Wednesday’s 2,683/1 Lucky 15 – Racing Tips Best Bets on December 15
Horse Racing Tips on Wednesday, December 15th
Racing Tips’ Lucky 15 for Wednesday contains horses running at all four meetings in Great Britain. Find out who makes our expert tipster’s best bets for our 2,683/1 Lucky 15 below.
Let’s Have Another (1:05 Leicester)
Both Sholokjack for the Skeltons and Catch The Swallows for Venetia Williams and Charlie Deutsch are interesting off the back of some top point-to-point form in their past.
However, neither has yet been asked to perform over hurdles in public. That is not the case with Olly Murphy’s LET’S HAVE ANOTHER who could represent some value in opposition.
Third in his only bumper to a horse who has already won twice over hurdles, he was never asked to extend himself beyond capacity on his hurdles debut at Warwick by Aidan Coleman. Even then, he was a respectable fourth and though the form of that race is questionable, it looked like there could be something saved in the tank.
With that experience now behind him, he looks comfortably the pick of those who have had run under rules. Race fitness should also be a factor in his favour.
I K Brunel (1:25 Newbury)
Initially a very promising novice hurdler, I K BRUNEL might not have scaled Graded heights in his career, but he could well be up to winning a handicap chase at this level.
He has yet to win in three starts over fences, but couldn’t have gone closer on his first and this trip slightly short of three miles is likely to prove ideal for him. His most recent third-placed finish came after a layoff, as well as being his second run after wind surgery. He was within 10 lengths that day and has been dropped a further 3lbs.
That leaves him on a mark of 127 which is easily a career low and with his connections in the best form they could possibly be, he looks more than a fair price.
Pillars Of Earth (2:55 Lingfield)
With two wins in his four starts for trainer William Stone, PILLARS OF EARTH might not have stopped that trend just yet.
His first victory at Yarmouth came on his second start for the yard in October and while he disappointed at Leicester, he bounced back on the all-weather at Chelmsford. Stone suggested that the longer break between races (there were just six days between his Yarmouth and Leicester runs) was to his benefit and there has been a similar break for this race.
From the bottom of the weights and with Laura Pearson’s 3lb claim to help, he can continue his upward trend with conditions in his favour.
Adace (3:45 Kempton)
Poor Liam Jones had a panicky moment out the stalls with ADACE on the pair’s recent outing at Chelmsford.
The jockey struggled to get his filly’s blindfold off as the stalls opened, ensuring Adace was slower into stride than her opponents. Nevertheless, she still stayed on to be second, beaten only a head and would surely have won without the inconvenience.
If Dean Ivory’s three-year-old behaves herself in the preliminaries a bit more, she is only 1lb higher than for that troublesome recent start and had won on her previous outing. Her jockey that day, Jimmy Quinn, is back on board and taken to get that tune out of her once again.
