Switch back to five furlongs potential positive for Mick Channon’s charge.

Has run well here before and plenty of each-way support on seasonal reappearance.

4:30 Salisbury - Markaz – 20/1 to 11/1

Expensive buy and clearly expected to step up on Haydock debut.

5:20 Doncaster – Instant Attraction – 14/1 to 9/1

Trader Tip

Cork 5.00 – Three Bells

There are few greater draw biases in racing than the one that sees  low numbers massively favoured on the 7f track at Cork, and with that in mind,  circumstances look ideal for Three Bells to end a fairly lengthy losing run this afternoon. Patrick Downey’s representative has saved his very best efforts for 7f/1m on sharp tracks and looked to be coming to the boil when fifth to Lily’s Prince in a competitive handicap at Fairyhouse last time, unfortunate not to have finished closer having been short of room at a vital stage. He’s now 2 lb lower than when last successful and will hopefully be able to adopt his customary prominent position from what will essentially now be stall 6.
