We have five meetings for Thursday, with Exeter, Thurles and Worcester providing the afternoon’s cards, with evening meetings at Kempton and Southwell. The day’s top newspaper tips included a couple of runners looking to make it a three-timer over course and distance.
Check out the five most popular selections below.
This favourite goes looking for a hat-trick of wins over course and distance, after winning by a length and a half last time. Remains unbeaten on the All-Weather and has minor weight advantages over nearest rivals

Another runner looking for a course and distance hat-trick, having won by over a length last time out. Three wins and three places in the last nine starts show a strong consistency from the Les Eyre trained ride, with Poeta Brasileiro offering the only threat.

A bit of an outsider in the market, but finished well, when second at Market Rasen back in May. The drop in class and shorter trip will help, but may need the run, before we see the best. Worth an each-way selection for those more cautious backers.
(Norwich Evening News, Chris Connolly. The Scotsman, Glendale)
Favourite for the race and will be hoping to pick up the win before a weight penalty applies. Has finished 2nd, 1st, 2nd in the last three outings, with the win coming at Laytown. Has placed four from four at Southwell, while jockey Gabriele Malune has a win and three places in four rides onboard.
