SCRIPTWRITER 1640 SEDGEFIELD (nap) – (2nd – 9-2) this was pretty smart on the flat and isn't a bad hurdler. He saves his best for here and has two course and distance successes at this class and on this ground. Has to have a big chance on that.
KAUTO STONE 1730 PUNCHESTOWN (nb) – (PU) has really disappointed on his last two runs in the King George and the Cleeve Hurdle. He reverts back to the bigger obstacles and slighty better ground will hopefully help too. He also has good form in Ireland and defeated First Lieutenant at Down Royal earlier in the season. Has been kept fresh for this and is a huge price in my opinion.
NOVIRAK 1450 EPSOM (treble) – (3rd – 11-1) has run twice here with victory last time and a narrow defeat before that. He has the ground he prefers and will hopefully be competitive and run a good race.
I will also have a sheckle on one of my cliff horses DEGAS ART 1735 PERTH (PU) who won well a few times last year but hasn't show anything yet. However, he was unseated early last time and will appreciate the trip and ground.

MIAS BOY 1630 WOLVES (nap) – (3rd – 4-1) ultraconsistent and will run another good race. I'm hoping for a strong pace to be set, mostly the case herevat Wolves in a race like this. If that happens then he has a better than good chance.
BACK IN FOCUS 1840 PUNCHESTOWN (nb) – (unplaced) won well again a Cheltenham and I think his juming will hold up better than his stable companions and he will take this.
JEZKI 1620 PUNCHESTOWN (treble) – (WON – 2-1) I thought he ran really well at the festival and if he would have jumped the last better he would have been closer. He caught the flight and lost momentum. Back on home soil I can see him reversing the form.

So, on to Friday’s tips :
OVERLADY 1435 PERTH – (nap) (PU) won well at Ayr in January on soft ground then fell trying to follow that win up in heavy ground. Has since come 4th in good to soft ground. With the ground softening all the more, she must have an outstanding each way chance at a great price (4 points each way)
STRIDENT FORCE 1455 SANDOWN – (nb) (unplaced) ran some creditable races last year and will be one that should improve now handicapping. Has ran well on good to soft and Stoute has won this race in twice in the last 4 years. (3 points each way)
FELIX YONGER 1805 PUNCHESTOWN – (treble) (unplaced) ran an excellent race when second to Simonsig at the festival. Has form that reads 2211 on soft or heavy ground. Stable in form, must have a great chance. (2 point win)
STAKE = 16 points
RETURNS = 0 points
BANK = 71.25 points
