the vote. He was a narrow runner-up here three weeks ago when staying on well and this extra half a mile may bring about further improvement. Robbie Dazzler has been raised 2lb for his agonising defeat over C&D last month and is due a change of luck soon. Brian Hughes is reunited with Storm Force One and she is another to consider.
Prediction : 1st Piaff Bubbles 2nd Robbie Dazzler 3rd Storm Force One
