Tippin' Jimmy gives us his best bets from the start of the week.
12:30 Ffos Las - Hurricane Rita
Olly Murphy thinks this mare is very well handicapped and she could go one better following her second place finish last month. She typically does a lot better on this ground, and ran well on quicker at Towcester. She has gone up 2lb, but can still have a bit in hand for her trip to Wales.
1:40 Musselburgh - Vino's Choice ew
Tom Scudamore rode this horse up in Scotland in his bumper before he subsequently changed hands to Lucinda Russell, who's partner is Tom's dad Peter. He clearly thought highly of this horse and there must be a bit more after two poor efforts at Kelso and Carlisle. He is a big price here and could go very well here.
2:35 Wolverhampton - Ballymore Castle
Richard Fahey must have some confidence as this horse drops in grade this afternoon. He is the best here on ratings and deserves to win this type of race in the Midlands today. He should have a very good chance this afternoon.
3:30 Plumpton - Hideaway Vic
I backed The Russian Doyen quite confidently on this horses debut, and he finished ahead of him at Wincanton. The form of that race should work out pretty strong, and the horse I backed before since won on his hurdles debut. He is a strong big horse and will do very well, I expect an improved effort here.
3:45 Ffos Las - A Book Of Intrigue
Fergal O'Brien rates this bumper horse as one of his better ones, and he makes his debut this afternoon. He is bred well, and can run a big race like a lot of horses have from the yard. He has an exciting future ahead and can run well.
