SUNDAY UK RACING TIPS – BEST BETS FOR THE DAY’S JUMPS RACING FIXTURES
1:20 Lingfield – Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Novices’ Handicap Hurdle Cl5 (3yo+ 0-105) 2m7f
MINI CREST has hinted that it won’t be long before she’s winning judging on her recent runs which have seen the Flemensfirth mare finish third at Market Rasen and runner-up latterly at Worcester at this trip and Olly Murphy’s charge can go one better here.
She has now placed in three of her five starts over hurdles as well as twice in bumpers so there is definite ability and her latest outing saw her beaten just over one length behind Czech Her Out, not helped by making a mistake at the final obstacle.
A winner has since come out of that race and while a 3lbs rise demands a little more from here she could deliver equipped with first-time cheekpieces now and on the back of a break.
1:40 Huntingdon – Follow @MansionBet On Twitter Juvenile Hurdle (GBB Race) Cl4 (3yo) 2m
SAINT RIQUIER shaped well on his hurdles debut at Ludlow earlier in the month, finishing fourth to Mister Allegro and with that run and experience under his belt Ian Williams’ charge can get off the mark at the second attempt.
A fair sort in France where he was a winner he took a little time to warm up to hurdles on that debut, making a few mistakes on the way round including at the last. Both the winner and runner-up have gone on to win again with the runner-up also finding only one too good in a Listed race at Wetherby two days ago.
The form of that debut looks solid then and there might be better to come and with cheekpieces now applied he can find some improvement to open his account onjust his second start.
1:55 Lingfield – Follow @AtTheRaces On Twitter Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase (GBB Race) Cl3 (4yo+ 0-135) 2m7½f
NESTOR PARK is winless over fences but the Walk In The Park gelding might be able to end that statistic here and Ben Pauling’s charge can get off the mark.
A fair sort over hurdles with two wins in that sphere he often ran well in defeat over fences last term, finishing runner-up three times before tackling the National Hunt Chase at the Cheltenham Festival where he pulled up behind Galvin and this is a much more suitable test on his reappearance.
He finished runner-up last term on his return to action so there is hope he can run well again fresh while his stable has started the campaign well and he’s been dropped 2lbs with Luca Morgan’s 5lbs allowance a further bonus so he is handicapped to run well and there’d be no surprise if he were to go close here.
2:00 Carlisle – Colin Parker Memorial Intermediate Chase (Listed Race) (GBB Race) Cl1 (4yo+) 2m4f
ESPOIR DE ROMAY has chase experience on his side having ran four times over the larger obstacles, winning twice and unfortunate to bump into the high-class Royale Pagaille at Haydock before falling at Aintree in the Mildmay where he was in front two out when falling.
The Kap Rock gelding would have finished ahead of reopposing Fiddlerontheroof on that occasion and he looks one who could find plenty of progress this term where he can develop into a very smart staying chaser.
There’s a chance he may need this as many from the yard have seemed to have needed their first outing, but if turning out here fit to race then he could make his presence felt and he can reward punters with a return to winning ways on his seasonal debut.
2:35 Carlisle – DMB Building Ltd Handicap Hurdle (GBB Race) Cl2 (4yo+ 0-150) 2m4f
It might be worth chancing on a return to winning ways from top-weight CAPTAIN ZEBO who is unbeaten here and the Brian Boru gelding ought to find this assignment a bit more suitable than the Select Hurdle he took in last time.
James Dixon’s charge finished last of six on that occasion, but he had won all five prior starts for this handler in the wake of a switch from Mouse Morris’ charge, posting four of this wins here which includes in soft ground.
Grade Two company proved too much for him when last seen, but he returns at a more suitable level and he’s won several times when fresh so there’d be no surprise to see him running a big race on his reappearance.
2:50 Huntingdon – MansionBet Best Odds Guaranteed Novices’ Chase (GBB Race) Cl3 (4yo+) 2m4f
CADZAND won three of his five starts over hurdles last term as well as tackling the Befair Hurdle for which he was sent off favourite but could only finish mid-division; but he bounced back quickly to score at Southwell and Dan Skelton’s charge can progress again this term now tackling fences.
The Stowaway gelding looks the type to do well in this sphere having had some experience between the flags prior to joining this yard, winning for Sophie Lacey at Charlton Horethorne and there could be plenty to come from him now tackling the larger obstacles.
He defied a double-penalty when last seen scoring over the smaller obstacles and the Skelton team are beginning to fire after a slow start so with potential to make his mark here he looks worth siding with to make a winning reappearance.
