Todays Racing Tip – JAMMY GEORGE
Time & Track – 1.20 Newbury (18/12)
Best Odds – 10/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 0.5pt ew
Analysis – Fell at the first when last seen up at Newcastle at the end of November but he made a satisfactory chase debut at Ascot over a much shorter trip when outpaced before staying on into fifth. That came in a slightly better race than this and the step up to this extended 2m7f trip should suit as he won as he liked over 2m6f over hurdles last season. The application of first-time cheekpieces could be a key factor here if they can help him jumped a little better as he’s still very unexposed and I think he’s capable of winning off a mark of 129, whether it’s here or not is a different matter but with a clear round I’d hope he can play a role.
Result – Placed +0.50
Todays Racing Tip – WICKED WILLY
Time & Track – 2.35 Ludlow (18/12)
Best Odds – 14/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 0.5pt ew
Analysis – There’s a couple in here I like, I tipped Sumkindofking last time but the meeting was abandoned and he should go well but I think the ground might be too soft for him whilst Roll Again has a decent chance but he’ll have to jump a hell of a lot better than the last day. It’s Nigel Twiston Davies’ gelding who gets my vote at a price, who’s back on his last winning mark (over fences) which came at Taunton on soft ground over a similar trip to this at the beginning of last year. He’s got a good record over this trip with give in the ground and takes a drop in class after finishing a well-beaten eighth in the Badger Ales at Wincanton so will need to put that aside but this is an easier assignment and he comes from a yard in good form. All his wins have come on tightish right-handed tracks and if able to show his better form under Sam Twiston-Davies (2/9 on him) then he’s overpriced in my opinion with question marks surrounding others.
Result – Lost
