  • SATURDAY LIVE RACING: Weather Takes It’s Toll………
  • LEOPARDSTOWN: Irish Champion Hurdle Trends and Tips…..
  • TQ UPDATE: In-Form Oliver Hits Back………….


So, parts of the country have had the snow that’s been promised all week, so it looks like being a bleak weekend in terms of the jumps racing with Wetherby, Musselburgh and Sandown all looking doubtful to race.  In case they’ve got it wrong then we’ve still listed the main trends for the proposed live races – you never know!!

If not, then Lingfield and Kempton, plus an extra meeting at Chelmsford, will fly the flag on the AW and to be fair they’ve actually got decent cards, especially Lingfield as it’s their Winter Derby Trial day.

Plus, over in Ireland there’s plenty to enjoy as we’ve the two-day Dublin Racing Festival to take in from Leopardstown. Many big names on show as they take in another prep race before Cheltenham – the Irish Champion Hurdle (trends below) is a race trainer Willie Mullins will be looking to win for a seventh time, while Gordon Elliott will be eyeing his first success in the race – he’s got his prolific-winning mare Apple’s Jade entered. Oh, add in last year’s winner Supasundae, plus the 2017 hero Petit Mouchoir then even though we’ve a small field it’s a fascinating renewal.  

So, still a fair amount to look forward too and, as always, we’ll be hoping to find plenty more winners for you with free tips and all key trends for the LIVE races. Enjoy!

Have a Great Weekend!!


This Week At Trainers-Quotes: In-form Henry Oliver Let’s Winners Do The Talking………..

It was all kicking off last weekend with the BHA slapping a £140 fine on our very own Henry Oliver for waving his arms at one of his runners at the start in a bid to get the horse to begin its race. Crazy stuff, and even though Henry’s not going to appeal the decision he had several big names – like Alan King, AP McCoy and Nicky Henderson leap to his defence. In Henry’s words, the cash penalty isn’t going to make much difference to his life, but it just seems ludicrous considering on the flat some horses are pushed into the stalls against their free-will so they can start the race.

Anyway, the BHA seem to have come off worse and although rules are rules, surely it would have been better to just have a quiet word and move on from there.

Oh well, Henry had the last laugh this week anyway with three winners since last Saturday – The Crazed Moon (11/4), Hijran (11/2) and Another Theatre (15/8)

Here’s just a sample of recent winners…………………

“Global Goddess – Has been a bit frustrating with no wins from 9 now but has been placed in the top three four times. Tried a longer trip last time but didn’t see it out so the drop back to 7f a plus and we are also 5lbs lower here with the drop in the ratings and William’s claim. Draw 6 fine and has run well here before. Another that needs things to fall right but dropping mark must give us a chance. Each-way.”

2nd 16/1 Gay Kelleway

“Sea Shack – Showed improve form last run when in cheekpieces and the tongue tie, plus also making the running. He has come out of that race in good form too and even though these apprentice races are hard to predict he certainly has the ability to be thereabouts in a race like this.”

2nd 12/1 Julia Feilden

“Clearance – Quite a promising run over hurdles last time at Newbury. Hopefully that gave him a bit of an interest which should see him run well today back on the flat. Dropped a pound since last run on the level and the step up to 1m6f will be fine. Each-way. “

1st 10/3 Gary Moore

“Limerick Lord – Has shown his best form at Southwell but he seems to have got a bit sick of the kick-back there lately. Therefore, we think a change of scenery here at Wolves will be best for him and he has run a couple of times here in the past – finishing 3rd and 4th with top-weight in a Class 6. We think he has a great e/w chance here at a good price.”

1st 16/1 Julia Feilden

“Theligny – Second run back after a wind op so we are looking for a better run. 2lbs lower this time too and back down to a mark that he ran well at last season. Acts on most ground and despite being first run at Newcastle no reason why it won’t suit. Small bit to answer over this trip but we feel he stays it well – we have been lucky at the track before so hoping we’ve got a fair e/w chance here in an open contest.”

3rd 9/1 Tim Vaughan

“Arthur Mac – Second runner up at Newcastle today and another that won well last time out. Lovely horse that is a big rare baby, but the penny is staring to drop. Stepping up in trip will suit and the ground is fine too. We’ve a bit to find with Nestor Park on the ratings though as we race off level weights and that horse is rated 12lbs higher than us. Still feel we’ve got a fair e/w chance though with the horse going the right way and little depth to the race.”

2nd 9/2 Henry Oliver

“Another Theatre – Nice winner for us last time out at Catterick – into a handicap for the first time here so we’ll learn more about her mark here but is well and has come out of that last race nicely too. The horses seem to be running well at the moment too and Jason helps by taking 7lbs off the saddle. A horse going the right way though. Track, trip and ground are fine so looking for a solid run – but, as I say, just hard to assess her opening mark against the oppo as 11st 10lbs to carry (less Jason’s claim).”

1st 15/8 Henry Oliver

“Lord Murphy is becoming a little frustrating as we seem to be getting no luck in-running through the race. We are once again given a wide draw, so will be forced to drop in & ride for luck! Having said that, the horse is in good form in himself and is capable of picking up a race of this nature, so it will all depend on the splits through the race. 1 1/2 stars.”

2nd 10/1 Jamie Snowden

“Hijran – Won well at Hereford two runs back but failed to follow-up last time at Leicester. The ground there was probably a bit too lively for him though and on this slightly softer surface then a better run is expected. Jascon remains in the saddle and claims 7lbs again. Only 5lbs higher than last win and seems well after a break. Open contest but feel we’ve got fair e/w claims. “

1st 11/2 Henry Oliver

“KING COOL has had a break and back over hurdles again having won a chase at Plumpton last May but off a considerably lower mark than today over hurdles. Possible that KING COOL might find it tough off this mark but switched from Fontwell yesterday as the ground looked very testing there yesterday and hoping for considerably better ground today.”

1st 9/2 Gary Moore

“Rosy World – Looks between the Nicholls and Hobbs runners but we head here with a fair each-way chance too. Will be a lot better for her recent run at Plumpton after a break and we at least get 7lbs from the main players. That was also her first run over hurdles so would have learned a lot. Well for a small break too and any rain a plus – with just 4 career runs will have more to come. Each-way. “

3rd 10/1 Suzy Smith

“The Crazed Moon – CD winner that heads here in great form after two recent wins. Up 7lbs for the last of those but remains in good heart at home. Ground is ideal so every chance of landing the three-timer. Jason continues in the saddle and claims a handy 8lbs too.”

1st 11/4 Henry Oliver

“Mr Scaramanga – Starting to get better handicapped and ran well here at his favoured track last time on his return from a break. Seems in top form and could easily go well at a big price if they go hard up front.”

1st 20/1 Simon Dow

“Redbridge Gold – Was second to Mega Yeats on her bumper debut and that form looks the best of offer here. She’s not had a clear run since but now she’s back on song and should run well as long as the ground doesn’t dry out too much.”

1st 5/1 Jamie Snowden

3/15 – Went onto win the Champion Hurdle
The average winning SP in the last 15 runnings is 5/2

Willie Mullins has won this race six times, so he’ll be pinning his hopes on Melon to try and make it ‘Seventh Heaven’ for the popular Irish handler. However, despite being the top-rated in the field he’s a horse that’s won just one of this last eight and also flopped in this race when only fifth last year. He’s a classy sort but simply doesn’t win enough for me. Supasundae won the prize last year and looks set to go well again. The Jessie Harrington-trained 9 year-old powered to a 2 ¼ length win last year and it will be a brave man to say he won’t go close again here. However, there is one fly in the ointment ahead of his chance – a certain APPLE’S JADE. This popular mare is a winning machine that’s won 8 of her last 10 starts and 13 of her 19 career runs in total. More importantly she’s got three big factors on her side. Firstly, she’s 3-from-3 at Leopardstown, secondly, she gets a handy 7lbs from Melon and Supasundae, and finally the last three times she’s race against Supasundae she’s won each time! Okay, the drop back to 2 miles might not be ideal as she’s been doing all her running over 2m4f and 3m since 2016, but she’s still only 7 years-old so should still have plenty of pace for this and the fact we know she also stays further could be a lethal combination at a track we know she loves.



Have a GREAT Weekend
