Top tipster Andrew Mount has three selections from three different meetings on Friday
Betting on Jumpers’ Bumpers should come with a government health warning, as they can throw up some odd results. Since these races were introduced we could have bet every runner at Betfair SP and made a profit of £555.37 to a £1 level stake (or 58.7% on turnover after commission). At SP the figure is -£236.87. However, I am going to have a small interest in the Max Recycle “Jumpers’ Bumper” National Hunt Flat race (All-Weather) at Newcastle today (2.07) as the 11-8 favourite Lucky Lover Boy could prove vulnerable. I thought he was flattered when scoring in a two-mile handicap here last time because he came from well off the pace when the headwind made life virtually impossible for front-runners. 15-8 second favourite Siannes Star has been off since May and has no great record when fresh, so the vote goes to James Moffatt’s GOLDEN TOWN. The nine-year-old has been off for 205 days but returned from a similar break to score at Sedgefield last spring and was a close-up third at 16-1 on his first run back in 2018.
THE BAY BIRCH hasn’t got the ideal running style for Warwick but there’s plenty of pace in the 2m4f Feldon Dunsmore Budbrooke Handicap Chase (4.40) and she’s worth chancing at a big price. She tends to come good at this time of year, recording form figures February to May of 1211211711 (7-10) for a profit of £29.77 to a £1 level stake at SP. She was never asked for her effort until the race was all but over at Huntingdon last time and she drops in class here.
Nigel Tinkler has his string in good for and ALLUX BOY looks interesting in the Bombardier British Hopped Amber Beer Handicap at Wolverhampton (7.45). The six-year-old has from figures of 161210 (3-6) at this venue, improving to 1121 (3-4) when returned to the track within four weeks of his previous outing. He hinted at a return to form when a 33-1 fifth at Southwell late last month and has been dropped 4lb since.
