The feature race is the Handicap Chase at 4.00pm and Fife trainer Nick Alexander, who won the race last year with Gold Opera, saddles Lake View Lad, winner of his last start at Haydock last month. Among his four opponents is Northern Irish raider Master Ruffit from the Neil McKnight yard.

Lucinda Russell has been in good form at the track this season and could continue that run with Saint Freule in the toteexacta Handicap Hurdle at 2.20pm

Bobbie’s Diamond has been in great form for trainer Andrew Hamilton having won and been second at Ayr on his only starts since being bought out of Tony Martin’s Irish yard and will be fancied to win again in the totequadpot Handicap Chase over two miles five furlongs at 2.50pm.

Brian Hughes is an eye-catching booking on the Mike Smith trained Our Lucas in the tote Trifecta Handicap Hurdle for the James Barclay Challenge Trophy where his biggest danger could be course winner Charmant for trainer James Ewart.
