With plenty of racing to look forward to we’ve assessed all four of the day’s fixtures to pick out our daily racing best bets and tips.
DAILY RACING BEST BETS – TIPS FOR THE DAY’S UK FLAT AND JUMPS FIXTURES
1:00 Brighton – Starsports.Bet Fillies’ Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-75) 6f
GIVE ‘EM THE SLIP is yet to get off the mark but the lightly-raced Oasis Dream filly has largely run well in defeat and comes here on the back of a good third at Lingfield when last seen out last month, beaten less than one length by Lilikan.
Charlie Hills’ charge has seen that form franked since and she had run well for second over this course and distance earlier in the campaign behind Velvet Vista where she was beaten three lengths, doing too much too soon.
She can race here from the same mark as last time and she ought to give a good account again as she chases a first career win.
2:20 Perth – Auto Services Perth Isuzu Novices’ Handicap Chase (GBB Race) Cl4 (4yo+ 0-110) 3m
GRAGEELAGH GIRL has been in good form this term, finding only one too good on her reappearance from almost ten months off at Newton Abbot and then running better than the bare result at Stratford latest when finishing fourth to Goa Lil.
Fergal O’Brien’s charge was beaten around ten lengths on that occasion, perhaps not helped by the drop in trip and better can be expected from the Craigsteel mare here as she returns to a more suitable trip.
The cheekpieces she wore for the first time on that occasion are retained and eased 1lb she can make her presence felt with this longer trip sure to be more to her liking.
3:10 Newton Abbot – Happy Birthday Wayne Hockley Congratulations Handicap Hurdle (GBB Race) Cl2 (4yo+) 3m2½f
DRUMLEE WATAR has shown improved form for his wind operation, reeling off a hat-trick of wins which include one over course and distance and the Watar gelding can get back to winning ways having run a good race in defeat latest at Bangor.
Warren Greatrex’s charge also won at Uttoxeter and Worcester prior to being beaten less than one length into third behind Calum Gilhooley at Bangor last month where he was unable to sustain his effort.
That form looks fair and racing off the same mark here where he is equipped with a visor for the first time he could go well again and there would be no shock in seeing him turn in a bold performance back over this course and distance.
3:30 Brighton – Download The Star Sports App Handicap Cl6 (3yo 0-65) 1m
SAM BELLAMY found some improvement to get off the mark over this course and distance last month and Mark Johnston’s charge can follow up.
The Iffraaj gelding was always handy there and took up the running two furlongs out before running on well and another positive ride is likely under Joe Fanning.
Only 4lbs higher here he has since seen the form franked by the runner-up going one better, but now he has got his own head in front he could have more to give and no surprise if he doubles his win tally here.
4:15 Newton Abbot – Racing Partnership Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Chase Cl5 (4yo+ 0-105) 3m2f
It could be worth chancing ACHY BREAKY HEART who is lightly raced over fences and got off the mark when taking a small race here in July and Milton Harris’ charge hasn’t been disgraced in two starts since back over hurdles.
The Milan mare has had just four starts over fences and she was a ready winner when beating Grageelagh Girl by two lengths when last seen and she can compete here from the same mark although Mitchell Bastyan’s 3lbs claim leaves her fairly weighted and potentially a big run so there’d be no surprise too see her in the mix again.
5:55 Newcastle – Cazoo Search Drive Smile Handicap Cl6 (3yo+ 0-65) 1m2f
LIBBY AMI wasted no time in getting off the mark following her swith to Grant Tuer, winning over one mile at Carlisle last moth and The Gurkha filly can follow up here with only a 3lbs rise in the weights to contend with.
Also a winner for John Quinn at Doncaster in July she shaped in that last success as if she was worth a try at this longer trip given how she stayed on for the victory and the third won next time out to give the form a boost, while the fourth horse home has made the frame in both subsequent starts.
This longer trip could bring out some more improvement and she can strike again from what remains a potentially workable mark.
