The horse racing NAP of the Day for Tuesday, 13 September with SportsLens tipsters is Throne Hall. He runs in the extended 1m 7f novices’ hurdle at Uttoxeter today (2:25). Next Best, meanwhile, is Belle Na Bann in the novices’ handicap hurdle over that trip later on the same card (3:35).
Both of our horse racing experts’ selections this afternoon bring plenty to the table. See the case in full for both picks below:
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Throne Hall win?
Classy Flat performer THRONE HALL is a fascinating recruit to the National Hunt code and makes his hurdles bow at Uttoxeter races today (2:25). Trained by Archie Watson, this five-year-old Kingman gelding had an official rating of 102 on the level this time last year. That is a very high calibre convert to jumps indeed.
After being sold in March, Throne Hall moved from Kevin Ryan’s stable to the Watson yard. He has since finished second on three of his last five starts in middle-distance or staying handicaps. Those include the Queen Mothers’ Cup for female amateur riders at York, a 1m 5f event at Ayr races and around Salisbury over 1m 6f on his penultimate outing.
Solid Flat handicap form makes horse racing NAP of the Day quite interesting
Plenty of Throne Hall’s back form from last season also reads well. Among notable race results from 2021 include when runner-up to subsequent Listed scorer and Group 2 placed filly Golden Pass at Thirsk. Throne Hall also ran a fine third in the Jorvik Handicap at the York Dante Festival. He was only beaten three lengths by dual Newbury Group 3 winner Ilaraab.
Even Throne Hall’s second at the Ebor Festival York races last year to Sam Cooke in a 1m 4f handicap looks good. The winner advertised that form by scoring at Newmarket off 7lb higher at the end of August. With Watson doing well with his National Hunt horses and in-form jockey Gavin Sheehan now taking the ride, Throne Hall just had to be our horse racing NAP of the Day this Tuesday.
Belle Na Bann NB to complete her hat-trick
Neil Mulholland is a red-hot trainer, so BELLE NA BANN could well defy a penalty and land her hat-trick in the novices’ handicap hurdle (3:35). Tipped up in this column on 5 September when returned at 9/4, this six-year-old Califet mare has seen things click for her in recent weeks. Tom Scudamore has also developed a nice understanding of how to get the best out of her.
Belle Na Bann followed-up on her Fontwell success at Newton Abbot just eight days ago when easily accounting for the top weight, Galah, by seven lengths. She now turns out quickly under a penalty. While the assessor hasn’t had his say, chances are it’ll be the equivalent of the 7lb extra Belle Na Bann carries here and top betting sites know it.
Purple patches of trainer and jockey of NB bet cannot be ignored
Mulholland and Scudamore both boast higher than 40 per cent strike rates over the last 14 days. It’s clear that the trainer and jockey are enjoying a real purple patch. On that basis, horse racing betting sites could easily have Belle Na Bann shorter. She looks a bit of value to notch another success. This thriving mare may well go in again.
Taking the profitability of following connections into account, Belle Na Bann is thus NB to our horse racing NAP of the Day on 13 September. A £10 punt on her with 888Sport returns £45 if she does complete the hat-trick. New customers who join and put a wager on Belle Na Bann or Throne Hall qualify for £40 in bonuses and we’ve more info below…
