3.40 Catterick: Big Bad Buzz

He could be an absolute blot with even just normal improvement from his latest run.

The cat is definitely out of the bag with Big Bad Buzz, who after running down the field at 250/1 on his penultimate start four months previously went off as 9/2 favourite on his debut in a novices' handicap chase last time.

Who knows whether he would have won, but he was going as well as any when hitting three out and just couldn’t get going again. I am certain Big Bad Buzz will have been well schooled since that error by trainer Ryan Potter and this six-year-old is 3lb lower again in the weights here (albeit still out of the handicap).

Relkadam broke hearts last time and is back up 3lb in the weights, but he will surely be the biggest danger.

6.00 Kempton: Hold Fast

Although he needs to improve on recent efforts, Hold Fast hit form at roughly this time last season and he might be ready to do so again here.

He is back down to below his latest winning mark, which was his second course and distance win last winter. Hold Fast clearly appreciates this track and only really runs here these days, but he has bagged a decent draw that suits his running style and if back to form will go close.

If this doesn't prove to be the day but he still runs well, I am happy to put him in my tracker noting when David Probert is next booked to ride. The jockey has won on this horse four times in the past.

7.00 Kempton: Come On Girl

She very much looks the most solid option here.

Fortunately I have not been involved with Come On Girl on her three runner-up efforts recently - including when heavily backed last time - but the first-time visor here might just make the difference after her recent defeats by narrow margins.

Come On Girl had gone up 2lb for each of her two previous efforts but the handicapper has relented this time and left her on the same mark here. A strong pace will suit and a draw in stall four is handy with pace inside of her.
