Friday’s Horse Racing NAP of The Day – November 29th 2019
Tips from The Finishing Lines Andrew Halligan.
Friday marks the start of the Ladbrokes Trophy meeting at Newbury, and what a cracking card we have to look forward to. This is the meeting that over the years there have been history-making performances non like the performances that “The Tank” Denman put up when winning what was then called the Hennessey. So, it’s no surprise that my two Friday betting tips come from Newbury.
Newbury 1.20 Faustinovick @ 5/2
This is a horse I have liked his 2nd to McFabulous in a bumper at this track back in March. He was 2nd to the highly promising Andy Dufresne in his point to point and I think he will take some stopping today.
FAUSTINOVICK was turned over at 4/5 on hurdles debut but ran like a horse that will improve tons for the run. He travelled well the whole way around and looked like he was coming with a winning run two out only to make a bad mistake. Briefly dropped to 4th but got himself organised and go back up for 2nd.
If he ends up being half as good as his owners’ other horse and Gold Cup favourite Lostintranslation, then they are in for a few days with FAUSTINOVICK.
FASUTINOVICK is best priced 5/2 with Paddy Power.

Newbury 1.50 Kalashnikov @ 7/2
Get the price while you can… KALASHNIKOV looks to have a cracking chance of opening his account for this season. A top 2-mile novice chaser last season and he was beaten by reposing rival Glen Forsa at Sandown back in February, but he will avenge that defeat today over the trip that saw him claim his Grade 1 where he beat super mare La Bague Au Roi.
KALASHINKOV started off this season with a 2nd in the Old Roan Chase at Aintree where it was more of a flat race than chase as ¾ of the fences were omitted due to low sun. Running off the same mark today this classy individual can stamp his class on this race and enter the race for a crack at the Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.
