I would normally have given Got Away a decent chance in the Unibet Mares' Hurdle at Sandown, but Laurina’s participation has put paid to that!

Quite simply, Laurina looked exceptional last year and this should be a formality for her. She won her race at the Festival by 18 lengths and then cruised home in Grade One company at Fairyhouse and looks the real deal.

Got Away won at this Listed level a year ago – the only time she completed in her five starts since coming over from France – and is lightly-raced and will no doubt be winning this season, but it just won’t be here.

I am reunited with my old friend, Tenor Nivernais, in the Unibet Veterans' Handicap Chase.

This is the final of the Veterans' Chase Series, which is a fantastic concept. The veterans are all old favourites and many of the public will have struck up affinities with these horses, whose careers have no doubt been extended by this initiative.

And the prize-money is exceptional with nearly £62,000 on offer for the winner.

I won the race on Pete The Feat a couple of years ago, but I think I’ll be struggling to repeat the feat with Tenor Nivernais.

He has run consistently well in all the big handicaps but understandably hasn’t shown the same high level of form in recent seasons. That said, you never know with these types of races, and he definitely still enjoys his racing, which is the main thing.

I like the look of the Dr Richard Newland-trained Rock Gone. He’s 11 years old but only run 14 times.

He ran very well in leg eight of the series at the course in November, his first run for a year, so will presumably come on for that.

He was second in the Sodexo Gold Cup on his penultimate run and seventh at the Cheltenham Festival the time before so has a touch of class too. He would be my likeliest idea of the winner.

I’ve got three rides at Plumpton tomorrow, with the pick being Stonecoldsoba in the Watch Today's Race Replays On attheraces.comHandicap Hurdle.

I rode him at Leicester on his most recent start a month ago. He showed a return to form that day, having come down the handicap a little, to come third, only beaten half a length. A repeat of that should see him go close.
