A well fought battle saw Tom Scudamore drive Sleep Easy to victory as my NAP yesterday. A brave mention to Robbie Power and the brilliant Jett also. They were behind a rejuvenated Douvan at Clonmel in the Grade 2 Chase. This saw my Each-way grab second at 16/1.

Once again we turn to the statistics of our tips since we started four weeks ago, and a 27.14% strike rate is some feat. Currently our level stakes sit at +£25.04 to a £1 stake on every horse we choose. Find out who my picks are at the bottom.

Today was supposed to be a bumper day of racing, Grade 2 races, Cheltenham Festival Trials and the Glenfarclas Cross-Country race, but conditions are appalling.

The adverse weather has led to Cheltenham calling off their meeting today. The BHA announced that:

“Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle (G2) rescheduled to Cheltenham card on Saturday 16 November

Glenfarclas Cross Country Handicap Chase to be run at Cheltenham on Sunday 17 November”

The Gloucestershire town saw 40mm of rain fall in 18 hours over Wednesday evening, there was standing water on the track at 13:00 yesterday. There will be further inspections for Saturday’s and Sunday’s cards.

This means that we are left with Newcastle beginning at noon, where there are seven races to keep you entertained.

There is a meeting Southwell over the jumps starts at 12:50, and here there are six races and my NB runs in the 14:35.

These two meetings are followed up by the sole evening meeting over in Dundalk, Ireland. Horses from powerful connections all over the eight-race card here, including my NAP and Each Way shouts.

Here are my tips for today:

NAP: Cache Queen – 19:45 Dundalk

Beaten twice over different distances, back down to the ideal trip. Shane Foley takes up the ride for Adrian McGuinness and this filly should go well.

NB: Shantou View – 14:35 Southwell

An interesting runner for Harry Whittington, and a positive jockey booking in Daryl Jacob only reinforces that.

Each-Way: My Good Brother – 20:45 Dundalk

A well-raced ten-year-old gelding, who has a decent record on all weather surfaces (19%), between Laytown, Wolverhampton and here. An open race could see this six-time course winner go close.
