3pts win PROSPECT WELLS 3.9/1 ( both exchanges) Tangle Teaser Top Novices´ Hurdle

With the ground now on the good side and hopefully not too many showers forecast, Prospect Wells looks certain to go close in this. Despite staying on in the Supreme Novices, he does not need a more testing track and should be travel well enough around here. There is not much between him and Darlan on the Cheltenham form and they are hard to split but at the odds available Prospect Wells is the bet.

Lost - 3pts

3pts win ALBERTAS RUN 3/1( 2 firms inc Hills)John Smith´s Melling Chase Grade

This likeable gelding is at his most effective around here, at this trip and on ground on the good side and is sure to go close to repeating his success in this event two years ago. He showed himself to be as good as ever last time out and it is more than possible that Finians Rainbow will not be at his optimum at this trip.

Lost - 3pts

1.5pts win GOLDEN CALL 23/1 (Betfair) John Smith´s Sefton Novices´ Hurdle
1.5pts win LOVCEN 15.5/1 (Betfair) John Smith´s Sefton Novices´ Hurdle

There are dangers aplenty to the first two in the forecast here and it could be worth taking aboard a couple at double fig odds.

Golden Call has improved markedly recently and this track should suit his front running style. On the book his level of form is around a stone behind Fingal Bay, but there is probably further improvement to come and he is already on par with most of these.

Lovcen ran a fairish race at Cheltenhem but is certain to race closer to the pace here. The stable showed they were in good form here yesterday and a prominent display is on the cards from this one.

Lovcen won + 20.75 pts
