Owen Goulding bids for a super Sunday with enormous 50-1 tip

Apple's Jade wins the Hatton's Grace at Fairyhouse

It’s certainly not going to be a sleepy Sunday, with five meetings to get stuck into. Southwell, Market Rasen, Plumpton, Cork and Fairyhouse are the the hosts on a simply packed Easter Sunday of non-stop action.

With a whopping 38 races to sift through, there’s no shortage of opportunities to find some big-priced selections. I’ve taken a look through all of the races and have my sights set on a 50-1 runner at Fairyhouse. All our horse racing tips are on site now, but find my reasoning for this monster selection below!

No Caution Needed

Winning five times on the flat for Gavin Cromwell, Cautious Approach has all the potential to make a useful handicap hurdler. Rated 77 at her peak, she should be competitive off marks of 120 and above. With that in mind, she is surely be up to taking a maiden event for her connections.

She was sent off just 15/2 for her hurdling debut at Gowran Park in an admittedly weak contest, beaten 158 lengths in the end. Granted, that’s far from positive, but heavy ground was seemingly the cause of the poor performance in a race that simply fell to pieces. On the level, all her best form came on better surfaces, winning on “Good to Yielding” back in 2019, the worst ground she’s performed on. A daughter of Dawn Approach, it’s no surprise that’s the worst ground she’d want.

The ground at Fairyhouse is currently “Yielding”, with sunshine and dry conditions expected overnight. That will bring the ground into the perfect window for her. Another big positive is the exceptional form of Gavin Cromwell, who has enjoyed five winners from his last 20 runners. Conor McNamara takes over too and his three-pound claim is always invaluable.

Beyond the front three in the market, this isn’t a strong maiden contest. Winning over 1m 4f on the level, she should have the perfect mix of speed and stamina for this trip over timber. She should leave her hurdling debut well behind and if she can run to the level of her flat form, she won’t be far off the principles at a huge price.
