ITV Racing Tips - Saturday 28th November


Race 1 - £1 Free Bet Today Handicap Hurdle Tips

Nicky Henderson has won two of the four runnings of this handicap, and I fancy he could make it three-from-five with CHAMPAGNE PLATINUM

The team's plan to get Champagne Platinum into the Northern Trust Handicap backfired last year, when Henderson's six-year-old didn't make the cut. Instead, he had to enter the Kim Muir, where Derek O'Connor's mount travelled well but didn't see out that 26-furlong trip.

Henderson thought enough of Champagne Platinum to throw him into Grade One company as a novice hurdler, on the back of an impressive maiden win here at Newbury. He should be much more comfortable back over hurdles, and looks pretty well-treated running off 137.

Race 3 - Intermediate Hurdle Tips

I picked out MARIE'S ROCK as an outsider to back in the 2021 Champion Hurdle market at the start of the season, and I'm fully expecting Nicky Henderson's mare to make a winning reappearance in, what used to be known as, the Gerry Fielden.

Marie's Rock is unbeaten in three career starts, winning a bumper before a couple of excellent victories over hurdles last December. Nico De Boinville's mount hurdled beautifully at Haydock and Taunton, and showed an eye-catching turn-of-foot to put both races to bed. She was then backed into favouritism for the Mares' Novices' Hurdle, but injury ruled Marie's Rock out of a Cheltenham Festival debut.

Epatante won this race 12 months ago, and went on to be crowned Champion Hurdler. Marie's Rock is rated four-pounds higher than what Epatante was at this stage of her career, and there's every chance she could emulate her stablemate.

Race 4 - Ladbrokes Trophy Tips


After Vinndication was confirmed in this handicap, Kim Bailey's charge rose to the head of the market. The Conditional, Aye Right and Copperhead are also fancied, but the betting is looking incredible tight, with the top nine contenders sitting between 6/1 and 12/1.

Read our full guide to Saturday's Ladbrokes Trophy to find out which two runners we think you should back in this historic handicap on Saturday.

Race 5 - Rehearsal Chase Tips


Another handicap chase where the betting is incredibly condensed. Eight of the ten runners can be found at prices under 10/1. 

Pym is the clear class angle here, and should be there-or-thereabouts. He does, however, have to give plenty of weight to some dangerously well-handicapped rivals, and the one who appeals most to me is WHATMORE.

Henry Daly's charge hit the frame countless times as a novice last season, placing in Graded chases at Warwick and Kempton, before a fourth-place finish behind Imperial Aura and Galvin - who've both come out and impressed this season - at the Cheltenham Festival.

On his reappearance, Whatmore carried a low-weight into the Sodexo Gold Cup. Richard Johnson's mount produced his best round of jumping to date that day, but couldn't quite catch course-specialist Regal Encore, who won the race for a second time.

The handicapper has pushed Whatmore up to 142 following that narrow defeat, but Daly's eight-year-old has registered RPRs in excess of that mark on four of his six starts over fences. Whatmore's only chase win came on good ground, and three miles seems to be his most effective trip.

Race 6 - Handicap Chase Tips


The King Of May E/W3:35pm Newbury Watch Racing Free Online At Ladbrokes Handicap Chase (For The Jim Joel Memorial Trophy) (Class 2) 2m½fGET 6/1 HERE

A fascinating two-mile handicap to end Saturday's ITV Racing tips, and I really fancy the chances of bottom-weight, THE KING OF MAY.

Brian Ellison's charge drifted out to 20/1 ahead of his first start over fences at Carlisle last October. The King Of May proceeded to outjump his rivals down the home straight, sealing a comfortable half-length success over a future Grade One winner in Espirit Du Large.

Heavy ground then didn't suit The King Of May up at Newcastle, where he finished last of three behind Simply The Betts. Ellison's six-year-old bounced back to winning ways on his final novice start at Sedgefield, defeating some decent rivals off a mark of 131.

The King Of May is only up three-pounds for that victory at Sedgefield, and Nico De Boinville's mount will be gaining weight from the whole field on Saturday. His win at Carlisle last season is one of the best pieces of form on offer, and good ground is ideal.
