2pts win ROLLING STAR 9/1 (Generally available) Ladbroke Hurdle
1pt win PINE CREEK 20/1 (Generally available) Ladbroke Hurdle

At first instance Rolling Star may appear to have a very stiff task under his weight but he was visually impressive at Haydock last time and this was supported by his trainer's comments that he's a different proposition this season and a live Champion Hurdle contender. He clearly acts well in the soft and looks certain to give an excellent account of himself today.

Pine Creek needs to be travelling well  and stay unruffled. A return to this venue, where he beat Chris Pea Green in a handicap two outings ago, will be more his cup of tea than Cheltenham last time and he has prospects of turning the tables on those that finished ahead of him in the latter event.

Lost - 3pts
