Nick Shiambouros hopes to end his current stint in the tipping chair on a high.He has a strong fancy from Huntingdon and a big priced selection from Doncaster...


"I think there is a lot more to come from this promising individual and is reasonably priced at 3.3512/5 on the exchange"

Back Minella Awards at 3.3512/5 in the 15:05 at Huntingdon

13:45 Doncaster - Another Frontier

Another Frontier could run well at a price in this competitive looking novices' hurdle.

This Nigel Twiston-Davies gelding put in a much improved effort last time out when finishing second to Battle Of Shiloh at Ludlow. He looked like getting to the winner at the final flight, but ran out of steam close home.

He is heading in the right direction and represents good value at 9.08/1 on the exchange.

Chase End Charlie is the favourite at 3.55. He won a maiden hurdle easily over this course last month and deserves his position at the head of the market. The one negative is that he does have to concede weight all round.

Rock On Oscar has something to prove after being turned over at odds on at Taunton in December. He looked the likely winner approaching the final flight, but did not find a great deal off the bridle.

He travels well in his races, but appears to have his own ideas about the game. I recommend laying him in running at 2.01/1.


15:05 Huntingdon - Minella Awards

Minella Awards should go close in this interesting contest.

This gelding finished an excellent second to the progressive Champers On Ice at Newbury in November. He delivered a strong challenge on the run to the line, but the winner found a little extra close home.

I think there is a lot more to come from this promising individual and is reasonably priced at 3.3512/5 on the exchange.

Dan Skelton sends out North Hill Harry. Last time out at Cheltenham he beat Baden in great style. He took the lead over the final flight and pulled clear to win with the minimum of fuss.

He is improving with racing, but does have to concede weight to the selection.
