Neil Morrice: UK Best Bets - Tuesday 9 February 2021

Neil Morrice Best Bets

Neil Morrice brings you all of his best bets and tips for Tuesday's racing coming your way from Kempton Park and Southwell.














KEMPTON PARK

Race 3 No:12 KENTUCKY HARDBOOT (Each Way)
Trainer: Mohammed Moubarak - Jockey: Jack Quinlan

KENTUCKY HARDBOOT took some decent hurdling form 8ntonthe jumper-bumper arena and duly ran a cracker when getting pipped in the final stride by Atomic Jack at Lingfield. As a four-year-old, he gets weight for age from all but one of his rivals and can again prove competitive against strong opposition from Castel Gandolfo and Hooper.

Race 4 No:12 TIMBERMAN (Nap)
Trainer: Fergal O’Brien - Jockey: Paddy Brennan

On first run for this stable TIMBERMAN put in an earning effort at Lingfield that’s there to be improved upon. His owner enjoyed a big winner at Leopardstown over the weekend and can now see his recruit step up to deny multiple hurdles winner Flic Ou Voyou.

Race 6 No:2 MENGLI KHAN
Trainer: Nicky Henderson - Jockey: Nico de Boinville

The Henderson horses have been worryingly in and out of late, but this smaller field will possibly play to the strengths of former Irish-trained MENGLI KHAN. He was turned over by Black Kalanisi in a similar contest at Lingfield last week but that was a step up from his first outing for his Seven Barrows trainer, and he might have too much-finishing speed for likely pacesetter On The Slopes.

Race 7 No:5 COMMANCHE RED (Each Way)
Trainer: Chris Gordon - Jockey: Tom Cannon

A switch to a race without obstacles could be just the ticket for COMMANCHE RED who seems to have lost his way this season. The chestnut has landed a bumper as well as a valuable novices’ handicap chase at this course but was never going when pulled up here at the Christmas meeting. His trainer has given him a freshening break that can be rewarded with an earning run in what is in effect a handicap chase without the fences.

SOUTHWELL

Race 1 No:3 NICKS NOT WONDER 
(Nap)
Trainer: Jamie Osborne - Jockey: Callum Shepherd

If NICKS NOT WONDER enjoys the Fibresand surface as much as he does Polytrack he will give these rivals short shrift. He was a 28-1 roughie when taking out a Class 5 at Kempton last month, and with the same jockey on board and improvement likely is going to be hard to beat running off his new mark.

Race 2 No:3 LOVE YOUR WORK
Trainer: Stef Keniry - Jockey: Charlie Bennett

LOVE YOUR WORK
came good at this time last year and indicated with a return to form over course and distance last week that an action replay is in the offing. The Helmet gelding chased home the bang-in-form Daafr that should have teed him up nicely to go be better.
