Todays Racing Tip – DU SOLEIL
Time & Track – 2.10 Carlisle (18/10)
Best Odds – 7/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – Ended last campaign with a couple of below-par efforts over 2m4f when hurdling but had previously shown ability over 2m when winning a novice hurdle before finishing a close 2nd to the subsequent Imperial Cup winner, Mr Antolini. This gelding has been dropped back to 2m for his chase debut for a trainer who does well with those over the larger obstacles and his opening chase mark is only a pound higher than for that length-and-three-quarter defeat over timber at Leicester so on that evidence should go close if warming to this new discipline.
Result – Lost
Todays Racing Tip – LOOKSNOWTLIKEBRIAN
Time & Track – 3.45 Carlisle (18/10)
Best Odds – 7/1 @ Ladbrokes
Stake – 2pt win
Analysis – This seven-year old is 2/4 since going chasing, winning both times over 2m5f and this first try at the bare 3m should suit having gone close over further on chase debut. He made a few mistakes when last seen but has had a summer on his back and if those blemishes have been ironed out he’s got the potential to go well. Tim Vaughan has a 39% strike-rate at this course and the champ Richard Johnson is doing the steering so with a clear round of jumping he should be right there on ground that will suit.
Result – Won + 12.60
