We tipped up our fourth jumps NAP in a row at Warwick yesterday and we remain in the Midlands on Thursday.

Worcester hosts another afternoon of National Hunt racing and there’s an intriguing card between two former Cheltenham Festival runners.

In the battle of the former Prestbury Park appearance makers, we’re siding with Nicky Henderson’s Birchdale and keep up the good recent form of jumps NAP’s.

He flattered to deceive in two starts over fences last term, but was running over inadequate trips and given he is a former winning pointer, the step up to three-miles is sure to suit.

Aidan Coleman heads to the Midlands track solely for this ride and that could be a key factor, and after two promising runs last time out, including in the Coral Cup, he could be the value selection here over Eglantine Du Seuil.
