J: Emma Smith-Chaston

T: Danny Brooke

Successful under Emma Smith-Chaston in conditional jockeys' event over C&D (soft) last time, finally opening his hurdles account and comfortably beating a subsequent scorer; rider can now use her 5lb claim, which virtually offsets a 6lb rise in the weights; big player.

Misty Mani

J: Luke Scott

T: Peter Niven

Her hat-trick came on right-handed tracks (all good ground) but she ran fine to be a 6l fourth on soft at left-handed Sedgefield; might be high in the weights now but Luke Scott returns with his 7lb claim, so that will help.

Verdict

Most of these arrive with question marks against them. LEOPOLDS ROCK is a notable exception and Philip Kirby's thriving 6yo is strongly fancied to resume winning ways after being set too much to do when third at Uttoxeter. Into The Sunset appeals as the pick of the remainder.[Peter Entwistle]
