So it is all action from over the jumps for the day and there are six selections for horse racing today.

So here are the best of today’s horse racing tips for Thursday, 4th November 2021.

All times listed are GMT.

14:30 Newbury Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 2 handicap hurdle
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners:11
Distance: 3m

Race Preview

ONE FOR YOU is expected to be a strong player in this handicap hurdle at Newbury on Thursday. He has delivered a win in his two previous handicaps.

So he makes his reappearance sitting on a hattrick after getting the latest of those wins in March at Market Rasen.

One For You is from an in-form yard and should pose a threat.

DIDTHEYLEAVEYOUOUTTO was in fine nick a month ago when he took the runner up spot in the Silver Trophy (Grade 3).

Didtheyleaveyououtto put in a strong finish on that occasion. With that in mind, he looks fine in being pushed up for the 3m test that is coming.

SPIRITOFTHEGAMES has gone a while without a win, but he is usually a competitive one to get behind.

He makes a reappearance after a long break and a wind op.

There is a bit of form in his history that has seen him perform well fresh. Spiritofthegames is not totally counted out and each-way claims are there.

Tip: ONE FOR YOU 3/1

Ones to watch: Didtheyleaveyououtto 7/2, Spiritofthegames 5/1

Race Type: Class 3 handicap chase
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 12
Distance: 2m 3 1/2f

Race Preview

This looks like a good competitive line up. Taking some preference at the head of horse racing betting is VALLERES.

There was some top-notch form by him last season, taking two wins from five runs, the other three finishes being runner-up spots.

That was all over the hurdles and will be making his chasing debut on Thursday with plenty of interest.

Valleres may have enough to make his presence felt at the first time of asking in this sphere.

REDZOE makes a return for the first time since an appearance at the 2020 Cheltenham Festival. He pulled up on those occasions.

But Redzor sits on a mark that may allow him to get into this one. Coming from a top yard will help be well dialled in for this effort.

DUBLIN FOUR picked up a victory in a handicap chase here at Newbury in March

That strong effort was followed up by a good run at Ayr which produced a fourth-place finish.

There is a chance that he can get in the mix. So too BUSTER THOMAS who won at Market Rasen in September on his latest run.

He comes up 4lb for that effort but still looks to be on a very workable and dangerous mark.


Ones to watch: Dublin Four 9/2, Buster Thomas 11/2

14:15 Sedgefield Handicap Chase Horse Racing Tips & Odds

Race Type: Class 5 handicap chase
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 11
Distance: 2m 3f

Race Preview

CILLUIRID looks to be in good heart at the moment after winning over the fences at just the second time of asking in the sphere.

That win happened here at Sedgefield on his penultimate run. He was back in action 19 days ago with an extra 7lb.

Cilluirid still went well, shaping well at Market Rasen to take third place and may have more to offer still.

DON’T NEED TO KNOW piques plenty of interest as a horse racing tip as well. He makes a seasonal return from 3lb higher.

There are plenty of other claims coming for this one and ZEN MASTER was in great shape when he won at Sedgefield Last month.

He gets a 3lb rise and needs to be respected for the contest as well.

Another fair shortlist contender is FIRST REVOLUTION who has been in reasonable form recently.

He nailed three straight runners up finishes before a slower race at Hexham saw his form dip last time out.


Ones to watch: Zen Master 13/2, First Revolution 10/1

14:45 Sedgefield Mares Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Betting

Race Type: Clas 5 mares’ handicap hurdle
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 14
Distance: 2m 5f

Race Preview

There is a big and wide-open field lining up for this mares’ contest at Sedgefield on Thursday. There are a fair few with bold claims.

LATINO FLING is one of those. She was third at Banger in May on her latest run, which was her handicap debut.

She has moved yards since and that could be a huge factor with that yard in superb form.

CAILIN DEARG is on an opening mark that should give her a reasonable shot on her reappearance run.

The longer trip will help this Irish bumper winner. She gets the tongue-tie for the first time as well.

CHOSEN SHANT was in a good mood at Worcester in a handicap on her latest run. She battled confidently to take a runner up spot in that one.

That’s back to back strong handicap showings from Chosen Shant who could have more to come.

MISSCARLETT has had a good season. She picked up a win over the hurdles at Uttoxeter in the summer in a fantastic effort.

She looked just as good finishing second from out of the weights at Hexham last month as well.


Ones to watch: Chosen Shant 4/1, Cailin Dearg 9/1

Race Type: Class 4 handicap chase
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 8
Distance: 3m 3f

Race Preview

GREY ATLANTIC WAY catches the eye with recent form. He opened his account with a course and distance victory on his penultimate run.

That was done skillfully. He was heavily involved in a follow up to that at Ayr before just getting pushed out of things at the finish.

Grey Atlantic Way should make his presence felt.

GOLD RUNNER is another that is likely to have a big say in this contest.

She scored a handicap at Southwell the last term and then misfired twice over the hurdles.

Gold Runner is tried again in the sphere and is on a reasonable mark if she can put it all together on the day.

BROTHER PAT has won three of his five previous attempts over the hurdles.

The most recent of those was at Plumpton 17 days ago, delivering that victory by 11 lengths in a superb run. There’s been an 8lb rise for him.

Tip: Grey Atlantic Way 7/2

Ones to watch: BRother Pat 2/1, Gold Runner 10/1

15:20 Sedgefield Novices’ Handicap Chase Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 4 novices’ handicap chase
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 10
Distance: 2m 3f

Race Preview

COOPER’S CROSS looks a potentially good one for this one. He was sixth of six in a chase here last month on his debut in this sphere.

But Cooper’s Cross did actually shape well in that one and is a point winner who was going well over the hurdles last season.

The extra trip may see him go better in this one.

BARON DE MIDLETON is another of the big players for this contest after back to back runners up finishes this term.

He was second at course and distance in a novices’ handicap three weeks ago. If Baron De Midleton carries on in that form, he should be right there.

HEARTBREAK KID is one to watch on his reappearance run. He has won a couple of times at Sedgefield over the hurdles.

Heartbreak Kid did well on his chase debut last season but then struggled to back it up. Heartbreak Kid warrants respect with his yard right in form.


Ones to watch: Baron De Midleton 7/2, Cooper’s Cross 7/2
