RACING TIPS FOR MONDAY – BEST BEST FOR THE DAY’S ALL-WEATHER & JUMPS FIXTURES
1:05 Kempton – Try Our New Price Boosts At Unibet Handicap (Div II) Cl6 (3yo+ 0-60) 1m
CHILLSEA has got better with each start, continuing her race-by-race progression following a switch from Richard Fahey to get off the mark over seven furlongs at Wolverhampton last month, digging deep, and the Mshawish filly cann follow up.
Tom Ward’s charge responded well to pressure to register a three-parts of a length victory and only up 2lbs she ought to remain competitive with further improvement anticipated over this extra furlong which ought to suit judging on the evidence of that latest start.
Assuming that she handles polytrack then it wouldn’t be a huge shock to see her involved at the finish and she ought to go well again here where she can follow up that breakthrough victory and make it 2-2 since joining the yard.
2:25 Hereford – Cazoo Novices’ Handicap Chase (GBB Race) Cl4 (4yo+ 0-120) 2m5f
FRENCHY DU LARGE looks the type who could go onto better things now facing fences and the Al Namix gelding can make a winning reappearance to back up last season’s season-ending victory over timber.
Venetia Williams’ charge made the frame on all four starts in bumpers and last season over hurdles he showed steadily progressive form, placing in three of four starts before getting off the mark at the fifth attempt at Ludlow in February, beating Bells of Peterboro.
Now trying fences there could be better to come and he might have been let in lightly here by the handicapper judging on his hurdles form with that Ludlow win working out well. His yard does quite well with these types and he could improve now tackling fences.
3:05 Kempton – Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Floodlit Stakes (Listed Race) Cl1 (3yo+) 1m4f
DUBAI FUTURE makes his belated return to UK racing action having last been seen contesting in the Emirates and Saeed bin Suroor’s charge can get back to winning ways here.
The Dubawi gelding has proven himself a smart performer and he won over this course and distance on his only previous try so there’s little to fear on his return having gone well fresh in the past.
A Listed handicap winner at Meydan in February he found only one too good in the City Of Gold before being brushed aside my Mishriff in the Sheema Classic and on the pick of her form back on these shores she ought to prove a tough nut to crack.
Assuming his top yard has him fully tuned up ahead of this reappearance which is a step down in class from recent outings then he should make his presence felt and a repeat of his last run in Meydan would surely be good enough to take this Listed prize.
3:25 Hereford – Ultimate Jumps Guide On attheraces.com/Jump Mares’ Handicap Hurdle Cl4 (4yo+ 0-120) 2m
PELTWELL kept his winning sequence going at Huntingdon on her reappearance earlier in the month, abeit a shade fortunate, but the Milan mare can build on that run and ought to remain competitive despite the handicapper applying a bit more pressure.
Neil Mulholland’s charge has now won five on the spin and that latest victory came on her return from almost 200 days off the track when beating Fanfan Du Seuil by three lengths although it is debatable whether she would have won had one not crashed out at the last.
She is entitled to strip fitter for the run however and a 5lbs rise makes life a little tougher for her. However she could have further progress to come and this track ought to suit so another big run wouldn’t come as a shock.
3:45 Plumpton – Beavis Morgan Handicap Hurdle Cl3 (3yo+ 0-125) 2m
SEA PRINCE has won two of his four hurdles starts to date, posting victories at Hexham and Cartmel either side of an unseat at Southwell where he was leading the field and still travelling quite well when departing three out.
Alex Hales’ charge was last seen finishing just one length runner-up behind Lord Caprio back at Hexham in August after a short break and that is a creditable effort given he was conceding 23lbs to the winner.
The form of that race has also been boosted with the third and fourth horses home both winning since and while another 4lbs rise in the weights asks more of him he could prove equal to the task given he remains open to improvement.
4:00 Wolverhampton – MansionBet Proud Partners Of AWC Handicap Cl6 (3yo+ 0-52) 1m½f
BOY GEORGE has just one win in 31 starts on the level but the Equiano gelding has proven very consistent in defeat in recent runs and it might be worth chancing Dominic Ffrench Davis’ charge to double his tally.
The four-year old has made the frame in each of his last six starts – five runner-up finishes and a win at Chelmsford two runs ago – and he was only beaten a neck when last seen behind Lake Sand at that venue four days ago.
He was only run down late in the day on that occasion and he can compete here from the same mark where he’s proven over this course and distance and another bold show wouldn’t come as a surprise assuming this doesn’t come too soon.
