Tuesday’s National Hunt attention turns to Stratford with six jumps contests taking place in Warwickshire.

We’re siding with local trainer Olly Murphy to claim a scalp here through Eskendash, who has had just two runs for Warren Chase since switching from Pam Sly.

He’s finished second on both appearances, and remains off an unchanged mark from his silver medal-worthy display at Ayr in April.

That rival has gone in again since, and even the victor for his Kempton second has won in the aftermath, so he doesn’t look handicapped out of things off 125 under Aidan Coleman.

El Borracho looks the obvious threat following his Worcester win earlier this month but he failed to fire on his only appearance at this track last season.
