Pamela And Joe Christer Diamond Wedding Handicap Chase (Class 5)
Alto Des Mottes silk

Alto Des Mottes

Analysis
10/1

Robin Deuz Pois and Shaiyzar arrive here in good form, but both are still maidens over fences. With that in mind, a chance is taken on ALTO DES MOTTES. Henry Hogarth’s charge is not the most reliable, but his best run this season came when encountering fast ground, so these conditions will suit, and he arrives here thirty-nine-pound below his last winning mark.

Ingleby Hollow silk

Ingleby Hollow

Analysis
5/4

The two to focus on are the last time out course and distance winners Ettila De Sivola and INGLEBY HOLLOW. The former had a Jonjo O’Neill trained hotpot behind him when scoring here in December, but the form of that contest has been let down since, and therefore, Richard Johnson’s mount gets the nod here. A fifteen-length winner at this venue last month, this son of Beat Hollow will be tough to beat if in anywhere near that level of form today.

Brian Ellison Racing Club Chase (A Novices' Limited Handicap) (Sedgefield Young Chaser Series Qual') (Class 4)
Mistercobar silk

Mistercobar

Analysis
25/1

Cap Du Nord has occupied the runner-up berth in two of his last three starts and looks sure to run his race once again today. A chance is taken on MISTERCOBAR, however, who finished a respectable third at Wetherby on his penultimate outing. Tony Carroll’s charge disappointed at Uttoxeter last time out, but the soft ground combined with the three-mile trip likely stretched his stamina that day, so back in distance on better ground today, he is expected to put a much-improved performance.

Weatherbys Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide Handicap Hurdle (Class 3)
I'm To Blame silk

I'm To Blame

Analysis
10/11

Quest For Life has been out of sorts recently, but as a result of those performances, he is now back down to his last winning mark. This looks set to be fought out between the handicap debutantes I’M TO BLAME and Mountain Hawk, however. The latter stayed on strongly to land a novice hurdle at Newcastle last time out, suggesting that today’s step up in trip will suit. Preference is for Brian Hughes’ mount though, who has won four of his five starts to date. He ran out a wide margin winner over today’s course and distance last time out and shapes as though he has further improvement to come now handicapping.

15:50
Spray Clad Handicap Hurdle (Qualifier For The Northern Lights Two Mile Hurdle Series) (Class 4)

A tricky contest in prospect here with most arriving out of form. Snookered finished second behind the now 120-rated Kajaki over today’s course and distance on his penultimate start. He should go well here if back to that level of form, but BLOTTOS gets the vote this afternoon. A talented novice hurdler last season, Sue Smith’s charge has been out of sorts recently, but he is a dual course winner who arrives here two-pound below his last winning mark.

16:25
Weatherbys Stallion Book Handicap Chase (Class 5)
Jokers And Rogues silk

Jokers And Rogues

Analysis
2/1

The one to beat is JOKERS AND ROGUES, who ran out a facile winner over today’s course and distance last time out. A ten-pound rise in the weights looks unlikely to prevent him from following up today. Newquay Cards holds each-way claims representing Evan Williams, who has a 21% strike-rate with his runners at this venue.

17:00
Sky Sports Racing Handicap Hurdle (Class 5)
Invisible Clouds silk

Invisible Clouds

Analysis
4/1

Cavalry Scout shaped with promise on his handicap debut last time out, and first-time cheekpieces could eke out some further improvement today. He faces an interesting rival here though, in INVISIBLE CLOUDS. This Trevor Hemmings-owned six-year-old has shown glimpses of promise in novice company, and this marked step up in trip looks a positive step for his handicap debut. With first-time cheekpieces applied, he is backed to break his maiden tag at the seventh attempt today.

Tips for Sedgefield Races

A National Hunt only track, Sedgefield Racecourse is located south of the city of Durham. It used to have a run-in of 525 yards (over 2 furlongs) from the final fence to the winning post, which is even longer than the Grand National. But a plain fence was introduced in 1994 to make the run-in a more conventional length.

Course: Both the chase and hurdle courses are left-handed ovals with a circuit of 1 mile 2 furlongs. It is quite undulating and there is an uphill finish to the line so we look for tips that stay the distance well. The fences are seen as relatively easy and because there can be small fields, it can be advantageous for our tips to have tactical speed.

Feature Race: The Durham National takes place in October over a distance of 3 miles 5 furlongs and as conditions can get testing, it can be a gruelling race.
