DIVE into the Zambezi on Sandown’s wonderful Tingle Creek card.

ZAMBEZI FIX (3.35) is set to line up in the Listed handicap hurdle, the last race on the card, and it should be worth the wait.

He would’ve bolted up over fences at Ffos Las on his return to action if he hadn’t fallen three from home. That was far from his first error so it just goes to show how big the engine is under his bonnet.

The switch to hurdles is in his favour and some of his form when trained in Ireland by Gordon Elliott also makes Bernard Llewellyn’s hope well weighted. Have 3pts each-way at 12-1.

KISSESFORKATIE (12.40) has sound claims earlier on the card.

She was unlucky on her second start of last season when wiped out by a loose horse at Wincanton in November.

Jeremy Scott’s mare wasn’t seen again until finishing sixth at Lingfield last month when the slow pace was all against her.

She will improve a stack for her return to action and she will get a much faster early gallop this.

Have 1pt each-way at 9-1 with several bookies paying out on four places.

It’s three years since RED INFANTRY (3.00) finished runner-up in the Betfair London National and he’s back to have another crack.

He went well on his comeback run at Warwick when he helped set a strong pace. The decent ground and longer distance should be ideal for Ian William’s well-treated stayer.

The cheekpieces he usually wears have been swapped for a visor and he’s got a good record in the different headgear. Have 1pt each-way at 10-1 with Sky Bet and William Hill paying out on four places.

There’s also a cracking card at Aintree, where BALLYANDY goes on a recovery mission (3.15).

Some might think he’s gone at the game after two disappointing runs this season but don’t let that put you off. Those efforts came on good ground and he’s way better on today’s soft surface.

This time last year he finished a close third in Cheltenham’s Grade 2 International Hurdle and he’s really well handicapped now.

Young jockey Finn Lambert takes off another 10lb and I was impressed with him when he rode his first winner recently. Have 2pts each-way at 20-1.
