12:45 – Glan

Party Central’s mark of 121 is attractive but my one worry would be the lack of experience in a big field handicap. That would then point you towards Glan and Sit Down Lucy. Both ran at Fairyhouse in November, with Glan finishing second and Sit Down Lucy ending up fourth. Glan came from a long way back and just failed so I’ll side with her.

13:20 – Galopin Des Champs

Galopin Des Champs left a real impression on people over Christmas. This is a much stronger race than his win on December 28 but it’s hard to go against Galopin Des Champs. He could be special.

13:50 – Chacun Pour Soi

Chacun Pour Soi is in great form at home but he’s on a recovery mission after his run in the Tingle Creek at Sandown. Greaneteen beat him on that occasion and Paul Nicholls has sent him over again so he isn’t scared of Chacun Pour Soi. However, I like Chacun Pour Soi and he’s got good course form here too. I can’t oppose him.

14:25 – Max Flamingo

Blackbow has been a bit disappointing but maybe the step up in trip will suit him. Max Flamingo is an interesting one for Francis Casey as he ran well over Christmas. He finished fourth over 3m and he drops back in trip here. Gallant John Joe and The Shunter are of interest too but I’ll side with Max Flamingo.

15:00 – Honeysuckle

I’m with Honeysuckle all the way in this one. It’s impossible to oppose her.

15:35 – Sir Gerhard

Sir Gerhard is in great form and he worked well at the Curragh the other morning. He’s a great horse and he’ll do me every day! Three Stripe Life was a little lucky over Christmas but Sir Gerhard’s the one.

16:10 – Eskylane

I thought Eskylane, even though he’s crept up in the weights, is worth keeping an eye on but I don’t have a strong fancy in this race.

16:40 – Pink In The Park

Pink In The Park will win this one. She bolted in at Listowel in September and she’s a top filly.

Ruby Walsh’s best bets:

12:45 – Glan
13:20 – Galopin Des Champs
13:50 – Chacun Pour Soi
14:25 – Max Flamingo
15:00 – Honeysuckle
15:35 – Sir Gerhard
16:10 – Eskylane
16:40 – Pink In The Park
