Will our shouts make it a profitable day?

Fakenham is one of three jumps meetings in Britain on Tuesday afternoon, with Ayr and Southwell also hosting National Hunt action

Take a read.

Treacys Jim | 2:45pm Stay At Fakenham Racecourse Caravan Camping Site Handicap Chase | Reece‘s Pick

Jimmy Frost’s charge showed his liking for both this trip and ground at Newton Abbot on his most recent start last month after a series of fairly underwhelming efforts.

A switch to fences appears to have worked the oracle for the former pointer and he’s off a lowly mark of 79, with the booking of Jamie Moore an eyecatcher.

Jamie Moore takes the seat aboard Treacys Jim at Fakenham this afternoon

He’s still only 7-years-old and leaves the impression that he’s been saved for a test like this, and has been well supported in the market as a result.

Tossapenny | 3:20pm Snellings Maiden Hurdle | Dom‘s Pick

The son of Presenting made a pleasing return to action after a lengthy spell away from the track at Hereford in February, finishing third and still remaining without victory under rules to date.

Evan Williams and Adam Wedge won the Welsh Grand National earlier this year for Mr and Mrs Rucker, who own Fakenham contender Tossapenny

He’s been highly unfortunate to not shed his maiden status, being beaten by a short-head on two occasions and a nose on another.

Adam Wedge’s mount has without doubt the best form in the book heading here and in a weak enough looking contest, he should be very tough to beat.

The right side of evens (correct at the time of writing) could prove very good value.

Mr Yeats | 3:55pm Snellings Novices’ Handicap Hurdle | Reece’s Pick

Milton Harris’s four-year-old has been given plenty of runs since the turn of the year but clearly improved for the switch to handicap company at Taunton last time out.

He’s now upped in trip and on a 3lbs lower mark, could be the answer in a race where plenty have question marks over them.

Fakenham selection Mr Yeats is by four-time Ascot Gold Cup winner, Yeats

With a repeat of his Somerset effort and Mitchell Bastyan taking a handy 3lbs off his back, the son of Yeats is sure to go close here.

Robin Of Sherwood | 4:25pm Snellings Norfolk National Handicap Chase | Dom’s Pick

It could pay to side with the in-form David Rees runner, who is now on a career-high mark following victory at Warwick on his last start.

He’s not got too many miles on the clock given his age and appears to have excelled now running over marathon trips which he will face again here.

Sean Bowen bids for back-to-back wins on Robin Of Sherwood at Fakenham on Tuesday

Sean Bowen gets a good tune out of him and retains the partnership in East Anglia this afternoon, and could run another big race with a very light weight on his back.

  • Treacys Jim: 2:45pm
  • Tossapenny: 3:20pm
