1: [HURRICANE IVOR (1:45pm Doncaster) (4 votes)
One victory in five starts, with that win coming at Sandown (5f, good to soft) in July. Has since placed third in the Sky Bet And Symphony at York (5f, good) and with main rival Jawwaal now a non-runner, he has strong claims.

2: LANEQASH (3:00pm Doncaster) (2 votes)
Winner on debut a year ago in a Class 5 contest at Ascot, before a second in the Flying Scotsman here at Doncaster (7f, good), when just a head behind New Mandate. Struggled on soft ground at Newbury in October and subsequently was off for ten months, only to return last month, when an impressive second in the Group 2 – Hungerford Stakes, again at Newbury, when just a length behind Sacred. Big claims here and narrow favourite to take the victory

3: HOOK UP (3:45pm Leopardstown) (2 votes)
Two victories and five places in eleven starts, with those coming over in France (1m 4f, heavy) and at Fairyhouse (2m, soft) in a maiden hurdle, back in November. This Willie Mullins mare has a solid, recent record 712/34 and was unlucky in a amateur contest at Galway (2m, yielding to soft). Ryan Moore rides this afternoon and has the potential to pick up the victory this afternoon.

4: ROYAL FLEET (5:10pm Doncaster) (2 votes)
Charlie Appleby runner, who won the opening two races at Kempton and Yarmouth, both Class 5 contests, before stepping up to seal a treble, with victory at Newmarket (1m , good to firm) in a Class 2 contest back in July, when half a length clear of Latest Generation. Was unable to continue that run in a competitive 3-yo contest at the Ebor Meeting last time out, but was far from disgraced that day and certainly has more to come. William Buick continues onboard.

5: HOCHFELD (2:35pm Chester) (1 votes)
Solid record of six wins and eleven places in forty-nine starts for this 7-yo, with the latest victory coming back in April, at Nottingham (1m 6f, good to firm), when a length clear of Lostwitheil. He has since placed third in the Chester Cup and second in the Northumberland Plate and despite a couple of difficult runs in the last two starts, has a big opportunity to bounce back in this contest. He has two wins and three places at this venue, with Jonny Peate’s 7lbs claim adding extra appeal too
