Tom Cannon has three rides today at Doncaster.

Jumping mistakes figured in all three starts over fences; best of those shows was latest.

Owner - Rupert Anton - Trainer - Alan King

Betterforeveryone has shown a liking for Doncaster and, having finished runner-up there last time, he was denied the chance to go one better when their meeting two weeks ago was a victim of the weather.

However, Betterforeveryone will be heading back up the A1 for the three-mile chase. A visor last time seemed to help, so Alan keeps the headgear on again here.

Useful on the Flat and has shown plenty of promise on both hurdle starts; leading player.

Owners - Dodds-Smith, Farrell, Hodgson & Coupland - Trainer - Alan King.

The more the ground dries out the better Paradias’s chance on Town Moor, and significantly, Alan has opted to send this useful Flat-racer north, where he has to shoulder a penalty, rather than take on hotter opposition in the Dovecote Hurdle at Kempton on Saturday.

Alan, who has always rated Paradias highly, said:”If he is going to one of the spring Festivals it will be Aintree not Cheltenham. Paradias is a juvenile hurdler with plenty of speed, and, having won with plenty in hand at Lingfield on his jumps debut he then lost nothing in defeat when beaten by Supreme Hurdle hope Jeriko du Reponet at Newbury. He seems in very good form and this race should sharpen him up for Liverpool.

C&D fourth of 18 (good to soft) six weeks ago, probably strong form and he should improve.

Owners - The M Team - Trainer - Toby Lawes.
