FRIDAY HORSE RACING BEST BETS – TIPS FOR FRIDAY’S FLAT & JUMPS MEETINGS
2:20 Haydock – Download The Casumo App Handicap Cl3 (3yo+ 0-95) 6f
THALER can get back to winning ways dropping back in trip and the Dubawi colt ought to be very competitive here under Ryan Moore.
Sir Michael Stoute’s promising sort stepped up on a decent debut to twice finish runner-up in starts at Leicester and Kempton. He then returned from a break to strike gold over this trip back at Kempton, bating Shobiz by four lengths and he was only denied by a narrow margin back over a longer trip latest at the Sunbury track.
He has travelled strongly in his races and it might be that a return to six furlongs will be very much in his favour having scored his only win to date at this distance.
Racing off the same mark as last time he is due to go up 1lb in future and he can take advantage here.
2:40 Redcar – Sam Hall Memorial Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-85) 1m6f
Cases can be made for all the runners but ARCTIC FOX gets the vote to come out on top here and Martin Todhunter’s charge can end a losing streak stretching back 13 flat runs and almost two years.
The Mastercraftsman mare has been in decent form this term, twice finding the silver medal berth and she was beaten only a half-length into second latest by Dreamweaver at Haydock last month.
She was only run down late that day but a repeat of that run ought to put her firmly in the mix again here and a first-time tongue-tie can help to eke out a little more improvement that can see her going close.
2:48 Fakenham – Breeders’ Cup On Sky Sports Racing Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase (GBB Race) Cl3 (4yo+) 3m
Only three runners and another race where none of them can be ruled out although preference is for GO MILLIE GO who was progressive last term over hurdles where she won twice and the the Milan mare can continue in similar vein now trying fences.
Stuart Edmunds’ charge struck wins at Stratford and Exeter around this time before acquitting herself well in Listed company and if bringing that level of form over the larger obstacles then she could prove a tough nut to crack.
The switch to chasing should be no issue given she has plenty of experience in point-to-points in Ireland and she ought to go close thrust straight into a handicap.
3:05 Uttoxeter – Low Cost Roofing Stoke Handicap Hurdle (GBB Race) Cl2 (3yo+ 0-145) 2m7½f
BANNIXTOWN GLORY has already made her presence felt over fences, making an instant impact when going in at Cartmel in June and while the Fame And Glory mare hasn’t been seen since she can pick up where she left off on her return.
Donald McCain’s yard is firing on all cylinders at present and the selection made a successful transition to the larger obstacles when narrowly gaining a half-length verdict over Getareason and there could be more to come from her heading back over the smaller obstacles.
That last chase win came from this mark which represents a career-high rating over hurdles, but a good claimer takes 10lbs off and with the yard among the winners she is expected to run well here.
7:30 Newcastle – DFE Electrical Commercial & Domestic Handicap (Div II) Cl6 (3yo+ 0-55) 6f
ONE FOR THE LADIES produced a career-best effort to register a first win when successful over course and distance last month and despite being 7lbs higher in the weights for that victory the Swiss Spirit filly may be worth chancing again to follow up.
Mick Easterby’s charge had posted some solid runs in defeat prior to that victory, twice making the frame on turf over the summer; but she appeared to relish the return to six furlongs on tapeta when running out a ready winner from Oriental Lilly latest and a repeat ought to put her in the frame again.
Joanna Mason’s 3lbs claim helps to offset some of the hike in the weights she has to carry here and she ought to go well again here.
