Tuesday brings us four meetings to look forward too, with Newcastle, Warwick, Fakenham and Wolverhampton on the menu. We’ll have horse racing tips for all the action, including a NAP of the Day and Accumulator tips!
I’ll be focusing on the bigger-priced runners. More specifically, those who should be much shorter, in my opinion! Competition breeds value and there’s plenty to be had tomorrow, with several big prices catching my eye. I’ve settled on a pair of horses and you can find my 675-1 Warwick double below!
3.25 Fakenham – Dream Du Grand Val (25-1)
There are only a pair of places on offer in this contest, but Dream Du Grand Val is too well-treated to ignore, even with the poor place terms. He was formerly trained by Nicky Henderson where he made into a useful performer, winning a Class 3 handicap by ten lengths back in January 2019 off a mark of 125.
He was making his stable debut for Andy Irvine on the back of a 397-day absence at Market Rasen in February, so it’s easy to forgive that run. His next start came in a claiming hurdle which, despite the grade, was very competitive and the top two were horses rated 125 and 132. Pulling too hard early and jumping poorly, he only weakened at two-out after a bad mistake.
On his third start after the aforementioned absence, he should be just right now in terms of fitness. The handicapper has dropped him to a mark of 117, which is very generous, and he’s won off eight pounds higher in the past. This isn’t the strongest contest on paper and if he can keep his mistakes to a minimum, he’s entitled to be bang there under James Davies.
5.50 Warwick – In Our Dreams (25-1)
If you’re simply looking at the distances, In Our Dreams was beaten twenty-six lengths on debut and should be dismissed in this line-up. That margin doesn’t tell anything like the full story, however, with the winner of that course and distance bumper quickening away by seventeen lengths. If we disregard the potentially top-class winner, his run was far better than the bare result.
The third from that bumper has subsequently run well over hurdles and today’s better surface should suit Alistair Ralph’s charge. Although the yard is infrequent in terms of bumper winners, Flying Demon ran well behind Jonbon on Saturday at a price. In fact, Ralph has sent out three winners and two seconds from his last eight runners.
He’ll need to improve from that debut to threaten, but that progression should be on the cards. Facing a weaker field today, he can out-run his lucrative odds under three-pound claimer Alex Edwards.
