Citipost Novices' Hurdle - Peaky Boy

Course and Distance winner who showed hints of talents in bumpers for Michael Scudamore before being moved to Nicky Henderson’s yard.

Sent off a hot favourite for hurdle debut, he handled deep ground well and gave multiple subsequent winner Champagne Twist a beating in style at this venue on New Year’s Day.

Weatherbys Global Stallions App Handicap - Aberama Gold

A solid sprinter who got his head in front five times last season, including an impressive performance in the Sky Bet Dash.

Runs on the all-weather off his elevated mark have left him finishing mid division in handicaps or being well held in listed contests but that has seen his mark drop back to 97, only 1lbs above his last winning rating.

Kingston Stud Handicap Hurdle - Kasminas

An interesting looking novice hurdler this season who’s tasted success multiple times in the campaign, scoring a Grade two along the way.

Not disgraced in 10th in the Betfair Hurdle back in February, a step up to 2.5 miles and a drop into a novice event saw him get his head in front when last seen at Kempton.

Feilden Stakes - Gasper De Lemos

Looked a talented sort for Aidan O’Brien last year, despite being well beaten by Chief Little Rock on Debut, Gasper De Lemos broke his maiden nicely over 7 furlongs before stepping up in trip.

Last seen over 10 furlongs in the Zetland Stakes, he just found Arabian Crown a stronger stayer and only managed 2nd.

Silver Trophy Handicap Chase - Torn And Frayed

A course and Distance winner on Good ground back in January of 2022, Torn And Frayed has shown a tendency to go well at Cheltenham and looks most at home on good ground.

He hasn’t been disgraced on slow ground this season in the big handicaps over 2.5 miles at Cheltenham and has dropped in the weights to what looks a very attractive looking mark.

Earl Of Sefton Stakes - Ottoman Fleet

Last year’s winner of this race, Ottoman Fleet has followed a similar route this year having been running over in Meydan recently.

Second in a hot looking Group one, he was then sent off a warm favourite for a Group Two over this trip when last seen but failed to fire and ended up well beaten.

Nell Gwyn Stakes - Dance Sequence

A smart looking juvenile last season who won both of her racecourse starts.

Scoring in a maiden at Newmarket on the July Course over 7 furlongs before winning the Oh So Sharp stakes on the Rowley Mile in impressive fashion.
