TUESDAY JUMPS RACING TIPS – BEST BETS AT HUNTINGDON, WETHERBY AND TAUNTON
2:05 Huntingdon – Racing TV Fillies’ Juvenile Hurdle (GBB Race) Cl4 (4yo) 2m
RAFFLES GITANE showed ability over hurdles in France prior to joining Harry Whittington and the Kapgarde filly made a winning start for her new yard when beating Auditoria by three-parts of a length at Hereford last month.
The front two were well clear of the rest and while the bare form is perhaps nothing special she’s entitled to improve for that initial experience and could again dominate this small field.
She’s bred to be useful with her dam a Grade One winner for Willie Mullins and with the potential for better still she can follow up her debut win for the yard.
2:12 Taunton – Game And Wildlife Conservation Trust Maiden Hurdle (GBB Race) Cl4 4yo+) 2m½f
CAMPROND was a three-time winner on the flat in France for Pia Brant prior to joining Philip Hobbs and the Lope De Vega gelding has made the frame on both starts over timber for his new yard at Huntingdon and Sedgefield respectively.
He found only one too good on the former outing but was possibly unsuited by the soft ground at the latter venue when beaten almost thirty lengths into third behind Pay The Piper.
The hood he wore on that occasion has been discarded for this latest outing which sees him back on a better surface and still early days with the potential for better he could be worth chancing to bounce back from that lesser effort here especially given the winner has won twice more since and the runner-up went in next time out.
He’s been given a break following his last outing and he can bounce back under Richard Johnson.
2:50 Wetherby – Watch Racing TV In Stunning HD Novices’ Hurdle (GBB Race) Cl4 (4yo+) 2m3½f
LESSER won a point-to-point in Ireland prior to joining Richard Phillips and the Stowaway gelding made the perfect introduction for his new yard when running out a wide-margin winner of a Bangor bumper contest on his return from eleven months off.
He won that race readily despite appearing to hit a flat spot on the home turn before staying on strongly and once he took up the running two furlongs out he asserted to store comfortably and there could be more to come now his attentions are switch to hurdles and stepping up in distance.
He looked a potentially useful prospect in that contest and looks worth sticking with to maintain his perfect record now tackling obstacles.
3:10 Huntingdon – Racing TV Mares’ Handicap Hurdle Cl5 (4yo+ 0-100) 3m1f
MIDNIGHT MARY had shown glimpses of ability in a handful of starts over hurdles earlier in the campaign but the application of a tongue tie appeared to help the Midnight Legend mare find some improvement and she got off the mark over course and distance earlier in the month.
Stuart Edmunds’ charge beat Galactic Power by one length, finding plenty from the hurdle to score a shade readily and a subsequent 6lbs rise in the weights could leave her still well-treated given she has plenty of scope to improve.
Still unexposed the headgear she wore last time is retained and she could be worth sticking with to follow up that last success back over the same course and distance.
3:25 Wetherby – Sixt Car Hire Handicap Hurdle Cl4 (4yo+ 0-120) 2m
DEMOCRATIC OATH has shown progress with every start following a move to Keith Dalgleish from Gordon Elliott, finishing third to Bareback Jack on his hurdles debut for this yard at Musselburgh and that form has certainly worked out well.
Following wind surgery he disappointed next time back at Musselburgh behind the same rival although he may just have needed the outing and he got off the mark next time at Sedgefield when beating Sambezi last month by just over two lengths where he made all the running.
The runner-up and third from that contest have both won since to boost the form and a mark of 120 on his handicap debut could prove workable. He likely needs to find a bit more improvement but that wouldn’t come as a surprise to see him do so and he could follow up here.
3:47 Taunton – Ray Wonnacott 80 And Not Out Handicap Hurdle Cl4 (4yo+ 0-120) 2m½f
COPPERLESS has made the frame in all three career starts for Olly Murphy and the well-related Kayf Tara gelding can double his win tally here.
Third in a jumpers’ bumper at Lingfield he returned from wind surgery and nearly eleven months off to find only one too good at Perth in September; that run was bettered when he got the better of Hooper to get off the mark at Market Rasen in October, scoring by a neck.
The front two pulled well clear of the third and the runner-up has done no harm to the form where he’s twice finished runner-up before registering back-to-back win and is now rated 122.
The selection now switches to handicaps where a mark of 117 might underestimate him and the application of a tongue-tie could unlock further improvement so it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see him progress. He could prove a tough nut to crack and he can add to his win tally with further improvement anticipated.
