Simply guess the winner of four chosen races for your chance to claim the cash. Here are Alan Alger's top racing tips to get you started...
TOP PICK: CALVINIST
Second choice: Scrafton
We start the competition with a Betway-sponsored staying handicap for lower-class horses on the All-Weather at Wolves.
Likely favourite Galileo’s Spear might be inconvenienced by dropping back in distance and clearly would be suited by 2m and above.
CALVINIST is a really interesting contender for this race.
He just failed when upped to a 2m trip here last time out but drops back to a more suitable 1m 6f distance here.
He is one of the best horses in a race of limited quality and should take advantage.
TOP PICK: RONS DREAM
Second choice: Baie Des Iles
The big race of the day: the Welsh Grand National.
Historically, this isn’t a race to get bogged down in trends and patterns, with horses within wide ranges of ages, weights and prices all winning over the last decade.
RONS DREAM was a beaten favourite at Carlisle last time out, although that was over an inadequate trip.
Before that, she won at Perth at the end of last season and Market Rasen at the start of this one.
Her stable have targeted this race for her.
TOP PICK: KILCREA VALE
Second choice: Springtown Lake
This is a handicap chase where all scheduled runners have a good chance and it’s hard to eliminate any from our enquiries.
Two towards the head of the market take my eye.
Springtown Lake is stepping up to 3m for the first time since his Point debut, but should cope with it based on that evidence.
KILCREA VALE was a beaten favourite last time out. His trainer Nicky Henderson has won this race twice in the last decade and looks to have another live contender with this smart eight-year-old.
TOP PICK: EDDIEMAURICE
Second choice: Jacbequick
This handicap hurdle can go to the John Flint inmate EDDIEMAURICE.
He hasn’t won for over two years but this drying ground could suit.
The last time he raced over hurdles and over this distance on this going he was only five lengths away from Verdana Blue, who won the big hurdles race at the meeting yesterday.
That’s good form and we could see a lot more from him with everything in place for a big run.
