Irish NationalDaryl Carter has been in fantastic form with another two winners on Sunday, including 11/2 shot Equus Dancer. He has some big fancies today. Check them out and get a £20 FREE BET ON THE IRISH GRAND NATIONAL

KINGS WALK (1.00 Chepstow, 1pt each-way 12/1)

Most of these have been disappointing at some point or another but that’s not the case for KINGS WALK who returned to action at Fontwell off a 719-day break with an excellent second behind an improving 140-rated horse.

That was his first hurdle run for more than 3 years and his first start after a wind operation so he is entitled to improve drastically for that outing. He gets his favoured good ground today for the first time since winning a highly competitive race at Kempton in 2018 off a handicap mark of 120 and he shaped as though he retained all of his old ability at Fontwell.

He looks the way to go in this heat off a career-low handicap mark and the lightly raced ten-year-old is an attractive each-way price.

FRENCH LIGHT (2.05 Fairyhouse, 1pt each-way 8/1)

It’s worth taking a flyer on FRENCH LIGHT who looks well treated under Richard Condon’s 7lb claim on the balance of his form and is entitled to improve now switched to better ground judged.

The six-year-old has kept some warm company for Keri Brion in 5 starts for the yard including when a good second to Thedevilscoachman in a Listed race at Punchestown (DSQ subsequently, underweight) and ahead of Fire Attack (134), while on these terms he would be in receipt of 22lb and 14lb respectively.

This first start on good ground is likely to see him in a better light and he is effectively running off a handicap mark of 120 so has to be taken into calculations.

ILIKEDWAYURTHINKIN (3.15 Fairyhouse, 1pt each-way 10/1)

ILIKEDWAYURTHINKIN is a frustrating but well-handicapped horse and he has been disappointing over fences on his last five starts but the switch back to hurdles and the return to a sounder surface for the first time since winning at Galway are both positives.

He looks well treated on his Martin Pipe run at the Cheltenham Festival in 2020 when an excellent 8th of 23 off a handicap mark of 139 and inclusive of Simon Torrens’ 5lb claim he is now 9lb lower.

This step up in trip to 2m6f also looks a big positive so there are reasons to expect an improved performance so a chance is taken.

FRENCH DYNAMITE (3.50 Fairyhouse, 1pt win 3/1)

FRENCH DYNAMITE was impressive when given an easy task at 1/7f at Leopardstown and he has now recorded RPRS in the 150s on his last three starts and looks to have the perfect trip today.

There is not much depth to this race and he is improving with each start and should have too much speed for The Bosses Oscar for who the drop in trip looks a negative.
