Back Upswing at 3.953/1 in the 16:00 at Carlisle  
Lay Aiteen Thirtythree at 2.3211/8 in the 16:20 at Lingfield  
Back Knock A Hand  at 6.25/1 in the 16:30 at Carlisle  

Our first selection is Upswing in the 16:00 at Carlisle. Supported from an initial price of 5.85/1 into a current 3.953/1, we are recommending this as our first back. The seven-year-old gelding is back over hurdles and is reunited with jockey Tony McCoy. He is a dual course winner and with trainer Jonjo O'Neill in great form with a strike rate of 34% (11-32) in the last two weeks we can see why this has seen strong support all morning. With underfoot conditions to suit he should go well.

Next up we are off to Lingfield for our lay of the day. Here we are going to oppose Aiteen Thirtythree in the 16:20 Hunters Chase, who has drifted to a price of 2.3211/8 from a low of 1.51/2. This gelding is coming back from a 274 day absence which, combined with heavy ground that will not suit and strong support for Seigneur Des Bois gives us reason to be confident.

Finally we return to Carlisle for our second positive in the 16:30 where we are going to recommend backing Knock A Hand. Having been steadily supported in from 12.5 to a current price of 6.25/1, we think this Richard Lee-trained gelding will return to his best today after a poor run in the Rowland Meyrick Chase on Boxing Day. The selection enjoys this course, recording one win and one place from two starts here and the ground should be soft enough for him to show his best. The booking of Sam Twiston-Davies and the 216 mile round trip suggests connections mean business and today everything is in place for a big run.
