Race 1 Uttoxeter 12:08 Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) 16f

365365194 Moveit Like Minnie
Won a couple of bumpers in the summer. Runner-up in novice/maiden hurdles this winter and rates a likely improver now making a quick switch to handicaps.
11-10Finn LambertNigel locked2/11.75/113
365365321 Auditoria
Fair maiden on the Flat and a similar standard over hurdles, coming good in 2m Catterick novice over Christmas. Runner-up in handicap off this mark prior to that. Should go well.
12-0Gearoid HarneyOlly Murphylocked3/14/133
365365127 Good Impression
Modest Flat winner who came good over hurdles in 2m Fakenham handicap 12 days ago. Effectively 6 lb higher now (2 lb out of handicap) but he should have a say if in similar form.
10-0Ellis CollierDai Burchelllocked5/14.5/110
365365432 Subway Surf
Still to add to her two bumper wins but she did run creditably for second in a C&D handicap last month, albeit it was rather laboured.
11-13Nathan BrennanKim Baileylocked5.5/17/127
365365298 Click And Collect
Yet to get his head in front but has run well when reaching the frame on 3 of his 4 starts this winter, the latest when runner-up over C&D on New Year's Eve. 3 lb out of handicap on this occasion.
10-0Lewis StonesJennie Candlishlocked8/110/125
365365155 Begin The Luck
Dual Southwell scorer in the spring but he comes here on back of a couple of modest efforts in recent weeks. Remains 6 lb above last winning mark.
11-10Philip ArmsonCaroline Baileylocked10/111/110
365365303 Jaisalmer
Scored at Warwick in April but hasn't fired since, so he might struggle to make an impact despite his tumbling mark. Cheekpieces go on for just a second time.
11-12Alfie JordanMark Bradstocklocked20/114/130
365365876 Ladi Chala
Modest maiden on Flat in France and has run to only a similar level in maiden/novice hurdles in Britain. Had wind surgery ahead of handicap debut. Hard to make a case for.
11-1Jay TidballFiona Kehoelocked33/140/121
There are 8 runners in this race.

Race 2 Uttoxeter 12:38 Novices/Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) 16f

365365312 Arizona Cardinal
Irish point winner who made a very promising start over hurdles in well-run maiden at Warwick (21f) under this rider last month. Possibly amiss when pulled up 3 weeks later but can get back on track.
11-6Ciaran GethingsStuart Edmundslocked2.25/13/133
36536573 Charlie's Glance
Well-related Newbury bumper winner who has made a promising start over hurdles, third in a Taunton novice (19f, good to soft, 2/1) last week. Should be in the mix.
11-6James MartinAndrew J Martinlocked3/10.91/170
3653654554 Five Bar Brian
Fairyhouse bumper winner for Willie Mullins in January 2020 and looked set to make a winning debut over hurdles/for this yard before tying up at Ayr 15 months ago. Tongue tied for reappearance.
11-6Henry BrookeOliver Greenalllocked4/111/1175
365365901 Abegudsam
€1,500 3-y-o, £58,000 4-y-o: first foal: dam unraced half-sister to fairly useful hurdler/useful chaser (stayed 4m) Mister Marker. Off mark in Irish points at second attempt (Oct 31).
11-6Sean BowenOlly Murphylocked5/15/10
3653653105 Grey Skies
Improved on debut effort when seventh in maiden hurdle at Cork (20f) 10 months ago. Successful between the flags recently and looks an interesting recruit for Donald McCain. Market check advised.
11-6Theo GillardDonald McCainlocked10/112/120
365365748 Rio Silva
Blue Bresil filly. Dam unraced half-sister to smart hurdler/top-class chaser (stayed 25f) Valseur Lido. Looked one for later on when fourth in a Fakenham bumper on her debut in November.
10-13David EnglandOlly Murphylocked12/128/1133
365365506 Inflagrante
Getaway gelding who was strong in the betting but didn't offer much immediate hope when tailed off in a Bangor bumper last month. Tough to fancy on hurdles bow.
11-6Gavin SheehanKim Baileylocked18/133/183
365365589 Great Commission
Close third in Beverley novice on second start on the Flat. Hurdles debut effort at Sedgefield (16.8f) wasn't devoid of promise but below that level for new yard since. Cheekpieces applied.
10-7Page FullerJo Davislocked80/1125/156
3653652010 Snap Chap
Fair maiden at best on Flat but has been let down by attitude, taking little interest on yard debut recently. Easy to look elsewhere on his hurdles bow.
10-7Fergus GregoryJake Thomas locked100/1200/1100
3653651997 Unique Company
Poor on Flat and over hurdles (0-20 overall) and hasn't shown much in this sphere. Returns from 6 months off and easy to look elsewhere.
11-6Mr Philip ThomasMark Weathererlocked125/1150/120
There are 10 runners in this race.

Race 3 Uttoxeter 13:13 Novices/Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) 16f

365365233 Drenagh
Placed in a pair of bumpers in early 2020 and has found only one too good both starts over hurdles, latterly at Chepstow (2m). Sets the standard in this sphere.
11-6Sean BowenAlastair Ralphlocked1.75/10.91/148
365365432 Benign Dictator
Well-bred sort who improved to land a C&D bumper on first start for this yard in November. Far from disgraced in a listed event at Ascot subsequently and should make his mark over hurdles.
11-6Fergus GregoryOlly Murphylocked1.88/13/160
365365396 Russian Virtue
Fairly useful maiden on Flat, stays 1¼m. Below form last 3 starts in that sphere but made a decent enough start over hurdles after 3 months off when second at Pumpton last month. Likely to improve.
11-6Tabitha WorsleyClare Hobsonlocked7.5/112/160
36536508 Western Baron
€30,000 3-y-o, Westerner gelding. Brother to 2 winners, including useful hurdler/fairly useful chaser Anything Will Do, and half-brother to useful hurdler/chaser Stand Up And Fight.
11-6Tom O'BrienColin Tizzardlocked7.5/15/133
365365157 Sullivan's Brow
Winning pointer who failed to see things out on his sole outing in bumpers and it was a similar story sent hurdling upped in trip at Sedgefield 15 days ago.
11-6Theo GillardDonald McCainlocked12/116/133
365365795 Nine Nine Nine
All the rage in the market but needed experience in sole bumper. Showed some ability behind a useful one on Fakenham hurdle bow but not so good at Taunton. Has since left Nigel Twiston-Davies.
11-6William KennedySarah-Jayne Davieslocked16/125/156
36536501 Barnie Beetle
Firebreak gelding out of a 2m hurdle winner who stayed 25f (also an 11.5f winner on Flat). Yard's newcomers usually come on for a run and probably best watched on this occasion.
11-6Henry BrookeOliver Greenalllocked22/150/1127
365365219 Mothill
Fairly useful Flat winner in France (left Jean-Claude Rouget 18,000 gns in September, then gelded). Well held on Wincanton hurdle/stable debut 3 weeks ago but ought to do better in time.
10-7Harry ReedNeil Mulhollandlocked33/128/115
365365154 Ez Tiger
No great shakes in bumpers and showed only a bit before departing late on Huntingdon hurdling debut.
11-6Ciaran GethingsAlex Haleslocked33/140/121
There are 9 runners in this race.

Race 4 Uttoxeter 13:48 Handicap Chase (Class 4) 20f

365365282 Keep Rolling
Very much back to form when runner-up in a C&D handicap in December, so rather disappointing he couldn't match that at Exeter (19.2f, heavy) next time. One to consider with bounce back expected.
11-12Tom O'BrienPhilip Hobbslocked2.75/13/19
365365343 Poldark Cross
Lightly-raced maiden hurdler. All the better for chase debut when runner-up at Sedgefield (19.3f) on Boxing Day, beaten only by a course specialist. Possible he can do better again in this sphere.
11-9Jack QuinlanHarry Whittingtonlocked3.33/12/140
365365511 Getaway Luv
Fair hurdles winner who was strictly below that level when midfield in 11-runner novices' handicap chase at Warwick (2m) last month. Still, he may come on for that now so not discounted.
11-12Sean BowenOlly Murphylocked4/15.5/138
365365407 Raecius Felix
Been some time since he scored but wasted no time getting back to form when third at Musselburgh last month. Dropped 3 lb for that effort so he merits consideration sporting first-time cheekpieces.
10-12Nathan MoscropRebecca Menzieslocked4.5/16/133
36536546 Star Of Rory
Multiple hurdles winner but yet to seriously threaten in handful of starts over fences, struggling when unseating at Leicester (22.7f) 4 days ago. Needs to step up to figure.
11-3Lee EdwardsJohn Groucottlocked8/15.5/131
365365485 The Composeur
Readily opened his account over fences at Southwell in June but failed to complete on 3 of his 4 starts since, running no sort of race when pulled up at Carlisle last month.
11-7Alain CawleyJonjo O'Neilllocked11/114/127
3653652714 Mystical Clouds
Tricky sort who ended time with Alan King with success at Kempton (20.5f) early 2020. Didn't go on from yard debut effort last term though and break needs to have perked him up.
11-8Fergus GregoryJohn Butlerlocked16/140/1150
There are 7 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 5 Uttoxeter 14:22 Handicap Hurdle (Class 2) 20f

365365427 Mackelduff
Progressive hurdler who readily defied a 6 lb lower mark on return/handicap debut at Aintree (20f) in October. Good third at Cheltenham and Haydock next 2 starts and remains unexposed.
11-1Fergus GregoryOlly Murphylocked2.75/12.5/19
365365245 Wicked West
Improved model for new stable, winning maiden/novice events last year. Poor start in handicaps but bounced back to his best when placed last 2 starts. Step up in trip should suit and shortlisted.
11-2Charlie HammondDr Richard Newlandlocked4.5/13.33/126
365365288 Here Comes Henry
Catching the eye in maiden/novice hurdles and duly improved when making a winning handicap bow at Fakenham on New Year's Day. More to come.
10-5Ciaran GethingsStuart Edmundslocked4.5/15.5/122
36536593 Stormy Flight
Fairly useful hurdler who wasn't disgraced on chase bow at Chepstow. Well backed back over hurdles when brought down at the first at Wincanton 9 days ago. C&D winner off 2 lb lower in April.
11-4Rex DingleJeremy Scottlocked4.5/14.5/10
365365212 Zambezi Fix
Fairly useful ex-Irish hurdler who bettered that form over fences last term. Good second back over hurdles this season, including at Sandown 3 weeks ago, faring best of those held up. Respected.
11-9Ben JonesBernard Llewellynlocked7.5/18/17
365365141 Cabot Cliffs
Successful 3 times last term and has posted 2 solid efforts to make the frame in 2m handicaps at Chepstow/Ascot this winter. Beaten by more than lack of stamina upped in trip at Kempton 2 weeks ago.
11-12Bridget AndrewsDan Skeltonlocked10/19/110
365365164 Hart Of Steel
Added to his tally in determined style at Carlisle (20f) in October and took another step forward when making all at Bangor 16 days ago. Player.
11-3Theo GillardDonald McCainlocked10/17/130
3653651126 French Crusader
Useful hurdler in his prime but is clearly hard to train and has offered little this season back from a long absence. First run for yard after leaving Nicky Henderson.
11-2Tom O'BrienToby Laweslocked25/116/136
3653651189 Glan Y Gors
On a lengthy losing run over hurdles/Flat and not easy to make a case for from just out of the weights.
10-0Mr Philip ThomasMark Weathererlocked66/1100/152
There are 9 runners in this race.

Race 6 Uttoxeter 14:57 Handicap Chase (Class 3) 22f

365365342 Precious Eleanor
Fair hurdler who has taken well to fences, again finding just one too good at Wincanton last time. Another bold showing is on the cards.
11-2Tom O'BrienHenry Dalylocked3/12.75/18
365365213 Burrows Diamond
Career best when winning 4-runner handicap chase at Newcastle 3 weeks ago, value for more having been eased down. That form has been boosted by the runner-up since, so should go well again.
11-1Henry BrookeSue Smithlocked3.5/16/171
365365511 Emmas Joy
Point/Grade 2 hurdles winner who has shown an aptitude for this game in mares' listed events since returning from a 20-month absence. Mark for this handicap debut is appealing and she merits respect.
11-8Bridget AndrewsDan Skeltonlocked4/13.5/113
365365296 Graces Order
Just fair form over hurdles but, following a breathing operation, she immediately upped her game when runner-up at this course on chasing debut a month ago. More to come, so looks an obvious player.
10-8Fergus GregoryOlly Murphylocked4.5/16/133
365365264 Found On
Dual winner over hurdles who showed some aptitude for chasing when mid-field in a 13-runner handicap at Southwell 26 days ago. Needs to build on that.
11-1Sean BowenMartin Keighleylocked6.5/13.33/149
365365335 Coded Message
Fairly useful hurdler/chaser who has posted a couple of respectable efforts over hurdles lately. Potentially well treated on old form, so dangerous if she gets into a rhythm at the head of affairs.
10-12Mr Charlie CaseBen Caselocked12/18.5/129
There are 6 runners in this race.

Race 7 Uttoxeter 15:33 Handicap Chase (Class 4) 26f

365365185 Bretney
Found plenty for pressure when shedding maiden tag over 3m here in December and matched that form when second at Doncaster (26f) subsequently. Should give another good account.
10-5Tom O'BrienHenry Dalylocked2.25/12.5/111
365365292 Docpickedme
Fairly useful 20f winner over hurdles who got back on the up at fourth attempt over fences here (20f) in December, responding well. Type to do better still now stamina is tested further again.
11-12Jack QuinlanHarry Whittingtonlocked2.75/13/19
365365294 Bubbles Of Gold
Winning Irish pointer who got off the mark over hurdles at Warwick back in early-2019. Never threatened on back of 33 months off here (20f) in December and market may prove best guide now chasing.
11-7Sean BowenOlly Murphylocked4/110/1150
365365571 Young Offender
Hurdles winner who impressed when making a successful switch to chasing at Chepstow (26f) in October, forging clear. Extended 30f may have stretched him at Exeter and he's worth another chance.
12-1Theo GillardStuart Edmundslocked4.5/12.25/150
365365423 Mr Harp
Fairly useful hurdler who was strictly below his best when midfield in 12-runner Haydock handicap recently, rallying gradually. Goes chasing now and the assessor has relinquished his grip.
11-11Alain CawleyThomas Gallagherlocked6/15/117
There are 5 runners in this race.

297 Ali Star Bert
11-2NON-RUNNERShaun Harrislocked0
36536545614 The Girl That Sang
Modest maiden hurdler for Sean Conway. Off 15 months but she merits serious consideration for her new yard off a reduced mark with this step up in trip a plus too.
10-11Liam HarrisonFergal O'Brienlocked4/15.5/138
365365461 Kings Creek
Cheekpieces on when good fourth of 17 in handicap hurdle at Catterick (19.3f) 46 days ago. Not taken lightly off an unchanged mark with the headgear retained.
11-12Henry BrookeMark Walfordlocked6/122/1267
365365459 Hipop Des Ongrais
125/1, eighth of 13 in 2m novice hurdle at Newbury 45 days ago. Now goes handicapping up in trip, and he's open to improvement.
11-0James BestRobert Walfordlocked6.5/13.5/146
3653655315 Highate Hill
Off 17 months since respectable sixth in handicap hurdle at Market Rasen (23.1f). Hood back on for his comeback run and he's no forlorn hope.
11-4Sean BowenOlly Murphylocked8/114/175
3653652610 Classic Tune
C&D winner who posted good third of 14 in handicap at Southwell (20.4f) 26 days ago. Veteran can make his presence felt once more.
10-13Bridget AndrewsClaire Dysonlocked8.5/112/141
3653652911 Doireann
Lightly-raced maiden. 33/1, good second of 14 in handicap hurdle at Warwick (19f) 29 days ago, so she needs considering off an unchanged mark.
10-13Ciaran GethingsStuart Edmundslocked9/15.5/139
3653652916 R Bernard
Lightly-raced maiden. 18/1, best run when fourth of 14 on his handicap bow at Warwick (19f) 29 days ago. Shortlisted eased 2 lb here.
10-8Alan JohnsSam Allwoodlocked12/19/125
3653652612 Cronk Y Knox
Still a maiden, but he posted good fourth of 14 in handicap hurdle at Southwell (20.4f) 26 days ago. In the mix.
10-13Katie O'FarrellAlex Haleslocked12/110/117
365365692 Earl Of Wisdom
Fair maiden but below par both runs this November. Since had wind op and tongue strap on now with something to prove.
11-9Tom O'BrienColin Tizzardlocked14/114/10
365365214 Secret Trix
Has hinted at promise over hurdles, never-dangerous tenth of 12 in novice at Wincanton (15.2f) 21 days ago. Up in trip for his handicap bow and can't be ruled out for good yard.
11-7David EnglandOlly Murphylocked18/140/1122
365365236 Akkapenko
C&D winner in November but only eighth of 11 in handicap hurdle at Chepstow (19.4f) 23 days ago. Needs to get back on track.
11-2Ben JonesDai Burchelllocked18/110/144
3653659315 Priory Wood
Well held all three runs over hurdles, ninth in novice at Stratford (16.3f) 93 days ago. Lot more is required on his first go in handicaps.
10-8Mr Jamie BraceJonjo O'Neilllocked20/125/125
3653657213 Cigarettesnalcohol
Has offered little all three runs over hurdles, last of 5 in novice at Market Rasen (18.6f) 72 days ago. Faces an uphill task on his handicap debut.
10-12Fergus GregoryRichard Spencerlocked25/128/112
365365343 Hello Sunshine
C&D winner but underwent breathing op before being pulled up in handicap at Huntingdon (20.7f) 34 days ago. Not easy to make a case for.
11-8Rex DinglePaul Webberlocked28/111/161
3653652288 Mackie Dee
7/1, respectable fourth in handicap chase at Stratford (22.6f) 7 months ago. Needs to hit the ground running switched to hurdles for his seasonal return.
