Our tipster hasn’t travelled far from home for this weekends racing as we’ve sent her to Newcastle to cover the Fighting Fifth Hurdle. But before we get down to business with that race, she’s taken a look at the other cards on offer and picked out her top bets.

In the opening race of the card at Newbury, my pick of the bunch is Cap Soleil. Heading into this race with victories in his last four appearances including last time out on this course, he should have the know how to pass the post first here.

I’ve got another one here for you at Newbury, and if you follow my tips, you’ll remember I picked out Black Corton two weeks ago. Having won three times already this season, I’d put money on him picking up another here.

My final tip from Newbury comes in the Ladbrokes Trophy – the highlight race on the card – and I’ve gone for Nicky Henderson-trained Whisper. A 7/1 chance here, he will be looking to build on his strong start to the season, and add another victory to his tally.

Now, it’s off to Newcastle and boy is it cold here, but that’s not going to stop me heading off to the Fighting Fifth meeting.

My first tip on the Newcastle card comes in the 1:05, and it’s Senor Lombardy. A 5/2 chance, he comes into this race looking for a hat-trick, and in a field of this calibre, I think he should pick up the victory.

My second choice at Newcastle appeals to my inner rock as 3/1 shot Acdc takes the track in the 1:35. A winner last time out at Ayr, he will be looking to add to his record here.

The highlight race on the card at Newcastle is, of course, the Fighting Fifth Hurdle, and this year it looks to be Buveur D’air’s for the taking. I don’t think Nicky Henderson would have sent him this far north if he didn’t think he could win, and priced at 2/9 the bookmakers also think that.
