Horse Racing Tips: Pilot to Pay the way at Hereford on Monday

JAN 16th

There are three horse racing fixtures taking place on Monday with Fontwell sadly abandoned, but the action gets under way at Punchestown at 12:50 in the solitary Irish fixture, while there's a brace of meetings on UK soil with Hereford and Wolverhampton offering competitive action. We preview all Monday's racing here and pick out some of the most popular naps from our naps table...

Kim Bailey's Pay The Pilot made a winning start to his hurdling career when landing victory back in March at Ffos Las and the six-year-old will look to make it two from two over timber in the 16:10 at Hereford on Monday and the 7/2 shot has proven very popular with the tipsters in our naps table. Three of them - including West Country from the Racing Post - have napped the Bailey raider. who lines up in handicap company for the first time and off a mark of 110 he looks to stand a terrific chance of tasting more success.

Staying at Hereford, the Kerry Lee-trained Fay Ce Que Voudras is another horse running today that has been napped by three tipsters and the 2/1 chance is a leading contender for the 15:40 race. Napped by Templegate from The Sun and West Tip from the Western Morning News, Lee's raider will have the burden of top weight and having finished second on both hurdles starts the seven-year-old mare has to stand a great chance of getting her head in front today.

The Brigadier sits second in the naps table and is looking to bridge the gap with current leader Rory Delargy and the former has napped the 11/10 favourite City Chief in the 14:40 at Hereford. Nicky Henderson's raider will face only two rivals over fences this afternoon with Coconut Splash and Jet Plane looking notable rivals, but the Seven Barrows charge will improve for his chasing debut at Exeter and should be capable of striking gold here.

Two horses have been napped by three tipsters at Wolverhampton's evening fixture and they are the Andrew Balding-trained Roscioli in the 19:30 race and David O'Meara's Barenboim in the 18:00 contest. The former is currently a 7/2 shot for the 19:30 and is the best bet of both Moorestyle and Picksfromthepaddock and he was last seen finishing fifth at Wolverhampton and off top weight today has to be respected. Meanwhile 7/4 chance Barenboim has caught the eye of Dean Kilbryde from the East Anglian Daily Times and that contender has won three of his last four races and the son of Derby winner Golden Horn still looks capable of more, so has to be the one to beat at 18:00.

Punchestown host some decent National Hunt racing on Monday and Mercury of The Daily Post will look to land a third winning nap on the bounce when he heads to the 14:20 race for the best bet of the day. Mercury has napped the 15/8 chance Verdant Place, who runs for Patrick Foley and Simon Torrens, and he shaped with promise when third at the track last month and shaped like he's more than capable of landing this sort of contest.

Karl Hedley from The Irish Post also heads to Punchestown on Monday and that tipster has napped the 7/1 shot Mahler Appeal, who runs in the 15:20 event and that contender was last seen finishing an excellent second at Fairyhouse and could go close if improving on that run.
