Heed Your Hunch At Betway Handicap

Music Major (1pt win only 10/1) Nb

Hard to catch right but is sitting on a very handy mark should he turn up today. Already a 3 times CD winner and often gets his best work in around this time of year. Has a decent draw and goes in good hands so no excuses.

13:10 Lingfield 24 Jan 2021 

Heed Your Hunch At Betway Handicap

Dawn Treader (1pt win only 12/1) Nnb

Having a first run for this new yard since making the switch from Sophie Leech. Not a straightforward selection but has put in two pretty fair performances at this track in the last 12 months and that encourages us to take a chance from this falling mark and going in the hands of a very talented 5lb claimer. Drawn out wide so will need a bit of luck but weighted to go close.

Play 4 To Win At Betway Handicap

Ice Age (1pt win only 16/1) Nap

Not been seen in the winners enclosure for over 2 years but that last win came in C2 company from a mark of 103. Has since changed hands and moved yards and showed enough last time out following wind op and going over an inadequate trip that some of that ability is retained. Drops back to the more suitable 6f trip here over which 6 of the 8 career wins have come and effectively goes from a mark of 72 today with the 5lb claim making this run some 31lb below that last winning mark.

14:40 Lingfield 24 Jan 2021 

Bombardier ‘March To Your Own Drum’ Handicap

Maaward (0.5pt EW 40/1 4 places) Outsider

A very useful performer a couple of years back when in the hands of Richard Hannon but has failed to live up to the expectation of the promise shown as a novice. Pretty disappointing in all 3 runs for new yard since returning from a 507 day lay off and its hard to know how much if any potential remains. Drops markedly in class here having been eased a further 5lb by the handicapper, takes a step back in trip which should also suit and if able to settle better today could spring a surprise. Its an outsider bet with an outsiders chance so not one to go in on too deeply.

Katheefa 1pt win only 9/2 (335South)

4 times CD winner who is very well treated on best form. Some 11lb below last CD win from last Feb and that win came in a C3 event. All 4 of his course wins have come when the track is riding Standard which he gets today so lets put a line under that last run when it was slower than standard and this one holds excellent chances today.

Summeronsevenhills 1pt win only 8/1 (235South)

Dropping in grade from a falling mark on what will be only a second run for this lightly raced Richard Hughes runner on todays surface. Bred to appreciate the fibresand and improvement should be on the cards following a pleasing pipe opener 8 days ago. Yard have a 30% strike here and a pretty impressive +34 LSP from 61 runners. Cheekpieces on for the first time and could get a race run to suit here.

Bond Angel 1pt win only 12/1 (405South)

Changed yards 12 months ago and has only been seen twice since the switch. Put in his most pleasing effort for some time last time out when 2nd over CD in behind the reopposing Al Suil Eile. This 7 times course winner will be entitled to have come on for that run when just failing to last out having almost made all. Cheekpieces applied and fingers are crossed that can eek out a little more today. Draw a slight worry.

Mormon 1pt win only 9/1 (350Punch)

Lightly raced runner from top connections who takes a dip in class coming here. Has the benefit of a valuable 7lb claim and has possibly the pick of the form on offer today. Capable of better than last run if able to produce the form of his November run.

Nap: Huraiz 1pt win only 13/2 (310Ling)

Dropping in class today and eased a little in the weights too. Yard bang in form at present and this is their sole runner on the card. More to come from this pretty lightly raced Mark Johnston runner

Nb: Love Destiny 1pt win only 8/1 (820Kemp)

Looks dangerously well weighted for the Mark Johnston yard who as previously mentioned are bang in form with a 35% strike in the last 14 days. They send just the one runner for tonight’s card and Richard Kingscote takes the ride.

Nnb: Lord Rapscallion 1pt win only 8/1 (125Ling)

Another from an in form yard who is also dropping in grade today. Drops back to handicap company from what looks to be a fair mark. Cieron Fallon takes the ride on what would appear to be the yards second string with Jason Hart taking the other ride. This will be Cierons first ride for the yard and he will be looking to land a blow.

IWAC: Hugo’s Reflection 1pt win only 7/1 (350Mar)

Daryl Jacobs only ride on the card and it comes in the final race of the day. Probably would have wanted slightly better ground than this but comes here with the yard in good form and has won over CD before. Daryl is riding with a lot of confidence at the moment and had a 5 timer last Saturday taking him to a 42% strike in the last 14 days.

Dusky Lark (1pt win only 10/1) Nap

A distant 2nd on return from a 621 day lay off and worth another try with that run under the belt. Finished between a couple of decent sorts that day and comes here getting ideal conditions and with the yard going well. Yard also saddle the short priced favourite who is going the right way but has an extra 9lb to contend with today.

14:50 Hereford 11 Jan 2021 

foxtrotracing.com Great Value Red Caps Syndicate Handicap Hurdle

Endlessly (1pt win only 13/2) Nb

Mark is slowly falling to a more realistic one following a few lack lustre performances in handicap company. Not one to write off just yet with Aiden Coleman back in the saddle. He tackles a big drop in class here today and drops back in trip too. Has conditions to suit and should fare better now.

15:20 Hereford 11 Jan 2021

To Be Sure (0.5pt EW 16/1 5 places) Iwac

Runner up on his only points start and joined the yard and connections with a 22K price tag. Not been devoid of promise despite how form figures read at a glance and just the sort this yard do well with once sent handicapping. 5 places available and worth a nibble from this shrewd yard, who will be desperate to give these connections a winner.

15:50 Hereford 11 Jan 2021 

Foxtrot Racing Thanks Their Syndicate Members Mares’ Standard Open NH Flat Race

Quietlyflowsthedon (1pt win only 12/1)

Well bred and related to point/bumper winners. Yard does very well here at the local track and they too will be desperate to give these connections a winner here. Venetia Williams has the yard in decent form and certainly knows how to get one ready at the first time of asking. Market support would be significant.

MansionBet Watch And Bet Conditional Jockeys’ Training Series Handicap Hurdle

Tintern Theatre (0.5pt EW 22/1 5 places SkyBet) Outsider

Reverts back to hurdles following a poor spell over fences returning from a long lay off. Shaped well enough for a long way on latest effort and is well worth another try over these smaller obstacles from this reduced mark. 18lb below last winning hurdles mark albeit a while back but if able to bounce back for the switch is very well handicapped. Jack Savage is 3 wins from 9 for the yard in the last 12 months which also offers a little encouragement.

14:10 Exeter 10 Jan 2021

MansionBet’s Best Odds Guaranteed Handicap Hurdle

Stormy Flight (1pt win only 7/1) Iwac

Given too much to do last time out and finished very strongly, has gone up a few pounds for that run but the way he finished off the race suggested that there was a little juice left in the tank. Was 3rd in a race this time last year at Taunton that has worked out particularly well and that form line offers plenty of hope that this one can take on this well fancied favourite.

14:40 Exeter 10 Jan 2021

MansionBet App Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase

Flinck (1pt win only 5/1) Nb

Disappointed hugely on chase debut last time out but not one to give up on. Will no doubt have improved and come on for that run as many of this yards runners do. Possibly has the pick of hurdles form on show and based on that here if able to put that last run behind should go close. The short priced favourite has been impressive to date but has gone up another 8lb for latest win making him vulnerable today.

15:10 Exeter 10 Jan 2021

MansionBet Bet 10 Get 20 Handicap Chase

Ballycross (1pt win only 14/1) Outsider

Off the track 427 days and changed yards and will now have a first run for Nicky Henderson. Interesting jockey booking in 2Lt Billy Aprahamain who has only ever ridden a handful of runners under rules. One of those rides was a winning one for this yard. On previous chase form is pretty well handicapped and goes 5lb below last winning mark. Just remains to be seen as to what if anything the switch to the Seven Barrows yard has done for this ones chances.

15:40 Exeter 10 Jan 2021

MansionBet Live Casino Cashback Handicap Hurdle

Et Apres Thou (1pt win only 11/2) Nap

A solid return to action when runner up at Wincanton last time out. Gone up just 1lb for that run and the race has produced winners since. Richard Johnson takes over in the saddle and he has a great record for these connections with9 wins and 5 placed from 30 for a 30% strike and a LSP of +52. More to come having been given time to improve and goes in first time cheek pieces which could eek out a little more.

Watch Racing For Free At Coral Handicap Chase

Cepage (1pt win only 4/1)

Worth another try dropping in grade here. By far the class act in the race and its a race that trainer Venetia Williams has won on 5 of the last 8 runnings. Disappointing on return which is a slight worry as he often goes well fresh, but we can forgive that as with the year we have had preparations may well not have gone as planned. If able to find the form of his Cheltenham run from this time last year should be bang there today.

12:50 Chepstow 09 Jan 2021 

Coral ‘Fail To Finish’ Free Bets Handicap Hurdle

Ask Dillon (1pt win only 5/1)

Third in this race last year and returns for another try effectively 1lb lower in the weights when taking into consideration Liam Harrison’s 7lb claim. Progressive looking sort who has gone well on his last two outings in similar staying races. Yard are going well and this one comes here in great heart and today’s heavy ground may just eek out a little extra.

13:58 Chepstow 09 Jan 2021 

Coral Supporting Prostate Cancer Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase

Highland Hunter (1pt win only 5/1)

Mud loving stayer who went straight in the tracker following an eyecatching run on reappearance. Put in another fine effort next time out and would have finished much closer had he not been badly hampered. Stayed on dourly after that and is worth a try on chasing debut from this very fair mark. Paul Nicholls has a 43% strike with his runners here in the last 12 months and this points winner looks the sort to be even better now tackling the bigger obstacles.

15:10 Chepstow 09 Jan 2021 

Coral Welsh Grand National Handicap Chase

Dominateur (0.5pt Ew 5places 16/1)

2 wins and 2 placed efforts from 4 runs at this course. Ran well enough on reappearance on ground that was way too quick for this mud lover. Will stay this marathon trip and looks well enough treated to be involved here today. Still improving and far less exposed than many of his rivals. Gavin Sheehan back on board and his record for the yard is an encouraging one with 6 wins and 5 placed from 20 rides for a 30% strike.

Wells Next The Sea Novices’ Handicap Chase

Macksville (1pt win only 20/1) Outsider

Fair hurdler who looked in need of the run last time out returning from 10 months off the track. Reverts to the bigger obstacles here for the first time from what looks a pretty fair mark. Hails from a yard that does much better with their chasers than other spheres so better can possibly be expected too. Connections are 4 wins and 1 placed from 7 when sending a runner here so no forlorn hope as the market would suggest.

13:25 Fakenham 04 Jan 2021 

Fakenham Racecourse Handicap Hurdle

Shantung (1pt win only 7/2) Nb

Put in two good efforts this term following wind surgery in races that have worked out since putting this current mark very much thereabouts. Dropped in trip at Southwell last time out which halted the progression a little and steps straight back up here with conditions in favour. Yard have a great record here with just over 50 winners and a strike in the realms of 25% and an LSP of +55. Bryony Frost hangs on to the ride and she is 7 wins and 8 placed from 30 for the yard too.

13:55 Fakenham 04 Jan 2021 

Racing Partnership Mares’ Handicap Chase

Tippingituptonancy (1pt win only 10/1) Iwac

Not really given a hard time on chase debut running for the first time in 269 days and had to give weight to some pretty good opposition that day. Form of that race is well above average and despite finishing a distant 4th of 7 has to be taken more seriously here in this company. Steps up slightly in trip on handicap debut over fences but there should be plenty more to come from this pretty pricey points recruit with that run under his belt.

14:55 Fakenham 04 Jan 2021 

Visit attheraces.com Handicap Chase

Orchard Thieves (1pt win only 6/1) Nap

Still holds bags of potential in this sphere despite finishing tailed of on his first two starts over fences. Bred for these marathon trips and will have no problem with the sticky conditions. Eased 5lb from last run and gets a further 5 taken off for the talented Fergus Gillard’s claim which makes him very dangerous here. Fergus has a 21% strike riding for the yard who also do well here with a 42% strike in the last 5 years. They are in great form too with 3 winners from their last 8 runners.
