RACING BEST BETS ON TUESDAY – TIPS FOR BRIGHTON, NOTTINGHAM, HEXHAM, WOLVERHAMPTON & HUNTINGDON
12:30 Brighton – Download The vickers.bet App Handicap Cl6 (3yo+ 0-52) 5½f
BIG TIME MAYBE might be worth chancing to win the opening race of the day at the seaside venue and the consistent Dandy Man gelding can end a lengthy losing streak.
Michael Attwater’s charge struck his last win over this course back in August 2019 and while his form has been quite patchy since he’s been proving consistent in recent runs where he has made the frame in five of his last six starts on the all-weather.
The latest of those saw him find only Lethal Blast too good by two lengths at Lingfield last month and that form has been boosted since. He reverts to turf here from a vastly reduced mark and 10lbs below his last winning rating so he is handicapped to go close here.
3:20 Brighton – vickers.bet Try Out Our Bet Builder Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-80) 1m
WIDAAD appeared to score a shade readily at Newmarket on Friday past and assuming this doesn’t come too soon George Boughey’s charge can quickly follow up under a penalty.
The Muhaarar filly posted a career best latest, scoring by a length and a half despite hanging right on the run to the line; the front two were clear though and a 5lbs penalty for that success remains workable if he’s none the worse for those exertions.
Returning to a slightly longer trip won’t be an issue either and he handles softer ground so any ease will be in his favour; he can follow up then here if the quick turnaround just four days on hasn’t left a mark.
3:30 Nottingham – Racing TV Profits Returned To Racing Handicap (A Jockey Club Grassroots Stayers Series Qualifier) Cl5 (4yo+ 0-75) 2m
COCHISE ran out a comfortable winner at Bath on his final outing prior to a lengthy absence and having understandably needed the run at Chelmsford on his reappearance to get back on the scoresheet at this venue earlier in the month.
That success came in soft ground and over a shorter trip, but his previous win at Bath came over an extended two miles so the return to this trip will hold no fears and he should give another good account in his bid to follow up.
Roger Charlton’s Intello gelding is up 5lbs for that latest win which is likely to remain workable given he is open to further improvement as a stayer and with conditions no problem he ought to post a big run here.
3:40 Wolverhampton – Black Country’s Only Racecourse Handicap Cl5 (4yo+ 0-70) 7f
TURQUOISE KINGDOM is less exposed than most of these rivals and while his overall form perhaps leaves him with something to find here the Dubawi gelding can find some improvement to get off the mark here.
Simon Crisford’s charge was last seen returning from almost four months off the track with a tame effort at Yarmouth when last of four behind Pactolus; he may have needed that however and can come on for the run.
He drops back in distance for this outing which might coincide with some improvement along with the application of blinkers for the first time and if he can find some progress with the headgear fitted he can go close if stripping fitter for his return.
5:25 Huntingdon – Racing TV Mares’ Handicap Hurdle Cl5 (4yo+ 0-105) 2m
TABLE MOUNTAIN was a fair stayer on the flat when trained by Andrew Balding, winning off 82 in an Ascot handicap last July before failing to cut much ice in Pattern races thereafter.
The Phoenix Reach filly joined Tom Symonds for a hurdling campaign where she has posted some useful efforts and shown enough ability to suggest she can win races in this discipline.
Placed three times in novice and maiden company she was given a very tough assignment at Cheltenham on his handicap debut where she acquitted herself well in defeat in a Grade Three contest; but this is a big drop in class and she’s had wind surgery since so could prove a different proposition now and she can get off the mark over hurdles here.
6:25 Huntingdon – Racing TV Handicap Hurdle Cl4 (4yo+ 0-115) 2m3½f
The application of a visor sparked some improvement in the fortunes of KLOUD GATE who got back to winning ways over this course and distance earlier in the month and Gary Moore’s charge is taken to follow up here assuming the headgear has the same positive effect.
The Astronomer Royal gelding ran out a six lengths’ victor in that last outing, winning readily and if arriving here in similar mood with the headgear retained he could be up to the task of defying a 7lbs rise in the weights.
He is still 4lbs below his previous winning mark at Doncaster back in December 2018 after which he was thought good enouth to have a crack at the 2019 Lanzarote Hurdle where he was sent off favourite. While he’s perhaps not quite up to that level he remains capable of useful form and if the ground doesn’t cut up then he can strike a quick winning double.
6:35 Hexham – Ne-Bet Sportsbook And Casino Novices’ Handicap Chase Cl5 (5yo+ 0-105) 3m
GUN MERCHANT showed some fair form in Ireland when trained by Gordon Elliott and the Kayf Tara gelding can get off the mark at the fifth attempt following his move to this yard.
Ann Hamilton’s charge had run creditably in three runs last term and he made a pleasing enough return to action when finishing around ten lengths’ third at Kelso earlier in the month behind Do Not Disturb.
He might have needed that effort and can do better here with that outing under his belt; while the handicapper has eased him 2lbs in the weights as he eases into a slighter easier grade so a big run wouldn’t come as a surprise.
