ODDSbible Racing: Daily Tips – 15th December

Another good day of action on Saturday as day two of The international meeting takes centre-stage at Cheltenham, live on ITV4.

Our man Danny Archer has analysed all the action.

1.20pm Cheltenham – Bun Doran should score again

Tom George is currently without stable jockey Adrian Heskin who broke his leg in a fall at Taunton on Thursday, but following The Worlds End impressive win at Cheltenham on Friday, Bun Doran can give him further tonic on Saturday. The seven-year-old son of Shantou dotted up over course and distance in November to score by eight lengths and despite a 10lb rise, he is going to prove tough to beat given his liking for good ground.

1.55pm Cheltenham – Baron could be King again and don’t forget about the Fox

A decent renewal of the £130,000 event and Frodon will bid to carry top-weight. A good second to Baron Alco in the BetVictor Gold Cup over course and distance in November, I think Gary Moore’s charge can certainly improve again here. He was given an easy lead that day and jumped for fun in an incident-packed race. He has been upped 6lb but that might not stop him. There are concerns about quick ground, but he seemed to cope fine with it in November. Rather Be heads the market for Britain’s champion Jump trainer Nicky Henderson and he was brought-down in the BetVictor Gold Cup. He is on an attractive mark, but at bis price, I’m keen to take him on.

Two others to note at bigger prices are Catamaran Du Seuil who fell over the Grand National fences last weekend, but has been very progressive for the Good Doctor Newland and Foxtail Hill, who hinted at a revival when third at Cheltenham last time.

2.10pm Doncaster – Irish Roe to bring emerald feel to Town Moor

A competitive £20,000 event and Irish Roe is of interest despite having to shoulder top-weight. A heavy faller at Cheltenham in the Greatwood last time out, some of her best performances have come at Doncaster, including when winning this event last term.She will enjoy ground conditions and is capable of bouncing back to form here.

3.05 Cheltenham – Silver Streak could grab gold

The feature are of the day looks very trappy and is missing some of its star quality following Laurina’s withdrawal on account of the quick conditions.

The favourite is Summerville Boy for Tom George and Noel Fehily and he finished fourth behind Samcro and Buveur D’Air in the Fighting Fifth at Newcastle on his seasonal debut. Winner of the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at The Festival in March, he could be worth taking on with Silver Streak who ran a cracker to finish second in the Greatwood at Cheltenham last time out. The booking of Barry Geraghty is interesting and he should be suited if they go a good clip in front.
