The 3m veterans’ handicap chase (5.00pm) features some familiar names, including Grand National winner Pineau De Re. He is likely to need his first run back, as will several others, but one horse who is capable of going well fresh is the Nick Williams-trained ALFIE SPINNER. He has been frustrating to back know to say the least with just one success in 20 starts over fences, but that did come in a novice chase here and he has been quite highly tried since.

Now a ten-year-old he qualifies for these type of races and his handicap has plummeted from a peak of 140 to today’s 123. He will surely take advantage of that in the coming weeks and it could be today against rivals who will be lacking peak fitness. The selection has been off for 227 days himself, but he invariably runs well on his first run back and will have the services of Richard Johnson for the first time.
