William Hill Bookmakers ‘National Hunt’ Auction Maiden Hurdle

Grumpy Mcgrumpface (1pt win only 9/1) NB

A forgetable return to action last time out when last of 8 but should fair better now sent over obstacles. Has some pretty pleasing bumper form on offer, most noteably a 2nd at Ayr on just his second start. On the evidence of that race would be in with a shout here for connections who like a winner in these parts. Yard not yet firing on all cyliders but have a decent record here with a 22% strike and LSP of +14 so in the main are profitable to follow.

Jumping For Joy On Racing Tv Novices’ Handicap Hurdle

Tico Times (0.5pt EW 28/1 4 places Various) IWAC

Modest bumper form before putting in a decent run on debut over hurdles at Sligo for previous yard. Has done little on two starts for current yard in slightly better company and goes handicapping here from what now looks to be a workable mark. Ground a slight worry but encouraging that C O Farrell has decided to stick with him following a lengthy absence.

Persimmon Homes Scottish Borders National Handicap Chase

Duc De Grissay (1pt win only 9/2) NAP

Yard have won this race on 4 of the last 5 runnings and come here with a strong hand once more. Last years winner Bigirononhiship will go again but carries an extra 10lb this year which will make it much touger and the runner up Just Your Type will no doubt run his race here again. Neither of last years reopposing runners have much to hide from the handicapper unlike the selection who is still very unexposed over the bigger fences and also over the marathon trip. Has won over 3m here in testing conditions and ran very well over 3m 5f at Sedgefield on return. Would have needed that run and comes here 1lb lighter so big chance today.
