I'm hoping Nigel Twiston-Davies and Charlie Hills have good days on Saturday as both provide two legs of my Saturday Yankee!

I like Cogry (1400) and Foxtail Hill (1510) for the former at Cheltenham. The latter won this race last year, from a two pounds higher mark, and loves good ground and this track. He goes well fresh and everything looks in place for a big run.

Cogry is also bidding to repeat a win from 12 months ago and he too has slipped down to an attractive mark. His jumping can be a little hit and miss, but with a clear round he must go close.

I fancy Phoenix Of Spain to upset hotpot Magna Grecia in the Vertem Futurity Stakes. The selection was no match for Too Darn Hot in the Champagne Stakes here last time, but there was no disgrace in that, and I think there's more to come going up a mile here. He's a value alternative to the market leader.

Breath Of Air took a big step forward from his debut to rout a subsequent winner at Newbury last time and looks a colt to follow. He's my pick for the Hilton Garden Inn Doncaster Stakes.
