2.20 Wear A Hat Day Supporting braintumourresearch.org Novices' Hurdle (4) 2m

Timeform Top Rated:
139 2. DENMEAD Dan Skelton Harry Skelton
137 1. CONSTANCIO Donald McCain Brian Hughes
120p 8. LADY MARWAH Michael Scudamore Tom Scudamore

Analyst's Verdict:
Denmead was undoubtedly disappointing both starts in November given the impression he created on hurdles bow at Huntingdon, but he's since undergone a breathing operation and is certainly in the right hands to get back on track. Constancio is the obvious danger on form but he's hardly bombproof (ran out last time) while Wapping could be a player given his Flat ability.


2.50 Follow @racingtv On Twitter Handicap Chase (4) 1m7f36y

Timeform Top Rated:
112 6. COOL VALLEY William Young Jnr Danny Cook
110+ 8. PADDLING Micky Hammond Alain Cawley
110 3. LAS TUNAS R. Mike Smith Richie McLernon

Analyst's Verdict:
Las Tunas has been in good form this year which should count for plenty in this field. Paddling has dipped below his winning mark, while Oliver's Gold made more of an impact off his sliding mark at Southwell.


3.25 Sixt One - The Ultimate Mobility App Handicap Hurdle (4) 2m

Timeform Top Rated:
134 7. FRANSHAM Pam Sly Paul O'Brien (3)
133p 4. GREY DIAMOND Alan King Wayne Hutchinson
132 5. BENNY IN MILAN Denis Hogan Denis Hogan

Analyst's Verdict:
Falcon Sun was still there pitching when falling 3 out in a much deeper race than this at Newbury 4 weeks ago, and assuming he's suffered no ill effects, is fancied to quickly regain the winning thread. Fransham also failed to complete last time, albeit through no fault of his own, and he remains of interest, with Grey Diamond completing the shortlist.


3.55 Racing TV In Stunning HD Handicap Chase (4) 2m5f75y

Timeform Top Rated:
135+ 1. FLOWERY Iain Jardine Conor O'Farrell
134? 2. WILBERDRAGON Charlie Longsdon Jonathan Burke
131 6. ASTRACAD Nigel Twiston-Davies Sam Twiston-Davies

Analyst's Verdict:
Flowery has been turned inside out by Iain Jardine and another victory beckons. Lough Salt is feared most ahead of Henry's Joy.


4.30 racingtv.com Handicap Hurdle (3) 2m3f154y

Timeform Top Rated:
142 1. SIMPLY A LEGEND Alan King Tom Bellamy
141+ 7. DUBAI ANGEL Ruth Jefferson Jamie Hamilton
140 6. THEATREBAR Dan Skelton Harry Skelton

Analyst's Verdict:
Dan Skelton does very well here so it's perhaps worth chancing the well-handicapped Theatrebar to bounce back to form. Thosedaysaregone and Simply A Legend filled the first 2 places over C&D in January and are the pair likely to give him most to think about.


5.05 Family Fun Raceday - Sunday 28th April Standard Open National Hunt Flat (5) 2m

Timeform Top Rated:
107 2. DOG OF WAR Dan Skelton Harry Skelton
105 1. ALL ABOUT YOU Nigel Twiston-Davies Sam Twiston-Davies

Analyst's Verdict:
All About You is probably the percentage call on the back of his Carlisle debut second at the start of this month, although strong market support for newcomers such as Biblical and/or Old Jeroboam would put a slightly different slant on things. Dog of War could easily step up on his debut and is also respected.


5.35 Join Racing TV Now "Grassroots" Hunters' Chase (6) 3m45y

Timeform Top Rated:
136 2. ALWAYS ON THE RUN Tom George Mr Noel George (3)
135 1. MARINERO David Christie Mr David Maxwell
124 4. RAVISHED G. C. Brewer Mr Joe Wright (5)

Analyst's Verdict:
Always On The Run had plenty of class and did enough to suggest he retains a good chunk of his old ability when third at Ludlow recently, so he's preferred to Marinero (if taking his chance) and Ravished, who seemed revitalised when scoring readily between the flags earlier this month.
