Fakenham Tips: Guguss Collonges to double his tally on Tuesday

 | November 20 |

There is lots of racing action to get stuck into on Tuesday with six meetings scheduled to take place across Britain and Ireland.

Fakenham hosts a National Hunt meeting, with action from 12.10-15.35 and we've picked out a trio to follow on their seven-race card. They include recent Stratford scorer Guguss Collonges for the Roger Teal yard.

Fakenham Tips

  • 12:45 - Guguss Collonges @ 5/6
  • 13:20 - For Gina @ 3/1
  • 15:05 - Up For Appeal @ 7/2

12:45 - Guguss Collonges @ 5/6

Lily Pinchin was on board at Stratford (2m6½f, soft) earlier this month when Gugus Collonges scored his first win since joining the Roger Teal yard, and they are fancied to build on that now.

The step up in trip allied to positive tactics appeared to help, with the seven-year-old ridden forward in that contest and allowed to dictate matters before he eventually pulled clear to win by more than five lengths.

A 5lb rise looks fair and this track should play to his strengths if he is once more deployed to make the running. The fourth from that Stratford contest has come out and won since, so the form looks solid in the context of this race.

13:20 - For Gina @ 3/1

Bryony Frost will be doing the steering on the Lucy Wadham-trained For Gina in the Greene King Level Head Novices' Handicap Hurdle over just shy of three miles, and they can go a place better than this month's second at Huntingdon.

The mare was making her first start since June in that race, having scored at Uttoxeter on good ground over a similar trip to this in that final start before a summer break.

Up 4lb on her return, she ran well at Huntingdon (3m1f, good) and looked likely to win only for the game Chris Cool to take her measure in the final 100 yards.

That still amounted to a personal best on just her fourth start in a handicap and this improving five-year-old may have more to give with Frost back in the saddle now. They may be too strong for recent Huntingdon winner Boleyn Boy.

15:05 - Up For Appeal @ 7/2

Trainer Christian Williams has saddled more winners at Fakenham (19) than anywhere else since taking out his license and he boasts a healthy strike-rate of 27 per-cent at the Norfolk venue.

He is fancied to add to his tally with Up For Appeal in the Weatherbys nhstallions.co.uk Handicap Chase.

The lightly-raced five-year-old jumped well on his recent chasing bow when finishing third at Hereford (2m5f, good) and having won over this sort of trip as a hurdler, dropping in distance should not faze him today.

Ellis Collier knows him well and is back on board for this assignment, claiming a handy 7lb in the plate.

Up For Appeal is dropping in grade and, if he builds on that promise of that initial showing over fences 15 days ago, may prove the one to beat ahead of Extraordinary Man, who won on the same card at Hereford that day but has a patchy profile and might not back that effort up.
