The Best Horse Racing Tips for Warwick & Ffos Las on Wednesday


The meetings at Warwick, Ffos Las and Hexham stage Wednesday’s jumps action and it is to the Warwickshire and Welsh racecourses we go for today’s Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions.

Warwick stages a fascinating 2m novices’ chase at 1.40pm for which we will supply a Horse Racing tip, together with an ever popular veterans’ chase, run over 3m at 2.50pm. At Ffos Las our Horse Racing tip runs in the extended 2m 3f handicap chase at 2.00pm.

Our Tip for the 1.40pm at Warwick:

Despite a field of only five runners for this novices’ chase, a fascinating contest all the same with four horses achieving hurdle ratings of between 141 and 150. However, in receipt of 8lb from his rivals it is the 135-rated Stepney Causeway who makes most appeal on his debut over the bigger obstacles.

The four-year-old son of New Approach won his last four starts over hurdles last season, the final two by 15 and 19 lengths respectively. Only third on his reappearance at Cheltenham last month, the mount of Harry Skelton looked as though he would come on plenty with that race under his belt.

The trainer/jockey combination of Dan and Harry Skelton enjoyed a great weekend at Cheltenham and the in-form stable is fancied to continue their good run with a horse who should make his mark as a chaser in the months ahead.

The four-year-old is unlikely to have things all his own way however, with Edwardstone, For Pleasure and Elixir De Nutz all potential dangers. Stepney Causeway and For Pleasure are expected to take the field along but with his weight advantage the selection, excellent over his hurdles, should take plenty of pegging back on his chasing debut.

Our Tip for the 2.00pm at Ffos Las:

Having his first run over fences, the Kim Bailey-trained Equus Dreamer could prove better than his hurdle rating of 127, now that the six-year-old begins a career over the bigger obstacles.

Reportedly to have schooled well by his handler, the mount of David Bass was placed in three point to points before joining Bailey and showed plenty of promise in staying novice hurdles last season, winning a three mile one and a half furlong contest at Hereford.

The son of Getaway looks sure to make a better chaser than hurdler and it would be no surprise to see the gelding make a winning debut at the Welsh track before taking on more serious opposition later in the season.

The consistent Nada To Prada, runner-up on her chasing debut last month, can prove the main danger along with the lightly-weighted Ring The Moon.

Our Tip for the 2.50pm at Warwick:

The veteran series of handicap chases are very popular with horse racing enthusiasts, and with plenty of old favourites competing, this 3m contest looks to be no exception.

The 13-year-old top weight Regal Encore showed he can still mix it with the best staying handicappers when finishing third in a valuable contest at Ascot on his reappearance towards the end of last month. While the Sue Smith stable, fresh from their Paddy Power Gold Cup victory with Midnight Shadow, have booked Harry Skelton to partner last season’s Cheltenham Festival Ultima Handicap Chase winner Vintage Clouds.

Cases can be made for many of the runners, including Sir Ivan, Final Nudge and Fagan. But on the basis that he possibly needed his first run of the season at Aintree last month, the value of the race may lie with Minellacelebration, for trainer Katy Price and jockey Ben Poste.

The King’s Theatre gelding has won seven of his 31 starts over fences and off a mark 2lb lower than when running out an easy winner of a veterans’ handicap chase at Aintree 12 months ago, would take plenty of beating if able to produce a similar effort.
