We didn’t add any racing tips to the website yesterday, but we did send out 7/1 winner LOUGH KENT to subscribers. Brian Hughes always had James Moffatt’s eight year old travelling well, and he ran out a comfortable winner in the end.

In yesterdays first race at Newcastle, 1/9 shot LISTEN TO THE MAN was well and truly beaten by CATCHAMAT. When you see one at such short odds over hurdles, it’s like bookmakers are saying he’s around 1/33 if completing the course. It actually defies belief when such horses are beaten. Over at Kempton COEUR DE LION was another short priced (1/3) victim, albeit in our opinion winner DON BERSY had a decent chance on paper. In any case, if you need a wake up call about taking silly prices, that should have done the trick!
Chepstow 2.00 LOVENORMONEY 7/4
It will be interesting to see if FLY CAMP handles this heavy ground. Afterall, his wins came on good and yielding. Furthermore, his breeding doesn’t make us believe he will want it this testing. Nevertheless, Nicky Henderson certainly knows what he’s doing, and the seven year old has decent form figures. With that said we would put Donald McCains runner MR McGO in front of the Henderson runner, because he’s sure to appreciate conditions and he’s decent odds. Still, we have no hesitation in recommending LOVENORMONEY. Warren Greatrex’s six year old is by the mud loving producer Winged Love. He was also an impressive winner of a point to point on soft ground. In receipt of six pounds from the other principals, he’s simply got to be the bet!
Chepstow 2.30 ALLCHILLEDOUT 11/2
You could find something against everything in this race, but something has to win. It’s probably fair to say ALLCHILLEDOUT is an all or nothing type of character, and he certainly ran dismally last time out. Nevertheless, he’s bounced back in the past to win on heavy ground, and he comes from a stable in fine form. The handicapper didn’t find it within himself to drop ALBERT D’OLIVATE’S mark after finishing a tailed off sixth last time out. In our opinion BUGSIE MALONE was beaten too far in a messy race at Newbury, and KRACKATOA KING has a terrible win record. With nothing else appealing, we shall take our chance with the Tizzard horse!
Chepstow 3.30 TARA BRIDGE 7/1
AFTER HOURS has a lot in his favour here, because he likes this type of ground and he’s a course winner. However, while the favourite ran three solid races since sent chasing, the fact is he didn’t win any of them. Furthermore, he was 3/1 or less in all those races, and to be fair he was beaten by a good margin last time out. Despite being a nine year old, TARA BRIDGE doesn’t have many miles on the clock. Chris Gordon’s runner showed enough on his seasonal debut and his first race over fences to be of interest here. He should have come on for that run and strip fitter today. And, he’s actually 8 pounds lower than at this stage of last season. The selection is best suited by this ground, and with Sam Twiston Davies taking the ride he’s got to be great value at 7/1.
