Friday’s racing tips – 13/8 NAP to master the competition at Exeter

Jonathan Vine 6 Dec 2018
A view of the stands at Exeter races.

Our expert takes a look through all of Friday’s cards and selects an improving novice as his NAP of the day with Paddy Power on Friday 7th December.

1:30pm Exeter British Stallion Studs EBF "National Hunt" Novices' Hurdle (Qualifier) (Class 4) 2m1f



While Tedham has some decent flat form behind several subsequent hurdling winners, I’d be surprised if this race didn’t go to one of the three penalty-carriers at the top of the market. Samarquand’s task was made easier when market rival, Shannon Hill slipped on the bend at Ludlow, but Harry Fry’s charge still made quite hard work in seeing off a 16/1 shot. He heads the market, but under a double-penalty, over this two-mile trip, he looks vulnerable.

Getaway Trump is another dropping down in distance, having won nicely over two-and-a-half-miles at Plumpton. The form of Paul Nicholls’ yard is a plus and he could run a good race, but the one I really like in here is REMASTERED and I think David Pipe’s novice is the one to be on.

During his time in Ireland, Remastered finished behind Early Doors and Shady Operator in two good quality flat races. He then secured a decent runner-up finish behind the rampant Downtown Getaway - who’s now in the care of Nicky Henderson and remains one of my horses to track during the upcoming season.

On his stable debut for Pipe, Remastered powered to a nice victory on the level, beating Kateson – who has done very well over hurdles for Tom Lacey during the autumn – by four lengths. Pipe managed to find some heavy ground to start his five-year-old off on this term and Remastered looked perfectly at home over obstacles, streaking clear after settling into the race to eventually win by seven lengths.

Good Boy Bobby is a smart horse I like, but he was powerless to stop Remastered winning during that clash at Ffos Las. Ground conditions will be a little firmer than heavy here at Exeter, but that could bring about further improvement in this likeable novice. David Pipe’s yard is in desperate need of a star – maybe Remastered can be the new poster boy.
