Largy Shark - 13:00 Wetherby
Largy Shark improved from his bumper form at the first time of asking over hurdles, winning in fine style at Ayr in November, and he can follow up with further progress to come. Cerendipity is also open to improvement after scoring at Catterick last time and is feared most, ahead of Snowy Evening.
Twinjets - 13:10 Sandown Park
It's hard to get away from Twinjets, whose Leicester form was franked in a big way by Cuthbert Dibble at Leicester earlier in the week, so an opening BHA mark of 121 could prove very lenient. I Shut That d'Or and Twin Power head the opposition.
Good Land - 13:20 Leopardstown
Good Land won what looked an interesting race in very taking fashion here over the Christmas period and looks the type to go on to better things now stepping up in grade, so he gets the nod. Weveallbeencaught saw his Cheltenham form franked last weekend and looks a big threat with further progress on the cards, as does Sandor Clegane following an impressive win at Punchestown.
Manaafith - 15:01 Lingfield Park
This is a much tougher assignment compared to the handicaps Manaafith has landed on her last two starts, but she is a perfect 5-5 on the all-weather and remains a filly of significant potential. Indeed, she may well find the required to improvement to see off higher-rated rivals Sir Busker and Tempus, greatly respected though they are. Sir Busker is second choice.
Cuban Cigar - 15:48 Musselburgh
The reliable Cuban Cigar has had the form of his fourth in a C&D Class 2 on New Year's Day boosted a couple of times since and can deservedly get his head back in front now taking a drop in grade. Smart Lass won this race last year and could give his owner a 1-2. Zamond and Rewired complete the shortlist.
Kingdom Come - 19:00 Kempton
After 17 months off, Kingdom Come got off the mark in very good style at this C&D 16 days ago and he can make a successful handicap debut with plenty of improvement to come. Chola Empire also arrives on the back of a recent win and is feared most, ahead of the 3-time C&D winner Sayifyouwill.
