Racing preview from Aiden Clarke – Tips for friday 29/1
Excelli 8.00 Dundalk
Nap After winning comfortably over course and distance last time out and the same jockey on board, this looks like an excellent opportunity to increase the friday night slush funds with odds of 2/1 with Paddypower and Ladbrokes .
Ragner 1.50 Lingfield Nb
like a viking trilogy this aptly named 3year old for the David Simcock/Jamie Spencer duo should sail home in front and plunder this maiden stakes race and at odds of 6/4 with Skybet,Betfair and Bet365 get in early as it looks generous
At the top 1.15 Huntingdon
Nb The Skelton clan are at the top of their game at present and this looks like an interesting runner in this handicap chase.Dan Skelton will surely have this 6year old schooled to jump and at odds of 7/4 on offer at Ladbrokes get on early to top up the friday coffers
Moabit 1.35 Doncaster
Nb This is the first time over the sticks for this 4year old newcomer to the Paul Nicholls yard.Having proven stamina over this distance on the flat,if he can transfer that ability now hurdling then it should be more than a bit of a return at odds of 3/1 on offer with Totesport,Skybet,Paddypower,Betfred and Bet365
Custard the dragon 3.25 Lingfield
A nice slice of apple pie would’nt be the same without the custard and this dragon should warm it up nicely. With the more experienced Graham Gibbons on board today i’d be breathing fire if i did’nt recommend highly this 3year old from the Ralph Beckett yard at odds of 11/8 with Bet365
Buver Dair 1.35 Huntingdon
Its de ja vue all over again with this steering job on this 5year old for the Henderson/Fehily team.It stays the trip and acts on the ground and if you dare take the price on offer with Betfair at 2/11 as its shorter everywhere else .
Saint Roque 3.05 Doncaster
One of the two older horses in the race and coming from the Paul Nicholls yard. Having won last time out at Taunton on the same ground as today and 2lb lower than that win this looks like a good thing and should account for its rivals and the likely favourite Thomas Brown.At odds of 5/2 with Paddypower,Bet365 and 10Bet get on early and may the saints go with you.
Toumar 5.15 Wolverhampton
This Sea Of Stars filly looks to confirm the familys credentials and with Roger Varian taking this race last year,the nod has to go to this 3year old over its rivals.With the odds plunging as i write this get on with at 4/5 with Betfred,Skybet,Bet365,Totesport,and Betfair.
Hallstatt 6.15 Wolverhampton
After an outing over hurdles last time out and with Graham Lee on board today i give Hallstatt the headmasters pass to roam out in front and see off the competition today .Having all its best form on good ground this drop back in trip should suit and with odds of 9/4 on offer with Williamhill,Ladbrokes,Skybet,and Betfred the statts should read well
Jimmy Kelly 7.00 Dundalk
This animals name is the same as a mate of mines and if names mean ought it will be a quick outing to dash the hopes of The wheels of fortune.With a new jockey on board tonight and a truer run race i can hear me mate jim singing in me ears “lets get on it like a car car bonnet and doubles all round at the bar”.At odds of 5/2 with Paddypower and Ladbrokes.
Good luck all
