Seven Saturday Selections with Warwick Classic Chase Card Headlining Horse Racing

There are Warwick betting tips aplenty for Saturday’s Classic Chase card, which contains three graded races and more. Supporting the action in the West Midlands are races from Market Rasen in Lincolnshire, so see who our experts like.

Warwick betting tips – Amoola Gold up for the Edward Courage Cup

In the 2m Edward Courage Cup Handicap Chase at Warwick (13:15), Amoola Gold can go one better than last time out and get back to winning ways. Trained locally by Dan Skelton, this eight-year-old won his first two starts of the campaign at Wetherby and then in Listed company at Ascot.

The form of his game short-head success over Ibleo in the latter looks good. The runner-up had previously chased home subsequent Rowland Meyrick winner Canelo and went on to land a handicap at Sandown two weeks ago. Only First Flow, who took the Castleford Chase and has an entry in the Grade 1 Clarence House, proved a neck too good for Amoola Gold last time out.

That was also at Ascot in the Hurst Park Handicap Chase. Besides First Flow coming out and winning since, the third home Capeland has got back on the scoresheet at Wincanton. A 5lb rise in the weights looks fair for Amoola Gold on that basis, and he is better treated on Skelton’s local track at odds of 5/2 with William Hill than main market rival Sky Pirate, who has a 12lb hike for his last win.

Next Destination can follow-up in Hampton Novices’ Chase

Although the 3m Grade 2 Hampton Novices’ Chase (13:50) has cut up, Next Destination appeals to defy a penalty and win the three-runner contest. Trained by Paul Nicholls, who helped himself to a seven-timer across the UK last Saturday, this Irish import to Dicheat was a top class novice hurdler when with Willie Mullins.

Next Destination has spent a lot of time on the sidelines, but proved he retained plenty of ability with a successful chase bow at Newbury last time out. That came in the Grade 2 John Francome during the Winter Carnival, where he stayed on well after leading two out.

Although Next Destination has to give Fiddlerontheroof 5lb, the Colin Tizzard yard just hasn’t been firing all season. Nicholls will want to make up for lost time with this Malcolm Denmark owned nine-year-old. Next Destination is 5/4 with Boylesports to follow-up and cement his RSA Chase claims.

Make Me A Believer looks good in Leamington

The other Grade 2 among Warwick betting tips is the 2m 5f Ballymore Leamington Novices’ Hurdle (14:25). Make Me A Believer tackles old Irish point rival Adrimel here with preference for the former at the weights.

Trained by the in-form David Pipe, this six-year-old Presenting gelding has won a bumper and a Cheltenham novice hurdle in three starts under Rules. The form of his Lingfield defeat by Bear Ghylls has been franked by Nicky Martin’s charge winning his next two starts to complete a hat-trick.

Make Me A Believer gets weight from Adrimel, which could be crucial now stepping back up in trip. He won going away at Cheltenham and the extra half-a-mile or so shouldn’t be any problem. Odds of 4/1 with Bet365 about the chances of Make Me A Believer following-up thus appeal most.

Le Breuil worth chancing each-way in Classic Chase

In the the feature 3m 5f Grade 3 Classic Chase (15:00), Le Breuil could well give a better account of himself than when fifth in last year’s race. Trainer Ben Pauling has hit some form and his nine-year-old races off 8lb lower than 12 months ago.

There have also been signs that Le Breuil, who won the 2019 National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham, is shaping better. He has placed fourth and third on two starts this season, his best performances since that big Grade 2 win as a novice. A case can obviously made for a few in the Classic Chase, but this horse has slipped down the weights to what could be a workable mark.

Le Breuil fits the bill as a dour and thorough stayer, but has a nice racing weight of 10st 6lb going for him too. He meets last year’s runner-up, Captain Chaos, off 10lb better terms. With the 2020 third Petite Power running from out of the weights, Le Breuil is the solid each-way value at 6/1 with Unibet for the Classic Chase.

Come On Teddy the Pertemps Punt

In the 3m 1f Pertemps Qualifier (15:35), Cheltenham handicap winner Come On Teddy can go in again over hurdles. Trained by Tom George, this seven-year-old does have a 7lb rise in the weights to contend with but that looks fair.

He beat On The Blind Side, a subsequent runner-up at Grade 2 level in the rearranged Relkeel Hurdle at Kempton last Saturday, by 5 1/2 lengths. There could be more progress to come frome Come On Teddy, who must run well here to qualify himself for the Pertemps Final at Cheltenham,

A current mark of 134 may not be enough to get a place in the Festival race. Connections clearly mean business again, as Sam Twiston-Davies takes the ride once more. Come On Teddy is 9/2 with Betfair to defy the handicapper and back-up his Cheltenham success here.

Market Rasen betting tips – De Boinville double appeals

Aside from our Warwick betting tips, there are punts to be had at Market Rasen. Two of jockey Nico de Boinville’s three rides on the card are of interest. Firstly, in the 2m 7f hurdle race (14:40), the aforementioned On The Blind Side is quickly turned out after chasing home McFabulous in the Relkeel last Satruday.

A repeat of that effort, or when filling the same spot behind Come On Teddy at Cheltenham, should be enough to win this. On The Blind Side gives 4lb all-round, but should be more than capable of doing that for trainer Nicky Henderson.

De Boinville’s final ride at Market Rasen is for Irish handler Willie Mullins on Grangee in the Listed mares’ bumper (15:15). This five-year-old won a Galway INH Flat race eased down in October, so was value for more than the winning margin of 6 1/2 lengths.

Mullins won this race last year with Panic Attack. If this mare turns up despite wintry weather and travel restrictions, then she looks worth putting in a double with On The Blind Side. That works out at just over 17/2 with William Hill here.
