Daily Racing Tips: Mark Milligan heads to Aintree for 40/1 each-way double

Mark Milligan is targeting Aintree today

Mark Milligan finishes his short stint in the Daily Racing Multiple hotseat with a juicy double at the feature meeting of the day...

  • Mark is looking at the jumps on an interesting Sunday

  • First selection goes for an in-form yard

  • He's hoping Tommy's Oscar puts up a bold show in the Old Roan

Aintree - 12:50 - Back No But I Will

It's intriguing stuff at Aintree today and an each-way double may well be the sensible option, given we're faced with some competitive affairs.

The first selection is in the conditional jockeys' handicap hurdle that opens the card, where I'm siding with No But I Will, who hails from a yard in fine form.

Still relatively unexposed with just five starts under his belt, this six-year-old gelding got off the mark on his final start last season, taking a novice hurdle at Bangor in determined style.

He looks a strong stayer in the making and proved well suited by stepping back up in trip there and today's extended 3m will hold no fears for him.

The selection makes his handicap debut off a fair opening mark of 116, particularly when you consider it's likely we've yet to see the best of him.

Aintree - 14:00 - Tommy's Oscar

The feature race of the day, the Old Roan Handicap Chase, probably revolves around whether the exciting My Drogo is ready to roll after a 687-day layoff.

If he is, he may well win, but I'd prefer to take him on this time, especially as we have an extra place available on the Sportsbook.

The classy Hitman is obviously a big player too, but he does come with a few risks attached (bled in the King George) and preference is for Tommy's Oscar.

The selection made a winning comeback in fine style at Kelso earlier in the month and looks ready to take off in his second season chasing.

He had a rather hit and miss novice campaign but looks firmly on the right track now and he looks the type who can go on and make his mark in Graded chases this season.

Back Tommy's Oscar each-way @ 4/15.00
