SUNDAY WEEKENDER

15:55 Carlisle A soggy Carlisle is the type of conditions that trainer Venetia Williams often relishes for her runners and her entrant PRESSURIZE could be ready to go after a recent fourth place on his return. If he relishes the step up in trip he’s bound to go much better than his current double figure price suggests, especially on ground he loves. Top northern jockey Brian Hughes only has just the one ride on the card in the form of race favourite Firth Of The Clyde. The horse won the race last year but may struggle to repeat such a feat this time around having to carry top weight. No Planning and Mad Brian look big dangers at decent prices. PRESSURIZE (E/W)

17:05 Limerick A trip over to Ireland for our second selection in a two mile beginners chase. As this weeks Cheltenham Festival showed Gordon Elliot has his yard flying and promising young jockey Jack Kennedy is sharing some of the limelight as well. The trainer and jockey duo team up with course winner DOUBLE SCORES. Looking at the betting it seems it’s just a two horse race with the Elliot horses biggest danger set to be Go It Alone. The current favourite has some decent hurdles form but a drop back in trip isn’t sure to suit and making his chase debut leaves more questions than answers so it has to be Elliot’s charge. DOUBLE SCORES (WIN)
