Wednesday 6th December

3:45 pm at Dundalk

For sponsorship reasons, the 3:45 pm race at Dundalk Stadium is also known as the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden. With a cool AU$14,700 for the winning horse, there are a few that are worth looking out for ahead of the race. Mary Shoelaces might not have had a remarkable start to her racing career early on, but it has recently started to place. Betting on this Irish horse to place again on home soil doesn’t look like a bad idea at all.

Thursday 7th December

3:40 pm at Leicester

It’s a big field, with 18 horses taking part in the Novices’ Handicap Hurdle at 3:40 pm down at Leicester Racecourse. Out of the participants, there are few notable horses with a decent chance of winning the AU$6,860+ prize purse. Feach Amach won its last race back in mid-November as the Irish horse romped to victory under its new jockey partner, Locran Murtagh, who rode the horse for the first time. He’s trusted to continue winning races as he’s set to race here in the East Midlands. The other horse in serious contention is another Irish racer, Lelant. While this 5-year-old hasn’t won a race before, it has placed in multiple hurdle races, giving him a good likelihood of doing so here.

5:30 pm at Chelmsford City

Chelmsford City Racecourse in Essex, England, might not be as storied or as elegant as the classic horse racing destinations associated with the country, but it serves as a great breeding ground for less established horses to hone their craft. Two such horses looking to make a name for themselves at the opening race here are Kentucky Kingdom and Cavalluccio, both of which come into the race having won their last. Could either of them win this one and take home AU$7,500?

8:30 pm at Wolverhampton

Twelve runners are set to take to the track in this headline race at Wolverhampton Racecourse at 8:30 pm. The AU$11,400 prize purse makes it an enthralling race with no real out-and-out favourite taking part. Temur Khan is worth looking at having won its last race on a circuit in Brighton back in October 2023, could it pull out another win?

Friday 8th December

2:15 pm at Sedgefield

The 2:15 pm race at Sedgefield is also listed as Join The Vickers Club At Vickers.Bet Maiden Hurdle. There are two very interesting horses on display in this race, with New Order having placed in multiple races before, while Rowdy Romeo is also highly rated by the racing community. Could either of these two leave Sedgefield Racecourse as race winners?

Saturday 9th December

Betfair Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown Park

This Grade 1 steeplechase race is one of the highlights of the colder British racing season. Sandown Park Racecourse in the suburbs of London could be seen as the start of a new racing rivalry as two horses are tipped for success. The ultra-in-form Captain Guinness could easily be on the final furlong against Jonbon. A selection of either of these two to place would be a very sensible investment.

Sunday 10th December

Hanshin Juvenile Fillies in Hyogo, Japan

The Japanese horse racing season is in full swing, with another key event taking place here in Hyogo, in the west of the country. This event at the Hanshin Racecourse is open to two-year-old fillies exclusively and awards a staggering 65,000,000 yen to the winner, which is about $670,000 in Aussie dollars. Corazon Beat is a very handsomely bred horse, having won its last three races (having only raced four), and could easily notch up another win here.

LONGINES Hong Kong Mile in Sha Tin, Hong Kong

The LONGINES Hong Kong Mile is an exceptionally exciting, fast-paced race as part of this epic day of horse racing at Sha Tin Racecourse. Golden Sixty might be an older horse now, but it is continuing to win races. The horse famously won the Hong Kong Mile in both 2020 and 2021. Despite not winning last year’s race, the horse has won major trophies in 2023, including the Stewards’ Cup, the Hong Kong Gold Cup, and the Champions Mile – making Golden Sixty one of the form horses going into this race.

LONGINES Hong Kong Cup in Sha Tin, Hong Kong

The LONGINES Hong Kong International races are closed out by this fabulous main event and feature race, the Grade 1 flat horse race for thoroughbreds. Frankie Dettori is the most successful jockey here and might even participate in this edition, having postponed his retirement to keep racing. Could the Italian win a fourth title in this race? He will have to compete with last year’s race winner, Romantic Warrior, who set the first sub-2 minutes win in over 20 years! Could another horse rack up another lightning-quick winning time?
