After drawing a blank at Carlisle on Wednesday, AP McCoy heads to Stratford for three rides.

1440 Stratford: Snake Eyes

Held in very high regard by the Nicky Henderson team but still a maiden after three career starts. Irish Cavalier a formidable rival but Snake Eyes looks the sort to show significant improvement at some stage - perhaps starting this afternoon. Fourth

1510 Stratford: Very Stylish

Very in and out and threw in a stinker when last seen at Stratford in July but capable of making his presence felt in this grade on a going day and the form of the Jonjo O'Neill yard is a definite plus. Sixth

1610 Stratford: Bob Keown

Plenty of promise when second in an Irish point-to-point last year and rated a bright prospect by connections but this looks a warm maiden hurdle with a host of unexposed rivals from top yards. Forecast price: 4/1
