Monday racing tips for Punchestown, Fontwell, Hereford and Wolverhampton

Hugo Palmer’s protégé landed a competitive affair while coached by Tom Dascombe.

The five-year-old has drawn a gap in seven straight games but he suffered a fair defeat when he was beaten by just under two lengths by Trueshan at the Northumberland Plate despite being handed a lot of weight.

He had some valid excuses for other disappointments, racing far too eagerly on a couple of occasions while also managing to find running problems on one occasion.

Solent Gateway returned from a 163-day hiatus at Southwell just over a week ago and finished a well-beaten fifth place behind Berkshire Rocco in a condition race where he went against him in the weights.

However, that outing, which was also his first since wind ops, should have gotten him further and back at handicap firm Solent Gateway he can get back on track.

Beat on Mac is winless in nine starts so far but could get lucky on the 10th time in BetUK’s Acca Club £5 Free Bet Handicap.

While he is yet to put himself in the lead, George Boughey’s protégé has now hit the bar many times and finished second six times while also taking a third place.

Coolvalla can complete his foursome in the Vickers.Bet Independent Family Owned Bookmaker Handicap Chase at Fontwell.

The seven-year-old is three of three over fences, with two wins already under his belt over the same three-and-a-half miles he faces here.

His latest success came on Boxing Day when he chopped up 19 lengths while seeing good value for margin.

The handicapper hiked him 11 pounds for that verdict, but Coolvalla appears to have plenty up his sleeve.
