Back In Business – Top tips at Newcastle and Kempton on Tuesday, June 2


It’s back – Racing returned to Britain on Monday and the show is now firmly back on the road with two meetings at Kempton and Newcastle on Tuesday.

Our experts are so excited that they have had no sleep for 48 hours to bring you the best Horse Racing Tips around the world. So check out these tips and hit the betting buttons below to place your bets at the best price available.

SIR BUSKER (13.20 Newcastle, 1m handicap)

The recipient of two Jamie Spencer specials, one great and one not so great, on his last two starts at Kempton and appeals as the type to improve again as a four-year-old.

Obviously acts well on artificial surfaces, and his Kempton runs both came on ground described as standard/slow, the same as that he encounters today.

Trainer William Knight has booked all-weather champion jockey Ben Curtis for the ride, which is a huge positive, and he should go well.

CHARMING KID (14.10 Kempton, 5f handicap)

Finished third in the Group 2 July Stakes behind subsequent Group 1 winner Advertise when trained by Richard Fahey in July 2018 but subsequently lost his way big style.

Joined Dean Ivory towards the end of last season and Ivory has made a habit of rejuvenating jaded sprinters throughout his career.

Two runs ago Charming Kid was caught out at the back in a slowly run race dominated by those up with the pace but there was definite glimmers of ability on his last start when he finished third, beaten half a length, at this track. The winner followed up with another victory so the form looks good and he could be about to bounce back to form.

GLEN SHIEL (14.30 Newcastle, 6f handicap)

Raced over further and at distances of up to 1m2f since joining Archie Watson from trainer Andre Fabre last summer.

Ran a string of decent races but shapes like a sprinter and we’re positive about his chances now he competes at this trip for the first time in his career.

Expect him to go to the front and make his stamina tell under record-breaking jockey Hollie Doyle.

REALLY SUPER (17.05 Kempton, 1m4f handicap)

Has been seen more often over the jumps than on the Flat since joining Amy Murphy a couple of years ago but she ran a really good race when last seen on the level at Nottingham last April.

Has since won twice over jumps but it’s interesting to note that Murphy has booked Tom Marquand for the ride with the pair having a 38 per cent strike-rate when teaming up.
