The Pertemps Qualifier over three miles (1.30pm) has endless possibilities and it’s debatable whether some in the field will be at their very best – horses only need to finish in the first eight to qualify for the Cheltenham Festival final. But I’d be surprised if MISSED APPROACH wasn’t ready do himself justice on his seasonal reappearance given his trainer Warren Greatrex likes to target this meeting.

The five-year-old won his only start in an Irish point-to-point and his first two hurdle starts for his current trainer, before finishing third behind a good sort in Three Musketeers when last seen out last December, a time when the stable wasn’t firing. Greatrex, who has been in excellent form of late, said in a Stable Tour that he thought the horse was handicapped on ‘the right side’ and was expecting improvement from him when stepped up to 3m. He was amongst those horses the trainer galloped at the track last week, along with stable star Cole Harden, so it’s worth taking a chance on his fitness, though Thursday’s winner Unowhatimeanharry would be greatly respected if making a quick reappearance.
