Tuesday 11 June horse racing tips - Sayers' 5/4 chance can Hammer rivals at Carlisle

Brian Healy 11 Jun 2019
Carlisle are racing on Tuesday.

Brian Healy gives his race-by-race selections and best bets for Tuesday's UK and Irish horse racing fixtures.

Five more UK and Irish horse racing meetings go to post on Tuesday, and there is afternoon flat racing action from Salisbury and Lingfield who are racing on their turf track.

Meanwhile, the evening action comes courtesy of Carlisle and Thirsk on the flat, and from Roscommon in Ireland over the sticks.

Salisbury (flat) - 1.45 - 5.15pm (8 races)
Lingfield (flat) - 2.00 - 5.00pm (7 races)
Thirsk (flat) - 5.20 - 8.50pm (8 races)
Carlisle (flat) - 5.30 - 9.00pm (8 races)
Roscommon (jumps) - 5.40 - 8.40pm (7 races)



(2.45) Having looked green early, REYNOLDS (9/4, William Hill) caught the eye doing good late work to eventually finish third on his debut at Newbury last month, and Eve Johnson Houghton’s charge can improve for the experience to get off the mark at the second attempt.

The Exceed and Excel colt crossed the line just a half-length adrift of the winner, Biometric, and he should know more this time around in the wake of that run behind a now 92-rated rival who has run well in defeat since.

Open to improvement on the back of that debut effort, he can post a big effort here, and no surprise if he were to open his account now.

(3.15) SO CLAIRE (8/1, Paddy Power) showed improved form switching to turf at Lingfield on her reappearance last month, and William Muir’s charge could get off the mark now with the potential to improve further now she goes handicapping.

The Kyllachy filly was beaten almost four lengths into third behind Mutaraffa, run down late for the silver medal. That was a decent outing and she is open to progress.

An opening mark of 59 ahead of her handicap debut doesn’t appear harsh, and unexposed compared to most of her rivals she can finish thereabouts with the potential for more to come.

1.45 - Gold Venture
2.15 - Top Buck
2.45 - Reynolds
3.15 - So Claire
3.45 - Bella Vita
4.15 - Make Me Day
4.45 - Master Grey
5.15 - Handytalk


(3.00) LOVE LOVE (7/4, Bet365) has shown ability on both starts to date, building on a promising debut fifth at Salisbury to bag a bronze medal on her next outing at Windsor where the Kodiac filly finished just over three lengths’ third behind Theory Of Time.

Richard Hannon’s charge finished ahead of Rosadora who reopposes, but she still looked green under pressure last time and so could find a further jolt of improvement on the back of that latest run. If she does then she can get off the mark at the third attempt here under Sylvestre De Sousa.

(4.00) DASHING POET (2/1, William Hill) scored her last win at Southwell back in December, and the Poet’s Voice gelding could get back on the scoresheet here having proven a consistent operator since.

Heather Main’s charge has finished fourth or better in each of her last seven starts which include back-to-back runner-up efforts the last twice. 

Most recently beaten just under two lengths behind Sir Roderic at Chepstow, she had a subsequent winner in arrears and a return to a longer trip could see her get back to winning ways from the same mark given her consistency,

2.00 - Billie Beane
2.30 - Upavon
3.00 - Love Love
3.30 - Al Battar
4.00 - Dashing Poet
4.30 - Agent Basterfield
5.00 - So Near So Farhh


(5.50) CLAY REGAZZONI (11/10, Bet365) ran well despite inexperience on his Ayr debut last month, eventually finishing runner-up behind Due Diligence; Keith Dalgleish’s charge can step up on that initial outing to go one place better here.

Beaten just under two lengths behind Lord Of The Lodge, the pair had pulled eight lengths clear of the remainder, and she sets the standard on that form.

With the potential for further improvement to come, it shouldn’t be long before she gets off the mark judged on that initial effort, and it could come here at the second attempt.

(7.20) SCUZEME (10/1, Bet365) has found a new lease of life since joining former rider Philip Makin, making the frame in all four starts for his new handler which includes a last time course and distance success over Holdenhurst.

The Kheleyf gelding ran out a near-three lengths’ winner on that occasion, making all the running and scoring a shade readily. He has been pushed up 7lbs in the weights for that outing, but he could have more to come for this yard and it would be no surprise to see him go close again, especially if the rain keeps away.

5.20 - Castlehill Retreat
5.50 - Clay Regazzoni
6.20 - Mutarakez
6.50 - Maroon Bells
7.20 - Scuzeme
7.50 - Ambersand
8.20 - Lilypad
8.50 - Dancing Rave


(6.00) REGAL LILY (11/10, Paddy Power) shaped well amidst inexperience at Haydock when finishing fourth on debut last month; Mark Johnston’s charge can build on that outing to get off the mark here at the second attempt.

The Iffraaj filly was beaten around five lengths, but she ought to be better for the run where she looked green early before running on; both the winner and third from that race have won since to give the form a boost, and she gets in here at the bottom of the weights.

Her light weight could prove a big bonus in these conditions, and if she handles the testing ground then it isn’t hard to see her stepping up on that debut to open her account now.

(7.00) JACKHAMMER (5/4, William Hill) has won two of his last three starts, with the latest coming in similar conditions at this course and distance eleven days ago when Dianne Sayer’s charge ran out a ready winner over Highwayman.

The Thewayyouare gelding suggested that his current run of form was far from over with that easy success, and while raised 7lbs in the wake of that success will demand a shade more from him if he is to follow up, it is worth noting that he has competed with credit from higher marks in the past so he remains with scope to do better still.

This contest looks no stronger than the one he took last time, and he can follow up despite his rise in the handicap if this doesn’t come too soon.

5.30 - Good Night Mr Tom
6.00 - Regal Lily
6.30 - Cliff Bay
7.00 - Jackhammer
7.30 - Archaeology
8.00 - Three Castles
8.30 - Outside Inside
9.00 - Le Musee


(6.40) A winner on the flat for Aidan O’Brien, GALILEAN (9/4, William Hill) has taken well to hurdling for Joseph O’Brien, finishing fifth on his hurdles debut and return from more than two years off the track at Fairyhouse in January.

The Galileo gelding stepped up on that run to find only Allez Dance too strong at Punchestown; but he got off the mark at Fairyhouse when back from another short break to score by nine lengths over Mr Everest.

Stepped up in trip for his last outing, he was beaten only one length behind Judgement Day at Kilbeggan for his second silver medal in three starts; but a repeat ought to be good enough to see him get back on the scoresheet here equipped with first-time blinkers; while a good value 7lbs claimer takes the reins to ease his weight burden.

He looks sure to go close here, and no surprise if he were to get back to winning ways.

(8.10) REWRITETHERULES (6/1, Paddy Power) has been in excellent heart for John Joseph Hanlon since switching from the point-to-point sphere to chasing, and the Jeremy gelding arrives here chasing a hat-trick following successes at Down Royal and Tipperary last month.

The latter occasion saw the five-year old run out an eleven lengths’ winner over Bright Rhett, scoring readily, and he makes his handicap debut here from the foot of the weights having been handed what could prove to be a lenient opening mark.

This is tougher than either of the races he has won to date, but he looks a promising sort who could easily have more to offer, and he is taken in a competitive contest to find further improvement and land the three-timer.

5.40 - Rocky Shores
6.10 - Nancy D’alton
6.40 - Galilean
7.10 - Hero’s Welcome
7.40 - Farclas
8.10 - Rewritetherules
8.40 - Centaur
