Friday Exeter Horse Racing Tips

2:35 Exeter Tips

3m6½f (3m6f153y) Millie, Mo And Meggan Birthday Handicap Chase (Class 3) (4yo+ 0-125) 

Shakem Up’Arry – 3pt Win – 3/1 (BetVictor) 


My first selection today is Shakem Up’Arry in the 2:35 Exeter.  

Shakem Up’Arry was being targeted at the Paddy Power Gold Cup which was a far hotter race than this. However, he was pulled out of the race due to the lack of rain and subsequent good ground.  

I feel that based on his form, he is better than a mark of 134 and the return to this intermediate trip is a plus for him. He now also gets the juice in the ground that he wants with it Good to Soft, Soft in places. 

He has won off a long break before, so the fact this is first time out for him would not concern me.  

As highlighted before, I think Luca Morgan is a great jockey and excellent value for his claim. He is also 1/1 on the horse and 3-10 (30%) in the last 14 days.  

The Pauling stable form is also a bonus with the yard operating at 32% (7-22) in the last 14 days.  

I think you can forgive his run last time as that was over 2m and on Good to Soft ground which I feel combined would have made it too sharp for him.  

If you go back to the run before last, he’s finished second to Amarillo Sky over a trip short of his best and giving that winner 2lb. Amarillo Sky was rated 135 that day and is now rated 151. If you take that well treated winner out of the race, he has won it nicely and runs here off 6lb lower (including jockey claim). 

I think he can make amends for missing the Paddy Power Gold Cup here.

3:10 Exeter Tips

3m6½f (3m6f153y) Millie, Mo And Meggan Birthday Handicap Chase (Class 3) (4yo+ 0-125) 

Silver In Disguise – 1pt Each Way - 11/1 (Bet365, 3 places) 


My second selection and final selection comes in the very next race at Exeter, the 3:10.  

Silver In Disguise showed he has stamina in abundance when winning over 3m6½f at Chepstow in March and looked one to keep on side in these marathon races. I think he would have preferred a bit of juice in the ground that day and didn’t get it, so that performance can be marked up a little further too in my opinion.  

His next three races have been over shorter trips and on better ground and he hasn’t been seen to his best albeit running respectably three runs back to only be beaten 2½ lengths off a mark of 119. That subsequently saw him pushed up to a mark of 121.  

He has dropped to a mark of 117 now which is just 4lb higher than his win. He is back up to the 3m6½f trip that he should love and he also gets some juice in the ground, which looks perfect for him.  

They switch back from a visor to cheekpieces here and when he wore cheekpieces for the first time three runs back, he achieved his peak RPR of 126, so that looks to be a bonus here too. 

When a few of these are crying no more, he will be loving every yard of this trip on a galloping track like Exeter and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him coming home strongest of all. I think 11/1 is a lovely price and he has a great each way chance here.


Total Outlay – 5 points.
