ROCK HOUSE emerged as a promising talent after securing a commendable third place in the Grade 2 Persian War at Chepstow last October, establishing him as the one to beat in this event. His performance didn’t quite reflect his potential when he was extended to 2m5f in his most recent race. However, with the introduction of cheekpieces and a reduction in distance, this six-year-old trained by Dan Skelton is poised for redemption. Sea Grey, a victor at Catterick, has the potential for further improvement over hurdles and presents a significant challenge. Additionally, Magical Hill, having shown potential in bumper races, is definitely worth considering for a wager as he makes his hurdling debut.

Coolmore N.H. Sires Pyledriver Handicap Chase

TAKE ALL - 9/1

Given that many in this field have recently been competing over longer distances, the outcome could largely hinge on who adapts best to the shorter trip. TAKE ALL, known for his reliable jumping and tendency to either lead or stay near the front, benefits from Shane Fenelon's 7lb allowance. This adjustment allows the nine-year-old, trained by Shark Hanlon, to compete at a weight 6lb lower than his winning mark at Wexford last July. Donacheady Gale draws attention in only his third race back after a prolonged break. This gelding, trained by John Ryan, has had few races and thus has potential for further progress in fence competitions. Marelly, a winner in hurdles races but yet to make a mark in chases since changing trainers, could prove competitively handicapped if he maintains his former capabilities.

The 6lb increase in the handicap appears to be quite generous for LE BOULEVARDIER, who comfortably won over 3 miles at Ludlow in November, suggesting he had more to offer. The eight-year-old is expected to welcome the addition of an extra furlong, making him a top pick for a successful debut under Gary Moore's guidance. Always Busy, having been narrowly beaten by a rapidly improving competitor at Taunton last month, seems poised to be the principal challenger. Meanwhile, Flemen's Tipple is likely to show improved competitiveness returning to hurdles.

The merit of LARGY POET's latest two wins may be questioned by some, yet his upward trajectory is undeniable, and he is likely to demonstrate superior strength, particularly if his point-to-point second place to the later Champion Bumper victor Jasmin De Vaux is taken as a genuine indicator of his capability. Blue Bikini, despite her lack of consistent performances, boasts two victories in her last four races, positioning her as a strong contender from her high-spirited stable. Among the rest, Chris Cool stands out as the most attractive option.

IL VA DE SOI - 10/3

IL VA DE SOI showed significantly more energy and enthusiasm in his first race wearing cheekpieces, coming in second to a rapidly improving competitor in a closely contested event at Newbury last month. Under the guidance of Harry Derham, the gelding finished a remarkable 24 lengths clear of the next closest competitor. With the advantage of Alice Stevens' 5lb allowance now in play, the six-year-old is effectively competing with a 3lb advantage. Despite missing out on a trio of consecutive wins at Uttoxeter in March, One Eye On Vegas still put in a commendable performance to finish third and appears to be the primary challenger, with Florencethemachine also in the mix.

CELTIC DINO establishes the benchmark following his win at Ascot in November and his impressive third-place finish in a Listed race at the same venue just before Christmas. Even with the challenge of conceding 7lb or more to his rivals, this race looks to be a promising chance for the five-year-old ahead of his transition to hurdling next season. The Bluesman, who secured a place in a Kempton bumper on his first outing under official rules, showed signs that a more demanding endurance challenge would suit him well. Woodland Park and Shade Of Winter are also contenders to watch in this lineup.
