Training centres Malt Or Mash fancied to land big prize.

West Country

Tim Mitchell

Eden Linty (1.45 Wincanton, nap)

Showed plenty of promise last season and landed a competitive hurdle at Chepstow on return. Progressing nicely and thought to have been found a decent opportunity of following up.

Pepporoni Pete (1.20 Sandown)

Plenty of talent, but in and out over hurdles. Always thought to be a chaser in the making and switch to fences expected to bring out the best in him.

Others to follow

Sandown: 12.50 Saunders Road.

Wincanton: 12.40 Massasoit, 1.10 Liberty Ben, 2.20 Ornais, 2.50 Poquelin, 3.25 Abragante, 4.00 Hell's Bay.

North Colin Russell

Corrib Lad (3.15 Kelso, nap)

Shaped well over an inadequate trip over hurdles on seasonal return last Sunday, and with this longer trip and better ground in his favour, is expected to take all the beating back over fences.

Bafana Boy (2.40 Kelso)

Howard Johnson yard in good form, and this seven-year-old, who won over fences at Carlisle last time, is fancied to take advantage of lower hurdles mark.

Ridge Wood Dani (1.30 Doncaster)

Series of decent runs since winning at Warwick in the summer, including from a poor draw last time at Chester. Better drawn this time and fancied to go well again.

Fiefdom (8.55 Wolverhampton)

On a long losing run, but was an unlucky third on the course on Sunday and is fancied to gain compensation.

Others to follow

Doncaster: 12.00 Gunfighter, 1.00 Premier Danseur, 2.35 Borderlescott, 3.10 Greek Envoy, 3.40 Inchnadamph.

Kelso: 12.35 Valentines Lady, 1.05 Glingerbank, 1.35 Royal Game, 2.10 Dreamaker, 3.50 Augustine.

Sandown: 2.25 Underwriter, 3.00 Folk Tune.

Wincanton: 2.50 Kings Quay.

Wolverhampton: 7.30 Hotham, 8.25 Tahafut.


Rodney Masters

Malt Or Mash (3.10 Doncaster, nap)

Connections have turned down at least one major offer for this fast-improving grey, who landed a hefty touch at Newmarket off a 6lb lower mark than today's rating. Likely to be suited by this course and expected to land this valuable prize.

King Harald (3.15 Kelso)

Lightly raced since his triumph at the 2005 Cheltenham Festival, but has retained sufficient ability to win this handicap off a rating of 119. Doing everything right in his work and can go well fresh.

Seven Sky (12.50 Sandown)

Disappointed behind a well-backed stable companion last time, but application of blinkers and tonguetie expected to spark a revival for a gelding who is capable of winning off his current rating.

Procas De Thaix (12.40 Wincanton)

A classy bumper performer last spring, he has looked a natural in schooling sessions over hurdles at Seven Barrows and is expected to strike first time.

Similar Fashion (4.00 Wincanton)

Pulled too hard and caught out by inexperience when favourite on her debut, but has improved considerably in her latest work and fancied to get it right this time.

Others to follow

Doncaster: 1.30 Ike Quebec.

Sandown: 1.55 Atomic Winner.

Wincanton: 1.45 La Dame Brune, 2.50 Pouvoir.

Newmarket Tony Elves

Bahiano (12.00 Doncaster, nap)

Needs things to fall right, but should get a decent pace in this event. Put in a solid effort at Newmarket last Saturday and has been upped 3lb as a result, but has one of the best apprentices in the saddle and fancied to gain an overdue return to winning ways.

Greek Renaissance (2.35 Doncaster)

Looks on the march and quickened up nicely when beating Beckermet two lengths in a Group 3 at Newmarket three weeks ago. The Saeed Bin Suroor-trained colt has to concede weight all round, but has been ticking over nicely since his last win and looks up to the task.

Heaven Knows (3.10 Doncaster)

Any rain would help his cause, but the Halling colt showed he was back when beating Ajhar over 1m2f at Newbury a fortnight ago and the return to 1m4f should also be in his favour. William Haggas took the first big handicap of the season, the Lincoln, with Very Wise and he could take the final one with this Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned colt.

Others to follow

Doncaster: 12.30 Barnaby Rudge, 1.00 Wise Hawk, 2.05 Gull Wing, 3.40 Backbord.

Wolverhampton: 7.00 Showtime Ice, 7.30 Expensive Art, 7.55 Magical Fantasy, 8.25 Our Kes, 8.55 Fusili, 9.20 Demisemiquaver.
