The November Meeting has been and gone and now attention turns to Haydock and Ascot on Saturday. Bristol De Mai is bidding for a hat trick of wins in the Betfair Chase whilst Altior and Cyrname are set to clash in the 1965 Chase.
To build up to a mouthwatering weekend of racing, here’s a treble formed of three runners whose trainers thrive at specific venues. Be sure to make use of all our tips and analysis in the build up to Saturday’s action, including our NAP Of The Day, the last six of which have won!
The Buckinghamshire based Phil Middleton landed the Big Bucks Handicap Hurdle on Saturday with Golan Fortune. Fresh off the back of one of his biggest wins to date, he sends his Skeaping to Fakenham.
The yard have sent five runners to the track over the past year, with two of these returning home with the spoils. His six-year-old scored over two-miles here in October before backing that up with success at Stratford.
He subsequently finished third in what look a competitive race for the grade at the latter venue. Facing just three other rivals today, he looks sure to go close under the amateur Sam Lee who rode his stablemate to success at Cheltenham a few days ago.
John Gosden has had a remarkable eighty-four winners at Kempton over the past five years. Only Archie Watson has sent out more winners there in 2019, with the stable operating at 32% at the track this year.
His Teofilo colt Good Tidings won back to back novice events on the All-Weather before going down by a neck over course and distance. He meets the winner on a pound better terms and connections reach for a first time visor today.
Having raced just four times, he’s open to plenty of further improvement. An each way price greatly underestimates his claims for a yard who had four winners from five runners on Saturday!
Godolphin have enjoyed plenty of success on the All-Weather in recent years, with Saeed bin Suroor saddling fifty five winners from just 182 runners at Chelmsford since 2015.
Down the field in three turf events in August, his Good Reason improved exponentially for a switch to the All-Weather on handicap debut. The daughter of Dark Angel bolted up over course and distance, scoring by nearly four lengths despite giving weight to nearly the whole field.
The handicapper has whacked her with a massive twelve pound rise in the weights. She is completely unexposed in handicaps and on the All-Weather however, and the talented Gabriele Malune claims a valuable three. The sole runner on the card for her yard, another huge run has to be anticipated.
The treble can be backed at 40/1, best priced at time of writing.
