Here's some more juicy details on Planet Sport's three main picks from Warwick.

15.30 Warwick - Sofia's Rock

Dan Skelton does very well round his local track Warwick and Sofia's Rock can take the Coronation Handicap Hurdle.

A distance winner last time out at Ludlow earlier this month, the eight-year-old attacked the race with aplomb under Harry Skelton and won by an easy nine lengths.

A seven pounds penalty is offset by amateur Tristan Durrell taking off the same number of pounds and Sofia's Rock will be hard to move in this one.

17.10 Warwick - Joke Dancer

Sue Smith's Joke Dancer can raise a smile in the Wigley Group Carnival Handicap Chase.

A previous course and distance winner, Jokes Dancer has run in lofty Graded company in the past and made light work of a chase at Kelso last time out, winning by a full 10 lengths in Scotland.

Top jockey Brian Hughes gets the leg up and Joke Dancer's chances here are no laughing matter.

17.45 Warwick- Hillview

Gary Hanmer's ultra consistent Hillview can roll over the field in the Logicor Warwickshire Handicap Hurdle.

Possessing a bit of quality at this Class 4 level, the six-year-old is hunting a hat-trick after back-to-back wins at Southwell.

The last win came at a total of 18 lengths over three miles, two furlongs and this one should have the stamina and speed to win.
