Sunday racing tips: All you need for the feature Sloane Helicopters Handicap Chase at Warwick on Sunday

THE Cheltenham Festival is just around the corner.

So we have taken a good look at the Sloane Helicopters Handicap Chase (3.35) at Warwick in an attempt to line the coffers going into next week.

Belle Empress caught the eye when a never-nearer third in the Devon National last time out.

She was perhaps given too much to do on that occasion and this 3m5f trip will suit her down to the ground.

Alminar stayed on powerfully to win in the mud under this rider at Chepstow in January. He commands respect up class and distance.

Hat-trick seeker Echo Watt and the newly blinkered Fleminport are also worth close consideration.

But it could pay to side with Henry Daly's SPIDER'S BITE, who has undergone a wind op since his last start.

He barely lifted a leg when last-sighted at Doncaster in December, and connections clearly felt he had trouble with his breathing there.

That turned out to be a strong race for the grade – indeed he has run in stronger company than this on each of his three starts this season.

As a result he has slipped to a very dangerous mark. Now freshened up, he is fancied to bounce back with Richard Johnson in the plate.
