There is a busy schedule of racing to come on Tuesday, with no fewer than seven meetings planned across the UK and Ireland.
Hexham’s seven-race card is due to take place on good ground and we have picked out three tips for Tuesday’s evening meeting.
While we have not picked a runner in the opening contest at 17:50, readers can take advantage of Betfred’s ‘Free Bet if 2nd’ promotion in the opener.
Hexham Betting Tips:
18:20 – Harper Valley @ 7/4
Rebecca Menzies and her team will head to Hexham with a point to prove, with Harper Valley set to compete in the Hexham Racecourse Supporting Northumberland County Show Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle.
The six-year-old was last in action less than two weeks ago, finishing second at Kelso to Ballyporeen at odds of 11/4.
Menzies’s runner made his debut for the yard at Wetherby in April, and he has continued to improve during his first three outings. After that display in Yorkshire, he finished third at Hexham before his runner-up effort at Kelso.
The signs suggest he is improving and, having already run at Hexham, he can shed the maiden tag and win at the fourth time of asking.
18:50 – Doyens De Ante @ 13/8
Trainer Max Young has enjoyed a fine few weeks with Doyens De Ante, and he and connections will look to celebrate a third-straight win this week.
The seven-year-old ended April with a win at Chepstow at 6/1 before winning again at Huntingdon at the start of this month.
Jockey Charlie Hammond has ridden him on the last four occasions, but it is the addition of cheekpieces that has made the difference during his previous two runs.
He has now been handed a 7lb hike in the ratings, but considering the form he has shown, he might be capable of even better and it certainly feels safer siding with him.
20:50 – Chemical Warfare @ 2/1
Tjade Collier’s Chemical Warfare shredded the maiden tag last time out and it is hard to oppose the six-year-old with any confidence.
He was an impressive winner at Newcastle in May, winning at 3/1 under jockey Thomas Dowson. Collier’s stable is in good form and he has decided to switch Chemical Warfare from fences to hurdles.
He should have no issues adapting to the change in obstacles, and he should have too much experience for the rest of the field.
His win last time out ended a run of 13 races without success, and he should be able to repeat his performance from last week at Newcastle.
