 JCB Triumph Trial Juvenile Hurdle (Qualifier) (2) 2m179y

Betting Forecast

$3.25 Fanfan du Seuil, $3.5 Protektorat, $6 Fret d’Estruval, $9 Katpoli, $11 Nelson River, $23 Swordbill, $26 Ghost Serge

Analyst’s Verdict

Protektorat made an encouraging start to his career when second in listed company in France in the autumn and is selected to make the most of the weight he receives from the previous winners in this line-up. Fanfan du Seuil has made a good start for Tom George and is respected, while the Alan King French recruit Fred d’Estruval would very much enter the reckoning if the betting speaks for him.

Ryman Novices’ Chase (2) 2½m127y

Betting Forecast

$3.75 Ok Corral, $5 Jenkins, $5.5 Drovers Lane, $5.5 Le Breuil, $6.5 The Russian Doyen, $23 Dentley de Mee

Analyst’s Verdict

Ok Corral could have been found an easier opening over fences but he was comfortably the best of these over hurdles and appeals as the sort who’ll prove at least as good in this sphere. He shades the vote in receipt of weight from exciting chase prospects The Russian Doyen and Drovers Lane.

 Cheltenham Club Handicap Chase (2) 2m62y

Betting Forecast

$3 Bun Doran, $4.5 Top Gamble, $5 Yorkist, $8 Ozzie The Oscar, $9 Hell’s Kitchen, $15 Theinval

Analyst’s Verdict

Top Gamble is expected to be sharper with last month’s Newbury reappearance behind him and might be worth chancing off a mark now 3 lb lower than when a fine third in the Grand Annual at the Festival in March. Bun Doran returned with an improved effort when scoring readily here last month and a 10 lb rise is unlikely to prevent another bold bid. Hell’s Kitchen may prove best of the rest.

 Caspian Caviar Gold Cup Handicap Chase (Grade 3) (1) 2½m127y

Betting Forecast

$4.5 Rather Be, $8.5 Baron Alco, $10 Frodon, $12 Full Glass, $13 Guitar Pete, $13 War Sound, $15 Mr Medic, $17 Catamaran du Seuil, $19 Casablanca Mix, $21 Foxtail Hill, $23 Cepage, $29 Cobra de Mai, $34 Romain de Senam, $34 Splash of Ginge, $51 Casse Tete

Analyst’s Verdict

Rather Be looked to be going great guns when brought down 4 out in the Betvictor and compensation could await now. Baron Alco and Frodon filled the first two positions in that contest and look sure to figure again, with the latter having won this race in 2016. Full Glass appeared to be in the process of running creditably when unseating on his return and is also shortlisted.

Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle (Bristol) (Grade 2) (1) 2m7f213y

Betting Forecast

$3.25 Aye Aye Charlie, $3.75 Doux Pretender, $8 Supremely Lucky, $10 Rockpoint, $11 Danny Whizzbang, $13 Rocco, $19 Lisnagar Oscar, $67 Three Bullet Gate, $101 Lough Derg Diamond

Analyst’s Verdict

Aye Aye Charlie will need to jump better than he did at Kelso last month, but his fourth-placed finish in Grade 1 company to end last season is comfortably the best form on offer. There are of course promising rivals in opposition, notably Doux Pretender and Supremely Lucky.

Unibet International Hurdle (Grade 2) (1) 2m179y

Betting Forecast

$3.75 Summerville Boy, $6.5 We Have A Dream, $8 Western Ryder, $9 Brain Power, $9.5 The New One, $10 Old Guard, $10 Silver Streak, $17 Vision des Flos

Analyst’s Verdict

It could be worth chancing We Have A Dream who represents connections who won this with a similar 4-y-o in 2011. He’s not been quite at his best in 2 runs this season but there is a good chance this sort of test and a reunion with Daryl Jacob will see him back to the sort of form that saw him win 2 Grade 1s earlier this year. Western Ryder could be the main danger ahead of Summerville Boy.

OLBG.com Mares’ Handicap Hurdle (2) 2½m56y

Betting Forecast

$6.5 Ratoute Yutty, $7 Definitelyanoscar, $7.5 Sensulano, $8 Petticoat Tails, $9 Giveaway Glance, $10 Oscar Rose, $11 Queen’s Magic, $12 Chilli Filli, $15 Brillare Momento, $29 Miss Mash

Analyst’s Verdict

The most interesting one here is the lightly-raced Ratoute Yutty, who should benefit from this longer trip and an opening mark in the low 120s could underestimate her. Last month’s Ascot 1-2 Sensulano and Petticoat Tails are likely to go well again, while Definitelyanoscar is another low-mileage sort who should have more to give now handicapping.
