FERROBIN was already looking like a future winner before having a wind operation that should bring further improvement.

He was last seen finishing a good second here in November when going well for a long way until being run out of it in the closing stages.
He wouldn’t need a lot more to win this.
Jimmy The Digger was an impressive winner of a Ludlow bumper last time and should make a nice hurdler.
Sammy Bill weakened in the closing stages of his debut at Exeter last time and should come on for that.

SWEET ADARE almost pulled off front-running tactics when finishing second at Taunton last time out.
Making all often works around Huntingdon and she wouldn’t have to improve more to strike.
Little Millie has been thereabouts on all her starts and was beaten just over two lengths here last time. A first-time visor could help bring about more improvement.
Rose To Fame has had a breathing operation since finishing third at Southwell last time and that could help.
STATION MASTER looked as though he was capable of winning a race like this when second on his first two runs over fences.
He was poor at Doncaster but it’s too early to write him off and this distance suits.
Equus Secretus has shown his best form over this distance and showed promise on his chase debut at Ludlow before a modest effort last time. This track should suit him well.

DYLIEV has been consistent and won well here last time after a first and second at Warwick in January. She is up just 3lb for that solid effort and we know this track suits well.
Thounder is another who likes it around here and was third behind Dyliev last time. He made a couple of jumping errors and would be more of a threat if ironing those out.
Tierra Verde won well at Taunton two runs ago before another good third at Kempton last time. She should be thereabouts off the same mark.
LITTLE BRUCE has come the closest of these to winning lately with a couple of good runs at Catterick. He faces a different track here but looks handicapped to go close again.
Bishops Road is taking a big drop in class after finishing sixth in the Haydock Grand National Trial last time out. The yard is in fair nick so it would be no shock to see him find his best form.
Duke Debarry is a real stayer so should appreciate this longer distance after finishing fifth at Kempton last time.
SAD LOSS Man named who died at Dundalk racecourse on Friday evening
AUENWIRBEL battled well to be beaten on the nod at Lingfield last time out. He came from a long way back that day and would have every chance if running closer to the pace today.
Stonemadforspeed is quirky but has been on his best behaviour including when winning well at Taunton last time. He’s up a fair 4lb for that.
Sweet N Chic enjoyed herself when scoring here latest but an 8lb rise means he needs more.
FUSEAU comes from Alan King who has an excellent record at Huntingdon. He should find this a lot easier than the Listed race he finished a good fourth in at Cheltenham last time out. He had trouble in running for good measure and this longer drip should help too.
Alph looked decent on debut before a modest run at Newbury last time. He is capable of bouncing back from that.
Namib Dancer wasn’t asked too many questions on debut last time and is open to lots of improvement.
