Daily Racing Tips: 11/01/2020

11/01/2020

Neil Morrice walks you through the front runners for racing at Chelmsford, Lingfield, Kempton Park and Warwick on 11/01/2020.

Warwick

Race 3: HOLD THE NOTE
Trainer: Mick Channon – Jockey: Jonathan Burke

HOLD THE NOTE was taken out of the novices’ handicap chase at Kempton on Boxing Day when front running Roll Again crashed just as the race was starting to take shape. He appeared to be travelling kindly in the slipstream of that rival, making it hard to fathom why he is more than twice the price of his rival in this rematch. He’s the nicest young prospect amongst Mick Channon’s jumpers and can bounce back.

Race 6: ONE FOR THE TEAM
Trainer: Nick Williams – Jockey: Sam Twiston-Davies

Representing Newbury form from November that stands up to the closest inspection, ONE FOR THE TEAM jumps off the page as a well-weighted candidate for this stayers’ handicap hurdle. His conqueror Champers On Ice certainly hasn’t let the form down and the selection looks sure to have a big say after being freshened up by his astute trainer.

Kempton

Race 1: FRASER ISLAND
Trainer: Nicky Henderson – Jockey: Nico de Boinville

Having skipped the tougher Chatteris Fen Hurdle at Huntingdon to wait for this, FRASER ISLAND can give us a flying start to the day in this opening juvenile hurdle. The former smart stayer on the Flat landed some hefty wagers on his debut over jumps at Newbury where he was in complete command from the penultimate flight. He also jumped with eclat, and this can prove a small step towards the Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham in March.

Race 6: ON THE BLIND SIDE
Trainer: Nicky Henderson – Jockey: Nico de Boinville

Time may show that ON THE BLIND SIDE was attempting the impossible to match it with new kid on the block Riders On the Storm at Ascot, but he made a good fist of it for much of the way in that graduation chase. His seven-length defeat might soon be seen to read particularly well, but in the meantime, the lightly-raced 8yo can make the best of it returned to handicap company.

Lingfield 11/01/2020

Race 2: SASSOON
Trainer: Paul Cole – Jockey: Ben Curtis

SASSOON is on a recovery mission after failing to menace when favourite on his latest start but his trainer now gambles on a big step up the distance ladder to assist his cause. The blinkered selection has been largely disappointing but has the ability and the booking of Curtis is a positive.

Race 4: ULTIMATE AVENUE
Trainer: David Simcock – Jockey: Luke Morris

The hooded ULTIMATE AVENUE steps up the class ladder and has it to do on the ratings, but against that he has knocked on the door including when finishing with gusto behind Mohareb here at the end of last month and he could be worth chancing to cause a minor upset.

Race 5: SHAFFIRE
Trainer: Harry Whittington – Jockey: Nicola Currie

Whittington does well with his few runners on the Flat and SHAFFIRE can go well, getting stacks of weight from her rivals in this fillies’ handicap. She’s troubled the judge on her last two starts and performs as if her turn is close at hand. She was put up a long way in the ratings after her promising run here and may have finished closer than fourth last time had she not been pushed wide turning in.

Chelmsford 11/01/2020

Race 3: XIAN EXPRESS
Trainer: Mike Appleby – Jockey: Ben Curtis

Having been all out to get up when sent off at 1-12 over the minimum trip at Southwell, XIAN EXPRESS now takes a big jump up in trip to a mile. His trainer sends out the blinkered top-weight to strike while the iron is hot and if he stays he should win.

Race 5: ROTHERWICK (Each Way)
Trainer: Paul Cole – Jockey: David Probert

He might have been round the block a few times but ROTHERWICK can show he’s no back number for a stable doing well with its few all-weather runners. This looks a winnable opportunity for the blinkered gelding who will receive top assistance from the saddle.
