New Agenda has had a varied campaign since winning over hurdles at Ludlow in October and can make a triumphant return to the Shropshire track on Sunday.

Trainer Paul Webber sent the seven-year-old on a winter trip to St Moritz, where he won the first of two starts on the snow at the Swiss track.

After being given time to recover from those unique exertions, New Agenda ran well for a long way in a 10-furlong handicap on the Flat at Windsor two weeks ago.

He should be razor sharp for switching back to the smaller obstacles in the Scott & Newman Centenary Amora Handicap Hurdle at a place where he thrives.

Admiral's Secret can put his best foot forward in the Scott & Newman Centenary Maris Piper Handicap Chase.

Victor Dartnall's charge refused to race at Haydock in January and then fell at the third-last fence on his next outing at Wincanton when travelling smoothly and holding every chance.

However, he got round on his latest outing which took him to third place in a five-runner contest at Newbury.

Admiral's Secret usually runs well when returning from a break and he looks the answer to this two-mile heat.

The lightly-raced Melekhov looks the answer to the Racing Excellence Series Finale for the Mayfield Sussex Hop Gin Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle at Plumpton.

At the age of five, Melekhov has had just the six career starts but has shown tremendous consistency with three wins, two second places and a fourth.

Trainer Philip Hobbs will not have got to the bottom of him yet and Melekhov should certainly make his presence felt at the Sussex venue.

Zamperini shaped well on his debut over jumps at Wincanton in January and can put that experience to good use in the That Friday-Ad-Feeling Maiden Hurdle.

The seven-year-old, trained by Gary Moore, is fit from three runs since then on the Flat, in which he was not beaten far in any of them.

Goodthyneaway should appreciate a drop back in trip for the Brewers Decorator Centre Cup Handicap Chase.

He was tried over an extended two miles and six furlongs last time out, but faded into third with the extra distance and rise in the weights both going against him.

The handicapper has not relented since that effort last week, but Goodthyneaway did not lose too much in defeat and can make a swift return pay dividends.

Leopardstown hosts the Derrrinstown Stud Derby Trial and Aidan O'Brien looks to have a likely winner again in Broome.

O'Brien will be bidding for a 12th success in this 10-furlong heat, with Broome already having won over the course and distance in last month's Ballysax.

He triumphed by eight lengths that day, racing a little lazily in the early stages before really picking up to good effect.

O'Brien has his usual embarrassment of riches in the Derby and Broome can make sure his name is firmly in the Epsom reckoning here.
