Horse racing tips: Time for Tik Tok to strike at Hereford

Racing Post tipster Robbie Wilders provides his three best bets across the cards in Britain on Wednesday.

Robbie Wilders’ tips

2.00 Hereford - Ma Belle Artiste @ 10/1
3.20 Fontwell - He’s A Latchico @ 9/4
5.07 Hereford - Tik Tok @ 9/1

Horse Racing

2.00 Hereford - Ma Belle Artiste @ 10/1

Those with hurdling experience in the 2m juvenile fillies’ maiden hurdle at Hereford set a moderate enough standard and it might be worth chancing MA BELLE ARTISTE on her first start for the Robert Bevis yard.

Ma Belle Artiste was a smart mare on the Flat for Joseph O’Brien. She was campaigned at Listed level as a two-year-old and ran in the Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot only three starts back.

It is impossible to know how she’ll take to hurdling, but she has the best pedigree in the field and might be underestimated in the betting with her trainer not among the winners for almost a year (18 straight losers).

Bevis is 1-4 at Hereford in the last five years and showing a level-stakes profit of +£24.38 overall in that timeframe, though, and the booking of top jockey Jonathan Burke for the ride is interesting.  

Robbie Wilders’ tip:

Ma Belle Artiste @ 10/1 - 1pt win

3.20 Fontwell - He’s A Latchico @ 9/4

There are plenty of hurdles formlines from which to judge HE’S A LATCHICO and he can get back in the winner’s enclosure in the 2m1½f handicap hurdle at Fontwell.

The Gary Moore-trained five-year-old is rated 86 on the Flat and is improving all the time over hurdles.

While he has gone up 4lb to 108 in this sphere after following home Inthewaterside at Lingfield last time, the winner was chucked in on his bumper form and that was a better race than this.

I’m not convinced He’s A Latchico wants two and a half miles over jumps when the ground is testing and dropping back a couple of furlongs in distance with the ground set to be slow at Fontwell looks a prudent play. The yard’s horses are running well and the selection is unbeaten at this track.

He’s A Latchico @ 9/4 - 1pt win

5.07 Hereford - Tik Tok @ 9/1

It has been a relatively quiet season for Christian Williams but the trainer was back among the winners at Huntingdon last week and sends four runners to Hereford. The pick of that team could be TIK TOK, who goes in the second division of the 2m3½f handicap hurdle.

It is worth noting that Tik Tok was sent off the well-supported 13-8 favourite for his debut in a Sedgefield bumper for Williams in March 2022, and while he couldn’t justify the market confidence, a third-placed finish amid greenness when he was the last off the bridle was a perfectly reasonable introduction. 

A Racing Post Rating of 99 there leaves him potentially well treated off an opening hurdles mark of 88 after he didn’t show much spark in three novice hurdle starts over two miles.

This kind of test will be more his bag and it is interesting that Williams’ old ally Jack Tudor is in the saddle despite the fact his boss David Pipe has runners at Fontwell.

Tik Tok is a half-brother to Grade 1 scorer Laurina, while he is a brother to a three-time Irish-trained winner who is currently rated 113. He has scope to climb through the ranks on his return from a year off.  

Robbie Wilders’ tip:

Tik Tok @ 9/1 - 1pt win
