The Best Horse Racing Tips for Exeter & Worcester

The 2021/22 national hunt season is beginning to liven up this weekend with Chepstow’s top quality cards on Friday and Saturday. Thursday’s jumps action may fall a little way short on what is on offer at the Welsh track but it is to the meetings at Exeter and Worcester we go for today’s Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions.

Our first Horse Racing tip comes in the 2.30pm race at Exeter, a Class 3 handicap chase run over 2m 3f. At 3.05pm a 10-runner 2m 1f handicap hurdle provided our second tip of the day, while over at Worcester our final selection runs in the 2m 4f handicap hurdle at 3.23pm.

Our Tip for the 2.30pm at Exeter:

At this time last year the Colin Tizzard-trained Sizing At Midnight looked like a chaser to follow for the rest of the season. Comfortable victories at Newton Abbot and Ffos Las were followed by an excellent second to the now 143-rated Kitty’s Light who was in receipt of almost two stone from the Midnight Legend gelding.

The fact that Sizing At Midnight now runs off a mark of only 116 shows just how well handicapped the nine-year-old could be if the mount of Brendan Powell was to return to something like that kind of form following a spell in the doldrums during the first half of 2021.

On his reappearance at Uttoxeter last month, Sizing At Midnight showed his first glimmer of form for a while in beating all bar the lightly-weighted Palixandre and should take plenty of beating here if running within a stone of what he is capable of on ground that should suit.

Three-time runner-up Golden Taipan and the Dan Skelton-trained Shentri look the two main dangers.

Our Tip for the 3.05pm at Exeter:

Well beaten on his first four starts over hurdles, the Milton Harris-trained Sergeant, following a break of 208 days, has looked a completely different prospect this season in winning two of his three outings, a first flight fall in the other possibly preventing the lightly-raced four-year-old from landing a hat-trick of victories.

While the mount of 3lb claimer Mitchell Bastyan only had half a length to spare over runner-up Spantik at the end of his most recent success at Sedgefield, the gelding was value for much more after idling when cruising into the lead at the final flight of hurdles.

Sergeant runs off the same mark of 84 here, before his revised rating of 92 comes into effect, and barring accidents looks the best bet on the Exeter card. My Poem, sixth behind Sergeant at Sedgefield, can prove best of those at a double-figure price.

Our Tip for the 3.23pm at Worcester:

After showing very little in the way of promise in his first four starts over hurdles, a wind operation seems to have brought about significant improvement in the Mark Bradstock-trained Jakamani who, after finishing second in a handicap at Stratford, made all for a comfortable win at Fontwell on his most recent start.

The ease of that eight and a half length victory was not lost on the handicapper however, as the Sulamani gelding has been raised a full 11lb to a mark of 109. That new rating may not stop the mount of Nico de Boinville from following up however in a race where doubts surround many of the 10 runners.

Jesuitique, a new recruit to the Dr Richard Newland stable, is interesting on his first start for his shrewd handler but a watching brief for the ex French-trained six-year-old is advised on this occasion, leaving the unexposed Admiral Balko as the one to cause Jakamani most problems.
