Punters have an even mix of Jump and Flat racing to look forward to in Britain on Monday with four meetings taking place across the afternoon and into the evening.

First off is Kempton, before they go at to post Warwick, Plumpton and Newcastle.

Amongst our Monday fancies is one for trainer Fergal O'Brien who was a decent yardstick on the Flat and can move on to do well over hurdles.

Monday Racing Tips

  • 13:05 Warwick - Orchestra @ 7/4
  • 16:15 Warwick - Myth Buster e/w @ 10/1
  • 19:00 Newcastle - Irish Flame @ 14/1

13:05 Warwick - Orchestra @ 7/4

The opening 2m juvenile hurdle is well represented and could turn out to be a hot enough contest, with Fergal O'Brien's Orchestra ticking a lot of boxes on his second start over hurdles.

A son of Golden Horn, the gelding won a pair of handicaps on the Flat when trained by Ed Dunlop, achieving a highest rating of 80 at his best.

Heavily backed for his hurdling bow on his first start for O'Brien at Taunton last month, he bumped into a decent Paul Nicholls-trained horse in Swift Hawk on the day, but still finished 10 lengths clear of the third.

Orchestra certainly needs to brush up on his jumping, but with that run under his belt he should be able to improve.

16:15 Warwick - Myth Buster e/w @ 10/1

Tom Lacey's Tea Clipper is the class act in this 3m Open Hunters' Chase and arrives here off the back of some big runs in quality handicap chases, but he offers no value at the prices.

In search of an each-way bet to take him on with, Sara Bradstock's Myth Buster could be the value play, a horse who once raced in the Grade 1 Flogas Chase at Leopardstown behind Faugheen when trained by Henry de Bromhead.

The 11-year-old son of Shantou won on his first start for his current yard two years ago in a hunters at Musselburgh and, although it has been a mixed bag since, if the first-time blinkers work then he has a shout in this.

19:00 Newcastle - Irish Flame @ 14/1

Seven furlongs was definitely on the sharp side when Irish Flame disappointed at this track last month, but the step back up to a mile should be in his favour for trainer Michael Dods.

His sole success came over course and distance when readily seeing off a 1/4 hotpot in a novice race in December 2022, but he has run well in defeat over track and trip in recent months.

Irish Flame has a tendency to run quite keenly through his races, which is why he has often traded very short in running, but he is now down to a career-low mark of 70 and will be receiving weight from the majority of his rivals.

If Jason Hart can hold on to him as long as possible and gets him to settle a bit better through his race, he has an outstanding chance to find the winner's enclosure once again.
