3pts win PLANET OF SOUND (SP) Racing Post Chase

This race takes far less winning than it use to and there is no doubt that Planet of Sound possesses the quality to give weight away here. Quite simply, a reproduction of his Hennessey form would be surely enable him to win this and there is every reason to suggest that he will be turned out here in peak condition and produce his optimum.

3pts win CAPPA BLEU 15/2(Generally available) Weatherbys Bloodstock Insurance Chase

Although this gelding has not developed into the horse he looked he could be when winning the 09 Cheltenham Foxhunters in impressive style, he is still a very talented individual with plenty of miles still left on the clock. There is nothing to be too scared of here and he looks sure to give a very good account of himself.

3pts win GILES CROSS 11/2 (Generally available) Betfred Grand National Trial

For one plying his trade in these sort of events, Giles Cross is as reliable as you could get and there is no sign of him becoming jaded just yet. He ran another fine race for the second year running in the Welsh National and on revised terms, and in the sort of race where every pound will count, he can reverse the form with the winner.

1.5pts win ORZARE 10/1 (Generally available) Betfair Don´t Settle For Less Handicap Hurdle
1.5pts win CRACK AWAY JACK 10/1 (Exchanges) Betfair Don´t Settle For Less Handicap Hurdle

Hailing from a yard that excels in this sort of event,Orzare looks very much one who would pay to follow blindly this season and can turn the recent course form with Smad Place around.

Crack Away Jack's last run over hurdles was when 4th in the 09 Champion Hdle. It's more than likely that he retains most of that ability and if so he should be able to go close to defying his weight.

1.5pts win EMPIRE LEVANT 23/1 (Betfair) Betfair Hdle
1.5pts win THIRD INTENTION 14/1 (Generally available) Betfair Hdle

Empire Levant has run well on all his starts here and came up against a highly progressive animal last time who then went on to run Binocular close at Kempton. He is overall on a definite upward curve himself and at the odds available is a far more attractive proposition than stable companion Zarkander.

Third Intention travels like a classy sort in his races - and this level track will suit him far better than Cheltenham where he flattened out in the Greatwood after looking sure to figure in a big way. He has one of these valuable handicaps in him.
