Sedgefield Placepot: Tuesday November 26

Racing comes from Segefield today
Brian Ellison trains one of Joe's selections

Timeform bring you their suggested permutation for racing at Sedgefield on Tuesday...

"Pindar has been in good heart since his win at Worcester in August and makes his first start for a new yard today.."

12:20 - It's a two-and-a-half mile novices' hurdle under consideration at Sedgefield first up and Heath Hunter looks plenty short enough on what he's achieved thus far, especially as the step-up in trip seems a surprising move. It's better to go for Oscar Tanner for our purposes, who made a winning hurdling bow for Martin Todhunter at January and was third under a penalty next time out. Uppercut de L'Orne is another at a bigger price, who we are yet to see the best of and will have come on for his run at Hexham last time.

12:50 - It's an interesting juvenile hurdle up next which looks a match between Ainsi Fideles and Hawk High, but Magic Skyline is the possibly surprise a few, showing something to work on when a staying-on fourth at Leicester on his hurdles bow last week and looking open to further improvement. 

13:20 - Sue Smith's record at Sedgefield is too good to ignore, and Rattlin arrives here on the back of a career-best performance over hurdles. She makes her chase debut in what looks an otherwise ordinary contest and is the only selection for those reasons.

13:50 - The staying  handicap chase which follows has the potential to be a trappy contest, and the first selection is Call Me Mulligan who should strip a lot fitter for his reappearance at Market Rasen. He has been given plenty of slack by the assessor and with first time cheekpieces on today a bold run is expected. Heez A Steel also gets the nod after his creditable second over C&D in April and a respectable run for his new yard over hurdles a fortnight ago. 

14:20 - Amir Pasha looks to have been given an excellent opportunity to follow up on his recent C&D win in the handicap hurdle for Micky Hammond. He still looks well treated on the pick of his form but isn't one for maximum faith, and thus the second selection is the likeable Pindar who has been in good heart since his win at Worcester in August and makes his first start for a new yard today. 

14:50 - Whilst Crackerjack Lad looks lightly raced and capable of significant improvement for a horse of his age, the one to take a chance on is Bob's Dream, who is 4 lb better off than when Jim Tango beat him at Kelso last time, and the selection will have come on markedly for the run. 

Selections:

12:20 - 1,11
12:50 - 7
13:20 - 2
13:50 - 1,2
14:20 - 2,4
14:50 - 3
