It's a fairly quiet Saturday afternoon for Betfair Ambassador Paul Nicholls, with just the three runners at Market Rasen and Ffos Las. Here's what Paul has to say about their chances...

16:25 - Le Prezien

"A high class chaser who was knocking on the door all season before winning the Grand Annual in style at Cheltenham in March."

Chaser in the making should continue to improve

15:25 - Dynamite Dollars

A lovely prospect who made a bright start to his hurdling career last season, winning well at Chepstow and Exeter before an excellent effort in the valuable novice at Haydock on Betfair Chase day. I've always felt Dynamite Dollars was a chaser in the making and am looking forward to seeing him start over fences here. He jumps well at home and should continue to be progressive this winter.

Cautious optimism about accurate jumper

16:00 - Romain De Senam

He was in top form in the early part of last season, winning twice in a week in October and performing with credit afterwards. He jumps accurately and needs good ground and I am hopeful he can improve again this season after we cauterised his palate over the summer to help his breathing. My one slight query is sending him right handed again. I remember he didn't seem entirely happy going that way round when I ran him at Kempton in March last year after he was balloted out of Cheltenham.

Good starting point for high class chaser

16:25 - Le Prezien

He is a high class chaser who was knocking on the door all season before winning the Grand Annual in style at Cheltenham in March. His mark over hurdles is 5lbs lower than it is over fences so, as he is fit and well and ready to go, this looks a good starting point for him on soft ground that he enjoys before he returns to chasing.
