ITV Racing tips: one key runner from each of the ten races on ITV4 on Sunday

1 of 1

1.10 Leopardstown
Irish Stallion Farms EBF Paddy Mullins Mares Handicap Hurdle, 2m2f

There is €100,000 on offer in the opener, in which Willie Mullins looks to hold the aces. Dysart Diamond is three from four this season and Lady Breffni broke her maiden in impressive style last time. Tellmesomethinggirl is not without a chance for Henry de Bromhead and neither is Mrs Milner, who is a model of consistency for Paul Nolan.


Has been keeping good company this season, capable of a bold showing in her first handicap

1.40 Leopardstown
Tattersalls Ireland Spring Juvenile Hurdle,2m, Grade 1

Quilixios has the opportunity to put down his marker for the Triumph Hurdle, but has not been seen since winning at Down Royal in October. Youmdor looked the winner heading to the final hurdle on his last start before crashing out and is a worthy challenger.The others, including Saint Sam, Bussleton and Ha D'or, have something to find on form.


Last-flight faller at Fairyhouse when bidding to make it 2-2; the main danger to Quilixios

1.55 Musselburgh
bet365 Scottish Triumph Hurdle,1m7½f, Listed

An intriguing Listed contest in which Fiveandtwenty sets the standard with two course-and-distance wins to her name already this season. Two smart Flat recruits in Wise Glory and Carlos Felix look her biggest dangers, but Historic Heart has experience on his side and finished second behind the top-class Adagio last time.


Progressive on the Flat for the Crisfords and could have big say on hurdle/stable debut

2.10 Leopardstown
Chanelle Pharma Novice Hurdle,2m, Grade 1

Appreciate It looks to follow up his convincing Grade 1 success over course and distance last time and will be short odds to do so. Master McShee looks to land a blow in the big league for small-scale trainer Paddy Corkery. Blue Lord found Bob Olinger too strong last time but is unexposed after just two starts in Ireland.


Shows every sign of developing into a top-class hurdler, sets a very high standard

2.25 Musselburgh
bet365 Scottish Stayers Novices' Hurdle, 3m

Another competitive contest with any number of likely candidates, Threeunderthrufive is three from four and looks progressive for Paul Nicholls but Fantastikas has been knocking on the door for some time now and looks a big rival. The Golden Rebel arrives in top form after his win at Doncaster and Born Patriot is unexposed after just two starts in Ireland for trainer Peter Fahey.


Heavy-ground bumper winner who made it 2-2 over hurdles at Ludlow last time out in November. Had a solid yardstick about 5l behind in second and he's been strong at the finish in his races, providing optimism regarding this step up in trip, major player

2.40 Leopardstown
William Fry Handicap Hurdle, 3m

A huge field in which Damalisque could prove to be the handicap blot as he makes a quick reappearance after a dominant win at Navan late last month. This will be much tougher with Pure Genius, Dandy Mag and Unexpected Dearth all looking serious challengers. Mention must be made of The Jam Man, who scooped a big handicap over fences in November but needs to bounce back after disappointing in a Haydock Grade 3 last time.


Won as he liked when stepped up in trip at Punchestown, could be a progressive stayer

2.55 Musselburgh
Pertemps Network Group Handicap Hurdle,3m2f

Prince Kayf is two from three and yet to finish outside the first two for Keith Dalgliesh but faces a couple of talentedand experienced rivals in Keeper Hill and Chapel Stile, who has bottomless stamina. Nikgarde looks intriguing for James Ewert but the once-classy Mount Mews needs tobounce back from a poor run at Kempton last time.


Unraced beyond 2m5f but the step up in trip is well worth a go; one to consider

3.10 Leopardstown
Flogas Novice Chase, 2m5½f, Grade 1

Monkfish has been imperious over fences so far and has an opportunityto snare another big prize. Old rival Latest Exhibition needs to find more to reverse the form with the favourite, but Andy Dufresne remains unexposed and could yet take another big step forward. Asterion Forlonge needs to leave his jumping woes behind him and the remaining five need to find a lot more to compete with the favourites.


Nothing short of a joy to watch over fences thus far and should be extremely hard to beat

3.25 Musselburgh
bet365 Scottish Supreme Novices' Hurdle,1m7½f

Third Time Lucki is held in the highest regard by trainer Dan Skelton. Bareback Jack is undefeatedfor Donald McCain and may present the biggest challenge. However,Sexant was rated 108 on the Flat for Sir Michael Stoute and impressed on his hurdles debut at Carlisle in December.


3-4 over hurdles and has the best form

3.40 Leopardstown
Paddy Power Irish Gold Cup, 3m½f, Grade 1

One of the crown jewels of Irish racing and it boasts an excellent cast this year. Minella Indo needs to bounce back after falling in the Savills Chase over the festive period, where Kemboy was second ahead of stablemate Melon. Delta Work was another not to complete in the Savills but won this last year and has the benefit of regular rider Jack Kennedy back in the saddle.


Good opportunity to make amends for fall in Savills Chase won by stablemate A Plus Tard
