Four runners across three meetings today.
1.30 - Nye Bevan Has shown good improvement of late including a couple of close up runs on the all-weather flat, then just beaten a neck on his return to hurdles at Plumpton eight days ago. That was over 2m on good ground and under the same conditions here must go close again from the same mark of 90. Jamie Neild rides and claims 10lbs.
1.50 - Felicissimus Finished 8th of 11 over 2m on soft ground on his stable debut. Still inexperinced, needed the run, but steps up in trip here to 2m 5f which we expect will be to his benefit. The good ground may also see some more from him. Jordan Nailor in the saddle, takes off 3lbs.
5.20 - Sinister Minister Made his racecourse debut three weeks ago in a Catterick bumper with an encouraging 4th of 9 on soft ground. Has come on for the experience and another who may benefit from the faster ground here. More to come, Jordan rides.
2.15 - Torn And Frayed Has been in fair form this term, winning a 2m 4f handicap hurdle at Hereford off of 122 two outings ago, then runner up from 7lb higher at Kelso just over 3 weeks ago. Back in novices company today, he meets just four rivals and looks the form pick over this 2m 4f. Suited by the ground too, a good run expected. Sam Twiston-Davies aboard.
