12.05 – Fitzdares Club Re-Opens In January Novices’ Hurdle – 2m3f
An interesting Novices’ Hurdle and PADDYS MOTORBIKE probably sets the standard. He was a smart sort on the flat and benefited from a positive ride to win by 12-lengths when last seen. Undoubtedly, he’s up against some unexposed rivals, but looks good material to reach the frame.
BALLYMILLSY was out of his depth when down the field in a Grade Two at Cheltenham, but this is easier and he’s best judged on his two promising efforts beforehand. He looks a big player with the scope to do better.
Of the newcomers, GET PREPARED is bred to be useful and with David Bass and Ben Pauling teaming up for shrewd owners who only purchase good recruits, he’s hard to discount.
Selections: PADDYS MOTORBIKE, BALLYMILLSY, GET PREPARED
12.35 – Fitzdares Supports East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle – 3m1f
The consistent mare, DING DING, has an each-way squeak based on her respectable efforts in defeat already this campaign. Admittedly, she was no match for an impressive winner in a class-3 when last seen, but this is easier and she ought to be on the premises at the business end.
MARCH IS ON is 3Ib lower than when last successful and looked back to form when second at Wetherby last time. He’s more adaptable on softer ground but has to be considered in this tricky race.
Selections: DING DING, MARCH IS ON
13.05 – Fitzdares Fancies Goose Over Turkey Handicap Chase – 2m7f
STRONG RESEMBLANCE has a tendency to make mistakes and returns from an absence but has gone well fresh in the past and has won four of his last eight starts, including over course-and-distance. He’ll handle conditions better than most and looks poised to run well.
James Bowen takes the ride on THOMAS SHELBY, who was a shade underwhelming when pulled up at Warwick having been well-supported beforehand. However, if he can get back on track to the form he showed prior to that assignment, he’d have a decent chance.
Selections: STRONG RESEMBLANCE, THOMAS SHELBY
13.35 – Fitzdares Thanks Lily O’Shea This Christmas Handicap Hurdle – 2m4
This looks really competitive but it’s interesting to see connections revert DRAGONFRUIT back to hurdling following a decent success over fences last time out. It’s possible that they see this race as a winnable opportunity whilst his mark remains attractive, so he’s handed the vote.
The ten-year-old GREAT HALL has often competed in better races than this and has plenty of course form. His form figures over course-and-distance here read 2, 2, 5, 5, 2, 4 and 4. His current mark of 103 makes him extremely well-handicapped and with conditions to suit, he looks a solid option.
Selections: DRAGONFRUIT, GREAT HALL
14.05 – Google The Fitzdares Club Right Now Novices’ Handicap Chase – 2m3f
Kim Bailey’s PRINCE LIYWELYN should take all of the beating in this Handicap Chase. He looked in need of his seasonal debut when fourth at the first time of asking over fences at Stratford. The six-year-old was useful in bumper/hurdle races and looks to have been found a good opportunity to win over the bigger obstacles from a mark of 109 that looks within his capabilities under David Bass.
Selections: PRINCE LlYWELYN
14.35 – Fitzdares Club Adores Henrietta Knight Mares’ Standard Open NH Race – 1m7f
Oliver Sherwood’s JERSEY LADY got off the mark convincingly at the first time of asking at Ludlow and backed up that bright start to her career when third in a bumper race at Cheltenham next time out. She looks a very promising filly for connections and looks sure to put up a bold display.
MISS AUSTEN was impressive when winning at Ludlow after a ten-month break, beating Rainyday Woman easily. If she can resume in the same sort of form, she ought to be involved and is worth a chance.
Selections: JERSEY LADY, MISS AUSTEN
