Monday’s racing comes from Carlisle, Fontwell and Wolverhampton. It’s not quite the Dublin Racing Festival, where we’ve seen horse racing’s giants battle it out, but I think we all need a small rest after such a magical weekend. We’ll have horse racing tips for all the action, including a NAP of the Day and Lucky 15 tips.
One trainer who is enjoyed a strong period is Anthony Honeyball. The Dorset-based trainer has won with four of his last eight runners and has four very strong chances on Monday. They form a 24-1 accumulator and you can find all the details below, including our analysis of his runners.
His first chance is in the opener and Serious Charges is likely to go off a very short price. That’s no surprise, as he made a winning hurdling debut at Exeter last month, making all in very comfortable fashion. That wasn’t the toughest race, and he now has a penalty to carry, but he’s totally unexposed and he possesses the best form in the line-up.
Honeyball has a pair of chances in this contest, but Captain Claude looks to the best strongest of his duo. He posted a pair of fair efforts in his opening bumper runs, improving significantly for softer ground when making it third-time lucky at Ffos Las last month. He should certainly improve for the switch to hurdling and those with hurdling experience don’t set a daunting standard, which gives him excellent claims.
The penultimate race sees Lilith bid to get off the mark under rules for Honeyball, and it’d be disappointing if she didn’t at least go close. She arrives on the back of two second-place finishes, latterly at Wincanton where she was beaten just a length, pulling 38 lengths clear with the eventual winner.
A three-pound for that performance isn’t harsh, given how far they pulled clear, and she remains unexposed over this staying trip. She goes well on softer surfaces and with plenty of question marks surrounding many of these rivals, she can surely play a big role under Rex Dingle.
