The first race of the day is the Amateur Jockey's Handicap Chase over three miles and Igor for Nicky Henderson could have a big say on the proceedings.

The seven year old gelding will be ridden by the very experienced Sam Waley-Cohen, that is one of the best amateur's around.

Although Igor has been a hard horse to train, last time out he looked sure to run a big race at Sandown when coming down two out on his chase/seasonal debut.

The step up in trip today should bring more improvement and if his jumping has improved he could be a big player.

Days: 34

The Londesborough Handicap Chase over two miles looks a very competitive event and the horse we believe takes the eye is Dandolo Du Gite.

The Neil Mulholland trained gelding looks a big improver for the yard having had his first run in over a year at Wetherby and although finishing seventh of 11 it would have put him right for the rest of the season.

His final run before that came in May 2019 when winning a decent event at Southwell by 19 lengths and if fit for the run could be bang there off this mark on nice ground.

Dan Skelton
Age: 7
Weight: 11-2

Days: 33

Alnadam for the inform Dan Skelton looks to have a huge chance in the Limited Handicap Chase over 2m4f at Sandown on Friday.

The seven year old has been a very consistent horse throughout his career, winning two of his six events under rules and hitting the frame in another three.

The son of Poliglote was a smart horse over hurdles winning a decent event at Hereford on his final start last season, which saw him beat Demachine, who has since come out and won over fences.

Alnadam was sent over fences for the first time in his career on his seasonal bow at Carlisle in November and finished a good second in a similar event to that on Friday.

He will be sure to come on for that blow out and only 4lb higher makes him a very interesting runner with him having low mileage for his age and showing so far that this mark could be very workable.

Alan King

Weight: 11-0
OR: 130
Days: 22

The feature race of the day on Friday is the Grade Two Ballymore Winter Novices' Hurdle and this five runner event sees a star studded line up of potential superstars head to post.

The horse we like is the Alan King trained Valleres for owners Simon Munir and Isaac Souede after the five year old has made a very smart start to his life over hurdles.

Valleres was a decent bumper horse finishing third on debut in February behind the likeable Bothwell Bridge, who has since gone on to be a good looking hurdler.

In October the gelding made his seasonal debut at Wetherby where he landed a nice Novices' Hurdle and has since backed that up last time out when finishing second behind Threeunderthrufive for Paul Nicholls at Ludlow.

He drops back in trip to the distance he won over on debut and if coming on for his two runs so far this term has a huge chance, with more rain the better for this horse.

Days: 26

The penultimate race of the day on the six race card is the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle which will act as a qualifier for the big race at the Cheltenham festival.

The horse we like in this one is the Philip Hobbs trained Espion who was very impressive last time out and the run suggested that a step up in trip would help him.

Having needed his run at Uttoxeter on seasonal debut he then came to Sandown over 2m4f and ran a much more encouraging race to finish third.

Stepping up to nearly three miles today looks well within his range and he also looks to be on an attractive mark.

Sue Gardner
Age: 5
Weight: 10-11
OR: 115
Days: 23

The Mares' Handicap Hurdle over 2m4f looks a very interesting race and Emmpressive Lady seems to be the most logical selection on form alone.

The Sue Garner trained mare sits at the top of the market having raced twice this season, both times to a good standard seeing her land the spoils last time out.

Having finished fourth on seasonal debut at Plumpton in November, she improved massively for that run to win at Exeter when stepped up in trip and getting a further distance on Friday makes her another big player.
