I SWITCHED my email to ‘out of office’ as quick as Chapman is to Nap a 1-2 shot on Friday afternoon.

Nonetheless I’m still committed to finding my friends some winners and I’ve got two treats lined up for you this Sunday.

12.50 Thomas Campbell – I respect my colleague and top tipster Callum tremendously, but I just can’t see past Nicky Henderson’s six-year-old in this race.

He improved at Ludlow and should come on for that confidence booster around a tricky little track.

Bags Groove has to lug round a double penalty and so long as Nicky has out down the red wine following Altior’s Tingle smash up, I’m all over Thomas.

His jumping left a bit to be desired on chase debut, but he put that right at Ludlow and should start progressing now.


1.05 Calett Mad – The Scottish Borders National is as testing as it comes and I fancy Nigel’s six-year-old to love every single minute of it.

He’s got a big weight to carry but has had two encouraging runs in strong races so far and the handicapper has given him a sniff, dropping him a couple of pounds.

His jumping let him down at Cheltenham when going strong and the fences at Kelso can be a bit more forgiving.

It’s a hell of a trip for the Twiston-Davies team to be making on a Sunday, so let’s hope it pays off for the boys in green.
