After a surge of winning National Hunt NAP’s so far this week, our team has made our best selection for Friday evening’s meeting at Stratford.

After holding a good form line so far under rules this season, Paul Nicholls’ representative Alcala can reward his handler with a third win in a row in Warwickshire.

The 11-year-old has beaten two subsequent winners on his previous duo of starts at Musselburgh and Ascot, respectively, and his one-and-a-quarter length defeat to stable-mate and recent Champion Hunters Chase hero Bob And Co at Fontwell last season hardly looks a negative now.

His best efforts appear to have arrived up in trip and he has been ultra-consistent for connections, landing 11 career successes from his 33 starts.

The return to a left-handed track is not an obvious concern, having recorded victories at Haydock and Newton Abbot in recent history, and can land the hat-trick here under 3lbs claimer, Natalie Parker.
