THIS is the third of a series of four posts where I'm sharing my notes from an excellent preview night that I was honoured to be a part of on Wednesday.

If you missed Day One or Day Two's pointers you'll find them here and here. Read on for all the experts views on Day Three….

The JLT Novices’ Chase – Thursday 1.30pm

Frank – made a compelling case for Terrefort (6-1 BetBright) along with Beefy and myself, pointing out his form tied in with Pendil winner Cyrname. Softer the better.

Joe Punter – Flagged up Tom Malone’s belief Modus (13-2 BetBright) could be the horse for this after an ‘interesting’ campaign.

Turner – Ridiculed Finians Oscar (6-1 BetBright) at the price of 8/1, even though his three bad runs came when Tizzard was stinking. Cheekpieces added but that won’t be enough.

Benetar (8-1 BetBright) was respected as a good horse but the layoff is a major concern.

The Pertemps Network Final – Thursday 2.10pm

Beefy – Louis Vac’pouch (9-1 BetBright) is interesting on the form of his Aintree win over Beer Goggles and Forza Milan. Philip Hobbs stable form a slight concern. Also agreed with myself that Forza Milan (14-1 BetBright) is a contender.

Joe Punter – Eagle Lion deserves consideration

Turner – Thomas Campbell deserves a second look, but likes Forza Milan

Frank – The Organist (14-1 BetBright) (who beat Forza Milan at Newbury) is interesting, has been campaigned with this in mind and is 2/2 over 3m. Also had a shout for Delta Work (16-1 BetBright), who has smart novice form tied in with Samcro, Sort it Out and Fabulous Saga.

The Ryanair Chase – Thursday 2.50pm

Myself – Don’t look further than Un De Sceaux.

Beefy – If the ground is good then Balko Des Flos is a player.

Robert – If Waiting Patiently is your idea of the winner if he runs, then Cue Card at 8/1 each way has to be the logical bet.

Ruth Jefferson thinks Cloudy Dream has a good each-way chance on good ground.

Alex Farquhar – Ar Mad is a big price at 40/1

Sun Bets Stayers Hurdle – Thursday 3.30pm

Joe Punter – Robbie Power is supremely confident in Supasundae (4-1 BetBright).

Beefy – Penhill (8-1 BetBright) is interesting especially if the money comes, while Unowhatimeanharry (12-1 BetBright) is overpriced.

Fraser Mackie (Daily Mail journalist) – Unowhatimeanharry was 6/4 going into this race last year and is now 12/1. Has been placed in 9 Grade Ones and has had that all important trip to the Martinstown Equine Health Spa (JP McManus’s ‘rest home’) to prepare him for this.

Lil Rockerfeller (22-1 BetBright) was mentioned as a horse overlooked despite his great run last year and shouldn’t be 25/1.

L’Ami Serge (11-1 BetBright) was roundly ridiculed for being a softie.

Turner – Max’s The World’s End (20-1 BetBright) will like better ground, thinks he would have beat Penhill in last year’s Albert Bartlett. The horse is now 18kg lighter than he was on Trials Day at Cheltenham and this race has been the only target all season.

The Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate – Thursday 4.10pm

Joe Punter – Don’t believe the hype about Kings Socks (9-1 BetBright).

Tully East (14-1 BetBright), Romain De Senam (14-1 BetBright), The Storyteller (10-1 BetBright) and Mr Whittaker (14-1 BetBright) all mentioned

The Trull House Stud Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle – Thursday 4.50pm

Willie Mullins wins with Laurina (8-11 BetBright) but if you are desperate to have a bet against her, back Countister (8-1 BetBright) each-way or without.

The Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup Handicap Chase – Thursday 5.30pm

Turner – Pendra (14-1 BetBright), also fresh from a trip to Martinstown, is apparently better than ever after an injury lay-off and has been lined up for this race for a while.

Alex F – Aubusson at 33/1 is a big price, Nick Williams’s excellent handicap form has to be respected and is now miles below his old rating.
