Sunday, November 25 horse racing betting tips: Dennis' 8/1 chance can Dance to Exeter success

Brian Healy gives his race-by-race selections and best bets across Saturday's UK and Irish racecards.

The week ends as it began with a three-fixture line-up of horse racing fixtures which takes in jumps racing action from Exeter and Uttoxeter, and also Navan in Ireland where the Grade Three Monksfield Novices’ Hurdle is joined on the card by the ultra competitive Troytown Handicap Chase.

Navan (jumps) - 12.00 - 3.30pm (8 races)
Exeter (jumps) - 12.50 - 3.50pm (7 races)
Uttoxeter (jumps) - 1.10 - 3.40pm (6 races)



(12.30) WHATUCALLHER (11/2, William Hill) finished runner-up on her hurdles debut at Cork last month, but Edward Harty’s Robin Des Champs filly can go one better here.

Beaten three lengths behind Court Maid, she was possibly just given too much to do on that occasion although it was her first run in some five months. 

That form has been franked with the winner scoring again since, and sure to strip fitter for the outing she could open her account here.

Gordon Elliott can enjoy a successful Sunday at Navan.

(2.30) Cork National winner OUT SAM (8/1, Ladbrokes) has been in good heart since the turn of the year, finishing sixth in the Theystes Chase at Gowran Park behind Monbeg Notorious prior to turning in a poor performance in the Puinchestown Granad National Trial behind Folsom Blue where he was pulled up.

Given how far out he exited the race, he may well have been amiss; but he bounced back from that disappointment to post back-to-back solid third place finishes in both the Ulster National at Downpatrick, and at Fairyhouse in April.

Given a break after that outing, the Multiplex gelding produced a career-best effort to win the Cork National earlier in the month, defeating Rogue Angel by two lengths to finally land a big prize which had long been in the pipeline.

The handicapper has reacted by hitting him with an 8lbs rise in the weights, but he remains with some scope given he was rated even higher over hurdles; he looks the pick of the Elliott battalion, and a repeat of that Cork effort ought to see him firmly in the mix once more with Davy Russell in the saddle once more.

The pair have struck up a good rapport, partnering together for the Multiplex gelding’s last three starts, and it would be no surprise to see another bold effort from the nine-year old.

12.00 - Defi Bleu
12.30 - Whatucallher
1.00 - Dinons
1.30 - Warnaq
2.00 - Paloma Blue
2.30 - Out Sam
3.00 - De Name Escapes Me
3.30 - Emily Moon


(1.50) DEAUVILLE DANCER (8/1, Coral) has won from higher marks in the park and David Dennis’ charge could be worth chancing to get back on the scoresheet here.

The Tamayuz gelding won three times last season between October and December, latterly at Doncaster when beating Derintogher Yank from 130, but he has been rather in-and-out since. However, he shaped well on his return from a break at Stratford earlier in the month and can build on that effort here.

He’s been dropped 3lbs in the weights following that outing which leaves him 5lbs below his winning mark, and back up in trip for this latest outing he could do better.

(2.50) NIGHT OF SIN (7/2, William Hill) could be the one to side with having struck last time out at Taunton, and Nick Williams’ charge can follow up here.

The Sinndar gelding cut little ice on his chase debut at Hereford earlier in the month, beating only two home; but he might have needed it and he stepped up on that effort to score in a three-runner race with a wide-margin defeat of Diablerets.

That form probably doesn’t amount to much, but he remains open to improvement and he returns to handicaps from a very workable mark. He won off 128 as a hurdler, so he remains with scope to improve, and no surprise if he were to find another jolt of progress over the larger obstacles to strike again.

12.50 - Gonnabegood
1.20 - Vango De Vaige
1.50 - Deauville Dancer
2.20 - Lil Rockerfeller
2.50 - Night Of Sin
3.20 - Our Power
3.50 - Get Wishing


(1.40) INDEFATIGABLE (2/1, Ladbrokes) finished third to Champion Bumper winner Relegate on her sole start in Ireland at Punchestown back in January, and the Schiaparelli mare got off the mark on his debut for new hander Paul Webber when successful at Southwell in April.

Although she could only finish seventh on her hurdles debut at Newbury earlier in the month, she ran better than the bare result, hampered at the second last; and she can step up on that run with the experience bound to have done her good.

Likely to have more improvement to come, she can open her account here.

Uttoxeter is one of three meetings on Sunday.

(2.40) CRIXUS’S ESCAPE (11/2, Paddy Power) won both his first two start over hurdles, scoring both wins at Hexham, and Gina Bonas’ charge is given another chance to build on the promise he showed in those outings.

The Beneficial gelding only finished seventh of nine runners behind Aspen Colorado at Carlisle earlier in the month on his first start for almost seven months; but he had excuses having all but fallen early in that contest and giving up too much ground to make up.

He wasn’t given a hard time in the wake of that blunder, but the run should have sharpened him up and he could well step up for the reappearance to do better here. He’s not one to give up on just yet, and he is worth another chance.

1.10 - Jalingo
1.40 - Indefatigable
2.10 - Capard King
2.40 - Crixus’s Escape
3.10 - Global Domination
3.40 - Quri
