Away from the main ITV Racing tips action, our accumulators and festivals tipster Karl Hedley has selected four runners for consideration in a Lucky 15 tips preview. A Lucky 15 bet involves 15 bets across four different selections. Your bets are 4 single bets, 6 doubles, 4 trebles, and 1 four-fold accumulator. Due to single bets being included, one winning selection is enough to trigger a payout to give you something of a lift.
All of today’s selections look to be in with decent chances and, with a bit of luck, they can find their way to the winners’ enclosure. So, read on for the best value Lucky 15 tips across the meetings from the UK and Ireland.

17:25 Worcester – Tiger Orchid (11/2)
Trainer: Richard Newland
Jockey: Charlie Hammond
Tiger Orchid is taken to build on what was his seasonal reappearance at Ludlow just a few weeks ago. In what was his first outing in almost six months, the eight-year-old gelding struggled to keep tabs on his rivals. With the cobwebs now fully blown away, he should be seen to much better effect this afternoon. Returning to one of his favourite tracks where he has won twice and been placed from four runs is another reason to add him to the bet. The ground being on the firm side will suit him better than the soft ground he ran on recently. Likely to make a bold attempt at getting his summer campaign up and running.
18:50 Stratford – Presenting Yeats (2/1)
Trainer: Milton Harris
Jockey: Harry Cobden
Presenting Yeats needs to dramatically improve on what we saw from him on his seasonal reappearance given that he seemed reluctant to race and then spilt Harry Cobden out of the saddle in the run-up to the second hurdle. Much schooling is likely to have taken place in the subsequent weeks and he is surely worth another chance in this low-grade affair. His customary visor and tongue-tie are back on this evening and this out-and-out stayer can get back to winning ways. Harry Cobden has not been deterred as he comes back to ride him for the second time and with the trip and ground firmly in their favour, he is shortlist material. A lot of his rivals here also have question marks hanging over them, but if fully over his blip from last time, he ought to be capable of taking this.
19:10 Lingfield – Gone (3/1)
Trainer: Charlie Johnson
Jockey: Neil Callan
Gone made it a third win in just six starts when stepping back up to a mile at Carlisle and although now reverting back to seven furlongs, she is clearly in the form of her life. Expected to be up with the pace throughout, her proven stamina can kick into play in the closing stages. Not many in this race look to be anywhere near the top of their game at the minute so Charlie Johnston seems to have placed her well. Neil Callan is an unusual booking for the Middleham-based trainer but it has to be viewed as a positive given he too is riding well at this time. The pair are entitled to plenty of respect and should go well here.
19:20 Stratford – Blaze A Trail (7/2)
Trainer: John Flint
Jockey: Connor Brace
Blaze A Trail notched up a sequence of wins last season and completed a five-timer at Fontwell on what was his final appearance last October. Whilst he has shown winning form the first time out in previous seasons, the nine-year-old gelding has never been in such a rich vein of form. He is clearly improving and is taken to pick up from where he left off last season. He loves Stratford and has won over the course and distance previously. He has also won here on another two occasions over different trips. Connor Brace has partnered him to each of those last five wins and John Flint has once again opted to keep things very much the same. He will be very hard to keep out of the frame.
