PADDY DE POLE (2.43 Fontwell, nap)

Paul Nicholls’ hurdler has been in fine form and brought up a hat-trick of wins by no less than 12 lengths at Hereford last time out. The handicapper was watching and has hiked the six-year-old 9lb – but that won’t put the brakes on. He wasn’t stopping over 2m4f last time so the longer trip shouldn’t be an issue and he can keep his winning run going.

RINNOVATI (2.00 Yarmouth, nb)

She has been knocking on the door since going handicapping with two seconds and a third. She showed a liking for this trip with some cut in the ground when a close third at Leicester two runs ago. That form was franked with another strong performance at Lingfield latest when she hit the runner-up spot. The handicapper has left her mark alone and she can strike under Hollie Doyle.

PYFFO (2.13 Fontwell, treble)

He kept his fine run of form going with a second at Hereford last time. He has plenty of staying power for this trip and looks on a fair handicap mark.

WANNABE BRAVE (8.45 Kempton, Lucky 15)

He brought up a winning hat-trick with plenty left in the tank at Lingfield latest. A 4lb rise in the weights won’t be enough to stop him with the top-class Oisin Murphy staying in the saddle.
