WILL BRIAN HUGHES BE THE MARKET LEADER?

I travel to Market Rasen for Four Rides Today.  The First couldn’t be more appropriately named, and will hopefully get me and you off to the perfect start to the day! See if you can glean any Racing Tips from my information.

2:15 BREAKFAST

He made the perfect start to his hurdling career for me at the track in early August, traveling and jumping well.  He has improved in his work at home and I am looking forward to the ride.    My horse will give them all food for thought.

MAIN THREATS

Breakfast faces a stiffer task today against four-timer seeking Cracker Factory and also competitive Jack Regan.

3:25 SPECIAL PREP

A dual Irish Point’s winner who was finally rewarded for consistent hurdle runs with victory at Southwell last October.  He was off the track for almost a year prior to his comeback run at the start of August and should be fitter today.  He is on handicap debut and should have an e.w chance in this open affair.  My horse is open to plenty of improvement and should be competitive.

MAIN THREATS

Chase winners Candy Burg and Not A Role Model look the main opponents.

4:00 CAIUS MARCIUS 

Caius Marcius got his reward for a series of runner-up finishes when scoring at Perth in Mid August when I was in the saddle.  He was claiming his fifth hurdle success and stayed on in determined fashion to prevail by a neck.  He is a tough genuine sort and should get the strong pace he likes today.

MAIN THREATS

This is a higher grade than last time out and he needs to step up again to deal with L’Inganno Felice and Innocent Touch.

5:10 leofric

Leofric, a gelded son of Galileo makes his racecourse debut in the concluding bumper.  An expensive yearling costing 215,000 guineas he is a rare National Hunt runner for David O’Meara and is bred to win races.  He should be capable of a big run in this type of contest.

MAIN THREATS

Previous bumper winner Get An Oscar from the Bowen yard looks the main threat.
