The Best Horse Racing Tips for Carlisle on Monday

After passing a precautionary inspection on Sunday, the Cumbrian racecourse at Carlisle is set to provide the only jumps action on Monday afternoon. We will supply Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions for three of the races taking place, starting with the 2m 4f handicap chase at 3.00pm.

Our other two Horse Racing tips come in the following 2m 1f handicap hurdle at 3.35pm and thirty minutes later at 4.05pm a three mile and half a furlong Class 3 handicap chase.

“Tip of the Day” – Cellar Vie – 3.35pm Carlisle

James Ewarts’s lightly-raced hurdler has shown improved form since undergoing a wind op last September and should follow up his Ayr victory of last month providing the gelding’s tendency to jump to the right does not prove too costly.

Frimeur De Lancray (Next Best) – 3.00pm Carlisle

The Rebecca Menzies-trained Scottish Accent ran out an easy winner at Kelso last month and a similar effort would make the nine-year-old hard to beat here off a mark just 4lb higher. The mount of Nathan Moscrop is far from guaranteed to repeat that performance however whereas the two horses at the top of the weights, Frimeur De Lancray and Crack Du Ninian, have more scope than most of their rivals and look the pair to concentrate on.

The latter has won two of his five chase starters to date for trainer Jennie Candlish and is yet to finish out of the frame. The major doubt surrounding the seven-year-old however is the gelding’s ability to handle this very testing ground as his four previous runs on heavy ground resulted in comprehensive defeats.

On the other hand, Frimeur De Lancray from the Sue Smith stable has been at his best with plenty of cut in the ground, as when winning over hurdles at Catterick last January. The mount of 5lb claimer Thomas Willmott has taken his time to adapt to the bigger obstacles but on his third run over fences lost out by just a nose at Catterick in December.

The son of Saddler Maker had little chance at the weights when falling on his next start in an above-average novices’ limited handicap chase at Haydock before putting up a good effort to finish fourth in the Wetherby fog last month.

That 3m trip may have tested the stamina of the seven-year-old who should appreciate this half a mile less to travel.

Cellar Vie (NAP) – 3.35pm Carlisle

Since undergoing wind surgery last September, the James Ewart-trained Cellar Vie has produced a couple of much-improved performances in finishing third over this course and distance in October before making all of the running to open his account at Ayr last month.

The mount of regular 7lb claiming rider Alan Doyle looks more than capable of following-up off what may prove to be a lenient mark of 101 and with the ability to handle this heavy ground.

The one negative surrounding the grey son of Tikkanen is the fault of jumping markedly to his right, a trait which is somewhat negated on this left-handed track, especially if his jockey can obtain an early position on the rails.

The other horse to consider is the lightly-raced Monsieur Pom Pom on the four-year-old’s handicap debut.

Glittering Love (Longshot) – 4.05pm Carlisle

This extended 3m trip is going to take plenty of getting on the forecast heavy ground, conditions which may not prove ideal for the hat-trick-seeking favourite Bavington Bob.

Brian Hughes’ mount did win on soft ground at Newcastle last time but this will be a more severe test of the seven-year-old’s stamina and is passed over in favour of the Nicky Richards-trained Glittering Love, who is at his best with a slog in the mud.

The 10-year-old won here over an extra furlong and a half back in December and off a mark just 2lb higher is fancied to outstay his eight rivals in the hands of jockey Callum Bewley. Southern raider Equus Dreamer and the strong-travelling Up Helly Aa King are the other two to consider.
