Sunday's Horse Racing Betting Tips & Predictions - 18th October

Starts: 11:15 on 18 October 2020



There are five race meetings on Sunday with Listed racing over jumps and on the Flat from Britain and Ireland.

It kicks off over jumps at Ffos Las (13.00-16.55) before more National Hunt fare from Kempton (13.15-16.43), Sedgefield (14.15-17.40) and Cork (13.35-17.30). Flat racing meanwhile comes from Naas (13.25-17.20).

Sunday's Horse Racing Predictions

There are 38 races on a busy afternoon and Sunday's horse racing prediction has pinpointed three selections to follow.

14:22 Kempton

Fidelio Vallis to Win and Each-Way - BET NOW

A Listed Novices' Hurdle on the card as jumps racing returns to Kempton for the first time this season and one in which Paul Nicholls and Harry Cobden can continue their recent rich vein of form.

This race sets up nicely for Fidelio Vallis, a French import that was really starting to get the hang of things when winning at Wincanton and over this C&D in the spring. Having had a tired fall on heavy ground at Chepstow in January, his hurdling really improved in those two wins and that will be a valuable attribute today.

He can likely follow around what should be a good pace as both For Pleasure and Mrs Hyde are confirmed frontrunners. The former is in super form and will relish this test but there's a worry that the presence of Brian Ellison's mare can prove detrimental in his quest for a four-timer if they take each other on up front. 

With the Ditcheat team operating at close to a 41 per-cent strike-rate lately and Nicholls' horses routinely stripping fit and ready for action, Fidelio Vallis can take this step up in class in colours that are so well known for the former champion trainer down the years.

15:10 Ffos Las 

Thebannerkingrebel to Win and Each Way - BET NOW

Having proved very useful in bumpers, Thebannerkingrebel won three from his first four starts over hurdles last season for trainer Jamie Snowden, denied only when falling at Wetherby in November when leading at the last.

Those wins all came at around two-miles on ground ranging from good to soft. He was only beaten two-lengths behind Stolen Silver in a Grade 2 Haydock novice contest in January before being well held in the ultra-competitive Betfair Hurdle at Newbury the following month.

He has gone well fresh in the last and returns for his second term over timber having undergone wind surgery. A mark of 141 leaves him with scope for further progress over timber this season and he should make an impact on first start back under Jonjo O'Neill Jr for the first time. 

16:15 Naas

Shamiyna to Win and Each Way - BET NOW

Dermot Weld opts to step up in class with Shamiyna for this Listed Bluebell Stakes over a mile and a half and she looks worthy of it.

The Sea The Stars filly was a decisive winner at Killarney (1m3f, soft) earlier this month despite getting away quite slowly in a four-runner contest. She recovered and eventually had seven-lengths in hand over the 96-rated runner-up Princess Yaiza, despite that rival seemingly having travelled into the race strongly under a confident Colin Keane.

That was a second win on the trot for Shamiyna at the Co Kerry track, both of them achieved with plenty cut in the ground. She'll have conditions to suit again and is capable of further improvement under Oisin Orr.

Barrington Court is the one they all must fear, the mare having taken the switch to Flat racing in her stride for Jessica Harrington. She won at Bellewstown in August and has since finished-best behind Princess Zoe and Dawn Patrol in Listed/Group 3 events at Galway (1m4f, heavy) and the Curragh (2m, yielding). At the forecast prices, the Weld filly is an each-way player.
