Horse racing tips January 30: Horses you MUST back at Leicester, Plumpton and Lingfield | Racing | Sport
The Seamus Mullins-trained six-year-old was a well-backed 5-1 shot in the Sky Sports Racing Sussex National over the extended three-and-a-half mile trip earlier this month and was still travelling strongly when exiting at the 16th of the 20 fences.
He gets a confidence-booster over hurdles in the conditional jockeys’ handicap, run over a shorter trip than last time (3m1f), and should go well for Daniel Sansom, who has a decent record over hurdles.
Also in the selection’s favour is that he has twice won over today’s idiosyncratic course over the smaller obstacles.
CLOTH CAP (nb, 1.40) couldn’t be in better form and can complete the hat-trick for trainer Jonjo O’Neill.
His winning sequence began at Stratford in November, where he scored comfortably under Richie McLernon and the pair followed up at Catterick, where he was a well-supported favourite and only needed to be pushed out by McLernon to beat Red Giant.
McLernon is again in the saddle and can make it three on the spin with Luckofthedraw and Turtle Wars the main dangers.
STORM TROOPER (treble, 4.20) can land Lingfield’s finale, the Betway Handicap over the five-furlong trip.
The eight-year-old, trained by Charlie Wallis, hasn’t been far away on his last five runs which have yielded a 3-2-6-2-2 sequence. He deserves to get off the mark for the first time since September 2016.
