ALAN has three selections as he looks to make it a fantastic Friday.
MILLIE THE MINX landed some tasty wagers at Sedgefield 10 days ago and is fancied to defy a fixed penalty on a return visit under Danny McMenamin. Dianne Sayer’s filly has plenty of course form and could be an improving filly.
DARLAC drops slightly in class after his fourth to Coolonly at Cheltenham’s big November fixture. Colin Tizzard’s five-year-old had previously romped home by 17 lengths at Fontwell.
ZARRAR powered clear for a seven lengths victory on his last visit to Kempton eight days ago and will win again under a penalty if that wasn’t a flash in the pan. Brendan Powell’s stable was struck down by a virus last season and as a consequence he has some well-handicapped horses with which to go to war. Zarrar could be a case in point.
