Here's some more juicy detail on Planet Sport's picks from Sandown on Saturday, April 23.

13.50 Sandown - Doctor Parnassus

You won't need an Imaginarium to foresee a win for Doctor Parnassus in the bet365 Novices' Championship Final Handicap Hurdle.

Named after the Terry Gilliam fantasy movie, Doctor Parnassus put in a fantastic performance at Taunton in February, hosing up by nine lengths and looking a little special.

A seventh in the Triumph Hurdle was no disgrace and this is no Grade 1, meaning Dan Skelton's Doctor Parnassus can have a far better time of it at a good price.

15.00 Sandown - Nube Negra

Dan Skelton's popular Nube Negra can go well in the bet365 Celebration Chase.

A winner of the Shloer Chase at Cheltenham in November of last year, the Spanish bred was less impressive in the Tingle Creek but can bounce back here.

When running and jumping at speed, Nube Negra can be decent and Harry Skelton knows all there is to know about winning for his brother.

15.32 Sandown - Win My Wings

Christian Williams has made these sort of staying chases his own, winning the Scottish Grand National with Win My Wings.

There's been plenty of talk about his Kitty's Light taking this one but Win My Wings is worth sticking with, particularly with useful amateur Rob James claiming a whopping seven pounds in the bet365 Gold Cup Handicap Chase.

Win My Wings is after a four timer and has won both the Eider and the Scottish National, so this is one serious stayer who can't be discounted.
