John Ferguson's Arabian Revolution was an impressive winner on his National Hunt debut when easing to glory at Sandown Park and the exciting four-year-old will aim to throw his name into the Triumph Hurdle shake-up this afternoon by bagging victory in Ludlow's Watch On 3 Devices Racing UK Juvenile Hurdle at 1:45pm.
He is currently a best-priced 33/1 for the Cheltenham Festival contest, but a win today should see him shorten for that event.Â However, he will have two notable rivals in the shape of Evan Williams's Cape Caster and Jonjo O'Neill's Sebastian Beach, who also look smart hurdling recruits and should figure.
Elsewhere on the card, the aformentioned Williams will saddle the top-weighted Whisky Yankee in the Watch Racing UK Anywhere Novices' Limited Handicap Chase at 2:50pm, whilst an ultra-competitive field of 17 runners will go to post for the AJA Amateur Riders' Handicap Hurdle at 3:20pm.
Plumpton will host some alternative National Hunt racing this afternoon and Lucky Prince and Zero Visibility will be major players in the Alice's Noodle Bar Handicap Hurdle at 3:30pm, with Peter Bowen's perennial runner-up Cruising Bye a leading contender in the Follow Us On Twitter At starsports_bet Handicap Chase at 4:00pm.
Wolverhampton will round off the day's racing with an all-weather fixture kicking off at 2:40pm and David Evans's Al's Memory will be one of the leading challengers in the Ladbrokes Handicap, which is a tough betting heat for punters to work out at 3:40pm.
