After landing back to back winners we are going in search of a hat-trick this weekend and we have picked out an 8/1 shot at Ascot on Friday that looks to have a superb chance.

In the Class 3 2m1/2f Limited Handicap Chase we believe that the top weighted Sir Valentine for Nigel Twiston-Davies is over priced in this current betting market.

At 8/1 this seven year old is superb each way value with other current runners left in the declarations not sure to run and our horse almost certain to be heading the race already having a jockey booking.

Nigel Twiston-Davies has a superb record in the race having won it before and with the way this gelding has started the season you could not underestimate his chances.

Sir Valentine having been a smart horse over hurdles has made a great transition to fences making his seasonal debut at Cheltenham and finishing second in behind Fusil Raffles, who has since gone on to frank the form.

Next time out the gelding went to Wetherby and again finished second in a Novices' Chase behind Malystic, but now sent handicapping could finally get off the mark.
