ITV7 Selections for Wednesday’s Exeter Meeting
The popular free-to-play ITV7 competition provides players with the opportunity to win real cash prizes by identifying the winners of seven select races. This Wednesday’s competition centres around Exeter’s jumps card, with £1,000 on offer for the winner. We have provided tips for all seven races below – which make up our advised ITV7.
TIP TOP CAT – Race 1 (12:40pm Exeter)
The opening ITV7 race can go the way of TIP TOP CAT, who had some smart form to his name last season, including runs behind the likes of McFabulous and Lieutenant Rocco.
He made a promising debut to life for this yard when a close third at Ludlow last month and the winner has franked that form by going in again since. Running off 2lb lower here, he can get off the mark.
I AM MAXIMUS – Race 2 (1:10pm Exeter)
Although being off the track for over a year is an obvious concern, it is difficult to get away from the claims of I AM MAXIMUS, who is a perfect 1-1 thus far. That victory came in a Cheltenham bumper last October, and the form has since been franked fantastically by the runner-up My Drogo, who claimed Grade 1 honours at Aintree in the spring.
LORD ACCORD – Race 3 (1:40pm Exeter)
Neil Mulholland’s LORD ACCORD made a perfect start to life in this sphere when scoring at Uttoxeter last month. That form has received multiple boosts since and a 3lb rise looks far from excessive considering that he should benefit from the step back up to 3m.
NORDIC COMBINED – Race 4 (2:10pm Exeter)
Quite an open handicap in prospect here, and it might be worth taking a chance on David Pipe’s NORDIC COMBINED. This 7yo has some smart form to his name over hurdles and has found himself on a mark as high as 133 in this sphere.
He is currently rated just 125, which looks decidedly workable on the pick of last season’s efforts, and a recent pipe opener at Cheltenham should have blown away any cobwebs.
ANY NEWS – Race 5 (2:40pm Exeter)
A useful novice hurdler last season, ANY NEWS shaped as though he could improve for the switch to fences when a close second at Warwick in September.
Although not quite at that level when third at Cheltenham subsequently, that looked a well-above-average race and he had some smart sorts comfortably beaten. Today’s race looks weaker, with those towards the head of the market lacking race fitness, and therefore he looks a big player off a mark of 141.
STORM FORCE BEN – Race 6 (3:10pm Exeter)
STORM FORCE BEN was twice placed in handicaps at this venue over hurdles, most recently when second in January to Sandymount Rose, who is now rated 15lb higher over hurdles.
He found testing ground against him when last seen, but reappears on a sounder surface for his chasing debut and this looks like a winnable assignment if back to anywhere near his best form.
MIND SUNDAY – Race 7 (3:40pm Exeter)
A tricky closer which can go the way of MIND SUNDAY, who made an exciting debut for this yard when running out a comfortable winner at Newbury in March.
She disappointed in Grade 2 company subsequently, but a line can be put through that run and dropped back in grade for her hurdles debut better can be expected.
