We send three on the short trip to Sedgefield on Wednesday, where the going is currently described as soft, good to soft in places.

Duo D'Enfer was a convincing winner at Sedgefield on Boxing Day, but then was slightly disappointing at Kelso last time, where he probably didn't fully see out the trip, although being hampered two out by a faller didn't help. He now returns to Sedgefield, and drops back in distance. He runs at, in the 0-120 handicap chase, over two miles and one furlong, with Emma Smith-Chaston once again in the saddle.

Buto was at his best in May and June of last year, over three miles at Hexham, when winning, and then finishing an equally good third. He returned from a four months break to finish fifth at Musselburgh 51 days ago, which will have sharpened him up, and this race will also set him up for the season ahead. Buto runs at, in the 0-100 handicap hurdle, over the extended two miles and three furlongs, with Emma Smith-Chaston taking the ride.

Howzat Hiris made a very promising return at Market Rasen back in November, and then backed that up when finishing second at the same track in December, so it was a surprise to see her put in a below par effort at Catterick 37 days ago. Howzat Hiris is an out and out stayer, so conditions this time will be more to her liking. She runs at, over three miles and three furlongs, in the 0-100 handicap, with Emma Smith-Chaston retaining the ride.
