ITV Racing Tips Tips - Friday 1st December


1:15pm Newbury - Fillies' Juvenile Hurdle Tips


Wodhooh stands out in terms of both form and ratings. Gordon Elliott's raider is the chosen ride of Jack Kennedy, his only ride of the day at Newbury. As odds-on shots go, 4/6 isn't a terrible price.

Personally, I'd rather look for an each-way alternative and Alan King's hurdling debutante, EZMERELLDA (20/1) piques my interest. This daughter of Intello ran up to a modest level on the flat, placing fourth in a 12-furlong contest at Wolverhampton on her second handicap start last month. Her half-brother is two-from-two in bumpers for Gary Moore and Ezmerellda certainly looks to have enough scope to prosper over hurdles.

1:50pm Newbury - John Francome Novices' Chase Tips


Challow Hurdle winner, Hermes Allen makes his debut over fences in this Grade Two. Marble Sands jumped well when making a winning chase debut at Ayr and Lorna Fowler's raider, Colonel Mustard adds some extra spice to the contest.

NICKLE BACK (10/3) has been hugely impressive since being switched to fences at the start of the season. Sarah Humphrey's seven-year-old has registered two emphatic front-running victories at Warwick and Stratford, jumping superbly on both occasions. It's a long way home at Newbury, but the jumping experience Nickle Back has gathered will stand him in good stead around this testing track. James Best's mount could be very hard to peg back.

2:25pm Newbury - Coral Racing Club Handicap Chase Tips


Having proven his stamina with a fine third-place finish in the Grand Sefton last month, FRERO BANBOU (3/1) looks well-placed to claim an overdue victory.

Venetia Williams' eight-year-old hasn't won since the start of 2022, when he scored at Lingfield off a mark of 134. Frero Banbou has run very well on decent ground on a number of occasions and finished a good third behind Il Ridoto on his only previous outing around Newbury. Williams' horses remain in red-hot form and Charlie Deutsch's mount is handicapped well enough to win off his current mark of 133.

3:35pm Newbury - Coral 'Racing-Super-Series' For Free Handicap Hurdle Tips


The hat-trick-seeking Hyland will have to give plenty of weight to several progressive young staying hurdlers. The one I'm most interested in backing is ED KEEPER (6/1), who progressed with each of his three maiden hurdle starts, winning nicely at Bangor in March.

On his handicap debut at Ascot last month, Sam Thomas' five-year-old was touched off by the strong-staying Rebel Intentions, who was getting 23 pounds from Sam Twiston-Davies' mount at the weights. Ed Keeper has been upped six pounds for that runner-up finish, but he remains highly-progressive and his breeding suggests that three miles is well within his wheelhouse.
