Betting Bias Ten To Follow Selections

1. Sprinter Sacre
2. Big Buck’s
Their festival races carry bonus points and they are likely to go through the season unbeaten. The bankers of the stable.

3. Oscar Whiskey
Targeting a third Aintree Hurdle and will be difficult to beat in that race. He won four races last season and is likely to be campaigned in the same manner.

4. First Lieutenant
Has a fair chance in the Hennessy but even if he fails at Newbury there are plenty of weak 3-mile chases in Ireland he can win.

5. Flemenstar
No horse won more races in Ireland than he did last season. A potential Gold Cup candidate, he could rack up a series of victories before taking the big one at Cheltenham.

6. Cue Card
Put in an excellent performance to win the Haldon Gold Cup, enough to make him a lively contender for the King George. Has the option of dropping back in trip for the Ryanair Chase at the Festival.

7. Zarkandar
Looks the one to beat in the International Hurdle. Win that and he is on course for the Champion Hurdle in which he was 5th last year.

8. Zaidpour
Won four races in a row last season and acted as a good back-up to Hurricane Fly - winning easy Grade 2 races in Ireland. Adaptable in trip he could mop up several 20k races over the winter.

9. Simonsig
I’ve generally steered clear of novices because it is difficult to judge how they will progress but Simonsig looks the exception. He was terrific when winning at the Cheltenham Festival and if he follows in the footsteps of Nicky Henderson’s Sprinter Sacre, he could collect three wins on the way to the Arkle.

10. Arvika Ligeonniere
To beat the crowd you need something a bit different in your stable and I hope my star turn is Arvika Ligeonniere. He’s struggled with injury but proved his talent when romping home at Punchestown in May. He is a classy individual and if he stays fit he could win the RSA Chase.

Tips & Advice

Lingfield Tips: Uramazin

Previously a smart performer but hasn’t won for a long time. Showed signs of life when a fair third at Wolverhampton.

Southwell Tips: Wimboldsley

Closed in a rapid 22.3s at Lingfield despite racing in a class 6 handicap. Step up in trip and switch to a more galloping track should suit.

Market Movers: Rezwaan

Rezwaan hasn't shown much form of late but is a previous course and distance winner and has slipped to a handy mark. He's been backed from 8/1 into 9/4 to win the 4.45 Kempton.

Kempton Tips: Valbchek

Ran well last week despite finishing closer to the far rail than is ideal and should come on for the run.

Market Movers: Razor Wind

With a race record that reads 32212 you would expect Razor Wind to be in the shake-up for the 2.35 Lingfield. He's now odds-on having opened at odds against.

Kempton Tips: Temple Road

Has been running well and the slight ease in grade combined with a return to Kempton can see him win again.
