One of the best bets on the card comes in the Group Two Hampton Novices' Chase over three miles and we can't see past the smart front runner Threeunderthrufive.

The McNeilly owned gelding was a smart horse in bumpers that made the leap over hurdles last term and looked like a very talented stayer.

Racing five times he went on to win four events in good style between 19f and 24f only suffering his first defeat in the Grade One Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival when a valiant sixth.

This season he has been sent over fences and has always looked the type to progress for fences and he has done just that.

Needing his first experience at Chepstow behind a subsequent next time out winner, he has since landed a hat-trick of victories over the bigger obstacles, landing a nice race at Exeter before heading to Cheltenham in a good event where he won nicely.

Looking to land the hat-trick last time out he bolted up in a three runner event at Doncaster and back in a small field against lesser opposition he should get the job done again.


Trainer To Follow - Venetia Williams

Venetia Williams has had a fantastic season to date and will be looking to keep her good run going at Warwick on Saturday with some live chances.

Her best chance of the afternoon comes in the second event of the afternoon where Brave Seasca is looking to land a hat-trick of wins.

In the feature Classic Handicap Chase She fields the ever reliable Achille who revels in these trips on soft ground and 3lb lower than his last run could got close again.

Williams heads into the meeting sporting a strike rate of 21% for the last two weeks, having managed to land six winners from 29 runners.

Jockey To Follow - Aidan Coleman

Aidan Coleman is a jockey in a rich vein of form this term and on Saturday at Warwick he has managed to pick up a very handy book of rides.

In the first race of the afternoon at Warwick he sits on Flinteur Sacre who has all the potential in the world but now needs to fulfil it.

In the Grade Two Leamington Novices' Hurdle he gets the mount on the Nicky Henderson trained Surrey Quest who looks to have a huge chance stepping up in grade.

Finally, in the Pertemps Handicap Hurdle Qualifier, Sporting John looks to have a big chance if getting back to anywhere near his best.

Coleman heads into the meeting on Saturday running at a 25% strike rate for the last fortnight, managing to land five winners from 20 runners.
