611/1 Racing Post Weekender Acca!

Call Me Lord and Mr Antolini jump the final hurdle in the Imperial Cup

The first Saturday fixtures of 2020 are here and we are treated to some top-class action over obstacles and on the all-weather.

Sandown’s Tolworth Novices’ Hurdle tops the bill in our horse racing tips, but we’ve taken a look at the latest edition of the Racing Post Weekender and pulled together a 611/1 acca from their selections.

Delire D’Estruval (1:50 Sandown – Saturday)

Stuart Redding

Delire D’Estruval was eventually well beaten over two miles and three furlongs at Ascot recently, but he chased a strong pace and was still in contention until his lack of a recent run told in the home straight.

The Ben Pauling-trained gelding produced a bold round of jumping when making most in a two-mile and four furlongs handicap chase at this track in March and it would be no surprise to see him strike again off just two pounds higher with fitness fully assured and the yard back among the winners.

Son Of Camas (2:25 Sandown – Saturday)

James Burn

Nicky Henderson had Son Of Camas entered in the Challow at Newbury last week but Sandown’s Unibet Tolworth Novices’ Hurdle on Saturday looks a better slot and the trainer can win it for a fifth time since 2011.

The five-year-old was well regarded at Seven Barrows last season but flopped when fancied for a hot bumper at the Punchestown festival.

However, Henderson’s faith never wavered and he insisted the son of Creachadoir was a class act in the making in his Racing Post stable tour.

That verdict looked a good one when Son Of Camas struck in a Newbury bumper before a polished success back at the track over hurdles.

Nifty At Fifty (2:40 Wincanton – Saturday)

Andrew King

Wincanton have three televised races live by ITV4 on Saturday and Nifty At Fifty looks worth following in the Every Race Live on Racing TV Handicap Hurdle.

Jeremey Scott’s seven-year-old had proved frustrating to say the least before coming good over course and distance last month, despite looking anything but an easy ride with his tendency to hang left in evidence all the way up the home straight.

He still got the win on the board, with rider Bryan Carver doing a sterling job in getting him home.

His errant ways will always be something of a question mark but he obviously has plenty of ability and if that can be channelled into going forward he remains at the right end of the handicap.

Jepeck (3:00 Sandown – Saturday)

Andrew King

Mud-loving Jepeck could prove the answer to the Unibet Veterans’ Handicap Chase 2019 Final as long as ground conditions at Sandown do not dry out too much.

The 11-year-old hasn’t looked back since being switched to the care of Anthony Honeyball and comes into this race on the back of a win over hurdles at Chepstow.

Honeyball has kept Jepeck to hurdling in his three outings so far this season in a bid to protect his mark over fences with this contest in mind and the ploy has seemingly gone to plan.

His handicap mark is now just five pounds higher than his last winning rating over fences and connections will be heading to Esher with confidence fairly high as a result.

Honeyball has 14 winners in the last two months of 2019 at a strike-rate of 26 per cent and Jepeck, who should be suited by the Esher circuit given he is betting racing on a right-handed course, can keep the team on a roll.
