With two jumping cards and three A/W meetings today, there is plenty for punters to get their teeth stuck into on Wednesday afternoon. We have just the one selection in the den today, in what looks an interesting Novices’ Chase at 1.20pm up in Haydock...

Ballydine - A good quality Novices’ Chase here over an extended 2m4f distance, where Charlie Longsdon’s Ballydine returns after a long absence, having injured himself in the Grade 1 Sefton Novice Hurdle at Aintree in April 2016. This 7yo is a brother to Kilcooley, but has a bit more size about him for fences and although he will surely come on for the run, it’s fair to expect a big showing from the horse. He was an excellent second to Barters Hill in a Doncaster Grade 2 contest when only a shell of a horse, with the very useful Ami Desbois well held back in third that day. Ballydine seems to handle soft ground very well, the stable had a 20/1 winner yesterday and hopefully this fella can add to the purple patch.
