Q1 What's the best bet at Huntingdon? Dyliev (3.35) scored with plenty in hand here last time and can defy a 3lb penalty for Caroline Bailey.
Trull La La (2.30). Nicky Henderson has run 32 in maiden hurdles at track over the past eight years and recorded 16 wins.
I'm going to take a chance on Auenwirbel in the 4.40. Was a close second at Lingfield in January and has the assistance of Sam Twiston-Davies in the plate today.
Shrewdie Phillip Kirby's Little Bruce (4.05) should relish today's searching test of stamina.
That's a huge pointer.
Q2 Do you like anything at Sedgefield? Sue Smith has hit top gear and she can enjoy a double with Dartford Warbler (2.50) and The Paddy Pie (3.55).
Arthur Mac (2.20) ought be winning opener for super-shrewd handler Henry Oliver with outstanding 7lb claimer Jason Dixon taking the Total Assets' biggest asset seems to be her staying power and she can trouble the principles in the 2.50. And it'll be no surprise if The Paddy Pie completes a hat-trick for Sue Smith in the 3.55.
Tough Very Extravagant (4.25) can bag a deserved success in a gruelling handicap hurdle.
Q3 Any decent tips at Leopardstown? The Church Gate (4.50) won't be a fancy price but should win to top up our coffers for Cheltenham.
The Red Menace (2.40) has not hit the heights so far over the sticks but his last two runs have shown improvement and this race looks very winnable.
Henry de Bromhead can warm up for the Festival when Ming Dynasty (3.10) stays on the upgrade in the two-miler. Progressive Monatomic (4.15) looks the best of Gordon Elliott's team in the feature chase.
