2 pts win LANDIN 12/1 (at least eight firms)
1 pt win JESTERS JET 25/1( 3 firms inc PPower and Victor)
Alder Hey Children's Charity Hurdle

Landin is in great heart at the moment and decisively beat a very useful and reliable yardstick last time out. The testing conditions are ideal for him and he appeals as a likely winner of this event.

Jester's Jet hails from a yard that is on a notable upward curve. The horses are also in excellent form at the moment so everything is worth a second look. The combination of ground, trip and fast pace should be ideal for this one who should give a good account of himself.

Jester's Jet Won  + 23 pts

3 pts win MS PARFOIS 6/1 ( at least a dozen firms)
Mildmay Novices Chase

This is one of the most likeable mares in training and ran a gallant race when narrowly touched off in the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham. She is no slow coach however, is still progressing and can turn around the Kempton form with Black Corton who was a shade disappointing in the Sun Alliance.

Lost - 3 pts

1.5 pts win TOP GAMBLE 12/1 ( at least eleven firms)
1.5 pts win BALLYALTON  14/1 ( at least six firms)
Randox Health Topham

Top Gamble has some smart pieces of form in the book and arrives here on the back of a cracking run in the Grand Annual. The yard's other runner in that event came out and ran well here yesterday and this one looks a very likely type for this, being a safe conveyance nowadays and one who should handle the fences without a problem.

Ballyalton has not been the horse he promised to be when finishing runner up to Faugheen in the Neptune. His career has been shackled by setbacks and long absences but in the context of this event, he is is a mightly interesting contender and ran a pleasing race at Cheltenham last time.
