SEIGNEUR DES BOIS can star at Chepstow in the Bath Marquees Handicap Chase.
Formerly with Ferdy Murphy, he is now with Tom George and could be yet another of those French imports the Gloucester trainer excels with.
The seven-year-old returned from a year off to win with plenty in hand at Ffos Las.
That was a win that came in really testing ground so conditions should hold no fears back in Wales and he saw the trip out particularly strongly.
There is room for improvement in his jumping, too, judged on that run so his backers should not be put off by an 8lb rise.
Angelo Poliziano looks an interesting one in the £32 Bonus At 32Red.com Handicap at Wolverhampton.
The seven-year-old has a fair strike-rate on the allweather and showed enough on his first start for Jo Hughes to suggest he will be winning again very soon.
All four of his wins on an artificial surface have come at Dunstall Park, the most recent of them coming in December over six furlongs.
However, he is equally effective at the minimum trip, with his other three all-weather wins coming at that distance and he was third at Lingfield last month.
He was slowly away that day but made reasonable progress and back in a handicap at his favourite track off a mark just 3lb higher than his last winning one, he has to be followed.
Better can be expected of Tebee’s Oasis now she has got a mark, starting in the 32Red- Poker.com Handicap.
The John Gosden-trained filly is no world-beater but showed a bit more on her latest start stepped up in trip and is the type likely to do better in this company.
Alhaban found a mile against him when narrowly denied last month and can go one better with another furlong and a half to travel in the 32RedBet.com Selling Stakes.
The handicapper has probably got a grip of Big Sylv now but she continues to perform with credit and might just be able to get her head in front once more off her current mark in the 32RedBingo.com Handicap.
Few trainers are hotter at the moment than Sean Curran and it would be no surprise to see his winning streak continue with Officer In Command in the Goffs Ready-To- Run Breeze-Up 27.03.13 Claiming Stakes at Kempton.
This seven-year-old has been in great heart himself, winning a handicap off 63 over this course and distance last month and running two good races since.
Key to the horse’s good recent form appears to have been the fitting of a visor, which is in place once again.
Storm is likely to be a short price in the Get The BetVictor App Now Median Auction Maiden Fillies’ Stakes but it is difficult to see past the Charles Hills-trained threeyear- old.
She was flying at the finish to be beaten just a nose on debut, in a race that seen the fourth come out and win since.
