In the opening Kivells-sponsored Open Maiden race for 4,5&6yr olds ,Vincs Vinne stands out for the Ed Walker team after finishing eight lengths second to Dino Boy at Woodford last month under Matt Hampton. Flutiste is another to note, runs here off a low weight and could folllow up on his one and-a-half length second to Auld Sport at Cotley in March for the Ella Pickard team.

Winner of nine Points to date Kernel Victor, another from the Ed Walker team, stands out in the Hine Downing Solicitors-sponsored Members Conditions race for horses aged nine and over. With the Ex David Pipe recruit Purple’N Gold, who has scored two recent wins for the Les Jefford team, under jockey Millie Wonnacott the latest at this course in the Ladies race in April could take on Kernel Victor. The Alexandra Dunn entry How About It could also be in the mix, previous winner of two chases under rules when with Rebecca Curtis, took the Mens Open at Andersford , but a poor run at Knightwick latest could see him find this race comes too soon.

In the Jockey Club-sponsored Mares Maiden race I Prefer Diamonds (Robert Chanin) has hinted at ability when third at Andoversford. Minella Beag( Ed Walker) eight lengths fifth at Kilworthy, could have Will Biddick in the saddle helping erge her home in front and get closer to the title.

The prolific winning mare Whenharrymetsally (Keith Cumings) could be the likely favourite in the  Dunbia-sponsored Mixed Open race if turning up here, having won 15 points to date latest when 20 length winner at Cherrybrook, could see jockey Matt Hampton celebrating with connections again. Beat The Tide (Stuart Sampson) won the Confined race at Flete and could figure, with Imogens Thunder and Flywest both having had to settle for second places recently but could figure in the finish if ground conditions suit.

According To Harry and Athreeothree could battle out the finish in the Conway Bailey Transport-sponsored  Conditions race. Both are equally rated on form, According to Harry for the Bradley Partnership has been lightly raced this season, but a previous winner under rules, he could improve on his recent two and a half lengths second to Mountain Cliche at Cotley under Darren Edwards. Athreeothree previously with Jack Barber, now with Stuart Sampson, also clocked up a second at Milborne St Andrew and could find his old form under jockey Bryan Carver.

Banco De Logos (Dean Summersby) looks to be a likely bookies favorite in the Tremaine Plant Hire-sponsored Restricted race, he has shown steady improvement having previously beaten Willaldoo who won at Vauterhill last Monday. Willies Dream (Robert Hawker) won impressively at Kingston St Mary having set the pace and made all that day, could score here if repeating that run and will be another to head the market.

Finally up is the Chris and Serita Perkins-sponsored Open Maiden race which has attracted 16 entries, this could go the way of Poniel, The Galloping Bear or Minella Beag, being just a few to note who have have had the benefit of a run this season.
