Race Preview

ESPOIR DE GUYE collected a win from fresh last season, taking a score at Ascot on that run.

He makes a return on Friday after a year away from the action. The last time he ran was when he took a runner up spot in this very fixture.

Espoir De Guye has had a wind op during his break and he is also down 2lb so he could have a big chance.

ALNADAM came on well over the fences last season and took a couple of wins at this very distance.

For this season’s action, he has been ticking along well, before he struggled to get going in the Peter Marsh last month. A bounceback from Alnadam is not out of the question.

HOLLYWOODIEN has won before at Warwick but he is a tough one to catch when he is on his game.

His attitude failed him on his latest run which was at Weatherby in January.

He is on a decent mark and the longer trip could help him out.


Ones to watch: Alnadam 7/4, Hollywoodien 4/1

15:05 Warwick Mares’ Handicap Chase Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 3
Age: 5-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 6
Distance: 3m

Race Preview

LEGENDS RYDE has the stamina to easily stay in this one and this is an easier contest than she had last time out.

There was a chase debit win for her at Ffos Las at the start of the season.

A lot has been asked of her since and battled for 5th of 8 in a valuable mares’ handicap at Lingfield last month.

Legends Ryde should have a fair chance now as she comes down in grade, and that is an easier contest.

ELEANOR BOB is sitting on a hattrick chance and there has been a big improvement in her staying power.

Those two latest wins have been at 3m and the most recent of those was a couple of weeks ago at Huntington.

Eleanor Bob comes up 6lb but she is thriving at the moment.

HAWTHORN COTTAGE struggled on an effort at Newbury last time out, which may just have been a rare off day for her.

Since then she has gone away for a wind op. Hawthorn Cottage is a big front runner and the rest would be foolish to let her go.


Ones to watch: Eleanor Bob 2/1, Legends Ryde 11/4

15:50 Exeter Handicap Chase Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 3
Age: 5-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 13
Distance: 2m 5 1/2f

Race Preview

CLASSIC BEN looked to be moving well on his latest effort, which was at this same mark here at Exeter.

But he went down at third in that one. While Classic Ben has not taken a win since 2019, he may be able to find a way into this contest with a clear run.

PEMBERLEY has been going well for a while now and claimed a win in December on a 3m trip at Warwick.

He was last seen in the Surrey National and went down four from home, but he was going well in the race nonetheless.

Pemberley stays at the same mark and can get involved if he puts it all together.

THE LATE LEGEND won five times last season and he has produced a couple of good runs as of late as well.

On his penultimate run, The Late Legend rattled the crossbar over course and distance and then was fourth in the Lincolnshire Nations.

He returns after a break of a couple of months and he comes back and he should pose a threat in this contest.

SNUFF BOX is sitting on a hat-trick as he comes back after winning at Lingfield just 10 days ago. That was after fortune had helped him out at Bangor.

He is thriving at the moment and even though he is under a 7lb penalty, Snuff Box can make his presence felt if he can back up that recent effort.


Ones to watch: The Late Legend 11/1, Classic Ben 7/1

15:20 Exeter Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 4
Age: 4 years old plus
Declared Runners: 10
Distance: 2m 7f

Race Preview

RADDON TOP has won the last twice and therefore warrants respect in this effort as he goes for a bold hattrick bid.

He has come on brilliantly since making the switch to handicapping over the hurdles. Those two recent wins were here at Exeter and looked excellent on his move up to this trip last time out.

DYNAMITE KENTUCKY just missed out on a hat-trick bid last time out as he took a runner-up spot at Plumpton 11 days ago.

He has been rapidly improving over the hurdles since coming up in distance to around the 3m trip.

Dynamite Kentucky won here at Exeter in January.

YOUNG BUTLER has won two of the last three efforts, those scores happening at Chepstow and more recently Plumpton in January.

While he did misfire on a tougher trip at Ascot on his penultimate run, his form on either side has been good enough to get himself in this.


Ones to watch: Dynamite Kentucky 3/1, Young Butler 6/1

Race Type: Class 3
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 5
Distance: 1m 2f

OLD PORT could get himself heavily involved in this one as he is thriving at the moment.

He has stepped forward rapidly this season and completed a hattrick 19 days ago at Kempton.

Old Port was well in control of that and only came up 2lb from that.

EMBLEM EMPIRE has only had four racetrack appearances and has won two of those.

The most recent of those was at Chelmsford City in October. Emblem Empire was a runner up at course and distance on his latest, three months ago.

ANYTHING TODAY is a former course and distance winner, with the most recent of those victories coming in August.

The last two trips haven’t really quite gone to plan, running out of steam at Kempton three weeks ago.

He is on a reduced mark and can have a say.

Tip: OLD PORT 5/2

Ones to watch: Emblem Empire 13/8, Anythingtoday 9/1

16:05 Lingfield Handicap Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 6
Age: 3-year-olds only
Declared Runners: 12
Distance: 1m

Race Preview

BULLEIT picked up a win three weeks ago, comfortably so as well ahead of Aurelia Gold who goes up against him as well.

Bulleit looked to enjoy the extra trip that he was given last time out in getting that score, and he should make his presence felt.

AURELIA GOLD put together a good run to finish a length back of Bulleit in her latest effort three weeks ago.

That was her first run for her new yard and she looked good for it.

If she backs that up then she should be right there.

GUITAR collected a win at Wolverhampton a month ago. Everything came together well for him there.

He will have his first run for a new yard on Friday and comes up just 3lb for that.

If he can deliver the stamina then he has some claims.

Tip: BULLEIT 11/4

Ones to watch: Aurelia gold 7/2, Guitar 7/2
