Race Favourite

The early favourite for this handicap hurdle on Thursday at Warwick is CALUM GILHOOLEY at 4/1* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 16:12 GMT Wednesday, 30th September 2020).

He is sitting on a hattrick having made a positive start over the hurdles. It has been back to back wins in novice events at Newton Abbot for him.

Calum Gilhooly was down in trip last time out and he found the going a little bit tougher to get the win. So back at a longer effort he is probably going to be more comfortable for what is his handicap debut.

UK Racing Odds & Tips

MISS HONEY RYDER may be the pick of the bunch however for this contest and she looks in a very competitive frame of mind.

She put in some very positive form at the end of last season, signing off with a win at Huntington.

She comes into handicapping for the first time and looks well positioned in the rating to launch an attack.

It’s enough to make her our pick at 13/2* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 16:12 GMT Wednesday, 30th September 2020).

UMNDENI is also worth a look in the market. He has come down in grade for this one and he is also a former course and distance winner.

Umndeni will get the cheekpieces on for the first time in this one as well, which could help him put together a bold run.

It’s a big field so we can look at one more for UK horse racing betting and that is BHUTAN. He is heading in the right direction at the moment and he scored at this distance last season at Ludlow.

Bhutan was third on his last run, digging through the mud at Bangor. There should be more on offer from him.

Race Type: Class 3 handicap chase

Distance: 2m 4f

Race Favourite

The race favourite for this is DENMEAD at 3/1* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 16:12 GMT Wednesday, 30th September 2020). This will be his first run for over a couple of months, last seen in a Stratford novice.

He made his chasing bow for that one and was fifth of seven in the effort. He will be making his handicap debut in this one and he looks to be on a workable mark.

Denmead did get a 17f win on the flat and having had that chase debut should at least have given him a good experience.

UK Racing Odds & Tips

NIGHTFLY has to overcome a long absence to come good in this one, but she should be in with a chance. She is on a good mark for this one and is fairly lightly raced.

The 9 year old has the ability at this level but it will be all about whether or not she can perform at her best after 10 months away.

COURT MASTER is an interesting one to keep an eye on because he will make his return after wind surgery.

Like most of these he has been away for a while, the last action that he had was at Cheltenham 8 months ago.

He did have a great run there, failing to add to back to back wins over the fences at Musselburgh and Newbury.

We think he’s worth a look at 4/1* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 16:12 GMT Wednesday, 30th September 2020).

Distance: 2m

Race Favourite

DARIYA is the 7/2 favourite for this hurdles action at Warwick* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 16:12 GMT Wednesday, 30th September 2020).

She has positioned herself for a shot at a hat-trick after wins at Stratford and Newton Abbot.

She was supremely comfortable in getting the former there and her second score was only three days later.

Naturally she is going up the ratings, but she is bang in form at the moment and there are strong claims here.

UK Racing Odds & Tips

PINK SHEETS should be a big player in this field after a very good season. She recently made her handicap debut over course and distance just over a week ago.

She scored a win there and that was the culmination of improving form. So she is going to be a big threat and she looks good enough to shrug off a 7lb penalty.

Pink Sheets takes our fancy at 4/1* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 16:12 GMT Wednesday, 30th September 2020).

PRINCESS T won on her appearance for the season and has really come into her own since the move to handicapping.

She got off the market in a handicap at Southwell in August before following up with a second place finish at Perth afterwards.

She’s right there in terms of competitiveness and there should be in the picture.

Race Favourite

It is WHELANS WAY who is the 5/1 favourite for this contest* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 16:12 GMT Wednesday, 30th September 2020). The most recent win that he secured was at Newbury in July.

Whelans Way was a beaten favourite on his last trip, taking sixth of a big field of 19 at Ascot on a 6f trip in September. He has a positive with James Doyle booked and place claims are there for him.

UK Racing Odds & Tips

This is a wide open contest and MAY REMAIN looks an interesting pick for it. He was narrowly beaten at Ascot on his last run.

It was only by a neck that he was beaten by and the one that beat him went on to almost gain another win.

So that franked May Remain’s form and with him being a fine consistent runner, he goes as our pick at 13/2* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 16:12 GMT Wednesday, 30th September 2020).

The other that we would consider watching for this one is GAMBON who delivered a win on his latest run.

That was at Chepstow when he secured a win over Eye Of The Water by a neck.

The race played out to his favour but it continued some consistent form that he has managed to find.

Race Favourite

PUER DE RIEN is the 13/8 favourite* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 16:12 GMT Wednesday, 30th September 2020).

He scored a reappearance a month ago when he returned to Uttoxeter. That was a switch to chasing after having looked average at best over the hurdles prior.

He simply forged clear to get that success at Uttoxeter and he looks just ripe for a good chase career.

He has taken a jump up 8lb in the ratings, but regardless of that he should still be a big player in this contest.

UK Racing Odds & Tips

TRUMPS BENEFIT looks to be a major player in this contest as well. He never got himself going at Cartmel recently.

But it is his form before that, usually a solid lock for place claims that really shows where he comes into this. He was placed at Bangor and Uttoxeter before being well held at Cartmel.

The other pick would have to be MINELLA EXAMINER who will be making his return for the first time since February.

He signed off with some good form, collecting a 3m win at Doncaster. In that same month he went back there and took a third place finish despite having gone up 9lb in the ratings.

Race Favourite

DANCING IN THE SKY is the 5/2 favourite here who makes the switch from chasing to the hurdles* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 16:12 GMT Wednesday, 30th September 2020).

He was out a week ago in chase action, collecting a win at Perth. He is off a lower mark for hurdling and because of that he has to be in the frame here.

It’s a 5lb lower mark that Dancing In The Sky is at for this one, so he needs some big respect and will be our pick for the race.

UK Racing Odds & Tips

FOOL TO CRY posted a win on his last run, making the most of the opportunity of having fallen through the ratings.

She got her win at Hexham over the hurdles at this very distance on that last run, delivering the win from 8/1. So she is worth keeping on side for this run.

The other that we will look at is VINNIE’S GETAWAY who will need a little bit of trust that he is going to be sharp and raring to go after 8 months away.

He was in great shape at the end of last season, including a runner up place in a novice hurdle at Taunton six months ago. This will be a handicap debut for him.

Race Favourite

The current market leader for this contest is ALWAYS FEARLESS at 4/1 odds* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 20:00 GMT on Wednesday, 30th September 2020).

A couple of weeks ago he was out over a longer trip, trying his hand at 10f which didn’t look right for him.

He still managed a credible 5th there, regardless. But he should be a keen player back at 1m and he is a former course winner as well.

But still, this looks a finely balanced handicap race and we feel that the favourite is well worth taking on.

UK Racing Odds & Tips

The big player for us in this contest is going to be KHAALIS who heads the field as our pick at 9/2* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 20:00 GMT on Wednesday, 30th September 2020).

He is unexposed, this being his third effort. But he scored over course and distance a couple of weeks ago, with plenty in the tank at the finish as well.

That was a win in a minor event and poses a big threat here.

The consistent SIDEREAL is the other to watch for this contest, and he has been lightly raced. This is another contender who has had a recent course and distance effort.

He was fourth over C&D three weeks ago. He just didn’t have much of a finish left in him.
