It’s been a huge weekend of racing in Scotland with the Ayr Scottish Grand National meeting.
And now we’re building up to the big one at Aintree next weekend but there’s plenty more action before then.
Our man Garry Owen brings you his tips every day from all the UK meetings and hopes to end your weekend on a high with his selections from the action on both sides of the Irish Sea.
HIT THE ROCKS (2.30) can sink his rivals in the tricky Global Herbs Handicap Hurdle at Plumpton.
Gary Moore’s gelding hit back when second to the promising Sword Beach over two miles here.
The gelding was staying-on strongly so he can triumph for a trainer who excels at this venue.
The Sussex Maestro can double-up with gleno (3.05) in the staying handicap chase.
The 10-year-old was unlucky to meet the in-form Kansas City Chief over timber here recently.
That is terrific form so the gelding can take advantage of an attractive mark back over fences.
Emma Lavelle has hit form so I’m backing SILENT ASSIST (4.50) in the handicap chase.
The gelding ran well for a long way when second to the thriving Galtee Mountain at Fontwell.
The eight-year-old should be primed so he can go one better in this less competitive event.
WIGGLESWORTH (1.00) can continue Dr Richard Newland’s tremendous run at Hereford.
The gelding put in a career best over fences when second to Powerful Position at Sedgefield.
The seven-year-old is open to progress as a stayer so he can claim a slightly weaker contest.
The shrewd handler can also bag the handicap chase with new recruit CAPTAIN COBAJAY (3.20).
SURE-TOUCH (1.35) can claim a fascinating maiden hurdle for in-form Olly Murphy.
The gelding can deny some promising rivals with a repeat of his second to Post Chaise here.
Tom Lacey is also flying so NEVILLE’S CROSS (2.10) can shade a trappy novices’ chase.
The gelding stayed on the rise over fences when chinned by the useful Torigni at Leicester.
The seven-year-old looks unexposed over 2m 4f so he can see off a strong field after a break.
MALIBOO (2.45) can extend her excellent run for Neil Mullholland in the mares’ hurdle.
The nine-year-old was better than ever when slamming Alpha Carinae over fences at Wincanton.
The daughter of Mahler still lurks on an inviting timber mark so she can follow up in a fair event.
Evan Williams remains in decent form so I’m picking PETERBOROUGH (3.55) in the two-miler.
The gelding looks fairly-treated over hurdles after bolting up in a strong chase at Kelso.
