Best bets for Tuesday – Tips for Southwell, Fakenham and Newcastle
Tuesday’s fixture list of horse racing takes in four fixtures across the UK and we’ve looked through the cards to pick out our best bets for Tuesday’s racecards.
We go into Tuesday with another trio of UK horse racing fixtures going to post around the country with a mix of all-weather flat racing and jumps action throughout the afternoon and evening.
The afternoon action over the sticks comes from the card at Fakenham, while there is also all-weather racing in the afternoon on the Southwell fibresand. Meanwhile, the day is completed by an evening all-weather card under the floodlights at Newcastle on the tapeta. Unfortunately the scheduled jumps fixture at Lingfield has been lost to the weather with the track waterlogged.
In all 24 races will head to post throughout the day and we’ve looked through each of the racecards to pick out our tips and best bets for Tuesday at every meeting as we bid to find a few winners.
BEST BETS FOR TUESDAY 17 NOVEMBER – TIPS FOR SOUTHWELL, FAKENHAM & NEWCASTLE
12:50 Southwell – Play 4 To Win At Betway Handicap (Div II) Cl6 (3yo+ 0-60) 5f
NAVAJO DAWN reeled off a brace of wins over this course and distance back in January and while the Dawn Approach filly hasn’t been in the same form since it might be worth sticking with Robyn Brisland’s charge to get back to winning ways.
The three-year old struck both those wins from marks higher than this and most of her subsequent runs have come on turf or polytrack which perhaps haven’t suited her as well as this surface. Indeed she turned in a better effort back here in August when finishing a fair fifth to Undercover Brother.
Never a factor following a slow start at Nottingham last month she could do better back on this surface where her handicap mark continues to slide and now 7lbs below her last winning mark she can go close if things go her way.
1:03 Fakenham – Weatherbys Racing Bank Novices’ Handicap Chase (A Fakenham Double Up Bonus Race) (GBB Race) Cl4 (4yo+ 0-120) 3m
RUMBLE B was sent off 80/1 when finishing a very good third behind the reopposing Gleno at Lingfield last month and is taken to overturn that form in this rematch.
Sarah Humprhey’s Presenting gelding looked a moderate sort over hurdles last term and he faced a very stiff task on his first start over the larger obstacles on his return at Stratford in September where he failed to beat a rival behind Darling Maltaix.
He ran a lot better last time out and showed the benefit of the experience when beaten just two lengths behind Gary Moore’s reopposing winner, not helped by making a mistake at the last hurdle before running on again.
That race has thrown up a winner since and he finds himself 3lbs better off at the weights with his last-time conquerer who is much more experienced over the larger obstacles. The weight concession might be enough this time around to see the selection come out on top and less exposed than Gary Moore’s rival after just two chase starts he could progress to gain some revenge this time around.
His best hurdles run came at this track so the tight turns shouldn’t prove an issue and he can go well if building on that encouraging run last time out.
1:50 Southwell – Read Katie Walsh On Betway Insider Handicap Cl6 (3yo+ 0-60) 1m6f
MR CARBONATOR hasn’t won for more than two years, posting his latest success over one mile at this venue in January 2018.
Despite failing to add to that win since the Bated Breath gelding has run a number of solid races since on turf and the all-weather and recent efforts suggest that Phil Kirby’s charge could be about to end his drought.
His last three starts over twelve furlongs have all come at this venue and he’s made the frame each time although he has failed to trouble the winner in his last couple of runs. That said the form of his latest third place finish behind Son Of Red is decent for this grade and the runner-up and fifth horses home have both done little to harm the form since with respective runner-up efforts on their next starts.
This further step up in trip could yet deliver an overdue success and racing from the same mark here for his in-form yard then he ought to make his presence felt once more.
2:33 Fakenham – Sculthorpe Mares’ Handicap Hurdle Cl3 (4yo+ 0-130) 2m
GETARIVER won a Ludlow contest over hurdles back in November last year having won both her starts in bumpers and Dan Skelton’s charge can get back on the winning trail here.
The Getaway mare also won a jumpers’ bumper at Wolverhampton in February and she made her return in a decent Uttoxeter chase won by Fusil Raffles where she didn’t convince as a chaser when failing to beat a rival.
Of course she might have needed the run and she showed up better back at Stratford last month when beaten one length into second behind Diamond Gate although she arguably should have won that race.
Run down late in the day by the winner it could be argued that she may just have gone off a shade too hard; but only 2lbs higher in the weights here she could make amends with this tight track likely to suit and she could prove hard to peg back if given her own way up front.
5:15 Newcastle – Ladbrokes Watch Racing Online For Free Nursery Handicap Cl5 (2yo 0-70) 5f
TAPETEN TONY has been steadily progressive this term and the Mehmas colt finally made the breakthrough when successful at Chelmsford earlier this month when beating Toplight by a half-length over this trip.
Karl Burke’s charge was well-drawn that day and benefited from the strong pace to win a shade cosily so there may be more still to come from him and he can follow up that success despite a 5lbs ise in the weights.
This does like a slightly tougher contest but now he has got his head in front he might be able to find another jolt of improvement to figure prominently again and no surprise to see him going close.
6:15 Newcastle – Bombardier British Hopped Amber Beer Handicap (Div II) Cl6 (3yo+ 0-60) 1m
It has been a while since CHOSEN WORLD last tasted success but judging on his last couple of efforts it may not be too much longer before Julie Camacho’s charge get back on the scoresheet.
The Intikhab gelding has found only one too good on each of his last two outings at this venue, beaten three-parts of a length behind Great Colaci last month – that one has won again since – and latterly denied only a head by Khazaf over a furlong shorter eleven days ago where he just failed to overhaul the winner.
That form has been franked and only 4lbs higher here he might be able to get back on the scoresheet given he remains well-handicapped on old form having won off 65 and placed from 73 in the past so a mark of 59 is very workable back up in trip.
There’s no obvious pace in this race which is a slight worry, but he ought to continue to make his presence felt and he can go close.
