14:30 (Hereford) Famoso

Famoso has some strong course form in the book this season ahead of the Download The Racing App Now Novices’ Handicap Chase.

Matt Sheppard’s eight-year-old has been first, second and third here since mid-December and seems to have been suited by dropping back down to two miles of late.


15:30 (Hereford) Jack Doyen

Jack Doyen gained compensation for falling three out in a promising position at Leicester by running out a ready winner at this venue last time out.

That victory was achieved despite some understandably cautious leaps and a quick double could be on the cards in the Enjoy The Racing App For Free Handicap Chase.


16:00 (Hereford) Rockola

Rockola showed plenty of promise delivering first two starts finishing third at Stratford and Doncaster before unseating the rider at the final hurdle at Wetherby over two miles.

Open to further improvement and should be a serious player in the Try The Racing App This Afternoon Fillies' Junior 'National Hunt' Hurdle.

That'swhatshesaid made a winning debut at Newcastle contesting a two mile jumpers flat race before a Sedgefield fifth. Can improve further providing first hurdle outing and makes for appeal.

Crystal Glance holds claims on paper and is worth a second look in the betting and is an interesting newcomer.


17:00 (Hereford) El Granjero

El Granjero is proving consistent with a good maiden hurdle second here preceding a nine length success contesting a 2m3 1/2f maiden hurdle at this venue.

Hermes Boy found success by two and a half lengths tackling a heavy ground handicap hurdle at Wincanton before pulling up at Exeter. Respect as set to bounce back.

River Of Joy did well last year including a narrow victory in a novices hurdle at Southwell two runs ago. Shortlist making seasonal return.
