ITV Racing Tips - Saturday 27th February

Race 1 - Pendil Novices' Chase Tips


TAMAROC DU MATHAN looked a classy chaser in the making when winning at Wincanton on his chasing debut, and didn't run badly behind Arkle favourite Shishkin at Kempton.

Ga Law boasts some decent form too, but I think the favourite is the classier of the two, he'll stay this trip well and likes good ground. Gavin Sheehan has to carry three pounds extra on his back too.

Race 2 - Hever Sprint Stakes Tips

Moss Gill finished third in the Nunthorpe last season, and boasts a solid strike record on the all-weather. However, at the prices, I'd rather take an each-way punt on LORD RIDDIFORD.

John Quinn's six-year-old has won five of his 13 all-weather starts, and travels to Lingfield on the back of a smart victory at Wolverhampton. There may only be two-places available, but he looks a decent value bet at 7/1.

Race 3 - Adonis Hurdle Tips


Tritonic will look to enhance his Triumph Hurdle claims in this competitive Grade Two. Honneur D'Ajonc and Casa Loupi aren't without their supporters, and there are a couple of interesting debutantes to respect too.

Race 4 - Winter Derby Tips


Father Of Jazz has justified very short prices on his last three outings, and his latest win here at Lingfield was very impressive. However, the best seasonal form belongs to FELIX, so I'm surprised to see Marco Botti's charge sitting second in the betting.

Felix flew home from the rear to beat 114-rated Bangkok at Wolverhampton. Bangkok gained revenge in the Winter Derby Trial, where Felix took a little longer to get rolling at the rear, and came up half-a-lenght short.

Hollie Doyle's mount has twice finished ahead of Forest Of Dean, and is rated six-pounds higher than Father Of Jazz. He's my idea of the winner.

Race 5 - Dovecote Novices' Hurdle Tips

Cape Gentleman makes the trip over from Ireland to take on the British. Emmet Mullins' charge was only an 8/1 shot in the Grade One Nathaniel Lacy, but was pulled-up after failing to fire. Both his outings over hurdles have come on heavy ground, over 20 and 22 furlong trips, so I'm not too sure whether two miles on good ground will suit.

I've been really taken with ATHOLL STREET this season. Paul Nicholls' six-year-old looked very green and novicey when winning on debut. Harry Cobden then ground his rivals into submission second time out, powering clear from the front to win by 16-lengths under a penalty.

There's plenty more to come from Atholl Street, and I'm sure he'll make up into a lovely novice chaser in the coming months. He's the one to beat.

Race 6 - Vertem Eider Handicap Chase


Crosspark won the last renewal of the Eider back in 2019, and has looked in good form so far this season, finishing second on all four of his starts. Only four horses in the last 20 years have carried more than 11-08 to victory, so the top-weight may have his work cut-out.

I like the chances of BIG RIVER, who's dropped down to an appealing mark of 139 following a couple of lengthy defeats this season. Lucinda Russell's eleven-year-old has twice placed in the Ultima at the Cheltenham Festival off higher marks than this. He's a thorough stayer and a very experience handicapper, the perfect profile for a race like this.

Race 7 - Close Brothers Handicap Chase Tips


Colin Tizzard has endured a terrible season so far. However, there's no denying SLATE HOUSE is exceptionally well-handicapped running off just 148, and his return run at Wincanton offered plenty of encouragement.

Capeland had too many gears in the closing stages, but Slate House jumped and travelled well for the most part. An error at the last stopped Jonjo O'Neill's mount in his tracks, but on the whole, it was a solid performance.

Slate House won the Kauto Star around this track last season, and will carry just 11-02 to post. This is hugely competitive, but at 10/1, Tom Scudamore's mount offers plenty of each-way appeal.
