16:55 Fontwell Ian Williams has been firing in the winners of late and confidence in his yard must be high after their recent success at Cheltenham. Represented by five time flat winner Paris Snow here they look to have an ideal candidate on what is his Handicap debut off bottom weight. The drying ground should be another positive and though he must improve on what he’s shown so far he is handed a tentative, perhaps speculative vote to go in and any market strength would be most encouraging. Salto Chisco has a frustrating profile but looks up to this sort of level if fit enough from a 449 day break, again market vibes are worth noting but he has a chance judged on his form. Tanit River beat a fairly decent sort at Bangor last time and is the likely favourite, this trip will no fears for him and the handicapper has given him every chance despite being 9lbs higher now. Libeccio hasn’t a strong record when returning from a break but won when last seen, he deserves respect as do Midnight Shot and Paddy The Deejay. Paris Snow (WIN)

17:00 Kempton This looks fairly decent and most have some to be recommended on, Orby’s Man is probably best when caught fresh and returns from an absence dating back to July. Unexposed and only seven, he will love todays ground and is third last time was encouraging. An uncomplicated ride he would be very interesting if fully revved up but he is likely to be and as such he is handed the vote at decent odds. Cloudy Bob would bump into a well handicapped rival if he ran in two runner races all the time, desperately deserving of a victory he has every chance on a course he likes and is very much respected despite looking a tad exposed now. Double Whammy either wins, falls or unshipps the jockey and is a very risky proposition. Should he jump round he would have a decent chance and these fences are notoriously soft. Vendredi Trois made all the last day and looks one to be most weary of, this is definitely tougher than the last day but of more concern is the presence of other front runners. Firm Order has been disappointing this term but would have chances if he fancied it and though Muckle Roe is essentially exposed, he at least arrives here in decent form. Orby’s Man (E/W if 9/2+)

19:15 Wolverhampton Dove Mountain looks the biggest no brainer your ever likely to see on what is an uninspiring Wolverhampton card, the handlers only runner of the evening it looks far too obvious but we shall risk it and it is probably worth doing so given his yards form. Very unlucky when visibly cantering two starts back here it will likely take a decent ride from Spencer to get him up but should the gaps appear he is handed the vote, though luck is most certainly needed in the run from his draw. On the face of it My Mo is progressive and wouldn’t have to improve much to play a part in this, he probably deserves the main danger tag but his stamina needs proving and he does like to force the pace. Yasir is another on a crest of a wave and could play a part should the mood take, Force Of Destiny is another to watch as he is totally unexposed whilst the rest need to bounce back to form. Dove Mountain (WIN)
