Tuesday Racing Tips: Queen to be crowned at Lingfield

 | November 21 | 

3 mins read

No fewer than six meetings take place across Britain and Ireland on Tuesday, with four afternoon jumps cards flowing into all-weather action in the evening.

First off is Lingfield, before they go at Fakenham, Hereford, Limerick, Chelmsford and Wolverhampton.

Amongst our Tuesday fancies is one for trainer Warren Greatrex who is rated almost a stone superior to his rivals in a warm-looking novices' handicap chase.

Tuesday Racing Tips

  • 12:35 Lingfield - Presenting A Queen @ 7/2
  • 12:45 Fakenham - Guguss Collonges @ 10/11
  • 13:30 Hereford - Abuffalosoldier @ 9/4

12:35 Lingfield - Presenting A Queen @ 7/2

This is a lesser race than the one Presenting A Queen ran in last time. With fitness and a bit of chasing experience now on her side, she can step forward to get off the mark over fences.

Last season Presenting A Queen won on her reappearance and improved subsequently, often in races that would be plenty warm enough for a mare rated in the 110s on the BHA jumps scale. She signed off with a run at Cheltenham's April meeting.

The aforementioned chasing debut was at Wincanton, in a race which contained a few others with potential. Presenting A Queen looked the biggest threat to winner Plenty Of Time turning in, but she got tired as though the run will bring her on.

By top-class jumps sire Presenting and out of a mare who is half-sister to two Grade 2 chase winners, Presenting A Queen is bred for this new discipline. Dropped in class and now race-fit, she can prove it.

12:45 Fakenham - Guguss Collonges @ 10/11

Small-field chases at Fakenham are often won by the horse who can travel best up with the pace. In those terms, Guguss Collonges looks as well practised as any of his rivals and he looks a bit of a standout in this low-grade handicap.

From the well-known Collonges family, this horse is hardly the golden boy, but trainer Roger Teal looks to have found the key to him having struggled in his first season after taking over the training of this gelding from Gary Moore.

A second at Stratford and third at Plumpton was followed last time by an all-the-way win at Stratford 19 days ago. All three of those runs have come under Lily Pinchin, a leading conditional rider these days who is particularly adept off the front.

Few tracks can adequately prepare you for Fakenham's almost constant turns, but Stratford comes closer than most and therefore Pinchin and Guguss Collonges have an immediate advantage in this race.

13:30 Hereford - Abuffalosoldier @ 9/4

This race is a 0-120 and with the exception of top-weight Abuffalosoldier it would comfortably fit into the 0-110 bracket.

That puts the achievements of Jigginstown King and Tedwin Hills into context. They have been showing good form in a lower grade.

Similarly, Pedley Wood is bred to make a chaser, but ought to have been a better hurdler than a BHA rating of 94, so he has something to prove in his new role.

Meanwhile, Abuffalosoldier spent most of last season competing in Class 2 handicaps. He earned his place in those races by winning at Newbury's big November meeting off a hurdles mark of 121. Now he is tasked with winning this race off the same rating.

Abuffalosoldier made his chasing debut recently at Plumpton. The bare result was not that promising, he was beaten over 30 lengths, but he really did not look to be fit for that race and, once he started to lose touch, James Bowen was easy on him.

He seemed to take to chasing pretty well and, with fitness and experience on his side, he can make the step up against inferior rivals.
