Neil Morrice brings you all of his best bets and tips for Tuesday’s racing coming your way from Warwick, Fakenham, Newcastle and Wolverhampton.
Race 2 No4 BADDESLEY KNIGHT
Trainer: Chris Gordon – Jockey: Tom Cannon
BADDESLEY KNIGHT seemed to blow up on his reappearance at Fontwell but will be straighter for his efforts and hails from a yard that is seriously amongst the winners. The dual bumper and one time chase winner will appreciate the return to fences.
Race 5 No7 GIVEPEACEACHANCE (Nap)
Trainer: Denis Coakley – Jockey: Daryl Jacob
Up 9lb for her cosy Southwell success in which she travelled and jumped like a dream, GIVEPEACEACHANCE looks the best bet on the card as she tries to follow-up on a similarly tight track that should lend itself to her style of racing. With plenty of horses in opposition she should be able to settle with cover, and swoop to conquer in the straight.
Race 7 No2 BLAIRGOWRIE
Trainer: Nicky Henderson- Jockey: Nico de Boinville
Having missed out on an opportunity last week, BLAIRGOWRIE can confirm the promise of her only previous start when third at this course before Christmas. The gelded son of Yeats can open his account at the main expense of newcomer Horizon D’Ainay.
Race 1 No2 TORN AND FRAYED (Nap)
Trainer: Nigel Twiston-Davies – Jockey: Sam Twiston-Davies
Back in novice company after winning a handicap at Hereford and finishing second in another at Kelso, TORN AND FRAYED should be much too good for his four rivals round a sharp course that will play to his strengths. He carries colours that are not averse to finding their way into the winner’s circle at the Norfolk course.
Race 5 No2 DRUMLEE SUNSET
Trainer: Tom George – Jockey: Tom Scudamore
In colours have been in the spotlight in the last few days, DRUMLEE SUNSET will be hard to beat if ready after and enforced absence of more than two years. His record for the stable is two wins and two seconds from only six starts and he’s proved more than once that he goes well fresh.
Race 1 No6 GERONIMO (Nap)
Trainer: Donald McCain Jr – Jockey: Brian Hughes
A wind operation appears to have done the trick for GERONIMO, who stepped up on debut to post a 66-1 near miss on hurdling debut at Catterick. The gelded son of St Leger winner Masked Marvel can take full,advantage of the 7lb he receives from penalised Check My Pulse.
Race 2 No3 NYE BEVAN (Each Way)
Trainer: Nigel Twiston- Davies – Jockey: Jamie Nield
NYE BEVAN raised his game to run Darkest Day to a neck at Plumpton and makes plenty of appeal as his trainer’s only winner at the meeting. Apart from hat-trick seeking Peltwell the vast majority of the opposition are out of form, and he looks a solid each-way entity.
Race 2 No3 STEELRIVER
Trainer: Michael Herrington – Jockey: Tom Eaves
STEELRIVER is effective in small fields in which he is able to use his useful turn of foot off a slow early pace. He lost out in a muddling affair last time but can bounce back on what is a sixteenth consecutive run at Dunstall Park.
Race 5 No2 GOLDEN FLAME (Nap)
Trainer: Mark Johnston – Jockey: Ben Curtis
Golden Horn colt GOLDEN FLAME can play the experience card to good effect in this three-cornered affair in which any one of the trio can win. This is a first run on sand for the selection who picked up a cheque on all but one of his five starts on grass as a two-year-old.
