Winners so far this season stands at 15. The aim is 100 by the end of the year.

Ascot

2.20 The progressive Next Sensation is my selection here. Although he has gone up a fair way in the handicap there may be more improvement to come. I am going to have a second selection in this race with the fluent jumping Bellenos.

3.00 Sign of a Victory won twice last season and was unlucky when beaten at Ayr on his final start.

3.35 Merry King is potentially well handicapped.

4.05 There is a good word for the unraced Chapel Hall and he is the selection.

Ayr

4.00 Voyage A New York and Lord Wishes make most appeal. Voyage a New York just gets the nod as he has had a recent run.

Down Royal

1.20 Velvet Maker

Wetherby

1.30 Pair of Jacks

2.05 Aurore D’Estruval

2.40 Cole Harden

3.15 Taquin du Seuil

4.20 Blakemount

Aintree

2.00 Garde La Victoire is a possible here with connections looking to get another hurdles win before the horse goes chasing. I will take a chance on Katgary though as I feel he may be well handicapped.

3.00 Rajdhani Expreess will do for me here. Trip and ground look right and the horse may have some improvement in him.

4.15 Parish Business won at Chepstow and could go in again.

4.50 Sergeant Mattie is another recent winner that can follow up.

5.25 Days of Heaven was second in a bumper at Taunton last season. Looks the sort to improve.

Chepstow

2.25 Sausolito Sunrise should win this.

3.35 I am torn between Son du Berlais and Blaklion here with a slight preference for the latter.

4.10 Boondooma, Vieux Lion Rouge and Regal Encore make up my short list. I will just give preference to Regal Encore.
