13.50 Download The AK Bets App Maiden Hurdle

DR EGGMAN has returned as a beaten favourite the last two times, but this is an excellent opportunity for the six-year-old to open his account in this sphere.

He sets a good standard and should be hard to beat in the opener for the Mullins/Townend combination. MONTY SEARLE only found one too good on his hurdle/stable debut when he finished second and is the backup option.

Tips: Dr Eggman, Monty Searle

14.20 GS Group Balnakeilly Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase

All six of these can be considered. However, BLUE D’ENFER looked the likely winner at Down Royal last month until he fell at the third last fence and could make amends with a clear round here.

TRAVAIL D’ORFEVRE always runs well and should again give a good account of himself, while Paul Nicholls’ IOUPY COLLONGES and recent Wetherby winner FINDTHETIME can also be shortlisted.

Tips: Bleu D’enfer, Travail D’Orfevre, Ioupy Collonges, Findthetime

14.55 British EBF Gold Castle ‘National Hunt’ Novices’ Hurdle (Listed)

LOUGHGLYNN won his first couple of starts over hurdles, including a Grade 2 race. He subsequently finished third in another Grade 2 race, and he should be tough to beat in this easier race for Mullins and Townend.

His main danger is SOUNDS RUSSIAN, who is actually rated 6Ib higher than him and should be fit after his seasonal return at Haydock. GREAT PEPPER has won two of his three starts under rules and could go well at a big price.

Tips: Loughglynn, Sounds Russian, Great Pepper

15.25 Robertson Homes Fair Maid Of Perth Mares’ Chase (Listed) 

Malina Girl is worthy of respect, but she’s up against quality opposition. INSTIT generally comes good at this time of year, with her form in April reading 212 from three starts.

She has placed numerous times in listed and graded events, and her defeat of Limerick Lace and Allegorie De Vassy in this month last year is a serious piece of form.

She should go close, although RIVIERE D’ETEL and Grade 1 winner APPLE AWAY cannot be taken lightly. They have the class to figure.

Tips: Instit, Riviere D’etel, Apple Away

15.55 Phil Nelson Capercaillie Handicap Chase

GUNSIGHT RIDGE should be suited to the return to two miles, and he is only a pound higher than when he scored at Aintree in 2022. He has plenty in his favour and should be competitive for the in-form Olly Murphy team.

FIGAROC has yet to win in five starts over fences, but it is surely only a matter of time before he does get his head in front. This is a significant drop in grade compared to his last couple of starts, and he should go well.

Tips: Gunsight Ridge, Figaroc

16.25 AK Bets Home Of Free Bets Mares’ Handicap Hurdle

SUNDAY SOLDIER has been on a roll of late, winning her last five starts and winning a touch more easily than the margin suggested last time out, as she idled late on. She’s probably still ahead of the handicapper, so she could complete the six-timer.

Of the remainder, SIMILAR STORY was second behind the former last time out, and she should have a lot more to come, so she’s feared most.

Tips: Sunday Soldier, Similar Story
