12.55 Ascot: The Nicky Henderson yard have tasted success in this race in 2014 and 2016, plus also boast an impressive 28% record with their chaser at Ascot. With that in mind, their PYM catches the eye here. A recent second on his chase debut was a nice introduction to the bigger obstacles and after running on well over that 2m4f trip that day, the step up to 3m also looks a good move.

2.25 Haydock: This race has been won by some useful staying hurdlers in the past, including three from the David Pipe yard since 2010. He looks to have a great chance of adding to that record this year too with UMBRIGADO. This five-year-old won three times last season and wasn’t disgraced in the Grade One Mersey Novice’s Hurdle at Aintree back in April. He’s had a wind operation over the summer and having won off a break in the past then the 231-day break isn’t a concern.

2.40 Ascot: IF THE CAP FITS landed this prize last year and looks to have a massive chance of following up. This Harry Fry-trained seven-year-old has won five times over hurdles and is yet to finish out of the top three from his eight runs over the sticks. He returns after a 231-day break but has a good record fresh and jockey Sean Bowen is currently one-from-one on him.

3.00 Haydock: BRISTOL DE MAI has landed the last two renewals of the Betfair Chase and there is every reason to think this popular Nigel Twiston-Davie-trained grey can make it three. He simple loves Haydock and is currently four-from-four at the track. This race would have been his target for a while his combined winning distances from his four victories at the track is an incredible 115 lengths!
