We start our day’s previews on the all-weather with one mile handicap.
Tiger’s Home is the clear favourite in the market at present which isn’t too much of a surprise as she’s won both her previous outings here with one being over course and distance; she won by an impressive seven lengths last time out over seven furlongsn having been raised six pounds but she’s up a further eleven pounds for that seven length victory and that should reel her closer to the field this time out.
Beat Tamayuz was narrowly beaten over seven furlongs on this track last time out behind the horse that Tiger’s Home beat by seven lengths so he could go close with the favourites current mark.
Big Storm Coming hasn’t raced on this surface for over two years but did win when last seen at this track, he looks like he could be a real player here after a few good runs on the turf this year.
Royal Holiday and Moonlight Venture are others that have won previously over course and distance with the former looking best weighted to go close here but Big Storm Coming still looks better.
Big Storm Coming (E/W if 9/2+)
14:40 Fontwell Park
We head to Fontwell for our second preview a seventeen furlong handicap hurdle.
Tickity Blue and Oscar Prairie look the two who’ll battle it out to start the race as favourite but in my opinion neither have a real strong case. The former hasn’t been seen since dead heating nearly two years ago and even though she did look good that day and is apart of a great yard she still may needs this to get anywhere near race fit. The latter went close at Exeter last time out but has been slapped with a further five pounds so he could be just headed out again today.
My Anchor has done well over middle distances on the flat and wasn’t disgraced when tried over hurdles in maiden company on his latest two outings; he’s not badly treated for his handicap debut and may be one to keep an eye on.
There seemed to be something wrong with Dainty Diva when sent off as the favourite in October after a good win around here previously; she should go close if back to her best.
Superciliary is another worth noting if also back to his best; he’s only a few pounds higher then when he completed a double early last year and could be good value as an E/W selection.
My Anchor (E/W)
We head back to Southwell for our final preview a fourteen furlong handicap.
La Estrella is the only previous course and distance winner in the field but that was back in 2012 where he won seven back to back and showed there was still a lot left in him when he posted another five wins as an eleven year old; he’s due to go in again especially after his run last time out.
Swift Cedar can pop up anytime he wants and looks to be on a good mark for this today; he won here over a slightly shorter trip last month and should go close again today.
Frosty Berry comes here seeking a hat-trick after two good wins with one being over course last time out but has a six pound penalty to negotiate this time out.
Serenity Now is another upped six pounds and his win over the hurdles in October should give aphid a real confidence boost for this today and look the one to beat.
Serenity Now (WIN)
