2.20 Fairyhouse: Tulpar has traded below 20% of his BSP in-running in all 5 runs under rules. Last time out he claimed his maiden win in a 2m4f handicap chase at Punchestown. Travelling prominently he took up the running before being headed on the run-in to get up by a nose having traded at 350.0 in-running. He only won by a nose and is now up 7lb for that win, but the pair was 29 lengths clear of the third horse; he currently trades around 7.20 for a back-to-lay.

2.30 Lingfield: Come On Dave returned to form last time out at Kempton when making the most of being drawn in stall 1 to finish second to Outrage over 5 furlongs. He started the race with a BSP of 24.55 and traded all the way down to 1.33 in-running, he set off at a furious pace and was clear until tiring in the last half furlong. He has again being drawn in stall 1 and should be quickly with Mossgo on outside keeping the pressure on; he currently trades around 9.0 for a back-to-lay.

2.40 Musselburgh: The return to better ground and back to hurdling could see Calin Du Brizais bounce back to form following two poor efforts on soft ground over fences. He races off just 106 on his return to hurdling and with claimer Ciaran Gethrings taking off a further 5lbs, it puts him on his last winning mark of 101. His in-running trading over hurdles has seen him trade below at least half his BSP in 6 of his 7 races; he currently trades around 12.0 for a back-to-lay.

3.35 Sandown: Loose Chips is quite a regular here at Sandown, his last three racecourse appearances have been here which have seen him trade well below half his BSP in-running. He traded down to 3.30 in-running from a BSP of 26.64 over course and distance last time out, on ground similar to todays. He races off exactly the same mark and this prominent runner should again be competitive; he currently trades around 12.50 for a back-to-lay.
