Horse Racing betting tips: Bank on Bhaloo on Sunday

There are four meetings on Sunday and Racing Post tipster Andrew Cooper has a trio of selections from the Jumps action in Britain.

Andrew Cooper's tips

1.35 Carlisle - Mulberry Hill @ 4/1
1.55 Southwell - Bhaloo @ 1/2
2.10 Carlisle - Howlingmadmurdock @ 5/2

1.35 Carlisle - Mulberry Hill @ 4/1

The feature chase at Carlisle (1.35) could go to MULBERRY HILL, who makes the long journey north from Fergal O'Brien's Gloucestershire base. 

It's taken her a while to get the hang of things and falling when challenging at the second last on her first crack at the bigger obstacles under rules could have knocked her confidence, but producing peak Racing Post Ratings the last twice suggests not. 

She shaped very well over a smidgen shorter here in October, having won over hurdles at the track under Jack Hogan in 2022, and jumped and travelled particularly well when doing the job nicely on a sound surface at Kempton last time. 

A Listed mares contest was earmarked for her after that but this 0-140 has effectively become a 0-130 and, off 124, it looks a good next step. 

The suspicion remains that Venetia Williams' Christopher Wood can win one over fences but he's seemingly fragile having undergone wind surgery several times. 

Three of his wins have come off breaks of 80 days or more (and he won on debut) so a market check is advised on his first start since having a spin on the Flat at Chester's May meeting.

Andrew Cooper's tip:

Mulberry Hill @ 4/1 - 1pt win

1.55 Southwell - Bhaloo @ 1/2

The standout bet on Southwell's card appears to be BHALOO in the maiden hurdle at 1.55. 

Nicky Henderson has two big chances on the card and Nico de Boinville heads to the Nottinghamshire track just to ride my selection. 

He caught the eye on his sole start in a bumper last year and his former trainer's patience was rewarded when he did it nicely in a similar race next time. 

Another lay-off followed before he started out for Henderson over hurdles last month. 

His two market rivals had not only run over hurdles but had won, and he very much shaped like a sure-fire next-time-out winner when staying on well in third. He could be one to watch when upped in trip later in the season.

Andrew Cooper's tip:

Bhaloo @ 1/2 - 3pts win

2.10 Carlisle - Howlingmadmurdock @ 5/2

The eye is drawn to Joseph O'Brien's Prairie Dancer in the Pertemps Qualifier at Carlisle (2.10) and away from Cheltenham and Aintree, where the races are generally more hotly contested, the trainer's record in GB Jumps races is 5-15.

His runner here never looked happy when last seen over hurdles in August, but did notch a win on the Flat a couple of months later.

The one to be on could be Tom Lacey's HOWLINGMADMURDOCK. Anthony Honeyball does well in bumpers and got him to win one first time out before moving him on for what looks a bargain £26,000.

He went from strength to strength over hurdles last season, winning at Plumpton and Sandown before he was thought good enough to contest a Grade 1 at Aintree.

Far from disgraced in fifth, it was a pleasing way to sign off his campaign. His comeback run was only okay but that should have blown away the cobwebs and he's highly likely to be a different proposition here with Cameron Iles taking off a useful 7lb.

Andrew Cooper's tip:

Howlingmadmurdock @ 5/2 - 2pts win
