Top tipster Andrew Mount starts this week with three value selections at Newton Abbot, Hamilton and Newcastle. Check out his thoughts below, with selections backable via Betway, and their exclusive £10 matched deposit.
LISRONAGH STONE – (3.10 Newton Abbot, 1pt win, 9/1)
LISRONAGH STONE was a big eyecatcher in a novice hurdle at Stratford on his penultimate start where he kept on from the rear to finish a 150-1 third. Stratford rarely helps such patient tactics and the winner (made all) and runner-up (chased leaders) were up there from the outset.
He returned to Stratford next time for a maiden hurdle and was never in contention, though was 80-1 and ran better than his finishing position suggested in a 26-length seventh of 11. He did second-best of the hold-up horses that day, finishing just behind Alan King’s 13-2 shot Catbird Seat. He returns to handicap company off a lowly mark and looks worth a small interest back up in trip.
CARD HIGH – (4.20 Hamilton, 1pt win, 16/1)
CARD HIGH has a solid record at this time of year, winning six of his 18 starts in September/October for a profit of £67.50 to a £1 level stake at SP.
The veteran disappointed here eight days ago but, with hindsight, probably needed that after a break since May. Today’s slightly quicker ground will also help and he won this race by three lengths last year when Kevin Stott was last on board.
SOMEWHERE SECRET – (7.00 Newcastle, 1pt win, 16/1)
Owners Mia Racing switched 11-year-old Secretinthepark from Michael Mullineaux to Rebecca Menzies with instant results – he won easily at Thirsk under P J McDonald on his stable debut before following up against the pace at Newmarket. They attempt the same trick today with SOMEWHERE SECRET, who is 8lb below his highest winning mark and only 3lb higher than when scoring at Carlisle in the spring.
The 6f trip was too far for him at Haydock last time and though 0-7 on the all-weather, he has shown form here previously, doing best of those drawn low when a 25-1 fifth over course and distance off this exact same mark last summer (first five drawn 11, 9, 12, 8 and 1). Secretinthepark won in a first-time visor on his stable debut and the visor is used in replace of blinkers on Somewhere Secret today.
