Tuesday's Gallops Report has news from the West Country and includes So Fine, Tony Star, Roll The Dice and others.
Philip Hobbs has an abundance of promising novice chasers in his string and watch out for SO FINE and TONY STAR who are set to contest novice or graduation races in the next few days.
So Fine has always promised to do better as a chaser and after schooling proficiently at Sandhills, he has an entry at Towcester later in the week.
The gelding warmed-up for this switch of codes with a satisfactory run at Cheltenham when finishing in mid-division in a competitive handicap hurdle last month, a run that is thought to have brought him on.
TONY STAR is a course winner at Fontwell that has a couple of engagements, including one at that West Sussex course this week.
Apart from that triumph earlier in the season, he was in no way disgraced when finishing third behind highly-rated stablemate Lamb Or Cod at Chepstow.
He has the points on the board with regard to recent experience over fences and has also worked well since his last run.
ROLL THE DICE looks ready to win following two solid runs in defeat.
The gelded son of Oscar finished second at Exeter and third at Stratford and is due to reappear this week in a two-and-three-quarter-mile handicap chase.
He looked in good order in his latest strong breeze up the woodchip all-weather strip.
IMPERIAL CIRCUS is another handicap chaser that is expected to improve off a promising comeback run in a handicap chase, while ROB CONTI is a pea out of the same pod and is a willing and consistent operator.
ORABORA is one to watch as he makes the trip to Chepstow on Wednesday.
