8/1 8/1

Handicap: No

Going:

LAD OF LUCK made a big impression when winning a Chepstow bumper by 11 lengths on his racecourse debut last February, and if able to translate that form over hurdles, he will prove difficult to beat. Arian has struck the crossbar on her last couple of starts, including a half-length second behind recent winner Woolstone One, and she is likely to be in the shake-up again, while First Du Charmil and Zoltan Varga are others to keep an eye on.

Kirei on Lad Of Luck | Tipped at 4/1
This half-brother to the very smart Let's Dance (Cheltenham festival winner etc) has been handed what could be a difficult target for his first start over hurdles (hacked up on bumper debut but off since February), but his main opponents while still unexposed do have questions to answer. Turtle Wars was poor last time out, while Maire Banrigh cost a staggering £320,000 and failed to start to repay that when evens on debut. Arian could be open to be most improvement but provided Lad of Luck can jump as remotely as well as his half-sister then under the claiming son of the trainer (won very nicely for me today on The New Pharaoh) he should be able to take this.
