3 pts win SAM SPINNER  8/1 (at least 4 firms,9's with one) JLT Reve De Sivola Long Walk Hdle

Created a fine impression when winning at Haydock last time. He looks a completely new proposition now and a completely different horse to the one outpointed by Mount Mews at Kelo last December, when his limitations looked exposed. There is room at the top at the moment in the staying hurdle category and today could show him to be right in the mix.

Won + 24 pts

3 pts win REGAL ENCORE  14/1 ( at least nine firms)  Lavazza Silver Cup H'cap Chase

Ran a cracker when third in the old Hennessy last time, a respectable nine lengths off the first two home who could both end up being Cheltenham Gold Cup contenders. He won this last year and appeals as the value call off a 6 lb higher mark, but clearly as good as ever. Confidence is also increased by the general well being of the stable's runners.

Lost - 3 pts
