Todays James Bowen Horse Racing Tips

Race 1 Market Rasen 13:22 Novices Hurdle (Class 4) 21f

365365276 Foxinthebox
Runner-up sole start between the flags and filled the same spot (just failed) in an Aintree bumper on Rules bow in May. Again, showed plenty when fourth on Warwick hurdle bow and likely to improve.
10-12Aidan ColemanOlly Murphylocked1.88/12.5/133
3653653911 Lounge Lizard
Encouraging start to career when second in 3-runner Haydock bumper in March. Similarly showed up well for a long way when fourth on hurdles bow at Aintree in October and he looks a sure-fire improver.
10-12A P HeskinHenry Dalylocked3.33/12.25/132
3653652139 Harry Du Berlais
Shirocco gelding. Dam (h85), point winner, closely related to smart hurdler/high-class chaser (2m-21f winner) Mr Mole. Easy winner sole start in Irish points and one to note in betting for clues.
10-12Charlie HammondNick Kentlocked6.5/111/169
365365191 Adjournment
Runner-up both starts in points a year apart and has run to a fair level both starts over hurdles, not ideally placed when third at Wetherby (19.7f) 19 days ago, and remains with potential.
10-12Henry BrookeOliver Greenalllocked9/17.5/117
36536525414 Twistedfirestarter
Went backwards from a mildly encouraging debut in bumpers when only seventh of 10 at Huntingdon in March. Significantly up in trip for hurdle debut.
10-12 James BowenRichard Spencerlocked33/180/1142
365365278 Hardy Boy
Out of a winning hurdler and showed some ability when fourth in a Warwick bumper on debut, but went with little promise when well held on hurdling bow there 27 days ago.
10-12David BassBen Paulinglocked40/140/10
36536520912 Mixedwave
Just poor form in a brace of course bumpers in the spring, but he's bred to do better over this longer trip now tackling obstacles.
10-12Paul O'BrienPam Slylocked40/166/165
36536526210 Has Troke
French bumper winner who showed a bit starting out over hurdles when fourth in a Stratford juvenile (18.7f) in March. Should improve now moving up in trip but needs to if he's to play a leading role.
10-12Harry BannisterAlex Haleslocked50/128/144
365365224 Farceur De Maulne
Fair in bumpers but ran below that level sent hurdling for new yard when well held at Exeter (16.7f) 22 days ago. Step up in trip should suit but looks one for later on.
10-12Alain CawleyRichard Hawkerlocked100/1150/150
There are 9 runners in this race.

Race 2 Market Rasen 13:52 Handicap Chase (Class 5) 19f

3653652310 Begoodtoyourself
Remains a maiden under Rules, but again found just one too good when chasing home an upwardly mobile type at Huntingdon (2½m) last month. Should give another good account.
10-10Harry ReedChristopher locked3/15/167
3653652653 Newberry New
Snapped a long losing run off a reduced mark at Catterick (19f) in February. Remains feasibly treated back from a break here and leading claims, for all that his record fresh is disconcerting.
11-12Harry BannisterHarriet Bethelllocked5/111/1120
3653652355 Avoir De Soins
Successful on first completed start over fences at Lingfield (2½m) last November. Subsequent efforts not so good, but makes debut for new yard on a workable mark and he's one for the shortlist.
11-9Kevin BroganJonjo O'Neilllocked6/112/1100
3653652738 Nocte Volatus
Improved when runner-up in a handicap hurdle off 4 lb higher at Chepstow last November. Subsequent efforts not so good, but he's worth a second look now switched to fences. Tongue strap applied.
11-6Stan SheppardTom Laceylocked7/19/129
36536594 No Quarter Asked
Off the mark at second attempt over fences at Ffos Las in July. Best effort since when third in a 6-runner Sedgefield handicap (17f) recently, but others make more appeal all the same.
11-9 James BowenPeter Bowenlocked8.5/111/129
3653654711 The Boat
Looks very limited judged on exploits in this sphere and over hurdles so far. Cheekpieces added.
10-6Adam WedgeEvan Williamslocked11/13.5/168
3653652112 Muroor
Solid second upon rejoining this yard at Hexham in October, but safely held in back-to-back Sedgefield handicap chases last month and he looks vulnerable once more.
10-5Thomas DowsonVictor Thompsonlocked12/125/1108
365365342 Caro Des Flos
Hurdles winner who left previous chase form a long way behind when striking at Worcester (2½m) in June. May have needed the run back from a break at Uttoxeter last month and merits respect.
11-12Tom BellamyJulian Smithlocked12/114/117
3653651989 Torrent Des Mottes
Back on the scoresheet when landing a 16.5f Huntingdon handicap in March (all 3 wins gained at that course) but ended last season on a low-key note.
10-11Nathan BrennanJohn Cornwalllocked16/166/1313
3653651421 Relkadam
Bagged deep-ground handicap chases at Catterick and Wetherby last winter, and solid third over this C&D off a 5 lb higher mark in May. Below par next 2 starts, though, and needs to bounce back.
12-4Jamie HamiltonTim Easterbylocked16/125/156
3653652527 Gumbo Flyer
Showed plenty of ability in a couple of bumpers, but little to shout about over hurdles last season and big step forward needed with blinkers enlisted for this chase debut.
11-8Gavin SheehanPaul Webberlocked20/111/145
3653651816 Dallas Cowboy
Two of his 3 victories over fences have been gained here, the latest in this race in 2019. However, majority of his subsequent efforts have been poor and the percentage call is to look elsewhere.
11-8Emma Smith-ChastonPaula Smithlocked25/133/132
36536511013 Catlow
Appeared to take a step forward when third of 11 in 2½m Wincanton handicap chase in March, but he hasn't come close to matching that level of form in 3 subsequent appearances.
10-0Page FullerJo Davislocked28/116/143
There are 13 runners in this race.
