Raceline: Tip of the Day 23rd November

No excuses for a desperately disappointing performance by yesterday’s selection. Today, the focus is on a fascinating card, laced with quality, at Haydock.

With horses from the leading yards of Paul Nicholls, Nicky Henderson, Donald McCain and David Pipe represented in this novice hurdle, I am hopeful of a decent price about Tim Easterby’s improving seven-year-old. I am certain his odds won’t reflect the impressive nature of his victory at Hexham two weeks ago when he spreadeagled a fair field, despite testing conditions. Never out of the first two in six career-runs, the gelded son of Karinga Bay boasts a persuasive mix of speed and stamina, and because he is bred to develop into a staying chaser, today’s switch to the larger fixed-brush hurdles on stamina-sapping ground should not present any problems. He is owned by Grand National-winning businessman Trevor Hemmings, who likes nothing better than a victory here at his local track.

Elsewhere on the card, I strongly fancy the McCain-trained duo SUPER DUTY (1.55) and CLONDAW KAEMPFER (2.30).
