IS 13 going to be unlucky? That is the question for today's star attraction Douvan in the BoyleSports Tied Cottage Chase as he bids to make it an unblemished 13 since joining Willie Mullins from France.
Musselburgh hosts Cup Final, the JP McManus-owned hurdler looking to repeat his win in the Pertemps qualifier, on the second day of the track's trials weekend.
