Wednesday Wonders – Best Horse Racing Tips as Jump Racing Returns To Britain on July 1
HORSE RACING TIPS
It’s the return of jumps racing in Britain on Wednesday and we’re hoping we can hit the bookies for six with our selections
Our experts have scoured the form and looked at every runner as they bring you the best horse racing tips in Britain.
THREE SAINTS BAY (2.20 Musselburgh, 7f handicap)
A tight handicap can go the way of Three Saints Bay, who pulled way too hard and set too fast a pace when making his return in a hot race at Newmarket.
That run can be forgotten and he is now 6lb lower than when recording his last win, which came less than a year ago.
With the bonus that he is yet to finish outside the first four in five visits to this track, including a win over course and distance, he could get the better of his rivals here.
BYRON FLYER (3.10 Southwell, 2m4f handicap hurdle)
Finished only around ten lengths behind subsequent Cheltenham festival winner Paisley Park at Aintree a couple of years ago and has a touch of class about him.
Given a pipe-opener on the Flat at Newmarket three weeks ago, which should have got him spot-on for this run over hurdles.
Was in good form over jumps when last seen in September, should like the ground and loves going left-handed so this track should suit.
BARNEY BULLET (3.20 Musselburgh, 1m4f handicap)
Making his first start for trainer Rebecca Menzies, whose horses have been running well in the last week or so.
Could still be improvement to come over this trip, which he has yet to race over, judged on his staying on third over 1m3f at Ripon at the end of last season.
Rated only 48 but this looks a weak race and first-time cheekpieces could result in him featuring in the finish.
MACKAAR (7.15 Kempton, 1m4f handicap)
Another horse who we hope will find a couple of pounds of improvement for wearing first-time cheekpieces.
Made an okay comeback at Newbury and is clearly talented but suspicion is his focus has been elsewhere, so the headgear should help.
Has form figures of 411 on all-weather surfaces so there is also a chance that he’s just better away from the turf and he can be given another chance here.
