The first big race of the afternoon is the Grade Two John Francome Novices' Chase over 2m 7 1/2f and Thyme Hill on good ground for Philip Hobbs looks the pick of the bunch.
A superstar hurdler who's record speaks for himself a Grade One winner at Aintree's Grand National meeting in 2021, he has also landed a Challow Hurdle as a novice and Long Distance Hurdle during his career.
As well as those wins he is also known for putting up placed efforts in races like the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle, Long Walk Hurdle and Stayers' Hurdle at the 2022 Cheltenham festival.
Sent chasing this season at Exeter in the Silver Bowl Novices' Chase he showed serious ability to win easily and now against some younger horses he will need to be just as a good.
He is a better horse than these in the field and the only thing that can stop him are the fences.
