Alan Kelly's Horse Racing Tips for Newbury & Fairyhouse on Sunday


Plenty of Horse Racing in both Britain and Ireland on Easter Sunday and we have two tips for the meeting at Newbury and one for Fairyhouse.

“Tip of the Day” – Mine’s A Double – 5.05pm Newbury

Unbeaten in all three starts to date, Clive Cox’s unexposed sprinter can take this handicap off a mark of 94 before stepping up in class.


Hors Piste (Longshot) – 3.10pm Fairyhouse

Harry Fry’s Cheltenham Festival winner Love Envoi will attempt to retain her unbeaten record with a victory in this Grade 1 Mares Championship Final. Jonathan Burke’s mount will prove a hard act to beat, a fact likely to be reflected in the mare’s price.

Several of those who finished behind Love Envoi at Prestbury Park take each other on again here over this longer trip. At a big price and with bookmakers going four places, an each-way investment in the Willie Mullins-trained Hors Piste could pay dividends.

Jack Kennedy’s mount was travelling as well as anything with two to jump at Cheltenham before weakening on the run-in. That tame finish may have been down to the soft conditions rather than lack of stamina and on better ground the mare is worth another chance.


Ahorsewithnoname (Next Best) – 4.31pm Newbury

Beating all bar winner Love Envoi in the Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle at last month’s Cheltenham Festival, the Nicky Henderson-trained Ahorsewithnoname should take plenty of beating on her handicap debut racing off what looks a very attractive mark of 80.

The daughter of Cacique will be having her fourth start on the Flat, following victories at Catterick and Thirsk on her final two outings for previous handler Brian Ellison. With Ryan Moore booked for the ride, the seven-year-old can prove too good for top weight Rajinsky and Auriferous who has been running well on the all-weather.


Mine’s A Double (NAP) – 5.05pm Newbury

Trainer Clive Cox has an excellent record with sprinters and in Mine’s A Double he has a horse who could well be running in Listed or Group company before the end of the season.

Unraced as a two-year-old, the mount of Ryan Moore was unbeaten in all three starts in his first season last year, ending his campaign with a victory in an Ascot handicap off an opening mark of 88.

A revised rating of 94 still looks lenient for a horse with such potential and it will be disappointing if the colt fails to keep his 100% record before stepping up in class. The race-fit Digital from the in-form Kevin Ryan stable looks the main danger.
