All of today’s selections look to be in good form 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.

1-20 @ Leopardstown – GOOD LAND (5/2)
It was hard not to be impressed with GOOD LAND last time out and he really does look a potential stayer in the making. Sandor Clegane has always been held in high regard and looks the main threat with Grangeclare West having to atone for a particularly poor run last time. Weveallbeencaught needs to improve again, but you couldn’t rule out a big run from Deep Cave who could well be anything for Henry De Bromhead.
2-30 @ Leopardstown – APPRECIATE IT (7/4)
APPRECIATE IT looks to be the most trustworthy of these novice chasers. A class act in his own right, he has only met with defeat on two of his last eight starts and both of those came at Cheltenham. He knows every blade of grass around this track having won here four times in the past. He has the potential to be a Gold Cup horse next season although perhaps Punchestown version would suit him better. Dysart Dynamo failed to give his running in two Championship races last year whilst Banbridge and El Fabiolo are open to further improvement. Willie Mullins knows the type of horse it takes to win this and with Paul Townend having his pick, Appreciate It is taken to extend his unbeaten run over fences.
3-40 @ Leopardstown – GROZNI (9/1)
GROZNI is proven at three miles and he comes here on good terms with himself. The Charles Byrnes runner was most recently successful in a novice hurdle at Leicester. He gets in here unpunished for that win so is in effect six pounds well in. He gets in near the foot of the handicap and handily receives weight from a host of more fancied rivals. His jockey has won on him three times previously and they have to be shortlist material in this competitive handicap.
4:10 @ Leopardstown – FINAL ORDERS (3/1)
FINAL ORDERS has endured a long and busy season. He has really taken to the larger fences and racked up a fourth win in a row by scoring over this course and distance when last seen on Boxing Day. Gavin Cromwell has given him a much needed break and Keith Donoghue renews his association with the seven-year-old. He remains progressive and it is unlikely that we have as yet seen the best of him.
