2019 Christmas Horse Racing Weekend Tips [Day Two]

The Grade 1 Marsh Hurdle is the highlight on the second day of the Christmas Weekend Meeting at Ascot (Saturday 21 December). But as Paisley Park is long odds-on to enhance his reputation as the best staying-hurdler around, our free tips for Ascot come in the Plymouth Gin Handicap Chase and the Dave Dawes Silver Cup Handicap Chase

Check out our trends, analysis, and tips for Christmas Horse Racing Weekend at Ascot.

Plymouth Gin Handicap Chase 2019 Analysis

13:50 at Ascot on 21st December

This handicap chase is run over 2 miles 2 furlongs and 175 yards and a competitive looking field of 13 runners are set to go to post. Cap Du Nord, My Way, and On The Slopes look up against it having been beaten off similar marks in lower-grade handicaps. Meanwhile, Golden Whiskey and Espoir Dy Guye have been raised in the handicap and in class after winning last time.

War Sound is normally at his best on better ground, whilst Got Away and Militarian have shown their best form over longer trips. Kobrouk could go well stepping up in trip on his second run back after wind surgery for Nicky Henderson but he had winning form over even further in France. Mr Medic likes Ascot, but he would prefer better ground and is 11lb higher than winning the 2017 edition of this race.

Garde La Victoire is weighted to win on his best form, but the 10-year-old does have something to prove after 433 days off the track. Delire D’Estruval is only up 4lb for winning last time but the way he stayed don over 2½ miles that day didn’t suggest he wanted to step back in trip, though his trainer had a winner at Ascot yesterday.

It’s First Flow that gets the vote. Kim Bailey’s 7-year-old relished heavy ground over hurdles, and he gets into his first handicap chase off a 4lb lower mark than he was rated over hurdles. That could prove very lenient, as he chased home the useful Sommerville Boy and Angel’s Breath in his first two chases before a confidence boosting win last time. Kim Bailey also sent another stable star Vinndication to Ascot to win his first handicap.

Dave Dawes Silver Cup Handicap Chase 2019 Analysis

15:00 at Ascot on 21st December

This handicap chase over nearly three miles is worth over £56,000 to the winner, so it will have been a major target for most of the entries. Black Corton is a grade one winning chaser and the handicapper has dropped him 2lb since he was third here earlier in the season. But he was beaten over 30 lengths by Native River last time and is rated 9lb higher than any of the previous nine winners of this race.

The handicapper also hit Crievehill with a 10lb rise for winning last time and could struggle off his new mark at a course he’s underperformed at before. Paul Nicholls has high hopes for Give Me A Copper this season, but heavy ground is an unknown factor for him. The ground is also a worry for Mister Malarkey whose three wins last season came on much better ground. Azzerti may find this class too hot to handle.

Acting Lass handles plenty of cut in the ground but, after winning at Chepstow last time, he’s now 4lb higher than well beaten behind two of his rivals at Ascot earlier in the season. Course winner Kidisart is interesting stepped back up in trip on soft ground but a rating of 155 is higher than any other winner of this race has overcome.

Yalltari is one of the few runners to have won on heavy ground and he ran well on much quicker ground in a Grade 2 here last season. He’s not raced since, but shrewd trainer Venetia Williams could have preserved his handicap mark for this race, which she won in 2013 with Houblon Des Obeaux.

Jerrysback is interesting on his close second to Vinndication at Ascot last season, when he had two useful sorts behind. He’s also done most of his winning on soft ground. But he ran appallingly on his seasonal debut and, though Barry Geraghty rides, he has something to prove.

I’m hoping Regal Encore can roll back the years at the age of 11 over what is his favourite course and distance. He’s won at Ascot of a mark of 150 and won the 2016 edition of this race off 144. He runs off 142 today, which was the same mark as when second here earlier in the season. His trainer Antony Honeyball has also been on fire in December and he has great each-way prospects at a big price on ground that should bring his stamina into play.
