Lovers of both Flat and Jump racing have plenty to look forward to this week culminating in Newbury’s Guineas trials along with the Scottish Grand National at Ayr this weekend. On Wednesday, Newmarket and Cheltenham provide the best action from both codes.
We will supply Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions for two races from headquarters, the 6f Weatherbys Handicap at 1.50pm and the Group 3 Nell Gwyn Stakes at 3.35pm. While at Prestbury Park we will provide a Horse Racing tip for the Grade 2 Silver Trophy Handicap Chase at 2.05pm.
Our Tip for the 1.50pm at Newmarket:
Several of these have a fitness advantage following a spell on the all-weather earlier in the year including likely favourite Going Places. The mount of Hollie Doyle has won two of his three starts this year and should go close if able to transfer that form to turf.
However, providing the five-year-old is straight enough on her first run of the season, the Andrew Balding-trained Chil Chil is fancied to make a winning reappearance under champion jockey Oisin Murphy.
The daughter of Exceed And Excel won three of her last four starts of 2019 and looked a sprinter to follow when winning impressively at Ascot last August. While the mare failed to fulfil that promise during the autumn the course and distance winner is more than capable of winning a race of this nature.
Our Tip for the 2.05pm at Cheltenham:
An excellent fourth behind the progressive The Shunter and Grand National fifth Farclas in the Paddy Power Plate at last month’s Cheltenham Festival, course specialist Coole Cody is fancied to add this Grade 2 contest to his Paddy Power Gold Cup victory of earlier in the season.
The 10-year-old seems to reserve his best for Prestbury Park, winning a competitive handicap hurdle there in 2017 when trained by Michael Blake. Since joining current handler Evan Williams the gelding, along with winning that valuable handicap chase, finished a fine second in a novice chase last October and an honourable sixth in December’s Caspian Caviar Gold Cup.
The son of Dubai Destination runs off the same mark of 143 as at the Cheltenham Festival and in what is a much easier race should take plenty of beating. The main danger looks to be the consistent The Big Bite for trainer Henry Oliver.
Our Tip for the 3.55pm at Newmarket:
Whether this 1000 Guineas trial has any bearing on the outcome of next month’s Newmarket Classic only time will tell. The unbeaten trio of Saffron Beach, Love Is You and Divine Light are all respected, in particular the Jane Chapple-Hyam filly who won the Group 3 Oh So Sharp Stakes on her final start as a juvenile.
Despite finishing last of eight in the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes on her most recent start, the William Haggas-trained Sacred had previously looked a high-class filly and may have been over the top when contesting that Newmarket contest.
The daughter of Exceed And Excel is better judged on her narrow defeats in Royal Ascot’s Queen Mary Stakes, the Lowther Stakes at York and Flying Childers Stakes at Doncaster. Ryan Moore rides the filly for the first time who can enhance her 1000 Guineas chances at Newmarket, for which she is currently a 50/1 shot with bet365.
