Today’s Extra Place Tips
Struggling to find a runner to back? Check out a pair of selections from across the day’s Extra Place races.
1:15pm Newbury (5 Places) ALMAZHAR GARDE - 12/1
Winner at Ludlow (2m 4f, soft) back in February in a Class 3 handicap chase and showed further progression on latest run at Kelso (2m 5f, good to soft) when winning by 1.25 lengths in a similar contest three weeks ago. Step in level here, will be a significant test, but should have more to come and could very well go close. Gavin Sheehan resumes riding duties today.
2:46pm Fairyhouse (5 Places) AT THE ACORN - 7/1
Won a novice chase at this venue, back in January (2m 5f, soft), finishing 2.5 lengths clear. Has not been able to repeat the feat in three runs since, placing 6-59, with a very disappointing run over hurdles at Galway (2m, soft) last month, although the short trip, didn’t help at all. Extended 2m 3f looks more suitable, but needs a good performance this afternoon and is capable of more.
3:00pm Newbury (6 Places) La Bague Au Roi - 16/1
9-yo mare has not won since taking a Grade 1 novice chase at Leopardstown (2m 5f, good) back in February 2019. Latest two runs showed a little promise, with a fourth at Perth (2m 7f, good) in September and returned fo a first start since wind surgery at Wetherby (3m, soft), finishing fifth of ten, although she did seem to fade somewhat on the run in. Given the benefit of the doubt here, but needs to show a little more to be in with a genuine shout of the spoils, with each-way backing, clearly suiting.
