Horse Racing betting tips: Fortune favouring Williams at Uttoxeter

2.25 Uttoxeter - Lord Snootie @ 4/1

Christian Williams has returned to form in recent times and could be in for a big day at Uttoxeter.

This is the time of year his stable typically flourishes, and following a 13/2 winner and 11/2 second with his past three runners, LORD SNOOTIE is taken to maintain the yard's resurgence in the bet365 Handicap Hurdle over three miles.

There is some doubt whether this was Lord Snootie's major aim as he qualified for the Cheltenham Festival Pertemps Final at Haydock last month, staying on powerfully on the run-in to get within half a length of Cuthbert Dibble.

In fairness, Lord Snootie was too low in the handicap to get into the Final, but this is an excellent pot in its own right and he is a massive player off 3lb higher with Cuthbert Dibble running so well in the Final on Thursday. Conditions are in his favour and there is lots to like.

Robbie Wilders' tip:

Lord Snootie @ 4/1 - 1pt win

3.00 Uttoxeter - Farceur Du Large @ 8/1

Jamie Snowden knows the time of day in big handicaps, and another might fall his way with FARCEUR DU LARGE taken to do the business in the bet365 Midlands Grand National.

Farceur Du Large was a useful stayer for Noel Meade a couple of seasons ago before losing his way, and has been revitalised for a switch to Snowden's stable.

He is two from two for Snowden, having landed military events at Sandown on soft ground in excellent style, giving the impression he can stay an extra few furlongs when asked.

Amateur rider contests should never be taken completely at face value, but he was conceding 17lb to smart mare Rose Of Arcadia two starts back and defeated her fair and square, and she is now rated 130 after winning since.

Farceur Du Large is back in a handicap of 136 with an excellent rider aboard in Gavin Sheehan, and this sound jumper should give it a bold bid.

Robbie Wilders' tip:

Farceur Du Large @ 8/1 - 1pt each-way

3.35 Uttoxeter – Fortunefavorsdbold @ 5/1

Christian Williams can earn his double at Uttoxeter with FORTUNEFAVORSDBOLD in the bet365 Novice Handicap Chase. This mare first served notice of the yard coming to hand with an unexpected 16/1 strike at Huntingdon in February.

She built on that by readily accounting for a gambled-on market leader at Lingfield in testing conditions 11 days ago.

Another 5lb rise still leaves this six-year-old below her peak hurdles mark and she remains a chaser to keep on the right side of when encountering testing conditions, with two successes from three in that discipline. There is every chance she can rate much higher in the future.

Fortunefavorsdbold @ 5/1 - 1pt win
