Away from the main ITV races, 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.

16:25 @ Haydock – BRAGANZA BAY (17/2)
Trainer: Henry Daly
Jockey: Richard Patrick
Braganza Bay took advantage of a career low mark at Huntingdon last time and stayed on strongly on the run in to just outfox The Wise Traveller. Richard Patrickhas won on him before and he is once again in the saddle this afternoon. The form of his last race is already beginning to work out well as Tiny Tantrum who finished in behind the selection has come out to win again since and Richardson who was also behind has also been placed subsequently. Braganza Breeze actually stays further than this so plenty of use is likely to be made of him. In a race where many have questions to answer, he looks sure to go close for Henry Daly.
16:30 @ Fairyhouse – FAVORI DE CHAMPDOU (11/2)
Trainer: Gordon Elliott
Jockey: Corey McGivern
Favori De Champdou takes a big dip in grade following his exertions in the Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham a few weeks ago. Prior to being pulled up in that race, he looked a promising sort. Now that he is back on home soil we can expect an improved performance under seven-pound claimer Corey McGivern. He has had some relief from the Irish handicapper and is back on a more realistic mark. He has the soft underfoot conditions that he relishes and he has run well at this track previously three times in bumpers. The past three winners of this race all ran within the previous three weeks and he fits that profile. A big run looks assured for an in-form yard.
17:00 @ Haydock – SPARK OF MADNESS (9/2)
Trainer: Lucinda Russell
Jockey: Stephen Mulqueen
Spark Of Madness may well have found the soft ground to his disadvantage when last seen at Ayr back in November. He remains only two pounds higher than his most recent win and Stephen Mulqueen is once again in the plate. The step up to two-and-a-half miles seems to have worked the oracle for this Lucinda Russell trained seven-year-old and with the ground back in his favour today, he should be seen to much better effect. He has won at this level twice in the past so there should be no shocks in the shape of the opposition that he faces. A big run is on the cards and he should not be underestimated.
17:05 @ Fairyhouse – JAZZY MATTY (5/1)
Trainer: Gordon Elliott
Jockey: Mikey O’Sullivan
Jazzy Matty looks to follow up his Cheltenham Festival success with another win here at Fairyhouse. The four-year-old son of Doctor Dino was last successful over this course and distance back in December and he still remains fairly unexposed. Gordon Elliott took this with the similarly lightly weighted Glan last season and Mikey O’Sullivan once again partners the improving youngster. Unbelievably, he is only raised two pounds for the win in the Boodles Handicap Hurdle and with underfoot conditions once again in his favour, he is more than capable of making his presence felt.
