We Have A Dream is fancied to make a winning return

 Eddystone Rock: Lincoln fancy

It's out with the Flat and in with the jumps on ITV on Saturday as we say farewell at Doncaster where the November Handicap takes centre stage.

EDDYSTONE ROCK is my selection as he was third in the race last year and runs off 9lb lower on Saturday, on the back of an eye-catching run in Ireland last week.

Earlier on in the afternoon I'm taking Frankel filly BONA FIDE to win the Gillies Fillies' Stakes for Dermot Weld.

She has some improving to do if she's to win this but after just three starts she has enormous potential and her wily trainer tends not to waste a trip to these shores.

As for the jumps action at Wincanton, WE HAVE A DREAM is the star attraction and I really think he can develop into a serious Unibet Champion Hurdle contender this year.

Four-year-olds can find things tough, but I believe his form entitles him to go off very short for the Wincanton feature and he's the cornerstone of the Yankee and Saturday banker.

In the Mares' Handicap Hurdle at 1.50, IF YOU SAY RUN could be well ahead of her mark of 131 for Paul Nicholls.

Her most impressive performance as a novice came at this track and I think she can improve in handicaps throughout this season.
