After a fantastic day of tipping from Toby at Aintree over the weekend, this week’s tips begin with myself. After the weather has yet again called off an Irish meeting, there is just the two jumps meetings taking place in the UK today.

The racing starts at 12:20 at Kempton, with the second meeting at Carlisle heading off shortly after at Carlisle. A Pertemps handicap hurdle qualifier joins a number of novice races at Kempton with top trainers Paul Nicholls and Nicky Henderson both having entries.

Ballymoy is the star name at Carlisle, with the grade 3 hurdle winner looking to get off the mark chasing. A number of competitive races will make it difficult for punters to pick their horses at today’s meeting. Top Irish jockey Barry Geraghty has just the one ride today on 2/1 favourite Hell’s Kitchen, which raises many questions.

Here are today’s tips…

NAP- Celtic Joy Kempton 12:55

Emma Lavelle’s horse won on track over a shorter distance of 2m2f after battling back for the victory. This was his chasing debut and the longer trip will definitely suit him and should allow for progression. Adam Wedge is booked to ride again over the same ground and should hopefully see a second win.

NB- The Kings Baby Kempton 15:15

Having found the ground too soft last time out, Richie Johnson will be looking for another victory on Kings Baby. Having won twice over fences earlier in the year, finishing second at Southwell after switching back to hurdles was a very respectable run and Harry Whittington will be hoping for one better. Only 4lbs heavier than her last win and with champion jockey Johnson on board, she looks the one to beat.

Each Way- Un Beau Roman Kempton 14:05

Having previously won off higher marks, Paul Henderson’s horse is the only course and distance winner in the field. With every finish in his last seven outings being within the top four, he has showed consistency and the ability to stay over the distance. Having won previously over a stone heavier than today, running off bottom weight should see him in contention.
