UK Racing Tips - Thursday 27 February 2020

Neil Morrice brings us all of his best bets and tips for Thursday's racing at Chelmsford City, Newcastle, Ludlow, and Taunton. 


Chelmsford City 
Best Bet


Race 1: ICE ICE LADY (1)
Trainer: Archie Watson 
Jockey: Adam McNamara

ICE ICE LADY got the job done in a very professional manner on her debut at Lingfield last week. She has to shoulder a penalty for the clear cut success but can strike while the iron’s hot.

Race 3: NIGHT VOYAGER (6) 
Trainer: James Tate  
Jockey: PJ McDonald

On his third start NIGHT VOYAGER should be ready to deliver, having shown plenty of improvement when second to Sansevero over seven furlongs here earlier in the month. He should appreciate this longer trip, having finished off his race strongly, while he’s drawn to get a good early position from which to counter in the straight.

Newcastle Best Bets

Race 2: PAPA POWER (2) 
Trainer: Andrew Balding 
Jockey: Silvestre De Sousa 

This looks a match between Da Vinci and PAPA POWER, preference being for the latter who has the greater experience and was hugely impressive when opening his account at Chelmsford. His forcing tactics soon had the field strung out and he came home unchallenged, form which is arguably better than Da Vinci’s debut triumph over the same course and distance.

Race 3: PADDLEYOUROWNCANOE (7) 
Trainer: Colin Tizzard 
Jockey: Silvestre De Sousa 

The completion of a hat-trick beckons for PADDLEYOUROWNCANOE even though the 6yo takes a jump up the class ladder. His connections are sparing with their runners on the Flat, but this horse looks to be progressing at a good rate of knots judging by the way he bolted up on Fibresand last month.

Ludlow Best Bets

Race 3: THE NEWEST ONE (5) 
Trainer: Nigel Twiston-Davies 
Jockey: Sam Twiston-Davies

THE NEWEST ONE will never be able to emulate The New One but connections appear to have found a good opportunity for him in this handicap hurdle. Although beaten a long way behind Palladium at Sandown earlier in the month he could be a different proposition over this much longer distance.

Race 5: KILCONNY BRIDGE (3)
Trainer: Anthony Honeyball  
Jockey: Ben Godfrey 

Prolific scorer KILCONNY BRIDGE looked a handicapper to follow when strolling home at Exeter and looks a mare to follow until beaten. She faces a field of hold up horses, meaning she could get onto an uncontested lead.

Race 7: ALL GOOD THINGS (7) 
Trainer: Matt Sheppard 
Jockey: Stan Sheppard 

ALL GOOD THINGS has enjoyed a nice break since chasing home a decent yardstick at Uttoxeter in December and looks to hold solid claims with a capable conditional on his back. The strong traveller might have recent winner Demopolis give him most trouble.

Taunton Best Bets

Race 4: MISTER MURCHAN (5) 
Trainer: Richard Rowe
Jockey: James Davies 


MISTER MURCHAN is consistency personified and has solid claims to return to winning ways in this long-distance handicap hurdle. The 7yo travelled best at Huntingdon last month but was beaten to the punch by The Composeur. He’s pleased his trainer in recent work and schooling.

Race 7: TIME TO TINKER (8)
Trainer: Paul Nicholls 
Jockey: Harry Cobden 

With an encouraging first run under his belt TIME TO TINKER will be a warm order for the concluding bumper and should deliver for the champion trainer. It was in a 16-runner field that he found only Picanha too strong at Exeter.
