13:50 (Perth) Fox’s Fancy

Lucinda Russell has enjoyed another good season numerically and Fox’s Fancy can atone for a near-miss last time out in the Hot To Trot Racing Goes North Mares’ “National Hunt” Maiden Hurdle.

Time In The Sun fell among handicap hurdle company last start and was second at Wincanton in a prior outing so should be considered along with Queshi Bridge who holds each-way claims with two placings from past three outings.


15:35 (Perth) Milo Lises

Milo Lises has been given a short freshen since a narrow success at Punchestown among maiden hurdle company.

Switching to handicaps gives the Willie Mullins-trained five-year-old a top chance in the Ak Bets Big Prices Big Limits Handicap Hurdle.

Rafferty's Return won twice past three outings including a comfortable Newcastle success. In excellent order and may still be competitive off current mark.

Rambo T carries top weight. Racing against considerably tougher competition last few months with credit and better is expected.

Champagnesuperover holds each-way claims returning after a long lay-off.


16:10 (Perth) Sure Touch


Sure Touch looks like Sean Bowen's best chance of bagging a winner in the Phil Nelson River Tay Handicap Chase.

It is a really competitive five-runner field with top weight A Different Kind setting a good standard off a mark of 145, looking for a fifth win in a row for Donald McCain.

But Olly Murphy’s Sure Touch is seeking a hat-trick of his own following wins at Uttoxeter and Taunton.

The first win came on heavy ground and the latter on good, so he is obviously versatile in that regard and employed different tactics both days.

Cepage is down to his last winning mark and Willie Mullins runs Feu Du Bresil, but Sure Touch has plenty going for him.


16:45 (Perth) Secret Trix

In the AK Bets Best Price Premier League Handicap Hurdle, Murphy and Bowen team up with Secret Trix who has been thoroughly consistent all year.

He has won four times and been second twice and seemingly does not know how to run a bad race.

Having won a class two last time out he is actually dropping in grade for this event and given that was his first run for five months, he may even come on a bit.


Perth tips in full:

PERTH: 1.50 Fox’s Fancy, 2.25 What A Jonny, 3.00 Event Of Sivola, 3.35 Milo Lises, 4.10 Sure Touch, 4.45 Secret Trix, 5.20 Agilulf.
