Recommended Bets

Lay Herons Heir @ 3.1511/5 in the 13:50 at Market Rasen
Back Silver Eagle each way @ 7.06/1 in the 14:55 at Market Rasen
Back Crosspark @ 4.84/1 in the 15:30 at Market Rasen

For today's negative we head to the 13:50 Handicap Hurdle over 2m. Selection Herons Heir has proved easy to back this morning, drifting from 2.526/4 out to 3.1511/5. Only just on his handicap debut having been so lightly raced, there are too many question marks and at the price we are happy to take him on. Preference goes to the well-weighted Sailors Warn who impressed in defeat last time out at Sedgefield.

This afternoon's each way selection is the 14:55 Handicap Chase over 2m 5f. Silver Eagle has seen steady support this morning backed from a high of 8.615/2 in to the currently available 7.06/1. He didn't perform to his abilities on his return at Doncaster in November when sent off co-favourite, however he remains very well-weighted and if he can come on for that run we feel he is worthy of at least a place.

Finally for our second positive we focus on the 15:30 Handicap Hurdle over 2m 4f. Selection Crosspark has been well-supported and is now trading at 4.84/1 from an early 7.06/1. An impressive third last time out on only his second start, the form was franked in style with the winner that day Singlefarmpayment landing the spoils in a competitive Handicap at Cheltenham on New Year's Day.
