Hereford quick tips in full:

18:00 (Hereford) Sanitiser

18:30 (Hereford) Stay If U Want To

19:00 (Hereford) My Chiquita

19:30 (Hereford) Cooleenymore

20:00 (Hereford) Seigneur Des As

20:30 (Hereford) Famoso.



18:00 (Hereford) Sanitiser

Sanitiser is a talented multiple flat winner set to make the breakthrough over the jumps in the Daily Racing Specials@Planetsportbet Novices' Handicap Hurdle.

Showed promise past two hurdling attempts and from a lenient mark is considered.

Ellerton was outclassed tackling a Cheltenham Group 2 in latest outing. The ex-flat winner holds potential.

Smurfette disappointed bitterly making her first handicap appearance at Market Rasen. Still maintains interest on earlier form.

Easter Junction also disappointed delivering his most recent outing. Received a break subsequently and had wind surgery. Might do better.


18:30 (Hereford) Stay If U Want To

Jumpers flat race winner Stay If U Want To finished second in two maiden hurdles, including at Hereford.

Was also entered among handicap company on this card so might be significant that connections have chosen the Best Odds Guaranteed At Planetsportbet Maiden Hurdle.

Dirty Den is also a jumpers flat race winner. Made his hurdling debut in the Group 1 Boodles Anniversary 4-Y-O Juvenile Hurdle at Aintree, but finished last of 5. The four-year-old tackles more realistic contest this time.

Lunanera has been running well between 1m and 1m2f on the flat and is dangerous to underestimate on hurdling debut.

Ikigai Star can also be considered after a respectable first hurdling attempt.


19:00 (Hereford) My Chiquita

The Ben Brookhouse-trained My Chicquita is worth watching in the Liz And Izzy’s HOAP Podcast Handicap Hurdle.

She has won both outings over hurdles and has been running on the level so will arrive very fit.


19:30 (Hereford) Cooleenymore


Cooleenymore won a mares chase by 17 lengths at Exeter two runs ago. Finished second on better ground hurdling since.

The eight-year-old is higher in the weights now but appealing in current form in the Download The Planetsportbet App Mares' Handicap Hurdle.

Chatshow Host was second tackling a shorter trip at Haydock in latest. Also stays this journey while the dual point-to-point winner remains unexposed with hurdles.

Minniemum looked set to win when unseating at the last at Catterick in January. Held excuses when pulled up since and might resume her progress.


20:00 (Hereford) Seigneur Des As 

The top of the betting is congested with half a dozen likely contenders, with the Warren Greatrex-trained Pilot Show the tentative early favourite, after showing well on his reappearance over this course and distance 23 days ago.

His creditable second was a welcome return to form following two pulled-up efforts earlier this year, which had cast a shadow over the three other runner-up spots with which this capable performer has rounded off 2023.

Of his rivals, Can’t Beat History looks a serious threat if able to hit the ground running after a seven-month absence and reproduce the performance that saw him romp to a 14-length course-distance win here in October.

However, that success (and his early win at Market Rasen) was on good-to-firm ground, and today’s softer ground looks more likely to suit useful French Raider Seigneur Des As.

This capable six-year-old won over fences at Ludlow just over a year ago, and after failing to replicate that performance in five subsequent starts, he is back to that last winning mark here.

He is also back up to the three-mile trip over which he landed that victory 14 months ago, and with his burden enhanced further by the three-pound allowance of Bradley Harris.


20:30 (Hereford) Famoso

With the possible exception of the two rank outsiders, a case could be made for the majority of the seven market leaders, of whom Jet Of Dreams is strongly fancied to build on some recent near misses under the astutely booked Brian Hughes.

Ferrybridge is expected to bounce back from a fifth-placed hurdling outing at Kempton, and this return to larger obstacles is set to suit, especially now reunited with Lilly Pinchin, who was on board for her last chasing effort that had seen the six-year-old win by just shy of 10 lengths at Huntingdon a month earlier.

If those two make the frame as expected, then the most likely candidate to join them is Matt Sheppard’s reliable performer Famoso, who always seems to put in a good shift and is invariably in contention at the business end of his races.

Famoso has not been outside the top five in any of his 13 outings since last August, making the frame nine times, of which three culminated in a parade around the winner’s enclosure.

The last of those successes was the most impressive of all, a 7½-length romp over this course and distance in January, with his 12 rivals strung out far behind him.

Regular rider Stan Sheppard reunites here, having been absent from the saddle 12 days ago, when Famoso was last seen finishing fifth of 12 (less than five lengths behind the winner) in the Molly Ollys Chase at Warwick.

Always a willing performer, it would be no surprise to see Famoso in the mix again here, despite remaining six pounds above his last winning mark.
