Thursday’s Racing Tips

Time: 12:25 Course: Sedgefield

Name: Horn Cape  Advice: 0.50pt EW (5/2 Bet365)

Form: 13824  Trainer: Ben Haslam  Jockey: Jack Hogan

Summary: HORN CAPE has course and distance form, having won here back in March and returns 7 lbs higher than that victory.

They are taking a slight drop in trip for this conditional jockey handicap hurdle over the 2m1f.

Jack Hogan has been on board Horn Cape for both his career wins and knows this horse well.

Horn Cape also likes the softer conditions, with both his wins coming on soft and heavy ground and likes to get similar ground conditions on Thursday.

Time: 14:25  Course: Newbury

Name: Bold Endeavour Advice: 0.50pt EW (7/1 Most firms)

Form: 13P522  Trainer: Nicky Henderson  Jockey: Nico de Boinville

Summary: Nicky Henderson sends BOLD ENDEAVOUR to Newbury on Thursday for this handicap hurdle over the 3m.

Bold Endeavour is a multiple winner, but has been 2ns in his last 2 races and they look to go one better.

Nico de Boinville has a good recent around Newbury, with a 27% strike rate and should give another good showing tomorrow.

There doesn’t seem to be much pace int he race, so Bold Endeavour could decide to go forward or sit just behind the leaders and move forward in the home straight.

Time: 18:30  Course: Chelmsford

Name: Nouveaux Advice: 0.50pt EW (7/1 Most firms)

Form: 3431  Trainer: Rae Guest  Jockey: Callum Sheppard

Summary: NOUVEAUX won over course and distance just under a month ago and bids for a win double.

They have been raised 4 lbs for that win but I don’t think that will stop them going in again on Thursday.

Both trainer and jockey have decent records at Chelmsford over the 5 furlongs. They will need to make sure they jump out the gates sharply and get up with the leaders – but if they can, they will be hard to beat.
