Newspaper tipsThree meetings take place today on this very quiet Wednesday, however with a limited amount of races available, this helps focus the day’s Newspaper Tips, with the day’s top fancies below. Check out a trio of runners from Exeter, along with a pick each from Ayr and Bangor.

1: De Name Evades Me 2:35pm Exeter (5 Votes)

Won at Warwick a year ago and followed on with places in successive Class 2 Handicap Hurdle races at Newbury and Cheltenham. Finished third in a Novices Chase on seasonal return and looks in great shape to take the spoils today.

2: Esprit Du Large 3:05pm Exeter (4 Votes)

Winner of Novice hurdle races at Uttoxeter and Hereford last season. Returned to action last month and finished second on Chase debut at Carlisle. Favourable ground and longer trip all add up to a strong opportunity here.

3: Queens Cave 4:10pm Exeter (4 Votes)

Odds on favourite, who looked back to their best, when second at Chepstow last month, having spent ten months off with a fibrillating heart problem, after being pulled up when a 1-14 favourite at Sandown. Looks head and shoulders above the rest here.

4: Calivigny 1:05pm Ayr (3 Vote)

Two of four previous victories have come at this venue and picked up back to back wins in December of last year. Decent performances since then, with a return to hurdle racing resulting in a fifth at Kelso last time out. Wears headgear which should help, as will conditions.

5: The Wolf 2:55pm Bangor (3 Vote)

Impressive seventeen length win last time out at Fakenham in a novice hurdle. Has a seven pound advantage over nearest rivals here, but more of a contest is expected, especially on untested conditions.
