Robin Goodfellow’s Racing Tips: Best bets for Friday, December 4

Robin Goodfellow’s Racing Tips: Best bets for Friday, December 4

Trainer Alan King has won five of the last 11 runnings of the Ballymore Winter Novices’ Hurdle and he has an excellent chance of extending that record with VALLERES (Sandown, 2.25).

The Grade Two contest is a tight affair and it is unknown just how good Star Gate and Sending Love are.

Valleres might offer value if punters overreact to his Ludlow defeat last time, where he was beaten by over five lengths by Threeunderthrufive.

Then, Valleres did not suit the good ground and his jumping faltered in the closing stages.

Rainy conditions mean Sandown offers a much stiffer stamina test than Ludlow.

Earlier on the card, Wetherby winner FUNAMBULE SIVOLA (Sandown, nap, 1.50) is capable of defying the 7lb penalty.

Altior faces five rivals in tomorrow’s Betfair Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown for the second time. Leading the opposition is Paul Nicholls-trained Politologue.
