16.50 – At The Races App Expert Tips Novices’ Hurdle
The Milton Harris-trained KOMEDY KICKS wandered all over the shop at the last hurdle at Worcester last time when she slightly caused interference with the eventual second but still found loads off the bridle to win with a shade to spare and has plenty more to come. Harry Cobden retains the ride and she is fancied to double her tally over timber.
Selections: KOMEDY KICKS

HE’S A LATCHLO won three times on the Flat last year and, after three runs over hurdles, he drops in grade ahead of his handicap debut. He should figure with Jamie Moore in the saddle, while MISTRAL LADY hit the frame twice in her first two hurdle starts and ran her best race in a handicap when third last-time-out. She is considered.
Selections: HE’S A LATCHLO, MISTRAL LADY
17.55 – Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase
JERRASH has been a little disappointing the last two times but will find this race easier and is only 3Ib higher than when scoring in this grade at Plumpton. He should be hard to beat, though ANY NEWS and FAROUK DE CHENEAU are worthy rivals and have the ability to go very close off their marks. I think one of the three will win as the other participant needs a personal best.
Selections: JERRASH, ANY NEWS, FAROUK DE CHENEAU

IN THE AIR should be winning this if able to replicate his second at Taunton. He split two horses rated higher than him and is thrown in here off a mark of 120. Gary and Jamie Moore can land this race with this unexposed five-year-old who is eased in class. If for some reason the former underperforms, which looks doubtful, WATERGRANGE JACK might be the one to pick up the pieces.
Selections: IN THE AIR, WATERGRANGE JACK

MIDNIGHT GOLD has shown up pretty well in all three starts for this yard since coming over from Ireland to start her new life and is 3Ib lower than when third here in November. She has a squeak under Harry Cobden, while BABY SHAM displayed a nice attitude to score at Fakenham last time and should also be competitive if turning up in similar form here.
Selections: MIDNIGHT GOLD, BABY SHAM

MILLIES MITE is still a maiden with no success but she has acquitted herself well off higher marks to suggest she is capable of winning a race like this. She makes the shortlist, while MARTIN SPIRIT has run well the last two times and was second over C&D in this month last year off a 6Ib higher mark, so he should play a leading role.
Selections: MILLIES MITE, MARTIN SPIRIT
