On Bonfire Night on Saturday, 5 November, the horse racing NAP of the Day, according to SportsLens experts, is Fighter Allen. He runs in the race registered as the Skymas Chase at Down Royal in Northern Ireland. Next best, meanwhile, is Wynn House in the Richard Barber Memorial Mares’ Handicap Hurdle at Wincanton.
Our tipsters’ three horse racing selections run in the UK and Ireland action on a big international day for the sport. See the full case for all these runners below:
- 12:40 Wincanton – WYNN HOUSE (NB) @ 4/1 with 888Sport
- 1:50 Wincanton – LORD ACCORD (EW) @ 5/1 with 888Sport
- 3:07 Down Royal – FIGHTER ALLEN (NAP) @ 11/4 with 888Sport
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Fighter Allen win?
Willie Mullins has won the extended 2m 3f Skymas Chase at Down Royal before and there’s more to come from FIGHTER ALLEN over fences. He tackles this Grade 2 intermediate contest for second season chasers in receipt of a whole stone from main market rival Fury Road.
This seven-year-old Vision D’Etat gelding finished in front of that one in a Dublin Racing Festival novice chase last winter. An easy winner on his next start at Tramore, it would be no surprise if Fighter Allen improved this term. It’s certainly something the top betting sites fear, based on ante post market support.
Out of the same dam as last year’s race winner Envoi Allen, Fighter Allen thus rates our horse racing NAP of the Day on Bonfire Night. A £10 punt on him with 888Sport returns £37.50 if he makes a winning reappearance with the race terms and weights in his favour. New customers who sign up and place such a wager qualify for £40 in bonuses.
Wynn House off same mark for defence of Wincanton crown
Alan King is invariably a trainer to follow in the autumn and he saddles last year’s winner of the extended 2m 5f Richard Barber Memorial Mares’ Handicap Hurdle at Wincanton in WYNN HOUSE. She’s back down to her successful mark from 12 months ago in a weaker renewal of the race, according to the handicapper.
Wynn House, a seven-year-old daughter of Presenting, thus looks a bit of value to retain her crown. Her record first time out is good and she likes the forecast good ground. The re-opposing third, Rose Of Arcadia, who Wynn House meets off 1lb better terms, has won three times since, so that gives last year’s race result and the form a solid look.
King will be targeting at least a double on this card with Elite Hurdle standing dish Sceau Royal another old favourite running. Of his two big chances, Wynn House looks the better value and is NB to our horse racing NAP of the Day for 5 November, Fighter Allen. At 4/1, a £10 win bet on her with 888Sport returns £50 to punters.
Lord Accord also appeals at Wincanton in Badger Beers
One of the big betting races of the day in the UK is the 3m1f Badger Beers Handicap Chase. This Premier Handicap sees Frodon form the weights, which makes the improving LORD ACCORD a solid each way bet to follow-up on a recent win. Neil Mulholland’s charge has also scored off his current mark of 136 before.
It gives the seven-year-old son of Yeats a nice racing weight of just 10st 6lb here. Up 5lb for a cosy victory at Cheltenham’s Showcase Meeting last month, Lord Accord looks fairly treated and horse racing betting sites clearly agree. With plenty of rivals running from out of the handicap, and Richie McLernon again aboard, he could well go in again here.
Frodon isn’t opposed lightly first time out on good ground but, aged 10 rising 11, he’s vulnerable to younger legs giving lumps of weight away all-round. Lord Accord is instead the one to be on with the bookies paying extra places on the Badger Beers. While he’s 5/1 with 888Sport, punters can get their money back with each way bets if he hits the frame. Now, let’s look at more info on the welcome bonus…
