Monday’s 1,372/1 Lucky 15 – Our UK Racing Best Bets On August 29
There are seven meetings in Britain and Ireland on August 29th. Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across the cards, which make up our advised Friday Lucky 15
Redrobin (3.31 Chepstow)
Redrobin is an admirably consistent sort for the grade, but has proved tricky to win with. He’s one win from 17 in his career and has a host of seconds to his name in similar contests. There is hope here though that he can once again get his head in front as he returns to the course and distance of his sole win back in July.
He’s likely to have the good ground that he acts well on, which should be on the drier side with no rain forecast and a big run is expected. This is modest waters and the likely big danger is Connie’s Rose who goes for the hat-trick and is a fellow C&D winner.
Sharron Macready (3.55 Southwell)
David Loughnane’s filly Sharron Macready built on her solid second at Wolverhampton with a really game win beating Phoenix Beach by a neck. Those rivals take each other on again here, but Rossa Ryan’s ride should confirm places as she continues to learn her job more.
There were plenty of signs of inexperience last time, despite the win against a much wiser opponent. David Loughnane knows how to get the best of younger horses and this filly can make it two wins from three.
Tonto’s Spirit (3.59 Cartmel)
Tonto’s Spirit was a winner at this meeting off 14lbs higher and as a result gets hefty amounts weight from his rivals. He comes here on the back of a solid third at Sedgefield last time. He’ll have been aimed at this and will be be match fit here.
At the age of ten there’s plenty of miles on the clock, but he’s a tough sort who has a big performance or two left in the tank. He seems to relish his trips to Cartmel too, a marmite track, having registered six wins in ten attempts. He can win here again under Conor O’Farrel.
Pokhara (4.30 Southwell)
A tight little contest with plenty of chances, but no better than Pokhara who comes here in great spirits after landing the odds at Windsor last time out. He looks to have plenty of scope and is only raised 3lb for that victory.
It’s his debut on the All Weather service so that has to be taken on trust, but if he can build on his last outing he should be bang there. Benoit De La Sayette is a stand out jockey for this apprentice race and is great value taking off 3lbs.
