Blaklion can gain handsome compensation for his premature exit in the Grand National with the bet365 Gold Cup Handicap Chase at Sandown.

Altior can give the jumps season a fitting finale by winning the bet365 Celebration Chase, bidding to retain his crown on the back of being crowned two-mile king in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham.

Double Shuffle ran below form behind Might Bite at Aintree last time but is worth another chance in the bet365 Oaksey Chase.

Proschema looked a potentially smart colt when opening his account at Doncaster and can back up that opinion by following up in the Read Silvestre De Sousa At 188Bet Novice Stakes at Haydock.

Pipers Note should be ready to get off the mark for the season in the At The Races Sky 415 Handicap at Ripon, while Grey Britain can cash in at Doncaster for the Wateraid Handicap.

Benie Des Dieux can grab the headlines at the Punchestown Festival in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Annie Power Mares Champion Hurdle.
