VALGRAND displayed a high level of ability in bumpers and he made a seamless transition to hurdling when winning at Uttoxeter earlier this month. Despite the penalty, the five-year-old appears to have been found an ideal opportunity to follow up. Speed Davis must also shoulder a penalty but he is still the main danger, while Touchwoodexpress is most appealing of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Valgrand 2nd Speed Davis 3rd Touchwoodexpress

Although Le Cameleon has not been at his very best in recent starts, the nine-year-old finds himself on a competitive mark and should fare better eased in class on his second outing following wind surgery. Bagheera Ginge proved to be largely consistent over the larger obstacles last year and is worth considering ahead of his return, but it is LIPA K that shades preference. The son of Mamool made a successful fencing bow over an extended 2m1f here last month, so a 6lb rise might not be enough to stop him with improvement likely.
Prediction : 1st Lipa K 2nd Le Cameleon 3rd Bagheera Ginge

A step up in trip might hold the key to ELECTRIC JET's chances, and he is taken to build on a couple of promising efforts in maiden company now sent handicapping off a workable mark. Newtonian was on target over 3m1f at Warwick earlier this month and should be more than capable raised just 3lb in the ratings, while others to note include Josie Alice and Minniemum.
Prediction : 1st Electric Jet 2nd Newtonian 3rd Josie Alice

An interesting field includes the classy hurdler HOMETOWN BOY, who was a Grade 3 winner over the smaller obstacles. Third on his debut over fences, the nine-year-old fell at Newbury in February but may be worth another chance after three months off. Flaming Ambition won't be stopping over this trip judged on his narrow Uttoxeter victory and, from nearer the bottom of the weights, he could rival Stratford second Watergrange Jack in the race for the places.
Prediction : 1st Hometown Boy 2nd Flaming Ambition 3rd Watergrange Jack

Donald McCain has a good recent record in this race and Forcing Bull is one to note with Brian Hughes booked. Pulled up on his only two starts last season, the seven-year-old could do better if he settles here, but may have to give way to TEDLEY. Fourth in a higher grade at Hexham last time, he races off the same mark now and could make the most of the weaker opposition. Collingham and Finest View might battle it out for third spot.
Prediction : 1st Tedley 2nd Forcing Bull 3rd Collingham

20:25 Bangor-on-Dee

AL SAYAH is looking for a hat-trick under a 7lb penalty but Dylan Johnston's 5lb claim will help with that. An easy nine-length winer at Hereford on Friday, she is turned out quickly and could strike again at this level. Barrons Land may take them along and set the race up for the selection, although Special Dragon won with some ease at Ludlow and may prove the bigger danger.
Prediction : 1st Al Sayah 2nd Special Dragon 3rd Barrons Land
