Day two of Kempton's Christmas Festival may not feature a Grade One race, but viewers have several excellent handicaps and two Grade Two to enjoy. Chepstow's card, sadly, was lost to Storm Bella, but we're hopeful that ITV will be able to show some of the action from day two of Leopardstown's Christmas Festival to fill in the gaps.

We've taken a look at each of Sunday's ITV races and picked out our best betting tips.

ITV Racing Tips - Sunday 27th December

Race 1 - Wayward Lad Novices' Chase Tips


Shishkin1:20pm Kempton Ladbrokes Wayward Lad Novices' Chase (Grade 2) 2mGET 1/3 HERE

With just four runners in the field, I don't think there's anything to be gained by betting against SHISHKIN. Nicky Henderson's star jumped nicely here on his chasing debut, and will only have improved for that outing. His stranglehold on the 2021 Arkle Challenge Trophy betting is only going to get stronger.

Race 2 - Mares' Handicap Hurdle Tips


Molly Ollys Wishes1:55pm Kempton Play Ladbrokes 5-A-Side On Football Mares' Handicap Hurdle (Class 2) 3mGET 5/1 HERE

I really fancied MOLLY OLLYS WISHES to win a Mares' Handicap Hurdle at Cheltenham's International Meeting. Sadly, Dan Skelton decided late on not to run his six-year-old on very soft ground, but I'd be surprised if conditions at Kempton eased further than soft, so she should take her chance.

Having run into traffic problems at a crucial stage behind The White Mouse, Harry Skelton's mount proved herself well handicapped with a comfortable victory at Hereford. Molly Ollys Wishes has been pushed five pounds up the handicap for that performance, but I think there's still wiggle-room off her new mark, and this step up in distance should suit.

Race 3 - Desert Orchid Chase Tips


Altior2:30pm Kempton Ladbrokes Desert Orchid Chase (Grade 2) 2mGET 8/13 HERE

For persons gambling outside Great Britain, Ladbrokes is licensed (ref 010, 012) by the Government of Gibraltar and regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner.

Duc Des Genievres was handed an easy lead at Cheltenham, and was flattered by his position behind Put The Kettle On. Rouge Vif really needs good ground to be at his best, and Sceau Royal isn't up to this sort of level over fences.

In short, I think ALTIOR is going to win fairly comfortably. When I say comfortably, I don't think this will be a romp. Nicky Henderson's returning star may appear to make hard work of it, but he'll get the job done in the end, and 8/13 isn't the worst price in the world for a horse who's still head-and-shoulders above the competition.

Race 4 - Handicap Chase Tips

You don't often see Rich Ricci's colours running in Britain, but I'm sure the charismatic American owner will have both eyes on Kempton, as ROYALE PAGAILLE has an excellent chance of building on that victory at Haydock.

Venetia Williams' six-year-old was the outsider of four that day, but looked much the best horse in the end, beating Espoir De Romay by seven lengths. Despite beating a progressive rival with ease, the handicapper has only upped Royal Pagaille five pounds to 140, and the softening ground at Kempton certainly bolsters his already strong claims.
