Daily Racing Tips: 17/11/2019
Neil Morrice brings us all of his best bets and tips from racing at Cheltenham and Punchestown on 17/11/2019.
Race 2: URGENT DE GREGAINE
Trainer: Emmanuel Clayeux – Jockey: Felix De Giles
French raider URGENT DE GREGAINE stands out in this rescheduled Cross Country Handicap Chase. The 11-year-old is a rare visitor to racecourses but has winning form here which counts for a great deal on this track. Furthermore his bold bid against Tiger Roll in the Glenfarclas race here at the Festival in March is outstandingly the best form on offer.
Race 4: SAINT CALVADOS
Trainer: Harry Whittington – Jockey: Gavin Sheehan
The late decision to reroute SAINT CALVADOS to this featured Schloer Chase can pay off, although the new hold up tactics employed on him on his comeback here last month might be hard to carry out in a four runner contest that is bound to become tactical. The 6yo showed the benefits of a close season wind operation when clearly enjoying the heavy ground and beating Vaniteaux a length. He now needs to consolidate against top notchers Defi Du Sevilla and Politologue but he’s so much in the zone with his yard amongst the winners that I think he can.
Race 7: STONER’S CHOICE
Trainer: Fergal O’Brien – Jockey: Max Kendrick
This is a difficult puzzle to untangle but STONER’S CHOICE can give it a good shot at a decent price. He overcame greenness when opening his account at Warwick in the spring and looked very useful when the penny dropped inside the final furlong. He should be much more the finished article with a summer behind him and can continue the fine form of his stable.
Race 2: HARVEST BOW
Trainer: Noel Meade – Jockey: E Walsh
The hugely impressive Ballinrobe scorer HARVEST BOW looks to hold the cards in this juvenile hurdle. He has subsequently performed with less credit on the Flat, finishing in mid division behind Paisley at Gowran, but back in his comfort zone he should prove hard to beat.
Race 4: EJAYTEEKAY
Trainer: Gavin Cromwell – Jockey: J Moore
EJAYTEEKAY is a horse who needs the rub of the green when trying to cut through horses at the business end of his races but in this relatively small field the 6yo should be effective if on a going day. Though out of sorts when last seen at Listowel in the autumn, he’s benefitted from a short break.
