Daily Racing Tips: 07/12/2019
Neil Morrice offers up all is best bets and tips for a competitive day of racing around the UK on 07/12/2019.
Race 4: MOUNT MEWS
Trainer: Donald McCain – Jockey: William Kennedy
At the age of 8 there’s still time for the injury plagued MOUNT MEWS to realise his potential. He saw the racecourse just three times last season but returned with a most encouraging display when finishing second to Sakhee’s City at Wetherby. If avoiding the ‘bounce’ factor and stepping up on that effort he will be hard to beat.
Race 7: MIGHT BITE
Trainer: Nicky Henderson – Jockey: Nico de Boinville
It’s doubtful that MIGHT BITE will engage in the same ferocious duel that we remember from last year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup in this four runner contest but it’s nevertheless a treat for the sport to witness this early rematch. The grinder Native River is hard to get past but at this stage of the campaign Might Bite can achieve it. He’s been beaten by his rival on each of the four times they’ve met but on this occasion the ball is in his court as he’s been going great guns at home.
Race 1: TIMBERMAN
Trainer: Nicky Henderson – Jockey: Brian Hughes
Such has been Henderson’s dominance in this race that whatever he runs has to be taken very seriously. It’s therefore with plenty of conviction that I think TIMBERMAN will prevail. The former point-to-pointer couldn’t stave off stablemate Son Of Camas on his jumps debut at Newbury but that form has a very solid look to it and rates stronger than Fiddlerontheroof’s race at Wincanton.
Race 4: NUBE NEGRA
Trainer: Dan Skelton – Jockey: Harry Skelton
If the Skeltons have a potential Arkle Trophy prospect in the yard then NUBE NEGRA is undoubtably the one. He’s looked a natural for fences in his two successes from as many outings and toyed with his rivals at Fakenham last time. His jumping was a joy to behold and should lend itself perfectly to this course with its famous Railway fences. He can complete the hat-trick on the way to better things.
Race 1: YOUNG BULL
Trainer: Harry Whittington – Jockey: Page Fuller
YOUNG BULL decisively landed some sizeable bets at Ffos Las and is in a good spot to consolidate in this novices’ hurdle. In a race where another penalised runner Oscar Robertson is the obvious threat, the selection can further underline the high regard held for him by his in form trainer. He looked better the further he travelled on that occasion and should but suited by track, ground and trip.
Race 1: NATIVE ROBIN
Trainer: Jeremy Scott – Jockey: Nick Schofield
Having travelled much the best NATIVE ROBIN again found one to beat him in an admittedly competitive contest at Wincanton last time. Although that was his third near miss on the bounce he’s a thoroughly genuine performer with five chase wins in his CV and this is a good opportunity for him to get back on track.
Race 3: MUFFINS FOR TEA
Trainer: Colin Tizzard – Jockey: Jonjo O’Neill jnr
MUFFINS FOR TEA had very solid form until suffering an injury which has kept him sidelined for more than 600 days. The 9yo is fit for this return to hurdling and now is probably the time to catch him, with O’Neill an eye catching jockey booking.
