Top tipster Dave Nevison shares his best bets for the meetings at Chelmsford and Sandown on Thursday, which you can watch live on Racing TV.
4.55 Chelmsford: Monsieur Fantaisie
Trainer John O’Shea is in good form this modest handicapper, a course winner, has improved in recent runs.
He has been second twice after a short break, both times under Luke Morris who has struck up a good relationship with the four-year-old.
The way he stays on in his races, coupled with his pedigree, suggests he might improve a little for the step back up to 7f here.
Monsieur Fantaisie is well enough drawn and appears likely to get a well-run race, which will suit.

8.10 Chelmsford; Independence Day
The booking of Jamie Spencer for the last race at Chelmsford takes the eye here and this looks set to be a strongly-run event - set up for the jockey to excel on this hold-up performer.
I don’t back many Chelsea Banham winners but this horse won at Kempton over 6f four runs ago and was third at Lingfield over Thursday’s trip shortly after.
He ran well enough last week when 14-1 and it will be interesting if the jockey booking prompts a market move.
8.20 Sandown; Professional Widow
She won in May last year off a mark of 80 and subsequently ran some good races off higher marks without winning again.
She finished fourth over this course and distance off a mark of 82 last September and is now down to 75 and dropped in grade.
Professional Widow ran well enough on her reappearance when things didn’t go her way, suggesting she is in good form. Trainer Richard Spencer is in excellent form and Tom Marquand on board for the first time is another positive.
