Alan Thomson fancies an unexposed hurdler at Ascot on Saturday, one of his four tips on another great day's racing.

Ascot 3.00

SIXTEEN runners are declared for the 2m 3f handicap hurdle at Ascot and unexposed GLADIATEUR ALLEN (3.00) can overcome his inexperience at this level.

The five-year-old was having only his third career start when thumping odds-on Valleres by more than seven lengths here over 2m 5f four weeks ago and could have got in lightly, with Chester Williams taking off 5lb.

Malaya, fourth in 2019 and runner-up to Nordano last February, is a consistent mare and should again go well for the Nicholls yard. Jonjo O’Neill’s Arrivederci chased home Nicky Henderson-trained outsider Craigneiche over course and distance a month ago and is closely matched with Kateson and Dans Le Vent.

Ascot 2.25

REGAL ENCORE (2.25) has such a brilliant course record that he can defy the combination of advancing years and top weight in the ‘My Oddsboost’ On Betfair Swinley Chase.

The veteran is one of four JP McManus runners and aims to build on last year’s third to Ballyoptic off a slightly higher mark. His most recent third to Mister Malarky and The Conditional over course and distance confirmed he remains no back-number. Jerrysback is another McManus runner with solid credentials in an open event but Regal Encore looks a juicy each-way bet.

Haydock 2.05

At Haydock, Emitom is bidding to repeat last year’s success in the Grade 2 William Hill Rendlesham Hurdle. He returns from a 125-day break having failed to cut the mustard in two starts over fences and ON THE BLIND SIDE (2.05) is preferred.

The Henderson-trained gelding chased home classy Mcfabulous at Kempton last month and underlined his toughness only a week later by beating Lil Rockerfeller in a compelling dogfight at Market Rasen.

Itchy Feet has run with credit in quality chases this season and reverts to hurdles with an obvious chance. If all eight runners stand their ground, course and distance scorer Main Fact may make some appeal to each-way players.

Wincanton 3.18

At Wincanton, all eyes will be on Goshen as he bids to re-establish his Champion Hurdle credentials in the Betway Kingwell Hurdle. He comes with obvious risks and SONG FOR SOMEONE (3.18) and Navajo Pass are more appealing options.

Song For Someone is improving at a fair rate of knots and edged out Silver Streak in the International Hurdle at Cheltenham in December. On a line through third horse Ballyandy, he faces a serious challenge from Navajo Pass, well-supported at Haydock when making all to whip former champion Buveur D’air and Ballyandy in great style.

    ryders on the storm 3.35 well done all winners yesterday

    1145L – i dont like the look at the market so its throwaway stakes and not an acca boosterm also most of the wins were stakes races. but the last 10 from burke/lee at lingfield reads like this 1121134311, they only have one ride. RED RIGHT SAND 3/1

    early money comes for fav, balding had a few winners, probert is taken off for a 7lb claimer, given he was a neck 2nd last time, that should put him well in, but one of those i’ll be glad to avoid regardless of the result.

    • insider 2 weeks ago

      1215L – Furzig carried 15 more than Myseven 2 starts back over CD losing by a neck. Havlin takes over from a claimer on the 5/4 fav whilst 13/2 Furzig is 6lbs better off. Over CD Scarlet Dragon 5/1 was a sh behind Furzig, he is 4lbs better off. Using Pirate King as a form line, Furzig and Scarlet have both outperformed Midnights Legacy. The easing 16/5 CARDANO won over CD lto, on his highest mark up 4lbs, had Scarlet 2.25l behind who gets 4lbs back, I haven’t seen the race replay. KINGSCOTE has a pretty good strike rate for the trainer, his CD win lto was 0.3secs slower than the 5/4 fav, minefield race, big fav, Cardano is 11/10 top 2 which could cover the win stake 50/50. Fun stakes and again not one for accas :D

    • insider 2 weeks ago

      1250 L – Not digging into this lottery but did look at one, another risky proposition. MUSIC MAJOR has only one glimmer of hope from his last 8 runs, a 4/11 over 2f more here in December, he’s 3 lower today and back to 1m2f. Just over a year ago he has a CD 2nd and a win to his name off 56, he’s 8 lower today woth 4 places available at 16s, could be worth a small punt. SWEET MARMALADE is 20s and may deserve anything you can find down the side of your sofa.

    • insider 2 weeks ago

      neck 2nd then the assistance of a 7lb claimer… easy money.

      cardano wins, music major 25/1 3rd, good enough for me, hopefully some of the others can win me some more, lets have it.
