Racing Post Ratings: Steve Mason
Cave Top(3.45 Uttoxeter, nap)
Bolted up from a subsequent winner on his Exeter reappearance and far from disgraced when making a quick comeback second. Could still be a bit better than his current mark.
Topspeed: Dave Edwards
Eminent Poet(2.45 Uttoxeter)
Well beaten on his reappearance but Venetia Williams' mud-loving six-year-old has a fine attitude and can bounce back on his favoured ground.
Longshot: Ed Quigley
Wounded Warrior(2.35 Navan)
Wheels have come off lately but will relish ground, has an exceptional record at the venue and looks well treated off 142.
Ireland: Tony O'Hehir
The Gordon Elliott-trained six-year-old appeals in thid 2m7f handicap hurdle following an encouraging start to the season at Naas 15 days ago when he stayed on well for second in the Brown Lad Hurdle over 2m4f. He won his maiden over course and distance last season and can score under 5lb claimer Chris Meehan.>> There are no Newmarket tips today
