ITV Racing Tips - Friday 26th November


Race 1 - Maiden Hurdle Tips


All eyes will be on Jonbon as Nicky Henderson's expensive recruit makes his hurdles debut. At 2/7, he's not really a betting proposition, but it would be good to see a novice blow us away on this side of the Irish Sea.

Given there are three paid places available, I'm going to have a small each-way punt on CHARLIE'S GLANCE. Andrew Martin's five-year-old won a bumper here at Newbury last season, beating six future winners by over five lengths. Things didn't go to plan in the Grade Two bumper at Aintree, but he comes from a solid family of jumpers and James Martin takes seven off his back.

Race 2 - Novices' Handicap Chase Tips

This is going to be a cracking little race. The completely unexposed Boothill could be a star over fences. As could Mister Coffey - who I suspect would want the ground to be a little softer - and Solo, who looked rejuvenated on his first start over fences at Ascot last month. At the prices, though, I'm going to side with last year's Betfair Hurdle runner-up, FIFTY BALL

Gary Moore handed his charge a tough task on his chase debut, running against two in-form rivals over a new trip of 20-furlongs, around a Sandown track which novices can find very challenging. I thought Fifty Ball coped with the challenge brilliantly. Jamie Moore's mount made up ground down the back straight and was still on the bridle approaching the second-last, but couldn't quite find another gear on the run to the line.

Despite clocking an RPR of 143 at Sandown, the handicapper has kept Fifty Ball on this workable mark of 135. We know he goes well around this track and I'm sure dropping back to two miles will really suit.

Having jumped poorly for much of the Old Roan, Fanion D'Estruval finished like a train to cross the line just four lengths adrift of Allmankind. Venetia Williams' six-year-old is greatly respected, even under top-weight, but I fancy he might struggle to give seven pounds to a dangerous contender like PHOENIX WAY.

Harry Fry's eight-year-old won his last two starts over hurdles, looking every inch a three-miler when scoring at Huntingdon. Surprisingly, Fry's charge beat Stratagem over the minimum distance on his chase debut last season and bounced back from bursting blood vessels in the Henry VIII to place fourth behind Protektorat in the Grade One at Aintree.

Phoenix Way goes well fresh and should be fine on good-to-soft. He could progress quickly in handicap company this season.

Race 4 - Long Distance Hurdle Tips


Emma Lavelle will be hoping that cheek-pieces can help Paisley Park rediscover his old spark. However, the former Champion Stayer was no match for INDEFATIGABLE when they clashed in the West Yorkshire Hurdle and I fancy Paul Webber's stable star will confirm those placings.

Having travelled well and jumped nicely on the outside of the pack at Wetherby, Indefatigable really opened up on the run to the line, kicking clear to beat Proschema and Paisley Park by a comfortable distance. Daryl Jacob's mount has five pounds more to carry, but I doubt that will stop her following up.

ONE FOR YOU rounded off his novice hurdles campaign with two good handicaps wins, finding plenty for pressure at both Ludlow and Market Rasen, beating several future winners in the process.

On his reappearance three weeks ago, Philip Hobbs' six-year-old ran in the Pertemps Qualifier here at Newbury, finishing a good third behind two strong rivals in Stoney Mountain. I like backing horses near the bottom of the weights in these early-season staying handicaps, especially over hurdles, and One For You remains open to further improvement.
