There are six bets for today’s racing at Ascot and Haydock.

Ascot Tips

14:25 – 3m½f Howden Long Walk Hurdle (Grade 1) 

This could be the season that THYME HILL (NAP – 1 point win bet at 9/4) dominates the staying hurdle division and he can put his disappointing seasonal reappearance in France behind him and get back to winning ways. Still just seven, this Philip Hobbs-trained horse is already a dual Grade 1 and triple Grade 2 winner. He also went down by just a neck to Paisley Park in a pulsating finish to this race last season. His form is rock solid at the highest level and he should be spot on for today’s contest. The ground in France was far from ideal and conditions at Ascot should be much more to his liking. Tom O’Brien gets on board for just the fourth time with regular partner Richard Johnson now retired, but he knows the horse really well and was in the saddle for his Grade 1 Aintree victory back in April. Champ, a Grade 1 winner over hurdles and fences, is feared most on his return to action.

15:00 – 3m Howden Silver Cup Handicap Chase (Listed) 

Jockey Sam Twiston-Davies has been in good form of late with eight winners at a 21% strike rate in the past fortnight. He can land another success for his father Nigel courtesy of their improving chaser CHECKITOUT (1 point win bet at 17/2), who won twice earlier in the year and has come back with two solid placed efforts this season. Second over this course and distance on his seasonal reappearance in October, he then finished third of the 21 runners in the Becher Chase at Aintree two weeks ago. Both of those runs came in a higher grade so this represents a slight drop in class. He gets in off just 10-8 and will receive weight from all but one of today’s rivals.

I also think STEP BACK (0.5 point win bet at 25/1) could outrun his big odds. This lightly-raced chaser will be making his first start for a year but he has won two of his last three races. Now 11-years-old, it remains to be seen whether he is still good enough to compete in this grade, but he has plenty of class having won the bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown in 2018. He’s a bold jumper and will be dangerous if the excellent Nico de Boinville can settle him into a good rhythm.

15:35 – 1m7½f Betfair Exchange Trophy Handicap Hurdle (Grade 3)

Goshen would be a popular winner of this ultra-competitive handicap hurdle but he faces a tough ask off top weight against a host of exciting improvers. Preference is for the prolific ONEMOREFORTHEROAD (1 point win bet at 11/1), who has won five of his eight starts over timber. Unbeaten in three races this season, he has pulled clear by a combined distance of over seven lengths and his latest effort came in Listed company to earn him this step up in class. Bryony Frost continues to ride incredibly well despite a tough period in her career, and she has a fine record aboard this Neil King-trained six-year-old. Her five rides on this confirmed front runner to date have produced form figures of 31311 and another bold bid is expected. West Cork and No Ordinary Joe, first and third respectively in the Greatwood Hurdle at Cheltenham last time out, complete the shortlist.

Haydock Tips

14:40 – 3m1½f Virgin Bet Tommy Whittle Handicap Chase (Class 2) 

BUZZ DE TURCOING (1 point win bet at 7/1), a Point to Point and hurdles winner, has made a good start to life over the larger obstacles. Second on his chasing debut / seasonal reappearance, he improved to win comfortably at Ayr 19 days ago. This step out of novice company and rise in grade clearly demands more, but he is an exciting staying chaser going forward and won on testing ground here at Haydock a year ago.

At a huge price, I’d also give a chance to NOTACHANCE (0.5 point win bet at 40/1) despite the fact that he has been pulled up in his last three starts. Prior to that, he was a really good winner of the Classic Chase at Warwick with that extreme test of stamina clearly suiting him. This race should therefore be ideal for Alan King’s runner, and regular jockey Tom Cannon gets back on board.
