Saturday, 14 January 2023

In addition to Knowsley Road, there are several other horses running in the Ballymore Leamington Novices' Hurdle that have won their previous race. That includes Ginny’s Destiny who runs for Tom Lacey, while Dan Skelton has seen his charge Grey Dawning triumph on his previous two races.

The same applies to Twinjets, Givega, Landrake and Moon Hunter, with this being the ideal race to either select a couple of runners as a win-only bet or alternatively consider an each-way wager. We’re excited to see what happens in a race where there could be any number of winners.

2023 Ballymore Leamington Novices' Hurdle Tips

Paul Nicholls has jockey Lorcan Williams booked to ride Knowsley Road and there’s a confidence that the horse can run a big race. The six-year-old currently boasts a record of three consecutive victories and they all came at Chepstow, with the horse recently obliging as the 4/5 favourite when winning a Novices’ Hurdle which saw him as the comfortable winner.

Ginny’s Destiny is trading at a similar price in the betting and the seven-year-old was a facile winner at Warwick Racecourse in the middle of November. Sent off as an 18/1 outsider, there was so much to like about a performance that saw the winner claim a victory by over eight lengths, with Mexico and Lookaway unable to get close.

Grey Dawning comes into the race off back-to-back wins and the six-year-old certainly has claims to run a decent race. On Boxing Day, the horse was a winner at Kempton Racecourse, with the horse winning over two miles and five furlongs. The horse previously won a Novices’ Hurdle at Exeter and could be on the shortlist.

Twinjets comes from the smaller stable of Milton Harris and the six-year-old picked up successive wins at Leicester and Plumpton. There are other notable horses in the race and that includes Givega, with victories coming at Fontwell and Lingfield. Landrake comes over from Ireland and scooped wins at Clonmel and Fairyhouse.
