Friday’s 6,451/1 Lucky 15 – Four Confident E/W Tips For 23rd September

Four meetings go to post across the UK on Friday, 23rd September, with the action coming from Haydock, Newcastle, Newmarket and Worcester. Our lucky 15 includes a double on the Newmarket card, plus one at Pontefract and one on the jumps card at Worcester.

Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across the cards, which make up our advised Friday Lucky 15.

*Odds correct at time of posting – 12:30pm Thursday 22nd September*


Random Harvest (1.50 Newmarket) – 14/1

We like one at a big price in this – Ed Walker’s RANDOM HARVEST looks overpriced here and can cause a minor upset. 

Since stepping up to a mile she has won a class 3, and has placed in three of the other four races, including a close second in Listed company last month. Rising Star beat her at Royal Ascot (and again beat her in that Listed race in August), but she gained a valuable win back at Ascot the following month, beating System in the process. 

She then finished third behind Tempus two weeks later, and that one has since won twice in Group 3 company to boost that form. She stepped up to Listed company and only found Rising Star too good again, but she did finish ahead of Crenelle that day, and is 3lb better off with that rival in this. 

Crystal Caprice and Zanbaq look set to be the biggest dangers (in that order), but at the prices we’re happy to take them on with Random Harvest.


Foden (2.05 Haydock) – 5/1

FODEN has been off since winning at Beverley back in April, but the form of that race has worked out well and he can make a winning reappearance following an 163 day break. 

He rattled home that day and as already mentioned, the form of that race has been boosted multiple times since:

  • 2nd Evocative Spark – Won a class 3 next time out and has since won a class 2.
  • 3rd Truely Aclaimed – Won a class 4 and class 3 since. 
  • 4th Piastrella – Won a class 4 since. 
  • 5th Exminster – Won a class 3 since. 

He won that race following a 174 day break, so the break here shouldn’t be a problem. The extra half a furlong here should be a positive, as he rattled home that day and kept on in the manner of a horse who would need further in the future.  

Recent Windsor scorer Croupier looks to be the biggest danger, but we’re confident Foden can follow up that Beverley success here.


Olivia Maralda (3.00 Newmarket) – 5/1

Commissioning looks set to go off a heavy favourite following an impressive victory on debut here back in July, but the form of that race hasn’t worked out brilliantly, so we’re taking her on with OLIVIA MARALDA.

Since stepping up to 7f, she bolted up to win at Newbury by seven lengths, before only finding Meditate too good in the Debutante Stakes. The form of that race received a welcome boost with Meditate only finding one too good in the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes on unsuitably soft ground. 

Olivia Maralda is the only runner Irish trainer Michael O’Callaghan sends over to Newmarket on Friday, and we’re confident she has what it takes to win this, at the chief expense of Dance In The Grass and Commissioning.


San Giovanni (3.40 Worcester) – 11/2

Trainer Harry Fry has made an excellent start to the jumps season, sending out six winners (plus eight places) from just twenty-run runners (29% strike-rate) and he can continue that top form with SAN GIOVANNI

He’s won both of his last two, starting off with a comfortable victory when making all to beat Biowavego (who lines up here) at Worcester in June – that runner-up has since come out and won a similar race next time out to boost that form. He then went to Newton Abbot and bolted up to win easily, beating Paul Nicholls’ Huelgoat by 20 lengths. That runner then went out and won next time out, so the form of his races is working out extremely well.

This is the only runner Harry Fry is sending on the five hour round trip to Worcester on Friday, so we’re banking on it being a worthwhile journey with San Giovanni landing the hat-trick.
