DOUBLE: Module and O O Seven
Module can spring a relative surprise by lifting the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup at Cheltenham.
Tom George's runner is trading at double-figure odds but on the very pick of his form, he is thrown in in this Grade Three event.
Two years ago he was riding high on a mark of 164 having won a Game Spirit and as well as claiming a fine third behind a dominant Sire De Grugy in the Champion Chase at the Festival.
However, the wheels slightly came off during the 2014-15 season, turning in three so-so efforts in fine company before being sidelined for 18 months by injury.
Returned to action in Grade Two company, Module ran well for a long way in the Shloer Chase at the Open meeting last month, shrugging off a mistake at the first before just being found out against some sharper rivals.
He was beaten 22 lengths by Fox Norton that day and the handicapper has duly dropped him to a mark of 149, which looks very enticing indeed.
Module's last run in handicap company came in the 2013 Haldon Gold Cup, when he was beaten just a head by the admirable Somersby off a perch of 152, and his current situation really does appeal.

The two-and-a-half-mile trip could well suit him better now than in his younger days and George has always insisted he does not need testing ground to be at his best.
A small saver on Kylemore Lough could also prove a good shout as he shaped with oodles of promise on his Ascot return, but has plenty of weight to shoulder here.
My Tent Or Yours disappointed on his reappearance at Haydock but can get back on the right track in the stanjames.com International Hurdle.
Nicky Henderson's runner famously came back from two years on the sidelines with a cracking second in last season's Champion Hurdle before filling the same position behind Annie Power again at Aintree.
The nine-year-old then rolled on to Punchestown where Vroum Vroum Mag was too sharp, but many expected him to score his first win in the best part of three years on Merseyside last time.
However, My Tent Or Yours trailed home third behind Ch'Tibello that day, raising plenty of question marks about what route he should take now.
It should pay to keep the faith though as the heavy ground at Haydock that day probably did not play to his strengths on his return from a break and Henderson has made no secret of the fact it was a thoroughly unsatisfactory affair all round.
This Grade Two looks an ideal opportunity to get back on the right track.
Defi Du Seuil impressed at last month's Open meeting with a hard-held Grade Two victory and he can add to his laurels in the JCB Triumph Trial Juvenile Hurdle.
He was claiming a second victory over hurdles that day after previously scoring at Ffos Las and barely had to come out of second gear to land the odds.
Philip Hobbs' runner must shoulder a penalty here but even the extra weight cannot dampen enthusiasm for this classy performer.
Cliffs Of Dover is taken to continue his remarkable winning spree in the Grade Two bet365 Summit Juvenile Hurdle at Doncaster.
A modest performer on the Flat, the three-year-old has improved beyond all recognition for jumping obstacles, winning five of his six starts.
He bolted up in Listed company at Wetherby last time and should prove very difficult to beat.
The Henderson-trained O O Seven can claim the other Grade Two prize on Town Moor, the bet365 December Novices' Chase.
He looked a natural in winning by 10 lengths at Cheltenham last month, barely touching a twig in the process, and he is expected to follow up.
Riot Act should go well in the J A Rattigan Plant & Rattigan Utilities Novices' Hurdle at Lingfield.
Nonios can defy a career-high mark in the Betway Handicap at Wolverhampton.
David Simcock's four-year-old has been making plenty of progress in recent weeks, most recently winning another handicap event at Dunstall Park off a mark of 77.
That was his first career victory after some fine placed efforts and raised to a perch of 84, he can go on again.
Steel Train caught the eye when an unlucky third last time and compensation awaits in the pinnacleracing.co.uk Handicap at Newcastle.
A winner at Doncaster in November, he was racing off a 7lb higher mark in Essex but when he really needed to find a bit of racing room, all doors were closed on him.
He eventually got a gap in the final furlong but despite finishing with a flourish, he just could not get there. He can make amends here.
