12:45 ASCOT
The opening contest at Ascot is a Handicap Hurdle for conditional jockeys over a visit of 2m 5f.
There isn’t any telling how a lot enchancment Dr Richard Newland can eke out of Sport Socks, who received gamely at Plumpton on his English debut two weeks in the past, however his 12lb rise seems steep.
JACAMAR has stored on enhancing this season and, as a five-year-old, he’s inclined to maintain on doing so.
He received a scorching race at Aintree earlier this season and has backed that up with two good runs, ending fourth on each begins since. A replica of his newest fourth at Newbury will see him bang there.
At a a lot larger worth, The Eaglehaslanded is now very well-handicapped on the most effective of his previous type. In two begins this season he has coming again to his former self.
He’s the older horse on this subject however remains to be so lightly-raced, and whereas he fell at Cheltenham final time, he simply took off too early.
He stays properly and I believe he’ll run a giant race if that fall hasn’t left a mark on him.
14:10 NAVAN
As you’d anticipate, this Grade B Handicap Hurdle is fiercely aggressive.
KING ALEX has racked up a hat-trick of successes this season and retains on profitable with a bit to spare – he may additionally nonetheless be enhancing. 
Nonetheless, his leaping has been a bit of situation that he has managed to get away with in lesser races, however he may be came upon going up in grade.
Snugsborough Corridor may be very well-handicapped on his hurdles mark in opposition to his chase mark. He’s but to win this season however has run properly in two begins and will go shut right here underneath Denis O’Regan.
With out Limites may be very inconsistent however on his day he may win a race of this nature. He likes to go from the entrance and if he will get a simple lead he could possibly be onerous to peg again.
14:40 SOUTHWELL
Horses in type usually take some stopping on the Southwell fibresand floor – loads of horses don’t act on the observe, however those that do are sometimes ridden helpful.
THE RETRIEVER usually goes properly at Southwell and was a superb winner right here on the finish of November off a mark of 46.
He was then raised 5lb to a mark of 51 and, whereas he was overwhelmed on his newest begin over course and distance, he ran properly behind a horse that’s now rated 67.
There seems to be mileage in his mark, and I anticipate him to go properly underneath Jack Garritty.
15:15 SOUTHWELL
FAIR PRAISE wouldn’t need to be a world-beater to win this race off her opening mark of 55.
She ran in some good novice races and wasn’t devoid of promise on both event, regardless of the naked type determine telling a unique story.
The large query is how properly she is going to address this floor, however she was fourth on an artificial observe at Wolverhampton final month.
Popple has run properly at this observe earlier than and, if the five-year-old can’t win off this mark of 49, you’d need to query whether or not he’ll ever be capable to get his head in entrance.
I believe he’ll run a giant race underneath Luke Morris.
