Jump racing in Britain on Tuesday afternoon comes from the meetings at Huntingdon and Hereford. We will provide Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions for three races from the Cambridgeshire market town, starting with a 2m handicap hurdle at 1.30pm.
Our other two Horse Racing tips come in divisions one and two of the Racing TV Handicap Hurdle, run over a distance of two mile four and a half furlongs at 2.30pm and 3.00pm.
Our Tip for the 1.30pm at Huntingdon:
Despite a field of only seven runners this two mile handicap hurdle features several promising performers, including Cabot Cliffs and Sage Advice who finished sixth and twelfth respectively in the ‘Fred Winter’ at this year’s Cheltenham Festival.
Ajero landed a hat-trick of victories last season and is better than his reappearance at Ascot recently when pulling up. While the Pam Sly-trained Takeit Easy, a course and distance winner last October, comes here on the back of a comfortable win at Wetherby, the gelding’s first run for four months.
The selection however is Onemorefortheroad from the stable of Neil King, another horse with course and distance form to his name, having won a handicap here back in March by 11 lengths. The mount of Daryl Jacob probably has his ideal conditions here and has been raised only 1lb by the handicapper for a narrow victory over a potential decent horse of Nicky Henderson’s (went off odds-on) at Stratford two weeks ago.
Our Tip for the 2.30pm at Huntingdon:
The lightly-weighted Mr Yeats finally got his head in front over hurdles at the ninth attempt last month and has every chance of following up in this modest Class 5 handicap for in-form trainer Milton Harris.
The four-year-old son of Yeats probably beat very little in that six-runner contest at Wincanton however and is taken on with Billy Ray from the stable of Sam England.
The mount of 7lb claimer Tom Midgley looked sure to win before long over hurdles after beating all bar Dan Skelton’s Embole at Wetherby back in February.
Slightly disappointing in four subsequent starts, until finishing a close third when well supported at Uttoxeter on his most recent outing at Uttoxeter in May, the Sixties Icon gelding ran his best race after a break of three months so this may be the best time to catch the six-year-old, in what looks to be a very weak handicap.
Our Tip for the 3.00pm at Huntingdon:
Top weight Salley Gardens posts strong claims in this extended 2m 4f handicap based on the gelding’s two runs this season. Following a neck victory in a competitive 12-runner contest at Perth in September, the mount of 5lb claimer Katie O’Farrell probably faced an impossible task in trying to give Soul Icon almost two sone on this course last month.
The Olly Murphy-trained runner is greatly respected but from a value perspective it could be worth giving The Rutland Rebel a chance to open his account over the smaller obstacles.
Micky Hammond’s charge has yet to show much over hurdles in five attempts. But if Conor O’Farrell’s mount can translate his excellent second in a staying handicap on the Flat at Pontefract in September, with fellow rival Dynali back in third when receiving 7lb, The Rutland Rebel would have a great chance off a mark of only 86.
