- Lay Mixboy @ 2.77/4 in the 14:35 Carlisle
- Back Warrantor @ 4.3100/30 in the 15:05 Carlisle
- Back Royal Birth each way @ 5.39/2 in the 16:20 Wolverhampton

Firstly we head to Carlisle for today's negative in the 14:35 Handicap Hurdle over 2m 1f. Selection Mixboy has proved easy to back this morning drifting from [2.1) out to 2.77/4, sent off as a short priced favourite last time out at Sedgefield he failed to make any real impression, eventually ending up 12 lengths behind winner Card Game. In such a competitive race we feel at least one will be too good for him, with the improving Veinard looking the main danger.

We remain at Carlisle for our first positive in the 15:05 Handicap Chase over 3m. Selection Warrantor has seen steady support this morning backed from a high of 5.59/2 in to the currently trading 4.3100/30. If we ignore his previous run where he was a faller at the first, the penultimate time out he showed grit to grind out an impressive win on heavy ground, today's going will therefore not be an issue and with the money down he's the one to be on.

Finally we head to Wolverhampton for our each way selection in the 16:20 over 5f. Selection Royal Birth has seen significant support this morning and his price is still contracting, available this morning at 8.415/2 he is now no better than 5.39/2. A former course and distance winner, he has won three times in his career over the trip. The only slight doubt today being the low draw, due to the hold up tactics deployed with him he will need a clean run but should the gaps occur we feel at least a place is on the cards.
