Boxing Day's Best Bets: Persian can be a Christmas Delight

Tippin' Jimmy gives us four to follow from the Boxing Day card.

12:35 Market Rasen - Ashkoul
Dan Skelton's hurdler has been very unlucky when second on his last two outings and deserves to get his head in front. The form of both his runner-up finishes has worked out very well and I would expect him to continue improving for today's run.

1:10 Market Rasen - Argentix
Since moving from France, Lucinda Russell's Argentix has slowly been getting the hand of things and deserves to strike off this current mark. Ideally even softer ground would've been ideal, but there should be plenty more to come and I would expect a very good performance here.

1:30 Wincanton - Persian Delight
An unexposed type who deserves to go very well is Persian Delight who runs for Colin Tizzard and Harry Cobden. He finished third on his return and should improve significantly on that inital run. He should go very well here and I expect a big run from him.

1:45 Down Royal - Minellafordollars
I am very keen on this horse who just seem to have an off day when a poor third last time out. There should be a lot more to come from him, and he certainly has the potential to do very well this season for Gordon Elliott. There should be more to come and he can run a big race today.
