Tote Placepot: Paul Kealy tackles the Devon National card at Exeter
Exeter is the destination for the Placepot perm and Striking A Pose (12.30) should get us through the first leg.
Although Colin Tizzard still hasn't found top form this season, Striking A Pose would likely have to run a long way below his best not to finish in the first three and likely market rival Little Awkward's trainer is arguably in worse form.
The favourite is going to be hard to boot out of the frame in the next (1.00) as well as Volkovka, third in a mares' Listed race at Doncaster last time, boasts form in a different league to her rivals.
The next (2.00) is tough but Shantou Sunset has run to form pretty much every time he has completed this term and isn't badly treated, while the lightly raced Elmdale shaped like he would appreciate going back up to 3m at Chepstow last time.
