RACING TIPS FOR TUESDAY – BEST BETS FOR THE DAY’S FLAT & JUMPS FIXTURES
1:33 Lingfield – Heed Your Hunch At Betway Handicap (Div I) Cl6 (3yo+ 0-65) 6f
QUEEN OF BURGUNDY arrives here in search of a hat-trick of wins and Joseph Parr’s charge can oblige punters with a third successive victory here.
The Lethal Force mare has won her last two starts, one of which came over this trip when successful at Kempton last month and she followed up over seven furlongs latest at the same venue when defying a penalty to beat River Chorus.
She’s been reassessed with a further 4lbs rise in the weights to contend with, but she appeared to win with something to spare last time and the runner-up filled the same spot on a subsequent run so the form looks fair.
It wouldnt’ come as a surprise to see her remain competitive despite her rise in the weights and every chance she can collect a third straight victory here.
1:55 Exeter – Betway Haldon Gold Cup (A Limited Handicap Chase) (Grade 2) (GBB Race) Cl1 (4yo+) 2m1½f
Paul Nicholls saddles two in the race including last year’s winner Greaneteen who will likely be a popular choice to retain his crown. However he might find it difficult conceding 17lbs to HITMAN who ranked among last season’s top novices and the Falco gelding can start the new season with a win.
A French hurdle winner he wasted no time in getting off the mark for this yard with an easy victory at Ffos Las before a gallant runner-up effort behind Allmankind at Sandown in a Grade One and he fell back at that venue next time in another top-level contest before readily winning a three-runner contest at Newbury.
Last seen finishing third to Protektorat in the Manifesto Chase at Aintree where his stamina again appeared suspect over the longer trip he could prove tough to beat dropping back to this distance for his return and having won first time up last term he could be worth chancing to repeat the feat on the back of a wind operation which might unlock some further improvement.

BARSHAA has been in excellent fettle since her debut at Nottingham, making the frame in all five starts since which include a brace of recent wins and the Dubawi filly can land the hat-trick here.
Simon and Ed Crisford’s charge got off the mark at Kempton in September, beating Peripeteia by two lengths and followed in with a narrow victory over Brains when last seen scoring at Bath in October where she ran out a three-parts of a length victor.
That latest run represents some decent form with the runner-up franking the form on Monday past and a 3lbs rise in the weights looks workable with this longer trip expected to bring out some further improvement so no surprise if she were to land her three-timer now.
2:55 Exeter – Betway Stayers’ Handicap Chase (Challenger Staying Chase Series Qualifier) Cl3 (4yo+ 0-130) 3m
POPPA POUTINE makes his return from almost eight months off and the Sholokhov gelding could run well on his first try over fences.
Nigel Twiston-Davies’ charge is lightly raced and placed in an Irish point-to-point prior to joining this yard so that experience offers hope he’ll take to this discipline while he showed a decent level of form over hurdles last term with two wins from five starts including on his final start of the campaign when beating Aheadfullofreams at Catterick in March.
He has run well fresh in the past and his in-form yard will likely have him well set-up for this return so he could be worth chancing to make a winning chase debut from what could be a fair mark.
3:00 Newcastle – Betway Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-80) 1m2f
Lightly-raced SAYF AL DAWLA has had just four career starts, one of which yielded a win at Salisbury in September and the Frankel colt can get back to winning ways here.
Peter Chapple-Hyam’s charge had shaped well on his two previous starts before striking at Salisbury with a three lengths’ defeat of Tres Speciale and he subsequently lost no caste in defeat at Yarmouth latest on his handicap debut when finishing third.
That longer trip seemed to just stretch him late on as he had travelled well into the contest and into a challenging position before his effort petered out and dropping back in distance here he may be capable of a resumption to winning form.
5:30 Newcastle – MansionBet Best Odds Guaranteed Handicap Cl6 (3yo+ 0-55) 7f
AQUAMAS has been getting better with recent runs and the Mehmas filly can continue her progression to get off the mark here.
Michael Dods’ charge has improved her finishing position with every start this term, most recently being beaten only a short-head second behind Kats Bob at Ayr in September and she could go one better with a repeat of that last run.
She was arguably unlucky having met with some trouble before running on well and the handicapper has only pushed her up 1lb which may prove lenient and the application of cheekpieces can unlock further improvement so every chance she’ll make her presence felt again.
