Watch out for the course specialist at Market Rasen tomorrow.

Cromwell, trained just across the road from the track by Michael Chapman, will be seeking his magnificent seventh course success in the Robert Peak Bookmakers Handicap Chase and is fancied to take all the beating.

A flop two outings ago at Sedgefield, Cromwell bounced back to form on familiar territory back here last week when he galloped home strongly to win by two and a half lengths from Carrick Troop over an extended three miles.

Although tomorrow's step down in distance is not exactly in his favour, Cromwell is selected to capitalise on his 'home' advantage and defy a 7lb penalty.

Billy Worthington, his regular jockey, again has the mount.

The 'Boxing Day Comes Next' Handicap Chase over three and a half miles puts the emphasis firmly on staying power and Leitrim Cottage, an out-and-out galloper, is napped to gain his first win of the season.

Adrian Maguire's mount failed by just a length to catch Kibby Bank over three miles at Warwick a fortnight ago.

Tomorrow's extra distance should see this proven stayer in his element, especially on a course where he has been successful in the past.

Vanishing Dancer should make a bold bid to follow-up his recent Wetherby win in the 'Try Sponsorship At Market Rasen' Juvenile Novices' Hurdle.

Trained at Norton by Allan Dickman, the three-year-old romped home an easy winner on his hurdling bow and looks capable of defying a penalty. Ger Ryan again has the mount.

At Wincanton, Glitter Isle should go well in the Silver Buck Handicap Chase.

Josh Gifford's ten-year-old is a pretty formidable competitor at this level and, sure to be all the better for his run on this course a fortnight ago, is fancied to return to form. Furthermore, he is a previous course and distance winner.

Marsh Marigold should not be overlooked in the Tote Quick Pick Handicap Hurdle.

The six-year-old struck winning form at Chepstow last week when scoring by two and a half lengths from Harcamone.

Over the same distance of two miles tomorrow, Marsh Marigold can shrug off a 6lb penalty.

In the Cerne Abbas 'National Hunt' Novices' Hurdle, Midnight Gunner can shoot his rivals down to size.

The six-year-old is overdue a winning turn and is fancied to step up on his recent Hereford outing, when he was lucklessly carried out by a loose horse approaching the final flight of hurdles.
