Today’s top selections from the press and media feature a trio of runners at Doncaster, along with a pick each from Chelmsford and Fairyhouse making up the quintet. So check out the top five most popular newspaper tips below, along with the best odds available.
1: SHUMAKER (1:45pm Fairyhouse) (3 Votes)
Winner of three successive races in October, before a third in a Grade B handicap hurdle at Down Royal in November. Was unfortunate when losing a shoe when pulled up last time out, but that shouldn’t halt the impressive progression he has had. Should go close to favourite Future Proof. One to add to your lists.

2: EYES RIGHT (3:50pm Doncaster) (3 Votes)
Bumper winner back in March of last year and made an impressive hurdle debut, when fourth in a Class 2 novices at Newbury last November. Finished third last time out, when dropping a couple of levels, so improvement is expected for this handicap debut. Has a good opportunity today.

3: COTSWOLD WAY (2:10pm Doncaster) (2 Votes)
Picked up four victories over hurdles last year and has so far made a promising start to chases, with successive seconds at Ludlow, including last time out in a Class 3 outing over 2m 4f. Ground should suit and has been backed in to clear favourite status.

4: STOCKBURN (3:15pm Doncaster) (2 Votes)
Took to chasing well, when picking up a victory at Bangor on second race over fences. Has a record since of 2P23 and drops down a level, after recent attempts at Class 3 level. Back down in trip which should offer encouragement, while the visor worn in the last race is retained. Solid each-way claims.

5: WIMPOLE HALL (7:30pm Chelmsford) (2 Votes)
Has a stong record at Chelmsford, with three wins and a place in seven visit to Essex. Won over course and distance in November and has since finished sixth and fifth. Currently just 2lbs heavier than when they won and goes in as favourite to take the spoils.
