LUCKY 15 SELECTIONS

CLOUDY DREAM (Doncaster 2.30) gets the nap vote on a cracking day’s racing. Let’s face it, it would be too easy to go for Vroum Vroum Mag (Doncaster 3.05), In De Sceaux (Cheltenham 1.45) and Thistlecrack (Cheltenham 2.15) and Unowhatimeanharry (Cheltenham 4.0) as our quartet – at current odds, the acca would pay less than 4/1 in any case – and we don’t like being obvious, as our 13/2 winning nap on Thursday proves. So we go for one of the more trappy races of the afternoon. Yes, there are only four runners in the Grade 2 Lightning Novices’ Chase, but either one of them would hold a good chance. We go for Cloudy Dream on the strength of a fine run behind well-regarded Buveur D’air, conceding 8lb, at Haydock last time. Malcolm Jefferson’s seven-year-old made a winning start to his chasing career at Carlisle in October and followed up at Haydock in soft ground. Ideally he needs a decent gallop in better ground over 2m to show his best. With Marracudja in the line-up, the pace should be solid enough and the good ground will help his finishing kick.

COOLOGUE (Doncaster 3.40) came into his own on winter ground last season, stringing up a trio of runner-up efforts here, including when not beaten far by Ziga Boy in the Great Yorkshire Chase. He goes off a 6lb higher mark in today’s renewal of the competitive 3m handicap, having been just as consistent this term. Charlie Longsdon’s galloping grey landed a 3m1f handicap off a mark of 140 at Cheltenham on is seasonal debut at Cheltenham in October off 140 and while the Hennessy was a tough ask (pulled up), he bounced back, albeit to at a distance to be second to Three Faces West at Newbury again in December. We love horses (an people for that matter) with good attitudes, and while he may not be a top-drawer chaser, you know he will always give his best. We can’t ask for more.

COLE HARDEN (Cheltenham 4.00) may be able to upset the odds in a strong renewal of the Cleeve Hurdle, where Unowhatimeanharry is the clear market leader. We think he could be vulnerable and is a poor bet at current odds for the Stayers’ Hurdle. Cole Harden likes to force the pace and has already won the Group 1 Stayers’ Hurdle here two seasons ago. He was a shock 14/1 winner that day but overturned his Cleve Hurdle fourth with Saphir De Rheu to land the big prize. He had no chance with Thistlecrack in defence of his crown last season, finishing fourth. Connections gave him his chasing debut at Wetherby in early December, but with the Stayers’ hurdling division wide open, he was given another spin over them here in the Relkeel Hurdle on New Year’s Day. He tried to make all but did not have the finishing kick to stay with Agrapart and L’ami Serge. The ground was softer than ideal that day and better ground should help him today. We simply think a Warren Greatrex’s runner is over-priced at around 25/1.

METRONOMIC (Lingfield Park 1.20) has a tendency to carry his head a little awkwardly and has been beaten twice at fairly short odds on his last two runs for Richard Hannon, yet we feel he has the ability to win a low-grade 7f handicap all-weather against seven three-year-olds who, in one way or another, all have chinks in their armour. The selection can be a little keen so the cheekpieces are retained for a third time and while he is a 10-race maiden, we hope the penny is starting to drop with him.

LUCKY 15 SELECTIONS

O O SEVEN (Cheltenham 1.25) made a good start to his chasing career when scoring with ease at Cheltenham, beating he useful Sizing Tennessee and Rock The Kasbah in November. The strapping son of Flemensfirth won over 3m as a hurdler and he was a fine second in a Grade 1 novice hurdle at Punchestown in April. So it was something of a surprise that he was a beaten third as an odds-on favourite for his second spin over fences at Doncaster last time. The Nicky Henderson-trained seven-year-old did not quite get home over that 3m trip and he drops back to a more realistic 2m4½f as he takes on four rivals in the Grade 2 Dipper Chase, with the JLT Novices’ Chase at the Festival meeting still the long-term plan.

SUTTER’S MILL (Fakenham 2.30) has twice gone close in a couple of handicap hurdles off a mark of 100, at Ffos Las (2m4f) and Bangor (2m7f) and takes a slight step up in class today for a 2m7f event. The Evan Williams-trained six-year-old is still learning his craft but appears to be progressing with each run and while he races off a 5lb higher mark in taking on four rivals (including stablemate Abbeygrey), he appears to see this trip out well enough to think he can win one of these before too long.

CHARMIX (Exeter 3.00) is a 145-rated hurdler, so it is fair to say he has been a little disappointing in two starts over fences. He was free in taking on the subsequent winner at Fontwell in October on his chasing debut and was a little one-paced between the last two fences, having led again, at Bangor in November. Harry Fry’s inmate still has plenty of scope for improvement and he is given another chance in a 2m3f beginners’ chase against a few who look equally in need of the experience.

SIMMPLY SAM (Catterick 3.20) is not the most consistent sort. On a going day, she is genuine. On other days, she leaves connections feeling flummoxed and frustrated. However, Marjorie Fife’s 10-year-old made a promising return after seven months off when a distant third to Annie Alainn in a 2m½f soft-ground handicap hurdle at Newcastle early last month, which is a trip well short of her optimum. In April she had scored over 2m4½f off a mark of 74 and was not beaten far a few weeks later over 2.5 off a rating of 81. The step up to an extended 3m1f may prove pivotal and the booking of Brian Harding is intriguing.

LUCKY 15 SELECTIONS

MY TENT OR YOURS (Cheltenham 3.00) can land a sub-par renewal of the Grade 2 International Hurdle and, in so doing, score for the first time at this track, while thwarting a third success in the race for The New One. The Nicky Henderson-trained nine-year-old had that rival behind when he came back from injury to be runner-up in the Champion Hurdle in March and also has the benefit of an 8lb pull at the weights this time. My Tent Or Yours does have a little bit to find with Melodic Rendezvous, who beat him when the mud was flying at Haydock and while he settled better than he can, the pace of the race left something to be desired. Despite being past his best, we think he can get back to winning ways.

O O SEVEN (Doncaster 2.40) takes on three rivals in the Grade 2 December Novices’ Chase. One of last season’s top novice hurdlers, he looked every bit as decent over fences after sauntering to victory over Sizing Tennessee at Cheltenham last month. The Nicky Henderson-trained six-year-old made light work of six rivals on his chasing bow, recording a 10-length win. He is a big, scopey individual and soft ground holds no fears for him. He won over 3m as a hurdler so the step up to this trip (from 2m4½f last time) should not be against him – if anything, he could be harder to beat over it.

DEFI DU SEUIL (Cheltenham 12.05) faces just four rivals in a disappointing turnout for the JCB Triumph Trial Juvenile Hurdle. The Philip Hobbs-trained French import scored as he liked on his British debut at Ffos Las, never coming off the bridle. He looked a natural jumper when next seen at Cheltenham in a Grade 2 last month, and while he was getting 4lb from the length and a half runner-up Diable De Sivola, he again won with his head in his chest. He has a liking for soft ground and looks a very smart prospect.

SHAN DUN NA NGALL (Newcastle 2.35) won a dreadful Class 7 handicap over 1m5f at Chelmsford City recently, having previously won a selling hurdle at Stratford, so the Amy Murphy-trained five-year-old is clearly on good terms with himself at present. The combination of a visor and tongue-tie clearly helped last time when he had to come through horses after being caught in a pocket. Given that the plan was to make the running and make it a stamina test, hopes are high that he will easily handle the step up to an extended 2m and defy a 4lb rise in the 14-runner Class 6 handicap.

Horse racing Lucky 15 – Friday’s top selections

After yesterday’s winning NAP selection, take a look at our Lucky 15 selections (four singles, six doubles, four trebles and a four-fold) for the British meetings on Friday, December 9, 2016.

Cheltenham Gen 6.jpg

LUCKY 15 SELECTIONS

A HARE BREATH (Bangor-on-Dee 12.10) has always been considered a long-term prospect and makes a belated debut over fences in the extended 2m1f novices’ chase. Winner of a novices’ handicap at Cheltenham last November and when odds-on in a novices’ handicap hurdle at Kempton in January, the Ben Pauling-trained eight-year-old was a fine fourth in the Grade 3 Greatwood Hurdle at Cheltenham last month on his return from an eight-month break. He has won on soft ground before and has also won a point-to-point, so there is every chance he will start making up for lost time. He looks a novice chaser to follow this term.

YES I DID (Cheltenham 12.55) won a 3m1½f mares’ novices’ hurdle at Catterick in February under a double penalty, but is equally at home over shorter trips. Following a six-month break, Dan Skelton’s representative probably needed the run when making her seasonal debut at Fontwell in October, but she returned there to score very easily on her chasing debut in a three-runner affair over an extended 2m4½f mares’ beginners’ chase last month. She did take a look at one or two fences but she could not have won any more comfortably and with that track’s eccentricities teaching her plenty, improvement can be expected in a much more testing 10-runner mares’ handicap chase over a similar trip.

MOVIE LEGEND (Doncaster 2.50) may be the value in the extended 2m3f novices’ handicap hurdle. The six-year-old, who has a decent National Hunt pedigree (by Midnight Legend out of a 2m4f-2m6f-winning hurdler), joined Lucy Wadham from Ben Case in the summer with plenty to prove after seven unprepossessing starts in bumpers and hurdles. She may well soon put that indifferent start behind her, judged on her fine second to Lord Of The Island in a competitive 11-runner handicap hurdle at Towcester on her first start for her new yard, following a seven-month break. She was well backed in the 2m5f event, is entitled to come on for that run and looks potentially well handicapped off a mark of 110.

SAUSALITO SUNRISE (Cheltenham 1.30) looks the class act in a field of 12 for the Grade 3 Unicoin Group Handicap Chase. The Philip Hobbs-trained gelding won a 3m3f Grade 3 chase here last November off a mark of 144, on just his second start in handicap company. He was still a little green when scoring off a mark of 150 in a 3m soft-ground Listed chase at Ascot in February and was an impressive third under a huge weight in the race once known (and still commonly referred to) as the Whitbread Gold Cup at Sandown in April. There was not a lot wrong with his return to action at Cheltenham off a seven-month lay-off, either. He lost a shoe and was bang in contention for the race he won last year (when carrying a stone less), until they turned for home. The ring-rust knocked off, this classy sort may be a different proposition today, despite top weight in the 3m2f event.

LUCKY 15 SELECTIONS

BALLYANDY (Cheltenham 12.45) won the Grade 1 Cheltenham Bumper in March and that signalled a fourth win in five career starts. He signed off last season with a fourth in the Aintree Bumper when 4lb worse off with his rivals, so lost no caste in defeat. Today, he lines up against Moon Racer, who was three-quarters of a length too good for him on his seasonal return and hurdling debut at Perth in September. He travelled the best of the pair, but made a blunder two out which ultimately cost him. Nigel Twiston-Davies’ charge remains a serious prospect and while he would probably appreciate a stiffer test of stamina than in today’s 2m Sharp Novices’ Hurdle, he may well reverse the form with a 4lb pull at the weights.

FLYING ANGEL (Cheltenham 1.20) may have what it takes to land the Grade 2 Racing Post Arkle Trophy Trial Novices’ Chase on another great Cheltenham card. This is a 2m contest that has been dominated by Paul Nicholls and Philip Hobbs in recent years – Hobbs saddled the last two winners, while Nicholls sent out five of the six winners prior to 2014. However, we side with the Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained five-year-old, who won the Imperial Cup at Sandown in March and was not beaten far in a Grade 1 hurdle by Yorkhill at Aintree the following month. While he has had just two starts over fences, he impressed on his chasing debut at Perth, but was well beaten when coming to grief two out at Chepstow early last month. If forgiving that run, when something looked amiss, the grey would hold a fine chance if back to his best.

MORE BUCK’S (Fontwell Park 2.10) may well have bumped into a smart novice chaser in the shape of Dark Flame when going down by eight lengths at Sandown last time. The Paul Nicholls-trained six-year-old had the benefit of experience, so it was disappointing that he failed to build on his seasonal debut victory here at the start of October, when coasting to an eight-length win over Tanit River. He is up 2f to 2m5f for today’s novices’ limited handicap, which has attracted field of seven fairly decent chasers, so he may not have things his own way. However, he has winning form on this tricky track and four of his rivals are making their seasonal debuts, so the match-practice may count for a bit.

SPACE ODDITY (Fontwell Park 1.35) was made favourite for his first three starts in Britain and won the second of them, taking a 2m3f soft-ground novices’ hurdle at Taunton in March. The heavy ground got the better of him next time at Exeter when failing to settle early on and he could have done with a better pace when going down narrowly to a 50/1 shot at Taunton when last seen in April. The Harry Fry-trained five-year-old makes his seasonal debut in a 2m1½f handicap hurdle off a mark of 118 and gets weight from all his seven rivals today, with four also having their first start of the season. This is a tough assignment, but we expect him to be fit and firing.

LUCKY 15 SELECTIONS

LA BAGUE AU ROI (Wetherby 12.20) had looked a decent prospect when winning three bumpers in style, only to disappoint a little in the Grade 2 mares’ bumper at Aintree in April. The Warren Greatrex-trained five-year-old made her hurdling debut at Uttoxeter last month, overcoming an early mistake to make all the running and score readily. She has reportedly not been easy to school, but has been getting better with practice, and connections are eyeing the mares’ novice hurdle at Cheltenham with her, so she is held in high regard. She takes on five rivals in the 2m novices’ hurdle and should be able to stay unbeaten in this sphere for a while longer.

SULTAN BAYBARS (Lingfield 11.45) was pitched into Group 3 company on only his second start and was not disgraced in running Pleaseletmewin to four and a half lengths over 7f at Newbury. The Roger Varian-trained juvenile son of Invincible Spirit, a half-brother to Group 1winning juvenile Termagant, had travelled powerfully on his debut when scoring at Kempton, although that form is still to be franked by any of his rivals. He steps up to 1m today and is back on the all-weather, and the extra distance in this five-runner novices’ event should be to his benefit.

BIG LACHIE (Wolverhampton 5.45) has been a consistent juvenile, despite winning just one of his 11 starts for Jamie Osborne. The son of Camacho has been runner-up three times before getting off the mark at Sandown in September, beating subsequent scorer Commander Cole in a 5f maiden. He was not beaten far in a subsequent Chester nursery and did best of those who were held up when fifth of 17 at York last month. This will be only his second try on the all-weather and in taking a steep drop in class for this 6f nursery, it should do his confidence no harm.

ROLLING DYLAN (Uttoxeter 1.05) won his bumper on his second start and has been subsequently paced in all four of his starts over hurdles without getting his head in front. The Philip Hobbs-trained five-year-old signed off last season with a decent third in a handicap hurdle off a mark of 124 and after a seven-month break, returned to run Laser Light close at Chepstow last month. It appears he bumped into a horse with plenty of potential there and he should strip fitter for 2m4f maiden hurdle, in which he faces 17 rivals. Another bold showing is anticipated.

LUCKY 15 SELECTIONS

O O SEVEN (Chelteham 2.05) can land a decent renewal of the extended 2m4f novices’ chase, the third leg of a cracking six-race card. Twice runner-up in Grade 1 hurdles, including when behind Yorkhill in the Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown, the Nicky Henderson-trained six-year-old is an interesting recruit to chasing. A three-time winner over hurdles, he will have done plenty of schooling and will appreciate any ease in the ground. Among the smart rivals he faces today, Barters Hill rates the obvious danger, but do not discount Its’Afreebee, either.

COMMANDER COLE (Wolverhampton 5.45) appeared to finally get the hang of things at Newcastle last time, winning a 7f maiden by eight lengths eased down. The first time hood and the step up in trip enabled him to score on his third start, having previously raced over sprint trips. The Kyllachy juvenile, who cost 150,000 guineas as a yearling and who is a half-brother to the progressive 7f-1m4f winner Scarlet Dragon, steps up to an extended 1m today and if the hood has the desired effect again, the Saeed bin Suroor-trained juvenile may be able to concede weight to his five rivals and score again.

ST GREGORY (Newcastle 1.40) steps up in class in search of a hat-trick in the 3m handicap hurdle after comfortable wins at Hexham and Ayr. The dual chase winner responded well to pressure to score by eight lengths in her last outing off a 7lb higher mark than when scoring at Hexham 24 days previously. She goes up another 7lb today in a better event, but is at the top of her game and the Nicky Richards-trained mare should hold her own again.

HERSIGH (Lingfield Park 11.45) got off the mark at the third attempt when scoring in a Chelmsford City 1m maiden last month, leading throughout and finding plenty when asked. She improved each time she stepped up in trip until she tackled nursery company at Newmarket when racing with the choke out in the early stages of a 1m1f event on Good to Soft ground three weeks ago. She was not disgraced in finishing fourth to Desert Skyline off her mark of 78, and she should find this drop back to 7f to her liking. The class drop and first-time cheekpieces should also be to the benefit of the Saeed bin Suroor-trained filly.
