Not a regular punter? Here's a simple bet which could net you some of the bookies' money.

There are two horses screaming out to me so I'm advising a double on the Willie Mullins' duo.

Felix Yonger, JLT Novice Chase (Willie Mullins)

At a preview night last week, Tony Mullins said this guy is a future Gold Cup winner and was his bet of the week. Will love the change in the ground conditions. Spanked Trifolium in Navan in December on good ground and he was third in the Arkle on Tuesday. Mullins can win the opener for the third day running.

Odds: 7/2

 

Annie Power, Ladbrokes World Hurdle (Willie Mullins)

The star mare has never tasted defeat in 10 runs and most of these have been bloodless victories. Has the likes of Zarkandar in her pocket on form this year. Four-time winner Big Bucks looks the main danger but he didn't look himself on his return and he has to concede 7lb to Annie Power because of her sex allowance.

Odds: 6/

Odds on the double: 10/1
