13:55 - TWOJAYSLAD (6) produced a career-best effort to regain the winning thread at Warwick in December and doesn't appear too harshly treated from 9 lb higher in the weights here. Indeed, Twojayslad remains open to more improvement after just three starts in this sphere and is fancied to follow up with a defeat of Pithivier for the in-form Ian Williams yard (two winners from last five runners).

14:30 - SNOW LEOPARDESS (8) showed a useful level of form when winning two of her three starts in bumpers and completed a simple task when opening her account over hurdles at the second attempt at this venue in November. She still didn't look the finished article on that occasion, but should prove capable of better with that experience under her belt and makes more appeal than Creep Desbois in this second leg of the Placepot.

15:00 - MIGHT BITE (1) was around 18 lengths clear when hitting the last and falling in the Kauto Star Novices' Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day, and would have put up a very smart performance had he completed. The winner Royal Vacation boosted the form when following up at Cheltenham last month and Might Bite should prove much too classy if none the worse for that tumble here.

15:30 - CHASE END CHARLIE (3) bounced back to something like his best form when successful at Wincanton three weeks ago and gave the impression he would be every bit as good now back over three miles. He has a 5 lb hike in the weights to contend with here, but the determined attitude he showed last time will continue to stand him in good stead and he is taken to follow up in this fourth leg of the Placepot.

16:05 - CHELSEA FLYER (2) was disappointing when only fifth on his most recent outing at Plumpton, but had valid excuses on the day (not settling fully and making mistakes) and is better-judged on the form of his earlier second at Newbury. That form leaves him 11 lb clear of the penalised Charlemar on Timeform ratings and he should prove extremely difficult to beat if bouncing back here.

16:40 - BRING BACK CHARLIE (8) has been disappointing since getting off the mark at Uttoxeter in October, but he is beginning to receive some respite from the handicapper as a result and is now just 1 lb higher in the weights than when recording that first success. He should be thereabouts if reproducing that level of form and shades the vote in this final leg of the Placepot.

Recommendation:

Win back TWOJAYSLAD in the 13:55 at Doncaster

Placepot permutation:

13:55 - 6
14:30 - 8
15:00 - 1
15:30 - 3
16:05 - 2
16:40 - 8
