It’s a magic Monday with racing all over the UK and Ireland and we’re after one thing… winning horses. Don’t forget the day’s feature is the Paddy Power Chase (14:55) at Leopardstown, meanwhile the ITV cameras are at Chepstow and Kempton to capture the action.

So, we’ve asked our superstar pundits of Matt Chapman, Mick Fitzgerald, Ruby Walsh and Paddy Power to put their top tips today into a Lucky 15. And thankfully, they’ve obliged us!

Okay, let’s get to the bets…

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

13:40 Chepstow – Forever Blessed (Ruby Walsh)

I loved what FOREVER BLESSED did at Sandown earlier this month. He raced almost lethargically but he stayed well and ground it out. He’s the one for me.

14:50 Chepstow – Secret Reprieve (Mick Fitzgerald)

I love a horse that has won previously at Chepstow and SECRET REPRIEVE has done it three times in his career. He is also only 6lbs higher than he was when winning this race last year. Evan Williams has been the big-race king over the last few big weekends and this young horse could still be improving – even if he makes his seasonal bow in such a tough contest.

Hold That Taught is another trained by an in-form handler in Venetia Williams. He looks like this 3m 6f marathon trip will bring out the best in him. The only concern is he races from 6lbs out of the handicap and that is a negative.

Elegant Escape is of interest as a previous winner of the race (2018). He is slipping down the ratings, which will help his cause and he is only 5lbs higher than when he won the race. He’ll love conditions and should run well. Native River would be a fantastic result for the punters, but it will be a big ask with the weight Colin Tizzard’s gelding has to carry.

14:55 Leopardstown – Fully Charged (Paddy Power)

I’m going with FULLY CHARGED for Henry De Bromhead and Darragh O’Keeffe. He’s on a hat-trick and he’s clearly in good form. It’s a step up in trip which is unknown but I still fancy Fully Charged.

15:10 Kempton – Cap Du Nord (Matt Chapman)

Coverage on ITV ends with this handicap chase. Not all of these will be strong stayers but one who is is CAP DU NORD trained by Christian Williams. My hope has been dropped 2lbs despite a very fair fourth at Wincanton last time. That means he’s tastily handicapped off a mark of 133 having once been 142. Stays very strong so worth a few quid each-way under Ellis Collier who takes off a useful 7lbs.
