Early Bird – 22nd March

3:05 Cork – Viking Hoard

70 plus rated flat horse for Harry Dunlop who wouldn’t have been enjoying the heavy conditions it has faced in four hurdle starts to date. That has meant an extremely low handicap mark in comparison and with conditions drying up then clearly more is expected with the weight of money for it tonight.

1.5pt win Viking Hoard @ 5/1 Betfair and Paddy Power

6:00 Wolverhampton – Scribner Creek

Twice a course and distance winner who is 2lb well in on its last run which was at Southwell. In really good form and seems to be plenty of money around which is significant from the Ivan Furtado yard. From the plum stall in 1 it should take some beating.

2pt win Scribner Creek @ 3/1 Bet365, Ladbrokes and BetVictor
