Jelly set for Lingfield win
Nick Robson is backing Timmy Murphy to ride a winner over hurdles with Jelly Monger on Tuesday, as he provides a tip for every race.
HUNTINGDON: 1.10 Captain Felix, 1.45 Copperfacejack, 2.20 All Set To Go, 2.50 Anatol, 3.20 Monsart, 3.55 Guiding Stars.
LINGFIELD: 12.50 Peggies Venture, 1.20 Phobiaphiliac, 1.55 Twenty Eight Guns, 2.30 Jelly Monger, 3.00 Theatre Mill, 3.30 Eminent Poet, 4.05 Flashman.
NEWCASTLE: 3.40 Musaanada, 4.15 Volta Do Mar, 4.45 Sulafah, 5.15 Polish Empress, 5.45 Dark Intention, 6.15 Zanetto, 6.45 A J Cook, 7.15 Tinsill.
SEDGEFIELD: 1.00 Free Stone Hill, 1.35 Teo Vivo, 2.10 LE BREUIL (NAP), 2.40 Blakemount, 3.10 Fool To Cry, 3.45 Tomkevi.
DOUBLE: Le Breuil and Jelly Monger.
Le Breuil catches the eye in the Newcastle Flooring Novices' Hurdle at Sedgefield.
Ben Pauling thinks highly of him and he lived up to his reputation when winning his bumper by 10 lengths at Warwick.
He looked ready for hurdles when only fourth at Bangor under a penalty and he could be a decent novice.
In his younger days, Sue Smith's Blakemount looked booked for a very bright future.
Injury has prevented him from realising that potential, but he finally returned to winning ways in March.
Up just 3lb, he is still only eight so there is time yet for him to progress on his reappearance in the Nortonthorpe Ind Park Sir Benjamin Wright Handicap Chase.
Grand National-winning rider Timmy Murphy makes a fleeting return over obstacles in the Lingfield Park "Flat Jockeys" Handicap Hurdle and his mount Jelly Monger should be backed.
Trained by Dominic Ffrench Davis, Jelly Monger has taken to hurdling really well and is far less exposed than most of his rivals.
Given the advantage of Murphy in the saddle, he should be hard to beat.
All Set To Go gets the nod in the Omni Security Michaelmas Handicap Hurdle at Huntingdon.
A smart sort on the level for Irish handler Andrew Oliver, the Paul Nicholls-trained five-year-old won three times during his debut season over jumps last term before filling the runner-up spot in the Swinton Hurdle at Haydock in May.
He made an encouraging return to action when third at Chepstow last month and with that run under his belt, he should be hard to beat.
The champion trainer might also find the target with Anatol in the Tom Jones Memorial HTJ Centre Ltd Chase.
He has been off the track since finishing third on his British debut at Ascot over a year ago, but does not look badly handicapped and plenty of the stable's runners have fared well first time out this year.
William Haggas appears to have found another winnable opportunity for Musaanada in the Bowburn Hotel Fillies' Handicap at Newcastle.
The Sea The Stars filly is all about stamina as her dam is closely related to Ascot Gold Cup winner Fame And Glory.
Not sighted at two, she made her debut in a mile-and-a-half maiden at Kempton in September.
Appearing green early on, as any horse is entitled to at the first attempt, the penny really began to drop in the home straight.
She ended up winning comfortably by a length from a rival rated 76, and it goes without saying she will be more streetwise on this occasion.
Perhaps Haggas' biggest strength as a trainer is his ability to run his horses in the right races and this filly finds herself up against some thoroughly exposed types, rather than being thrust into Listed company on just her second start.
A mark of 75 may seriously underestimate her.
Paul Hanagan rides Musaanada and can double up on Roger Varian's Sulafah in the Ramside Event Catering Maiden Fillies' Stakes.
There are some very nicely-bred newcomers in the race, but Sulafah's experience should come to the fore.
After a quiet debut in a decent event, she stepped up to finish second at Newmarket last month.
She got drawn into a battle some way out that day and was picked off late by the eventual winner, but if held on for longer this time, she can open her account.
Zanetto has not progressed after a very good reappearance at York but he is now well handicapped.
John Quinn's sprinter was fourth at the Dante meeting in a hot race, yet he can run here off an 8lb lower mark.
With Quinn's string in decent form and from a good draw in stall three, Zanetto has plenty going for him in the Hardwick Hall Hotel Handicap.
