Neil Morrice: International Racing - Tuesday 22 December 2020

Neil Morrice Best Bets

Neil Morrice brings us all of his best bets and tips from Huntingdon, Sedgefield and Lingfield on Tuesday 22 December 2020. 

HUNTINGDON

 

Race 1 No13 POLDARK CROSS (Nap)

Trainer: Harry Whittington - Jockey: Gavin Sheehan

 

POLDARK CROSS finished second on debut for this yard in a Wetherby novice that has worked out especially well. The winner Fern Hill defied a penalty and the selection returns from a freshening break. One or two from the yard came back with dirty noses, but have been given an enforced break ready for the Christmas period.

 

Race 2 No10 DING DING (Each Way)

 

Although 90 % of her racing happens at Plumpton, DING DING can show she’s effective on a right-handed course. It’s the first time in more than four years that she’s been asked to race this way, but following a pleasing run to chase home an in-form foe last time the nine-year-old can reward each way support.

 

Race 6 No13 SPEECH BUBBLE

Trainer: Noel Williams - Jockey: Jonjo O’Neill Jr

 

SPEECH BUBBLE landed some good bets in style in deep ground on debut at Ffos Las. Cut in the ground is essential for her, and while this is a far more taxing assignment on paper, she can take the scalps of nine other winners in the field in one of the hottest bumpers run here in recent years.

SEDGEFIELD

 

Race 2 No1 ALAPHILIPPE (Nap)

Trainer: Fergal O’Brien - Jockey: Paddy Brennan

 

ALAPHILIPPE defends a two race unbeaten record for connections and comes here after missing out on an abandonment last week. The winning Irish pointer was impressive in taking out a bumper and a maiden hurdle and should be too good for his rivals under a penalty.

 

Race 3 No7 BEET TOPPER

Trainer: Fergal O’Brien - Jockey: Paddy Brennan

 

There’s been money for BEET TOPPER on both outings for his trainer but the support ended up going west. A first time hood didn’t seem to help at Leicester last time and is now dispensed with, but this looks an easier task for a horse that’s getting plenty of weight and has travelled a long way. He’s worth another chance.

 

Race 7 No2 FONZERELLI

Trainer: Keith Dalgleish - Jockey: Craig Nichol

 

These colours have been carried by some useful jumpers and FONZERELLI can prove a bet worth waiting for on debut under Rules in the nightcap. She had to dig deep to score on her only point outing in Ireland but has shown plenty at home since joining the Dalgleish stable.

Race 4 No1 CAMPEAO (Nap)

Trainer: David Simcock - Jockey: Jamie Spencer

 

Unless newcomers La Tihaty or Darwell Lion are pretty smart this should be a straightforward task for CAMPEAO. The Acclamation colt has to also contend with a tricky draw, but the selection has earned in both all-weather starts and was backed as if defeat was out of the question only to find Zaajel his master at Kempton last time. Now he can show the losses to be merely lent.

 

Race 6 No9 SEA LA ROSA

Trainer: William Haggas - Jockey: Tom Marquand

 

SEA LA ROSA can take out this novice stakes in the colours of her sire Sea The Stars. She’s troubled the judge on both career starts at Wolverhampton and is bred to enjoy the step up to a mile and a quarter for top connections.
