TUESDAY RACING TIPS 14 JULY – AYR, RIPON, BATH & SOUTHWELL
1:05 Bath – Wick Handicap Cl6 (3yo+ 0-58) 5½f
CAPPANANTY CON ended a twelve-run losing streak when readily scoring over course and distance at the beginning of the month and the Zebedee gelding can quickly follow up.
Forrmerly with Charlie Wallis, he has shown up well in his two outings for Martin Attwater, getting to within a neck of Rewaayat at Lingfield on his debut for this yard and then going one better latest when beating Dreamboat Annie under this rider twelve days ago.
He has a 5lbs rise to contend with, but his turf mark still leaves him with plenty of scope on the pick of his all-weather exploits – 77-rated all-weather winner at his best – and so he’s clearly well-treated racing from this current handicap mark which he can continue to exploit.
Given the manner of his success last time he could well follow up with a repeat and it wouldn’t come as a shock to see him running well again where he can collect another win.
1:20 Southwell – Sign Solutions Nottingham Handicap Chase Cl3 (4yo+ 0-130) 3m½f
NEW QUAY hasn’t stood a lot of racing in his career, limited to just ten starts since winning an Irish point-to-point; but Dan Skelton’s charge can make his latest reappearance a winning one.
A winner over hurdles back in November 2018, the Mahler gelding offered something to work with in two starts over fences last term, both at Market Rasen which included a good fourth behind Fortified Bay on Boxing Day.
The first three home have all won since and racing off the same mark he looks worth chancing to follow suit and get off the mark in this discipline where he can progress given his point-to-point background.
A few of the Skelton runners have looked in need of a run on their return, but if he’s fully revved up ahead of this first outing in 200 days then he could go close and he remains with the scope to do better as a chaser.
5:15 Ayr – Weddings At Western House Hotel Handicap Cl6 (4yo+ 0-65) 7f
THE BIG HOUSE had the reopposing House Deposit behind when making a return to winning ways at Catterick twelve days ago; Adrian Nicholls’ charge can confirm that form with a follow-up success.
The Coach House gelding appeared to win a shade cosily, running on well having always been prominent and there could still be some scope to improve from this 5lbs higher rating which is negated by his rider’s claim.
Third on his only previous start at this track last term, he has won on similar ground to this and a repeat of that last effort could see him go in again in what looks a trappy contest despite perhaps not enjoying the best of the draw here.
8:15 Ripon – Ure Bank Fillies’ Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-75) 1m4f
William Haggas has his string in decent fettle at present and with a 30% strike-rate with his runners at this venue CHORAL WORK is taken to strike again for her in-form yard.
The Nathaniel filly has progressed with each run, returning from a break to find only one too good at Newbury in June and then building on the outing to get off the mark upped to this trip at Haydock latest where she beat Immortal Beloved by a head where she made all the running.
Despite racing freely she held enough in reserve to hold off the challenge of the runner-up and now stepping into the handicap ranks she might be underestimated from an opening mark of 75 given she has plenty of scope to improve.
She can progress again then and no surprise to see her make her presence felt in this contest.
