The first race of the second day at Aintree sees the Grade Three Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle over 2m4f and with a huge field set to be involved we have two each way punts.
The first is the reliable Edwardstone for Alan King that has been knocking on the door in handicap events this season and is due to land a big one.
The gelding finished second to Chantry House in a bumper two seasons ago and was then sent over hurdles and was unbeaten on his first two starts winning at Wincanton on debut seeing off Grade One winner Fiddlerontheroof.
He backed that up at Aintree when seeing off Harry Senior that since went on to land a Grade Two at Cheltenham, but then ran below par in a four runner Grade Two at Haydock to finish second.
He then stepped up to the Supreme Novices' Hurdle and finished a fair sixth of the 15 runners, being beaten by better horses on the day but still running to a high level.
Back again for this season he was pitched straight into the deep end finishing fifth in the Grade Three Greatwood Handicap Hurdle at Cheltenham.
After the chase debut did not work out when last seen, King sent him back over hurdles and it was the right move when landing a Handicap Hurdle with ease at Market Rasen.
He used that as a prep run to then head to Newbury for the Betfair Hurdle and he managed to stay on well to grab third behind Soaring Glory.
Still in fine spirits, last time out he went to the Cheltenham festival and was again staying on well in the finish to grab fifth in the big fielded County Hurdle.
Although now fairly high in the weights he has some of the best form on offer and the step up to 2m4f is sure to suit.
