Today’s top selections from the press and media feature a pair of runners at Southwell, along with entrants at Market Rasen, Wincanton and Kempton making up the day’s quintet. So check out the top five most popular newspaper tips below, along with the best odds available.
1: FIRST ACCOUNT (2:40pm Musselburgh) (5 Votes)
Picked up three places in three career starts under Donald McCain Jr, before switching to Keith Dalgliesh’s yard. Made stable debut over fences eight days ago and took the victory in a Class 4 over 2m 4f, but reverts back to hurdles for todays run. Longer trip is likely to suit overall and comes in off a competitive mark which only adds to his already strong chances.

2: KAYF ADVENTURE (3:18pm Wincanton) (4 Votes)
Has failed to find success since winning over course and distance two years ago and has finally started to find some form. Was pulled up at Aintree over the National fences, but has bounced back with a fourth at Carlisle and third at Ascot in a strong 2m 5f chase, finishing 5 lengths off winner Domaine De L’isle. Drops a level today, while first time cheek-pieces should also maintain focus.

3: PUNCTUATION (6:30pm Kempton) (4 Votes)
Odds on favourite for todays race and looked a strong prospect, when 20/1 second on debut over course and distance a month ago, missing out by a head to To Nathaniel. Expected to take the victory and looks head and shoulders above the rest of this field.

4: RAYDIANCE (3:35pm Southwell) (3 Votes)
Three time winner of turf and has transferred that onto the all-weather, winning on the third attempt over course and distance by 0.75 lengths. Followed on with a fourth over a mile at Class 2 level, but reverts back to the fruitful trip this afternoon. Looks strong here and could improve further.

5: LIGHT LILY (4:35pm Southwell) (2 Votes)
Enjoyed the switch to fibresand, when a 50/1 winner last time out on first run here (7f), winning by 1.25 lengths in the process and a long way clear of the rest. Looks better suited to todays mile trip and even with a 6lb penalty, looks very likely to put in another strong performance.
