IRISH raider Now This is It looks the answer to the 3.55pm Beginners Chase at Cartmel's Bank Holiday Monday meeting.

The Accordian gelding is a 138-rated hurdler who will have the assistance of top jockey A P McCoy and he looks a worthy favourite.

The Crawford stable does well on its raids to the Lake District course and McCoy's charge should be capable of seeing off fellow Irish challenger Carpenter, who was third in a Punchestown handicap chase and had fair form with Jessica Harrington.

Fine Lace comes with sound credentials for the opening 2.10 selling hurdle for Welsh handler Evan Williams.

Charlie Mann's raiders from Upper Lambourn to the track are rare and always worth noting and Not in the Clock gets the vote over Dashing Doc in a race which looks between these two.

Executive's Hall showed improved form to win at Hexham for his new trainer Ben Haslam and the Saddler's Hall gelding looks capable of defying a 7lb penalty.
