As ever at the moment of yr, there are few yards in pretty much as good type as Venetia Williams’ secure, together with final week’s straightforward winner FUNAMBULE SIVOLA  , who bolted up by seven straightforward lengths on his debut over fences.
He took the whole lot in his stride at Wetherby and made gentle work of his rivals off a mark of 112. Though he has a brand new official score of 125, he runs off a mark of 119 on this race.
It’s a huge step up in school, however arguably the perfect of those over hurdles is Flinck  for coach Phillip Hobbs.
He was a giant eye-catcher on his seasonal reappearance at Chepstow in October earlier than seemingly not staying 3m at Cheltenham on his most up-to-date outing. If he takes to fences, he could possibly be the horse to enhance most.
Regardless of largely disappointing in two begins this season, ESPION   has all the time promised to ship and has a superb alternative to take action at a course the place he stayed on to complete third final time.
He runs off the identical mark and is working over a visit simply shy of 3m for the second time in his profession, however this lightly-raced six-year-old could nicely have extra in hand than his mark of 128 would recommend.
Flemcara  was pulled up on this race final yr when going off a well-backed 8/1 shot, however the eight-year-old hasn’t proven something in two begins since.
He’s now dropped to a mark of 130 – 3lb decrease than his newest successful mark – so with situations in his favour, a return to type wouldn’t be the most important shock.
15:15 EXETER
On what’s an excellent card at Exeter, the marathon staying chase over 3m 6f is considerably of a minefield with there being a handful of well-handicapped horses.
PETITE POWER   ran very nicely at Cheltenham final time to complete a staying-on fourth and a replica of that run would see the topweight go shut underneath Liam Harrison, who claims an extra 7lb off his again.
Different well-handicapped horses who will respect the situations are Dawson Metropolis  and the lightly-raced and unexposed Some Element  , each of whom might run big races.
This can be a wide-open Mares’ Handicap Hurdle and a case could possibly be made for every of the 9 declared runners.
Regardless of the yard but to be firing on all cylinders, Warren Greatrex’s MISS HONEY RYDER   has some excellent bumper type within the bag and could possibly be very aggressive.
She was a superb second at Wincanton final season earlier than working out a superb winner at Huntingdon in February.
She was pulled up on her solely begin this season, but when she will be able to put that behind her and proceed together with her development from final season, she could possibly be overpriced.
