Alan Kelly’s Horse Racing Tips for Friday 11th November

Horse racing tips for all four races shown on ITV4 from the opening day of Cheltenham’s three-day meeting on Friday afternoon.

The 2022/23 jump season gets into full swing this weekend with Cheltenham’s three-day November Paddy Power Gold Cup meeting along with some informative action on the other side of the Irish sea.

ITV4 cameras will cover races two to five from Prestbury Park on Friday afternoon where the going is currently described as good to soft and we have tips for all four contests.

“Tip of the Day” - The Glancing Queen (1.45pm Cheltenham) - 3/1 with Ladbrokes

Alan King’s top weight is fancied to outclass her rivals in this two mile handicap chase with conditions looking to be ideal for the talented mare.

1.45pm Cheltenham, 2m - The Glancing Queen (Nap)

Alan King’s THE GLANCING QUEEN is fancied to defy top weight in this Class 2 two mile handicap chase. The mount of Tom Cannon is probably at her best around the minimum trip, as the talented mare looked a danger to all turning for home in the extended 2m 4f Craft Irish Whiskey Co. Plate Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival only for her finishing effort to flatten out over the last two fences.

Runner-up to the exciting L’Homme Presse, again at Cheltenham over the same trip prior to her festival run, the daughter of Jeremy won all three of her other starts over fences, recording victories at Bangor, Warwick and on the mares’ most recent outing, a comfortable win on Cheltenham’s New course back in April.

The Glancing Queen looks better class than her eight rivals, the best of which may be Grey Diamond from the in-form stable of Sam Thomas.

2.20pm Cheltenham, 2m 4f - Hereditary Rule

The John McConnell-trained HEREDITARY RULE, one of two Irish challengers for this novices’ limited handicap chase, looks the safest option as the mount of Daryl Jacob is sure to go well in a race where most of his rivals lack much in the way of experience over fences.

The other Irish-trained runner, Railway Hurricane, is one exception but Gavin Cromwell’s charge has yet to get his head in front following 14 runs over the bigger obstacles, while Hereditary Rule is 3 from 6 as a chaser and most recently recorded a first victory over hurdles in a 15-runner Downpatrick handicap two months ago.

The Chris Gordon-trained Unanswered Prayers makes his chasing debut and would prove a danger to all if taking to fences for a stable in decent form.

2.55pm Cheltenham, 2m 4f - Elegant Escape (Each Way) (Longshot)

Now running off a mark some 17lb lower than when finishing third in Newbury’s Ladbrokes Trophy three years ago, top weight ELEGANT ESCAPE (e.w.) will be racing over this trip of 2m 4f for the first time over fences, the 10-year-old being better known for his exploits in staying handicap chases.

The mount of Brendan Powell ended last season with a victory in a 3m veterans chase at Ascot, making much of the running before staying on best of all. While this trip may appear on the sharp side for Joe Tizzard’s runner, the Cheltenham course will play to his strengths and the son of Dubai Destination can prove the value bet of the race.

Ballyandy has proved a loyal servant for the Twiston-Davies stable over the years but has a better record over hurdles, the gelding only chasing victory coming at Perth five years ago when winning a four-horse affair. A bigger danger to the top weight may come in the shape of Kauto Riko, a horse with several decent efforts at Prestbury Park and the services of champion jockey Brian Hughes in the saddle.

3.30pm Cheltenham, 2m 5f - Hubrisko

The betting is likely to be the best guide to the outcome of this Grade 2 novices’ hurdle featuring a field of seven runners, all boasting plenty of potential over the smaller obstacles. Four of the five British-trained contenders all won last time out but I think the stronger form may be that of the two two Irish runners, HUBRISKO and Music Drive.

The latter finished third when well fancied here last month and Gordon Elliott’s charge would have finished closer but for a mistake at the final hurdle. But preference is for the Willie Mullins-trained Hubrisko who sets the standard based on the gelding’s third behind highly-regarded stablemate Champ Kiely and Brazil, winner of the Fred Winter at the Cheltenham Festival, in a Grade 3 novice hurdle at Tipperary last month.
