Horse Racing Tips on Thursday, December 2
There are four meetings spread across Britain on Thursday with the action coming from Chelmsford, Leicester, Market Rasen and Wincanton. Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across Thursday’s cards, which make up our advised Thursday Lucky 15.
Galileo Silver (12:45 Wincanton)
There is not a lot of depth to this Amateur jockey’s race but it might be worth chancing a resurgence from GALILEO SILVER who is yet to transfer his hurdling efforts to the larger obstacles as of yet.
Sam Thomas’ six-year-old was fancied in the betting when reappearing this season, going off the second favourite on just his second chasing start but appeared to need that run and tired late on, however, that came against much classier opponents compared to those he will face on Thursday.
The yard applies blinkers tomorrow in the hope of sparking some exuberance from Galileo Silver in his racing and interestingly leading amateur jockey Will Biddick is set to ride which suggests a big run is expected.
Nordano (14:07 Leicester)
The five-year-old has now become a very well handicapped individual after scoring off a mark of 128 when last visiting the winner’s enclosure at Ascot in Class 2 company.
NORDANO returned this campaign after a 201 day-break when not beaten far at Lingfield in a Class 3 event and showed encouraging signs for that return to action over 2m7f.
The drop back to 2m4f looks ideal and Nordano can tackle a Class 4 race for the first time since 2019 where he has recorded two easy victories. Jockey Jamie Moore maintains the partnership with the five-year-old and this free going sort can register a fourth career victory now down to a mark of 119.
Misscarlett (14:52 Market Rasen)
This looks like a weak contest with very few of the field showing much in their latest starts. However, that is not the case with Malinas Island and MISSCARLETT who both registered wins last time out.
Preference though is for the Philip Kirby trained mare who bounced back to winning ways last time out over course and distance after a string of recent placed efforts.
A 3lb rise for that last time out success is manageable in a race of this nature and the seven-year-old won’t find many better opportunities to notch up another career success.
Dutch Decoy (17:30 Chelmsford)
Mark Johnston’s DUTCH DECOY looks worth following in the 7f handicap now that the four-year-old has dropped below his last winning mark.
Dutch Decoy has shown in recent starts that a win is not too far away after not being beaten far in the last two occasions over 7f and 1mile. That run over 1mile last time out seemed to stretch his stamina, and it’s worth noting his three career wins have come at 6f and twice at 7f.
The drop back in trip should certainly suit and connections have brought him back to a track where he has solid course figures of 1-3-4.
