Horse Racing Preview - Uttoxeter & Navan - 26th November 2017

Today’s horse racing preview selections come from Uttoxeter and Navan with a selection from each meeting.


14.15 Uttoxeter – Uttoxeter & Cheadle Voice Handicap Chase (18.1f)

Kerry Lee’s Krackatoa King will relish stepping back up in trip this afternoon, his last run three weeks ago saw him finish a wayward eighteen lengths behind eventual winner Daklondike of David Pipes, he took a long time to really get into the race and probably lost it a long way from home, this extra quarter of a mile should give him that opportunity to grind this out under Dicky Johnson this afternoon.

One that I do fear is Colin Tizzard’s Bears Rails. he has failed to finish on his past two outings and looks up against it on paper, however with the booking of Aidan Coleman you would probably give him a bigger chance than many in this race. The old boy in the race and bottom weight is Brian Llewellyn’s Hansupfordetroit who actually is still capable of running a solid race around this company this afternoon. He does have a bit to find at the weights with a few of these, however if he handles the longer trip he could out run those odds.

KRACKATOA KING : 3pt Win @ 11/10 (BOG)


15.35 Navan – Coolmore N.H Sires Irish EBF Mares Flat Race {Listed) (16f)

A few stand out stats here for me which revolves around the jockey bookings, there are a few coming into this that have had a shuffle around on bookings, let’s start with Crackerdancer, in all three rides she has been ridden by Timothy Brett who has two wins and a second on her, they change bookings, Katie Walsh has elected to not ride Jessica Harrington’s The Princetonian, however will be on Biddy The Boss for Gavin Cromwell, David Dunsden stays loyal to Willie Mullins Redhotfilypeppers.

​So for me if Patrick has been given permission to stay loyal to Lady Ischia I personally think that is a tip in itself. There is no better judge of a horse around this sphere than Patrick Mullin’s, you have your Nina Carberry’s, your Katie Walsh’s etc etc, but not everyone has the ability to switch off a horse in a bumper than Patrick, Lady Ischia could not of been more impressive when winning under rules on debut at Naas two weeks ago when beating Best of Dubai by twelve lengths. Gordon Elliot’s horse that day was in receipt of 10lb and still he could not get close to the selection, this time around just conceding 4lb it should be a done deal in my opinion.

​Gordon Elliott has been racking up four timers all over Ireland recently, and he has a few good chances on today’s card, his representation here is Best of Dubai and Moonlight Escape, now the latter looks the main danger here, second to Biddy the Boss at Fairyhouse, she gave the formline a boost when winning on her next run at Galway by six lengths. She was eased by J J Codd on that occasion, however she gets the strong handling of another jockey here in Nina Carberry, but I feel she will have to step up to be the selection despite getting a 3lb pull at the weights.

​I feel that with Patrick Mullins staying loyal to Lady Ischia speaks volumes and I expect her to be hard to beat, Crackendancer will relish the conditions which saw her win twice at Limerick and over course and distance, but will have to give weight all round, Biddy The Boss and Moonlight Escape have to respected especially the latter is strong market support.

Lady Ischia : 2pt Win @ 7/4 (BOG)
