2.10pm Hexham Tips & Betting Preview 10/11/2017

A staying novices’ handicap chase for a prize of £4,431. Read on for expert analysis and betting tips.

IN SUMMARYISKABEG LANE hasn’t had many starts under rules so is open to progress especially now tackling the larger obstacles so is the selection ahead of Western Jo who couldn’t have won any more easily two starts ago and didn’t run badly last time.

1 TEDDY TEE – Has only run once over the larger obstacles in his career and probably showed his best piece of form to date on that start, hasn’t run for over 200 days so has something to prove on his return but has the talent to get involved.

2 WESTERN JO – Won by a massive thirty-one lengths two starts ago but failed to follow up having been hit with an eighteen pound rise by the handicapper, still ran respectably for third that day and has some potential left, considered.

3 DUBAI DEVILS – Makes debut over fences today having been pulled up when last seen over timber, he was 0-10 in that sphere and has yet to win under rules or in point-to-points, he was running consistently before his last appearance though and is not out of it.

4 CASH AGAIN – Was beaten behind the useful Jenkins once upon a time but has failed to live up to his initial potential and has been largely disappointing throughout his career, has been beaten a long way in both starts for this yard and others are preferred.

5 BITVIEW COLIN – Bounced back from a series of heavy defeats when running away with a handicap hurdle last time out off a mark of 115, he gets in here off 111 which leaves him well-treated if putting in a decent round of jumping and not one to ignore lightly.

6 JUMP FOR DOUGH – Won two starts ago but couldn’t overcome a six pound rise when next seen on a racecourse, he ran decently to manage third that day but runs off a six pound higher mark again today and the switch of yards will have had to made a big difference if he is to be considered for a win bet.

7 RONN THE CONN – Showed some promise in his three novices’ hurdles when finishing second twice, switches to fences now having moved to the Rebecca Menzies yard and the booking of Brian Hughes is a positive; interesting.

8 ISKABEG LANE – A largely unexposed six year old who makes his first start over fences over a longer trip than he has previously been attempting, Sue Smith and Danny Cook have made a good start to the season and could have another winner here.
