“33/1 doesn’t make sense to me” – Owen’s Outsider tip for the Tolworth Hurdle

Mack The Man wins at Sandown under Adam Wedge

The first Grade 1 of the year, the Tolworth Hurdle has been won by some very useful horses in recent years. L’Ami Serge, Yorkhill, Summerville Boy and Fiddlerontheroof are all examples of past scorers, which shows you the calibre of horse required.

The 2021 renewal bids to showcase another star. Metier is defending an unbeaten record for Harry Fry, while Galice Macalo and Do Your Job have run to useful standards.

We’ll have horse racing tips for all the weekends action, but I’ve found a horse in the Tolworth market who looks extremely overpriced. You can find out all of his details below!


Laying the Tiles of success!

A bumper winner for Jimmy Frost, TILE TAPPER has run just twice in the care of Chris Honour. The Devonshire based trainer has a select operation and this six-year-old looks potentially very useful.

He made his debut for these connections when aimed high in a Class 2 bumper at Cheltenham, finishing a very good third. Sent to Ascot for his hurdling debut, he ran a huge race to finish second in an Introductory Hurdle. Tracking Metier throughout that contest, he showed his inexperience on occasion and was ultimately outpaced in the straight.

There are plenty of positives to take from that performance, however, and Metier had the benefit of experience. He can only improve for that opening effort and this stiffer test will help. Doing all his best work late at Ascot, Sandown’s uphill finish will bring the best out of him.

He does have work to do with Metier, there’s no doubt about that, but 33/1 doesn’t make sense to me. The heavy ground is another positive and if building on his debut, he’s got an excellent chance of out-running his excessive odds.
