Pacify is on a roll and can chalk up his fifth win on the bounce in the Matchbook Time To Move Over Novices' Hurdle at Kempton.

Trained by Ralph Beckett on the Flat, he has made a seamless switch to obstacles since joining Jamie Snowden's team in Lambourn.

A narrow winner on his first attempt at Southwell back in June, Pacify has gone from strength to strength - adding another triumph at Uttoxeter before breezing home by 30 lengths at Newton Abbot in August.

He then rolled on to Stratford last month, winning by eight lengths when giving upwards of 7lb to each of his rivals.

The second tried to make a decent fight of it that day, but Pacify was just too good and eventually scored comfortably again.

Snowden raises his sights to Listed level on Sunday - and while Pacify's mark of 140 is certainly not to be sneezed at, he could reach even loftier heights in due course.

Silver Streak endured a frustrating campaign of near-misses after winning on his debut last term, but he can get a win on the board in the Matchbook VIP Hurdle.

Evan Williams' charge won the Welsh Champion Hurdle first time up, but then had to settle for second in the Greatwood Hurdle as well as two Champion Hurdle trials.

He posted an excellent third in the main event itself at the Festival, but the ground at Aintree went totally against him on his final start of the year.

Better ground is expected here, and the conditions of the race firmly put him in the driving seat.

Oleg can strike for Paul Nicholls in the Matchbook Betting Podcast Novices' Handicap Chase.

This French import won one of his two hurdles outings last year, and made a successful switch to the bigger obstacles when triumphing at Wincanton earlier this month.

He jumped well and took full advantage of his weight-for-age allowance to win by a cosy two and a quarter lengths over just short of two miles.

Oleg looked sure to appreciate a longer trip in the process of that victory, so the switch to two and a quarter miles here is another positive.

Scoop The Pot is the pick in the Sedgefielders Salute Rubstic Durham National Handicap Chase at Sedgefield.

He has shown a liking for easy ground and longer trips in the past, but has not really shone in three starts so far this term.

The nine-year-old has dropped a few pounds in the ratings of late - and while he may still be high enough, he could still put up a good show here.

Windsor Avenue can make a splash in the Sky Sports Racing Virgin 535 Beginners' Chase.

Grade Two-placed over hurdles on his final start of the last campaign, Windsor Avenue was a point-to-point winner before joining Brian Ellison, so fences should hold no fears for him.
