Huntingdon hosts its season finale on Monday, with a six-race card seeing them go from 14:05 to 16:55 at the Cambridgeshire track. 

There will be plenty of interesting types on show and with the going currently described as good to soft, the ground will have enough give to make it an intriguing late-Spring jumps meeting and we have you covered with our three best bets on the card. 

Huntingdon Betting Tips Monday

  • 14:05 Huntingdon - Off To A Flyer @ 6/1
  • 14:40 Huntingdon - Sunset In Paris @ 33/1
  • 16:55 Huntingdon - King Otis @ 5/1

14:05 Huntingdon - Off To A Flyer @ 6/1

The opening race on the card, run over 3m1f, looks an interesting betting heat with four of the six competitors likely to go off at similar odds.

The Bold Thady will garner a lot of attention after pulling a long way clear to win at Fontwell last time out, while Endofconversation and The Wise Traveller are also likely to be well-backed.

However, a chance should be taken on Joe Tizzard’s OFF TO A FLYER, who is of serious interest back over hurdles after a disappointing time chasing in the winter.

His last win was 13 months ago, but that came in a competitive Class 3 handicap, suggesting this Class 4 contest could be his to take should the switch back to his favoured obstacles bring about any level of improvement.

Freddie Gingell takes the ride and given he has won three of his last nine races, his partnership with Off To A Flyer could prove to be a fruitful one.

14:40 Huntingdon - Sunset In Paris @ 33/1

The sole double-digits field on the card will be seen in the second race of the day, where 12 runners are set to compete over 2m in a maiden hurdle, with SUNSET IN PARIS making each-way appeal amongst the plethora of unexposed types in the contest.

John Jenkins’ six-year-old has won three times on the all-weather since November and showed some signs of promise on his second attempt over hurdles in a course-and-distance contest last week.

Despite a shaky start, Sunset In Paris showed great speed to lead heading into the home turn. He eventually fell away and finished ninth, but there is the feeling that if he can settle better early on, he could go better this time around.

The booking of Brendan Powell could also help bring further improvement, making the son of Camelot an interesting each-way contender in an open race.

16:55 Huntingdon - King Otis @ 5/1

Huntingdon’s last race of the season will see seven horses compete in a Class 5 2m Handicap Hurdle, with Gary and Josh Moore potentially providing the Cambridgeshire track’s final winner of the campaign.

Gary Moore has an 18 per-cent strike-rate at this course over the past five years and KING OTIS could provide him and his son with another winner.

The son of Ocavango made a successful reappearance by landing a two-miler at Fakenham earlier in the month, despite being out of the weights that day, and a 1lb rise may not be enough to stop him making it two wins in a row.

7lb claimer Ciaran O’Shea was in the saddle at Fakenham, where first-time cheekpieces seemed to bring marked improvement, and with the same jockey and headgear retained, the eight-year-old could be set for further success.
