Kimberlite set for River Don
Tom Lacey's Kimberlite Candy could bid to extended his unbeaten run in the Albert Bartlett River Don Novices' Hurdle at Doncaster on Saturday.

The five-year-old also has the option of going to Cheltenham for a Grade Two over an extended two and a half miles, but Lacey would have no qualms about running him over three miles on Town Moor.
Having won a point-to-point last April, he also has a maiden hurdle and a novice event to his name this season.
"I'm not leaning one way or the other," said Lacey.
"It might come down to ground and who goes where. The trip wouldn't bother me, it was nearly three miles at Newcastle.
"He's just a lovely horse, so we'll have to see what happens through the week."
Give Me A Copper, who was so impressive on his debut for Paul Nicholls, is also among the 19 entries.
Talked of as a potential Gold Cup horse by former connections, he bolted up by 14 lengths at Exeter.
Ami Desbois has shown a high level of form for Graeme McPherson and sets the standard on his third place in the Challow Hurdle.
Happy Diva, Constantine Bay, Strong Pursuit and Wholestone, another with the Cheltenham option, are also in the mix.
