Daily Racing Tips: 25/10/2019
Check out Neil’s best bets and tips from UK Racing at Newbury and Cheltenham on 25/10/2019.
Race 7: AFTER JOHN
Trainer: Mick Channon – Jockey: Kieran O’Neill
AFTER JOHN is not straightforward to train but has abundant ability when he chooses to use it. He goes in the very soft ground and finished as well as anything when third to Atalanta’s Boy in a Class 4 at Goodwood last time. This represents a step up the ladder but getting weight from everything in the field he is of interest.
Race 8: MR SMITH
Trainer: C Bynes – Jockey: Levi Williams
Fresh from a resounding win over hurdles at Roscommon, when he was backed as if defeat was out of the question, MR SMITH is hard to weigh up transferred to the Flat and could be a laydown. He clearly loves the testing conditions, his confidence is sky high and the question has to be asked why is he making the long journey from Ireland.

Race 2: AL DANCER
Trainer: Nigel Twiston-Davies – Jockey: Sam Twiston-Davies
Undoubtedly the best of these over hurdles, AL DANCER can make a successful start to his new career over fences. He’s taken to the larger obstacles like a duck to water in his schooling at home and can have the measure of Getaway Trump. The selection captured Ascot’s Betfair Hurdle in February, and although disappointing at the Festival was probably over the top. He can go a long way as a chaser.
Race 4: WHOLESTONE
Trainer: Nigel Twiston-Davies – Jockey: Daryl Jacob
WHOLESTONE can make it a red letter day for his local connections by outclassing his foes. Last year’s Relkeel Hurdle winner jumped left when scoring on his chase debut at Perth but if repeated that trait shouldn’t prove a hindrance and he can defy his penalty on the way to better things.
Race 5: GETARIVER
Trainer: Dan Skelton – Jockey: Harry Skelton
The unbeaten GETARIVER looked more than useful when backing up her point-to-point win with two bumper triumphs and has all the equipment needed, via a tongue tie and a hood, to make her settle. The free going 6yo kept finding of spite of taking a keen grip when last seen at Newbury in March and if her jumping holds up on this switch to hurdles will be hard to catch.
