Sunday's Carlisle tips

12.50 Grove Road, 13.25 Iron Bridge, 13.58 Serious Ego, 14.30 Corach Rambler, 15.05 Navajo Pass, 15.40 Houston Texas, 16.13 Fuji Rocks

14.30 Corach Rambler - Carlisle

Corach Rambler can get his season off to a perfect start in the Colin Parker Memorial Intermediate Chase at Carlisle.

Lucinda Russell's charge enjoyed a swift rise through the ranks last term, making great strides from an initial chase third at Perth to register a wide-margin victory at Aintree before following up at Cheltenham in December.

The eight-year-old then shouldered top weight in the Classic Chase at Warwick and while not disgraced in fourth, he never looked like getting involved in what clearly proved a test too far for a novice runner.

A planned confidence booster at Ascot in February did not go to plan either as he unshipped his rider five fences from home, but a trip to the Cheltenham Festival confirmed all his early promise as he made up plenty of late ground to grab Grade Three gold in the Ultima, looking a likely staying star for this season.

He has a bit to find with Millers Bank here, but that rival's jumping has let him down on more than one occasion, so preference is for the largely consistent Corach Rambler.

15.05 Navajo Pass - Carlisle

Navajo Pass can claim his first success since shocking Buveur D'Air in a Champion Hurdle trial back in February 2021 as he lines up in the DMB Building Ltd Handicap Hurdle.

Donald McCain's charge was firmly on an upward swing when he defeated the dual Cheltenham champion at Haydock, seeing his rating boosted to 156.

However, the fact he lines up here off 128 illustrates his poor run of form subsequently, falling in a Grade Three at Aintree in the spring as the culmination of six luckless runs.

Navajo Pass showed some of his old sparkle when hacking up by nearly 10 lengths on the level at Haydock earlier this month and that run could set him up nicely in this two-and-a-half-mile affair.

13.25 Iron Bridge - Carlisle

Iron Bridge can extend his perfect record to four wins in as many runs in the Gordon Richards Novices' Limited Handicap Chase.

A Tipperary bumper scorer in March 2021 when trained by Damian Murphy, Iron Bridge switched to Jonjo O'Neill last term to win both his hurdles starts - at Ffos Las in October and then Worcester in April.

He strolled home by 22 lengths on the latter occasion, but like so many of the runners to have donned the famous Hemmings silks, Iron Bridge has looked a real chasing prospect all the way through and he can make an immediate impact.
