Our tip tipster selected three winners - at 11-4, 11-4 and 12-1 - from three selections on Wednesday and has another three fancies on Thursday.

1.00 Market Rasen: Meep Meep

I selected this mare as my horse to follow a couple of seasons ago and she hasn’t won a race since, which is possibly not that encouraging.

I haven’t backed her on her two starts as a beaten favourite since joining Dan Skelton but have seen enough to believe that I can step back in again and hopefully salvage some losses now…and pride!

Her reappearance effort was particularly encouraging as she certainly didn’t get the run of the race, and although she wouldn’t have won but for a key mistake and being hampered, she would have finished closer.

I regard Skelton as the best target-trainer in the game and I am sure that he will be determined to find the key to this mare and win a race over hurdles with her.

Hopefully the application of cheekpieces will be the significant move aswell.

5.00 Chelmsford: Bye Bye Lady

Bye Bye Lady will hopefully say hello to the winners’ enclosure on her first appearance for over 12 months here.

She is clearly thought to be worth persevering with as a racehorse, even though she has achieved a success already, and she looks so well handicapped that she could run up a sequence over a distance that is often the least competitive area.

She won her race last year in the style of a real stayer and the market will tell us if she is fit after her absence, and if she is fit after her absence, and if she is supported, I fully expect her to score.

7.00 Chelmsford: Aces

It might have been a smart move running this horse in a claimer last time as he has been dropped 9lb in one run, although the eight-year-old is definitely not the horse he once was.

He didn’t get the best of runs in that race and stayed on, just like he had done in two previous runs for this yard.

It could be that he is being readied for a win in a 6f sprint sometime soon, but I am happy to be with him for a few runs around this mark, even over five furlongs here.
