DOUBLE: Carlton Jack and Tutchec.
Jonjo O'Neill was one of the stars of the show at the Cheltenham Festival and he can keep up the good work with Carlton Jack primed to strike at Ffos Las.
The master of Jackdaws Castle had a bit of a quiet spell mid-season but his horses are clearly thriving now the spring weather has arrived and Carlton Jack is judged ready to return to the fray.
He will be having just his seventh hurdles start but he has made a reasonable impact so far, winning twice back in October, first at Uttoxeter and then at Sedgefield.
Carlton Jack nearly threw away victory on the latter occasion, jinking right in the closing stages, but managed to hold on by a neck from the game Mr Utah.
While he did drift badly, Carlton Jack kept on again once his jockey had taken hold so he did not look to be the shirking type.
He has has clearly not been quite right since as he has not run and a 10lb hike in the interim is far from ideal.
However, he is still pretty unexposed and with the O'Neill yard in such good heart, Carlton Jack merits the utmost respect in the Register For WearAHat Day 2014 Handicap Hurdle.
Charingworth has been given plenty of time to recover from his last outing and that patience can pay dividends in the 32Red.com Handicap Chase.
The 11-year-old may be reaching his twilight years but he still retains plenty of ability, as evidenced by his third in very testing conditions at Haydock in December.
Charingworth was most determined that day and has actually been eased 3lb for finishing third in what was probably only an average heat.
Tutchec can make it five wins on the bounce in the ApolloBet Online Casino Handicap Chase at Carlisle.
Nicky Richards' charge has shot up 33lb in the ratings after beginning his winning spree at this track back in October.
He has added two more triumphs at the Cumbrian venue since, before scoring at Newcastle on his most recent outing.
The value of that form is probably debatable and while Tutchec was helped when his main rival made a hash of the penultimate fence, he then ploughed through the last himself.
Tutchec survived that mistake and it probably limited his subsequent rise as he may well have won by further otherwise.
