Market Rasen plays host to the highlight of Summer National Hunt Racing on Saturday, where the ITV cameras will be showing the Listed Summer Handicap Hurdle, and the Listed Summer Plate Handicap Chase. Last year the Hurdle was won by John Constable (150), whilst the Plate went to Paul Nicholls’ beautiful grey Alcala (147). I actually tipped up both of these winners 12 months ago, so the pressure is on to repeat the feat this time around!
We’re back at Exeter Racecourse this weekend for one of the best meetings in the South West – Super Sunday! Over £115,000 worth of prize money is on offer, and we are treated to a Class 1 Listed Novice Hurdle. In previous years the likes of Finian’s Oscar and Unowhatimeanharry have won at this meeting, so there is likely to be a future star in here somewhere. I’ll be attending once again this year, so be sure to follow me on twitter @JakePriceTips for live updates throughout the day, as well as my tips from Punchestown and Ayr.
The inaugural Dublin Racing Festival takes place at Leopardstown this weekend with 7 Grade 1s in total, and here is my preview for the main races on Day 1 at Leopardstown! Be sure to follow me on twitter @JakePriceTips for tips from Musselburgh, Sandown and Wetherby alongside updates throughout the day.
As another fantastic season of summer National Hunt racing in Devon comes to an end, we are treated to a mouth-watering card full of seasonal reappearances in what promises to be a stylish Newton Abbot finale. Over £90,000 prize money is on offer which has attracted two Grade 1 winning horses to make the journey down to the South West in the form of Ballyoptic and Flying Angel. This is the perfect way to end the Newton Abbot season, and transition into the National Hunt season proper. Here I will be going through each race, picking out the ones to watch, and ultimately who is going to win (hopefully!). Be sure to follow me on twitter @JakePriceTips for live updates from the track and any tips from the Irish meeting at Downpatrick.
