There’s racing in the UK and Ireland on Sunday, with meetings at Chelmsford City, Navan, Southwell and Thurles. The meeting which was due to take place at Carlisle today has been abandoned owing to unfit ground.

We have tips for each of the races which do go ahead today, below.

As always, the recommendation is to play selectively in place-only markets, which has shown profit historically.

All our naps for today race in Ireland, with the best of the day given as MILSEAN (IRE) in the 2.30 at Navan for trainer Gordon Elliott and jockey Davy Russell. This one is a strong each-way chance at an early price of 15/2. With a dead 8 and three places to play for, we feel this one has the ability to win this race for in-form connections.
