SANDOWN
Gylo | 1:55pm bet365 Novices’ Championship Final Handicap Hurdle

Recent jump jockey champion Harry Skelton sides with Rockstar Ronnie, but it may pay to side with his stable-mate under Bridget Andrews.

Dan and Harry Skelton have formed a formidable partnership but perhaps Bridget Andrews’ mount will fare best for the Warwickshire yard on Saturday

He opened his account up at Plumpton with ease last time out after a good second on debut to a rival who has fared in a Grade 1 since.

Dan Skelton’s form in handicap’s over timber is second to none and he’s taken to make a winning start to the day here.

Mister Fisher | 2:30pm bet365 Oaksey Chase (Grade 2)

Nicky Henderson’s charge has fared a difficult time of late and has had an inconsistent campaign to date.

Mister Fisher’s sole win this campaign arrived at Cheltenham four months ago

He won the rescheduled Peterborough Chase at Cheltenham in December but his form reads PPU for the rest of the season.

However, he looked to be running back to form at Aintree before shipping Nico de Boinville out of the plate and perhaps Frodon’s gruelling Gold Cup fifth may make him vulnerable here.

Put The Kettle On | 3:05pm Celebration Chase (Grade 1)

The Champion Chaser returns to British shores after her Prestbury Park heroics and she’s taken to see off the legendary Altior here.

7lbs for a mare of this ilk proves a tough ask for any gelding to pip and she may be capable of improving again in a much weaker event than her Gloucestershire exploits in March.

Sceau Royal will get the ground he needs to make a fight of it and he is perhaps next best, but Henry de Bromhead’s yard continue to fly and Aidan Coleman’s mount can give him a fifth victory under his care.

Killer Clown | 4:50pm bet365 Josh Gifford Novices’ Handicap Chase

A winner at Kempton on Boxing Day, Emma Lavelle’s representative was an unfortunate loser in the Greatwood at Newbury next time out.

Emma Lavelle has currently trained 32 winners this season

He finished third at this track back in December – a race that’s form has been very well franked.

Remaining off a workable mark of 141, he looks the safe best in a usually competitive renewal of this contest under Tom Bellamy.
