Ascot

Going: Heavy, soft in places  First race: 12.40  Weather: Sunny

Homer

Nicky Henderson

He came over to us in the autumn from France and made a pleasing debut over hurdles at Kempton where he jumped ok but made a mistake at the last which certainly didn’t help as he still might have won. He schooled over five hurdles yesterday and was absolutely fine and is in very good form at home. Goshen has looked very good so far and he’ll be tough to beat but our horse will handle the ground and will hopefully put up a decent show.

Papagana

Oliver Sherwood

Going there with a favourite’s chance, very happy with her run in the Long Walk, will love the ground and in great form!

Soul Emotion

Nicky Henderson

He’s gradually coming back to himself and I was very pleased with his latest run at Newbury when he was third giving plenty of weight to the winner and second horse. He’ll have no issue with the ground, his work has been very good and I really fancy him to run a very big race.

Falco Blitz

Nicky Henderson

He didn’t stay three miles at Cheltenham last time so we’re coming back down to 2m5f which is right up his street. He’s clear on ratings and I think he’ll go extremely close.

Thebannerkingrebel

Jamie Snowden

He won a Listed novice at the track on his last start in November and we’ve been planning to come here since before heading to the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at the Festival in March. He’s unbeaten over hurdles when he has completed, the only blip coming when he fell at the last with the race at his mercy under a double penalty. He was 2nd in the Grade 2 Aintree bumper last season, and has looked very talented. He’ll carry a 5lb penalty here, which won’t be easy, but he’s in great shape and I look forward to the challenge.

Pentland Hills

Nicky Henderson

I was extremely pleased with his first run of the season in the Unibet International Hurdle at Cheltenham where he travelled very much like the winner but just blew up two out yet still finished the race very well. His greatest asset is his jumping and he schooled excellently on Thursday morning so I couldn’t be happier with him going into this race. It’s obviously going to be very hard work for them out there and he won’t have encountered conditions like it before but he won on soft on the flat and his sire (Motivator) and dam both won on soft ground too, so hopefully, he’ll cope with it. It’s the same for everyone and he’s there to give it his best shot.

Gangster

Warren Greatrex

Finished much better last time out and had come on a lot between his first two runs after a long lay off. Will have improved again, and although I don’t think this ground will be his optimum, I think we will see a stronger performance again.

14/1













Lingfield

Going: Polytrack: Standard First race: 12.00   Weather: Sunny

12:00

Lambristo

Stan Moore

He is having his 2nd run after a break and is going better, he is having his first run in a handicap, he could go well at a big price, but is still very much a baby, even though he is a fine big horse.

Vino Rosso hoping the drop back to 6 furlongs and back on all weather more suitable than grass for the filly .

Illustrious Spirit

Ali Stronge

Ran well over CD a couple runs back, draw last time and over 5f didn't help, they are low grade horses but has shown he has the ability of things fall right for him.
