1.5pts win KUMBESHWAR 7/1 (Generally available) William Hill H'cap Hdle
1.5pts win A MEDIA LUZ 8/1 ( 3 firms inc Ladbrokes) William Hill H'cap Hdle

Alan King had two winners yesterday which increases the liklehood that Kumbeshwar will line up fairly straight on his first run since the Punchestown festival.After losing out when giving a stone away to the winner in the Fred Winter he then found only one to good in the big juvenile events at Aintree and Punchestown.He has a good opportunity to start this campaign off on a winning note.

A Media Luz was disappointing at both Cheltenham and Aintree after things looked to have come together with a visually impressive win at Huntingdon. There are signs that the Henderson horses are about to hit form and, towards the bottom of the handicap. she is worth another chance here.

Lost - 3pts

2pts win POQUELIN 3/1 (Betfair) Bet365 Charlie Hall Chase
1pt win WEIRD AL 8/1 (Generally available)Bet 365 Charlie Hall Chase

The withdrawal of Diamond Harry has taken much of the buzz away from this renewal but its still worth getting involved and at around the 3/1 mark Poquelin's staminia is worth chancing. After finishing off his novice chase campaign in 08/09 with his form flattening out a bit he never really appealed as one who would make much more progress but he has gone on and proved himself a real hardy,reliable performer and it would be no surprise if he is able to reproduce his form over this sort of distance.

Weird Al remains unexposed. Lightly raced and difficult to train there is no doubting that he has bags of ability and he is a threat to all on his first start for his new yard.

Weird Al won + 6pts
