Horse Racing tips
It’s now the calm after the storm as the wet weather has played havoc with the meetings and number of runners over the last few days. There is plenty of action with four top meetings on the Flat and over jumps in Britain on Thursday
So check out Thursday’s horse racing tips and don’t forget to click the links to take advantage of the best price on offer.
ASDAA (2.30 Beverley, 7f handicap)
Has run far better than the form figures suggest in hotter races than this at Goodwood and Chester in his last two starts,
Has fluffed the start on both occasions before travelling well and getting caught in trouble late on.
Is now 1lb lower than his last winning mark, so he’s well handicapped, and this is the wakest race he’s contested for quite some time.
CANTON PRINCE (2.50 Sedgefield, 2m5f handicap chase)
Made a bad mistake at the first and lost many lengths after being badly hampered by a faller at the second on his comeback run at Southwell last month.
Finished well beaten for that run but came on bundles for his reappearance last summer when winning on his second start after a break.
Has won on soft ground so deteriorating conditions should not be a problem and former champion jockey Richard Johnson is back on board.
Trainer Tim Vaughan’s only two runners in the past fortnight have finished first and second so a good run can be expected.
DAKOTA GOLD (3.30 Beverley, 5f Listed)
Loves soft ground so the rain this week is clearly a boost to his chances and he ran well enough in the Great St Wilfrid at Ripon last time to suggest he is about to hit form.
Draw in stall 8 is a slight concern but he should have enough pace to track the leaders before making his challenge.
Expect him to bounce back to form.
ACHILL ROAD BOY (4.00 Sedgefield, 3m2f handicap chase)
Conditions will make this a thorough stamina test and there is 2st separating the top and bottom weight.
Achill Road Boy is one of the few horses guaranteed to stay this trip and is well handicapped off a mark of 102 given he would have won off a mark of 107 at Fakenham last May when falling at the last.
Finished second on his only start at this track and has had a couple of runs to prep him for this likely target.
