Anita Chambers has a tip for every race in the UK and Ireland on Thursday and she fancies Nicky Henderson's Sunshade at Market Rasen.

Sunshade looks a horse to follow as she lines up in the Ashes Betting At 188Bet Novices' Hurdle at Market Rasen.

The four-year-old, who is owned by the Queen, has won each of her two starts to date in fine style, claiming a bumper by six lengths at Fakenham back in April while she triumphed by the same distance on her hurdles bow last month.

That Ludlow success looked very decent, taking it up at the last before galloping on well to the line to win a shade cosily with a couple of good yardsticks in behind.

Nicky Henderson will surely be aiming to step up in grade if Sunshade can maintain her unbeaten record here.

Pink Gin has been the subject of some promising gallops reports and should be followed in the Weatherbys General Stud Book Online Silver Buck Handicap Chase.

Beaten five lengths on his return at Ffos Las last month, Pink Gin should come on for the outing and remains unexposed.

Alpine Secret let down favourite backers last time out but should be given another chance in the Bradgate Park Handicap Chase at Leicester.

He ran into a game rival at Bangor back in October and had to settle for second, but he remains on a handy mark for this.

Sibilance has so far saved her best efforts for all-weather surfaces and she can make the most of a return to the Polytrack in the Bet toteexacta At betfred.com Handicap at Chelmsford.

Ralph Beckett's charge has won each of her two starts on the artificial tracks so far and the trainer was clearly suitably impressed as he quickly ratcheted up to Listed level as she made her turf debut.

Her initial effort at York was decent as she finished third, but subsequent dates at Royal Ascot and in Group Three company at Doncaster's St Leger meeting yielded little joy and sights have been lowered again now.

Sibilance shaped with promise on her return to handicap level at Ascot, finishing third but perhaps just lacking a touch of pace on easy conditions that day.

The handicapper has actually dropped her 2lb for that run and that could prove a handy little pull in this event.

Fire Diamond is on a roll and can bring up his hat-trick in the Bet totetrifecta At betfred.com Handicap.

He has probably only won two average Wolverhampton heats for Tom Dascombe, but he is at least going the right way and has not been too heavily penalised.

He will have to post a career-best effort to win again here, but it often pays to follow horses in form through the winter.
