Alan Kelly’s Horse Racing Tips for Saturday 26th November

Horse racing tips for all eight races covered by ITV3 on Saturday afternoon from the meetings at Newbury and Newcastle.


A cracking afternoon of national hunt action is in store this Saturday afternoon, for which ITV3 will be covering five races from Newbury and three from Newcastle.

We have tips for all eight races, including Newbury’s Coral Gold Cup, established in 1957 as the Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup and run under that famous banner until 2016.


“Tip of the Day” - L’Homme Presse (3.25pm Newcastle) - 6/4 with William Hill

Venetia Williams’ leading novice of last season can lay down his Gold Cup claims by conceding weight to his eight rivals in this Premier Handicap.

1.20pm Newbury, 2m 6 1/2f - Mister Coffey (Each Way)

A tight handicap chase in which all 13 runners are covered by only 12lb. Joint top weight MISTER COFFEY (e.w.) has yet to open his account over fences in five attempts but it can only be a matter of time before the Nicky Henderson-trained seven-year-old lands a decent handicap over fences.

The mount of James Bowen posted some excellent efforts over hurdles, including when fourth in an ultra-competitive Grade 3 handicap hurdle at Aintree’s Grand National meeting last year. The Authorized gelding’s best effort to date over fences was when beating all bar winner Chambard in the Kim Muir at the Cheltenham Festival back in March.

Mister Coffey failed to cope with Aintree’s big fences in the Topham Chase on his most recent start. But a repeat of his Cheltenham run would make him hard to beat in this company.

1.35pm Newcastle, 2m 7 1/2f - Shantou Lucky

While the Ben Pauling stable are in fine form at the moment, the combination of top weight, no experience over fences and an absence of 22 months to overcome, poses too many negatives about his Malinello in this five-runner novices’ limited handicap chase.

Gavin Cromwell’s Irish raider SHANTOU LUCKY has already had four runs over fences, recording a victory in a 14-runner beginners chase at Clonmel in March along with a couple of decent placed efforts. The five-year-old should strip fitter for his Fairyhouse fourth of last month and looks the one to beat.

1.55pm Newbury, 2m 4 1/2f - Walking On Air (Next Best)

Making his debut in a handicap off a mark of 132, Nicky Henderson’s lightly-raced WALKING ON AIR looked a potentially top notch hurdler when running out an impressive winner on today’s course back in January, the gelding’s first start over the smaller obstacles.

On the back of that 13 length victory, the five-year-old was a strongly fancied 9/2 chance to win a Grade 1 contest at Aintree’s Grand National meeting, only to lose all chance with a poor round of jumping. It is far too early to write off the hugely promising son of Walk In The Park who looks the ideal type for a race such as the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury next February.

2.10pm Newcastle, 2m - Epatante (Each Way)

Providing the front-running Not So Sleepy, third in the Cesarewitch on his most recent start, is on his best behaviour, this should be a truly-run affair in which Champion Hurdle favourite Constitution Hill will be expected to enhance his already lofty reputation.

On his first run of the season and having to concede 7lb to previous dual winner and stablemate EPATANTE, the long odds-on market leader may not have things all his own way. At worst Epatante should finish second, so at around 9/2 Aidan Coleman’s mount has to be the each-way bet.


2.30pm Newbury, 2m 1/2f - Parisencore (Each Way)

The Nicky Richards-trained PARISENCORE (e.w.) makes the long journey from Greystoke in Cumbria to contest this handicap hurdle, more commonly known as the Gerry Feilden, and the northern challenger could well have been underestimated at a double-figure price.

The mount of Callum Bewley has yet to finish out of the first two in eight runs over hurdles, recording victories at Haydock, Perth and Wetherby. Despite winning by just a neck on his most recent start, the six-year-old was value for more and off a mark of 126 can surprise some better fancied southern rivals.

3.05pm Newbury, 3m 2f - Annsam (Each Way)

Not the greatest renewal of this famous handicap which is expected to be run on good ground. As was the case with the victory of Cloth Cap in 2020 under similar conditions, it can be hard for hold-ups horses to get competitive, especially those towards the top of the weights.

With that in mind, the lightly weighted ANNSAM (e.w.) makes plenty of each-way appeal from the Evan Williams stable. The mount of Adam Wedge has always looked the type to win a decent handicap and if in the same kind of form as when winning Ascot’s valuable Listed Silver Cup Handicap Chase last December off a 3lb lower mark, can prove excellent value at around 20/1.

3.25pm Newcastle, 2m 7 1/2f - L’Homme Presse (Nap)

If Venetia Williams’ Cheltenham Gold Cup hopeful L’HOMME PRESSE is going to prove a match for the likes of Galopin Des Champs, A Plus Tard and Protektorat come next March, the talented novice of last season should be up to conceding the weight to his eight rivals in this Premier Handicap, even allowing for the fact that the mount of Charlie Deutsch is bound to come on for the run.

The seven-year-old will be giving the fitter Into Overdrive, successful on his last four starts, a massive 26lb. Mark Walford’s charge looks the main danger to L’Homme Presse who is expected to enhance his Gold Cup ambitions with a victory on his seasonal reappearance.

3.40pm Newbury, 2m 1/2f - Only Money (Each Way)

An easy winner at Cheltenham earlier in the month, the Joe Tizzard-trained Amarillo Sky has a good chance of following up off a 4lb higher mark. However, having been priced up at around 6/4 the six-year-old represents little in the way of value.

Trainer Chris Gordon has been doing well at the big Saturday meetings so far this season and in receipt of 21lb from the market leader, his ONLY MONEY (e.w.) can provide the stable with another victory by taking this £40,000 two mile handicap chase.

Tom Cannon’s mount won his first two races of the present campaign with little trouble, at Plumpton and Worcester, before finishing third at Aintree on soft ground. This forecast good going will suit the eight-year-old much better (all five wins have come on good or good to soft), giving the selection every chance of recording win number three of the season.
