Tuesday’s UK racing tips come your way from Fakenham on 21 November 2023.
Race 1 – FRANCINA 13/10
FRANCINA (2) looks set to improve on her second of four efforts in a similar contest at Hereford representing a stable going well at present.
Circle Of Hope (1) is a daughter of the useful Yorgunnabelucky and wears cheekpieces for her racecourse debut. Of interest if popular in the market.
Talysh (4) is a daughter of G1 and dual G3 winner Linda’s Lad and warrants thought. Jackie Savage (3) profiles nicely being a daughter of the two-time G1 winning Jack Hobbs. Respect racing resumed.
Race 2 – GUGUSS COLLONGES 10/11
GUGUSS COLLONGES (3) jumped proficiently making all to record an easy 6l victory at Stratford in latest gaining her second chase success. Another bold bid from the front seems imminent.
Both chase triumphs achieved by Call Of The Loon (1) have come in this grade and he cannot be underestimated dropping back to this level.
Le Tueur (2) reappeared from a lengthy absence eight days ago to finish fourth of six over course and distance. Danger. Bertie’s Bandana (4) looks well held on all previous form so is best watched.
Race 3 – BOLEYN BOY 3/1
BOLEYN BOY (2) returned from nearly five months off to open his hurdling account with a 4l win at Huntingdon. Placed over course and distance previously and appears reasonably treated at the weights to launch another bold bid.
Star Legend (1) kept on well landing a maiden hurdle here eight days ago. Steps up in trip and is a must for the shortlist.
For Gina (4) has won and placed from two attempts over this distance. In the mix. Redbridge Rosie (5) may place at best unless proving popular in the market.
Race 4 – MY GIFT TO YOU 6/5
MY GIFT TO YOU (2) easily justified favouritism on fences debut at Worcester. Returns to this sphere following three hurdle runs where he twice placed. Major player.
After a series of placings School For Scandal (5) finally got off the mark at Taunton securing a 4l victory. Returns after six months off and rates a key contender.
Jacks Touch (1) delivered an encouraging initial chase effort at Huntingdon and might take a step forward. Calidad (3) is best watched on his first start for a new yard.
Race 5 – PRETENDING 15/8
PRETENDING (5) made the frame in four of five hurdle starts and reappears after a long lay-off. Previously won resumed and interesting to see if the money comes for her.
Ip Up (4) landed a handicap hurdle in France. Subsequently placed in two from three hurdle runs including most recently tackling the trip at Ayr. Shortlist.
Ludlow victor Georgi Girl (3) returned from a substantial break representing new stable to finish third of ten at Hereford. Feared. The reappearing Mrs Grimley (2) cannot be ruled out dropping back down to her last winning journey.
Race 6 -EXTRAORDINARY MAN 23/20
EXTRAORDINARY MAN (2) reappeared at Hereford to secure his first chase win. Climbs in grade however is open to further progress.
Veteran Templier (3) has secured victory four times when chasing though jockey James Best is on a long losing streak so caution is advised.
Up For Appeal (1) landed a handicap hurdle three runs back at Stratford. Outpaced on chase debut at Hereford in latest. Could be thereabouts dropping back down in trip. Twenty-three race maiden Millies Mite (5) is best watched unless the market speaks in his favour.
Race 7 – TRAMUNTANA 5/6
Just the four runners line-up in this flat race. TRAMUNTANA (3) maintains a nice enough profile and is considered.
Shamardal Star (2) and Sennen Cove (1) are both tongue-tied for debut and any moves in the market are to be noted. The hooded Pollywiggle Quay (4) is a daughter of listed and G1 winning Black Sam Bellamy so could be up to triumphing in a race of this kind.
