Friday 16th October

A nice winner yesterday with Bannixtown Glory, advised at 12/1, winning at 17/2 coming home nicely up at Carlisle and always nice to see the analysis pretty much spot on.
 
There is NH at Uttoxeter and Fakenham today, we're not too keen on anything on the Flat in UK or Ireland, nor the All Weather, and with smallish fields at Fakenham, will focus on Uttoxeter.
 
There are big field Handicap Chases at 1.50 and 2.53 but a strange anomaly in the 1.50, a 2 mile 6 furlong Novice Hurdle, where very one of the runners makes seasonal debut!. That makes it almost impossible to figure but there are some very nice Novice Chasers out in that race, so one to follow and Track. Ian looks at the race and suggests a few for your notebook, and although NO TIPS in the race, points out a couple at big Odds that could outrun them today, if not having the scope of some of the better long term prospects.
 
Robin is again in the saddle for the sole tip race
