ASCOT

1.40: Charlie Mann makes no secret of his regard for his recent Cheltenham winner Hoh Invader, the likely favourite today. BLUEDONIX started favourite but was beaten into third that day, but with conditions and a weight pull in his favour can turn the tables.

ooo

2.15: Deano's Beano is the chosen one from eight entries Martin Pipe originally had in this race. He reportedly feels the six-year-old is top class, and he would need to be to beat the likes of last year's Cheltenham winner Princeful and PADDY'S RETURN, runaway winner of this race last year.

ooo

2.50: TAMARINDO justified his tall reputation with a brilliant win over a field of classy stayers at Cheltenham, and can justify a 9lb rise in the weights this afternoon. Unguided Missile finished ten lengths in arrears that day back in third place. He has a 10lb pull in the weights on a track where he has a great record.

UTTOXETER

2.10: SURSUM CORDA can only find this easier after having to concede 11lb to the talented four-year-old Flagship Uberalles at Exeter. He should get a fast pace from chasing newcomer Nipper Reed so has chances of outstaying Distant Echo and Hoh Express.

ooo

2.40: GIGI BEACH may not have too much finishing pace but he does gallop and has over a stone less to carry after the latest defeat at Newton Abbot. Lord Khalice has an interesting look with only 10st and rates the best each-way investment.

ooo

3.10: COUNTRYMAN did enough on his chasing debut behind Distant Echo at Chepstow to suggest he will take some beating off 10st 9lb in this weak handicap.

ooo

3.40: TAUFAN BOY failed narrowly against the back-to-form Bramblehill Duke at Newbury. That was a creditable effort and yesterday's rain has increased his chance.
