Enda McElhinney's tips for Tuesday include selections from Huntingdon, Brighton and Leicester.
There are five meetings across Britain and Ireland on Tuesday with a mix of action to cater for all tastes.
Flat racing on the turf at Leicester gets things up and running and they are joined by Brighton as well as National Hunt cards from Punchestown and Huntingdon. The evening fare is on the Tapeta track at Southwell.
We’ve got a trio of fancies including one for Jamie Snowden on the first day of the new season at Huntingdon.
Regarde (Huntingdon 16:20) @ 11/10
Prometeo (Brighton 16:05) @ 8/11
Hoof It Hoof It (Leicester 15:22) @ 6/1
Bowe’s chasing debutant one to note
Now a six-year-old, Regarde debuted in a bumper at Wexford in March 2021 but would go on to win a point-to-point a year later for trainer Colin Bowe at Monksgrange.
After moving to Jamie Snowden, he perhaps didn’t achieve as much as might have been hoped in four runs over hurdles last season but it would always have been more likely he would make his mark in this sphere.
Gavin Sheehan’s partner is back for a new campaign now and, in truth, this Novices’ Handicap Chase doesn’t boast a great deal of depth on paper so he’s taken to make a winning start his career over the larger obstacles.
Prometeo to make Brighton breakthrough
While Huntingdon start out on a new journey, the season at Brighton will soon draw to a close.
The Postponed colt ran a good third at Kempton over this trip on the Polytrack in late August on his debut – a race from the second won next time and the winner shaped well off a mark of 86 at Epsom subsequently.
Prometo meanwhile stepped up in trip to 1m1f at Yarmouth and came from the rear to lead inside the final furlong under Callan, only to get collared in the dying embers by David Menuisier’s Ashariba as they settled for second spot.
That experience should stand him in good stead for this trip to the seaside and he looks capable of opening his account at the third attempt.
More to come from Hoof It
The Prince Of Lir filly travelled on the heels of the leaders in that race, took up the running from halfway and had the race in safe keeping inside the final furlong as she coasted home for a smooth win.
She is in a stronger race now but had dropped a long way in the ratings prior to that win and she should still be capable of winning races from this revised position – especially when allowing for the degree of comfort in which she won last time out.
