Today's Horse Racing Tips: Getariver to strike for Skelton

Racing tips for Tuesday at Fakenham.
Racing tips for Tuesday at Fakenham.

Regular followers may have noticed that Kryptos won at a decent price yesterday; his first success since returning from a tendon injury. I have raved about this horse on numerous occasions in the past, but a positive Covid test result to manage at school meant that I was otherwise engaged and missed his run. If he were mine, I would be aiming him at the Lincoln. He was impressive on his only previous run over the Doncaster mile and would be likely to encounter his optimum ground.

There is just one bet for today’s racing at Fakenham. Good luck!

Fakenham Tip

14:33 – 2m Sculthorpe Mares’ Handicap Hurdle (Class 3)

The lightly-raced GETARIVER (NAP – 1 point win bet at 5/2) has always appeared to be well regarded by the Skelton team, and since joining them as a winning Point To Pointer, she has won two NHF races, a maiden hurdle and a ‘jumpers bumper’.  

She was tried over fences on her seasonal reappearance in September but finished last of the five runners in a race won by the classy Fusil Raffles. It was therefore no surprise to see her revert to hurdling last time out and she made a bold bid from the front at Stratford. Five lengths clear and looking in control, she tired late on and was collared on the line by a fast finisher.  

She can gain compensation for that narrow defeat today and should be well suited by the sharp nature of the track at Fakenham. Ground conditions should be ideal, Harry Skelton gets back on board and it is interesting that they have opted to remove the hood that she has worn for her last six outings as she is unbeaten in three races without that headgear. 

The Alan King-trained Midnight’s Gift looks the biggest danger, and Nordican Bleue is an interesting contender on her return from a 424-day absence.
