Newsboy’s horse racing tips for New Year’s Day
ACCOMPLICE is fancied to kick-start Paul Nicholls’ march towards a second seasonal century by beating eight rivals for the Betway Handicap Hurdle (1.20) at Musselburgh.
Nicholls reached three figures for the campaign when Shearer scored at Warwick yesterday, and Bryony Frost’s mount Accomplice is ready to hit the back of the net after a two-length second to River Bray at Wincanton at the start of last month.
Ditcheat raider MIRANDA can complete a double for Manor Farm in the Betway Hogmaneigh Handicap Hurdle (1.55) after hitting the bullseye for prolific amateur Angus Cheleda at Ludlow last time out.
The Betway “Auld Reekie” Handicap Chase (3.05) looks open, but you could set your clocks by RETURN TICKET, who is expected to go all the way.
Dual Cheltenham Gold Cup hero AL BOUM PHOTO makes his comeback in the Savills New Year’s Day Chase (2.37) at Tramore – and it will rank as the first shock of 2021 if Willie Mullins’ star does not win the Grade 3 test for the third time.
