Ruby Walsh and Frank Hickey have selected their best bets ahead of a packed weekend of racing action, and the former has covered his back with trio of picks in order to bag a winner.
Speaking on the latest episode of Paddy Power’s twice-weekly From The Horse’s Mouth podcast, Ruby is adamant Fiddlerontheroof will bag a victory while Frank had been hoping Lightly Squeeze would get a run in the Cesarewitch but has had to change his plans.
I think that QUEENS BROOK will win the 3.15pm at Fairyhouse.
I love FIDDLERONTHEROOF. I think he’s a two-and-a-half mile horse every day of the week. He ran in the Supreme last year but I think he should have run in the Ballymore myself.
Quality jumps action this weekend and Ruby was on form on today’s episode of FTHM. He was joined by the great Frank Hickey to guide you through all the weekend’s racing.

Fusil Raffles has won at Uttoxeter and will be fit while Grand Sancy was a 148-rated hurdler but I remember turning up at Chepstow many years ago riding Silviniaco Conte in this very race and he got beaten by Cue Card. Colin Tizzard aims horses at this race, and Fiddlerontheroof sticks out to me.
On Sunday, MT LEINSTER will win the 4.10pm at the Curragh.
Lightly Squeeze was my best bet, in the hope that it would get into the Cesarewitch, but he hasn’t so I’ll go to Fairyhouse for the Novice Chase over 2m5f and put up COURT MAID. She was a useful hurdler but she was very impressive on her chase debut at Galway over 2m6f.
She absolutely hammered Doctor Duffy that day, and Doctor Duffy has gone on to win a Maiden and the Mayo National while he was third in the Kerry National. I think Court Maid should be quite useful over fences.
