SIR MARK PRESCOTT, the renowned past master at placing his runners, has found an excellent opportunity for ELYSEES PALACE (3.55, nap) to make it three wins on the bounce at Newcastle.
An easy winner over today’s course and distance 11 days ago, the gelding is paying the price with a 6lb penalty but his shrewd trainer has found a moderate contest for the five-year-old.
He beat Dommersen on that occasion and should confirm that running despite that rival now being 6lb better off.
Prescott and Luke Morris, his stable jockey, can make it a double at the track with MASTER DIVER (5.25).
The consistent CRACKING DESTINY (3.35, nb) can open his account over fences at Wincanton following his promising second behind Gone Platinum at Bangor earlier in the month.
This former Irish point-to-point winner has done nothing but improve since joining Ian Williams from Nicky Henderson’s Lambourn yard.
At Market Rasen IWILLDOIT (1.00, treble) can defy his 6lb penalty for his easy success at Bangor last week.
