This Saturday, Alan Thomson fancies an Irish raider in the feature race at Newbury

CABARET QUEEN (3.00) may have been let in quite lightly and Willie Mullins is keen on her chances in the Ladbrokes Trophy Chase at Newbury.

Mullins scooped this prestigious prize, formerly the Hennessy Gold Cup, with Total Recall two years ago, Ireland’s first success since Bright Highway in 1980 (and only their second since Arkle in 1965). Cabaret Queen came home an easy winner of the Munster National on soft ground at Limerick last month and is preferred over Mullins’ other contender Yorkhill. Gordon Elliott bolsters the Irish challenge with Galway Plate winner Borice, nicely weighted on 10st 13lb now returning from minor wind surgery.

Colin Tizzard has won two of the past three renewals with Native River and Sizing Tennessee, and saddles a quartet headed by last year’s runner-up Elegant Escape, wearing first-time blinkers. There has been significant support all week for stablemate Mister Malarky but he has something to prove after flopping on his comeback run at Ascot four weeks ago.

Nicky Henderson is also armed with four runners, including likely favourite Ok Corral. His gelding was last seen pulling up under atrocious conditions in the four-mile National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham in March but had earlier mopped up novice chases at Plumpton and Warwick. Ok Corral was a useful hurdler, chasing home Kilbricken Castle in the Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham, and should be thereabouts along with stable companion On The Blind Side. Strong stayer Yala Enki has his first start for Paul Nicholls and is the yard’s sole representative.

With 16 runners declared for the 2m 4f handicap hurdle there is scope for each-way betting and DAN McGRUE (1.50) is fancied to go close for the Nicholls yard. He has always promised to develop into a smart horse and put favourite Acey Milan in his place at Plumpton, despite compromising his chance with a slow leap at the last flight. His breathing operation seems to have been successful and with William Hill going five places each-way, he has to be the bet. Henderson saddles one of his market rivals, Downtown Getaway, and this ex-Irish gelding is still lightly raced and open to improvement.

Nicholls and Henderson are vying for favouritism in the Ladbrokes Handicap Chase with Magic Saint and Whatswrongwithyou respectively, but the each-way vote goes to CHESTERFIELD (3.40). A former winner of the Scottish Champion Hurdle, Chesterfield ran with distinction in several big handicap hurdles before a belated switch to fences. He beat Dell Oro in a Beginners’ Chase at Kempton last November and his second to useful Hell’s Kitchen in a Graduation Chase at Carlisle should have put him spot-on for this assignment.

Lake View Lad won last year’s Betfair Rehearsal Chase at Newcastle but is 17lb higher in the ratings following a highly successful campaign. He should go well if tuned up for his comeback, as should KILFILUM CROSS (3.20), the grey having had the benefit of a run at Stratford 30 days ago when third to Rocco. Henry Oliver’s grey ran a stormer in the Kim Muir at the Cheltenham festival, leading on the home bend before being caught by Any Second Now.

    I wish people would say why they are tipping a horse just a few words would do seems pointless if your a horse tipster and you dont say why it will win

    • Mr Fixit 1 year ago

      People commenting are not “horse tipsters” – they are punters just like you.
      The tipsters are Thommo and Voice of Value and they give their reasoning.

    • 1 year ago

      I didnt actually think of it like that to be honest

  13. 1 year ago

    Double carpet and data are only ones who do it thats why i like them best

    • 1 year ago

      It is frustrating losing money based o another punters word alone.. did it myself for a long while but we can only blame ourselves.. thats why i got into this and also try give some reasoning.. best use others picks as a shortlist to thrlen look at yourself.. if u cant look at them bet small enough so it doesnt affect ur pocket

    • Mr Fixit 1 year ago

      Good advice.

    • 1 year ago

      Data i hold my hands up i cant read horse form myself i just dont understand all of it so i do need to follow other tipsters. I always bet small never more than £15 a week betting on horses is just purely fun for me i just would like more wins ha thanks for advice

    • Wildhorse 1 year ago

      I think mostly of all tipsters here , study the races before the send there tips , why we loved this sport , we check also the same things like the the tipsters Alan and Voice of V. , but in the end you must trust in your self , because you play with your owen money !!

    • Mr Fixit 1 year ago

      Absolutely true. I know nothing about racing but will sometimes follow tipsters like VoV, Thommo and Garry Owen based on their logic.

    • 1 year ago

      handicap form isn’t hard to look at IF you have a desktop PC.

      use sporting life, click on the horse’s name to open in a new tab. it will list all of the horses races ever, then you check what rating and type of race (distance, going, class) they are in today.

      then you basically compare what he has done previously with today’s conditions.. then you can add in trainer form, jockey booking and odds to also guide.

      this allows you to discount a decent amount of horses and then with 30+ races a day, you will be able to find ideal betting opportunities.

    1.00 F Darver Star 40/1 E/W. PP

    Early one for tomorrow, taking a big chance here but I like the form and odds worth a small E/W wager. The JOLLY Envoi Allen 5/6 should win followed home by Abacadabras 5/1. My selection is going for a 5-timer but facing stiffer opposition today. Might pull off a shock, very good chance of hitting the frame.

    12.20 C Charmix 22/1 E/W SKYBET paying 4.

    My selection makes his stable debut after a long absence but has slipped to a very attractive mark. Worth some E/W interest, SKY only firm paying 4.

    Apple’s jade 2-40 fairyhouse 11-4 NAP.

    Could be a last chance saloon for her as another poor run and I don’t see where they go with her after.
    Hoping this race which she has won 3 times rejuvenates her.
    She lost 9 lengths to bacardys last time but gets the 7lb allowance today which is a plus.
    If apple’s jade does rediscover form penhill could be a danger if fit after a long absence.

    • elvis parsley 1 year ago

      Bonkers bet.
      Somme soldier 3-40 fairyhouse 66-1 Ew (bet Victor). Will look for Ew extra options tomorrow.

  23. 1 year ago

    Elvis it has been tipped by a couple of Irish Internet Tipping sites, I have had a few quid E/W on it last night.

  24. 1 year ago

    Elvis, No Grey Areas 18/1 also been tipped. Have something to prove thou, the JOLLY Ferny Hollow 4/5 looks a good sort. was bought 300K by W. Mullins at the Cheltenham Feb Sales after winning point-to-point at Knockanard by 15 lengths. This race produces high-class winners last year Envoi Allen won it.
