It’s the inaugural running of the new Ladbrokes Trophy on Saturday, the new name for the race that was known as the Hennessey, and we’ve a tip for that race as well as tips for two more of the ITV Races in a double-header from Newbury and Newcastle.
High Bridge has been raised 4lb for his third at Ascot last time, but the form of that races has worked out so well that he could have got away lightly. The winner Elgin has since won the Greatwood Hurdle off a 7lb higher mark, whilst the second Limited Reserve has won by 8-lengths at Haydock, and the fifth Verdana Blue has won by 3-lengths back at Ascot. High Bridge is also 2 from 2 over course and distance, and this race looks sure to have been on his agenda for a while, whilst the stable won the big novices chase here on Friday.
Tip: High Bridge win @ 7/2 PaddyPower or BetVictor
Whisper didn’t immediately take to chasing, but looked a natural on his second try at it last season, when he won his first two chases, before chasing home Might Bite at the Cheltenham Festival and Aintree Festival. That’s high-class form and, though 161 is a high-mark to try and win this race off, it’s actually 6lb lower than the highest-mark he achieved as a top-class hurdler. He also proved his well-being by winning on his seasonal debut, and the second has won by 7-lengths since. Meanwhile, Nicky Henderson has trained 2 of the last 5 winners, one of which was rated just 1lb lower.
Tip: Whisper each-way @ 8/1 PaddyPower or BetVictor
Bishops Road likes a slog in the mud and, after being raised 10lb for winning the 2016 Betfred Grand National Trial off 144, he gets his ideal conditions again just as the handicapper drops him back to a mark of 144 after 6 win-less runs. He also ran well in the race last year’s renewal off that mark of 154, and this year’s renewal looks nowhere near as strong a contest.
Tip: Bishops Road each-way @ 5/1 PaddyPower or BetVictor
