There are six meetings in Britain and Ireland on Wednesday and Racing Post tipster Graeme Rodway returns with his best bets across the cards.
The Buttermere Handicap Chase (12.45) at Hexham looks like a good opportunity for BREEZE OF WIND to get back to winning ways. He has shaped like he is finding his best form recently.
Breeze Of Wind won an Irish point-to-point at this time last year and has looked better than ever since switching to chasing on his last two outings, twice running well without winning.
He made eye-catching late headway to finish third in a 2m handicap chase at Carlisle in October and was odds-on to go two better when upped to 2m5f at Sedgefield last time. However, that race became a sprint and he couldn't get to the all-the-way winner Bebside Banter.
Bebside Banter is back again here, but Breeze Of Wind has a 3lb pull in the weights for a two-and-three-quarter-length defeat and can reverse the places at this more galloping track.
The Paxtons No1 Case/IH Dealer For UK & ROI Handicap Chase (1.45) at Hexham will be a test of stamina over 3m on heavy ground and that might suit BALLYLINCH, who is a good stayer.
The Micky Hammond-trained six-year-old was no stronger than at the finish when rallying after being headed to score over 3m3f at Sedgefield in October and ran well again last time.
He was beaten 12 lengths by winner Largy Nights over the same course and distance on that occasion, but the winner looked like a smart prospect and Ballylinch was clear of the third.
The selection is able to race off the same mark here of 90, having escaped a rise for that run, and there should be plenty of further improvement to come on just his third start over fences.
The Flat takes centre stage in the evening on the all-weather at Kempton and the best bet on the card is ONE MORE WAVE, who is in the Alexander Bienz Kindred Spirit Handicap (7.00).
The gelded son of Bated Breath has recorded his two highest Racing Post Ratings over course and distance and it looks significant that he is back here on his return after a 203-day absence.
He was beaten only a length and a quarter by the classy Docklands on his first run here and pulled five lengths clear of the third when second at the track on his last start back in May.
One More Wave now switches to handicaps off what looks a potentially lenient mark of 75 (Docklands is now rated 105) and trainer Jonny Portman rarely leaves much to work on first time out. There is every chance the selection will be near to peak fitness on this reappearance.
