TV Tips Saturday 31st March 2018

Post racing update: none of the selections featured in the finish today leaving us £25.32 down on the year for TV Tips

Not much for us jumping fans to get our teeth into now that the shadow of the flat season looms ever larger, but Haydock provides three TV races, so let’s see if we can make a dent in the deficit of £20.32.

Orbasa’s a frustrating horse who’s hard to win with. The fact that Nicholls is persevering with him after just 1 success in his last 19 runs ought to mean something. He’d been involved mostly in three-mile races this season before dropping back last time at Kempton to 20 furlongs. I thought he travelled that day like a horse well capable of winning the race and he looked to finish with a fair bit left in the tank; he just took too long to get going.

Haydock’s much longer straight should suit him well here and he’s a good price. He looks to race honestly enough but the blinkers suggest he has some quirks. Cobden rides for the first time and quirky horses sometimes respond to a change of jock.

A bit like Nicholls with Orbasa, Henderson seems set on getting a race out of Percy Street who’s been backed in his last two races. He was poor in both despite the money being down but must have been showing something at home to suggest he was back in the form that saw him finish sixth in the Fred Winter at last year’s festival.

They appear to be pinning their hope on first time blinkers here and I think there will be cash in the market once more for him, and that it’s worth chancing they get it right this time.

A fair mix here age-wise and I’m going with the youngest, least exposed, and hopefully improving Shanroe In Milan. He was well ridden by Brian Hughes last time, saving ground all the way and running on well at the death despite looking inexperienced in both jumping and racing.  There could be a fair bit more to come from him and trainer Longsdon has plenty faith in 5lb claimer Paul O’Brien who rides.

I’m having £1 win on each with the bookies mentioned above and £1EW treble (Hills) and advise you to do the same.

Enjoy the racing and don’t bet more than you can afford to lose with a smile.
