19:17 Oxford (Friday) - Union Rebel @ SP

It wasn't to be for Kevin Hutton's speedy youngster, UNION REBEL, in the Midlands Puppy Derby. After showing up well in the opening round, he crashed out in last week's semi-finals.

Switching back to Oxford, he will appreciate the longer run to the corner and has a great chance of getting back to winning ways from a decent draw.

Main danger will be kennelmate Bit View Philly on his outside in trap five, but that rival is drawn a little wider than ideal and will struggle to get around Union Rebel at the opening turn.

Whoever leads out of that duo will likely go on to score, but with the crucial inside line going into the bend it's Union Rebel who is a strong pick.

Dave Clark's Tip:

Union Rebel @ SP

19:33 Oxford (Friday) - Tuono Bella @ SP

Paul Donovan's staying star TUONO BELLA burst onto the scene during this year's Golden Jacket over 714m at Crayford and has now established herself as one of the top performers around over six bends.

The long run to the first turn will suit this speedy bitch, who wins her races by bagging the early lead.

The Central Park raider will need to be on her toes with Queen Mother Memorial Cup runner-up Hurry Up Jordan in opposition, a real powerhouse for Perry Barr trainer John Lambe.

However, he may get taken off his feet going into the opening turn and tapped for early dash, enabling Tuono Bella to slip clear and build an unassailable lead in her bet365 Hunt Cup heat.

Dave Clark's Tip:

Tuono Bella @ SP

20:18 Oxford (Friday) - Droopys Clue @ SP

Seamus Cahill's St Leger champion DROOPYS CLUE rightly heads the market for this year's bet365 Hunt Cup over 650m at Oxford and can get his campaign off to a winning start.

Lining up in the warmest of the first-round heats may mean the staying superstar is a backable price, especially with defending champion Havana Top Note in opposition and well drawn down the centre.

The long run to the corner suits Droopys Clue who has fine early dash to go with his ferocious middle pace. He can defend the inside early on before drawing away and putting down a marker for the £10,000 event.
