3.00pm Worcester tips for Tuesday’s Class 4 race. The penultimate race of Worcester’s card is a 2m 4f Handicap Hurdle, with a field of ten going to post. Read on for our free betting tips, predictions and analysis.
IN SUMMARY: Plenty of interesting types here including both Rainy Day Dylan and Blazon, but ready preference is for CAMRON DE CHAILLAC. Although still a maiden, he ran a good race at Plumpton two starts ago behind a horse who followed up twice since. He’s now a pound lower and remains with potential, so a big run is on the cards and he can get off the mark under seven pound claimer Robert Hawker.
1 BURROWS LANE – Won a Maiden at Uttoxeter in July but he doesn’t seem to be progressing, only able to muster up fifth at over course and distance on his latest start. He’s on two pounds lower here and others make more appeal.
2 FLEMCARA – Only three hurdling runs thus far but he looks to have gone backwards, well beaten at Wincanton on his seasonal debut. He has plenty to prove on the back of that and despite Patrick Cowley taking off seven on handicap debut, others are readily preferred.
3 BLAZON – Improved through his Novice runs for Kim Bailey, running a good race at Stratford earlier this month. He looks sure to benefit from this step up in distance and with his opening mark not overly harsh, he shouldn’t be far away.
4 RAINY DAY DYLAN – Won a bumper out in Ireland and he’s not been disgraced in four hurdling runs for Neil Mulholland. He was beaten a fair way when last seen but is now back up in trip for his handicap debut, so he shouldn’t be discounted.
5 SCRUPULEUX – Didn’t achieve much out in France for the Betran De Balanda team and he made a very quiet debut for Chris Down when last seen, pulled up at Wincanton. He has plenty to prove on the back of that and others are readily preferred.
6 CAMRON DE CHAILLAC – Eight race maiden who ran a good race to finish second at Plumpton in February, now down to a realistic mark. He remains with potential and he’ll be much happier back up in distance. He’ll be fresher for the break and can break his maiden at the ninth attempt.
7 CUP OF AMBITION – Pulled up the last twice for Martin Keighley, weakening tamely on his seasonal debut at Exeter in October. He has plenty to prove considering how poor he’s been and although the cheekpieces make him interesting, he’s hard to recommend.
8 GOODGIRLTERESA – Only three runs over hurdles thus far for this seven year old mare who has hinted at ability, but her form is nothing out of the ordinary. She makes her handicap debut off a realistic mark but others are far more interesting.
9 PHOENIX DAWN – Second to a very useful recruit at Ludlow in October, finishing thirteen lengths clear of the third on that occasion. He remains with potential in this sphere and has looked progressive, not badly treated on handicap debut. Shouldn’t be far away.
10 GOODNIGHTRIENE – No wins from seven rules starts and her last two runs have been very poor, pulled up on debut for this yard in June. She was 66/1 that day and she makes very limited appeal again, despite the handicapper dropping her eight pounds.
