Let's Go Amigo earning admirers 

The most competitive race on Huntingdon's card is the Class 5 handicap hurdle (4.10) and in what looks a fairly open contest and I want to take on the last-time-out winners with Kim Bailey's unexposed Let's Go Amigo

On his handicap debut last time he ran into some in-form horses, the first and third home coming home a close first and second in another handicap since, and ran well in the circumstances. 

He is related to the very useful Filey Bay and is also a full brother to Some Detail, who stays extremely well, so after getting outpaced over 2m3f last time, this step up to 3m1f should suit him well. 

There are a couple of last-time winners here in the shape of The Wise Traveller and The Skiffle King, but the races they won last time were uncompetitive and they are worth taking on.

Mount Ferns can climb to new heights

I think it's always worth taking on penalised runners in bumpers with likely newcomers and in the last at Huntingdon (4.45) there should be some value available with Oliver Sherwood's Mount Ferns

Sherwood has won this race before with a newcomer, and also had a runner-up in recent years so it's clearly a course he likes to introduce a decent recruit and this one fits the bill. 

He's owned by the Exors of the late Trevor Hemmings, who have a good record in bumpers themselves, and is related to two smart performers. 

Neither of those ran in bumpers but his dam won one and was narrowly beaten in two other bumpers, and he's by Mount Nelson who is a very good source of bumper winners.

Get Prepared ready to go

The prospect of some give on the ground has ensured large fields at Ffos Las, with plenty of action to get stuck into and the one that catches my eye as being still well handicapped is Ben Pauling's Get Prepared in the 3m handicap chase (3.55). 

A point-to-point winner, he hasn't had many starts for an 8yo, and after a reasonable hurdling career he has gone chasing this season and looks to have more to offer in this sphere. 

A solid comeback/chase debut on Boxing Day was followed by an unseat as favourite, but he jumped well on his latest start where he was unable to keep tabs on a well-handicapped winner who has since gone in again even more comfortably off 6lb higher. 

With all ground coming alike to Pauling's charge, the trainer will hope to enhance his impressive 31% success rate at the course.

Brianna Rose set to bloom

It's also worth having an ew dart at Martin Keighley's Brianna Rose in the 2m4f handicap hurdle (4.30) on her second run back after an absence. 

She fell heavily and was injured (broke an elbow bone) in Southwell last June and so it was no surprise that she was a bit rusty on her return at Fakenham a month ago. 

She showed enough to think she retains all her ability and she is certainly capable of going close on Sunday.
