Away from the main ITV races, our accumulators and festivals tipster Karl Hedley has selected four runners for consideration in a Lucky 15. 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 pay-out to give you something of a lift. Two selections just got pipped at the post last week so all being well a change in fortune is due.
All of today’s selections look to be well handicapped 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

13:45 Lingfield – TADREEB (15/2)
Tadreeb is without a win since last March but he is now back to the same handicap mark that he last won off and he returns to his favourite venue here at Lingfield. The run behind Tyger Bay here last time came on the back of a near five-month absence, so he is fully entitled to strip a bit fitter today and no surprise if he managed to turn the tables on that rival who was beaten off a lower mark just the other day. William Carson is the only jockey to have won on Tadreeb since the five-year-old left the care of Mark and Charlie Johnston. He is more than capable of finding his way back to the winners’ enclosure and he is worth a second look here.
14:12 Fairyhouse – MT LEINSTER (11/2)
Mt Leinster looks to have a solid chance in the main race of the day at Fairyhouse. The Willie Mullins trained nine-year-old is perfectly entitled to come on in leaps and bounds from his seasonal reappearance at here just last month where he found the re-opposing Sil Ver Klass a bit too tough to crack. With question marks now looming over that old foe, he is expected to turn the tables on the Tony Martin runner. Mt Leinster is a previous course and distance winner here and won’t mind the soft ground that is on offer. Willie Mullins has taken this prize three times since 2006 and no great surprises should this son of Beat Hollow get the better of his rivals.
15:07 Wetherby – GRANGE RANGER (15/2)
Grange Ranger was upped in class last time and just couldn’t live with his rivals over this course and distance. Connections clearly feel that he was clearly out of his depth and they have dropped him back in grade once more. He is a frequent visitor to this track and must know every inch of grass on it. Emma Smith-Chaston has won on him before and it has to be of note that she replaces Jack Hogan today. Although now an eleven-year-old Grange Ranger appreciates every inch of this three-mile trip these days and he wont mind running on this soft ground. He has to be given another chance to redeem himself today.
15:30 Lingfield – BEAU GESTE (6/1)
Beau Geste has run here a couple of times in the past and on both occasions, he ran with credit. This looks to be his easiest opportunity to get a win on the board for the first time since July 2021. His handicap mark has fallen to a lowly 49 and he has won of an eight-pound higher mark in the past. He has actually won following similar breaks in the past too so fitness should not be a cause for concern. Molly Gunn takes a more that useful seven-pounds off his back also so he will appreciate the weight concession he receives from most of the other rivals. In what looks a perfectly winnable race, he looks to hold stronger claims than most.
