13:32 (Huntingdon) Flamelco

FLAMELCO (1) failed to complete in two of his four chase outings however looks a future winner otherwise. Headed late tackling 2m3 1/2f at Fontwell in latest and this slight drop in trip might suit.

YELLOW JACKET (5) ground out a narrow victory at Bangor and is now just 4.4lb higher. May get involved.

Hurdle winner FERRYBRIDGE (4) was well beaten on chasing debut at Fakenham. Entitled to improve. SUPERSTYLIN (3) won on chasing debut at Lingfield (2mf) during November. Finished third delivering recent comeback and is another to consider.



14:07 (Huntingdon) Awesome Foursome

AWESOME FOURSOME (3) was withdrawn from racing at Fakenham on Friday to run here. She won a Perth handicap from 5.5lb lower in September and remained generally consistent subsequently. Decent prospects with rider taking off a handy allowance.

NO WAY PEDRO (1) completed a hat-trick last summer. Absent since winning a 2m4f handicap hurdle at Worcester in July. Key player if ready to go.

The consistent SAILED AWAY (6) went close to breaking his maiden tackling 2m3f at Wetherby last month. Holds solid claims from 2.2lb higher. GLANCE AT ME (8) is another for the shortlist.


14:42 (Huntingdon) Roccovango

ROCCOVANGO (10) finished second in a handicap here on debut racing for Olly Murphy. Now wears first-time cheekpieces reverting to maiden company. Sets the standard.

ARTHURIAN FABLE (1) performed with credit in two maiden hurdles at Newbury. Finds something easier and is one for the shortlist with further improvement likely.

Irish jumpers flat race winner LAND AFAR (5) has been off the track since May 2022. Betting to give an idea as to expectations. DASHER (3) was soundly beaten on hurdling debut. Earlier showed promise in jumpers flat races.


15:17 (Huntingdon) Loup De Maulde

LOUP DE MAULDE (1) is without a win in six fences outings. Performed well from a higher hurdle mark in recent months and might be able to make the breakthrough.

REGARDE (3) scored twice here tackling fences earlier in the season however arrives on the back of a fall. Could prove a leading chance if confidence remains intact.

Chasing debutant MINELLA DOUBLE (2) wears first-time cheekpieces after pulling up at Ffos Las. This former point-to-point and hurdle winner demands respect.

POKER MASTER (5) has been inconsistent this season. Previously won here hurdling and might stage a revival.



15:52 (Huntingdon) Wise Guy

WISE GUY (5) opened his account with a 3.25L success tackling this trip at Lingfield. Receives a 4.4lb rise and after only five hurdle starts is open to improvement.

HAVOCK (3) disappointed since finishing second in a Stratford novice during November. Might do better making his handicap debut.

Course and distance winner AT A PINCH (4) is enduring a wretched season however now 2.2lb below her last winning mark can be considered. VITANI (7) makes for some appeal on the back of wind surgery debuting for Dan Skelton.


16:27 (Huntingdon) Hola Hermosa

HOLA HERMOSA (6) represents a stable who goes well in this sphere. Closely related to several horses that either won or ran well in jumpers flat races and a bold showing is anticipated on debut.

LONGHOUSE LEGACY (7) attracted market support ahead of her two starts in jumpers flat races. Might be capable of better.

The Jet Away debutante HELLO CELLO (5) hails from a yard always to be feared in a contest such as this. CORRAN SANDS (2) looks good on paper and is another newcomer to note.
