14:20 Cheltenham Betting Tips

Go Another One EW: Tipped @ 11/1

 

John McConnell has a fantastic record at Cheltenham especially at these smaller meetings pre Christmas. Using Sean Bowen he’s 9/24 38% and from those 24 runners, a huge 17 finished in the first three. Go Another One also has a very strong course record, at this meeting he’s finished 2nd in the 2m5f novice hurdle and 3rd in a very good novice chase over 2m4f.

Last season he was aimed at the Kim Muir and he ran a fantastic race, he travelled powerfully through the race and made up headway down the far side quite easily. However a bad mistake 3 out knocked the stuffing out of him and turning in he just tired late. 

His form has continued to stay strong during the summer winning over hurdles at Cork and back over fences at Perth on his most recent run. McConnell targets these types of horses at the early meetings with their fitness advantage and perhaps most yards not having their horses fully ready. There’s plenty of pace on paper in this race which could set it up for Go Another One who likes to track the field and slowly warm himself up during the race.

The Hollow Ginge EW: Tipped @ 14/1

Nigel Twiston-Davies is a trainer who does target this meeting and The Hollow Ginge is my second selection in this race. Cogry ran in this race every year from 2016 to 2020, placing in the race twice and winning it in 2017, most years he would make the running at a frantic pace and get everything else in trouble with his jumping. The Hollow Ginge is a similar type of horse for the team but he’s gone off the boil over his last few runs.

The yard have been suffering a huge quiet spell, from April to September they had just 11 winners from 171 runners, a poor 6% strike rate. However, in October alone they are 7/26 27% and having plenty of their horses return to form this month.

The Hollow Ginge could definitely be one of them horses, he was 2nd off 137 in a good Aintree Handicap and then he made all when winning at Leicester off 140. Since then his form has nosedived with form figures of PU4UPP but this is an easier race than what he’s been running in. Those races include the National Hunt Chase, the Ladbrokes Trophy, The Welsh National, the Warwick Classic and the Scottish National. 

He’s dropped from 144 down to 137 in the weights but considering he’s previously won off 140, that handicap mark could be lenient. His most impressive victory, at Leicester, he made all of the running at a fast pace and I’m hoping a return to them tactics will help.

Sam Twiston-Davies knows how to win this, having made all with Cogry and he’s 3/9 when partnering The Hollow Ginge. He’s failed to dominant in those Nationals and high class handicaps but the yard weren’t firing and he was probably a touch high in the handicap. I believe they’ll try to make all on him tomorrow given the history of the race being suited to front runners and the horses career best dame when doing that too. 

15:54 Kelso Betting Tips

Curramore win: Tipped @ 11/4

 

Curramore looked a hurdler going places when he won at Carlisle for Lucy Normile but after his form went off the boil a little he made the switch to Sandy Thomson. 

Now he has been a beaten favourite on both his runs for his new yard and in fact, he’s traded odds on in running on both of those runs but has ended up well beaten. His first run for Thomson came over 2m4f at Newcastle and he travelled all over the field, kicked 3 lengths clear and looked a certain winner but emptied badly and finished 3rd. 

Dropped down in trip to 2m next time out, he was sent off a heavy 11/10 favourite given how well he travelled at Newcastle. The race was very similar, he moved easily throughout the race and looked the most likely winner up to two out but then somehow ended up finishing 4th beaten 19 lengths. He’s now had a wind operation which seems to be the huge reason why he’s been unable to finish his races off. 

He’s clearly a horse who works better than his handicap mark as he’s been very strong in the market on both his runs but it seems breathing issues have stopped him fulfilling that ability, if the wind op has worked then he could be in a very dangerous mark and this is a much weaker race this his two for the yard so far.

16:50 Newbury Betting Tips

Royal Marine EW: Tipped @ 18/1

 

It’s very interesting that Royal Marine rocks up here after an eyecatching effort in the Cambridgeshire, which was won by stablemate Bedouins Story abs ridden by Jamie Spencer. That took Spencer’s record for trainer Saeed Bin Suroor to 2/2 100% over the last five years. All time their record combined is 24/96 25% showing a profit of £564.30 to £10 stakes. He clearly knows what horses would suit Spencer’s style of riding and Bedouins Story was a perfect example.

Royal Marine is a very similar type in my opinion and benefits from a quiet ride where he can switch off early in his races. Newbury looks to be pretty testing ground but he’s won on soft ground before and his sire Ravens Pass does produce horses who enjoy heavy ground.

The key to this horse is getting him switched off as he can be quite keen and the perfect jockey for that type of horse is Jamie Spencer. He produced Bedouins Story to perfection in the Cambridgeshire and he’s been a very tricky horse previously who had a lot of talent but was difficult to relax, just like Royal Marine.

His best recent run came when given a very patient ride over this course and distance last season when he was only a neck behind Ilaraab. Ilaraab was rated just 90 that day but he’s since won two more handicaps and he’s now rated 110, 20lb higher than when he beat Royal Marine who’s only 2lb higher himself.

If he improves off that Cambridgeshire run and Spencer gets him switched off then he could be going close at a huge price here especially given the course and distance run here last year.
