Trainer To Follow - Dan Skelton

Dan Skelton sends a strong team to Kelso on Saturday starting in the opener with Sholokjack looking to make it back to back wins in Handicap Chases.

The Skelton's then field L'Eau Du Sud who looks an exciting five year old who has been well backed for this event and off 131 might have some in hand.

Hoe Joly Smoke has been a consistent performer this season and is looking to take his form to the next level in the Grade Two Premier Novices' Hurdle.

Another big shout on the afternoon is Santos Blue with handy 7lb claimer Ben Sutton taking off 7lb again and this six year old could still be well in off 120.

The teams final big chance of the afternoon and arguably their best is Le Milos who is looking to have a solid prep run before heading to the Grand National.

Jockey To Follow - Donagh Meyler

Irishman Donagh Meyler could have a big day at Kelso coming across the Irish Sea to ride for Emmet Mullins who has some nice chances.

His first big runner of the afternoon comes in the Morebattle Hurdle with Mctigue looking to use his weight for age allowance to his advantage dropping back into a handicap.

For the same connections Feronily is shoved into the Grade Two Premier Novices' Hurdle on timber debut having some nice form in bumpers this season.

Meyler then gets the leg up of the JP McManus owned The Shunter who is looking to score at Kelso for a second season, this time over fences.

Meyler heads into the weekend in fantastic form running at a strike rate of 22% for the last two weeks with two wins from his last nine rides.
