(Please be aware selections could become non-runners after article's first publication)


13:50 (Perth) Dr Eggman

Dr Eggman looks to turn consistent performances into wins in the Download The Ak Bets App Maiden Hurdle.

The combination of Willie Mullins and Paul Townend have been on fire recently and the six-year-old gelding has been brought over by Mullins as he attempts to claim the UK Trainer's Championship. 

Dr Eggman was last seen finishing fourth in a competitive maiden hurdle at Naas, and prior to that he made the frame in three consecutive starts

Considering his recent form a maiden succes can't be too far away.


14:55 (Perth) Loughglynn

Loughglynn aims for another Mullins victory in the British EBF Gold Castle ‘National Hunt’ Novices’ Hurdle at Perth.

The Closutton powerhouse had a four-timer at Ayr on Saturday to maintain his assault at the top of the Trainer's Championship standings, mainly thanks to Macdermott’s success in the Coral Scottish Grand National.

He travels further north on Wednesday as Loughglynn hopes to improve on his third in a Group Two at Fairyhouse in March.

Sounds Russian should be prominent for Ruth Jefferson, with Brian Hughes on board in the six-horse contest over three miles, but the Irish raider is preferred.


15:25 (Perth) Instit

Instit could make it more Mullins success in the Robertson Homes Fair Maid Of Perth Mares’ Chase.

The six-year-old has not been in the winner’s enclosure for more than a year, but has been knocking on the door this season, including a good second at Fairyhouse last month and she also lost out to Limerick Lace at the Cheltenham Festival.

She faces tough opposition in the six-horse field, with Gordon Elliott’s charge Riviere D’etel, Malina Girl for Gavin Cromwell and Juniper – trained by Anthony Honeyball – all battling for victory, while Apple Away and Aubis Walk complete the line-up.


15:55 (Perth) Sword Of Fate

Sword Of Fate is aiming to go one better than last year’s second when returning for the Phil Nelson Capercaillie Handicap Chase.

Last time out he never troubled the leading pack at Wetherby and two starts ago, he made the frame at the Yorkshire course.

Returning to the venue of his last victory in August, the Leonard Kerr-trained 11-year-old should feel at home over two miles at Britain’s northernmost track.


Perth selections in full:

Perth: 13:50 Dr Eggman, 14:20 Carrigeen Castle, 14:55 Loughglynn, 15:25 Instit, 15:55 Sword Of Fate, 16:25 Sunday Soldier, 16:55 Topkapi Star.
