Keith Hamer fancies Paul Nicholls to strike in the feature at Chepstow and has a tip for every race in the UK and Ireland.

Nap: Secret Investor 3.25 Chepstow

Next best: Dark Power 4.55 Goodwood

Secret Investor can give his supporters a windfall by starting the autumn campaign with a notable triumph in the Fox Family Persian War Novices' Hurdle at Chepstow on Sunday.

Trainer Paul Nicholls put the six-year-old away after he registered his first wins over the smaller obstacles at Stratford and Kempton in the spring.

With a good summer behind him, Secret Investor can confirm he is a bright prospect by landing this Grade Two heat having had a wind operation over the summer.

Barney Dawn can make a successful comeback in the John Ayres Memorial Handicap Chase for trainer Fergal O'Brien.

The eight-year-old is highly thought of by connections and enjoyed a good novice campaign over fences until falling at Ayr on his final run of the season, when sent off favourite.

Hopefully, Barney Dwan can put that blip behind him and get the new campaign off to the best possible start.

Not That Fuisse can carry on where he left off in the spring by completing a hat-trick in the Chepstow Handicap Hurdle.

Trainer Dan Skelton gave the five-year-old a break after he struck at both Uttoxeter and Aintree in May.

With his handicap mark of 127 protected, Not That Fuisse can keep up the good work.

Dark Power can show the way in the Netbet Betmaker Handicap on Goodwood's final meeting of the 2019 Flat season.

The Clive Cox-trained four-year-old has had a fairly light campaign with just the four starts leading up to this six-furlong dash over the Stewards' Cup course.

As a result, Dark Power is fresher than his rivals and heads to Sussex on the back of a victory, albeit a narrow one, at Haydock. He knuckled down to his task to hold Lord Oberon by a neck and there is no reason why he should not keep on improving.

He had run a decent race to finish eighth to Gunmetal in the Great St Wilfrid Handicap at Ripon on his previous outing.

Eddystone Rock can take advantage of an attractive mark to end a 14-month lean spell in the Goodwood Racehorse Owners Group Handicap.

John Best's six-year-old is 6lb lower than when he was last successful at York in August 2017 and is also taking a drop in class after finishing fifth in the Group Three Deutsches St Leger at Dortmund four weeks ago.

Juveniles have to be pretty decent to defy a penalty but William Knight's Sir Busker looked just that when winning at Newbury and will take all the beating in the Netbet Best Odds Guaranteed EBF Novice Auction Stakes.

Having his third start, he kept on well under pressure to beat Alfred Boucher who has gone close again since.

Sporting Life tips:

CHEPSTOW: 2.15 Elysees, 2.50 Jaunty Flyer, 3.25 SECRET INVESTOR (NAP), 4.00 Henri Parry Morgan, 4.35 Not That Fuisse, 5.10 Barney Dwan, 5.40 Beaufort West.

GOODWOOD: 2.00 Orin Swift, 2.35 Sir Busker, 3.10 Conspiritor, 3.45 Durrell, 4.20 Eddystone Rock, 4.55 Dark Power, 5.30 My Target.

LIMERICK: 1.50 Madison To Monroe, 2.25 Light Of My Life, 3.00 Good Tyne Tara, 3.35 Georges Conn, 4.10 Montalbano, 4.45 Rogue Angel, 5.20 Lite Duties.
