Weight: 11-12

Days: 21

One of the feature races across the Cheltenham card is the hotly contested Grade Three Caspian Caviar Gold Cup and we think Master Tommytucker can defy his top weight to land the spoils.

Having been a horse with bundles of potential but never really showing it, this term he seems to have turned over a new leaf and his jumping has improved massively.

Although winning on his seasonal debut last term, he then went on to fall twice in a row, with many thinking his potential was short lived.However, he made his return this season at Newton Abbott and jumped much better to finish a good second behind Al Dancer.

From there he has really kicked on landing back to back races with superb jumping displays, especially last time out at Haydock when winning a good Graduation Chase by 15 lengths.

He is a horse very much going places if building on his last two runs and this race show how classy he is if being able to win giving weight away all round.

Fergal O'Brien

Weight: 11-1

Days: 35

Doncaster host a superb card on Saturday and one of the feature races on the day is the Grade Two Novices' Chase that was last year won by Sam Spinner.

This term we like the look of the Fergal O'Brien trained Hurricane Harvey who has been a very consistent type for the yard over both hurdles and fences during his career placing in eight of his nine races under rules.

Having won back to back wins over hurdles last season, on his final start he went on to finish third of 18 runners behind McFabulous in the Grade Three Handicap Hurdle at Kempton.

Sent over fences this term the gelding has given a good account of himself winning on debut at Uttoxeter and then last time out finishing second behind Ga Law in the Grade Two Rising Star Novices' Chase.

This race looks to be another tough event but having jumped well on both his starts he should go well on this step up in trip.

Age: 6
Weight: 10-12
OR: 130
Days: 14

The Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle is a classy Grade Two event over three miles on Saturday and at an outside price we think Took The Lot can run a big race.

The form of the six year old has been immaculate this term, finishing second on hurdles debut at Fontwell and then coming on for that run to win his last two events at Bangor by a combined 13 lengths.

Nigel Twiston-Davies looks to have a really nice recruit and although stepping up in Grade and needing to prove it at this level, so do many in field.

The step up to three miles will either make or break this horse but on pedigree alone she should take to it well being related to a three mile chase winner.

Tom Symonds
Age: 5
Weight: 11-6
OR: 156
Days: 21

The Grade Two International Hurdle has seen some superb winners over the years and we believe Song For Someone for trainer Tom Symonds has a great chance to join that roll of honour.

This handler does not have many superstars and this five year old could well and truly turn out to be just that having landed the Grade Two Kingwell Hurdle on his final start of last term.

Last season the gelding was a model of consistency winning at Fontwell on debut before finishing a decent third behind Mack The Man and Protektorat in a strong handicap hurdle.

He stepped up to a Grade Three event at Ascot where he was a length behind Supreme Novices' Hurdle second Thomas Darby and he used that experience to win at Kempton.

On his seasonal bow this term the five year old really made his present felt in the division, landing the Grade Two Ascot Hurdle, seeing off last year's winner of the International Hurdle Call Me Lord and Cheltenham Festival winner Laurina.

Symonds believes his gelding although showing clear stamina does not lack pace and drop down in trip should see him be able to dominate if going from the front again.

Another bonus is that this handler has been in remarkable form so far this year and from his last 17 runners he has gone on to land 7 winners.

Henry Oliver

Weight: 11-3
OR: 137
Days: 34

The last race on ITV from Doncaster sees the three mile bet365 Handicap Chase and we are siding with Singlefarmpayment, who is due a big run.

The Henry Oliver trained 10 year old has been such a nearly horse in staying chase events during his career having been in and around the frame in competitive handicaps at Cheltenham mostly.

Although not winning on many occasions he has placed in races like the Grade Three Ultima Handicap Chase on two occasions showing he is a very experienced runner is these contests.

This season he made his seasonal debut in November at Sandown in a Veterans' Handicap Chase and finished a good fourth behind horses that have since franked the form.

He is a guaranteed stayer and has now dropped down to a mark that looks well below a level he should be running at which should bring improvement.

Weight: 10-2
OR: 127
Days: 30

The final event on the card at Prestbury Park is the 2m4f Mares' Handicap Hurdle and the Dan Skelton trained Aggy With It looks a value pick.

The six year old mare has been very consistent this season finishing a bright second on her seasonal bow over hurdles behind Perfect Myth, Who has since gone on to frank the form.

Aggy With it herself managed to extend that form line by winning next time when stepped up in trip at Market Rasen to 2m4f and it looks to be the making of her.

She was sent to Taunton in November for her last start and she managed to land the spoils again and now heading into handicap company off a workable mark, she should go well.
