Singlefarmpayment - Cheltenham 14:00

Singlefarmpayment went down only narrowly on his most recent outing in the Ultima Handicap at the Festival, producing an exceptionally polished performance for a novice. With the prospect of more to come after just five starts in this sphere, Singlefarmpayment should take plenty of beating and is fancied to make a successful return for the Tom George yard. Coologue has made a winning reappearance for the last two seasons, including in this 12 months ago, and looks likely to emerge as the chief threat, with Perfect Candidate and Doing Fine others to note in an open heat.


Cobra de Mai - Cheltenham 15:10

Cobra de Mai has had a terrific start to the season, winning four of his five outings. He ultimately did well to win as comfortably as he did having endured a troubled passage at Sedgefield last time, and should prove a tough nut to crack now back in a handicap for the Dan Skelton yard that won with North Hill Harvey here on Friday. Double W's should prove all the better for his comeback and is another to consider off this sort of mark, while Le Prezien leaves the impression he has more to offer over fences.


Thomas Campbell - Cheltenham 15:45

Thomas Campbell should relish this step up to three miles on his return to action and could be the way to go having shown he can handle big-field handicaps at the spring festivals, including when four and a quarter lengths fifth to subsequent Grade 1 winner Champagne Classic in the Martin Pipe here in March. The really unexposed one is Stick To The Plan, who should have made a successful return at Southwell recently and surely has more to give. Quarenta and Whataknight, who shaped as if needing the run on his reappearance at Newton Abbot, also make the shortlist.
