We send three to Market Rasen where the going at the time of writing is soft, heavy in places.

Silver Tassie has his first race as a teenager in the, a 0-125 handicap chase over the extended two miles and seven furlongs, with Alain Cawley taking the ride.Despite his advancing years, he ran with a lot of credit on his seasonal debut back in October, when finishing third at Wetherby, but he disappointed back at the same venue two weeks later.Silver Tassie is a horse who goes best fresh, so this nine weeks break between races can be seen as a plus.

Blue Hussar goes to post at, with Joe Colliver who won the corresponding race on him last season taking the mount.Blue Hussar is taking the same route again as his last run was at Wetherby in December when finishing forth, the same event he was fifth in the year before.This time around he will race from a 3lb higher mark, with the soft surface being no problem.

Knocknamona didn't take up his engagement at Bangor on Thursday, and has been re-routed to contest the, a 0-105 handicap chase over two miles and five furlongs.He last ran over fences when winning at Bangor 36 days ago, and has been raised 10lb, he has since finished second over hurdles 29 days ago, and he will have to carry an extra 15lb this time.Back in 2019 he achieved a career high mark of 109 over fences, so on that form he still looks on a reasonable mark.
