Henderson hope can lord it over rivals

Call Me Lord: goes well at Sandown
1 of 1

Lambourn: James Burn

Call Me Lord (4.05 Sandown, nap)

Smart five-year-old who loves this track and trip is worth a try. Ground should be fine and he can cap a fine season for champion trainer Nicky Henderson.

North: Colin Russell

Rayna's World (3.20 Leicester, nap)
Progressive three-year-old who won in good style on soft ground at Yarmouth last season. Sound run when second at Doncaster on reappearance and fancied to go one better.

West Country: Tim Mitchell

The Young Master (3.35 Sandown, nap)
Winless since this race in 2016 but shaped encouragingly at the festival and spared a hard race when fancied in the Scottish National. A bold bid is expected as connections feel he has a decent chance off his current mark.
Others to follow 
Sandown 1.50 Mont Des Avaloirs, 2.25 Art Maresque, 4.05Old Guard, 4.40 Solighoster, 5.15 Zubayr.

Newmarket: David Milnes

West Wing (8.00 Wolverhampton, nap) 
John Gosden's chestnut has run two solid efforts in maidens on the all-weather of late and is expected to make it third time lucky from a decent draw. The three-year-old has worked nicely on the Al Bahathri of late.

Racing Post Ratings: Simon Turner

King's Proctor (3.20 Leicester)
Bumped into one on first start of the year but back in calmer waters here. Fairly treated on last year's success and can get back to winning ways.

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

Diakali (4.05 Sandown)
Has had his share of problems and is entitled to improve for his recent Aintree spin. At his best he could spring a surprise.

Longshot: Ed Quigley

Rock The Kasbah (3.35 Sandown)

Things didn't go to plan last time out, but ran well in this last year and the yard are coming back into form.

Ireland: Tony O'Hehir

Farclas (4.25 Punchestown)

Progressed on third start over hurdles to land the JCB Triumph Hurdle for Gordon Elliott at Cheltenham last month. Further improvement is on the cards and he gets the vote to secure a second Grade 1 success, with Jack Kennedy again on board.

The Raceform Interactive nugget

The very lightly raced Emmaus is 2-2 at Leicester and also under Andrea Atzeni. He can make the step up in class by taking the Listed event at 2.45.
