BEST BETS ON TUESDAY – TIPS FOR REDCAR, YARMOUTH, HEXHAM & KEMPTON
1:00 Yarmouth – British EBF Premier Fillies’ Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-80) 1m3½f
PROGRESSIVE could well live up to her name and find another jolt of improvement now switching to the handicap ranks where the Nathaniel filly can follow up her recent win.
Roger Varian has his string in decent fettle and having looked in need of the experience when finishing sixth on her debut she stepped up markedly for the outing when narrowly justifying favouritism at Newcastle last month.
She battled back well having been headed and gave the impression that there was more to come so she may well progress again with this extra distance a potential source of improvement as she makes her handicap debut from a workable mark.
1:45 Redcar – Market Cross Jewellers Nursery Handicap Cl5 (2yo 0-70) 7f
BABE ALICIOUS might not have been suited by the softer ground at Hamilton two weeks ago but back on a quicker surface it may be worth chancing on Richard Fahey’s charge to bounce back with a better effort.
The Kodiac filly had shaped with some promise on her debut at Catterick in August, finishing five lengths’ fifth behind Cream Of The Crop having missed the break but finishing off the race well; she then struggled to get competitive latest where she weakened out of contention although the ground is a plausible excuse for that outing.
She can do better here where she steps up in trip on better ground and she is worth another chance to build on the promise shown on her debut.
3:10 Hexham – Racing Partnership Novices’ Hurdle (GBB Race) Cl4 (4yo+) 2m
It might be worth chancing RHOSNEIGR despite the Iffraaj gelding looking a tricky customer; but Kim Bailey’s charge was a good winner at Huntingdon back in March and could have more to offer still as a hurdler.
He had placed twice from his previous three starts before that success but following a spin on the all-weather at Chelmsford following lockdown he was disappointing at Southtwell in July back over timber. But having had wind surgery in the wake of that effort she shaped better when last seen at Market Rasen last month when third to Balagan although possibly found her stamina stretched over the longer trip.
Back in trip for this outing he can post another solid effort and no surprise to see him going close in this contest.
4:10 Hexham – Follow @Hexham Race On Twitter Handicap Hurdle Cl4 (3yo+ 0-120) 2m
Nicky Henderson has a good record with his limited runners at Hexham and CHANTECLER could prove tough to beat for the Seven Barrows trainer and make the trip to Northumberland worthwhile.
The Authorized gelding isn’t one of the yard’s leading lights but he has shown some fair ability for previous handler Neil Mulholland which included a win at Newton Abbot back in August 2018.
Following a short and unsuccessful stint on the all-weather for Roger Teal he has run well on both starts for Henderson, building on a yard debut third at Bangor to strike readily at Stratford and he could improve further despite a 9lbs rise in the weights.
The yard is 4-7 with its’ runners here and that record could yet be enhanced further.
6:40 Kempton – Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-75) 1m4f
Despite only finishing sixth CHAIRMAN POWER caught the eye with a much better performance on his return from eleven months and wind surgery at Lingfield earlier in the month and the Galileo colt can build on that performance to get off the mark on his handicap debut.
Sir Michael Stoute’s charge was also trying this longer trip for the first time and he was considerately handled in finishing in midfield in that race, beaten around nine lengths behind the reopposing Myseven who was getting 5lbs from the selection.
He should come on for that run and is likely to be sharper this time around while an opening mark of 66 could underestimate his potential for improvement given his top yard which boasts a fair record with its’ runners here. A significant swing at the weights with his last time conqueror could see him turn the tables now and every chance he can step forward switching to handicaps to get off the mark.
