Race 1 Bangor 11-25 Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) 20f

365365221 Rubytwo
Wasn't winning out of turn when opening hurdles account in a Newcastle mares' maiden (20.3f) in November. Below par since, but down in class and the weights here, so she's worth considering.
11-12Brian Hughes Nicky Richardslocked5/10
365365245 Badness Backfires
Fair ex-Irish maiden for Denise Foster and shaped encouragingly starting out for new yard following a 5-month break at Hereford (19.7f, good). 1 lb lower now and he needs a second look.
11-8Lorcan WilliamsHenry Oliverlocked7/10
3653651410 Ocean Voyage
Fair winning hurdler in Ireland and while she hasn't fired in 6 starts for her new yard, this represents a drop in class and she has slipped to a dangerous mark.
11-4Charlie ToddIan Williamslocked9/10
3653652513 Say The Word
Some decent efforts to his name, including when sixth of 16 in a 3m Taunton handicap last time. However, record over hurdles stands at 0-11 and there's an air of vulnerability about him.
10-12Ciaran GethingsTom Georgelocked10/10
365365198 Dan Gun
Justified strong market support when making a winning start for this yard at Stratford (22f, good) recently. 9 lb rise may not be enough to prevent him from striking again.
11-4Harry SkeltonDan Skeltonlocked11/100
365365314 Guildhall
Fair 7f Flat winner and has translated most of that ability to hurdles, albeit he misfired on debut for new yard at Huntingdon last time and is now 0-7 in this sphere.
11-9Tom O'BrienSam Allwoodlocked12/10
365365253 Lady Sally
Point winner who stepped up plenty on her reappearance run when third at Leicester in November. Completely bombed both starts since, though, and she has a point to prove now.
11-9Jonathan BurkeAlastair Ralphlocked16/10
365365227 Nefyn Point
Sole hurdling win came in 2019 and arrives here on the back of a string of inauspicious displays. Claims if able to bounce back, but it's clearly a big 'if'.
11-6Theo GillardDonald McCainlocked16/10
365365142 Brother Pat
Encouraging third in a Stratford novice in October, but he has offered little switched to handicaps the last twice and hopes now pinned on first-time cheekpieces.
11-12Peter KavanaghDonald McCainlocked20/10
365365316 Near Kettering
Fit from a Flat win and opened account over hurdles at Sedgefield last August. It's been downhill all the way since, though, and he needs to bounce back in a major way.
11-8Jonathan EnglandSam Englandlocked20/10
36536515412 Watchman
Appeared to take a step forward when fourth on handicap debut in this sphere at Uttoxeter in October. However, failed to match that form back there the following month and he's been absent since.
11-0Jason DixonNikki Evanslocked25/10
365365419 Staithes
Point winner who didn't cut much ice in a bumper/novice hurdle for Nicky Henderson and has failed to complete switched to fences the last twice.
11-4Tabitha WorsleyLaura Horsfalllocked50/10
3653652314 Jalingo
Continues to fall in the weights, but for good reason and there were very few positives to glean from his effort at Chepstow last month.
10-10David NoonanAli Strongelocked50/10
There are 13 runners in this race.

Race 2 Bangor 11-55 Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) 20f

365365175 Shady Character
Had offered some encouragement this winter prior to getting off the mark in a conditional jockey's handicap hurdle at Southwell (20.4f) last month. Fancied to be in the mix again with a repeat.
11-8Henry BrookeOliver Greenalllocked7/10
365365182 Kitty Hall
Better with each start in mares' novice hurdles so shade disappointing she failed to feature on handicap debut at Newcastle (2m) last month. Still, it's early days and fitting of blinkers may help.
11-11Brian Hughes Nicky Richardslocked8/10
3653651411 Ballyfarsoon
Given a real chance by the handicapper and turned in best effort of the season when only edged out late on at Carlisle (19.3f) 2 weeks ago. 4 lb higher now but a repeat should see him thereabouts.
11-2Alison JohnsonPeter Winkslocked9/10
36536551 Rukwa
Flat winner in December and continued good work over timber this spring, resuming winning ways in a conditional jockeys' event at Huntingdon (20.6f) 5 days ago. Another big run anticipated.
11-12Tom MidgleySam Englandlocked11/80
365365233 Mabela
Dual hurdles who has fallen in the weights and, having travelled well, disappointingly found little when well held fifth in a mares' handicap at Sedgefield (19.8f) recently. Eased further 3 lb now.
11-9Harry SkeltonDan Skeltonlocked15/20
365365146 Russian Service
Gained second win at Taunton (19f, heavy) in January and more recent efforts probably best overlooked, making mistakes/lost a shoe at Carlisle (17f) earlier this month. Back on last winning mark.
11-7Liam HarrisonSamuel Drinkwaterlocked20/10
3653652410 Richardson
Found some improvement when off the mark in 2½m Uttoxeter handicap (heavy) in December but hasn't been in anything like the same form either start since, well beaten sixth at Hereford (21.7f) in March
11-2Shane QuinlanJohn Groucottlocked20/10
365365274 Tawseef
Fairly useful hurdler at his best but at the veteran stage now and he needs to show the benefit of last month's Carlisle effort over 17f if he's to feature here.
11-8Abbie McCainDonald McCainlocked25/10
365365549 Ofcourseiwill
Badly out of sorts last season and similar story on return here (16.6f) back in July. Unseated at Kelso the following month and pulled up back from 5 months off at Southwell (15.8f) in February.
11-4Theo GillardDonald McCainlocked40/10
365365337 Tommie Beau
Fair form when fifth in only bumper. Below that level in handful of starts over hurdles though, never a threat on handicap debut at Plumpton (15.9f) in March. Needs to step up.
11-5Kevin JonesSeamus Mullinslocked50/10
