Cops the call at Ffos Las
Anita Chambers has a tip for every race on Wednesday, with Call The Cops fancied to make a winning debut over fences.
Call The Cops can get off to a perfect start over fences
CATTERICK: 12.30 Leading Score, 1.00 Professor Plum, 1.30 Does It In Style, 2.00 Oscar O'Scar, 2.30 Tara View, 3.00 Laissez Dire, 3.30 Hit And Run.
FFOS LAS: 1.20 For Instance, 1.50 Babeny Bridge, 2.20 Call The Cops, 2.50 Southport, 3.20 Copper Birch, 3.55 Esspresso.
KEMPTON: 4.25 Deer Song, 4.55 Free Zone, 5.25 Endless Charm, 5.55 Ghaseedah, 6.25 Habbad, 6.55 Rightway, 7.25 Hold Hands, 7.55 Arcanista.
LINGFIELD: 12.10 Tarseekh, 12.40 Bargain Buy, 1.10 Ninety Years Young, 1.40 PINZOLO (NAP), 2.10 Take Two, 2.40 Isharah, 3.10 Plus Night, 3.40 Leyland.
DOUBLE: Pinzolo and Laissez Dire.
Tara View can bring up her hat-trick in the Watch Racing UK Anywhere Mares' Novices' Hurdle at Catterick.
Successful at Bangor and Ludlow on her last two outings, Alan King's charge was trying hurdles for the first time on the latter occasion and put up a satisfactory performance in a reasonable heat.
She only won by a neck that day but likely still has plenty to learn and can defy her 7lb winners' penalty.
King can make it a double as Laissez Dire makes his British bow in the Come Racing New Year's Day Beginners' Chase.
The four-year-old gets his handy age allowance as he is pitched over fences after winning twice over hurdles in France earlier this year.
Grade Three company proved beyond him at Auteuil back in March but this looks a nice starting point on these shores.
Call The Cops is worth supporting as he tries his hand over fences in the Vindico Beginners' Chase at Ffos Las.
The switch to the bigger obstacles looks an obvious call for Nicky Henderson's charge as he had perhaps gone as far as he could over hurdles.
Winner of the 2015 Pertemps Final at Cheltenham and subsequently runner-up in a Grade Three at Aintree, Call The Cops made a belated start to last season with a rating of 153.
That mark proved beyond him as he just could not recapture his best form, finishing down the field on both his runs before again turning in a lacklustre effort at Cheltenham on his return last month.
His recent outing could have put a nice edge on him ahead of this task though, and it is worth giving Call The Cops a try over fences.
Pinzolo can put his recent run of lacklustre form behind him by scoring his first win in over 18 months in the Betway Conditions Stakes at Lingfield.
The five-year-old was a horse of some ability in past seasons, winning his first two starts as a juvenile for Godolphin before being hiked up to Group One level for a disappointing effort in the Racing Post Trophy.
Connections persisted with their Classic hopes for the son of Monsun and after winning a Newmarket Listed heat, he went on to finish down the field in both the Epsom and German Derbies in 2014.
Campaigned at a lesser level since then, Pinzolo was a dual all-weather winner in 2015 but could not make the same sort of impact earlier this year on synthetics before trying his hand on the turf over summer.
He did not run too badly, but nevertheless was moved on to Ismail Mohammed's care for whom he put in a fair debut when third at Goodwood in October.
Pinzolo perhaps just needed that run after being off the track since July and while he is some way short of his best judged on official marks right now, he may well not be finished with yet.
A switch back to 10 furlongs on Polytrack could prove a shrewd move for a stable that has revitalised horses such as this in the past.
Bargain Buy can return from a break in style by landing the 32Red.com Fillies' Handicap.
Winner of two of her four starts in the first part of the year, William Haggas' charge has been off the track since finishing fourth over a mile at Yarmouth in June.
She appeared to just run out of gas in the final furlong that day so the drop back to seven furlongs here makes sense and she could be one to make hay over the winter months.
Habbad can make it fourth time lucky in the 32Red On The App Store Nursery Handicap at Kempton.
He has found maiden company tough going for Richard Hannon but switching to the handicap sphere can see him finally break his duck.
