The only Jumps card for Wednesday comes from Fakenham and I have two betting tips for you to have a look at, which I’m hoping will get us off to a really good start to November.
Later this month there will be far more to look forward to, but the highlight for me is the Paddy Power meeting at Cheltenham, which is just under three weeks away. It’s a meeting that I always target and I’ll be bringing you full previews for all three days.
You’ll also get to meet my new wingmen, Jaime Wren and Scotty Ruderham, who will also be appearing in my Countdown To Cheltenham series. Of course, we have plenty of good racing before Cheltenham though, so let’s get started with my tips for tomorrow.
We’ve teamed up with BzeeBet to bring you a great offer. When you sign up with this cool new bookie as a new customer and bet £10, you'll get a £10 bonus bet to use in any way you want.
The track at Fakenham is a tricky left-handed one. It’s only about a mile in circumference and it’s almost square in shape, so the run-ins are very short and the turns are very sharp. Many jockeys also claim that the ground conditions are often much tougher than the official going suggests.
The Maiden Hurdle looks a decent opener on the racecard and Roger Pol sets the standard for the Jamie Snowden team. I caught up with Jamie a few weeks ago and he actually gave me Roger Pol as his Novice Hurdler to follow, so he obviously expects to see plenty from him as we go through the season.
So, on this occasion I’m siding with Call The Dance, from the Nicky Henderson yard, who looks to be a really nice mare. She’ll need to be smart to beat Roger Pol on her first start of the season, but she was seriously impressive in a Bumper at Southwell back in April and she certainly looked the part that day. She is open to loads of improvement over this trip and I’m willing to give her a chance on her first start over Hurdles.
Lucy Wadham’s Brandisova did well over fences to finish her season last year, but I think the unexposed Regarde is the one to side with here. Especially so as he has fitness on his side following his recent win at Huntingdon where he made his Chase debut.
That was his first start over the three-mile trip and even though he didn’t beat much on paper, he was very impressive visually and looked pretty smart too, so I think he can take another step forward here. With the nature of this track, the fitness edge may prove vital here and if Gavin Sheehan can give him a nice positive ride again, then we should see him in the winner’s enclosure tomorrow.
