Three meetings in England and one Irish for Racing fans to make note of this Tuesday, and the action comes thick and fast.
Home of the Irish Grand National later in the year, Fairyhouse has 8 races today after yesterdays card having to be abandoned due to waterlogging on the course, the going is Heavy.
Henry De Bromhead’s Honeysuckle heads the market in the 11:55, some say the mare is the best in training at this moment, she looks to make it 6 wins from 6 starts.
The three English meetings have 7 races from Huntingdon, and 6 from both Lingfield and Hereford.
The Cambridgeshire course starts first at 12:40, Lingfield is underway at 12:50 and Hereford has the later start time of 13:30.
NAP – Ronald Pump, 14:25 @ Fairyhouse
Bolted up last time out at this course, has form over further distance as this 2m5f will take some getting on the heavy surface. Taking on two shorted priced horses from top stables but jockey Adam Short’s 3lb claim could help him get past the winning post first in this beginners chase.
NB – Highly Prized, 13:40 @ Huntingdon
In-form rider Ben Jones takes to the saddle for this one. Racing Post only rate this horse 1lb lower than the even-money favourite, Sebastopol, who is giving up over a stone in weight to High Prized. Jones has a 5lb claim to add, he won’t have this much longer has he keeps lifting home winners.
Each Way – Cesar Collonges, 14:50 @ Lingfield
Jockey Adam Wedge and Trainer Evan Williams have teamed up again on this one for Owners Mr & Mrs Rucker. The horse has not run for 249 days but has some useful form to go by, winning a handicap chase on boxing day last year at Market Rasen. Goes hurdling again today, should beat a few of the others across the line.
