Racing Post Ratings:Paul Curtis

Noble Peace(1.50 Lingfield)

Notable class dropper with a much kinder draw then when held in higher grade the last twice. Ran well enough on turf previously to give him claims at a price off his reduced mark.

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

So Hi Class(3.25 Lingfield)

Decisive Kempton winner last month he endured a troubled passage when runner-up at Chelmsfordlast time out but is improving and can get back on the winning trail.

Longshot:Vishal Junglee

Seprani(4.30 Lingfield)

This course winner finished fast late on last time out and could be dangerous back down in grade.

Ireland:Tony O'Hehir

Shush(2.35 Clonmel)

An easy winner of a bumper at Wexford on her debut in June, the daughter of Flemensfirth has strong claims judged on her first effort over hurdles at Kilbeggan in August when she ran second to Sir Benford Wales who has won again since. The step up to 2m4f should suit the Willie Mullins-trained five-year-old.
