Find out how to get our experts' best bets for Betfair Tingle Creek day and insight from Betfair ambassadors Paul Nicholls, Gordon Elliott, Olly Murphy and more...
Paul Nicholls: "We know Politologue is best fresh, he looks stunning, has had an away day and couldn't be in better shape. The more it rains at Sandown the more it will suit him."
It's a big day at Sandown for Betfair Ambassador Paul Nicholls, who will saddle two exciting prospects in the Grade 1 Novice Chase before trying to land the big one, the Betfair Tingle Creek.
He says: "We know Politologue is best fresh, he looks stunning, has had an away day and couldn't be in better shape. The more it rains at Sandown the more it will suit him."
Betfair Ambassador Olly Murphy has four runners across the cards at Sandown and Aintree, including Brewin'upastorm in the Betfair Tingle Creek. Our man thinks his runner is in with an each-way chance.
He says: "Brewin'upastorm is a high-class horse on his day and I couldn't be happier with him."
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."
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."
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.
"Eldorado Allen showed useful form over hurdles and has made a good start over fences, winning both outings. He jumped well in the main when scoring on his chasing debut at Newton Abbot and again put in a sure-footed round when following up at Cheltenham last month."
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 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."
