Horse Racing Tips: Back huge 120/1 Hexham each-way double for Tuesday

Hexham
Alan is playing a big price each-way double today using the Extra Place Special at Hexham

Alan Dudman is off to one of his favourite tracks Hexham for Tuesday evening's card, and has picked out two horses to follow at big prices...

  • Using Extra Place Special at Hexham

  • Shirocco can break his duck - finally

  • 10/1 pick for second leg in Hexham finale


Hexham - 17:50 - Back Dr Shirocco

Hills Of Gold was another second yesterday for the column - finishing runner-up at a BSP of 7.6 and hitting a low in-running of 1.75/7.

We're at Hexham for two races tonight and playing the each-way angle, and I am taking long-standing maiden Dr Shirocco to finally break his duck.

This is low grade stuff, and Shirocco is more bad doctor than good with his 0-24 record.

However, Patrick Wadge is on today and he's got a fairly good partnership with the horse with three seconds together at Musselburgh. I'm a huge admirer of young Wadge and he rode a very canny race on Petite Rhapsody last week at Perth.

Dr Shirocco is back up in distance today, jumping up from 2m4f/2m5f to 3m, but I rated one of his better runs over the marathon 3m3f at Sedgefield - not quite getting home.

He doesn't mind good ground or good to soft and was close to getting his head in front at Kelso last time over 2m5f.

Rather harshly the handicapper has raised him 2lb, which is frankly ridiculous for a 0-24 maiden. Hopefully he can defy that rise.

Back Dr Shirocco EW

10/1

Hexham - 20:50 - Back Kilbrainy

The 20:50 at Hexham is an Extra Place Special and we can use the four places to our advantage as Kilbrainey was drifting this morning out to 9/1.

The favourite Chemical Warfare won with a ton in hand at Newcastle recently, and at 7/4, the field in behind could be playing for places, and without the market leader, it's very open.

Kilbrainy ran over 2m4f last time at Perth, and it was good to see him settle a bit better in a race as previously he'd been an eager horse and often over-raced.

It appeared he didn't stay in the soft conditions, and coming back down in distance at Hexham is an angle I love to epxlore.

There's a chance he might improve too for the better ground and as top weight, he sneaks in here from 0-105 to 0-100.

He finished second at Musselburgh in the winter in a far stronger race, running on late over 2m4f there. On that run, he has a big chance of at least hitting a place.

Back Kilbrainy in the 20:50 at Hexham

10/1
