Sam Turner's Best Bets BlogZARA HOPE (Stratford, 2.40) has had a stop start career but has shown definite signs of ability, winning two races back in 2016.

She ran once in 2017 and has now returned to action after a 621-day break to finish well beaten in two starts over hurdles. The mare has to overcome another but briefer absence on Sunday, however both victories have followed a period away from racing and, a reproduction of her form when with Charlie Longsdon, can suffice on her chasing bow.

Zara Hope should be a nice each-way double-figure price.

RISK A FINE (Stratford, 5.25) takes on some bang in-form rivals in the concluding hunter chase but has been in top nick himself - the only defeat in the past four runs being at the hands of the prolific Monsieur Gibraltar.

He sauntered to an impressive and very easy victory at Warwick last time and should be very hard to beat on Sunday.
