16:05 Leicester 12 Mar 2021

Every Race Live On Racing TV Handicap Chase

Liars Dice (0.5pt EW 18/1)

Turned out pretty quickly having had a first run back over fences since joining this yard and does so a fair bit better off in the weights when taking his jockeys 7lb claim into account. Last run was not without promise and came after a 93 day lay off so should hopefully be fitter this time around. Handicapper has released his grip a further 6lb and coupled with todays claim that puts him 13lb lower than that last run. First run in cheekpieces today and should be able to go much closer.

13:55 Sandown 12 Mar 2021

Paddy Power Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle

Hit The Rocks (0.5pt EW 20/1)

Lightly raced maiden who has been given a bit of a chance by the handicapper here today. Suffered a pretty heavy defeat on handicap hurdles debut but had previously shown plenty of promise in a couple of maidens over this trip and is worth another try today from this falling mark. Latest run in a jumpers bumper was slightly more encouraging and could well have a hand to play from a big price.

16:15 Sandown 12 Mar 2021

Paddy Power ‘4 Sleeps To Cheltenham’ Handicap Hurdle

Nordano (0.5pt EW 18/1)

Had a phenomenal season last term for this yard culminating in a runaway victory in soft ground at Ascot. Has not been the same horse since and will need to bounce back to somewhere near that for today to get involved. Has had excuses for some of the lesser performances however and has now been eased to more realistic company, over the right trip, in more suitable conditions and having been given a bit of relief from the handicappers grip so another chance is taken.

20:15 Wolverhampton 12 Mar 2021 

Bombardier Apprentice Handicap

Reckless Endeavour (1pt win only 12/1)

Arguably at his best around here in recent months and has placed twice here over CD since the turn of the year . Still fairly treated on old form and has to be given a chance again today. Overpriced selection who will get his head in front again soon. Yard do well here with around a 20% strike which is high for this track and a LSP of around +75.

14:15 Wincanton 11 Mar 2021

MansionBet 5 Days Til Cheltmas Handicap Chase

Forgot To Ask (1pt win only 5/1) Nap

Ultra consistent at this level and comes here with the yard starting to hit form. This looks slightly less competitive on paper than his latest outing and has placed twice this season over CD already. Needs to unlock a little more guts to get the head in front however but has been freshened up before coming here so hopefully the yard have found the key.

14:50 Wincanton 11 Mar 2021

MansionBet Faller Insurance Handicap Hurdle

Gallow Ford (0.5pt EW 33/1 5 places)

A dual points winner for Colin Bowe who has applied himself fairly well in a couple of decent looking novice affairs since joining Katy Price. Enters handicap company for the first time here and will need to take a step forward and that certainly couldn’t be ruled out for this above averagely bred runner who has been given plenty of time to come on for that last run. This looks like a slight drop in grade and is one of two horse entered up for the same connections. (looks the pick on jockey booking)

15:35 Southwell 11 Mar 2021 

Betway Handicap

Moonraker (1pt win only 11/2) Nb

4 wins from 12 runs over CD and strangely not been seen here in over 12 months and has been running elsewhere. Returns here following a 101 day lay off and a drop through the weights that puts him 15lb below that last CD win. Theodore Ladd takes off an extra 3lb and this one is too good to leave alone even if the yard are not quite firing at present.

16:40 Southwell 11 Mar 2021 

Bombardier British Hopped Amber Beer Handicap

Makambe (1pt win only 9/1) Iwac

Has the worst possible draw here today but comes here very well treated and put in a big run over CD just a couple of runs back. Will need some luck in running but cannot be ignored returning to Fibresand in the headgear that saw him come home victorious here a year ago from an 8lb higher mark.

16:15 Catterick 10 Mar 2021

Cheltenham Festival On Racing Tv Handicap Hurdle

Skipness (1pt win only 16/1) Iwac

Showed some signs of ability in his last couple of races and could well have plenty more to offer going in handicap company for the first time and stepping up markedly in trip for this shrewd outfit. Gets some much needed better ground here too which breeding suggests is a must for this horse so that too could bring about significant improvement. Opening mark is no gimme but smartly enough bred to get involve in the right conditions.

13:00 Fontwell 10 Mar 2021 

MansionBet 6 Days ‘Til Cheltmas Handicap Chase

Cagliostro (1pt win only 12/1) Nb

Made a pleasing return to action following a switch of trainers and an 11 month lay off. Will be more than entitled to come on for that run given his previous and should go well again from what now looks to be a very fair mark. Gets possibly more suitable conditions today than the last run and should be able to build on that effort today.

14:00 Fontwell 10 Mar 2021 

MansionBet Bet 10 Get 20 Handicap Chase

Realm Keeper (1pt win only 17/2) Nap

Hasn’t quite got home in his last 4 starts over the longer trip of 3 miles so its interesting to see him dropped in trip today. Most of his best performances in France came at around this trip and on much better ground than what he has been running on recently. Gets that ground today so is well worth another try with the yard going well.

12:50 Lingfield 06 Mar 2021 

Heed Your Hunch At Betway Handicap

King Robert 1pt win only 6/1

Has placed twice from 3 runs over CD including a respectable 3rd here in Jan from 1lb higher. Its been a long time since he’s managed to get his head in front but has plummeted down the weights as a result of that and he wouldn’t need to find much more here to get back to winning ways. Now 27lb below his last winning mark.

15:15 Kelso 06 Mar 2021

bet365 Morebattle Hurdle

Solo 1pt win only 13/2 (NB)

Made a very impressive yard debut this time last year when landing the Grade 2 Adonis at Kempton. Not been in quite the same form since but that is a level of form that probably stands head and shoulders above most of the rest on offer. Been given a short break to freshen up and has gone well fresh in the past. Despite the recent below par performances he remains with plenty of potential from this mark and taking a dip in class today

13:45 Doncaster 06 Mar 2021 

Virgin Bet Handicap Hurdle

En Meme Temps 1pt win only 10/1 (NNB)

Taking a marked drop in class here and returns to the scene of his best run this term which came over this CD. Conditions are finally starting to turn in the favour of this Phillip Kirby runner and he’s lurking on a very handy mark too.

16:05 Doncaster 06 Mar 2021 

Virgin Bet Free Bets For Winners Handicap Hurdle

Getareason (1pt win only 14/1)

Top class Hurdler for Willie Mullins who failed to impress sent over the bigger obstacles for Paul Nicholls following a change of yard. Has since changed hands again and now runs out of the Rebecca Menzies yard. Has put in a couple of fair efforts in NHF races on the all weather which offers a little encouragement now sent back over hurdles.

12:40 Newbury 06 Mar 2021

BetVictor Seniors’ Handicap Hurdle

Highway One O One (0.5pt EW 25/1)

A bit of a leap of faith is being taken on this one following a 132 day lay off and a poor performance when returned to hurdles last time out. Known to go well fresh however and eased another couple of pounds doesn’t look out of it here now finally getting conditions to suit. Massively overpriced if able to bounce back.

13:50 Newbury 06 Mar 2021

BetVictor Greatwood Gold Cup Handicap Chase

Grand Sancy 1pt win only 11/2 (NAP)

Paul Nicholls record in this race is very hard to ignore having won 9 of the last 13 runnings. The selection is one of two he sends out today with the other being Capeland 33/1. Grand Sancy fits the bill for the sort he usually wins this but comes here needing to bounce back from a poor run in a race that was not run to suit. Has been freshened up for this handicap debut and gets ideal conditions too.

16:40 Doncaster 06 Mar 2021 

Virgin Bet Novices’ Hurdle

Norvics Reflection (0.5pt EW 66/1)

Fairly well bred runner for a stable that does pretty well here and sends just the one today. Takes a step up in trip for hurdles debut and a much improved run could not be easily ruled out at massive odds.

West Lake 1pt win only 13/2 (210F)

Only had 3 runs under rules and has not performed to any sort of level. Still remains of interest however now that he is in the hands of the shrewd operating G L Moore yard who do so well here. He has a record of 6 wins and 6 placed from 27 for these connections and is worth a small nibble for this local yard.

Let Me Entertain You 1pt win only 11/1 (410F)

On best form is closely matched to a couple of the market principals here and is worth a try stepping up in trip for his handicap debut from what looks a fair opening mark. Drying ground a slight worry but hopefully its tacky enough to make this a real test.

Shortcross Storm 1pt win only 6/1 (220H)

Lightly raced maiden who makes yard debut for a pretty shrewd operator in Chris Honour. Steps up in trip which looks likely to suit and has a very valuable 3lb claim in what looks a pretty ordinary race. Brian Carver has a 30% strike for the yard which gives further encouragement.

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.

16:10 Lingfield 24 Jan 2021 

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.
