Running late and uninspired, we head off to Worcester.

1.45 - Leg 1: A handicap chase over two and a half miles to start us off, and there's a warm favourite in Spice Hill, a horse who is a professional loser. Eleven rules starts have yielded no wins and, even in a dreadful race, he's hard to be bullish about.

Mac Beattie has been well backed and wouldn't have to do anything special to get involved today, while Crack At Dawn could go well for today's amateur. He's generally amateur-ridden and has course and distance form. This is Nigel Twiston-Davies' time of year, so Brousse En Feux could be of minor interest too in a shocking opener.

A - 5 (Spice Hill), 7 (Mac Beattie)
B - 2 (Brousse En Feux), 3 (Crack At Dawn)

2.15 - Leg 2: Featherintheattic looks reasonably strong in another weak race. Quarton has had less tries than most of these and has a bit of back class.

A - 2 (Featherintheattic), 5 (Quarton)

2.45 - Leg  3: A better handicap chase this time, and one in which Palace Jester may try to make all. Alas the balance of his form gives him a fair bit to do even if getting his own way on the front. More likely candidates are Lawney Hill's Brough Academy and Jonjo's Full Of Joy. The former was quietly fancied when second over course and distance last time, and the latter comes from in form connections too.

Arenalin Flight has normally been found out at this level, but conditions aside from class are all ideal, so he's given a chance on B, along with Special Account.

A - 2 (Full Of Joy), 6 (Brough Academy)
B - 1 (Special Account), 5 (Adrenalin Flight)

3.15 - Leg 4: An interesting little mares' bumper, and Fountains Blossom catches the eye. Favourite Miss Sassypants is a once raced winner, beating second favourite, Dorkas, there. The weight differential between the two is the same here and it's hard to see how the form can be reversed.

A - 1 (Miss Sassypants), 8 (Fountains Blossom)

3.45 - Leg 5: According To Sarah is a strong favourite here on her racecourse debut. In race where all of them are either having their first run or have been worse than moderate so far, she's a banker.

A -2 (According To Sarah)

4.15 - Leg 6: This race revolves around last time out winner, Orthodox Lad. That was a dreadful race but he did it nicely and has to be included. I'll pair him up with Up To The Mark, who looks set to lead and ran a good second in a novice hurdle over half a mile further last time.

A - 5 (Up To The Mark), 6 (Orthodox Lad)
