Free horse racing selections for Sunday May 13

Keith Hamer expects Jonjo O'Neill to be among the winners on Sunday and he has a tip for every race in the UK and Ireland.

Festive Affair can make a victorious return to action following a break in the Extra Places At totesport.com Handicap Chase at Ludlow on Sunday.

The 10-year-old won this event last year and it would be no surprise to see him repeat that success now the ground has quickened up again.

He has been off the track since finishing just under four lengths behind Colin's Brother at this track back in December, with the winner having gone on to score again since.

Jonjo O'Neill has plotted exactly the same route as last season with Festive Affair and while he races off a 7lb higher mark, he looks capable of defying it judged on his pre-Christmas run.

Baden looks weighted to regain the winning thread in the totepool Cashback Club At totesport.com Novices' Handicap Chase.

Nicky Henderson's seven-year-old ran respectably when fourth to Winter Lion at Cheltenham after winning the Grand Military Gold Cup at Sandown on his previous start.

Peruvien Bleu ran well until the lack of a recent outing found him out over this course five weeks ago.

Third place was still a fair effort and the Nick Williams-trained six-year-old can go two places better in the totesport.com £20 Free Bets Handicap Hurdle.

When Austin Friars last ran over jumps in October 2016 it resulted in success over two miles at Plumpton.

He has just had four starts on the Flat since then, but the latest was at the beginning of May, so Suzi Best's six-year-old will not lack race fitness in the Julie Brown Memorial Handicap Hurdle at the East Sussex track.

Voix d'Eau could be worth supporting in the Fiskerton Handicap Chase at Southwell after blowing away the cobwebs at Cheltenham last month on his first start for 145 days.

The Harry Fry-trained eight-year-old did not run at all badly in the race won by Traffic Fluide in a higher grade than this contest.

Aidan O'Brien puts more of his Classic hopefuls on the line at Leopardstown with The Pentagon looking to bounce back from a disappointing seasonal debut and book his place in the Investec Derby with a big showing in the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial.

The Pentagon was a well-beaten third to stablemate Nelson in the Ballysax Stakes, but that was on heavy ground.

He looked pretty smart with quicker underfoot conditions last term and was third to O'Brien's 2000 Guineas winner Saxon Warrior in the Racing Post Trophy.

O'Brien can also take the Derrinstown Stud 1,000 Guineas Trial with Ballet Shoes, who had pretty useful form as a two-year-old but looked the type to do better at three.
