We kick off Wednesday’s horse racing tips with a very competitive field at Ffos Las for this handicap chase. There are plenty with serious claims.

One of those that get on the shortlist are NADA TO PRADA who should have more to offer as she steps into handicapping.

There was a second-place finish for the mare on her reappearance, which was just over a month ago at Worcester in a novice event.

Nada To Prada is low mileage and has a lot to offer.

CHINWAG has been a progressive type over the hurdles and there wasn’t a bad debut made by him over the fences.

The chase debut for Chinwag was a month ago at Newton Abbot in which he stuck to the task well to take a runner up spot.

Another big player in the field could be EQUUS DREAMER who got off the mark for the first time in his hurdles on his penultimate run.

Place finishes in handicaps sandwiched that result. Equus Dreamer looks to have a lot to offer to chase and as long as he is tuned up after a long break, he could feature.

Others to note in his fascinating contest are ARIAN who won a month ago at Newton Abbot and comes up 1lb, and OURO BRANCO who brings place claims after a good start moving the fences including a win at Wincanton last winter.

Tip: CHINWAG 5/1

Ones to watch: Nada To Prada 10/3, Equus Dreamer 6/1

LOSSIEMOUTH comes in as a big contender for this handicap action on Wednesday. He was last in action 18 days ago, taking a win in an Ascot handicap.

The cheekpieces seemed to help him on the day, but Lossiemouth switched to the blinkers for the first time on Wednesday.

The trip looks ideal for him and he has a chance.

FAIRE PART SIVOLA was also a winner in his latest effort. He gets an extra 6lb to work with after claiming a 20f victory here at Ffos Las three weeks ago.

The rise looks fair and potentially low enough to be handled well by Faire Part Sivola.

Stepping up a little further in the trip could bring more out of him still.

The other shortlist selection is TO BE SURE, another that won his latest effort. That was on a longer 3m trip here at the venue 10 days ago.

To Be Sure will probably remain competitive and place claims are there, as he goes under a 7lb penalty for that recent success.


Ones to watch: To Be Sure 9/2, Lossiemouth 9/4

13;25 Ffos Las Maiden Hurdle Horse Racing Tips & Odds

Race Type: Class 4 maiden hurdle
Age: 4 year olds plus
Declared Runners: 14
Distance: 2m 4f

Race Preview

GRIS GRIS TOP is a shortlist contender having taken back to back runners up spots in a pointer and a bumper earlier this year.

He was sent out over the hurdles at the course and distance three weeks ago and showed a lot of promise to claim a place finish. More should follow.

TRANSFER FRIENDLY brings a little more experience to the table. There was a good third from him as a novice here at Ffos Las 10 days ago.

He looks to be heading in the right direction over the timbers and can get himself involved.

MEECHLANDS MAGIC looks interesting on his hurdles debut.

There was a good fourth at Newton Abbot in a national hunt flat race a month ago. He could have an impact on his hurdles debut.

GLANCING GlORY is another of the potential major players in this one. The former Point winner hasn’t been seen for over a year but could have the quality to get involved.


Ones to watch: Gris Gris Top 11/8, Meechlands Magic 25/1

Race Type: Class 5 handicap chase

Distance: 3m

GIVE US A SWIG picked up a victory at Worcester In July and there have been a couple of good efforts from him since then.

Gives Us A Swig was fifth on his chasing debut at Sedgefield 50 days ago.

It was a credible effort and suggests that there is more to come from him in this sphere.

TUDORS TREASURE picked up a victory over course and distance in the summer, benefitting from having fallen to a competitive mark.

After a shocker of a follow-up, Tudors Treasure was a close second back over course and distance 10 days ago.

He stays at the same mark but is not guaranteed to always bring his best.

FAIRLAWN FLYER makes his chasing debut on Wednesday. A key for his chances could be the extra distance that he takes on in this one.

There was a 3m success for him at Perth in September and shaped well at Carlisle on his latest.

GOLD CLERMONT is another that could feature strongly on her chasing debut if she’s turned up for her reappearance.

GATS AND CO could benefit from a course and distance effort 10 days ago.


Ones to watch: Fairlawn Flyer 6/1, Gats And Co 9/1

Race Type: Class 4 handicap chase
Age: 4 year olds plus
Declared Runners: 11
Distance: 4m

FOR JIM should take all the beating in this handicap chase at Hexham on Wednesday. He’s been thriving as of late.

It’s three wins in his last four and For Jim is sitting on a hattrick chance on Wednesday.

The latest of those wins happened at Hexham 39 days ago. That was a narrow score and Wednesday’s longer trip may make it a little easier on him.

WIGGLESWORTH may be worth revisiting with two wins in his last four.

He wasn’t right at all on his latest run when he failed to complete at Worcester a month ago. But based on the previous form, Wigglesworth warrants respect.

Entering the frame as no forlorn hope is PRINCE DUNDEE who opened the season with a score here at Hexham in the summer.

There was a nice return to form by him last time out as well. After a couple of indifferent efforts, Prince Dundee took a runner up spot at Kelso last month.

Tip: For Jim 7/2

Ones to watch: Prince Dundee 9/1, Wigglesworth 6/1

14:25 Hexham Handicap Chase Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 5 handicap chase
Age: 4 year olds plus
Declared Runners: 13
Distance: 2m

Race Preview

ROLLERRULER makes a return for a new year in midweek. He had seen his form drop at the end of last season.

Because of that, he returns on a pretty low mark which could see him enter the calculation.

IZZY’S CHAMPION picked up a victory at Musselburgh earlier this month and raised 5lb for that effort. That was very good form shown by him in that one and brings some solid claims to the table.

CHESTERVILLE went well at Sedgefield on his first run for a new yard last time out.

He didn’t have the stamina in him at the end of the day but went well for a long way. Chesterville has his sights lowered for this one and could be a big player.

Another shortlisted one is DONLADD who makes a chasing debut on Wednesday. Form from a win at Carlisle in a handicap hurdle aerie this year has been franked, and there was a decent return from him at Carlisle a couple of weeks ago to get some air in his lungs.


Ones to watch: Izzy’s Champion 4/1, Donladd 11/2
