121 1. AERO MAJESTIC David Pipe David Noonan

Analyst’s Verdict:
If The Cap Fits and Enniscoffey Oscar ran well in a Grade 2 bumper at Aintree, usually one of the strongest of the season, when last seen, and look exciting recruits to hurdling, Harry Fry’s charge is narrowly preferred here. Blu Cavalier has a long absence to overcome but should be ready to go on his return starting out for Paul Nicholls. Station Master is another runner to keep an eye on.

117 6. MISTER DRIFTER David Pipe David Noonan

Analyst’s Verdict:
Good Man Pat ticks plenty of boxes ahead of his hurdles debut for Alan King, not least as he won a point by 12 lengths when last seen, and he can make a successful start in this sphere. Challico is interesting back from an absence for Paul Nicholls, while Master Work is also worth a look starting out for Philip Hobbs.

129 4. AFTER EIGHT SIVOLA Nick Williams Lizzie Kelly (3)

Analyst’s Verdict:
It took a while, but Pengo’s Boy got off the mark over hurdles at Newton Abbot last month, and while this is clearly a much deeper race, he was very impressive that day and remains with plenty of scope in this sphere given his earlier bumper form. Steely Addition and Hidden Cargo are unexposed handicap debutants for top yards and are just 2 possible threats.

126 3. MR MEDIC Robert Walford James Best
121§ 2. MOORLANDS JACK Jeremy Scott Nick Scholfield
120§ 8. THIRD ACT Colin Tizzard Tom O’Brien

Analyst’s Verdict:
Mr Medic should strip fitter for his recent run and is well handicapped on the pick of last season’s form. Last-time-out winners Moorlands Jack and Barton Rose are feared most, for all they’re far from certain to be in the same form this time around.

148p 3. WOTZIZNAME Harry Fry Noel Fehily

Analyst’s Verdict:
A potential match between Wotzizname and Coastal Tiep. Both are winning pointers and useful hurdlers, but the former looks more progressive so gets the vote.

111 9. COOLE CHARMER Neil Mulholland Noel Fehily

Analyst’s Verdict:
Kings Temptation showed much improved form when runner-up on handicap debut at Uttoxeter in June, and looks sure to win handicaps at this level. Minella Treasure and Coole Charmer are solid alternatives, while Eddy is another to consider after shaping better than the bare result last time.

110+ 1. SANDY COVE Olly Murphy Fergus Gregory (8)
109§ 14. CRUISE IN STYLE Kevin Bishop Ciaran Gethings

Analyst’s Verdict:
Despite going winless in this sphere last term, Grams And Ounces shaped well from higher marks on occasions and, having scored 3 times on the level in recent months, he could well be worth chancing. Magical Thomas arrives in good nick and is feared, while The Kvilleken hinted at a revival from his much-reduced mark latest.
