Our in-form website tipster struck with Blaklion (3-1) on Wednesday and marks your card for the racing action at Leicester and Market Rasen on Thursday, live on Racing TV.

2.07 Leicester: Furkash

Ran poorly on his final two runs last season but the Colin Tizzard stable is going markedly better this term and he has dropped 7lb as a result of those poor efforts.

It is encouraging that Colin Tizzard is persevering with him and the jockey booking of Sam Twiston-Davies looks strong. The fact he is well entered up currently also encourages me to feel positive.

He beat Lord Baddesley comfortably at Fontwell in a novices’ hurdle last year and that rival is now rated 130, so if the selection is back to form, he could be very well weighted indeed, and may be worth chancing here.

2.22 Market Rasen: Clondaw Bisto

Will no doubt be a price after an absence, which is presumably due to injury, but could be very well handicapped indeed as he is now lower than he was for a win just four outings ago.

His disappointing effort last time out is probably explained by the absence, but he has run very well after six, and nine-month, lay-offs in the past plus his trainer, Suzy Smith, has her small string in good form.

Thomas Doggrell is a conditional who is increasingly taking the eye and has ridden five winners from 17 rides since the start of August, so is well worth his 7lb claim. At prospective odds, Clondaw Bisto is worth chancing.

2.52 Market Rasen: Malinas Island

Malinas Island is off the same mark when winning a conditional’s event last time and with the winning rider able to claim his allowance, he is actually running off 3lb lower.

The stable is currently in hot form and this six-year-old has improved with each run over hurdles, especially since the headgear was applied. He looks unopposable here.
