Race Preview

Here we go with an exciting first race of Saturday’s horse racing betting tips, as we look at the Midlands Grand National.

TIME TO GET UP should have a big shout in this one as he was a good progressive novice chaser in the previous campaign.

It hasn’t quite come together this season for him, but he dug in well through the mud at Haydock a month ago to take third.

Last year’s winner Time To Get Up is only up 4lb from his winning mark from 12 months ago.

TRUCKERS LODGE looks to be in a good enough mood to have a decent crack at this as well.

He hasn’t won for a couple of years now, but there have been two recent good efforts from him.

Truckers Lodge took a third in the Welsh National before finishing in the same spot on his follow up in a Listed 3m Ascot handicap.

FINAL NUDGE returns after a break of about two and a half months. He went into that break in great form.

The veteran was third in last year’s Midlands National and won at Warwick to open the season in a veteran’s handicap.

He followed up in that same sphere with a runner up at Sandown.

Final Nudge needs to be respected with some place claims on Saturday.

DE YOUNG WARRIOR looks like he could develop into a good stayer in chasing. It’s been nothing but positives from him over the fences.

He opened the season with 3m handicap wins at Exeter and Chepstow.

He was back at Chepstow for his latest and took a runner-up spot in a race that fell apart.


Ones to watch: Time To Get Up 7/2, Final Nudge 12/1

15:00 Uttoxeter Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 2 handicap hurdle
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 12
Distance: 2m 4f

Race Preview

PANIC ATTACK earned a credible fourth place finish at Cheltenham in a 3m contest in October.

That was after a break of more than 5th months. Panic Attack has been away since then but has to be respected as he returns at the same mark.

BEAUPORT is up 6lb from a second-place finish at Sandown on his latest run, in which was a very strong handicap hurdle.

It has been a run of the straight second-place finishes from him. He has just found excellent form this season and the drop in distance will get Beauport close.

JEPECK is the final one that gets on the shortlists for this very competitive-looking race.

The veteran continues to retain a lot of ability. Jepeck claimed a win in January at Wincanton and has been in the places on his three subsequent runs. A 10lb claimer helps.


Ones to watch: Beauport 7/2, Jepeck 20/1 e/w

14:25 Uttoxeter Novices’ Handicap Chase Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 2
Age: 5-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 7
Distance: 3m

Race Preview

SAINT PALAIS came into this sphere with a bang at the start of the season, winning all three efforts over the fences.

He was pushed up to a Grade 2 contest at Wehterby on his latest effort.

Saint Palais came up short in the Towton in that one, not looking at his best game.

FUJI FLIGHT is seeking a hattrick as he comes back into action on Saturday. Wins at Hereford and Newbury have put him in good stead.

There should be more progress made by Fuji Flight who has a 7lb claimer. Fuji Flight has handled himself well and should be right there.

DOCPICKCEDME is another that is sitting on a hat-trick chance. He got off the mark over the fences at the third time of asking.

That was here at Uttoxeter in December. He followed that up with another win at the venue. Docpickedme gets the visor for the first time.


Ones to watch: Saint Palais 7/2, Fuji Flight 7/2

15:10 Newcastle Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 3 handicap hurdle
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 4
Distance: 2m

Race Preview

THEATRE LEGEND has taken back to back third-place finishes and she looks to have found her feet a bit in this sphere.

She is down 5lb from her mark when she won this race 12 months ago.

There should be strong claims there from him and she finished ahead of Minella Plus at course and distance in February.

MINELLA PLUS was fourth behind the third-placed Theatre Legend at C&D in February.

At the end of last year, she rattled off a hattrick. She hasn’t quite beaten at the same level this year, but can’t be discounted in this small field.

VIOX DE REVE should go well again in this one and the handicapper looks to have been lenient with him.

He has retained ability on his last three runs, each of them ending in defeat. Voix De Reve lowers his sights a little bit and can get in the thick of things.


Ones to watch: Minella Plus 4/1, Voix Du Rêve 15/8

15:43 Newcastle Novices’ Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 2
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 4
Distance: 2m 6f

Race Preview

JETOILE has found some good form this season and looks like a good novice hurdle.

He banked a couple of wins at Chepstow and Leicester, before finding only Constitution Hill too good on his penultimate run.

Jetoile was last seen in the Betfair Hurdle a month ago where he found the going very difficult. This is much easier.

KAYF HERNANDO opened the season with a victory in October over the hurdles at Carlisle.

He hasn’t been at the same level in three follow up efforts. A wind op may help him and after not staying at 3m last time out, Kayf Hernando should thrive on the drop in trip.

RAFFERTY’S RETURN has won two of three runs this season, including a hurdles victory in January after a break of 10 months.

STEINKRAUS won at Ludlow in September and was poor last time out. The cheekpieces go on for the first time.

Tip: JETOILE 5/4

Ones to watch: Kayf Hernando 4/1, Rafferty’s Return 13/8

15:15 Kempton Handicap Chase Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 2
Age: 5-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 10
Distance: 2m 4 1/2f

Race Preview

DEBECE was a third-place finisher at Newcastle three weeks ago in a handicap chase.

That was a return to form for him, not having completed his reappearance run. As he stays at the same mark Debece can threaten.

NATIVE ROBIN is likely going to be one of the brother big players in this one. The veteran has been steaming along recently.

There was a hattrick completed by him four weeks ago at Wincanton, racking up another impressive score. Native Robin can’t be ignored in this kind of mood.

ESPOIR DE GUYE is up 4lb from a winning record at Warwick three weeks ago. That was in a 3-runner field.

This is tougher, but it was still a very credible run following a wind op and a break. He could find himself involved.

Tip: DEBECE 7/1

Ones to watch: Espoir De Guye 4/1, Native Robin 9/1
