The horse racing NAP of the Day with SportsLens tipsters on Wednesday, 7 September, is Tedham in the staying handicap chase at Uttoxeter (3:15). Our experts’ next best bet, meanwhile, is German raider Novemba in the 7f Group 3 Sceptre Fillies’ Stakes on the opening day of Doncaster’s St Leger Festival (3:35).
Both of our tipsters’ horse racing selections have eye-catching pieces of form to their names. Read on as our experts make the case for both runners in their respective jumps and Flat contests:
- 3:15 Uttoxeter – TEDHAM (NAP) @ 7/4 with 888Sport
- 3:35 Doncaster – NOVEMBA (NB EW) @ 11/2 with 888Sport
Why will horse racing NAP of the Day Tedham win?
Trainer Jonjo O’Neill has a superb 36 per cent strike rate with his runners at Uttoxeter races this season, so last time out course winner TEDHAM makes obvious appeal to follow-up in the 3m 2f handicap chase (3:15). This eight-year-old Shirocco gelding is unexposed over fences and now upped in trip.
If punters had backed O’Neill blind at this venue on the top betting sites since May, then it would’ve yielded £4.73 profit to a £1 level stake. After conceding 10lb to subsequent scorer Ballymilan when beaten by a neck on reappearance at Worcester, Tedham went one better here in July.
Horse racing NAP of the Day brings decent recent course win to the table
He ran out a comfortable 7 1/2 lengths winner over the now 114-rated Aviewtosea, who landed both his previous and next start. The front two pulled well clear of the remainder, so that advertises the form and this race result nicely. A 6lb rise in the weights for Tedham to a mark of 115 looks more than fair on that basis.
Jonjo O’Neill Junior now takes the ride for the first time. He’s also in profit on a 29 per cent win ratio at Uttoxeter this season. As Tedham always shaped like he’d get even further than 3m as a hurdler, he thus rates our horse racing NAP of the Day for 7 September.
Novemba NB & solid each way bet in Sceptre Stakes
Last year’s German 1000 Guineas heroine NOVEMBA has been highly tried since, but drops back in distance for the feature at Doncaster races today, the 7f Group 3 Sceptre Fillies’ Stakes (3:35). Her owner-breeders Gestut Brummerhof and trainer Peter Schiergen seem determined to get a British Pattern race out of her.
Novemba, a daughter of Gleneagles, is out of a mare that connections won a Listed race with over this trip. She tops ratings off 110 in this line-up and only concedes 4lb weight for age to younger fillies. Race terms thus favour Novemba, yet she remains overpriced on horse racing betting sites for this. Any rain that hits Town Moor may help her cause.
The pick of Novemba’s form, which includes a fine fourth behind proven Group 1 performers in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot last year and when filling the same spot in the Duke Of Cambridge this season, commands respect. Even her third when dropped in grade to this level last time out reads well.
Strong placed form at a higher level makes German filly pick of the bunch
That’s because the runner-up, Oscula, has since come out and won two Group 3s, including one at Glorious Goodwood races, this summer. The front two from Novemba’s previous effort have also landed subsequent black type events, so she’s got rock solid form to her name.
With no proven Pattern filly or mare contesting this, Novemba is NB to our horse racing NAP of the Day this Wednesday. New customers who stake £10 on her at 888Sport can even back her each way and make a profit if she hits the frame. They also qualify for £40 in bonuses with more details below…
