TQ Weekend Wrap – Free Horse Racing Tips and Trends: 16th Nov 2019

 

  • CHELTENHAM: BetVictor Gold Cup Day……….
  • LINGFIELD: Two LIVE ITV Races On The AW………
  • CHELTENHAM SUNDAY: November Meeting Concludes…………
  • TRAINERS-QUOTES: Inside Info Continues To Reward Members…….

Hi,

One of the weekend highlights for jump racing fans this Saturday and Sunday as the Cheltenham November Meeting takes centre stage – let’s just hope it survives the weather as they’ve already had to call off day one (Friday)!

Fingers crossed there are no issues!

The BetVictor Gold Cup is the main event on Saturday and we take a look at this race in more detail below. Last year we saw our very own Gary Moore land the big race with Baron Alco – he’ll be trying to follow-up with Dell Oro. Did you know, ALL of the last 17 winners of the BetVictor Gold Cup had run at Cheltenham before, while 16 of the last 17 were won by a UK-based trainer. We’ve got the race down to two – see which ones below!

We’ve also got our quick-fire tips for the other Saturday Cheltenham races – oh, and we’ve also taken a look at the best of the action from their Sunday card too, with a detailed look at the Greatwood Hurdle.

Back to Saturday and Lingfield Park (AW) is the supporting LIVE ITV fixture – we’ve two races to take in there live too and with Frankie heading to the Surrey venue then that should be a big crowd draw.

So, as always, we’ve got it all covered with free tips and all the key trends for the LIVE ITV races.

Enjoy!

Have a Great Weekend

 

==========================================================

Moore And Sherwood Delight at Kempton…………….It was a top start to the week for the Gary Moore and Oliver Sherwood yards as they both fired in great winners at Kempton on Monday. Gary Moore sent out 25/1 shot DAREBIN to lead from the front under a top ride from son Jamie Moore. Gary told members he though the horse had a nice each-way chance.

“Darebin – Very tricky race and lots of horses with a chance, but slight bit of help from the handicapper after a few below-par runs – down 5lbs from first run this season. The blinkers are back on too so could have a reasonable e/w chance at a nice price.”

Prior to that success the Oliver Sherwood camp also got in on the act after their SAMMY BILL (1st 12/1) bolted-up by 11 lengths in a Novices Handicap Chase. This 6 year-old showed a great turn of foot turning for home and stayed on powerfully to win as he liked. He’s another owned by Mr Grand National – Trevor Hemmings – so you never know where this one might end up. Yes, he’s got a long way to go to match the heights of their National winner – Many Clouds – but after that performance on Monday he’s certainly going in the right direction.

“Sammy Bill – He has always worked seriously well at home, but he was too keen on a racecourse to get home. He is an enigma, I’m still not sure of what trip he wants or the best way to ride him. Sammy is an enormous horse with an equally huge stride, he’s a free going type and I’m not sure whether to let him bowl along and use that stride or hold him up with a view to finishing strongly…..He has schooled well at home, he’s neat on his feet yet he still has plenty of scope. Overall feel we’ve got an e/w chance here.

 

TQ Horse To Note………………………………..The Robin Dickin-trained MR PALMTREE ran a respectable second at Hereford on Tuesday and looks like he’s coming to the boil. The first two -pulled 6 lengths clear of the third that day so the form looks solid enough, while being backed into 6/1 (from 10/1) was another good sign of stable confidence. Jockey Tabitha Worsley also seems to get on well with the horse and we are sure the Dickin camp will find a similar race in the coming weeks which should see him go close again.

 

USE THE TQ INFO TO BACK OR LAY - Also, a lot of our members use the TRAINERS-QUOTES info to lay horses as well as back them – there are plenty of angles these days with the betting exchanges!! Or even back other horses in certain races with the trainers also taking about other horses in races they’ve heard good words about!

The last winner aged in double-figures was in 1975
Paul Nicholls has saddled 10 placed horses (two winners, Al Ferof & Caid Du Berlais) from his last 37 runners
Baron Alco (8/1) won the race in 2018
The average winning SP in the last 17 years is 10/1

TQ VERDICT: We saw the Gary Moore yard win the race 12 months ago with Baron Alco and they will be trying to add to that success with Dell Oro. However, it’s a prize that’s been dominated by the Jonjo O’Neill, Nigel Twiston-Davies, Paul Nicholls and Pipe yard in recent years – between them, they’ve won 11 of the last 17 renewals! O’Neill doesn’t have runner, but Pipe has Warthog & Eamon An Cnoic, who was 5th in this race last year, Nicholls has Magic Saint & Brelan D’As, while Twiston-Davies saddles his 2017 winner, Splash Of Ginge and COUNT MERIBEL (e/w). And it’s the last-named that catches the eye. This 7 year-old returned to the track last month with a fair second to the useful Lostintranslation up at Carlisle, plus was a Novice Chase winner at this meeting last season. Looking at his form, he seems to act on any ground and also stays a bit further than this 2m4f, which will help in conditions. He also ticks most of the main trends, while this 7 year-old also seems to have a good record at this time of the year – 4 of his 5 career wins have been in November – the other came in October! Of the rest, Festival winner – Siruh Du Lac – was a gutsy winner of the Brown Advisory & Merriebelle Stable Plate Handicap Chase back in March and there is a chance we’ve not got to the bottom of him yet, having won 6 of his 8 chase starts. Lizzie Kelly is back to ride and can claim 3lbs too, but he is 9lbs higher than last time out. Spiritofthegames (3rd) and Eamon An Cnoic (4th) also ran well at that same Festival race last March and cases can certainly be made for them too. Slate House has been popular in the betting all week for the Colin Tizzard yard. He’s a prove CD winner after winning well here last month on heavy ground so conditions are fine, but he is up a big-looking 12lbs for that. It would be no shock to see him run well, but he’s got a bit to prove still and the value looks to have gone anyway. GUITAR PETE was a solid third in the race last year and returned a few weeks ago to win well at Wetherby. He beat Happy Diva, who also runs here, but 3 ½ lengths, so should be able to confirm that form on just 2lbs worse terms. With 13 top three finishes from his 23 runs over fences then he’s a consistent sort that is sure to run his race again, despite being rated 4lbs higher than 12 months ago in this race.  Nicholls’ Brelan D’As unseated in the race Saint Calvados (now a non-runner) won here recently, so has to bounce back, but with only 10-5 in weight can’t be ruled out with Barry Geragthy riding too. However, it’s the other Nicholls runner – MAGIC SAINT (e/w) that might be worth chancing too. This 5 year-old might lack a bit of experience but Nicholls won this race with a horse the same age in 2014. He’s also had a wind op since last season and has won in heavy ground in France. The trip is a slight unknown, but he has won over 2m2f and run 2nd over 2m5f to suggest it’s within range. He’s also a horse that’s gone well off a break and, as mentioned, the Nicholls camp love to target this race so is sure to be tuned-up and ready to go.

LINGFIELD: Two LIVE ITV Races From The Surrey Venue…….


Lingfield Horse Racing Trends (ATR/ITV)

2.45 – Betway Churchill Stakes (Listed Race) (All-Weather Fast Track Qualifier) Cl1 (3yo+) 1m2f ITV

11/13 – Returned 15/2 or shorter in the betting
11/13 – Rated between 102 and 112
10/13 – Ran in the last 6 weeks
10/13 – Had won over at least 1m2f before
9/13 – Won between 1-4 times before
9/13 – Favourites placed in the top two
8/13 – Aged 3 or 4 years-old
8/13 – Placed last time out
8/13 – Drawn in stall 5 or higher
4/13 – Winning favourites
3/13 – Trained by Saeed Bin Suroor
Master The World (10/1) won the race in 2017 and 2018

TQ VERDICT: It’s hard to look beyond the John Gosden-trained LORD NORTH here. This 3 year-old has 12lbs in-hand at the weights based on the official ratings and with Frankie Dettori making the effort to ride him at this time of year is another big plus. Caradoc, Crossed Baton, Kuwait Currency and the CD winner, Pactolus can chase him home. While if you are looking for one at a price then with the Neil King yard having a 36% strike-rate with their runners at the track (5 from 14), then despite having a bit to find at the weights their Petite Jack might go well if you can fine top 3 or 4 placed markets.

 

3.15 – Betway Golden Rose Stakes (Listed Race) (All-Weather Fast Track Qualifier) Cl1 (3yo+) 6f ITV

12/12 – Previous winner over 6f or 7f
11/12 – Didn’t win last time out
11/12 – Returned 8/1 or shorter in the betting
10/12 – Had raced in the last 6 weeks
10/12 – Aged 4 or older
9/12 – Won 5 or more times before
8/12 – Drawn in stall 6 or higher
8/12 – Unplaced last time out
8/12 – Unplaced favourites
4/12 – Ran at Doncaster last time out
3/12 – Winning favourites
Gifted Master (9/2) won the race in 2017
Encrypted won the race in 2018

 

TQ VERDICT: Some familiar names on show here, including the 2017 winner of this race – GIFTED MASTER. This 6 year-old heads here as the second top-rated in the field – with only Judicial, who is yet to win beyond 5 1/2f, ahead of him. However, this Hugo Palmer runner receives a handy 3lbs from that runner and being he’s a proven CD winner as well, then he gets the nod. He returned to the track last time here over 7f with a fine second – he was also fifth in this race last year but that recent outing should have him spot-on for this as the yard look for their third win in this contest in as many years. Of the others, Above The Rest was a solid fourth in this race last year and can go well again, while Corinthia Knight was sixth. However, the danger can come from the Dettori-ridden STAKE ACCLAIM. The pocket Italian has a 36% record riding 4+ year-olds at the course, while it’s interesting the horse is actually having it’s first run at the track. Draw 3 looks ideal and the last time Frankie rode this 7 year-old they finished second in a Group 3 in France (Aug 19).

1/17 – Won by an Irish-trained horse
The average winning SP in the last 17 years is 9/1
6 of the last 10 winners contested the previous season’s Supreme Novices’ or Triumph Hurdle

TQ VERDICT: Another super-tough renewal of the Greatwood hurdle, but at least some nice trends to take into account. With 14 of the last 17 winners aged 4 or 5, then of the 15 runners this is a negative for the likes of Mohaayed, Countister, Harambe, Benny’s Bridge, Dame De Compagnie and Grapevine. 12 of the last 17 winners had also had a recent run (in last 6 weeks), had run at Cheltenham before too, were rated 140+ and also finished in the first two last time out. With those stats taken into account then three stand out – QUEL DESTIN, GUMBALL and MONSIUER LECOQ - all three are respected. Gumball likes to get on with things from the front and should make a bold bid again, but in this ground,  it might be hard to stay there and he only just clung on last time at Ascot – he’s also up 8lbs here. Monsieur Lecoq is a fast-improving hurdler too and will love the ground. He returned with a win at Ffos Las last month in the Welsh Champion Hurdle but is another that is up in the ratings (7lbs higher). I’d also be a tad concerned that one of his only poor runs came here at Cheltenham, when down the field in the County Hurdle last March. So, that leaves QUEL DESTIN. This Paul Nicholls runner won over this CD in heavy ground last month so we know conditions will suit. He also ran well to be 5th in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle here last March and with 6 of the last 10 winners of this race having contested that Festival race, then that’s another good trend in his favour. Of the rest, Harambe, Quoi De Neuf and Humble Hero can have cases made for them, but the Hobbs yard have a fair record in the race too so their ZANZA (e/w) is also worth supporting. Dickie Johnson rides and this 5 year-old caught the eye when winning well at Newbury last time out. He escapes a penalty for that as it came in a conditional jockeys’ race, while with only 8 career runs should have more to come. He’s won on soft ground in the past too and despite not running at Cheltenham yet, he’s won three times at left-handed tracks so that’s a good sign.
