My Ticketyboo was a game winner on his most recent outing over this C&D last month, but that was arguably the result of a falling handicap mark and he could find things much tougher under a 7lb penalty. So, the fact BALINESKER BEACH retains the same mark following a pleasing third on his handicap bow at Southwell last November has to make him of significant interest stepping up in trip. Gavroche D'alliealso also warrants a market check with his most recent run in mind.
Prediction : 1st Balinesker Beach 2nd Gavroche Dallier 3rd My Ticketyboo

UNIT SIXTYFOUR arrives on a hat-trick bid stepping up in trip from his most recent victory over 2m2f at this course last month. He does have to shoulder a 7lb penalty for that success, but Beau Morgan takes the reigns of the gelded son of Sholokhov and knocks the same amount off with his claim, so he seems to remain well treated. Pawpaw posted a much-improved second on his most recent run over an extended 2m4f at Plumpton and is feared most, ahead of Haldon Hill.
Prediction : 1st Unit Sixtyfour 2nd Pawpaw 3rd Haldon Hill

It could pay to side with the grade-dropping KILBEG KING, who struggled in the Challow Hurdle at Newbury last December and is entitled to improve at this level. He does have to shoulder a 7lb penalty for his penultimate success over 2m4f at Ffos Las, but that may not be enough to stop him bouncing back to winning form. Red Windsor secured a clear-cut victory on his most recent outing over 2m3f and can give the selection most to think about, while Star Flyer also merits consideration.
Prediction : 1st Kilbeg King 2nd Red Windsor 3rd Star Flyer

Gary Moore has his string in fine form and could add to his tally here with OZZIE MAN, a winner over an extended 2m7f at Lingfield in November who hinted a return to further was needed when narrowly held off this mark over 2m4f at Huntingdon last Monday. Windance is only 1lb higher than when scoring over this C&D 11 months ago and rates a big threat now back at this venue, while A Time To Shine ran well in defeat over 3m at Exeter last month and a further 2lb drop in the ratings could see him go close.
Prediction : 1st Ozzie Man 2nd Windance 3rd A Time To Shine

With Olly Murphy firing in the winners of late, SAN FERMIN must be considered closely on his return from a break. A bumper winner in the summer of 2021, Aidan Coleman's mount showed signs of promise when making the frame over an extended 2m and 2m5f over timber and this intermediate trip could prove ideal. Tapley made a bold bid from the front when just denied in a 2m novice hurdle at Plumpton a week ago and would be dangerous if allowed an easy lead. Auriferous was useful on the Flat and he hinted at ability when finishing fourth on his hurdling debut over 2m at Huntingdon last month.
Prediction : 1st San Fermin 2nd Tapley 3rd Auriferous

MAD ABOUT SALLY needs to put her latest flop over hurdles at Ffos Las behind her, but she created a good impression when winning in good style over a similar extended 2m5f at Hereford in December and, given her point-to-point background, she may regain the winning thread on this chase debut. Whatsdastory may pose the biggest threat now eased into a class 4 contest and she races off the same mark as her Hereford win in October. C&D winner Tazka makes most appeal of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Mad About Sally 2nd Whatsdastory 3rd Tazka

Force De Frap is likely to prove popular after completing the double at Wincanton last month and isn't taken lightly, even with a 12lb hike in the ratings for his last victory. However, TAMARIS may offer more value after running a respectable fourth on his stable/seasonal debut over C&D in December and a recent spin on the Flat should see him close to peak fitness. Sawpit Sienna was last seen bouncing back to winning ways after a 55-day absence at Taunton in January and merits consideration off 6lb higher.
Prediction : 1st Tamaris 2nd Force De Frap 3rd Sawpit Sienna
