Ante-post gamble LONGHOUSE POET is fancied to reward supporters in the Goffs Thyestes Handicap Chase (3.05) at Gowran Park.

Around 25-1 last week, Martin Brassil's charge is right towards the top of the market for the €100,000 contest.

And he has the form from novice company to go close off mark of 145 in a race like this.

Run Wild Fred, the National Hunt Chase favourite, was one of the horses he defeated at the longest trip he had tried over fences on heavy ground.

That marked him down as a stayer to follow, while he also finished runner-up to Janidil, who added a Grade 1 to his record subsequently.

There is plenty more to come from the selection and he appeared as though his reappearance run would do him the world of good.

Closer to home, STRAITOUTTACOMPTON is the BetYourWay At Betway Handicap (4.00) pick at Southwell.

Trevor Whelan's mount is 3lb below his last winning rating and he has had two runs at the track following a break.

He made late headway into sixth place last time, suggesting he may be creeping into form – and importantly he has won four races at this venue.

Upped in trip he is most interesting and now he has gained valuable experience of the newly installed surface, it may well be the time to catch him.
