Lay Elusivity 3.613/5 in the 15:40 @ Southwell
Back The Last Bar 3.711/4 in the 16:20 @ Warwick
Back Crack Of Thunder 7.87/1 Each Way in the 16:50 @ Warwick

Our first mover can be found in the 15:40 5f Handicap on the all-weather at Southwell, where Elusivity has drifted out to 3.613/5 from a low of 3.02/1. The eight-year-old has been in fine form on the all-weather of late, winning three of his last four starts albeit in lesser company than today's race. Of his current mark he doesn't have much room for error though and could find one too good for him in Casterbridge who is making his all-weather debut. We feel that this makes him a tempting lay at 3.613/5.

We then head to Warwick for our first positive, in the 16:20 2m5f Mares Handicap Hurdle, where The Last Bar has seen strong support in to 3.711/4 from a high of 4.67/2. This mare is closely related to a very useful 2m4f - 3m2f jumps winner and has plenty of scope for further improvement on her handicap debut. She was last seen when running a close second in a novice event over 2m at Doncaster last month where she showed marked improvement. Harry Skelton teamed up with his brother Dan Skelton have a 23% strike rate at Warwick (13 winners from 66 runners) and we feel that this lightly raced six year old can go close.

We then stay at Warwick for the 16:50 3m5f Handicap Chase, where Crack Of Thunder has seen steady support in to 7.87/1 from a high of 10.09/1. This seven year old was given a fantastic ride when winning a 3m1f hurdle race here in May last year, however his efforts since that day have been laboured. Charlie Longsdon and Aiden Coleman have a 23% strike rate at Warwick (3 winners from 13 rides) which is a plus and now the gelding is back from a break and is also up in trip, this could well be what he needs to make a return to the winners enclosure.
