Horse racing Lucky 15 – Monday’s top selections

Sunday’s NAP was a winning one, so take a look at our Lucky 15 selections (four singles, six doubles, four trebles and a four-fold) for the British meetings on Monday, February 6, 2017.

Sedgefield Races

LUCKY 15 SELECTIONS

KING OF FASHION (Sedgefield 3.05) confirmed the promise of his comeback run when beaten a length by Progress Drive in an Ayr novices’ hurdle by going one better over the same course and 2m4½f distance early last month. He was visually impressive in scoring by six lengths over Strong Economy, who duly franked the form when going in last week. The selection, trained by Ian Duncan, appears to have benefited from a tongue tie and he looks the one to be on in the seven-runner 2m5f novices’ hurdle, which is a qualifier for the Northern Staying Hurdle Series final.

SIMMPLY SAM (Sedgefield 4.05) may be able to defy a penalty for winning at Ayr last week. He had heavy ground that suited her and useful 7lb claimer Will Easterby renews the partnership today. She loves the mud and while she came unstuck in tacky ground over a trip too far at Catterick previously, Marjorie Fife’s 10-year-old had been consistent before that, having been placed in her previous three run, including when winning at Newcastle in December. The going is officially soft at Ayr and any further rain will help her as she faces 11 rivals in the 2m3½f handicap hurdle.

PUSHKIN MUSEUM (Wolverhampton 3.50) is another hoping to defy a penalty, having scored over today’s course and distance in a poor race last week. Patrick Morris’ six-year-old is far from reliable, but he travelled well just off the pace and had a decent pitch off the bed, which is crucial on this tight track. He has dropped down the weights and may well start taking advantage after an indifferent spell. A fair draw in stall 8 should not be a detriment as he tackles 12 rivals in this 0-60 contest.

NICKI’S NIPPER (Sedgefield 2.35) has been steadily rising up the weights since scoring her (in April) and at Cartmel (June). The handicapper appeared to have her measure for a spell and while her chasing debut was one to draw a line under when she returned to action in December, she stuck on really gamely in defeat when switched back over timber here last month and was beaten just under three lengths by Alys Rock. She is no certainty, but on a quiet day where few stand out for betting purposes, you know Sam England’s runner will always try her best.

LUCKY 15 SELECTIONS

WISH IN A WELL (Fontwell 2.10) has proved a little frustrating to say the least. Ben Case’s representative had 19 runs without success before blinker were applied for the first time at Fakenham in a 2m5f amateur riders’ handicap chase four weeks ago They seemed to work the oracle, as he scooted in, despite making a blunder at the second last, to win by 20 lengths. There is no guarantee they will work again but he was rated as high as 113 as a novice and one assumes the eight-year-old should be on a workable mark of 72. Today’s 2m5f handicap chase is more competitive, but if the headgear works, his confidence would not have been hurt and he may well follow up. London busses and all that.

VOLVALEIN (Sedgefield 1.50) won a novices’ handicap chase off a rating of 111 three starts ago here in October, although the form has barely been franked with just one subsequent winner coming out of that race. A soft-ground bumper winner, that was only his second start for the Brian Ellison yard and he did not run badly next time in better company at Sandown off a 5lb higher mark, finishing third to Pilgrims Bay over 2m4f. He is having his first run since before Christmas today and his jumping seems to have improved, if taking his latest narrow second to Eastview Boy at Newcastle is taken at face value. He seems better suited by 2m than a bit further and Ellison applies cheekpieces for the first time today in a better race. Off a mark of 116, he does get plenty of weight from his four rivals, however.

IDENTITY THIEF (Leopardstown 2.30) can land the Grade 1 Irish Arkle on a cracking card at the Dublin track. Henry de Bromhead’s seven-year-old was good enough to win the Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle in 2015 but he was just short of top class as a hurdler. He has started his chasing career in fine style, though, winning a beginners’ chase at Punchestown before scoring in a Grade 2 novices’ event at the same track in November. He was pulled up lame in his last start in the Grade 1 Racing Post Novice Chase at Leopardstown on Boxing Day, but if near his best, the seven-year-old will be a tough nut to crack for his three rivals in the 2m1f affair.

NICHOLS CANYON (Lepardstown 3.30) might upset the odds in the Grade 1 Irish Champion Hurdle. With Faugheen ruled out through injury yesterday, Willie Mullins relies on the seven-year-old, who isn’t a bad second-string. Third to similarly sidelined stablemate Annie Power in the Champion Hurdle last March, he opened his autumn campaign with victory in the Grade 1 Morgiana Hurdle at Punchestown, but the seven-times Grade 1 winner does have a bit to find with Petit Mouchoir on his runner-up effort to that rival in the Ryanair Hurdle in late December. We think he can overturn that form, however.

Horse racing Lucky 15 – Friday’s top selections

Take a look at our Lucky 15 selections (four singles, six doubles, four trebles and a four-fold) for the British meetings on Friday, January 13, 2017.

Lingfield Races

 

LUCKY 15 SELECTIONS

O O SEVEN (Huntingdon 3.20) 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 today’s 2m4f trip should be ideal, despite giving away upwards of 16lbs to his five rivals. Henderson was planning to run in the Grade 2 Dipper Chase at Cheltenham but withdrew him from that, although the JLT Novices’ Chase at the Festival meeting still the long-term plan.

POTTERS LADY JANE (Lingfield Park 3.00) won a bumper on her second start at Fakenham and was thought enough of to run in a Grade 2 bumper at Aintree in April. The Lucy Wadham-trained mare has since had a trio of runs in maidens on all-weather surfaces and has twice finished as a runner-up, both times at Chelmsford. Latterly, she ran a fair race behind Lord Topper in a 1m5f in October, when touched off by half a length. She has not run since, but goes well fresh and the Newmarket stable remains in fine fettle. This 1m4f fillies’ handicap won’t take a lot of winning, so she has a reasonable chance off a mark of 73.

SNOW SQUAW (Lingfield 2.30) goes in search of her first win after five unsuccessful attempts. David Elsworth’s runner was backed from 25/1 to 11/2 on her Newmarket debut in July, but was a no-show behind Hawana. She looked much straighter next time at Ascot but was beaten 2l by Kazimiera, who went on to finish runner-up in a Listed race at Newmarket in October. The nearest she came to success was when short-headed in a 7f AW Kempton fillies’ maiden in August but she has a bit to prove after two below-par efforts in her last two runs. She was understandably keen after a long break last time over 1m and Elsworth sends her sprinting now, as she takes on six rivals in a weak 5f maiden. She should hold a major chance.

FREE STONE HILL (Sedgefield 3.10) runs in his first handicap finishing third at Worcester and at this track when in November when well held by Prime Venture in a six-runner 2m1f novices’ hurdle. Dan Skelton trains the seven-year-old who runs off a hefty-looking mark of 112, given what he has so far achieved – six runs without success and not within 19 lengths of the winner in each of his last three outings). Still, the handicapper has seen something to think that he should be competitive in the extended 2m½f event, in which eight go to post. The assessors rarely get it wrong.

cue-card

LUCKY 15 SELECTIONS

CUE CARD (Kempton Park 3.15) can win the King George VI Chase for the second successive year. While the race has cut up badly, with just five going to post for the 3m Grade 1 event, a case can be made for each of the quintet, such is the quality of the line-up. Having already landed the Betfair Chase, Cue Card is in line for a £1m bonus should he win this and the Gold Cup. Yet Colin Tizzard has thrown a spanner in the works, with stablemate and top novice Thistlecrack taking him on. Many suspect the small field will help the latter, yet Cue Card is a front-runner and Paddy Brennan will set the fractions, which may put pressure on Thistlecrack’s jumping. In truth, there is little between the two on paper and with Josses Hill, Silviniaco Conti and Tea For Two completing the line-up, whatever the outcome, we are assured of a top-class renewal.

RAINBOW DREAMER (Fontwell Park 12.35) can follow-up his juvenile hurdle win here over the same 2m1½f trip for Alan King. That was his third try over hurdles, but his previous run had come in Listed class and while he was a little keen in first-time cheekpieces, he ran out a ready winner form a Paul Nicholls-trained import who has won two from four starts in France. The selection is penalised for winning, as, too, is another Nicholls import, Saintemilion, who makes his British debut. That duo look the pick of a modest bunch.

MOUNTAIN KING (Wetherby 3.00) is the class act in the 2m3f handicap chase on a really decent card at Wetherby. The seven-year-old, who shoulders top weight and faces seven rivals, was shipped over from Ireland by Gordon Elliott in September to land a similar handicap at Perth off a mark of 133 and he runs off a 4lb higher mark here. Much depends on the ground conditions – Mountain King is better on decent ground, but he also prefers a left-handed track and goes that way round this time.

YUKON DELTA (Huntingdon 3.05) was placed in his first start over fences, having previously earned a double over hurdles for trainer Gary Moore at his local haunts Plumpton and Fontwell. He did not look a natural jumper at Plumpton last time, but that is a tricky course to navigate and he should be seen to better effect over Huntingdon’s easier right-handed track as he takes on seven rivals in a less-than-competitive 2m7½f handicap.

sandown-hurdles

LUCKY 15 SELECTIONS

TRISHULI ROCK (Wolverhampton 7.45) has been placed in all four starts after last week’s third over 1m½f here and can get off the mark at the fifth attempt in the 1m1½f maiden for trainer Marco Botti. Back in trip last time, she held a good position turning in but hung a little in the closing stages. While she does not appear to be progressing, she will not have to find much improvement to win what looks a weak maiden over the same trip.

DINO VELVET (Sandown Park 1.15) won a conditions race in the French provinces in May and was gelded before running fourth to Pleasure Dome in a 0-85 Flat handicap at Chester in September on his first start for Alan King. The three-year-old then made a pleasing start to his hurdling career, with a fairly slick round of jumping in the Grade 2 Triumph Hurdle Trial at Cheltenham last month. He looked no match for the winner, Defi Di Seuil, who had his measure before the selection came to grief at the last. Still, if none the worse for wear, he should get off the mark in the 2m juvenile hurdle.

ANDY KELLY (Exeter 12.55) won his only completed start over fences, beating subsequent Group 1 winner Ar Mad in a novices’ limited handicap at Plumpton last October. He had run just three times the previous season and suffered with leg trouble after his win, so would have needed the run when he appeared at Kempton Park a couple of weeks ago after 399 days on the sidelines. However, Emma Lavelle’s seven-year-old got in tight at the fifth fence and unseated Daryl Jacob. He looks very well handicapped, though, and is expected to go well in the extended 2m3f handicap chase.

THE CHARACTER (Sedgefield 1.40) bids for a hat-trick, having won two novice hurdles at Bangor (2m½f) and Musselburgh (1m7½f). The Donald McCain-trained five-year-old made all, defying a 7lb penalty and showing guts aplenty in fending off Golden Town last month, and now makes his handicap debut off a mark of 115. He looks to have been found a decent opportunity, as a few of his seven opponents in this extended 2m½f event will be either lacking match practice or are out of form.

lingfield-jumps

LUCKY 15 SELECTIONS

THE BAY OAK (Sedgefield 12.40) won a maiden point-to-point in March and made his seasonal a Rules debut for Dan Skelton’s yard in a 2m4f novices’ hurdle here two weeks ago, when chasing home the well-supported Le Breuil. The seven-year-old was guilty of hanging a bit on the final circuits and then ducking left when his rider gave him a reminder, but while comprehensively held, he was still 12 lengths ahead of the more experienced Mondlicht, who subsequently followed up at Musselburgh. This conditional novices’ hurdle over the same course and distance won’t take a lot of winning and the selection will have come on a bit for that first outing for seven months.

MINELLA ON LINE (Lingfield Park 3.10) landed a 2m3½f handicap chase at Plumpton last week on his seasonal and stable debut for Oliver Sherwood. That was off a near eight-month break and the drop in trip appeared to suit him better than when campaigned almost exclusively over 3m or more last term. He did make a couple of jumping errors but kept galloping in between fences and was a comfortable winner. If his jumping improves, he should build on this, as he looks fairly treated at the weights at present. He takes on five rivals in an intermediate handicap chase and may be able to defy the 7lb penalty.

BIG SIGH (Southwell 2.25) made his debut in what is usually a decent 7f Newmarket maiden two months ago and was not well supported. The son of Raven’s Pass finished seventh to the well-regarded Time Zone and the form was franked somewhat by the third, Red Label, who subsequently won at Leicester. Thought steadied at the start and held up in touch, he did not have the pace to go with them and weakened inside the final 1f. Chris Wall is not usually noted for his juvenile winners – he has had just one this season – but this one showed enough ability to think he could win a maiden and 7f looks his trip for now.

FORECAST (Lingfield Park 1.30) has his own ideas about the game, but Martin Keighley appears to have found the key to the four-year-old, judging by his recent Hereford novices’ hurdle win. The four-year-old was equipped with a first-time tongue strap and travelled easily before getting on top after the last in the 2m3½f event, beating Jennys Day by half a length. He was put under pressure to get up but wandered about a bit and he is no certainty to follow up in the 2m novices’ hurdle. However, his rivals have enough flaws of their own and victory will have done no harm to his confidence.

Horse racing Lucky 15 – Tuesday’s top selections

Huntingdon 2.jpg

LUCKY 15 SELECTIONS

ALL SET TO GO (Huntingdon 2.20) won a couple of Taunton novice hurdles in the spring for Paul Nicholls and after a pipe-opener at Chepstow last month, may be able to score in handicap company today. Rated 100 on the Flat, he appears to relish a firmer surface and only found one too good in the Swinton Handicap Hurdle at Haydock in May off a mark of 136. His return to action last month was off a 5lb higher mark and he goes off that mark, conceding weight all round, in the 2m handicap. This trip is questionable, as he may need slightly further now, but he won’t lack for sharpness.

THELIGNY (Lingfield Park 3.30) stayed on well in a 2m3½f novices’ hurdle at Huntingdon last month, following up his Kelso success and Tim Vaughan pitches the five-year-old into a handicap today off a mark of 122. He stays well, as he showed when beating subsequent dual Carlisle scorer Derintoher Yank by 14 lengths over 2m5f at Kelso in September – no mean feat after having not been seen since the previous November. Clearly on good terms with himself and with ease underfoot which he prefers, Thligny looks the one to beat in this six-runner affair.

PEGGIES VENTURE (Lingfield Park 12.50) looked to have come with a perfectly-timed run at Fontwell, but the fact she had taken a while to settle and the stiff uphill finish meant she could not reel in Don’t Tell Val. While she followed to follow up her bumper success here in March (when with Nick Gifford) on debut for Alan King, she looked the best horse in the race and may have just needed the run. She will be more effective when she goes hurdling, but there is every reason to think she can land the 11-runner 2m bumper if showing a similar level of form.

BISHOPS COURT (Sedgefield 1.35) won a 2m4½f point to point in March last year and while has not managed to win in 11 races under Rules since, he was placed in a couple of handicap hurdles and started the season with a close-up third to Truckers Glory at Ffos Las last month. The six-year-old makes his chasing debut for Neil Muholland in a 2m3f novices’ limited handicap in a race where less than half the 11 runners have had chasing experience.
