Channel 4 Bets
Here we provide our selections and analysis for all of today's Channel 4 Races.
Sandown 2:25 Betfred TV Scilly Isles Novices' Chase (Grade 1) (1) 5yo+ View BetTurtle Racecard
We haven't seen the best of BRISTOL DE MAI yet due to easy victories so far and he has the potential to step up a level and take this grade 1.
Sandown 3:00 Betfred Mobile Heroes Handicap Hurdle (Grade 3) (1) 4yo+ View BetTurtle Racecard
IBIS DU RHEU lost ground at the start in last at Kempton and has the potential to improve over this distance and go close. The each way alternative is Medinas.
Sandown 3:30 Betfred Masters Handicap Chase (2) 5yo+ View BetTurtle Racecard
LE REVE won this race last year and should go close again today with first time blinkers.
Win Value Bets
Our value bets highlight the horses we think have the best chance of winning at value prices (typically 2/1+). Our NAP is the bet we are most confident with and NB is our next best selection at prices better than odds on. The Lay Of The Day is the horse we think represents poor value and has the most realistic chance of being beaten today.
Lingfield 1.10 Clement 2/1 View BetTurtle Racecard
Has won last two race at the course impressively. Can make it a hatrick today.
Lingfield 2.20 Burning Thread 3/1 View BetTurtle Racecard
Won at Kempton in December and ran respectably twice since. Can go well in this off of top weight.
Each Way Value Bets of the Day
Our each way bets are horses at decent prices (5/1+) we think can go close to winning.
Leopardstown 3.05 Mighty Concorde 7/1 View BetTurtle Racecard
Been placed in last 6 races, so a confident choice for a place. However, with Bryan Cooper in the saddle the hope is he can go one better.
Back or Lay Tips
We review the chances of today's short priced runners with a view to backing or laying them. Our NAP is the bet we are most confident with and NB is our next best selection at prices better than odds on. The Lay Of The Day is the horse we think represents poor value and has the most realistic chance of being beaten today.

Beat market rival Secret Door last time and can do so again.
BACK Sandown 1:15 Peace And Co (FR) 1/2 View BetTurtle Racecard
Went to fast for own good at Cheltenham last time, but has huge potential and should return to form here.

Has won 3 from 3 over hurdles and should make it 4/4.
BACK Wetherby 2:10 Tomngerry (IRE) 6/4 View BetTurtle Racecard
Has impressed in two bumpers and can win on hurdling debut.
LAY Lingfield 2:55 Festive Fare 6/4 View BetTurtle Racecard

4 from 4 at course and can make it 5 from 5 today.
BACK Leopardstown 4:15 On The Fringe (IRE) 5/4 View BetTurtle Racecard
