Perth Racecourse

Among the racing action on Thursday is a jumps card from Perth, where seven races are set to take place from 13:50-17:20 on ground forecast to be 'Soft' - but the sun is out so it could dry up a bit.

Our Perth Tips includes a pair trained by Willie Mullins, who is on the brink of winning the British Jump Trainers' Championship.

Perth Tips

  • 15:35 - Milo Lises @ 9/4
  • 16:10 - Feu Du Bresil @ 5/2
  • 17:20 - Coeur Aimant @ 17/2

15:35 - Milo Lises @ 9/4

Willie Mullins will have two runners at Perth on Wednesday and both have big claims. The first runs in the 2m4f handicap hurdle and MILO LISES should take all the beating.

Second to subsequent dual Grade 1-placed Predators Gold in a Punchestown bumper 12 months ago, the five-year-old struggled on his first three starts over hurdles, but was sent off a 2/1 chance when disappointing behind Mistergif at Limerick in January.

He improved markedly at Punchestown (2m½f, heavy) when winning there in February, and now ventures into a winnable handicap off a mark of 128. He should be hard to beat.

16:10 - Feu Du Bresil @ 5/2

Moving on to the 2m4f handicap chase for horses rated 0-150, and Donald McCain's A Different Kind could be a tough nut to crack bidding for a five-timer. He has gone up 20lb though and will have the burden of 12 stone to carry here.

It might be worth siding with Mullins' FEU DU BRESIL in the familiar Ricci colours. The nine-year-old made a terrible mistake four from home and was pulled up before the last in a 2m Listed handicap chase at Gowran Park last month.

He was only beaten half a length behind stablemate Mister Policeman on chasing bow over 2m½f at Fairyhouse in November. That horse is now rated 149 over fences so if Feu Du Bresil can recapture that form, he looks chucked in here off 137.

17:20 - Coeur Aimant @ 17/2

Closing out a cracking card is the 2m handicap hurdle and down at the foot of the weights COEUR AIMANT has solid credentials if he can put his best foot forward.

The nine-year-old was sent chasing in November but it hasn't worked out at all, running dismally on all four starts over larger obstacles. It's a positive move by connections to send him back over hurdles on that evidence.

Couer Aimant finished second in a 2m Uttoxeter handicap off 2lb higher on his first start for Lizzie Quinlan last summer and was a respectable fourth at Catterick a month later.

He hasn't been seen over hurdles since but a return to this sphere could be the answer and he will receive lumps of weight from the entire field. He's worth a small investment.
