This Friday, 26 November, marks the starts of the Newbury Winter Carnival and ITV Racing tips for the five races on terrestrial TV are available. See which horses betting experts and pundits fancy for these events.
On this day, the feature race is the 3m Grade 2 Long Distance Hurdle (3:00), so ITV Racing tipsters give their picks for that. The supporting card at Newbury also has three handicaps, two over fences and the other the smaller obstacles. Kicking ITV Racing coverage of the Winter Carnival off is an intriguing 2m maiden hurdle (1:15).
Back by popular demand are Tony Calvin tips with the Betfair blogger always looking for the each way angle. Want to see his fancies before taking a punt on horse racing betting sites? SportsLens has them alongside regular pundits such as betting ring supremo Matt Chapman and former jumps jockey Mick Fitzgerald.
ITV Racing Tipsters & Experts Don’t Agree on Broadcast Races
With such strong characters giving ITV Racing tips for this meeting, there isn’t much consensus. In fact, in none of the five races do all three pundits and experts unanimously agree on the one to be on. That is one of the beautiful things about racing, though.
As Winter Carnival sponsors Ladbrokes once said in an advertising campaign, “everyone’s got an opinion – what’s yours worth?” ITV Racing tipsters don’t go in for slogans and gimmicks but just finding winners for punters. Mick Fitzgerald tips don’t always agree with fellow pundit Chapman, so come to expect that. The motor mouth has some strong views on the sport after all, so follow your favourite.
Whether Calvin’s counsel appeals or Matt Chapman tips makes most sense, between them punters should get a winner or two. Read all about who they and Fitzgerald fancy for Newbury races on 26 November in the table below.

Paisley Park perhaps the Newbury NAP
While Calvin isn’t in the Paisley Park camp for the feature Long Distance Hurdle, both Chapman and Fitzy say it could be worth giving Emma Lavelle’s stable star one more chance here. A winner of this 3m contest two years ago, only Thyme Hill proved too good for him here last season.
Punters will have probably realised by now that Paisley Park hits a flat spot in his races before rallying late on. That second wind has often come after the bird has flown, but Lavelle uses first-time cheekpieces on him here. The hope is that they sharpen Paisley Park up and eke out some improvement.
He meets Wetherby West Yorkshire Hurdle winner Indefatigable off better terms here at Newbury too. That could be a big factor in who comes out on top in their rematch. Paisley Park is the recommended punt for Chappers and Fitzgerald here, while Calvin chances are unreliable Lisnagar Oscar each way.
