The last day of the 2016/17 sees the end of rousing top trainer contests in England and Ireland.
Nicky Henderson leads Paul Nicholls by over £100, 000 in England and Altior will probably clinch the title for him at Sandown this afternoon if Josses Hill has not already struck.
A heart stopping day ahead at Punchestown. Willie Mullins started the meeting £400,000 behind Gordon Elliott but has amazingly pulled himself back into a narrow lead.
However, Elliott has a hot favourite in the first of two grade 1's in Apples Jade which could put him back in the lead.
That will mean that everything rests on the final grade 1- Some afternoon in prospect.
On the tipping front
KSTIPS clients had a mega win in last year's Bet 365 Cup at Sandown with The Young Master. Back him for a repeat in today's race and have a saver on his stable mate The Druids Nephew.
