Join Racing TV Now Maiden Hurdle

Known (1pt win only 13/2)

Previously with Nicky Henderson and showed a fair level of promise for that yard over hurdles. Has since joined Jonjo O Neill and drops back into maiden company following the switch of yards and a freshen up. Yard do well with their runners here and are sending just this one so worth a try.

15:35 Warwick 30 Mar 2021

Bet At racingtv.com Handicap Chase

Fanzio (1pt win only 12/1)

Decent chaser who has been trying his hand in NHF races of late, reverts back to the bigger obstacles now having been freshened up and put right for a race of this magnitude. On a fair mark judged on best form and gets ideal conditions too, overpriced selection

16:00 Fakenham 30 Mar 2021 

Aldiss Furnishing Stores Handicap Hurdle

Sopat (1pt win only 8/1)

Has a couple of wins to his name at the track already from just 3 runs and takes a drop in class returning here stepped up in trip. Ground should be no issue and the yard do pretty well with the few runners that they send here. They send just the one and she looks a little overpriced.

15:20 Ascot 28 Mar 2021 

Berkshire Community Foundation Handicap Chase

Mystical Clouds (1pt win only 16/1)

Put in a very promising run on yard debut but has come up short twice since. Has been given a break by the new yard and could well have found some improvement over that period. Back on his last winning mark and not one to write off just yet. Yard in good form too.

15:55 Ascot 28 Mar 2021 

Berkshire Women’s Aid Veterans’ Handicap Chase

Royal Vacation (1pt win only 10/1) Iwac

Has plenty to prove following a very tame effort on his reappearance run last time out. Gets more preferred conditions here and sits on a mark that is very hard to ignore. Could well fare better for the move into veteran races and one i’m willing to take the chance on.

15:30 Carlisle 28 Mar 2021

Northern Lights Two Mile Chase Series Final Handicap Chase

Tonto’s Spirit (1pt win only 15/2) Nb

Had lost his way a little but comes here having put in improved runs on his last 2 outings. Connor Farrell takes the ride and looks to be the pick of at least 3 he could of had the leg up on today. Yard going well and this one is another who sits on a mark that is too hard to ignore with conditions looking to suit too.

13:20 Doncaster 28 Mar 2021 

32Red.com Handicap

King Of Tonga (0.5pt EW 25/1 5 PLACES)

Too soon to be written off despite ending last season leaving connections scratching their heads. Had previously run with credit in a couple of much better races and is well worth a try here on reappearance following a wind op from this reduced mark.

16:50 Doncaster 28 Mar 2021 

32Red Handicap

Alben Spirit (1pt win only 9/1) Nap

Richard Fahey is no stranger to a winner on this card and has been known to ready a few specifically for this meeting. Gets ideal trip and conditions on return and is still fairly lightly raced so well worth a punt at these odds with improvement likely.

15:10 Doncaster 27 Mar 2021 

Unibet Lincoln

Ouzo (0.5pt EW 25/1) 6 places PP IWAC

Had shaped very well in a couple of strong looking races before finally getting back to winning ways in a big field handicap at York when last seen. Has gone well fresh in the past so reassurance can be taken that he will come here ready to roll first time. Versatile with regards to conditions and trip is ideal, strong draw based on recent renewals and plenty to like from this overpriced selection.

14:35 Doncaster 27 Mar 2021 

Unibet Spring Mile Handicap

Mascat (1pt win only 11/1) Nb

Ended last term with a couple of solid performances and comes here making seasonal debut having been gelded and could have more to offer. Has a couple of decent form line runs under his belt from last term and possibly the pick of all the 2 year old form on offer. This trip looks to be where he is most comfortable and he will certainly be staying on late to go close given the pace in the race. Still unexposed over this trip which could have him well treated too.

16:25 Wolverhampton 27 Mar 2021 

Play Ladbrokes 5-A-Side On Football Handicap

Arthurs Angel (1pt win only 5/1) Nap

One from the tracker who is worth another try following a fine run in third at Lingfield last time out. That race has worked out very well since and this one has been given a little time to come on for that.

16:00 Carlisle 21 Mar 2021

Join RacingTV Now Handicap Hurdle

Click And Collect (1pt win only 6/1) Nb

Lightly raced 9 year old who has been somewhat disappointing since joining the yard from Clare Ellam. Showed small signs of improvement last time out however which offers some encouragement in this weak looking race. Has plummeted down the weights and now sits on a very inviting mark of just 87 in comparison to this time last year when he would have gone from 106. Risks attached but worth a try here today.

14:35 Chepstow 21 Mar 2021 

Biowave Smarter Pain Blocking Technology Handicap Chase

Marble Moon (1pt win only 7/1) Nap

Won 3 times over the 3 mile trip last term but finished last of 9 on returning to action following 3 months off earlier this month. Was not a million miles away on that return run and was not given a hard time either. A better run can be expected today from what looks a very lenient mark. Gets much needed better ground today and is now effectively 19lb lower than that last win at Ludlow when we take into consideration Isabel Williams 5lb claim.

16:45 Chepstow 21 Mar 2021 

Biowave Blocks Pain At The Source Handicap Chase

Festival Dawn (1pt win only 12/1) Iwac

Very lightly raced and still unexposed over these bigger obstacles. Ran to a fair level over hurdles and if able to translate that here back at the scene of possibly her best ever run should go close from this mark. Had made a pleasing chase debut but flopped next time out. Excuses can be made for that run however having been hampered early on and never getting into a rhythm thereafter and we should hopefully see a better run today. Conditions to suit today and overpriced.

Follow MansionBet This Cheltmas Handicap Hurdle

Miss Jeanne Moon (1pt win only 14/1) Nap

Ran no sort of race whatsoever last time out and i can only imagine the yard want to draw a line through that. Her previous 2 runs back in November however offer plenty more promise when she beat twice subsequent winner Gustavian before putting in a big effort less that 4 lengths off the now 147 rated Molly Olly’s Wishes. Yard are going well and top claimer M Wonnacott takes over in the saddle bringing with her a very valuable 5lb claim. Very hopeful that this mare can bounce back today.

15:42 Warwick 14 Mar 2021

MansionBet Bet 10 Get 20 Handicap Chase

One Of Us (1pt win only 8/1) Nb

Has been very indifferent over the past year or so but excuses can be made for most of those performances. Put in a decent effort back in 4th at Kelso in the Borders National and that offers some encouragement from todays mark with him finally getting conditions to suit, something which cannot be said for many of these. Has been freshened up before this and again we are hopeful of an improved run today.

16:15 Warwick 14 Mar 2021

MansionBet Have Yourself A MerryCheltmas Handicap Hurdle

Geordie Des Champs (0.5pt EW 28/1 4 Places SkyBet)

Leading connections have had to be very patient with this one time talented hurdler. Made an underwhelming return to action following 27 months off but that was possibly to be expected when sent out in very testing conditions. Will enjoy todays surface a lot more and if the faith J P McManus has in this one is of any value could well outrun these odds here.

16:50 Warwick 14 Mar 2021

Pony Racing Authority Graduates Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle

Bebraveforglory (1pt win only 8/1) Iwac

Made a fair return to action following a wind operation in behind one from the Dan Skelton yard. Drops in trip today which should suit and will handle the slightly quicker ground better too. Not one to over enthuse about but should run his race and worth a try at the odds.

MansionBet Faller Insurance Handicap Hurdle

Jabulani (1pt win only 13/2) Nap

A fair hurdler for Nigel Twiston Davies who now goes out of the Sam Thomas yard. Got a little stuck in the mud last time having a first spin back over the smaller obstacles at Wincanton. Eased in grade and also in the weights here today and been given a little time to freshen up which should all play in his favour today. Conditions look more suitable as does the trip and there’s plenty to like about this one with the yard going well. K Brogan takes off an extra 5lb making this one a well handicapped runner on best form.

14:25 Sandown 13 Mar 2021

Paddy Power Imperial Cup Handicap Hurdle

Mack The Man (1pt win only 12/1) Iwac

Listed CD handicap winner 15 months ago in similar conditions who was looking likely to follow that up when brought down still going well in the Betfair Hurdle last year. Has been a little indifferent this term tried over fences and his most recent run back over hurdles will be one the yard will want to draw a line through. That said he gets perfect conditions today and has been eased a little in the weights too. This race also looks more suitable and a more realistic level so better can be expected in the hands of J Bowen who has a 37% strike for the yard in the last 12 months.

16:10 Sandown 13 Mar 2021

‘From The Horse’s Mouth’ Podcast Handicap Chase

Quick Wave (0.5pt EW 33/1) Outsider

We are struggling to understand the price of this Venetia Williams runner, yes she put in a stinker last time out but previous to that she was seen demolishing a very similar field. She has gone up 7lb for that but not sure that was the reason that she didn’t perform next time out. Could still have more to offer from this mark with her yard going very well at present.

16:45 Sandown 13 Mar 2021

Paddy Power ‘3 Sleeps To Cheltenham’ Handicap Chase

The Russian Doyen (1pt win only 17/2) Nb

Has not completed a race over fences since finishing 4th at the 2019 Cheltenham Festival which is slightly worrying but if able to put in a clear round of jumping should be very competitive in this company today from this reduced mark. Has been pitched in against much better company than this and this race could give him the time that he needs to get into a better rhythm. Unlike many of his rivals today he will relish the drying conditions too.

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.

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.

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.
