Horse Racing Tips on Thursday, February 10

There are four meetings spread across Britain on Thursday, February 10th with the action coming from Doncaster, Ffos Las, Huntingdon and Newcastle. Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across the cards, which make up our advised Thursday Lucky 15.


Flamenco De Kerser (1.25 Huntingdon)

Richenda Ford may be a name unfamiliar to some, but the Dorset handler is enjoying a productive season and will be hoping that FLAMENCO DE KERSER can enhance that with victory in Huntingdon’s opening M1 Agency Novices’ Handicap Hurdle.

This 7yo has recorded an RPR of 105-108 in each of his five starts for connections, showcasing a clear engine having tended to travel powerfully through his races.

Early keenness has resulted in his finishing kick perhaps lacking in purpose, but on his 2021 runs behind the likes of Go Dante (now 128-rated over hurdles) and Timberman (now 125-rated over hurdles), there are surely races to be won with him off a mark in the mid 100s.

If the addition of a first-time tongue tie manages to unlock even marginal improvement from Flamenco De Kerser he should prove bang there at the business end on a track that is expected to suit.


Little Red Lion (3.37 Ffos Las)

The 3m Good Luck Simon Rowlands Handicap Chase appears to provide David Pipe’s LITTLE RED LION with a good opportunity to get his hand back in front.

The Caroline Tisdall owned 8yo won every start he completed last season, benefitting from the addition of blinkers when going in over hurdles at Chepstow.

He failed to complete on reappearance at Exeter in December, and could only muster a distant sixth at Lingfield last month, but those efforts came at 0-130 and 0-135 level, and he drops into a 0-110 handicap chase here off a mark of 112, which is just 1lb above his last winning chase mark.

Tom Scudamore is remarkably only riding Little Red Lion for the second time in his 14-race career today, with Scu last aboard for the gelding’s racecourse debut which coincidently came in a bumper here at Ffos Las when chasing home the 130+ rated hurdler Stick With Bill.

Thursday Lucky 15 Tips. David Pipe can train a winner on the Ffos Las card.


Mengli Khan (3.45 Huntingdon)

A former Grade 1 winning novice hurdler, MENGLI KHAN is clearly not the force he once was but showed he retained a fair chunk of ability when runner-up at Kempton last month, and he is worth backing to go one spot better in Huntingdon’s M1 Agency Handicap Hurdle.

This now 9yo found only his clearly well-treated stablemate First Street too strong last time out, and the handicapper has somewhat kindly dropped Mengli Khan 1lb since.

Factoring his conditional’s 7lb claim into the equation also, Mengli Khan runs off an enticing mark here and this 19.5f trip on a right-handed sharp track is almost identical to the conditions that produced his last two victories for Gordon Elliott.

Thunder Rock is expected to prove a warm order here but his hurdling technique hasn’t been the most fluent so far, and second favourite Dorking Boy may now need further to be seen at his best. This opens the door for Mengli Khan to get back in the winner’s circle.


Moonamacaroona (4.20 Doncaster)

Alan King and Brian Hughes team up for some good chances on the Doncaster card, with the list including MOONAMACAROONA, who looks a live contender in the concluding Virgin Bet Mares’ Handicap Hurdle.

This daughter of Flemensfirth is certainly bred for obstacles being from the family of three-time Gold Cup hero Best Mate. Although a dual bumper winner last season, arguably her best performance came in defeat when third at Market Rasen to the now 126-rated Doctor Ken and 135-rated Luttrell Lad.

Moonamacaroona has had the three starts over hurdles this season, the best of those being a 3/4l defeat at Market Rasen in November.

She wasn’t at that level at Fontwell latest, yet the soft ground was probably the cause of that underperformance, and she has received wind surgery prior to making her handicap debut today, which comes back on a sounder surface. If those factors spark a revival in form then Moonamacaroona looks a potentially well-handicapped horse running off an opening mark of 107.

Thursday Lucky 15 Tips. Brian Hughes can land the Doncaster finale aboard Moonamacaroona.
