1 1:30 PM - Betway Challenger Mares' Hurdle Series Final Handicap Hurdle

DUHALLOW GESTURE took advantage of a drop in class to win easily at Fontwell last time and could still be ahead of the assessor off a mark of 131. The seven-year-old should just about stay this extra furlong or so and appeals more than Aimee De Sivola, who is still a maiden over hurdles and proving hard to win with, and Rubytwo, who is consistent and should enjoy stepping back up in distance.

2 2:05 PM - Betway Challenger Two Mile Hurdle Series Final Handicap Hurdle

Cause Toujours has found one too good on the last three occasions and doubts remain over his resolution at the finish, while Hijran has won with a bit in hand the last twice but might want easier ground than this ideally. The most appealing option is CUBSWIN, who enjoyed the run of the race when winning a decent handicap at Wincanton recently. Richard Johnson rides once more and a 4lb rise doesn't look too harsh.

3 2:40 PM - Betway Challenger Staying Chase Series Final Handicap Chase

The Paddy Pie hasn't finished outside of the first two on his last four starts and could find something extra now back up in trip, while Uhlan Bute returned to form when outrunning his odds to finish fourth at Ascot 20 days ago. It is hard to ignore the unexposed QUARENTA, though, who has twice won at Warwick by fine margins this season. A 5lb rise from last time doesn't look too harsh and a sound surface is clearly essential for him.

4 3:15 PM - Betway Challenger Stayers Hurdle Series Final Handicap Hurdle

TRIXSTER wasn't disgraced when seventh in the EBF Final at Sandown last month and he can find further improvement as he steps back up from that 2m4f trip. Tim Vaughan's gelding has been very consistent throughout the campaign and he can account for the likes of Court Liability, who is fancied to bounce back to form in first-time cheekpieces, and Skidoosh, who is better than showing on his most recent outing at Newbury.

5 3:50 PM - Betway Challenger Series Mares' Chase Final Handicap Chase

The Bay Birch (first) got the better of DAUPHINE EREINE (second) when the pair met at Bangor last month but David Pipe's mare is taken to reverse that form as she is 8lb better off at these weights. Molly Carew was disappointing at Carlisle when last seen having made a bad mistake at a crucial stage and, if her jumping holds up, she is entitled to bounce back to her best.

6 4:20 PM - Betway Challenger Middle Distance Chase Series Final Handicap Chase

PRINCETON ROYALE had Vivas back in third when scoring at Ascot late last month and having jumped with expert precision to make virtually all that day, he could be capable of confirming his superiority and following up off just a 2lb higher rating. Enola Gay landed the victory he had been threatening at Wincanton latest and has to be respected in opposition, while Copper West and Irish raider A Place Apart are both players in a trappy affair.

7 4:55 PM - Betway Tim Molony Handicap Chase

Heavy going was the undoing of LOUGH DERG FARMER at Uttoxeter when plugging on for sixth in useful company last time and he has a chance to bounce back to the form of his impressive Carlisle rout now reverting to good ground. Zerachiel was a 15-length winner of this race last season but faces a tougher task now 10lb higher, while Ziga Boy and Straidnahanna are respected, although both may be more effective elsewhere.
