Ordinary World bets and Bacardys odds among Naas tips for November 11
Cheltenham Bet’s Naas tips for November 11 include Ordinary World bets and Bacardys odds over in Ireland this Saturday.
Ordinary World ran a string of solid races in defeat at the highest level last term, so is well worth backing for a winning return to action in the 2m Grade 3 Poplar Square Chase at Naas (12:35).
Henry de Bromhead’s charge was last seen when an 11-length best of the rest to Great Field in the Grade 1 Ryanair Novice Chase at the Punchestown Festival.
Prior to that, the seven-year-old was a 15-length third to the awesome Altior in the Cheltenham Festival’s Arkle Challenge Trophy.
The Arkle runner-up, Cloudy Dream, has since landed a Grade 2 contest at Ayr either side of two gallant efforts to finish second at Aintree.
Form sets a clear standard
Ordinary World also kept on gamely and held off subsequent Brown Advisory Plate and Fairyhouse Grade 1 winner Road To Respect when a nine-length runner-up to Min at Leopardstown’s Christmas Festival.
The selection’s form sets a clear standard in this contest, which is his easiest assignment for some time.
It’s best to catch him first time up, as Ordinary World has landed his seasonal reappearance in each of the last two campaigns.
He gets 9lb from top weight and fellow market principal Ball D’arc, despite being officially rated just 6lb inferior.
Ordinary World bets thus appeal as that makes him 3lb well-in against that rival and he has 5lb and upwards on ratings against the rest of the field.
Duca De Thaix a fascinating debutant for Elliott in Fishery Lane
The other Grade 3 on the card is the 2m Fishery Lane Hurdle (13:10), in which Duca De Thaix makes his debut for Gordon Elliott and Gigginstown House Stud.
Connections purchased the four-year-old after he landed a 2m 2f hurdle at Auteuil last October, beating filly Dame De Compagnie by a neck.
The runner-up was bought by leading Irish owner JP McManus, then sent to Nicky Henderson and made a winning bow for the British champion trainer at Uttoxeter earlier this month.
Duca De Thaix is unexposed compared to race rivals such as market principals Ex Patriot and Meri Devie, who carries bottom weight.
There is definite each-way value in the early show 14/1 with Paddy Power for a horse from a stable in fine form at present.
Bacardys odds appeal on fences bow
Later on, Willie Mullins’ dual Grade 1 hurdles winner Bacardys makes his chase debut over 2m 3f (15:30) and is fancied for the spoils.
This six-year-old showed real guts last time out to reel in Finian’s Oscar and nab victory by a head in the Tattersalls Ireland Champion Novice Hurdle at the Punchestown Festival.
Colin Tizzard’s Alan Potts-owned charge came out and won his own bow over fences at Chepstow on seasonal reappearance, so connections are looking to follow suit with Bacardys.
Although previously pulled-up in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, a line can be drawn through that as he got badly hampered early on and never recovered.
Bacardys odds are taken off level weights with the likes of De Plotting Shed, Scoir Mear and Snow Falcon.
