Bangor is preferred to Wincanton for Wednesday's Placepot.
"Rascal is a favourite we can take on, given both his quirky nature off the bridle and the fact that Bladoun for one won’t let him away with an easy lead."
14:25 - There's not much to split Abigail Lynch and Allez Encore on form and the former has by far the greater hurdling experience. With her flop last time easy to excuse, she's our choice.
14:55 - Though Bobbits Way has a 'squiggle', his recent form has a solid look to it and, given a few weeks off after winning at Plumpton, he's taken to finish in the places again.
15:25 - We're forced into taking Mackeyre End in this handicap with doubts surrounding so many of his rivals. Not that he comes with much in the way of worries, having two near-useful runs over hurdles to his name and recording a good victory over Wyck Hill on the second occasion.
15:55 - As with the previous leg, a lack of alternatives leads us towards Goodtoknow. The good news is he's just as sound an option as Mackeyre End, second only to improvers on his last two starts and sure to be suited to remaining at three miles-plus.
16:25 - Rascal is a favourite we can take on, given both his quirky nature off the bridle and the fact that Bladoun for one won't let him away with an easy lead. Special Wells is our best option, being the type to do better returned to the mud and unexposed in general. Try It Sometime is another who has been improving in testing ground of late and gets another chance to here.
16:55 - This bumper is quite closely-matched, though Shotofwine stands out for us and would be odds-on to make the first two. He's had three goes now, finishing second each time but often better than the result. With Maguire taking over in the saddle, he should do better.
