Andy returned with a bang yesterday and our top tipster has three more crackers for Thursday.
THE WARRIOR (best price 9/2)
was one of several big eye-catchers in the Victoria Cup at Ascot last time out and the level of form he showed that day entitles him to be very competitive in this slightly less exacting company. Staying on nicely from an unpromising position at halfway, Amanda Perrett’s charge did extremely well to finish as close as he did at the line and, with the booking of Ryan Moore this afternoon a sure-fire signal of intent from connections, the son of Exceed And Excel has fine prospects of going close if he handles this tricky course at the first time of asking.

FOUNTAINS BLOSSOM (best price 4/1)
struck up an immediate affinity with today’s track with a cosy success against similar company last week and even though the ratings boys will argue she has a bit to find at the weights, a horse’s wellbeing and reliability counts for more than the pure maths in races of this nature. Having not won since 2014, that well-needed victory will have done her confidence the power of good and, under the almost identical conditions to those she faced eight days ago, Anthony Honeyball’s inmate rates a decent each-way play at 4/1.

Connections and punters of PERSPICACE (best price 4/1)
must have been counting their money going down to the last at Towcester 10 day ago, but a mistake and loss of momentum at that point enabled the strong-finishing Jinsha Lake to pick his pocket in the dying strides. Prior to when disaster struck, David Pipe’s charge has impressed by the way he travelled through that strongly-run contest for the grade and if Tom Scudamore can hold onto his challenge a little later in the piece this time around, there’s every chance the son of Sir Percy can erase the painful memory of last week.
