Navan handicap hurdle, 2m4f
HMS Seahorse is making its first start since finishing in midfield in Ireland’s Cesarewitch at the Curragh in September. Recent Cork winner Lucky Max holds the main claims, while Carrigeen Lotus has been a consistent performer and should also be considered.
SPOTLIGHT TIP: Spyglass Hill
Won a handicap cap to chase 140 last quarter; best hunting form on 2m4f on heavy; cheeks on
Huge daily boosts only at BetUK Handicap, 1m2f
Paris Lights made a winning debut in a stable for George Boughey over course and distance last month and could follow his handicap debut. Track and Journey Winner Obsidian Knight and the quad-seeking Dream Harder are also interesting.
SPOTLIGHT TIP: gun
Pulled too hard on 1m4f here last; fairly treated and not discounted at 1m2f
Ardmulchan handicap hurdle, 2m4f
The Mark Molloy-trained Go Boy got off to a good start overcoming obstacles at the Limerick Christmas meeting and should be a contender again. Ms Paisley makes her Gordon Elliott backyard debut as Penny Jar bids for a career quadruple.
SPOTLIGHT TIP: go boy
Beat an in-form multiple point-to-point winner on his stable/hurdle debut, strong contender
Spreadex Sports gets £40 Handicap bonus, 7f
Lord Rapscallion was in excellent form towards the end of last year with two wins at Chelmsford and a bid for a hat-trick. Poetic Force also brings some recent win form to the table, while fellow previous course and distance winner Miss Bella Brand was a good second time last time out.
SPOTLIGHT TIP: secret strength
0-6 on AW but drew attention to 6f here on his return; one to take seriously
Racing Again February 12 (Pro/Am) INH Flat Race, 2m
Willie Mullins has a strong hand in this one with point-to-point winner It’s For Me for his Rules debut. He also saddles Criminal Mischief, who has a real chance, while Ballystone is well supported in the market by trainer Thomas Gibney.
SPOTLIGHT TIP: ballystone
£120,000 purchase after 2nd point and this form works; Wholestone’s half-brother
talkSPORT Winter Oaks Fillies Handicap, 1m2f
Al Agaila has made rapid progress in the past month, including winning the trial for it, and is the big race mount of James Doyle, who arrives from Meydan. Makinmedoit and Tequilamockingbird, second and third in the event, also take their place, while Morgan Fairy won the track on her last start.
SPOTLIGHT TIP: Al Agila
Hacked on C&D Handicap Beginnings and Even an 11lb Increase Doesn’t Seem Enough to Stop It
Wilkinstown Beginner Run, 3m
Since finishing seventh ahead of Easy Vega on his debut in a Leopardstown bumper, Tenzing has finished in the top three in his five starts. He is a top performer in this contest, but Shantreusse and the constant Mahler Mission are also of interest.
SPOTLIGHT TIP: Tenzing
Good run behind 2 good prospects on his chase debut and big run when 2nd later; second string
BetUK Over 40,000 races streamed live Handicap, 5f
Silky Wilkie has finished second in three of his last four starts and could be handicapped to do well. The Bell conductor couldn’t conjure up his quadruple last time out but could be in better shape for it, while Lord Riddiford is a former course and distance winner.
SPOTLIGHT TIP: The conductor
Dive shape last time but type to bounce and well shaped to attack
Gormanlough Handicap Chase, 3m
Both Sanibel Island and Diegos Way have looked strong in recent appearances and are at the top of the market. Spancil Hill is a three-time winner on the fences so should be considered for more success.
SPOTLIGHT TIP: Spancil Hill
Three times winner of jumps and returning to form the latest; well processed on the old form
