Here is a quick list of Pete's picks from Warwick.

Greatest Star (12.40 Warwick)

Mint Condition (13.50 Warwick)

Viva Lavilla (14.25 Warwick)

Paddleyourowncanoe (15.00 Warwick)

Riggs (15.35 Warwick)

Luccia (16.05 Warwick)

13.50 Warwick - Mint Condition

Pete is keen on the Jenny Candlish trained Mint Condition in this Grade 2 at Warwick. A winner on his last start, Mint Condition prevailed just after Christmas and should go well in the Midlands.

Henry Brooke gets the leg up and here are a few reasons why Mint Condition is a clear chance at Warwick.

"Now in this race they are all trying to chase down and defeat the odds-on favourite Threeunderthrufive, and that's entirely understandable. Winner of course over at Doncaster of the December Novices' Chase, a hat-trick of victories this horse looks in more than fine fettle.

But Mint Condition was second in the Ballymore here at Warwick last year, likes this track, run really well in that one and with a win at Haydock last time around. I think could turn out to be way too big a price here. So Threeunderthrufive is the very clear and understandable favourite but I think Mint Condition may well get this favourite beaten towards the line."

12.40 Warwick - Greatest Star

Dan Skelton does very well at local track Warwick and it will be a surprise if he doesn't come away with a couple of winners.

Greatest Star is up at the top of the betting for good reason, a solid winner last time out at Southwell.

Harry Skelton takes the reins as expected, knowing this one inside out for his brother and should be there or thereabouts.

14.25 Warwick - Viva Lavilla

Another Skelton runner in good form, Vivalavilla runs in the distincitive Yates colours and hasnt finished out of the top two in any of his three career starts.

The six-year-old won at Lingfield, then finished second in a Grade 2 Sandown hurdle in December, which should put the gelding bang on for this.

The trip and conditions will suit and this villa could be safe as houses at Warwick.
