David Dennis's Roman Flight has been placed in some decent events in his last couple of outings and he could find today's task at Wincanton slightly easier, but he will have the burden of top weight in what is a cracking little renewal of the Weatherbys Hamilton Insurance Handicap Hurdle at 2:40pm.
Prompter will be one of his leading rivals in the 2m contest for Jonjo O'Neill, but we feel that Alan King's McVicar could have some scope off his current mark of 124 and he has made it as our Tip Of The Day and adds great depth to one of the Thursday highlights.
Elsewhere on the card, Philip Hobbs's Allthekingshorses will be another attempting to carry top weight to success when he lines up in the Weatherbys Hamilton Insurance Silver Buck Handicap Chase at 2:10pm, but last year's winner Goring One will attempt to retain the crown he won 12 months ago.
Leicester will host some alternative national hunt action this afternoon and Roc De Guye will aim to return to winning ways in the Vale Of Belvoir Handicap Chase at 2:00pm, whilst Tony Carroll's Smart Catch will be one of a plethora of in-form rivals lining up in the Mountsorrel Novices' Handicap Chase at 3:00pm.
Market Rasen will provide the third offering of jumping action and John Quinn's Distime will return to the track after over 400 days off and will go for victory in the Emerald Green Feeds Novices' Limited Handicap Chase at 1:20pm, whilst Brian Ellison's Andreo Bambaleo is a leading contender for the 32Red.com Handicap Hurdle at 2:20pm.
