Racing tips: Back Walker to Excel at Yarmouth

Global Excel can atone for an odds-on reverse at Wolverhampton last month when he runs on a good card at Yarmouth.

Ed Walker’s inmate flickered promisingly in three starts last year and was heavily backed into 5-4 favouritism in a six-furlong handicap at Dunstall Park, only to finish third.

Most chatter at Yarmouth will be on Without Parole in division two of the one-mile novice stakes.

John Gosden’s colt made an explosive debut at Newcastle in December when he trounced a fair field by upwards of six lengths.

Without Parole is quoted around the 25-1 mark about winning next month’s 2000 Guineas.

Expect those odds to be significantly shorter if he does what is expected of him by the seaside.

Stormingin looks worth a play in a mile-and-a-quarter handicap at Brighton.

It will be interesting to see how he gets on under the wise tutelage of Gary Moore.

All eyes at Punchestown will be on Douvan as the eight-year-old attempts to show he retains plenty of spark in the BoyleSports Champion Chase.

Getabird is hard to oppose in the Herald Champion Novice Hurdle after he put a disappointing display at Cheltenham behind him in winning at Fairyhouse.

Monalee only found the superb Presenting Percy too good in the RSA Chase at Cheltenham and can go one better in the Growise Champion Novice Chase.
