Timeform take you through the card at Leicester on Sunday.


13:00 - FORGOTTEN GOLD (1) shaped as if something may have been amiss when only eighth on his return to action at Aintree five weeks ago, dropping away quickly once headed three-out and allowed to come home in his own time thereafter. Nevertheless, he has been given some time to recover from those exertions and, with trainer Tom George in such fine form at present (three winners from last nine runners), Forgotten Gold is fancied to bounce back and can pick up where he left off when second on his final outing of the 2015/16 campaign at Cheltenham.

13:35 - LIKE A DIAMOND (3) fared better than the bare result would suggest when ninth on his most recent outing at Carlisle, travelling strongly on the front end throughout and only weakening after making a bad mistake at the second-last. He takes a significant drop in grade here and, although El Massive would be an obvious danger on his best form, Like A Diamond deserves another chance to confirm the promise of his previous fourth at Market Rasen and makes most appeal in this second leg of the Placepot.

14:05 - WESTENDORF (11) looked a fairly useful prospect when winning a Fairyhouse bumper for previous connections in May and again shaped well before falling two-out on his hurdling debut at Ffos Las three weeks ago. He is likely to have been placed but for his unfortunate exit on that occasion and, while it remains to be seen whether that incident will have left a mark on him, Westendorf is entitled to improve with the experience under his belt and can open his account at the second time of asking.

14:40 - LEE SIDE LADY (3) ran creditably when second on her return from five months off the track at Fakenham last time, keeping on gamely once headed in the straight and simply unlucky into bump into an unexposed sort making his handicap debut. That represented as good an effort as when winning her penultimate outing at the same venue in May and - likely to improve with that initial outing of the season under her belt - Lee Side Lady is fancied to see off the attentions of Catchthemoonlight and can continue trainer Neil Mulholland's terric form of late (seven winners from last 26 runner).

15:10 - MILAN OF CRYSTAL (2) benefited from an enterprising ride when successful on her most recent outing over hurdles at Wincanton, building up a healthy advantage after jumping the third-last and just having enough left in the locker to hold the challenge of the runner-up. She returns to fences on debut for the Dave Roberts yard here and, although disappointing on her only previous outing in this sphere, Milan of Crystal has winning form in points and is potentially very well-treated from a mark 1 lb lower than when winning last time.

15:40 - DOMINADA (1) showed improved form when a decisive winner of his penultimate outing at Carlisle and duly followed up from the same mark at Ludlow seven days later. He appeared to have matters in hand from an early stage on that occasion and - 3 lb clear of his nearest rival on Timeform ratings here - Dominada appears to hold sound claims of completing the hat-trick and can defy a 15 lb hike in the weights in this final leg of the Placepot.
