Despite Clonmel's jumps card falling victim to the weather, there are still three meetings planned in England on Thursday, including Wetherby's seven-race jumps offering.

The ground is expected to be soft for the opener at 14:10 and all three of our tips run in the opening three contests.

Wetherby betting tips

  • 14:10 - Goldwyn @ 11/8
  • 14:45 - Made for You @ 7/4
  • 15:20 - Royal Mer @ 5/4

14:10 - Goldwyn @ 11/8

Mark Walford has yet to help GOLDWYN win a race since taking him under his wing in January, but he has brought an improvement out of the seven-year-old.

Goldwyn had previously raced out of Jonathan Fogarty's stable, but two third-placed finishes at Navan and Thurles were the best he had to offer.

Since switching to Walford's yard he has finished third and second, with his first outing coming at Wetherby.

Thursday's race does not look that competitive and Goldwyn should have enough to see off this field, with Jamie Hamilton aboard for the third successive race.

14:45 - Made for You @ 7/4

Only five runners will contest the Every Race Live on Racing TV Selling Hurdle, and favourite MADE FOR YOU looks made for this battle.

Olly Murphy's runner produced a flat performance last time out at Sandown, but Thursday's race is in far calmer waters.

The step up in trip should suit him, while the addition of blinkers should ensure that he is fully focused on the task at hand.

15:20 - Royal Mer @ 5/4

A drop down to 2m did little to dissuade ROYAL MER as he took out a Handicap Chase at Leicester earlier in the month and his resulting 6lb raise seems anything but insurmountable approaching this 1m7f Handicap Chase.

The six-year-old has become a reliable option among David Pipe's string, recording wins over further at Ffos Las and Leicester prior to that victorious return to the East Midlands track, and a fourth victory of the season could beckon.

Harry Cobden was on board last time, but those previous triumphs came in the capable hands of Thursday's rider, Jack Tudor, who boasts a 21% strike rate over the course of the last fortnight and clearly has a feeling for the grey gelding.

Previous C&D scorer Beat The Edge deserves respect, but Pipe and Tudor seem to have a good thing going with this son of Montmartre and his record this season suggests that the 20-day turnaround is enough to keep him fit, while also restoring freshness.
