Tuesday 19 November horse racing tips – Williams’ 2/1 chance can strike at Lingfield
Brian Healy looks ahead to Tuesday's UK and Irish horse racing fixtures and gives his tips for every race.
A much busier Tuesday than has been the case in recent weeks, and five UK and Irish horse racing fixtures go to post throughout the day with jumps racing from Fakenham and Lingfield, as well as from Fairyhouse in Ireland.
Meanwhile, all-weather action takes place in the afternoon on the Kempton polytrack; while in the evening there is a fixture at Chelmsford who also race on polytrack.
Fairyhouse (jumps) – 12.35 – 3.05pm (6 races)
Lingfield (jumps) – 12.30 – 3.30pm (7 races)
Fakenham (jumps) – 1.10 – 3.40pm (6 races)
Kempton (flat, aw) – 1.20 – 4.25pm (7 races)
Chelmsford (flat, aw) – 4.15 – 7.45pm (8 races)
(2.00) LIZZIE LANGTON (5/2, William Hill) won at the second attempt over fences last term, scoring at Wincanton with a wide-margin victory over Tikkapick, and Colin Tizzard’s charge can get back to winning ways here.
The Kayf Tara mare failed to back up that success in a couple of subsequent outings, but she has got back on track with a trio of bronze medal finishes since which includes latest back at Wincanton in March where she was beaten just two lengths behind Gamain.
The winner and runner-up have both win since to boost the form, and having gone well fresh in the past she could be worth chancing to get back on the scoresheet from just 1lb higher in the weights on her reappearance.
(3.00) CUBAN PETE (2/1, Bet365) arrives here on a hat-trick of wins having won over hurdles at Hereford back in March, and then following up on his chase debut following eight months off the track back at that venue earlier this month.
The Flemensfirth gelding latterly ran out a two lengths’ winner over Apple Mack on his return to action and first start over fences, and there ought to be more to come from Venetia Williams’ charge who can defy a further 6lbs rise in the weights here.
Thoroughly unexposed as a chaser, he looks sure to progress further for that first chase outing and he can make the most of his low weight to land his three-timer.
12.30 – Loughnan
1.00 – Karakoram
1.30 – Yaa Salaam
2.00 – Lizzie Langton
2.30 – King D’Argent
3.00 – Cuban Pete
3.30 – Lily The Pink
(1.05) WAKE UP EARLY (9/2, Bet365) faced a couple of stiff tasks on his first couple of starts over fences at Gowran Park in the spring, but Francis Flood’s charge showed much improved form stepped up in trip on his reappearance from more than six months off the track to score at Galway in September.
The Doyen gelding then ran another solid race in defeat when finishing nine lengths’ fourth behind Duhallow Paddy back at Galway last month, and a further step up in trip could help to unlock another jolt of improvement.
He can race from the same mark here, and with the potential for better as a chaser given he remains unexposed then he can go close here.
12.35 – Charlie Stout
1.05 – Wake Up Early
1.35 – Annamix
2.05 – The Very Man
2.35 – Concertista
3.05 – Bythesametoken
(1.40) CHEQUERED VIEW (11/8, Ladbrokes) was a winner here last December, and the Passing Glance mare has been in fair form since returning from six months off the track, getting back to winning ways at Worcester in September with a wide margin defeat of Zara Hope.
Martin Keightley’s charge sported a first-time visor on that occasion, and the headgear helped her to a solid runner-up finish on her next start at Hereford although she was no match for the winner. She did have a subsequent winner behind however, and she can compete here from the same mark whilst also having the services of a good 5lbs claimer for this latest outing.
Unlike her rivals, she arrives here in good heart and if the visor continues to have a positive effect then she ought to prove tough to beat here.
(3.10) MASTER VINTAGE (5/4, Unibet) arrives here on a hat-trick having struck a quick double at Market Rasen and Huntingdon in recent weeks, and the Kayf Tara gelding is turned out under a penalty having beaten From The Heart latest by 13 lengths.
Richard Phillips’ charge made all the running that day, jumping well in front and scoring unchallenged so there is every chance that his 7lbs penalty may not prove enough of a burden towards preventing a follow-up success.
The application of a tongue-tie has had a positive effect, and he is 2-2 in the headgear; the tongue-tie is retained here, and still relatively unexposed as a chaser despite his advancing years he can continue his purple patch to strike again and land his three-timer.
1.10 – Todd
1.40 – Chequered View
2.10 – Paricolor
2.40 – Imperial Aura
3.10 – Master Vintage
3.40 – Viking Ruby
(1.50) BOOK REVIEW (2/1, Unibet) shaped with promise on his debut two weeks ago, finding only one too strong in Salamanca School at Nottingham, beaten just over one length in heavy ground; and the Dubawi colt can go one place better here with that runner under his belt.
John Gosden’s charge ran green early in that first outing before finishing off well and the experience won’t have been lost on him so he is expected to improve now.
One of two runners in the field from the Gosden yard, he could well prove a tough nut to crack here given his potential for progress, and a switch to the all-weather could well see him do better still, and he can open his account now.
(2.20) MONTATHAM (5/1, Paddy Power) has been in good form this campaign, stepping up on his sole run last term to win his first two outings of the new season at Thirsk and Beverley two weeks apart in August.
William Haggas’ Showcasing colt has met with defeat in his last two starts, but he has made the frame on both starts, finishing three lengths’ runner-up when last seen out at Musselburgh where he fluffed the start and possibly used up too much energy early to get back in the race that he faded late on.
The form of his earlier third over this trip at Yarmouth has been boosted, and he steps back up to one mile here where he only has 1lb extra to contend with at the weights, and so he should continue to give a good account if handling the switch to this surface.

(5.15) BAVARDAGES (11/4, William Hill) found some improvement switched to handicaps when beating Kuwaity at Kempton last month to open his win account, and the Dream Ahead colt can find further improvement to follow up.
Mark Johnston’s charge hadn’t shaped without promise in previous starts in novice company, but the step up to seven furlongs appeared to work the oracle as he made all and found plenty to score a shade readily, and there could be more to come from him on the back of that success.
He’s only been raised 3lbs in the weights following that win, and with the potential for better with the additional step up in trip unlikely to present an issue then he could double his win tally here.
(6.45) DARING VENTURE (11/2, William Hill) won on her only previous start over course and distance, beating Molivaliente by three lengths, and Roger Varian’s charge can get back on the scoresheet here.
The Dabirsim filly ran better than the bare result on both subsequent runs at Newmarket and Newcastle respectively, and she may have needed her return from four months off the track when beaten into fourth behind Mendoza at Kempton late last month.
She crossed the line just over three lengths’ adrift, but she has been dropped 1lb since and the application of a hood might help her to eke out some further improvement, so it wouldn’t come as a huge surprise to see her post a big effort back at the scene of her sole triumph.
