Recommended Bets
Back Dalkadam Each Way @ 6.86/1 in the 13:45 Uttoxeter
Lay Lough Derg Spirit @ 3.505/2 in the 13:55 Ascot
Back Politologue @ 1.8810/11 in the 14:30 Ascot


We start the day with our each-way selection, Dalkadam, who runs in the 13:45 at Uttoxeter, a novice handicap hurdle. A runner at the same venue ten days ago when attracting good support and finishing a respectable fourth. He runs off the same mark, steps back down in trip and is currently trading at 6.86/1 from 10.09/1. This looks like a good opportunity to open his account and is tipped up as our each-way selection.

Next is our lay selection who runs in Novice Hurdle 13:55 Ascot - Lough Derg Spirit who has been on the drift all morning from an early price of 2.68/5 and is now available at 3.55/2. Trained by Nicky Henderson, who is doubly represented here, and another notable danger is the Paul Nicholls trained Capitaine, we are willing to lay the selection these odds in what looks a very competitive race.

Finally, our back selection comes in the 14:30 Ascot the Grade 2 Novice Chase, Politologue trained by Paul Nicholls, this five-year-old won on his chasing debut by ten lengths at Haydock has been supported from 2.01/1 and is currently at 1.8810/11. Having previously won a listed hurdle back in February, the selection should be too good for his three rivals.
