There are five race meetings scheduled to take place on the afternoon and evening of Friday 5th December 2014 in the UK and Ireland.
National Hunt racing takes place in Britain, with an afternoon card at Exeter and Sandown Park, while flat racing fans will have a prolonged day of entertainment, as Lingfield has a card of all weather flat racing in the afternoon, beginning at 12:30pm, followed by an early evening meeting at Wolverhampton which begins at 4pm under their floodlights. Over in Ireland, Dundalk will host a later evening of all weather flat racing, which begins at 6:15pm and finishes at 09:15pm.
At Exeter, our best selection is Deputy Dan in the 13:10 second race, as the horse has been putting in some good efforts in similar conditions which suggest this race is within his grasp. We put Wilton Milan as the next best chance of the day, in the following event, the 13:40 third race, another chase.
At Sandown, we cannot see past the Paul Nicholls trained, and highly thought of Black Thunder, in the 14:30 event, as the best chance of the card. That one will likely go off odds-on favourite, though, so for those of you who like a longer price, might be interested in Coolking in the 15:00.
At Lingfield, our selection is Salient, who is taken to follow up a recent success at this track, under similar conditions.
Company Secretary takes the nod in Wolverhampton’s evening card, in the penultimate 19:00 event. This horse has gone close on the last two starts under similar conditions, and is taken to go one better this evening in what looks an easier opportunity.
At Dundalk, we suggest Carrie Bow Cay as the best chance of the evening, in the 20:45 sixth race. This horse has been knocking on the door of late and looks to have found a good chance to get off the mark tonight.
Full tips for today’s racing are detailed below.
