Champagne To Go is Nick Grant's best Sunday bet and he has a tip for every race in the UK and Ireland.
NAP: Champagne To Go (12.55 Carlisle)
Next best: Apple's Jade (2.40 Fairyhouse)
Champagne To Go can sparkle in the Smarkets Northern Lights Mares' Hurdle Series Final Mares' Handicap Hurdle at Carlisle.
Trained by Rebecca Menzies, the eight-year-old does not have a phenomenal strike-rate by any means - but does have ability and will handle the ground.
She won a qualifier for this £35,000 prize at Sedgefield last time out, being given a patient ride at the rear of the field through the early stages before easing her way into it.
There was a bit to like about her attitude from the final flight, as Question Of Faith put down a strong challenge only to find Nathan Moscrop and Champagne To Go not for passing, and if anything going away again at the end.
This race has been the target, and it will be a surprise if she does not give a good account on a track that should play to her strengths - because she stays well and gets further than two and a half miles.
An added bonus is her under-rated stable continues to go well.
There are further finals of the Northern Lights series on the card, with Iolani not out of it on this stiffer circuit in the two-mile feature and Rivabodiva looking a solid pick in the stayers' event.
It is a particularly good afternoon at the Cumbrian venue, with the Smarkets Betting Exchange Houghton Mares' Chase also of note.
It has attracted a select field of just four, among whom Peter Bowen's Welsh Grand National entry Rons Dream stands out.
The drought, which has broken elsewhere in the country, persists in the East Midlands - and has left Leicester staging an all-hurdles card, sadly including a walkover, because of the firm ground.
Olly Murphy's It's O Kay may nonetheless be a decent proposition in the Stoneygate Mares' Maiden Hurdle.
The five-year-old's seasonal debut was disappointing on the face of it, when she was last of eight finishers at Newbury three weeks ago.
But she was highly-tried there, and it is surely indicative of plenty of ability that her astute young trainer pitched her into that company. Sights are lowered here, and It's O Kay can prove just that.
There is no paucity of runners over in Ireland, where the top-notch Fairyhouse fare is highlighted by the Baroneracing.com Hatton's Grace Hurdle - in which Apple's Jade should be a tough nut to crack once again.
Gordon Elliott's mare is chasing a hat-trick of wins in the Grade One feature, and is perfectly placed to do that after a winning return at Down Royal.
Her stablemate Commander Of Fleet is a budding superstar and should not be opposed in the Royal Bond Novice Hurdle.
