SUN Racing is back to give you some insight on big horses at even bigger prices.

Here, we try to find the value bets which could net you a tasty return from a small stake this Monday.


ELIXER (12.55 Catterick)

The handicapper has given this seven-year-old a chance with a 4lb drop after he took a tumble at the final fence here last time. He was just a couple of lengths behind the leader at the time.

His best efforts have come at this specialists’ track and he has every chance of hitting the frame in what looks a modest contest.

Each-way Thief

ISKABEG LANE (2.32 Catterick)

Sue Smith’s chaser came back from 17 months off with a spin around Sedgefield earlier this month.

He was a fair fifth there and should be a lot fitter for the experience. He has run well on both starts at Catterick and has dropped to 4lb below his last winning mark.
