Kevin Blake on the Betfair Tingle Creek: The Altior conundrum

The Betfair Tingle Creek takes centre stage at Sandown this Saturday and without question the headline act is Altior. Kevin Blake assesses his chances.

He says: "His presence at the head of the betting makes this a difficult contest to have a strong view on, but he is unlikely to need to be at his very best to make a winning return to action."

Saturday Racing Tips: Tony Calvin's hoping he's Cracked It on Betfair Tingle Creek day

The weather may be miserable but the racing is top class at Aintree and Sandown on Betfair Tingle Creek Day, so find out where Tony Calvin is putting his money.

"This race has apparently been the plan for a while - in a Racing Post stable tour in mid-November trainer Harry Fry said: "He'll go for a Listed handicap hurdle at Sandown in early December and we'll hope for very soft ground" - and the booking of 7lb claimer Kevin Brogan seals the deal as far as I am concerned."

Henry VIII Novices' Chase: Timeform's runner-by-runner guide

Timeform bring you their comprehensive runner-by-runner guide to Saturday's Henry VIII Novices' Chase at Sandown and pick out their 1-2-3.

Gordon Elliott: Andy Dufresne will be suited by Navan on Saturday

It's not all about Sandown on Saturday and, for Betfair ambassador Gordon Elliott, a busy weekend begins at Navan.

He says: "I think the switch to a big, galloping track like this will suit him well and I'm hoping he is the one that they will all have to beat."

Paul Nicholls: Bang-in-form Frodon has a big chance at Aintree

Paul Nicholls also has some big chances at Aintree and Chepstow, including Frodon in the Grade 2 Many Clouds Chase.

He says: "My best chance is Frodon in the 14:40 at Aintree. He is bang in form while his main rivals have questions to answer."
