Here are Alan Alger's top tips to get you started...
Top pick: Zabeel Prince
A nice, easy start with just six runners in a Listed contest on Town Moor.
The five previous winners of this race were having their first start of the calendar year and had last been seen in public around autumn of the year before.
It’s only the two market leaders that conform with that stat, so let’s keep it simple.
Richard Hannon trained the winner of this contest last year and Tabarrak represents him here with a solid chance.
But ZABEEL PRINCE's win at York in a very competitive handicap back on 13 October is great form in the context of this race.
He can be forgiven his defeat at Ascot a week later when a combination of factors would not have suited him, and is a confident selection here.
Honourable mention: Tabarrak
Top pick: Just A Thought
We head to Berkshire for a limited handicap hurdle in that odd part of the National Hunt season between Cheltenham and Aintree, which has been extended to exactly a month this year.
This Mares' Finale has been won by a horse carrying less than 11st 5lb in all ten races since 2007, with no horse older than eight winning the race in that time.
The last four winners were reasonably well-fancied in the market, but we’ve also seen winning double-figure SPs four times in the last eight runnings.
JUST A THOUGHT has been knocking on the door in good races throughout the season and she may just get her head in front here at a nice price.

Top pick: Grey Britain
The Lincoln is the flagship race at the start of the Flat turf season.
It's always a tough race to call, but does have a significant number of strong trends which help to narrow down the field.
We need to focus on six-year-olds or younger carrying 9st 4lb or less, given both of those trends have a 100 per cent record over the last decade.
We haven’t had a winning favourite since 2010, with the average winning SP since then a generous 18/1.
GREY BRITAIN wintered in Dubai without success but, based on a Listed win at Newmarket about 10 months ago, has the ability to land this race off a favourable weight in the middle of the handicap.
Honourable mention: Chelsea Lad
Top pick: Virgilio
This race might provide Seeyouatmidnight with his qualifying run for the Grand National – horses must have run at least once during a season to enter the famous steeplechase – but I’m sure connections won’t want a hard race for their ten-year-old three weeks ahead of Aintree.
VIRGILIO has had a nice break since being pulled-up on his last start at Doncaster.
He’s won three decent chase races over the last couple of years and could be ready to win again over this 2m 4f trip.
