2.20 Jack The Legend 3-1
.Has course and distance from but hasn’t won here since 2015 but recent 3rd suggests of a return to form only danger is Joseph Mercer who has won last 2 and bids for a hat-trick although has weight increase and that could swing the race in Jack The Legend’s favour.
3.30 Antarctica De Thaix 7-2
.Won novice chase at Bangor on 10th February by 49 lengths and if in same mood here could easily go in again and with Sam Twiston Davies on board looks the one to be on here.
4.30 Lithic 4-1
. Hasn’t won since 2015 when winning a bumper hurdle at Southwell over 2m on soft ground has been racing over further but drops back to ideal trip on ideal going and could cause an upset here.
