Our tipsters' strongest bets for this meeting

18:00
Velindre Cancer Charity Novices' Handicap Chase (Class 4)
Grania O'Malley silk

Grania O'Malley

Analysis

The mare GRANIA O’MALLEY scored twice over this trip over timber around this time last year and has improved with each of her three runs over fences. Just outstayed last time over two-miles-four when giving nearly two stone to the winner, she makes plenty of appeal dropped back in trip running from the same mark.

18:35
Velindre Cancer Charity Mares' Handicap Chase (Qualifier For Hereford Mares' Handicap Chase Series) (Class 4)
Midnight Folie silk

Midnight Folie

Analysis

MIDNIGHT FOLIE has been in inspired form between the flags in recent times, winning her last five starts in quick succession. Admittedly she hasn’t beaten too much, however this is hardly the strongest of contests. Back racing under rules for a new yard, seven pounds lower than when placing on chase debut in 2016, she can go in again here.

19:10
Velindre Cancer Charity Handicap Chase (Class 4)

Greatly improved in first time pieces on a soft surface last time, ZOLFO remains well treated raised just two pounds for that win. This longer trip poses no problems, having scored over two-miles-four at Bangor last year, and if backing up that latest effort he’d be hard to beat.

20:10
Velindre Charity Handicap Hurdle (Class 3)
Sizing At Midnight silk

Sizing At Midnight

Analysis

SIZING AT MIDNIGHT improved for a step up to two-miles-six, staying on strongly to score here last month. He followed that with a facile victory at Newton Abbot. Over an extra two furlongs for which he is sure to improve, he can defy a combined nineteen pound rise and complete a hat trick here.

20:40
Velindre Fundraising Handicap Hurdle (Class 4)
Sizing Tara silk

Sizing Tara

Analysis

A really weak contest in which SIZING TARA appeals the most. Back from a break with a career best effort when placing behind one rated 115, he should prove hard to beat if progressing from that now race fit, starting life in handicap company from a very lowly level.

21:10
Velindre Cancer Charity Handicap Hurdle (Class 4)
Blue N Yellow silk

Blue N Yellow

Analysis

BLUE N YELLOW has improved since sent handicapping at a lowly level, scoring at Exeter over two-miles-two before placing over two-miles-six off this mark last time when headed late on. A half brother to a winner on soft, the ground poses no issues for this progressive six year old.

Tips for Ffos Las Races

Built on the site of an old open cast coal mine near Llanelli in South Wales, Ffos Las racecourse is one of three courses in Wales. Only opened in 2009, it is the most modern National Hunt course in the UK. It now hosts a number of both Flat and National Hunt meetings each year.

Course: The course for both jumps and flat races is a one mile, four furlong left handed oval, with two relatively easy bends. A chute on the home straight allows for a straight run in for five and six furlong races. Our Ffos Las tips tend to look for galloping types, as the nature of the course allows them time to get into stride and maintain their speed round the bends.

In the past, Ffos Las was perhaps most famous for it’s boggy going, with heavy rain leading to extremely tough going. The West Wales National in 2015 saw just two of ten horses finish, with the winner (Bob’s Ford) finishing a full 99 lengths clear of the only other finisher, who was nearly pulled up. Drainage work in 2015 has largely fixed this issue, although following extreme weather it can still become very heavy.

Draw Bias: The wide, flat track both contribute to a fair course meaning no draw bias for our tips to consider.

Feature Race: The main race of the year is the grandly named “Welsh Champion Hurdle”, run over two miles in October. Previously removed from the horse racing calendar in 2003 due to a lack of entries, Ffos Las revived the race as a Limited Handicap before a temporary attempt at increasing the distance.

Recent winners include Cheltenham Festival stalwart The New One and the well known Garde La Victoire, winner of multiple Class 1 races.
