UK Racing Tips - Monday 16 December 2019

Jockeys ride horses

Neil Morrice brings us all of his best bets and tips for Monday's racing at Ffos Las, Plumpton and Wolverhampton. 

Ffos Las Best Bets
Race 1: TARA WELL (11) (Each Way)
Trainer: Nicky Henderson 
Jockey: Daryl Jacob

There’s a lot to like about TARA WELL who having threatened to deliver can now convert. The 9yo loves this testing ground and should be cherry ripe following a very solid effort at Uttoxeter when strong in the market.

Race 5: DEJA VUE (3)
Trainer: Anthony Honeyball 
Jockey: Aidan Coleman 

DEJA VUE has been getting better race by race and sets the standard for the others to aim at. He absolutely hacked up over course and distance last time, and though raised 8lb looked good value for his winning margin.

Plumpton Best Bets

Race 5: SIXTIES SECRET (3) (Each Way)
Trainer: Sheena West 
Jockey: Marc Goldstein 

SIXTIES SECRET has knocked on the door and is a winner waiting to happen. She needs to turn things around with Scrutinise on their running here a fortnight ago but has bloomed in that period. The respective prices on these revised terms make Sixties Secre the value Each Way play.

Race 7: FALBERTO (12)
Trainer: Sam Thomas 
Jockey: Jonjo O’Neill Jnr

The jockey booking tells you a lot regarding the chances of FALBERTO opening his account in this concluding bumper. The selection wasn’t streetwise on his debut at Chepstow but with the benefit of that run behind him can now show his true colours. This doesn’t look an especially warm race, and he is the one to beat.
Wolverhampton Best Bets
Race 4: AUGUSTUS CAESAR (2)
Trainer: David O’Meara 
Jockey: Danny Tudhope  

The progression shown by AUGUSTUS CAESAR when scoring at Lingfield last time smacks of a horse on the up and up. Raised 7lb for that all the way success, he can transfer the form to this different surface and prove more than a handful for his largely out of form foes.
