13:00 (Worcester) The Vollan

13:30 (Worcester) Cardboard Gangster

14:00 (Worcester) Carrigeen Kampala

14:30 (Worcester) Festive Glory

15:00 (Worcester) Hurricane Ali

15:30 (Worcester) Sheila Nash

16:00 (Worcester) The Turtle Said

14:00 (Worcester) Carrigeen Kampala

Fergal O'Brien's Carrigeen Kampala could be the answer to the Cazoo Mares' Open National Hunt Flat Race.

The four-year old daughter of Mahler downed a previous winner who is yet to finish outside the first two in four outings when making a winning debut at Newton Abbot, and considering the stable's tremendous record in bumpers, can follow up here under a penalty.

15:00 (Worcester) Hurricane Ali

John Mackie's Hurricane Ali can regain the winning thread and restart his upwards trajectory in the Weatherbys nhstallions.co.uk Handicap Hurdle.

Having won at Haydock, Bangor and Aintree in the space of four starts, he was not disgraced off his current rating when third at Cartmel in June. He was also running a fine race of this figure in a competitive heat at Market Rasen last time, where his finishing position of eighth does not tell the full tale.

The six-year-old was badly hampered approaching the last on that occasion and with a clearer passage this time around, could defy this career-high mark in what appears a winnable contest at a track that should suit.

15:30 (Worcester) Sheila Nash

Sheila Nash can earn supporters plenty of cash when she bids for a hat-trick in the Cazoo Mares' Handicap Hurdle.

A winner over course and distance the last twice, she won with any amount in hand when cruising to a five-length success here last week.

She is quickly turned out under a 7lb penalty as she attempts to bring up a rapid three-timer, but a speedy return and that extra weight to carry may not be too much of a burden for Harry Whittington's thriving seven-year-old.
