Only Paul’s each-way pick from yesterday managed to finish its race, but did so in a profitable position. A 14/1 third with Republican at Taunton.

We begin the day at 12:15 at the Berkshire racecourse of Newbury. It is the weekend of the Ladbrokes Trophy(Hennessy Gold Cup) which takes place tomorrow. There are seven races on the card altogether but the standouts and my NAP are below.

Today sees the seasonal return for the champion staying hurdler Paisley Park who runs in the 15:00 against four talented runners, at Grade 2 level.

Another Grade 2 race is the 14:25 where another six excellent runners go over bigger obstacles, including multiple Grade 1 winner Champ.

We then cross the water for a 12:30 start at Limerick. The going is soft to heavy for their seven-race card, as Willie Mullins will look to continue his unbelievable strike rate of 41% with a debutant in Dysart Diamond in the 15:55.

The fibresand is standard at Southwell for seven more afternoon races, beginning at 12:55. My NB runs in the 15:45.

Two evening meetings on a busy Friday, sees two eight-race all-weather cards at Kempton and in Dundalk. Beginning at 16:30 and 17:15 respectively, these floodlit meetings will keep the racing flowing all day. My Each-Way selection is in the 17:45 at Dundalk.

Here are my tips for the day:

NAP: Faustinovack – 13:20 Newbury

Wearing the silks of Betfair Chase hero Lostintranslation, this youngster has been second in a bumper to McFabulous and in a point-to-point race to Andy Dufresne. All connections are the same as Saturday, and there’s no better man to have riding than Robbie Power.

NB: Suitcase ‘N’ Taxi – 15:45 Southwell

A ready winner here on Wednesday for a C&D hat-trick and still improving potentially too. Duran Fentiman takes this ride for this successful all-weather gelding.

Each-way: Lever Du Soleil – 17:45 Dundalk

Landed a four-timer in the summer in the UK for Gavin Cromwell on the flat. Was returned to Ireland for hurdle and chase races, but no such luck there. He returns today after more than a month off after an Irish Cesarewitch run at the Curragh, where the soft ground had the better of him.
