Destinee Royale – 12:55 Market Rasen
Smart Stat: 17% - Venetia Williams's strike rate with handicap chase debutants
A bumper winner on her sole start in that discipline, Destinee Royale hasn’t gone without promise over hurdles since. She shaped as if still retaining all of her ability after 11 months off when runner-up at Lingfield last month and, though she only ran to a modest level at Wincanton last time, she certainly needs keeping an eye on now handicapping over fences.
Blue Monday – 14:18 Wincanton
Smart Stat: £15.59 - Fergal O'Brien's profit to a £1 level stake with only one runner on the card
Blue Monday duly left his chasing debut form behind when justifying support to get off the mark at Hereford in December, the testing conditions clearly holding no fears for him. He ran respectably under an attacking ride at Fakenham last time, tactics which possibly stretched his stamina in the end and saw him finish third. He still remains open to progress in this sphere however, and makes plenty of appeal at this level.
Get On The Yager – 14:56 Market Rasen
Smart Stat: 27% - Dan Skelton's strike rate at Market Rasen since the start of the 2014/15 season
A good third in the Midlands Nation, Get On The Yager ran below form at Cheltenham on his reappearance, but took a step back in the right direction at Ascot last time. He still held every chance when stumbling on landing three from home, all but ending his claim, and this looks a good opportunity for him to make amends and regain the winning thread.
