Our Reward was an authoritative winner over hurdles at Fakenham last time and is now switching to fences to try and take advantage of a much lower mark in this sphere. However, things very much went his way at the Norfolk venue, with a couple of his rivals running no sort of race, and he might not want too much rain as his best form has been on good ground or faster.

The same can be said of his main market rival, Whin Park, although Ben Pauling’s runner is respected nonetheless having justified favouritism in good style at Ludlow last time under the champion jockey, who is back on board. Given he showed a tendency to jump left at the Shropshire venue, he should appreciate going that way round this afternoon and a 5lb rise still leaves him on a workable mark.

However, I can’t ignore the claims of the Katy Price-trained bottom weight CLONDAW RIGGER, whose chances would be greatly enhanced by rain as he loves to get his toe in. A wide margin winner at Hereford in January (soft), he ran some solid races in defeat either side of that and was probably feeling a hard at Uttoxeter eight days previously when disappointing on his final outing of last term.

Returning from a 186-day back at Uttoxeter last month, he ran as if the outing was needed, albeit he still managed to run a respectable third of the 13 runners, and is entitled to come on plenty for that. Still only six and now in his second season of chasing, he should be capable of doubling his chase tally off his current mark of 95 and this looks a good opportunity.
