Sue Smith trains nearby and she is no stranger to the winner’s enclosure either, so her GREEN WIZARD is worth a second look in the 2m6f handicap chase (3.20pm). That he has a ‘F’ next to his name is a slight worry but that was was over hurdles and he’s a good jumper of fences in the main, as he showed when winning a novice chase at the course in May 2013.

The handicapper raised him to a new perch 132 on the back of that effort and he promised to keep on improving when chasing home the very smart Green Flag in a handicap for novices in November 2013. However, he lost his way after that, largely on account of racing on unsuitably soft ground, and he’s been plying his trade over hurdles this season. Now back over fences on a lowly mark of 117 and with ground conditions in his favour, he could well bounce to winning form against some fairly uninspiring rivals.
