Tuesday 5 February horse racing tips - Henderson's 5/4 chance can prove Streets ahead of Market Rasen rivals

Brian Healy 4 Feb 2019
Market Rasen is one of two UK horse racing fixtures going to post on Tuesday.

Brian Healy gives his race-by-race selections and best bets across each of Tuesday's UK and Irish horse racing meetings.

Just two meetings go to post on Tuesday, and the day’s jumps racing action comes from the card at Market Rasen; while on the all-weather there is a fixture on the Newcastle tapeta. Sadly, Sedgefield's scheduled jumps fixture was lost to the weather and abandoned following a Monday inspection.

Market Rasen (jumps) - 1.50 - 4.30pm (6 races)
Newcastle (flat, aw) - 4.10 - 7.15pm (8 races)

TUESDAY 5 FEBRUARY NAP SELECTION



MARKET RASEN


(2.20) PARLOUR MAID (11/4, Bet365) could be worth chancing to follow up her last time win at Lingfield in January when the Dr Massini mare was returned to fences, and Richard Hawker’s charge can strike again.

The eight-year old struck by little over three lengths on that occasion, and while the handicapper has reacted by pushing her up 5lbs in the weights for that win, she appeared to do the job readily enough and further improvement in this discipline could see her defy her new rating.

She ran on well despite being hampered to register that first chase success, and although less testing ground might see her in a better light, she ought to go close again with a repeat effort.

(2.55) CLARENDON STREET (5/4, Ladbrokes) stepped up on a highly promising debut over hurdles at Warwick in December where the Court Cave gelding found only Birchdale too strong to go one better at Wetherby latest, beating Est Illic by ten lengths.

Nicky Henderson’s charge won easily despite making a hash of the final hurdle; but open to further improvement over timber she could be up to the task of following up that success despite this looking a stronger race now taking on some useful rivals from top yards.

He ought to be capable of better however, and further progress should see him firmly in the mix.

1.50 - Lisheen Castle
2.20 - Parlour Maid
2.55 - Clarendon Street
3.25 - Minella Fiveo
4.00 - Follow The Swallow
4.30 - Notachance

Nicky Henderson can get amongst the winners at Market Rasen.


NEWCASTLE


(4.45) TUM TUM (7/4, Bet365) showed improved form when finding only one too good on his debut for this yard at Southwell back in December, seemingly improved by a first-time hood; Michael Herrington’s charge could be capable of going one better here with a repeat.

The Dawn Approach gelding had finished runner-up on his final start for Martyn Meade at Kempton the previous December, after which he moved to Michael Bell for whom he raced once.

But having joined this yard, he was denied only by Amouri Gleam when going down by less than two lengths, and he could do better now switching to tapeta with the return to one mile unlikely to present an issue.

(5.15) CHOSEN WORLD (5/1, Paddy Power) wasn’t seen to best effect here last month when denied in his hat-trick bid; but Julie Camacho’s charge could quickly bounce back.

The Intikhab gelding had won his two previous starts here, latterly when beating Rey Loopy by just over one lengths despite being 3lbs wrong at the weights; but he was no match for the same here last time out, eventually finishing fifth.

Given a short break, he turns out here from the same mark, and forgiven that last outing he can do better if able to show the form of his earlier successes. 

4.10 - Flood Defence
4.45 - Tum Tum
5.15 - Chosen World
5.45 - Pea Shooter
6.15 - Rey Loopy
6.45 - Macs Blessings
7.15 - Tellovoi
