Todays Racing Tip - MOVIE LEGEND

Time & Track - 1.15 Warwick (12/01) 

 

Best Odds - 5/2 @ Bet365

Stake - 1pt win

Analysis - Four times a chase winner which has included one from this mark at Wetherby just over a year ago on soft ground. His form took a slight dip at the end of last season from higher marks but has come back to that good form so far this term, winning on reappearance before a couple of good seconds, most notably behind Bun Doran at Cheltenham (both from this mark). The longer trip wouldn’t have suited at Ascot when last seen and the booking of Richard Johnson catches the eye, likely to go close if handling Warwick’s jumping test.

Todays Racing Tip - DARLING MALTAIX

Time & Track - 2.40 Kempton (12/01) 

Best Odds - 8/1 @ Bet365

Stake - 1pt win

Analysis - A typically open Lanzarote Hurdle and my selection comes from a yard who have won this a couple of times in recent years. He travelled menacingly on handicap debut before getting beaten for pace over 2m at Taunton and was staying on over the same trip at Wincanton when third next time, so it was no surprise to see him get his head in front when upped to this 2m5f trip at Ascot just before Christmas and he done that in taking fashion. The handicapper has raised him 12lb for that but still has plenty to offer over this trip and Lorcan Williams takes 5lb off his back.

Todays Racing Tip - KAPGARRY

Time & Track - 2.50 Wetherby (12/01) 

Best Odds - 6/1 @ William Hill

Stake - 1pt win

Analysis - Lightly-raced six-year old who scored over C&D in a novice hurdle back in October before finding a Grade 2 at Cheltenham perhaps too hot too handle, though finished a respectable fifth. He wasn’t so good on handicap debut at Ascot last time out but that came over a longer trip on soft ground so the drop back to this journey on a good surface can see this unexposed gelding go better from a pound lower mark in what looks a much less demanding race.

Todays Racing Tip - STEP BACK
Time & Track - 3.00 Warwick (12/01)
Best Odds - 6/1 @ Bet365

Stake - 1pt win

Analysis - This nine-year old is very lightly-raced for his age having only had the seven starts under rules (was a multiple point-to-point winner prior to this). He fairly bolted up when tackling this 3m5f trip for the first time when a 13-length winner of the old Whitbread Gold Cup at Sandown at the end of last season in first-time cheekpieces. That headgear was left off on return at Chepstow in October (3m) when well beaten but they are back on for this, stepped back up in trip this prominent racer should go well if reproducing the form of that Sandown win and the assistance of David Bass is interesting.

Todays Racing Tip - BALLYKAN
Time & Track - 3.15 Kempton (12/01)
Best Odds - 4/1 @ Bet365

Stake - 1pt win

Analysis - Hasn’t won since the autumn of 2016 (from a 4lb higher mark than here) but has been running some good races in defeat including in this same race last year when second behind the ill-fated Fountains Windfall who had bags of potential. He’s a pound lower now and he was even better over this C&D after that when beaten just under four-lengths in a Grade 3 on good ground back in February from this mark of 133. Blew away the cobwebs at Fakenham after a 237-day absence in mid-October and a short break since could well have freshened him up for this, can hopefully go one better this time around with conditions in favour.

Todays Racing Tip - LUNGARNO PALACE
Time & Track - 3.35 Warwick (12/01)
Best Odds - 6/1 @ Bet365

Stake - 1pt win

Analysis - Has produced two solid runs since going handicapping, both over 2m5f at Cheltenham, one of which was when beaten five-lengths by First Assignment but that rival now re-opposes on 16lb better terms. He was beaten only half-a-length on only previous course run and if seeing out this longer trip he could well play a major role from a featherweight on ground that suits.

Result - Lost
