Barry Geraghty - Todays Racing Tips

Former top jump jockey Barry Geraghty gives his tips on todays racing for William Hill. We rate his tips and offer up some alternatives.

Barry Geraghty gives horse racing tips after Saturday’s cards from Uttoxeter, Kempton and Thurles. Can he improve on his Cheltenham selections.

2:25 Uttoxeter 

bet365 Handicap Hurdle

"I like SAINT DAVY (2:25pm) here, and I’ve been a fan of his for a while – he looks progressive and is four from five over hurdles. He won really well in Ludlow on his previous start, but he stepped up again at Sandown last time. Testing ground should hold no fears for him and he’d be my pick in a competitive handicap. "

Geraghty: SAINT DAVY - 5/1

Tip Rating: C+

Our Tip: HITITI - 16/1 (E/W)

3:00 Uttoxeter 

bet365 Midlands Grand National Handicap Chase

"In the Midlands National (3:00pm), I like AUTONOMOUS CLOUD. He pulled-up when he bled in the Welsh National but before that he had some good form, and he comes into this race fresh, which is a positive. He’s got plenty of good course form on heavy ground and I think if he can progress on his previous form then he should take the beating."

Geraghty: AUTONOMOUS CLOUD - 6/1

Tip Rating: D

Our Tip: MR INCREDIBLE - 11/2

3:35 Uttoxeter 

bet365 Novices' Handicap Chase

"Gavin Cromwell’s Evies Vladimir will enjoy stepping up in trip and looks to have a good chance but there could be each way value to be had with FORTUNEFAVORSDBOLD . Christian Williams’ runner has recorded two good wins on very soft ground in her last two starts and might be worth siding with."


Tip Rating: B+


2:10 Kempton 

Read Nicky Henderson's Exclusive Unibet Blog Handicap Hurdle

"TITAN DISCOVERY finished a good second to Jingko Blue two starts back at Sandown and then won impressively on soft ground at the same track last time. I think he’s progressive and looks the one to beat here. "

Geraghty: TITAN DISCOVERY - 9/2

Tip Rating: B

Our Tip: KATERIA - 8/1

2:45 Kempton 

Unibet New And Improved Bet Builder Handicap Chase 

"FLEGMATIK  didn’t look like he got home over three miles on soft ground at Kempton last time, so I think this step back down in trip is going to suit him. He beat Chianti Classico two starts back and that form now looks very strong with that horse going on to land the Ultima at Cheltenham this week."

Geraghty: FLEGMATIK - 9/4

Tip Rating: A-

Our Tip: FLEGMATIK - 9/4

2:30 Thurles 

Pierce Molony Memorial Novice Chase

"MISTER POLICEMAN  put in a good performance last time to beat Arctic Bresil in Punchestown last month. Arctic Bresil did that form no damage when running a good race in the Plate on Thursday at Cheltenham. While Mister Policeman was a little disappointing behind Quilixios on his previous start, he is a horse that is highly thought of, so I’m willing to forget that performance. Lucid Dreams has had a busy campaign and did run well behind Ash Tree Meadow on his last start but his performances before that weren’t of the same level so I do question that form a little bit."

Geraghty: MISTER POLICEMAN - 1/2

Tip Rating: B

Our Tip: LUCID DREAMS -10/3
