LUCA CUMANI'S Stylish Dancer can finally get her head in front in the Bet toteWIN At Handicap at Chelmsford today.

Like most of Nathaniel's offspring, stamina looks to be her forte and she has steadily improved the further she has gone.

She has only had five starts in her life so there is still scope for improvement and she has been placed in the last three of those.

Narrowly beaten over this trip of two miles on her penultimate outing at Lingfield, she was dropped two furlongs last time out.

She attempted to make all under Luke Morris but could only run on at one pace close home and finished third.

Back up to two miles and with Morris back on board, she looks sure to go close.

Ian Williams can do little wrong at present and his Paddy The Chef would not need to improve much on his debut effort to win the Bet toteexacta At Novice Auction Stakes.

Sent off at 100-1 last month at Kempton, he ran like those odds suggested for the first half of the race until the penny dropped and he flew home into fourth.

The first three were all from powerhouse yards and the third has a rating of 87 so, even with Paddy The Chef in receipt of 7lb, it looks a very good run.

One thing is for sure, unfortunately he will not be anything like 100-1 again.

Robinsfirth can continue his progression over fences with victory in the Unicoin Group Handicap Chase at Cheltenham.

Having finished fourth at Prestbury Park on his seasonal reappearance, Colin Tizzard's stayer was favourite for a not too dissimilar race to this at Haydock last month.

While he was no match for the impressive winner Chase The Spud, Robinsfirth was miles clear of the rest in second and a return to less demanding conditions than the bog he encountered on Merseyside might see him in a better light.

It could be a good day for the Dorset-based trainer, with Sizing Tennessee given another chance in the Horse Comes First Novices' Chase.

Although winless after seven starts over fences, the nine-year-old has run some fine races in defeat, notably placing behind Whisper and Black Corton.

He has blotted his copybook by falling and unseating his rider on his two most recent starts, but undoubtedly has the ability to win a race like this if he gets his jumping together.

Josies Orders can provide Enda Bolger with another cross-country success in the Glenfarclas Handicap Chase.

The nine-year-old suffered a narrow and expensive defeat over the banks at Punchestown last month, but can reward those who keep the faith by claiming this prize for a second time and winning at the track for a fourth time overall.

Things have not gone to plan for Lalor in the first half of the season but better ground will suit him in the British Stallion Studs EBF "National Hunt" Novices' Hurdle.

Winner of the Aintree bumper in April, he has met with defeat in his first two outings over timber but at Ascot most recently he looked sure to win, only to make a mess of the last and he did not have time to recover.

Nicky Henderson has won the Novices' Chase at Doncaster in each of the last two years with Volnay De Thaix and Might Bite respectively.

This year the Seven Barrows maestro sends Stowaway Magic to Town Moor and while he needs to raise his game after finishing second at Southwell on his fencing bow, there is every chance he will do just that.

At Bangor, Tawseef should give weight and a beating to his rivals in the Alfa Aggregate Products Golden Spurs Handicap Hurdle.
