Nicholls hotpots chasing success at Exeter
BIG BUCK'S, arguably jump racing's biggest name, will work before racing at Exeter where trainer Paul Nicholls will be hoping to come away with a couple of winners from his runners.
Nicholls runs Provo and Keppols Hill in the novice hurdle and novice chase and both are forecast favourites.
Provo surprised Nicholls when successful at Wincanton last month, while the champion trainer described Keppols Hill as an "interesting prospect" in a Monday's Racing Post Stable Tour.
Nicholls' third runner at the track is Five Dream, who spent most of last season chasing home the brilliant Big Buck's. He will be partnered by Ruby Walsh when he gallops with stablemate Cedre Bleu at 1.10pm.
Bangor also stages jump racing in Britain, while the action in Ireland comes from Downpatrick. Flat fans can get their fix from the all-weather meetings at Southwell and Kempton.
Exeter soft over hurdles, good to soft, soft in places on chase course
Bangor good to soft
Downpatrick soft, heavy in places
