Just because Cheltenham's over, doesn't mean we have to forget all about racing...

Chelmsford City – 6:00pm

Atyaaf is bred to be much better than where he finds himself at the basement level, picked up for £9,000 by current connections. Sometimes one slips the net with a little bit more ability than expected.

He’s also drawn close to the paint and it’s point-and-shoot time for our rider, Paddy Mathers.

Chelmsford City – 7:30pm

A seven-time winner and no stranger to winning at this particular course and distance, it just could be a massive evening for Samphire Coast and this massively underrated trainer-jockey combination of Derek Shaw and Paddy Mathers.

He has a slice of quality and can prove it by popping up at decent odds yet again.

Chelmsford City – 8:30pm

Rapid Rise was a massive eyecatcher last time when staying on strongly after getting lost in the ruck late on in the contest over the long sprint 7 furlongs. His first try over the dead mile can prove the key to another success.

Dundalk 6:15pm

Ciao managed to win for Gavin Cromwell two starts ago in pretty impressive fashion, though she struggled a touch when aggressively ridden in handicap company last time.

From a wide stall position I hope they drop in and take their time to take advantage of her natural finishing speed.

As an added bonus, the trainer’s had a good week as well.

Dundalk – 7:45pm

Pedro De Styles steps into the last chance saloon tonight. Even though he is drawn out in the car park, he has a great jockey on board in Wayne Lordan. It was not a ride to remember last time, when posted wide the whole way round. He’s not the type of rider to make the same mistake again.

The Bolger favourite Latchet should make the running and the selection can pounce late.

Dundalk – 8:45pm

Not my normal style to go with the favourite in the last but when the opposition looks mediocre and we have an improving runner from the Halford outfit, Isosceles, why would you look elsewhere? The battle he had last time will have sharpened the focus – he may be skinny but he should prove far too good in the lucky last at Fundalk.
