1.30pm JLT Novices’ Chase ( 2m 4f )

TERREFORT ( 4-1 Paddy Power ) looks the one to beat based on his victory in a Grade 1 contest at Sandown last time under similar conditions. Invitation Only looks a big danger but may be better over further while Finian’s Oscar will need to jump better if he is to prove threat.

2.10pm Pertemps Handicap Hurdle ( 3m )

A GREAT VIEW can prove best of the JP McManus-owner four runners and rates better value at around 16-1 ( bet365 ) than favourite Glenloe as there is little between the pair on their form at Leopardstown just after Christmas. At a big price the consistent The Mighty Don is capable of going well for jockey Leighton Aspell.

2.50pm Ryanair Chase ( 2m 5f )

CUE CARD showed something like his old form when runner-up to the promising Waiting Patiently at Ascot last time and the winner of this race in 2013 looks better value at 6-1 ( Ladbrokes ) than hot favourite Un De Sceaux. Ruby Walsh’s mount is sure to make a bold bid to make all but could struggle to hold a back to form Cue Card in the closing stages.

3.30pm Sun Bets Stayers’ Hurdle ( 3m )

OLD GUARD is fancied to cause a major shock in a wide open renewal for which bookmakers go 4-1 the field. Sam Spinner, Supasundae and Yanworth all boast strong claims but at 33-1 ( Boylesports ) Paul Nicholls’ runner is overpriced based on his recent defeat of last year’s runner-up Lil Rockerfeller at Fontwell and could be even better over this kind of trip.

4.10pm Brown Advisory Handicap Chase ( 2m 5f )

BALLYALTON has some excellent form at Prestbury Park including when second to Faugheen in the 2014 Neptune Novices’ Hurdle. A festival winner in 2016 of the Close Brothers Chase the eleven-year-old will be running off his lowest mark since going chasing and is capable of a big run at the 16-1 offered by 10Bet. The Irish hold a strong hand with The Storyteller and Tully East while the unexposed King’s Socks looks to have been laid out for this by the Pipe stable.

4.50pm Trull House Novices’ Hurdle ( 2m 1f )

LAURINA could prove in a different league to her rivals which is reflected in her odds of 4-6 ( Boylesports ). Impressive winner at Tramore and Fairyhouse since joining trainer Willie Mullins from France the mare is an exciting prospect and should win this before going on to greater things. At around 14-1( Betfair Sportsbook ) Cap Soleil and jockey Paddy Brennan may be the ones to chase her home.

5.30pm Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Handicap Chase ( 3m 2f )

PENDRA  could be regarded as an unlucky narrow loser of this race 12 months ago and can gain compensation by going one better in Thursday’s finale. The mount of top amateur Derek O’Connor has been trained with this race in mind for some time and has some excellent festival form to his name. A 11-1 chance with Coral the Charlie Longsdon-trained gelding rates much better value than joint favourites Squouateur and Mall Dini who finished behind the selection last year.
