Horse Racing Tips on Monday, August 1

There are four meetings spread across Britain on Monday, August 1st with the action coming from Ayr, Ripon, Carlisle and Windsor. Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across the cards, which make up our advised Monday Lucky 15.


Sequeira Lady (3.18 Ayr)

The Scottish Sun Ladies Night On Saturday Handicap is an excellent opportunity for the lightly-raced SEQUEIRA LADY to make a winning handicap debut.

This daughter of Mehmas has been limited to just three starts to date, all coming in all-weather novices earlier this year.

She cut little ice at Newcastle and Wolverhampton but was much improved when a 50/1 fourth at Southwell when last seen back in January. Sequeira Lady was only beaten just over 5l there, and the front two are now rated in the 80s, with Bare Necessity, who finished directly behind Sequeira Lady, now rated 71.

That form suggests that Sequeira Lady is well treated here off a mark of 59, especially with this step up to 7f capable of unlocking some improvement. This isn’t an overly strong race, and it is hoped that Sequeira Lady, despite her absence, can land this.

Qaasid (3.55 Ripon)

Ripon’s Billy Nevett Memorial Handicap looks like an open affair, and it might just pay to take a chance on QAASID for trainer Julie Camacho and jockey Paul Hanagan.

This gelding admittedly has unappealing form figures, but he has fared better than the bare result the last twice, finishing just over 3l off the leaders at Beverley last time out, only giving best late on.

He’s 2lb lower here, so now 10lb below the mark he started life in handicaps off, and with this just his eleventh career start he remains open to improvement. If the addition of a visor manages to eke out even a small improvement from Qaasid here, he can outrun his odds.


Fire Eyes (6.05 Carlisle)

The Thomas Sendall Appreciation Handicap takes place at Carlisle on Monday, and FIRE EYES can provide trainer Lawrence Mullaney with his fourth winner of the season.

This filly was an impressive Kempton novice winner for George Boughey last season, and although she’s 0-5 since joining her current stable she caught the eye when last of four in a Leicester handicap last time.

Fire Eyes probably went for home a little too soon there and paid for those exploits late on. She runs off 3lb lower here and is expected to appreciate the slight drop back in trip.

If jockey Megan Nicholls can deliver her charge later she should go close in what looks a modest enough 0-70 handicap.

Bowland Park (7.45 Carlisle)

The training partnership of Daniel & Claire Kubler is 2-4 with their runners up at Carlisle, and of their two entrants on Monday’s card, BOWLAND PARK looks particularly interesting in the card’s feature Emerald Handicap.

This New Bay gelding came good with a pair of wins around this time last year, and he’s shaped far better than the bare result the last thrice, finishing an excellent fourth in a competitive 0-105 handicap at Newcastle before finding the switch to hold up tactics against him when fifth at Chelmsford.

Bowland Park now finds himself dropped into Class 4 company for the first time since landing a Haydock handicap last August, and he’s now a pound below that winning mark. Nicola Currie is quite a notable jockey booking for this somewhat unusual Professional Female Jockeys handicap, and if she reverts Bowland Park back to his favoured front running he can run these rivals ragged from the front of the pack.
