Our tipsters' strongest bets for this meeting

14:10
Dunraven Windows Handicap Hurdle (Div II) (Class 5)
The Manuscript silk

The Manuscript

Analysis

Solid handicap debut on return from a break. Should do better with that under his belt, bred to appreciate this trip

15:55
Smerdon Tree Services Novices' Chase (Class 3)
Vision Des Flos silk

Vision Des Flos

Analysis

Sets the standard on his hurdles form which includes two Grade 1 seconds, likely to improve now going chasing.

16:25
Dunraven Group Welsh Champion Hurdle (A Limited Handicap) (Class 2)
Le Prezien silk

Le Prezien

Analysis

The New One is yet to be beaten on his seasonal debut, winning this race last year. He is rising eleven, however, and this might be the year that he relinquishes that record. Silver Streak looks a handicapper going places, a rise for a Swinton Hurdle win unlikely to stop him but the vote goes to LE PREZIEN who is only a pound higher in this sphere than the mark he won the Grand Annual off in March and was a very smart hurdler back in the day with a Grade 1 second to his name.

16:55
Hammersly Lake Good Luck In America Tonight Handicap Chase (Class 4)
Zamparelli silk

Zamparelli

Analysis

ZAMPARELLI has made a good impression since going handicapping over fences, only doing the bare minimum to get the job done. As such, it’s looking hard for the handicapper to catch up with this strong traveller, with the step up in trip looking a positive. West Wizard is still well in on his old form if he can build on that recent win with Dr Robin another to consider.

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.
