1.45 Sedgefield

In a race which should turn out to be a big shoot-out between the big three in the market, LIBBY MAE (best price 5/2) gets the vote on account of her affinity with today’s track. 3-3 at the Durham venue, Micky Hammond’s charge added a novice hurdle win to her previous two bumper victories in typically game fashion 68 days ago and with her proven stamina and sex allowance two notable positives, the daughter of High Chaparral can keep her local band of supporters in clover.

2.30 Punchestown

MALL DINI (best price 7/1) acquitted himself with great credit on his first outing in handicap company at Leopardstown last time out and there are plenty of reasons why he remains one to keep on side despite this being another tough assignment for this lightly-raced six-year-old. First of all, Patrick Kelly’s charge has already proven himself over this course with a notable effort behind the high-class Yorkhill earlier in the campaign and his subsequent victory over the useful Haymount also announced the son of Milan as a potentially decent stayer in the making. Sure to be more streetwise than he was on his previous outing against similar company, that valuable experienced he gained should stand him in good stead and he makes plenty of each-way appeal with four places on offer.

4.05 Punchestown

The form of the Paddy Power Chase run at Leopardstown is always worth following and having finished a creditable sixth in this year’s version, RIVERSIDE CITY (best price 4/1) looks set to keep that trend intact. That solid performance came off the back of a career-high effort when he landed the valuable Troytown Chase at Navan and, as stamina appears to be Gordon Elliot’s inmate’s strong suit, the demands of this potentially gruelling contest should prove ideal for the son of Presenting off his light weight.
