12.20 – Sky Sports Racing HD Virgin 519 ‘Hands And Heels’ Handicap Hurdle
It’s a wide-open race to start proceedings, but I do like the chances of RICKETY GATE. Twice a winner in 2022, he strung together a sequence of placed efforts in the second half of last year and would have gone close in his only previous visit here without mishap. He should be extremely competitive.
Tips: Rickety Gate

PERSONAL AMBITION beat a subsequent winner on his hurdles debut, and although he struggled in a Grade 2 event in his next start, he is dropped markedly in class. Even with a 7-yard penalty, Ben Pauling’s charge is the one to beat and can resume winning ways.
Tips: Personal Ambition

CLASSIC KING shaped promisingly when successful on her hurdles debut prior to bumping into a smart prospect at Kempton when second. That form is extremely strong ahead of this contest, so she shouldn’t have much difficulty doubling her tally over timber.

RAFFLE TICKET won back-to-back handicaps at Huntingdon and Worcester last year and was only beaten a head when second at Taunton last month. He has a good chance under Harry Cobden, while CRUZ CONTROL turned in another good effort over fences when second at this course last time and should be in contention.
Tips: Raffle Ticket, Cruz Control

COULD BE TROUBLE must surely be winning soon. She has knocked on the door the last three times and should improve from her recent Aintree third. MASKED DANCER finished her race like a steam train when runner-up at Ludlow and is worth consideration.
Tips: Could Be Trouble, Masked Dancer

LYRICAL GENIUS often needs plenty of persistence, but he is dangerous when allowed a soft lead and has managed to hit the frame in his last three starts. If he gets into a smooth rhythm, he could be hard to beat. VAL DANCER won at Leicester recently and must be feared.
Tips: Lyrical Genius, Val Dancer
