(1) (12:05pm Sandown) CONSTITUTION HILL was 5/2 now 5/4
Despite well-touted hurdle winners Hardkore and Might I appearing in this field, it’s Nicky Henderson’s point-to-point runner up who is fancied to make a winning debut in Sandown’s opener. For the same connections as Brain Power, he was bought for £120,000 in May and his dam was a multiple winner over hurdles. Nico de Boinville has come back from injury in fine form too.
(2) (4:00pm Wolverhampton) CLOSING BELL was 4/1 now 11/4
Has had three runs for Ed Walker finishing fourth at Chelmsford (7f, standard) in the middle of November. That was probably his weakest effort so far, as he was much closer to the winner on his previous two efforts. As such, he may have been underrated by the handicapper for his debut in this sphere, especially as he is bred to be better over this trip of a mile.
(3) (6:00pm Wolverhampton) CARDANO was 15/2 now 4/1
Was well-beaten at Doncaster (1m4f, soft) but his strike rate on the all-weather is better than on turf. Indeed he has been in the top two on four of his seven all-weather starts, winning the last two at Lingfield at the start of this year. A mark of 94 is only 2lbs higher than the last time he won and he’s had a couple of respectable runner-up finishes at Doncaster and Haydock over the autumn too.
(4) (5:30pm Wolverhampton) ENDURING was 8/1 now 9/2
Most recent fourth-placed effort came at Lingfield (5f, standard) two weeks ago when dropped back to the minimum distance. However, this three-year-old has shown much of his best form at six furlongs and was third of seven on his last run at that trip at the start of last month. He’s 1lb below his mark from that day now and David Probert has been operating at a useful 25% strike rate in recent weeks.
(5) (12:12 Chepstow) LE CAMELEON was 12/1 now 13/2
A winner of two of his four starts at Chepstow, Nick Williams’ six-year-old has been gradually building back his form since wind surgery. He was fifth at Ffos Las (2m3f, soft) on his most recent run, but his effort was better than the bare form and he wasn’t beaten all that far. Down another 2lbs for that run and at a track he likes, he could reward punters before the big races get underway.
