As De Mee failed to sparkle over the Grand National fences on his most recent outing, but he can put that disappointment behind him in the Betdaq Handicap Chase at Kempton.

Fellow Paul Nicholls inmate Cyrname should also be on the scoresheet in the Betdaq Now 2% Commission Pendil Novices’ Chase.

Redicean is among the leading lights for the Triumph Hurdle so really should be winning the Betdaq #ChangingForTheBettor Adonis Juvenile Hurdle for Alan King.

Lady Buttons has been mixing it with some of the best over hurdles and fences this term but she will appreciate a drop in quality for the Betfred Super League Novices’ Chase.

Pearl Swan should not be dismissed as he returns from a year on the sidelines in the Pertemps Opportunities Around The Corner Handicap Hurdle at Chepstow.

John Gosden looks set for another stellar year with both Enable and Cracksman staying in training and while Utmost is not of their calibre, he is surely good enough to win the Betway Winter Derby Stakes at Lingfield.

Orvar appeared to feel the benefit of both a wind surgery and gelding operation when winning for Paul Midgley at Wolverhampton earlier in the month.

Midsummer Knight makes his first start since a wind op and is one to note in the Handicap at Wolverhampton.
