Something Dandy merits an interest in the Skylark Novices' Hurdle at Taunton tomorrow.

Jim Old's seven-year-old has not been seen out since May when he showed improved form to finish an 11-length second to Wild Spice over three and a quarter miles at Hereford.

He followed that effort by filling the same position, beaten eight lengths, behind Nadisha at Aintree.

That latest run was over two and a half miles and the son of Brush Aside gave the impression he would be suited by a return to further having been found wanting for pace in the closing stages.

Something Dandy steps back up to an extended three miles tomorrow and he can open his account over timber.

Useful Flat stayer Tensile got off the mark over hurdles at Leicester last year for James Fanshawe, scoring in good style by five lengths from Court Shareef.

The five-year-old gelding is now with champion jumps trainer Martin Pipe and he can confirm the favourable impression he created last term with victory in the Corfe Amateur Riders' Handicap Hurdle despite the steadier of 12st.

At Ludlow Khatani can make the successful transition from hurdles to fences in the Racing Channel Available On Telewest Novices' Chase.

The David Gandolfo-trained five-year-old took well to timber winning five in a row before finishing fourth, beaten eight and a half lengths behind the smart Run For Paddy at Cheltenham last month.

Khatani, a good jumper of hurdles, has the build to make a chaser and can get his new career off to the perfect start tomorrow.

On the equitrack at Lingfield, Secret Spring has bundles of class and should prove too good for his rivals in the Book A Box Now Apprentice Handicap.

And Eventuality, who goes well fresh, has speed to burn which should stand her in good stead for her division of the Ladbroke All-Weather Trophy Handicap.
