ALAN has three Sunday fancies from Carlisle and there’s also racing from Southwell plus an exciting card from Navan for punters to lap up.
XPO UNIVERSEL is a warm order on an interesting Sunday card at Carlisle and should complete his hat-trick now returned to fences by trainer Rebecca Menzies. The gelding has hacked up on his last two starts over hurdles.
SPIDER’S BITE was rather harshly raised 5lb for chasing home King Of Realms at Ascot but the winner is a useful sort. Spider’s Bite is a dual winner at Ludlow, another right-hand track, and may be up to defying top weight.
BIG RIVER is held in high regard by Lucinda Russell and is back over hurdles after falling when last seen over the larger obstacles in a decent event won by Lake View Lad at Carlisle.
