The jumps are back at Cheltenham and it's the final Group 1 of the season at Donny.

Not a bad weekend by all accounts and there are some brilliant betting opportunities.

I backed one in the Vertem Futurity and one at Jumps HQ earlier in the week.

I won't waste your time repeating myself, but I'm all over WEMBLEY (2.55 Doncaster) and reckon I'D BETTER GO NOW (3.15 Cheltenham) has a good chance. You can read my thinking here.

There are a couple others I'll be having a punt on. Let's start at Cheltenham, and in the opening race ANNA BUNINA (2.05 Cheltenham) can land the spoils.

She takes on some classy opponents here, in the form of Allmankind, Botox Has and Strategem.

But there also looks to be bundles of pace in here, so the fact she has a fitness edge over several of these could play into her hands.

She gets her preferred ground conditions and being the only filly in the line-up she gets a handy weight allowance from the boys.

The form of her second in a hot handicap at Listowel is rock-solid and the booking of Richard Johnson catches the eye.

Up at Donny, JUMBY (3.30 Doncaster) can take advantage of a drop in class.

He created a big impression when winning on debut at Ascot back in July, after which trainer Eve Johnson Houghton revealed the high regard in which he is held.

He followed that victory up with a solid run in Listed company at Newbury, finishing two lengths behind the winner Saint Lawrence.

And his recent third back there in a high-class conditions race caught the eye as he travelled the best and was perhaps just stretched by a mile.

The horse just ahead of him Megallan has since run well in Group company and is not without a squeak in the Vertem Futurity.

Jumby is back in trip and could prove a cut above these.
