Neil Morrice: UK Racing Best Bets - Sunday 01 November 2020

International Racing - Sunday 30 August 2020

Neil Morrice brings us all of his best bets and tips for Sunday's racing coming your way from the Carlisle, Hungtingdon, and Lingfield. 

CARLISLE
 

Race 3 No1 INSTANT REPLAY

Trainer: Brian Ellison - Jockey: Henry Brooke

 

INSTANT REPLAY towers above his foes on chase ratings and has the advantage of a readying run when third in a novice hurdle at this course. Back handicap hurdling for the first time in two years, the Sedgefield specialist can make light of his welter burden on ground conditions that are ideal.

 

Race 4 No4 BLACK OP (Nap)

Trainer: Tom George - Jockey: Jonathan Burke

 

At nine BLACK OP is the oldest member of the party in this intermediate chase, but with limited appearances in public and now coming back from a more than 300-day break the gelding can put his best for forward. He chased home top class rivals in Graded chases against Champ at Newbury and Slate House at Kempton and still has the time to realise his potential. Cheltenham Festival scorer Imperial Aura appeals as the main threat.

 

Race 6 No4 LATE ROMANTIC

Trainer: Oliver Greenall - Jockey: Brian Hughes

 

Soft ground holds no perils for LATE ROMANTIC who as a horse that goes well fresh shouldn’t be inconvenienced in coming back from a protracted break. The ten-year-old scored on his seasonal reappearance at Wetherby last season and also when last seen at Kelso before lockdown.

HUNTINGDON


Race 4 No6 THE VOLLAN

Trainer: Charlie Longsdon - Jockey: Sam Twiston-Davies

 

Having run well for a long way before getting tired at Bangor, THE VOLLAN should appreciate competing in a smaller field back in a novice chase. He gets a handy 10lb from the penalised Senior Citizen and can seize advantage.

 

Race 5 No7 DALLAS COWBOY (Nap)

Trainer: Paula Smith - Jockey: Emma Smith-Chaston

 

DALLAS COWBOY has thrived since joining his trainer at the start of the 2019/2020 season, winning two handicap chases and being placed in two more. He’s a strong travelling front runner that has set up a fine understanding with his rider. This easy track should play to his strengths, given that his best efforts have come at similarly untainted venues.

 

Race 7 No1 WEST TO CROSSGALES

Trainer: Charles Pogson - Jockey: Cillin Leonard

 

The summer jumps form of WEST TO CROSSGALES reads well in the context of this first division of the handicap chase. He’s earned in all three starts and comes here freshened-up after a two month break. He has to concede plenty of weight but the 7lb claim of his capable pilot eases his burden to make him an attractive betting proposition.

 

LINGFIELD

Race 5 No1 ALAPHILIPPE

Trainer: Fergal O’Brien - Jockey: Max Kendrick

 

Former Irish point-to-pointer ALAPHILIPPE made a perfect start for new connections when taking out a Ffos Las bumper. He’s adapted well to jumping hurdles at home, while his trainer has his team in tip top form

 

Race 7 No3 KENNY GEORGE (Nap)

Trainer: Sheena West - Jockey: Joshua Moore


KENNY GEORGE belied his 50-1 odds when only just out of the money in an apprentice handicap at Newbury, a run that is thought to have put the edge on him for this return to hurdles. He’s done well for his trainer since being bought out of the bargain basement and can continue the good form shown by runners from his yard in recent weeks.
