Horse Racing betting tips: 7/1 Finest View can triumph at Taunton

There is some competitive racing in Britain on Tuesday and Racing Post tipster Graeme Rodway has gone through the cards.

He gives his three best bets over Jumps and on the Flat.

3.00 Taunton

Premiumaccess @ 15/2

1pt win

3.30 Taunton

Finest View @ 7/1

1pt win

6.00 Southwell

Ladypacksapunch @ 50/1

1pt win

Premiumaccess can bounce back to form

Stormy Flight is a warm order for the Weatherbys Handicap Chase (3.00) at Taunton, but he is short enough at the prices on offer and the better bet might be Premiumaccess.

Joe Tizzard’s string is coming back to form and Premiumaccess has a good chance here judging on his close second at Fontwell in November. He was beaten by only three-and-a-quarter lengths that day on similar ground to this and the front two pulled 13 lengths clear of the rest.

Premiumaccess has shown nothing in two outings since, but he unseated his rider at the eighth at Wincanton two outings ago and can be forgiven a disappointing run at Exeter last time out.

That came on testing ground and, while he has handled that going in the past, he has yet to encounter such a surface at a stiff track like Exeter and it took its toll in the closing stages.

The return to better conditions on a sharper track should suit Premiumaccess and he is back down to the same mark as for that excellent second at Fontwell at the start of the winter.

Finest View looks an attractive bet

The Weatherbys Cheltenham Festival Betting Guide Handicap Hurdle (3.30) at Taunton is another competitive contest despite only seven going to post and Finest View makes most appeal.

The promising six-year-old won four of her last five starts for Alan King and can be forgiven a poor run last time at Doncaster. That came in red-hot company against former Champion Hurdle winner Epatante and Finest View had no chance. She was totally out of her depth.

Her rider James Martin was also unable to claim his 7lb allowance that day, but he is taking it off this time and Finest View should be much more effective now she tackles a weaker race.

She is entitled to improve significantly for that first run back too. It was the first time she has been seen since last June and there is every chance she can strip fitter with it under her belt.

A bold bid is surely on the cards from Finest View and she can bounce back to her best.

Ladypacksapunch can land a knockout blow

The mile handicap (6.00) at Southwell is a wide-open race and it’s difficult to discount anything. The two who catch my eye at the prices are Barneys Gift and Ladypacksapunch, and preference is for Ladypacksapunch at what is likely to be a huge price.

The Grace Harris-trained four-year-old is still lightly raced and she showed enough ability to be competitive in a race like this when a close fourth in a 1m1/2f handicap at Wolverhampton in November. She kept on nicely that day to record an RPR of 63 and runs off just 56 in this.

She hung badly left at the clockwise Kempton when disappointing last time, but the return to a left-handed venue here will definitely be in her favour and the cheekpieces go on for the first time. That might just help her concentrate if she begins to wander in the latter stages.

Ladypacksapunch should be fresh and well after an 83-day break and can spring a surprise.
