Picks From The Paddock Best Bet – Sunday 25th November

Night Of Sin and Lizzie Kelly win the Stella Artois Juvenile Hurdle at Bangor-on-Dee.


14:50 Exeter

Night Of Sin didn’t have much to beat when winning a three-runner affair by over forty lengths at Taunton last time out as his main rival unseated his jockey at the sixth. That said, Nick Williams’ grey put in a lovely round of jumping and at the same time showed he copes with fast ground, readily coming clear to win with ease. Furthermore, Lizzie Kelly has a 43% winning strike rate in the last 12 months at the course and has been in the saddle for all three career wins so with further progression likely I am hopeful of another victory here today.

Admiral’s Secret hasn’t been since April but arrives here chasing a hat-trick and would have to be considered if fully fit on return, while New Millennium finally got his nose in front over fences at the fourth time of asking but has been steadily improving so could still be competitive off a 6lbs higher mark.

Night Of Sin (WIN) – NAP



15:00 Navan

De Name Escapes Me returned from a seven-month summer break with an impressive victory at Naas earlier this month, travelling strongly before asserting between the final two hurdles and quickly pulling four lengths clear of the eventual runner-up. He won’t have any issues with the extra distance he encounters today, he has built up an excellent partnership with jockey Mark Walsh (teaming up to win three from five) and the forecast rain will only help his cause so he is taken to defy an 8lbs rise and bag another victory here today.

Salty Boy makes his handicap debut following victory last time out and has been progressing well, while Pass The Ball has won three of his last four over hurdles and should give another good account despite a career-high mark. If the rain stays away then both would have to be considered in with each-way chances.
