A weekend of quality jumps racing in Britain continues on Sunday afternoon with a seven-race card from Exeter and MansionBet are the proud sponsors of all races on the day.
Action gets underway at 12.30pm with the last race set to go to post at 3.30pm and conditions are forecast to be ‘Good-good to soft in places on hurdle course’.
You can watch it all via live streaming when logged into MansionBet, alongside every race from the UK and Ireland, and our tipster has a race-by-race look at Sunday’s Exeter card.
12.30 – MansionBet Proud To Support British Racing Juvenile Hurdle (2m½f)
The newcomers to the jumping game are seemingly the ones to focus on here, with those benefitting from experience failing to set a high bar. Trainer Nick Williams won this race in 2017 and his attractively-bred Network filly I’M THE DIVA makes sound appeal on paper getting weight from her rivals. Romeo’s Bond represents a Milton Harris team going along very nicely and is another to note.
Selection: I’m The Diva
1.00 – MansionBet Bet 10 Get 20 Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase (3m)
Philip Hobbs and Paul Nicholls look to have the key players here in Gosheven and OSCARS MOONSHINE. The former seems sure to develop into a chaser but race-fitness favours the Ditcheat inmate. He was second last month at Newton Abbot on his seasonal return and also has the scope to suggest he’ll jump fences without issue. Neither he nor Gosheven will have a worry seeing out this trip but perhaps that run out will be telling.
Selection: Oscars Moonshine
1.30 – MansionBet Faller Insurance Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle (2m7f)
The Ben Case-trained GAZETTE BOURGEOISE readily saw off runner-up So Said I at Stratford three weeks ago, the pair miles clear of everything else, and while she now concedes 7lb to her re-opposing rival, that might not be enough to turn things around given the ease with which she put the race to bed. Anthony Honeyball’s Swincombe Fleat had some promising bumper form last season and is one to be noted now switching to this discipline.
Selection: Gazette Bourgeoise
2.00 – Mansionbet Best Odds Guaranteed Handicap Chase (3m)
Tea Time On Mars is an out-and-out stayer and might want further than this ideally, while he also tends to need a run. St Erney was a C&D winner on his return to action at the start of the month and should be in the mix again from 5lb higher but WHITE MOON might be worth a chance for Colin Tizzard’s team. Last season was a write off for him but the handicapper has cut him some slack and he has gone well fresh before. If his jumping holds up, a race like this is within his grasp.
Selection: White Moon
2.30 – Mansionbet Watch And Bet Handicap Chase (2m1½f)
Black Kalanisi was second at Stratford last month on yard debut for Fergal O’Brien and has been eased 2lb for that effort, while he sports new cheekpieces now. He’s likely to lay down a challenge but with the Tizzard string rejuvenated this season, KILLER KANE – a course winner over hurdles back in March – is tipped to build on last month’s Carlisle third on his fencing bow and take this prize under Brendan Powell.
Selection: Killer Kane
3.00 – Follow MansionBet On Twitter Handicap Hurdle (2m½f)
Mi Laddo justified market support at Taunton last month to score under Paddy Brennan for the Milton Harris team despite getting the final jump wrong and a 6lb rise seems fair with the stable in good form. Meanwhile, Bourbali is up 7lb for his Chepstow win last time and is another fine contender for Colin Tizzard on the day. HOPE YOU DO has shown enough in three qualifying runs to anticipate he’ll defy a mark of 104 before too long and Philip Hobbs’ French import might find some improvement on his handicap bow.
Selection: Hope You Do
3.30 – Download The Mansionbet App Handicap Hurdle (2m5½f)
Big on numbers with 19 declared for the finale, but plenty of these have work to do if hoping to win. FLUTISTE represents a trainer in Claire Harris that is in fine fettle and the 6YO improved on second start at Chepstow (2m3½f, good) last month when third behind the above mentioned Bourbali. He had a few of these rivals behind too and, from 2lb higher, may build on that for his in-form handler.
