Cridersis on Clondaw Cian | Tipped at 7/2
First noted him when he came second in a bumper to Copper Kay at Newton Abbot, who has since won at Cheltenham. I then put him up to beat the well fancied William H Bonny at Fontwell in a good bumper and he slugged through the mud to win that. After that he romped home on his hurdles debut at the same venue. He loves soft ground and it looks like the hurdles track at Sandown will turn up soft today. Francis of Assisi drops down into this race and is a good horse, but not likely to enjoy the ground. The same could be said for Roadie Joe, although Label Des Obeaux might be the big threat given the conditions

Alan King is thriving right now picking up some of the big prizes. This horse has a string of near misses next to its name but that doesn't put me off. Last time out finished a 3/4 length second at Ascot in a novice Hurdle to the talented American for Harry Fry. Those two pulled miles clear and I think that form with the winner might be quite strong. This looks a good opportunity to notch up a win under Wayne Hutchinson to continue the fine form for the Barbary Castle stable.

going for a 5 timer this horse. trainer could land this for a treble on the day. Evan Williams is good trainer finally getting abit of luck in the decent races
