NAP OF THE DAY: Flying Tiger, (1340 Huntingdon), 1pt win, 12/1:
A cracking handicap for a Tuesday afternoon at Huntingdon with warm favourite Sebastopol obviously the one to beat despite a big weight rise. There is masses of early pace in this race and that could give it the feel of a high quality affair. Flying Tiger is a regular in big handicaps since his last win a few years ago in Cheltenham’s Fred Winter. He is clearly hard to win with, but this looks likely to be run to suit and a good test of whether the switch to Philip Hobbs has rekindled the old flame.
The Crooner, (1330 Hereford), 5/1: Trainer Venetia Williams can hit amazing runs of form, usually in the muddy midwinter. Her horses look a bit more forward this year and her horses look like they are hitting full stride. If that is the case then this ex-French recruit could make huge strides on his modest Spring form. Likes to race prominently, and this is a good track for getting loose on the lead.
Jurys Out, (1400 Hereford), 11/4: if we are buying the Venetia form theory then we may as well double up. This big chasing type with soft ground winning form is an archetypal Venetia inmate, and with the switch now to fences he is likely to show huge improvement.
Baupame (1445 Fairyhouse), 5/4: Much the best of these these over hurdles. Has been busy chasing the divisions best, but now tries fences and can break his duck on chasing debut in a race transferred from yesterday’s abandoned card.
