One bet on the card at Nantes in the concluding chase (2.52pm), where Rock The Kasbah looks a generous 2-1 to bounce back to winning ways.

Though he is well into the veteran stage, he is faced with a very moderate bunch of rivals today and is sure to appreciate being back over fences and over a longer trip after a couple of spins over hurdles in France in March.

The form of the first of those is head and shoulders above the calibre of the opposition today and with the form of Tom George’s French team (managed by his son Noel) a big positive, he is worth siding with.

2.52pm – 2pts win Rock The Kasbah (2-1 all firms)
