Horse racing suggestions: Hereford, Huntingdon and Lingfield, Monday twelfth Nov
Monday’s racing suggestions embrace an consideration grabbing 14/1 wager, whereas our nap runs for Colin Tizzard at Hereford.
Today’s scheduled eight-race card at Fairyhouse in Ireland has survived a stewards inspection having been abandoned yesterday however there have been no such issues at Huntingdon, Lingfield and Hereford, where it’s jumping all the greatest way.
Sneak a peek at Giving Glances
With nearly £25,000 up for grabs, it’s no shock that the feature two-mile handicap hurdle at Huntingdon this afternoon has attracted some first rate performers.
There are lots with possibilities within the 14-runner field, however Alan King’s Giving Glances (Huntingdon 1:40) will must have a stable each-way shout at 14/1, especially after catching the eye on both her most recent outings.
The winner of a Listed fillies’ novice hurdle at Doncaster last time period was outclassed after that in the Grade 2 Adonis Hurdle in February won by the good Fusil Raffles.
She wasn’t seen again till 5 weeks ago where she ran a blinder in a hot Newmarket handicap, finishing an in depth fourth over a mile-and-a-half.
She stayed on in the closing stages to complete fifth of 12 at Wincanton a few weeks later behind Sebastopol (now 12lb worse off), and off a 2lb decrease mark, appeals as the sort to go properly right here.
Sebastopol, Sofias Rock and Highly Prized are among a quantity of attainable dangers.
Ballyart to experience Lingfield mud
Today’s jumps action at Lingfield just isn’t for the faint-hearted. Conditions are set to be very testing and there won’t be too many horses who genuinely deal with the bog-like terrain.
Ballyart (Lingfield 1:50) may prove an exception having run the most effective race of his career in similar conditions when beaten on the bob over this trip in a Chepstow novice hurdle last December.
The Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained gelding didn’t construct on that promising display in 4 further outings final marketing campaign, but he ran better than his finishing place indicates when fourth out of five at Bangor final month in solely his second novice chase.
Admittedly, he was odds-on that day, however he formed well till fatiguing going to the final on his first begin for practically 5 months.
With that run beneath his belt and his yard currently operating at a fantastic 25% profitable strike-rate, Ballyart is fancied at 16/5 to get off the mark at the main expense of Felons Court.
War to Lord it at Hereford
War Lord (Hereford 2:30 NAP) appears one of the best wager on the cardboard on this two-mile National Hunt novices’ hurdle and is taken to construct on his current successful hurdles debut at Plumpton.
The Colin Tizzard-trained son of Jukebox Jury is a half-brother to the yard’s first rate White Moon, and constructed on a modest first effort in a bumper to provide a most encouraging show on his hurdles bow, the place he jumped properly then stayed on in good type to beat Jackson Hill by a length.
The runner-up did the shape no hurt when a reputable third on heavy floor in a Sandown novice hurdle just lately, so hopes are high that War Lord, 15/8 with Paddy Power, can robust it out and beat his apparent major danger Akarita Lights, having his first begin for Ian Williams and returning to the fray following an absence of very nearly six months.
Formerly trained by Alan King, Akarita Lights stayed on properly enough to land the spoils in a five-runner affair at Market Rasen in March and may be one to control this time period, but he’ll do nicely to decrease the colours of the race-fit War Lord on this event.
Verdict: War Lord (Hereford 2:30 NAP) can take one other step up the ladder by sustaining his unbeaten report over hurdles. Giving Glances (Huntingdon 1:40 NB) is also anticipated to go properly off a beneficial mark, while Ballyart (Lingfield 1:50) ought to deal with the mud greatest in his novices’ handicap chase.
