RACING TIPS FOR TUESDAY – BEST BETS FOR THE DAY’S FLAT & JUMPS RACING
1:35 Ayr – Virgin Bet Fives Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-80) 6f
JOHN KIRKUP can be hard to predict from one race to the next but it may be worth chancing the Assertive gelding to get back to winning ways with the recent rain in his favour.
Michael Dods’ charge had finished runner-up in soft ground at Haydock in May and went one better over five furlongs here the following month, beating Economic Crisis by a nose. Subsequent runs on quicker ground including in the Bronze Cup have been underwhelming however although the handicapper has dropped him 2lbs following his last run.
A course and distance winner on soft ground in the past he is well treated on old form and while not the most consistent now he ought to appreciate the return to a softer surface and a big run wouldn’t come as a surprise.
2:18 Worcester – Legacy Racing Novices’ Handicap Chase (GBB Race) Cl4 (4yo+ 0-120) 2m7f
DELIGHT OF DUBAI has been consistent this term and yet to finish out of the frame in six starts which includes a pair of wins at Newton Abbot either side of finishing runner-up here behind Oscar Montel in July.
Noel Williams’ charge was value for more than her latest victory back at Newton Abbot last month, clear when making a mistake at the last and losing momentum before rallying well to hold on and the front two pulled a long way clear of the third.
The handicapper has pushed the Dubai Destination mare up 5lbs for that win, but this is an easier grade and she ought to make her presence felt again.
3:20 Ayr – Virgin Bet Handicap Cl3 (3yo+ 0-90) 7f
WOBWOBWOB was a winner in softer ground at York back in May where Adrian Keatley’s charge ran out a three lengths’ winner and having contested better races subsequently the Prince Of Lir gelding posted a better effort back from a break down in grade over course and distance earlier in the month.
That was his first run back in 70 days and it likely has taken any rustiness from him ahead of this latest assignment where has a good 7lbs claimer up and underfoot conditions more likely to suit.
A winner at Newmarket in soft ground, his York success also came on ground with some ease and racing in reapplied cheekpieces he could find some improvement to figure here.
3:28 Worcester – Read Kevin Blake On attheraces.com Handicap Hurdle Cl4 (3yo+ 0-115) 2m4f
BLUE SANS boasts some useful bumper form which she has carried on to hurdling and Fergal O’Brien’s charge can register a third career win over timber here.
The Sans Frontieres mare has won twice from four attempts over hurdles, scoring wins at Fontwell and over this course and distance latest where she wore cheekpieces for the first time and struck readily from Howdilyoudo.
She’s only up 3lbs for that and the lightly-raced sort is still unexposed so may well have better yet to come so with further improvement anticipated she can go well again back here where she can land another victory.
4:45 Sedgefield – carpetgallop.co.uk Supporting Racing Handicap Hurdle (Go North Middle Distance Hurdle Series Qual) Cl4 (3yo+ 0-110) 2m4f
A competitive contest can go the way of THE BLAME GAME who is just one of a number of runners in this contest to be turning out following a last-time win and James Ewart’s charge could follow up.
The Getaway gelding is 2-3 at the Durham track, scoring here last September and resuming winning ways when going in last month with a defeat of Beach Break, scoring by two lengths. That race has since thrown up a subsequent winner and with the handicapper only pushing him up 2lbs for the win he can compete here from 2lbs below his last winning mark.
Given his course and distance record and the fact he arrives here in good nick having finished third the time before he can make his presence felt again in an open race and Brian Hughes gets on well with the seven-year old so another big run wouldn’t come as a surprise.
6:30 Wolverhampton – Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-85) 7f
Lightly-raced ROMAN DESTINY struck on debut here last term and was highly tried subsequently in Group Two and Listed company; the Mehmas gelding has been hit or miss this season but did turn in an improved effort latest when equipped with cheekpieces for the first time and Joseph Parr’s charge can get back to winning ways here returning to this surface.
Also third at Yarmouth in June he was beaten only a neck by Billhilly at Newmarket latest when finishing runner-up and that one has gone on to win twice since to give the form a boost.
He can race from the same mark here while a first-time visor replaces cheekpieces and the change of headgear could coincide with another jolt of improvement so no surprise if he were to get competitive here.
