Next week Punchestown will take center stage later this month and our man Garry Owen brings you his tips from all the UK meetings every day.
LADRONNE (2.40) can do the business for shrewd Tjade Collier in the Highland National at Perth.
The chaser produced a career best when cosily defeating the useful Just Don’t Know at Newcastle.
The gelding was staying-on strongly so he can defy a well-deserved 7lb hike over this marathon trip.
Gordon Elliott’s PLATINUMCARD (2.05) is hard to oppose in the William Hill Hurdle.
The gelding is open to plenty of progress for his new yard after routing the talented Soft Risk at Ayr.
GERYVILLE (3.15) can shade a red-hot novices’ chase for thriving Micky Hammond.
The six-year-old built on some encouraging efforts when outpointing The Ferry Master at Newcastle.
That is excellent form so this smart type can stay on the upgrade against some promising opponents.
THE JAD FACTOR (4.18) can summarize winning ways for Ayrshire Ace Mike Smith.
KORKER (1.20) can live up to his name for in-form Karl Burke in the Bet365 Handicap at Sandown.
The sprinter ended a highly productive juvenile campaign with a superb second to Josies Kid at York.
The gelding should be even better at three so he can dish out weight and a beating to a decent field.
The Esher Cup looks as competitive as ever but I’m siding with Charlie Hills’ WANEES (1.50).
The son of La Harve improved again when decisively denying Zulu Tracker
at Salisbury in September.
The colt rates a sure-fire improver over a mile so he can claim this valuable prize on his comeback.
MOSTAHDAF (2.25) can land the Gordon Richards Stakes with the minimum of fuss.
John Gosden’s star is nicely unexposed over 1m 2f after slamming Bedouin’s Story at Newmarket.
ALCOHOL FREE (3.00) can make a winning return for Andrew Balding in the bet365 Mile.
The filly added two more Grade 1s to her CV last term so she should brush aside today’s rivals.
GOLDSPUR (3.35) can extend Charlie Appleby’s amazing run in the bet365 Classic Trial.
The colt signed off for 2021 with a terrific third to El Bodegon in Group 1 company at Saint-Cloud.
There is plenty more to come from this class act who can land this Group 3 on the faster surface.
