Some of these still have some potential but Sandown third Grandads Horse would have preferred a faster surface while Whats Happening races for a new stable and has had a break since notching a double in Ireland in the summer. Easter Day will be popular, despite making mistakes when only fourth on his chasing debut at Chepstow, but we prefer RENARD D'IRLANDE. The grey was a little lucky to win at Uttoxeter 12 days ago but that will have done his confidence the world of good and he's possibly well treated here. Harry Hunt and Sergeant Dick both have decent form to their name but need to improve again to land this.
