Free betting tips: Sporting Life's daily horse racing nap of the day

Matt Brocklebank puts faith in a lightly-raced mare for David Pipe at Exeter on Thursday.


Sporting Life Daily Nap, December 20

It could be pretty testing going at Exeter on Thursday and conditions should be fine for STREAM LADY in the starsports.bet Mares' Novices' Hurdle.

Trained by David Pipe - whose horses appear to be stepping up a gear in general at this stage of the season - she was an impressive winner of a point-to-point earlier this year in May and the form of that particular race has worked out pretty well.

She'd clearly been showing the right signs to Pipe ahead of her Ruled debut in a Wetherby bumper last month having been sent off 5/1 and while she was ultimately well beaten in fifth, there was definitely signs of ability.

She was a little bit keen but shaped well for a long way that day and looks a horse to keep on side now switched straight over obstacles.

The extended 2m2f trip may be on the sharp side in the fullness of time but the going should place enough emphasis on stamina and Stream Lady probably wouldn't been to be anything special to be making a winning start over obstacles in this company.
