    Racing UK Tipstar Final 2017

    Tomorrow morning I will head to Cheltenham Racecourse as one of six finalists for this year's Racing UK Tipstar competition. I have been given the 12:45pm race to preview and review live on Racing UK. My selection for the race will be explained live on air and published on Twitter @chrisbaker1984. Due to time constraints I will be unable to email it out, post it on the SBC Forum or add it to my website.

    I can be backed at prices ranging from 4/1 to 7/1 to win the competition and profiles of the finalists can be viewed at https://www.racinguk.com/news/meet-the-super-six-who-have-made-it-through-to-our-tipstar-final

    Saturday 9th December

    There are three bets for Saturday's racing.

    Sandown - 2.20pm

    UNISON (NAP)

    • Impressive 50% strike rate having won six of his twelve starts over hurdles.

    • Ran on strongly to win in good style on his seasonal reappearance last time out.

    • Raised 6lbs by the handicapper and deservedly steps up in class today but remains open to more improvement.

    EVENING HUSH

    • Second in a Grade 2 hurdle at Kempton in February and although she was well beaten in her final two starts of the season, one of those came in the Grade 1 Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham.

    • Potentially well handicapped for today's race and has conditions to suit.

    Recommendations:

    UNISON; 1 point win bet at 20/1 (Bet Victor, Black Type and Betfair Sports).

    EVENING HUSH: 0.5 point win bet at 33/1 (Bet 365 and Bet Victor). Available at 28/1 generally elsewhere.

    Shortlist:

    1. Unison

    2. Evening Hush

    3. Jenkins

    Sandown - 3.30pm

    SOUTHFIELD THEATRE (NB)

    • Made a very pleasing seasonal reappearance to finish fourth of the 16 runners at Wincanton last month.

    • Effectively 9lbs lower today when taking in to account the jockeys claim and also drops down in class.

    Recommendation:

    SOUTHFIELD THEATRE; 1 point win bet at 11/1 (General, including Bet 365 and Paddy Power).

    Shortlist:

    1. Southfield Theatre

    2. The Happy Chappy

    3. Houblon Des Obeaux

  • Wednesday 6th December 2017

    Tuesday's result:

    • Tara View - Placed 3rd. Advised at 8/1 (14/1 SP).

    1 point loss.

    There is just one bet for Wednesday's racing.

    Ludlow - 2.05pm

    BETTER DAYS (NAP)

    • Won over three miles at Kempton last time out to take his record to 4-11 over fences.

    • Should be well suited by conditions at Ludlow as all of his victories have come on good to soft ground or better.

    • Runs off bottom weight and receives 10lbs+ from his rivals when taking in to account the jockey's 5lb claim.

    Recommendation:

    BETTER DAYS; 1 point win bet at 13/2 (General, including Bet 365 and William Hill).

    Shortlist:

    1. Better Days

    2. Moss On The Mill

    3. Dueling Banjos

  • Tuesday 5th December 2017

    There is just one bet for Tuesday's racing.

    Southwell - 1.50pm

    TARA VIEW (NAP)

    • Progressive mare who won four consecutive races between May 2016 and February of this year.

    • Ended last season with a respectable fourth place finish (16 runners) in a novice Grade 2 contest at Newbury.

    • Pulled up on her seasonal reappearance at Wincanton last month but may have been unsuited by the testing ground and should find conditions at Southwell much more to her liking.

    • Several of Alan King's runners in the past few months have shown improved form on their second start and she should also appreciate this step up in trip.

    • The only mount on the card for jockey Wayne Hutchinson, who has been aboard for all four career victories.

    Recommendation:

    TARA VIEW; 1 point win bet at 8/1 (Bet 365, Coral and Totesport).

    Shortlist:

    1. Tara View

    2. Red Rising

    3. Ganbei
