There are four Sunday meetings in Britain and Ireland and, following the end of the Flat campaigns on Saturday, it's National Hunt fare all the way.

Navan (12.00-15.50) gets the ball rolling, with further cards at Stratford (12.20-16.10), Sandown (12.40-16.00) and Ffos Las (13.07-16.25).

Sunday's horse racing predictions

The Future Stars Intermediate Chase at Sandown and the Fortia Chase at Navan are amongst the features races on Sunday's programme and we've got three selections to follow.

14:10 Navan

A Plus Tard to win and each-way - BET NOW

A certain sign of winter's onset is when the big-name jumps stars begin to emerge on a steady basis. At Navan, it will be Henry De Bromhead's A Plus Tard that captures most of the attention when he bids for a winning start to the new term in the Grade 2 Fortria Chase, run over two miles, in the careful hands of regular partner Rachel Blackmore.

The Cheveley Park-owned runner remains most famous for his demolition job in the Listed Close Brothers Novices' Handicap Chase at last year's Cheltenham Festival, a virtuoso display that garnered lots of headlines.

He could only manage second in this contest 12 months ago on his seasonal return but that was a stronger renewal, with Ballyoisin scoring and the likes of Arkle winner Duc Des Genievres behind.

He made up for that with a 2m1f soft-ground Grade 1 win at Leopardstown over Christmas, lowering the colours of Chacun Pour Soi no less. He was a beaten favourite in the Ryanair at Cheltenham in March, going down fighting in third less than two lengths behind Min. 

He drops in trip on return to action and, in this lesser field, is primed to go one better than in 2019.

14:25 Sandown

If The Cap Fits to win and each-way - BET NOW

There's just a trio of runners in the Future Stars Intermediate Chase and Harry Fry will be hoping If The Cap Fits can emulate the likes of Santini, victorious last season before finishing a close second in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, by capturing this race en route to bigger things.

The Simon Munir and Isaac Suede-owned eight-year-old was the best of these over hurdles, tasting three-mile Grade 1 glory at Aintree in 2019 when he fended off Roksana and Apple's Jade in a humdinger. 

He made the perfect start to his chasing career at Ffos Las in October, despatching Fiddlerontheroof and Emitom with an absolute minimum of fuss.

He looks one to follow this season and there are no doubts over this longer trip. His younger rivals must concede him weight and it looks a thankless task on paper.

15:25 Ffos Las

Out The Glen to win and each-way - BET NOW

Out The Glen returned to action with a clear second over C&D last month under Paddy Brennan and, despite this being a classier event, may build on that run.

He was a dual hurdles winner in 2019 at 2m4f/3m1f and acts on any ground. The course winner came more than three lengths clear of the third here 21 days ago but couldn't get to the progressive winner Memphis Bell, who has won again since at Newton Abbot to complete a four-timer under another 7lb rise.

This seven-year-old is not yet fully exposed and, up 3lb in the ratings, should be in the mix despite the higher grade with Brennan on board again.
