14:00 (Exeter) Stratton Oakmont

Stratton Oakmont has been a model of consistency since joining Kayley Woollacott, posting a win at Southwell, three seconds and a third.

Ben Godfrey has been in the saddle for all bar one of those runs and the duo can again be there or thereabouts in the ‘Three Miles’ Handicap Hurdle.


15:00 (Exeter) Raffle Ticket

Raffle Ticket can defy a 4lb rise and double up in the Unibet Middle Distance Series Veterans’ Handicap Chase.

Mel Rowley’s charge now sits on a career-high perch of 137 at the age of 10 due to a consistent series of runs over the last couple of years, turning in just one disappointing effort in all of his completed starts.

That lacklustre effort came at the start of the current campaign, but Raffle Ticket has not looked back since, being beaten just a head the next time at Taunton before triumphing by a similarly narrow distance at Doncaster in January.

His Town Moor success has prompted another uplift but moved to veterans’ level from open company, he could still have the required extra to prevail here.


16:00 (Exeter) Desert Fortune

Desert Fortune kept on well when runner-up to hot favourite Bobbi’s Beauty at Leicester on her debut for Venetia Williams after a lengthy break and should now be spot on for the Join RacingTV Today Handicap Chase.

Lightonthewing scored contesting a 3m1f handicap chase in this grade at Wincanton and also has a big chance.

River Tyne showed ability at Plumpton two weeks back running second in a 3m2f handicap chase attempting this level and that form has worked out well so she makes for appeal.


16:30 (Exeter) Grand Roi

Grand Roi is a former Grade 2 winner. The eight-year-old has been running well in hunter chases this season including a strong second attempting a 2m5f novices hunters chase at Stratford last week, so will be a leading contender set to go one place better.

The main danger will come from Forest Chimes who found success in the same race last Monday at Stratford.

My Reprieve showed ability at Taunton managing a good third tackling a 2m7f hunters chase and will be in the mix along with Earl Of Desmond.
