  2. A great days racing in store with the ITV cameras dispatched to Ascot and Haydock where the feature race at the latter track has attracted the Cheltenham Gold Cup winner A Plus Tard. The star on show at Ascot is the unbeaten Constitution Hill who will be hard to beat. The ground will ride soft on both courses. Here’s my thoughts on the seven races. Haydock 1.50 A disappointing turnout of only four once again for this 2m 5F 127 yard class 2 graduation chase that was won last year by the smart Bravemansgame. We’ve a short priced favourite again this year in the Paul Nicholls trained Hitman who is officially rated 10lb, 15lb and 16lb superior to his three rivals. He doesn’t have a very good win record having been placed on his six starts since his last win in a three runner Newbury novice chase at Newbury back in March of 2021 but this really is his to lose. He comes here on the back of a good second in the Old Roan Chase at Aintree and with conditions to suit is at prohibitive odds to back. Nick Kent’s stable star Erne River makes his seasonal debut and maybe the one to chase him home ahead of last years runner up Itchy Feet in the care of Olly Murphy and Donald McCain’s Minella Drama. Ascot 2.05 A poor turnout of five have declared for this grade two Chantelle Pharma 1965 Chase which is likely to become three with Hitman likely to run at Haydock and Do Your Job declared to run here on Friday. That’s leaves a very short price about last year’s Cheltenham Festival winner L’Homme Presse who on official ratings has 5lb in hand of Saint Calvados who is now in the ownership of David Maxwell and trained by Paul Nicholls and 14lb in hand of Evan Williams’ Coole Cody. The favourite’s trainer Venetia Williams has now gone 33 runners and 209 days since her last winner and for anyone taking a skinny price about L’Homme Presse has to be a major issue. If forced I would play small on Saint Calvados who is chaser of ability but it would be more that I wish to take the short priced favourite on with his connections badly out of form. SAINT CALVADOS 1 point win @ 17/2 BetVictor Haydock 2.25 A decent sized field of fourteen go to post for this years renewal of the Betfair Exchange Stayers’ Handicap Hurdle run over a stamina sapping 3M 58 yds. Top weight is carried by recent easy Cesarewitch winner Run For Oscar trained by master trainer Charlie Byrnes and should run well though 12 stone in very soft ground will not be easy and he’s certainly not as well handicapped over hurdles as he was on the flat and he’s overlooked. Harry Fry’s runs his smart novice Might I and he looks a definite player IF he says the three miles (he’s yet to race beyond 2M 4F)He adores the mud and bumped into the smart sorts Constitution Hill, Jonbon and Three Stripe Life last season so has to be part of my staking plan in this competitive race. Dan Skelton was talking up his mare Get A Tonic earlier in the week stating that he is ‘quite confident she will be competitive’. Sam Thomas’s Good Risk To All had Wholestone and Ailie Rose 5L behind when winning on his re-appearance at Carlisle three weeks ago and has to prove his stamina upped half a mile here. In fact the runner up Wholestone is 6lb better off for a beating of just under 5L and it wouldn’t shock me were he to turn that form around at a bumper price of 20/1+ on ground he loves. The best outsider to me is Kim Bailey’s smart chaser Imperial Echo who lost his form completely last season and reverts to hurdles here off of a handicap mark 12lb lower than his fencing one. His trainer reported that he he’s been operating on since last season when he was found to have a kissing spine. If back to somewhere near his best he’s a very big price. Wakool was mightily impressive when winning on his seasonal re-appearance at Ayr and unlike a few of these has no questions to answer regarding trip as he’s an out and out stayer and Nick Akexander’s grey should run a big race. A tough call but it’s Might I and Wakool for me each way with enhanced places. MIGHT I 1 point each way @ 9/2 William Hill 1/5 12345 WAKOOL 1 point each way @ 10/1 William Hill 1/5 12345 Ascot 2.40 This five runner 2m 31/2F Coral Hurdle features the return of the most exciting horse in training in Nicky Henderson’s Constitution Hill. Unbeaten and mightily impressive in three starts in his first season hurdling, impressing with each of his wins at Sandown twice and the Supreme Novice Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival by a staggering 22L from stable mate Jonbon (impressive chase winner earlier in week). He really does look the real deal and there will be some very long faces at Seven Barrows were he not to win this. This is a step up in trip for him but that shouldn’t be an issue at all (finished runner up in a 3M point to point). He’s officially 12lb and upwards superior to his four rivals and this is a race to watch and savour with no betting interest needed. Haydock 3.00 Five smart chasers have declared for today’s feature race The Betfair Chase run over 3m 1F 125 yards. Last year As Plus Tard took this race apart coming home 22L to the good from Royale Pagaille ending the season with a 15L success in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. His trainer Henry de Bromhead stated on Racing TV on Thursday that the horse is very very well and will be hard to beat. The only negative is that he’s unproven on heavy ground if the ground did go that way. Second favourite Protektorat was just under 18L behind A Plus Tard in the Gold Cup but can chase him home today having had his wind operated on since. Eldorado Allen and Frodon look out of their depth but the eleven year old Bristol De Mai has won this race three times out of the last five years and will love very deep ground. His track record at the Lancashire track reads 111121P2 and were the ground to become bottomless he’s the one who could upset the favourite. A no bet race but an intriguing one none the less with the re-appearance of the defending Cheltenham Gold Cup victor. Ascot 3.15 With so many small fields and short favourites today it’s nice to have a nine runner class 2 handicap chase run over 2m 1F to get our teeth into. Top weight Edwardstone was the top two mile novice chaser last season and was pulled out at the eleventh hour at Cheltenham last Sunday because of the drying ground but there will be no issues today. This is a tougher start to the season mind for Alan King’s stable star and it won’t be easy giving weight away on soft ground to some smart handicappers. At the respective odds I’ll be looking elsewhere for some value. Dan Skelton’s Third Time Lucki is receiving 10lb from Edwardstone and on two pieces of form from last season should put him in the mix although he does have to put a poor seasonal re-appearance behind him. Thyme White had Frero Banbou and Before Midnight back in second and third respectively over course and distance three weeks ago and with the runner up now 7lb better for just under 5L and the softer ground in his favour Frero Banbou could come out the best of the trio although the stable form is of concern. Harry Fry’s Boothill is a lightly raced chaser who did it well in a four runner handicap at Newton Abbot last time and this will be tougher. The horse I like is Emmet Mullins’ bottom weight So Scottish who comes here chasing a four timer following wins at Kilbeggan, Tipperary and Carlisle with the last two successes coming in novice chases. He could be well treated and getting 26lb from Edwardstone looks the bet. SO SCOTTISH 1 1/2 points each way @ 11/2 Betfred 1/5th 123 Haydock 3.35 We finish Haydock’s card off with a class two 3M 1 1/2F handicap chase with a dozen staying chasers lining up. The race has an open look about it with my preference being for the Richard Hobson trained Lord Du Mesnil who has fallen to a handicap mark 3lb lower then when winning the Grand National Trial here in February 2021. He ran well on his seasonal re-appearance when chasing home the well backed Le Milos at Bangor ten days ago and rides this track really well winning three of his six starts here. There is however many dangers including Nicky Richard’s Houston Texas who will love the track and is an out and out stayer who comes here chasing a four timer having risen 19lb for those victories. He may still have more to give. Fontaine Collonges is up 10lb for his victory last time out but the mare’s trainer Venetia Williams is on a long losing sequence. Musical Slave owned by JP McManus and trained by Philip Hobbs ended last season in excellent shape winning two handicaps (including over course and distance) prior to a good second to Hewick in Sandown’s bet365 Gold Cup. If ready he could run a race. With fitness guaranteed and the prospect of an uncontested lead the front running Lord Du Mesnil is the one I like each way with enhanced places.

  4. This weekend’s big handicap is the Becher Handicap Chase, run over the Grand National course at Aintree. This premier handicap is run over 3 miles and 2 furlongs and is open to horses aged 6 or older. It should be a good spectacle to watch as there are 21 fences for the horses to overcome. Off time is 2.05 and 23 go to post. It is not a good guide for Cheltenham but 2 winners have gone on to win the Grand National, Amberleigh House and Silver Birch. Many bookmakers offer each-way terms of 6 places which makes the race an excellent betting proposition. WATCH THE CALORIES I have looked at the statistics over the last 9 seasons and these are my key conclusions. 1. It is difficult to lug heavy weights around this course. There have been 64 horses that have carried more than 10st 12lbs and only 1 has won. Lighter weights have a record of 8 from 108. 2. Horses bred in Ireland have a poor record with just 2 wins from 94 attempts compared to 7 from 78 for those horses bred in other countries. 3. This is not a good race for fancied runners. Horses with forecast odds of 16/1 or higher have a record of 5 wins from 84 runners compared to 4 from 88 for their more fancied opponents. Just 2 horses fit these criteria, DIDERO VALLIS (22/1) and PERCUSSION (18/1). I suggest backing these each way with bookmakers who are offering 5/6 places. Further statistics that may prove relevant. French bred horses have a particularly good record with 5 wins from 51 runs. DIDERO VALLIS is bred in France, PERCUSSION in the UK. Horses ideally need time to recover from their last run. Horses that last ran less than 22 days ago have a record of 0 wins from 36 attempts. DIDERO VALLIS last ran 13 days ago, PERCUSSION 28. Relatively unexposed horses have a decent record with 6 winners from 90 runners compared to 3 from 82 for their more experienced rivals. DIDERO VALLIS has run 31 times, PERCUSSION 12. The ideal age is 9, with 4 wins from 43 attempts. DIDERO VALLIS is 9, PERCUSSION is 7. Gavin Sheehan, who rides PERCUSSION, won this race in 2017 with Blaklion. Nigel Twiston-Davies has the best record in this race with 6 winners in the last 30 years. This year he saddles Fantastikas.

  5. Becher chase I think DOMAINE DE L'ISLE is well worth an e/w play at 40's may even go bigger trainer has the blinkers back on this horse is very low in the weights if jockey can keep him interesered could run a very big race was a 22l back in 4th at 66/1 in this last year mark was 147 just 132 today hoping the blinkers help this moody sort keep his mind on the job for me off this wieght and price worth a play e/w 6p bog. Irish horses always worth a look in these big handicaps and i have played RECITE A PRAYER @ 16/1 6p bog from the Mullins yard is in good form and should run its race,

  6. Hi all, new here. Trying one up at Carlisle today in the 3.00 Really good race but wouldn't be surprised to see Dobbin's RATH AN IUIR return to form. Not shown much for a while but his mark has dropped because of this and likes it here. Think he'll strip a lot fitter for his recent comeback here. 17-2 BOG and 4 places available.

  7. Sat here thinking, if thats the best that the racing world can put on for the viwers on a saturday the Game really is in trouble. Trainers train horses to run, one moment they are moaning about good, good to firm ground the next moment they wont run them on soft and, always moaning about prize money but they win nothing stood in a bloody stable but the owner still pays the bill. This fixture list Flat and Jumps needs ripping apart and sooner rather than later.

  8. With the ground riding good Ed Chamberlain and the team are at Cheltenham for the final day of the Paddy Power meeting with the Greatwood Hurdle the feature race. There’s also the added bonus of the Southern National from Fontwell where the ground is likely to ride on the soft side. Here’s my thoughts on the five races. Cheltenham 1.45 Only five have declared for the two mile Shloer Chase and in all fairness the race looks a match between last years top two mile novice chaser Edwardstone and last year’s winner Nube Negra. Official ratings have only a pound between them and both are coming here following an absence of over 200 plus days. Alan King’s Edwardstone was last seen when a tad disappointing second at 4/7 at Aintree but had won the Arkle prior to that over course and distance. His trainer stated earlier in the week that he wanted to give him a run before the Tingle Creek at Sandown so one does wonder if he’ll be totally tuned up for this. Nube Negra started out last season in this very race when a comfortable 6L winner from Politologue though failed to back that effort up in two efforts since. He obviously goes well fresh and with the Dan Skelton stable in such fine form may be more forward than his chief rival Edwardstone and I’ll take him to win this. It’s hard to fancy the other three runners with possibly Sizing Pottsie the best of the trio. NUBE NEGRA 2 points win @ 11/8 BetVictor Fontwell 2.05 A good sized field of fourteen line up for the Southern National Handicap Chase run over 3m 3 1/2F of the figure of eight course . I think there’s a decent bet here in Gary Moore’s top weight Full Back. Ridden by his son Jamie he ran well on his re-appearance when plugging on to finish a 14 1/2L fourth in a decent Ascot handicap chase and surprisingly the handicapper has dropped him a couple of pounds which must have pleased connections. A Cheltenham winner on New Years Day off of a 2lb lower mark he stays well and can give weight all round to a field of mainly exposed stayers. The one horse who isn’t is the Paul Nicholls trained Southfield Harvest as he’s only run the once over fences when winning a five runner affair at Newton Abbot in May of 2021. He’s not been seen since and it will be some training performance were he to take this. Nicholls stated in his Betfair column for the weekend that ‘he’s ready to start now, stays well, and needs plenty of cut in the ground’. I’m not sure he’ll get the latter and for me he’s worth opposing. Last year’s runner up Almazhar Garde is interesting off of a 3lb lower mark whilst Seamus Mullin’s I See You Well is two from three at this track so has claims. There’s a lot of dead wood at the bottom of the handicap in my opinion and Full Back looks sure to run well. FULL BACK 2 points win @ 4/1 bet365 Cheltenham 2.20 A decent sized field of thirteen here for the 3m 3F 71 yards class 1 handicap chase. Kim Bailey has his string in fine form currently and his top weight Does He Know is maybe the one to be with. He loves good ground and has a record here of three wins from six starts which has to be a bonus. Ramses De Teillee looks well handicapped having won this event two years ago off of a 12lb higher mark but he needs the mud so is overlooked. Nick Gifford’s The Mighty Don ran a decent second to Yala Enki in this last year from a 7lb higher mark although this year’s renewal looks significantly hotter. Fantastikas makes his seasonal re-appearance for the Twiston-Davies’s although has won fresh in the past and is another with a chance. Despite the steadier of twelve stone I’ll take second season chaser Does He Know under David Bass who gets his mounts into such a good rhythm to plunder this prize. DOES HE KNOW 2 points win @ 9/2 William Hill Cheltenham 2.55 A highly competitive renewal of the Greatwood Handicap Hurdle run over two miles and 87 yards. Two Irish horses head the market in Emmet Mullins Thousand Tears who has been the subject of an ante post gamble during the week. As much as I respect the trainer I can’t see why he’s so short and am happy to look elsewhere. Willie Mullins saddles the other one at the head of the market and I can definitely see why. A winner at the Showcase meeting three weeks ago over fences he reverts to the smaller obstacles off of a handicap mark 7lb lower. Brian Hayes rode him that day and keeps the ride. He has to be on the short list. It’s not just about the Irish horses at the front of the betting though with plenty of others coming here with decent chances. Top weight I Like To Move It is two from four at the track and can run well but it would be some performance to win off of 12 stone. Sonigino has been raised 10lb for an easy recent win at Chepstow and may be weighted out of it. My fancy is a horse that bumped into Sonigino at Chepstow back at the beginning of last month keeping on to finish just under 3L behind the winner and re-opposes today on a stone better terms. That horse is the Alan King trained Nina The Terrier who followed up that good effort when crashing out three from home when staying on well against two horses rated 11lb and 12lb higher at Wetherby. It was too far out to say what would of happened but she certainly wasn’t done with. She could be well handicapped and I’ll take her to strike each way with additional place terms. NINA THE TERRIER 1 point each way @ 12/1 Hills 1/5th 12345 Cheltenham 3.30 Nice novices go to post for this grade 2 2m Supreme Trial Novices’ Hurdle. Four of the nine are trained in Ireland with the best of them possibly John C McConnell’s Fennor Cross who won a maiden hurdle from the re-opposing Deere Mark cosily at the last meeting. This does represent a step up in grade mind. The Cork maiden hurdle victory of ‘Shark’ Hanlon’s Fascinating Shadow in May has worked out very well and with a recent pipe opener on the all weather at Dundalk shouldn’t be dismissed. Jonjo O’Neill’s Springwell Boy was an easy winner at Carlisle on his hurdles debut last month although that form was let down by the eclipse of Iorens at Market Rasen earlier this week. I’m going to take a chance on the unexposed Nicky Henderson trained, JP McManus owned Iberico Lord who has joined the Seven Barrows maestro after winning a French bumper on soft ground last May for Daniela Mele. Henderson said in a recent stable tour that ‘ he’s an exciting prospect that jumps well’. He’ll do for me. IBERICO LORD 2 points win @ 3/1 Betfred

  18. A cracking afternoon’s racing with the ITV team travelling to Sandown and Aintree. The feature races are the formers Tingle Creek and Aintree’s Becher Chase. The ground is on the soft side at Sandown for the chasers and softer on the hurdles course whilst Aintree will be racing on good to soft all round. Here’s my thought on today’s eight races. Aintree 1.30 Only six chasers declared for this 3m 1F grade 2 Many Clouds Chase. Only 6lb cover the field on official ratings and with a short priced favourite Ahoy Senor who at around the 11/10 mark looks too short to my eyes with his lack lustre re-appearance effort fresh in the mind and his jumping mow under scrutiny. On his best form of last season of course he can win this but I’m happy to look elsewhere for some better value. Nicky Henderson’s JP McManus owned Chantry House is penalised 6lb here and seems to have two ways of running although first time out maybe the best time to play him. Last season’s Grand National winner Noble Yeats comes here on the back of a win at Wexford and is not out of it whilst Ruth Jefferson’s Sounds Russian is on the upgrade and is unpenalised here. Sam Brown ran well on his re-appearance when third to Bravemansgame in the Charlie Hall, form that has already been boosted by the win of the 4th Paint The Dream, and can be competitive whilst Jeremy Scott’s Dashel Drasher is well treated by the weights and looks overpriced at a double figure price. In an open race I’m taking on the favourite Ahoy Senor and will dutch the pair of Dashel Drasher and Sam Brown. DASHEL DRASHER 1 point win @ 12/1 BetVictor SAM BROWN 1 point win @ 9/1 bet365 Sandown 1.45 Only four have declared for this year’s renewal of the Close Brothers Henry VIII Novices’ Chase run over just short of two miles. A hot favourite here is Jonbon (as long as trainer Nicky Henderson allows him to take part!) who is very hard to oppose. A top class novice hurdler last season who’s only defeat came at the hands of the freak that is Constitution Hill he made an impressive chase debut when beating two smart rivals at Warwick 17 days ago under regular jockey Aidan Coleman. Boothill is his closest rival in the betting having won a decent Ascot handicap a fortnight ago and although officially rated only 5lb behind Jonbon I’ll be surprised if the favourites superiority wasn’t stronger than that. Unexpected Party is hard to fancy whilst rag Honneur D’jonc is way out of his depth (although will secure at least £4264 if completing). A no bet race for me but I’ld expect a comprehensive victory for Jonbon. Aintree 2.05 The feature race of the day is the Becher Handicap Chase run over 3m 2F of the Grand National course. A bumper field of 23 will go to post and there is ample opportunity here for an each way bet (or two) with enhanced places. At the head of the market we have the Skelton’s Ashtown Lad who teed up for this in a warm handicap hurdle here a month ago when running well to finish third in a race that’s worked out very well with the winner and fifth going on to finish 2nd and 3rd in the Coral Gold Cup. He can be competitive and looks to give the Skelton’s a third consecutive big race winner on a Saturday. Oliver Greenall and Josh Guerriero’s Gesskille made his debut for his new stable when going down in a tight finish to Al Dancer over a five furlong shorter trip over these unique fences in the Grand Sefton a month ago and should run well if staying the extra distance. Back in third that day was Laura Morgan’s Percussion who was beaten 8L and can race here off of 7lb better terms. At four times the price Percussion is worth playing small each way. My main selection though has to be last years winner Snow Leopardess who jumped really win that day to get the better of Hill Sixteen, who re-opposes on 3lb worse terms for a nose beating. She has excuses for her last efforts when pulling up with the first being the Grand National and on her re-appearance where she made a uncharacteristic blunder at the first where her jockey lost an iron and was quickly pulled up. If getting into an early rhythm the grey can repeat last years win and she’s the bet here with a small each way play on Percussion. SNOW LEOPARDESS 1 point each way @ 12/1 William Hills 1/5th 123456 PERCUSSION 1/2 point each way @ 25/1 bet365 1/5th 123456 Sandown 2.20 Ten go to post for this two mile class 2 handicap hurdle. Warm favourite is the Harry Fry trained Love Envoi who makes her handicap debut having won 5 of her 6 starts as a novice last season culminating in victory in the mares’ novice hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. She did get beat at Fairyhouse the following month when failing to beat Willie Mullin’s useful mare Brandi Love but that did come at the end of a busy season for her. She loves deep ground and despite her odds should be hard to beat. The obvious each way play against her is Oliver Greenall and Josh Guerriero’s Homme Public who’s up 7lb for a cosy win at Wetherby on her re-appearance. The useful Toby Wynne takes the ride now and claims a valuable 5lb which will help negate his rise. He looks the each way bet here with Love Envoi not having had a run this season and skinny enough in the market. HOMME PUBLIC 1 point each way @ 9/2 William Hill 1/5th 1234 Aintree 2.40 Thirteen line up for this class 2 2m 4F handicap chase. Richard Hobson’s Riders On The Storm was runner up in this last year to Clan Legend (more on him later) and was an excellent winner on his re-appearance over course and distance in the Old Roan Handicap Chase, a race that’s already worked out extremely well with the 2nd Hitman and 3rd Ga Law winning big races since. He looks the one they all have to beat with his love of this flat track (form figures of 1201). One horse who looks well over priced is the Nick Alexander trained Clan Legend who has won the last two running of this race beating the aforementioned Riders On The Storm by 3 1/2L last year and is now 3lb worse off. On that running there shouldn’t be much between them but Clan Legend is currently six times bigger! He ran well on his seasonal debut when runner up over three miles and this drop to two and a half miles looks likely to suit. I’m happy enough to back both last years one - two here. RIDERS ON THE STORM 2 points win @ 11/4 bet365 CLAN LEGEND 1 point each way @ 16/1 bet365 1/5th 1234 Sandown 2.55 Fingers crossed that all six run here in this excellent renewal of the Tingle Creek Chase run over just short of two miles. Edwardstone has missed a couple of engagements late in the day this season due to drying ground and last years Arkle winner has 15lb on official ratings to find with the front two in the market. Willie Mullins’ Gentleman De Mee beat Edwardstone at Aintree in April,but has questions to answer now following a disappointing re-appearance when unseating at the last at Naas when held. It’s hard to fancy Dunvegan whilst Funambule Sivola has a good record at around this trip with form figures of 112112112 and can outrun his odds of around 20/1 (it’s a shame no firm are betting three places in this six runner contest as he would of been worth chancing each way at those odds). That leaves the big two in last year’s winner Greaneteen, trained by Paul Nicholls, who comes here on the back of an impressive win in the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter a month ago and Nicky Henderson’s Shishkin who’s the bet here. Mrs J Donnelly’s chaser had won all seven of his chases coming in to the Champion Chase at Cheltenham in March when it was obvious from an early stage that he was never travelling and Nico de Boinville pulled him up after the 8th. It may have been his lung busting effort 53 days previous when beating Energumene at Ascot that was the reason or a rare bone disease that it transpired he was suffering with but one things for sure had he not run at Cheltenham he would be an odds on shot today. If back to his best surely he wins this. SHISHKIN 2 points win @ 11/10 bet365 Aintree 3.15. A class 2 handicap hurdle concludes the day’s action at Aintree with thirteen going to post. Top weight Langer Dan appears to have plenty of weight off of twelve stone though obviously needed his last run so shouldn’t be dismissed easily. If there is a horse here who could blow these away it’s surely Nicky Henderson’s Walking On Air, who was pulled out at Newbury last weekend due to the drying ground. This will be his handicap debut with his trainer talking him up in recent stable tours. David Pipe’s Sizing Pottsie has been given a chance by the handicapper who has dropped him 10lb for his recent second whilst Oliver Greenall & Josh Guerriero’s Herbiers is another who could run well following his easy Newbury victory last month. A tough handicap but it has to be Walking On Air who spent the Summer recuperating at Coolmore following a disappointing run at Aintree in April when he didn’t get the ideal preparation. He could end up a fair stayer, like his mother Refinement, and I’ll take him to take this off of what may well turn out to be a very lenient mark of 132 under Sean Bowen. WALKING ON AIR 2 points win @ 10/3 bet365 Sandown 3.30 Eleven staying chasers line up for the last of the day at the Esher track for the class 2 3m 5F London National Handicap Chase where I think the top three in the handicap are the ones to be concentrating on. Favourite is Harry Fry’s Revels Hill who ran a good first run of the season at Ascot last month when runner up over an inadequate trip of 2m 5f and looks sure to go well. The only negative for him is the price at around the 15/8 mark. Venetia Williams is having her typical purple patch currently and her Quick Wave has to be a player here especially if strong in the market. Not seen for 327 days (which is never usually an issue with Williams’ runners) she looked good when hosing up at Ludlow when last seen and is now 7lb higher in the weights. Deise Aba is my pick though, with a good record at Sandown of 1122 with the two defeats coming by a head and a nose including in this very race a year ago, he’s been teed up for this by his trainer Philip Hobbs by running over hurdles a month ago (form that has worked out well) and despite the steadier of ten stone looks sure to run well and I’ll play each way with the firms paying an extra place. DEISE ABA 1 1/2 points each way @ 4/1 William Hill 1/5th 1234

  19. Eight races this afternoon with the ITV cameras showing five from Newbury with the feature race the Coral Gold Cup and three from Newcastle where we have the Fighting Fifth with the re-appearance of arguably the most exciting horse in training in Nicky Henderson’s unbeaten superstar Constitution Hill. The ground is likely to be just on the slow side at Newbury whilst Newcastle are reporting drying good to soft conditions. Here’s my thoughts on the days racing. Newbury 1.20 A competitive 2m 6F handicap chase run in the memory of the legendary commentator Sir Peter O’Sullevan kicks off the days ITV coverage with a decent sized field of thirteen facing the starter. Last years winner Kapcorse is back to defend his title off of a 6lb higher mark and looks interesting for the combo of Nicholls and Cobden with a lay off unlikely to be an issue as he won this off of a similar break 12 months ago. Bottom weight Killer Kane will no doubt improve for his seasonal re-appearance when 6th at Chepstow and is a player here along with the Nicky Henderson runner Mister Coffey who is making his first start of the campaign. Welsh trainer Christian Williams runs a brace in top weight Kitty’s Light who may still be too high in the weights and of more interest his Cap Du Nord who won this race two years ago and is ridden by a 7lb conditional jockey today. Kerry Lee’s Demachine is a horse I like who ran out a comfortable winner at Uttoxeter when last seen in May and with Lee amongst the winners recently could be the value bet here. I also can’t resist a small each way saver on Philip Hobb’s Zanza who has form figures here of 1161 and is currently on a winning mark. DEMACHINE 1 point each way @ 15/2 bet365 1/5th 1234 ZANZA 1/2 point each way @ 9/1 1/5th 1234 Newcastle 1.35 Five novice chasers line up for this class 3 2m 7F 91 yard novices’ handicap chase. Irish challenger Shantou Lucky trained by County Meath handler Gavin Cromwell is a rare runner here for his trainer and has to be respected but my preference is for the James Ewart trained Lord Roco who showed plenty of promise on his chase debut at Ayr when runner up to Grand Voyage. He’s stepping up three furlongs here but the stamina test should suit him and this lightly raced six year old looks sure to be competitive. Ben Pauling has his team in excellent shape and saddles his fencing debutant Malinello under Luca Morgan. He’s not been seen on the racecourse for 686 days and it will be some training performance where he to take this off of top weight. Brian Ellison’s Son Of The Somme is another who could take a hand in the finish following a promising chase debut at Ayr in October but it’s Lord Roco for me. LORD ROCO 2 points win @ 4/1 BetVictor Newbury 1.55 A decent and competitive 12 runner class 2 handicap hurdle run over 2m 4 1/2F is next up with the two market leaders making their handicap debuts and could be a fair bit better than their handicap mark. Nicky Henderson saddles Walking On Air, an impressive maiden hurdle winner here last January who it seems is held in very high regard by his trainer and a mark of just 132 could seriously underestimate his ability. The other potential blot on the handicap is the Skelton runner West Balboa who was last seen running second in last season’s Tolworth Hurdle over course and distance. She too could potentially be chucked in. Both have been well supported throughout the week with slight preference for the Henderson runner. Lord Baddesley impressed when bolting up at Plumpton last time but has been raised 9lb for that victory. Fergal O’Brien’s Peking Rose scraped home at Aintree last month and wouldn’t be certain to confirm that form with the third Petit Tonnerre who re-opposes on 2lb better terms for just over a length. An interesting runner at what appears to me to be too big a price is the Ian Williams trained Malakahna. The four year old filly comes here having won her last two starts on the flat in the Autumn and is chasing a four timer over timber having last been seen in that sphere at Cheltenham at their April meeting. She looks overpriced and I’ll back her small each way as well as Nicky Henderson’s Walking On Air. MALAKAHNA 1 point each way @ 14/1 Boylesports 1/5th 1234 WALKING ON AIR 1 point win @ 7/2 William Hill Newcastle 2.10 Ascot’s loss is Newcastle’s gain as the most exciting horse in training Constitution Hill lines up for the two mile Fighting Fifth Hurdle on his seasonal re-appearance. Unbeaten last season in three starts culminating in a remarkable rout in the Supreme Novices Hurdle at Cheltenham in a very fast time, Nicky Henderson’s five year old is already around the even money mark for the Champion Hurdle and bar accidents should be winning this under Nico de Boinville. His smart stable companion Epatante, a former Champion Hurdle winner herself, has won this the last two years and is no slouch herself. She can finish runner up here but from a punting perspective it’s a no bet race but well worth watching to see how special Michael Buckley’s charge is. Newbury 2.30 The 2m 69 yard intermediate handicap hurdle registered as the Gerry Feilden is a valuable contest which has attracted just the eight participants. All 8 can be give a chance of sorts with local trainer Nicky Henderson heading the weights with First Street and Thaetre Glory who are both making their seasonal re-appearances today. Both have claims though it’s the handicap debutant Pikak trained by Dan Skelton and ridden by his brother Harry that takes my eye. He kept good novice company as a four year old in races won by the likes of smart sorts Knappers Hill, I Like To Move It and Jonbon and got off the mark when an easy winner at Chepstow in October. That form has been given a double boost since with the 3rd all set for victory when crashing out at Ascot and the 4th winning well since. His mark of 127 looks possibly lenient and can take this. PIKAR 1 point win @ 10/3 bet365 Newbury 3.05 Formerly known at The Hennessy Gold Cup and more recently The Ladbroke Trophy this 3m 2F handicap chase is now known as the Coral Gold Cup and as per normal has attracted a strong group of sixteen runners. With the bookmakers betting 7/1 the field and offering up to 6 places it really is a race to have a crack at. David Pipe runs two in Remastered and Gericault Roque with stable jockey Tom Scudamore on the latter although I wouldn’t be reading too much into that as Remastered was ridden by David Noonan last time when a comfortable winner over hurdles at Aintree with Gericault Roque down the field. Remastered was going like the winner when crashing out four from home last year and is actually 3lb lower this term. He’s on my short list. Joe Tizzard saddles three in Oscar Elite (Cobden), Fiddlerontheroof (Powell) and Lostintranslation (Freddie Gingell claiming 7lb). All have some sort of chance and I wouldn’t be shocked if the latter was to run well as he’s so well handicapped at present. Le Milos won well at Bangor last time and is officially 4lb well in here for the Skeltons but would definitely prefer it muddier. Lucinda Russell has her team in fine form with a treble at Kelso on Thursday and saddles Cheltenham Festival winner Corach Rambler who’s been teed up for this with a run at Carlisle 27 days ago. Towards the bottom of the handicap is Neil Mulholland’s Lord Accord who bumped into the well handicapped Frodon in the Badger Beers at Wincanton last time. A case can be made for plenty but it’s Remastered for me with a small saver on Lord Accord. Remember to shop around for those extra places. REMASTERED 1 point each way @ 8/1 Paddy Power 1/5th 12345 LORD ACCORD 1/2 point each way @ 14/1 1/5th 12345 Newcastle 3.25 Nine staying chasers line up for this premier handicap, the Rehearsal Handicap Chase run over just short of three miles. The weights are headed by Venetia Williiam’s Cheltenham Festival winner L’Homme Presse who has the steadier of twelve stone to carry. Williams has hit form within the last week but her stable star has plenty to do giving lumps of weight away on his seasonal reappearance and I’ll be taking him on here. Last year’s winner Aye Right is two from three at the North Eastern track and ran well on his seasonal re-appearance in a competitive Kelso handicap five weeks ago. He can run well. Kim Bailey sends his smart eight year old Happygolucky up from Gloucestershire although he has a 595 day absence to overcome. The four rank outsiders Windsor Avenue, The Big Bite, Whoshotthesherriff and Dallas Des Pictons are hard to fancy and this looks a good race for an each way bet. It’s the bottom weight trained by the under rated Mark Walford who catches my eye. A progressive seven year old chaser who’s won his last four starts rising some 26lb. Getting 26lb from the favourite L’Homme Presse he looks an excellent each way bet. INTO OVERDRIVE 1 1/2 points each way @ 4/1 bet365 1/5th 123 Newbury 3.40 The afternoon’s terrestrial coverage concludes with a eight runner class 2 2M handicap chase. Joe Tizzard’s Amarillo Sky is a short enough favourite here having won at the Paddy Power meeting at Cheltenham on his re-appearance 33 days ago. Raised 4lb for that victory he looks sure to be thereabouts though I must admit at around the 11/8 mark hardly looks value. Chris Gordon has his string in fine form and saddles Only Money here who’s already won twice this Autumn and ran well enough at Aintree behind Gunshot Ridge last time. He has solid each way claims. Dan Skelton has two runners in top weight Eclair D’Ainay and Hatcher with Harry Skelton presumably choosing the former and is probably the pick of that pair. The horse I like though is Tom George’s Bun Doran who has fallen to a very nice handicap mark. He last won at Doncaster in March and after flopping at Aintree the following month is back on the same mark as his Doncaster win. George has had 4 winners from his last 13 runners at a win ratio of 31% and if all eight run is worth a small stakes each way bet against the favourite. BUN DORAN 1 point each way @ 7/1 bet365 1/5th 123

  21. When something looks too good to be true it often is.....or should you never look a gift horse in the mouth? Which is it today? In the 1.00 Carlisle there is no doubt in my mind whatsoever that if this was a hurdle race then the Jonjo O'neill trained Soaring Glory would be around the 1/2 mark. Winner of the Betfair Hurdle at Newbuy last year and then 5th in the same race this year of a mark 14lb higher. In between never beaten more than 5 lenghts in two Listed Races and a Graded Races including a third to Eptante. There are dangers of course, not least the 288 day abscence and the improvers Nells Son and Richmond Lake, but at the morning price of 2.66 for Soaring Glory I'm quite happy with that especially as the stable had a winner and two seconds yesterday..........res....late drift said it all......2.5 to 3.12 in the last 60 seconds, can only think the 288 day lay off was the reason and some awkward jumping too!! Unplaced. Staying at Carlisle in the 2.00 race, Gordon Elliott send over the classy River Detel, the mare aquitted herself well in Graded company last season and ran to form on this seasons debut behind Captain Guinness, but for a mistake two out she would surely have gone even closer. Still only a five year old there is surely more to come from her. Best I could get was 2.02 but now trading slightly odds on. A clear round today should see her home.....................stuffed, finished last. Bad weekend for me just the one winner over the weekend. Good luck today whatever you are on.

  24. This weekend’s big handicap is the Coral Gold Cup Handicap Chase at Newbury. To us old timers this will always be known as the Hennessy, 1st run in 1957. This premier handicap is run over 3 miles and 2 furlongs and is open to horses aged 4 or older. Off time is 3.05 and 16 go to post. It is often a good guide for Cheltenham. Native River won this race in 2016 before going on to win that year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup. 4 other horses have been placed in this race before going on to win at the Cheltenham Festival. Many Clouds won this in 2014 before going on to win that year’s Grand National. Most bookmakers offer each-way terms of 5 places which makes the race an excellent betting proposition. TRUST THE ODDS I have looked at the statistics over the last 9 seasons and these are my key conclusions. 1. The market is a good guide for this race. Horses at odds of more than 11/1 have a record of 1 win from 114 runners. Horses shorter than this have 8 wins from 55 runners. 2. It is better to have experience prior to this race. Horses that have had less than 15 runs have a record of 3 wins from 94 runners compared to 6 wins from 75 runners for their more experienced rivals. 3. Horses that finished in the 1st 3 last time have a success rate of 7 from 90. Those that finished further down the field have only won 2 from 79 efforts. This reduces the field to 5, LE MILOS (7/1), BUSSELTON (9/1), FIDDLERONTHEROOF (11/1), REMASTERED (15/2) and OUR POWER (12/1). I suggest backing these each way with bookmakers who are offering 5 places. For those who wish to narrow the field down further there are some other statistics that may prove relevant. Horses carrying more than 11st 6lbs have a record of 0 wins from 31 attempts. This would rule out FIDDLERONTHEROOF, who carries 11st 9lbs. A decent rest is desirable. Horses returning within 25 days of their last run have not won any of their 36 attempts. BUSSELTON last ran 66 days ago, OUR POWER 28 days ago. Favourites have a good record with 3 winners from 8 runners. Horses bred in Ireland have the best record with 6 from 98 runners. FIDDLERONTHEROOF and OUR POWER are bred in Ireland.

  47. Two seconds beaten at 1.02 and 1.06 yesterday, 2tbp markets were ok but I'm having lay off prices from now on in running, not for a cash out just to cover my stake. 2.30 Exeter I'm dutching two in this race. Firstly Midnight Glance at 10.5, Third behind Tea For Three last time out who is now rated 125 having won again nto, MG ran poorly in reality that day making far too many jumping errors, a better round today should see him in the places here. Lay off price here is arond the 2.6 mark.....1st Secondly from the same race Representing Bob, he finihsed 15 lengths in front of MG that day but may not do so today even though they are at the same weights as last time. Ive 3.85 for this one. Lay off price will be around the 1.18 mark..............................................................................1st and 2nd with Midnight Glance winning nicely, went off at a Bfsp of 11.1. 8.00 Wolves, I'm doing a trade in this race on the thrice raced Night Life, looks too big to me at the current price of 14 on the exchanges, A head second to Ndaawi who went on to win a class 2 and is now rated 92, staying on that day so maybe the extra distance will play into her hands today and she could give the odds on fav something to think about, will be looking to lay this off at around the 4 mark or lower in running, to give an even profit win or lose. At Plumpton we have a situation where a jockey who is currently serving a 10 day ban in Ireland is riding two here today, both for his old man, a shrewd operator to say the least, Grozni in the 1.10 is around the 1.95 mark and in the 1.40 a Seller, Wahaaja, who has drifted from 2/5 to evens on the Exchanges and then back to 1.8!.....huge drift on Grozni just before the off, as big as 4.1 suggests they are laying this one?........Wahaaja backed in to 1.39 two minutes before the off suggests they are backing this one 🙄..........went off at 1.33 and hacks up!! Got there money offa the lay and put it all on the well backed one? Good luck today everyone.
