Timeform take you through the card at Nottingham on Tuesday.


14:00 - PANOPHOBIA (5) makes plenty of appeal on pedigree and shades the vote on his racecourse debut for trainer Richard Fahey, who has made such a fine start to the season with his two-year-olds. Macho Guest and Master Grey are also interesting on debut in a race that has thrown up some good ones in the past.

14:30 - CAPPANANTY CON (1) is consistent and was only beaten a head when second at Wolverhampton last time. There is no reason why he shouldn't prove equally effective on turf and, while a 2 lb rise in the weights makes life tougher here, Cappananty Con could have more to offer now wearing a tongue tie and hood for the first time, and is fancied to continue the fine form of Robert Winston (six winners from last 23 rides).

15:00 - COEUR DE LION (5) was last seen finishing in mid-division in the Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham and his maiden status on the level is unlikely to last long off his current mark, given he has run to a Timeform rating of 137 over jumps. Chelsea's Boy remains unexposed as a stayer and rates the main danger in this third leg of the Placepot.

15:30 - DI ALTA (2) looked a fairly useful prospect when making a successful racecourse debut at Newbury in October and is entitled to improve with that initial experience under his belt. That form gives him the edge over all bar Carol on Timeform ratings here and, with the step up to this trip also expected to suit, Di Alta is fancied to take advantage of what looks a fair mark for his handicap debut and can maintain his unbeaten record for Ed Walker.

16:00 - SPORTING TIMES (6) ran a screamer at big odds when second on his racecourse bow at Leicester and promises to improve this year having been gelded. He sets a clear standard on form and makes most appeal for Placepot purposes here, with Maratha an obvious danger having pulled clear with a useful winner at Southwell two weeks ago.

16:30 - MACH ONE (6) finished well-beaten in three starts as a two-year-old, but should have more to offer this year and is fancied to make a successful return, with the application of blinkers a sign of intent. Al Nafoorah and Broad Appeal are a couple of others to consider in this concluding leg of the Placepot.

17:00 - RAINBOW ORSE (4) goes well fresh and represents the Robert Cowell yard that could hardly be in better form at present (four winners from his last 14 runners). He looks the one to beat and is taken to record a third victory over this C&D, while any market support for Miracle Garden would have to be noted on his debut for Ian Williams.
