HeyhoeMysteree has been pointed at Monday’s Sussex National Handicap Chase at 2.50 since failing to make the cut for the Welsh equivalent over Christmas, and looks the type to go close in this marathon test.

An extreme distance on a soft surface is what Mysteree needs to produce his best, and with those conditions likely to prevail at Plumpton, he is potentially well treated for what promises to be an unusually competitive renewal. Mystere improved as soon as he was switched from Lucinda Russell to Michael Scudamore, and the latter tends to do well with horses that join his stable from this source.
