Today’s horse racing tips for Friday take a look at some top action that is on the card from Newbury.

That includes the big Grade 2 Long Distance Hurdle which is the highlight of the day with a classy line up taking part in that.

We have a selection for that race as well as from five other fixtures from the day between further races at Newbury and some at Lingfield.

Here are the best of today’s horse racing tips for Friday, 26th November 2021.

All times listed are GMT.

Declared Runners: 6
Distance: 3m

Race Preview

This is a cracking race with plenty of the runners having a more than reasonable chance of getting the win on the board.

PAISLEY PARK returns to action after a credible third-place finish at Wetherby in the West Yorkshire Hurdle a month ago.

That was a reappearance run and he will be looking to push forward from that.

Paisley Park gets the cheekpieces on for the first time sees big rival INDEFATIGABLE worse off in the weights.

Indefatigable took the win at the West Yorkshire Hurdle and finished ahead of Paisley Park by more than five lengths.

However, she is now 6lb worse off in the weights for Friday’s return.

But it all may balance out as Indefatigable barely ever puts a foot wrong.

There was a big enough distance to Paisley Park to suggest that she can go boldly against him again despite the rise.

MRS MILNER comes up in grade here after claiming a win in a Listed contest at Limerick on her reappearance run.

She’s a good mare but this is going to be testing for her.

Mrs Milner did storm the field in the Pertemps Final at Cheltenham back in March this year and she may be totally out of the frame.


Ones to watch: Paisley Park 9/4, Mrs Milner 3/1

FANION D’ESTRUVAL is probably going to be fairly hard to knock over in this contest as he comes in at top weight.

He went well on his recent appearance in the Old Roan, going strongly there at Aintree to take a fourth-place finish.

There were excellent ones in front of him on that occasion.

That run will only serve to have sharpened Fanion D’Estruval up even further so he is a big, big player.

This is a very competitive fixture, make no mistake.

PHOENIX WAY has potential as he returns to action after a long break and a wind op.

He opened his chase account successfully 12 months ago and was shaping up well in the sphere, including taking fourth place when thrown into a Grade 1 at Aintree.

NEVILLE’S CROSS is not to be dismissed with three wins in his last four runs.

He scored at Uttoxeter in July and delivered follow up victories at Exeter and most recently at Hereford a couple of weeks ago.

He’s bang in form and can’t be ignored.

Unfortunately, Umbrigado has been declared a non-runner for this one.

But another that could warrant some respect is GAELIK COAST.

He has been going well including taking a win at Musselburgh two weeks ago. He comes up 5lb with place claims.


Ones to watch: Neville’s cross 11/1, Gaelik Coast 15/2

It’s a small field for this Grade 2 Newbury contest. It’s a small but very good field. TEA CLIPPER picked up a win on his reappearance 48 days ago.

That was on his chasing debut recorded at Chepstow. He looks as if he could come from that one after making a very good impression.

NASSALAM was also a winner last time out.

He made his chasing debut a month ago at Ascot, looking pretty useful. He looks like another who has plenty more to offer in the sphere.

MILLER’S BANK faces a tougher challenge but made a good start to chasing with a novice success at Huntingdon.

That was a month ago and he could get in this.

PIC D’ORPHY has claims as well after a comfortable win at Ffos Las 41 days ago, in a 4-runner field.

That was a reasonable step forward in form over the fences from him.


Ones to watch: Tea Clipper 3/1, Nassalam 5/2

We are down even smaller with this 3-runner field. OSTILIO has to be considered for this one with the hood back on.

He put in a good shift when third to Documenting in a minor event around here a week ago.

That was no disgrace and is entitled to come further.

DOCUMENTING has won four times before at Lingfield and is probably going to be the one to beat.

He strolled to a comfortable win here six days ago and will be hard to knock over at these weights.

INTUITIVE is a former course and distance winner, but he never really found that same groove in any of his subsequent runs.

He returns from a break of seven months after looking well below his best.

Intuitive is more than capable, but just needs a touch of a revival at the moment.


Ones to watch: Ostilio 4/1, Intuitive 2/1

13:30 Lingfield Handicap Horse Racing Odds

Race Type: Class 4 handicap
Age: 3-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 6
Distance: 7f

Race Preview

DUBAI HOPE looks to be one who is stacked with promise and potential. She arrives on a hattrick bid for this one.

The latest of her wins came at Wolverhampton 41 days ago and clearly benefited from the drop in trip on the day.

Dubai Hope has been given an extra 10lb to work with, but looks to have a devastating turn of foot when she turns it on.

IVASECRET will do well not to give Dubai Hope any kind of soft lead in this one.

He produced an eye-catching run in a Kempton handicap 51 days ago.

He left his challenge too late from a poor position in that one, but Ivasecret is a former course and distance and looks as if he can get right in this.

The other shortlisted for this handicap action is going to be SHOOT TO KILL who took his latest win in the summer at Nottingham.

There was a good effort from him at Kempton a month ago, and that’s the last twice in which he has gone well now, so could feature.


Ones to watch: Dubai Hope 4/5, Shoot To Kill 13/2

Declared Runners: 10
Distance: 6f

Race Preview

We are down to our final race for horse racing betting today. FAUVETTE looks like a strong contender for this one.

She has taken two wins in five this season, those victories both coming in the last three efforts.

Fauvette was last seen three weeks ago taking a Chelmsford City handicap with plenty to spare. So she should be right there.

THE LAMPLIGHTER isn’t to be dismissed from this one after a good success at Goodwood In June.

He’s fairly consistent and delivered a very good runner up effort at Wolverhampton 25 days ago.

TWILIGHT MADNESS brings some very hot seasonal form to the table in this one.

He opened the campaign with three straight wins.

He is just a little too eager with his challenge in going for a four-timer at Windsor three months ago. But the form is clearly there for Twilight Madness.

Tip: FAUVETTE 10/3

Ones to watch: Twilight Madness 13/8, The Lamplighter 8/1
