November 19 Racing Tips and Odds: Cabot Cliffs to hit the heights for Dan Skelton at Ascot

Planet Sport head to Ascot for tipster Pete Farries' picks. There’s no top hats and tails here, just warm coats as Pete doffs his cap to Dan Skelton and Fergal O’Brien on Friday, November 19.

Here's a quick snapshot of Friday's tips. Just click on the links below to place a wager with Planet Sport Bet.

Pull Again Green (12.20 Ascot)

Faivoir (12.55 Ascot)

Cabot Cliffs (14.40 Ascot)

Pete starts with the first at Ascot with a Fergal O'Brien import from Ireland. The five-year-old duly won on debut in the UK and now heads to Ascot to test his progression.

12.20 Ascot - Pull Again Green

Pete is keen on Pull Again Green, who won first time out in the UK at Uttoxeter.

Pull Again Green was sent to England after winning a nice Wexford bumper and looks the type who could shift up a gear in Class 3 company.

Paddy Brennan gets the leg up and here are a few of the reasons why Pull Again Green can do the business in Berkshire.

"Pull Again Green was superb on debut, won at Wexford, was then handed a penalty at Uttoxeter. Defied that, won really well, I'm right behind Pull Again Green, not just now but it's one that I'm going to be keeping an eye on further in the future.

Probably not a Grade 1 runner but certainly a very interesting sort. Doctor Ken is the favourite here and yes Doctor Ken looks hard to beat but I don't think the value sits with the current favourite and I have got a couple of questions as well about the Olly Murphy runner."

12.55 Ascot - Faivoir

Dan Skelton is the recipient of two of Pete's picks and it is easy to see why with the Warwickshire yard really getting going.

Faivoir was on a four-timer before losing out to Annual Invictus, who has won against since and Pete fancies the Skelton six-year-old to regain his form.

Harry Skelton gets the leg up as usual with a full brief from his brother Dan.

Here's a snippet of why Faivoir can be a fan favourite at Ascot.

"Faivoir looks like an absolutely superb way in for Dan Skelton. Was on a great winning run, including at Cheltenham a couple of runs ago. Three in a row, was absolutely flying, then finished fourth in a handicap debut at Cheltenham last time around.

"I'm not entirely worried about that, Annual Invictus won and won well that day as well, was an impressive runner…There's not too many in this race I think can take Faivoir on, in fact every time I look, I just keep coming back to the Dan Skelton runner. That hat-trick of wins was superb."

14.40 Ascot - Cabot Cliffs

Pete reckons Cabot Cliffs can finish the treble off on a decent day's jumping at Ascot.

The Team Skelton four-year-old is always there or there abouts and made an Autumn reappearance with a third in a Class 2 at Chepstow in October.

That may have just been a lung opener for today and the following is a snapshot of why Cabot Cliffs can be at the tip of the treble.

"For those of you looking to put a treble together here at Planet Sport Bet on Friday, I'm going to give you, I think, a very interesting runner.

"Now re-emerged last time around after seven months off, hadn't run since April and got a very creditable third placed finish…

"I think this could turn out to be a front runners' race and if that is the case then Cabot Cliffs is going to be the one to beat, loves being out the front and Dan Skelton, I'm sure, will try to get the runner there as soon as possible."
