RACING TIPS FOR TUESDAY – UK HORSE RACING BEST BETS 24 AUGUST
2:00 Yarmouth – Well Balanced Ledger Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-75) 1m3½f
ORIENTAL ART has shaped with promise on more than one occasion this term, twice finishing runner-up and giving the impression that he can pick up a race from this sort of mark.
The Archipenko colt has bagged silver medals at Goodwood and Lingfield and wasn’t beaten far on either occasion; while he most recently finished just over one length fourth behind The Dancing Poet at Thirsk.
That form has been boosted with the winner going in again since and David Simcock’s charge can make his presence felt again here having been left alone at the weights.
2:10 Bangor – Nightingale House Hospice Handicap Chase Cl3 (4yo+ 0-130) 3m
WISHFULL THINKING has been on good terms with himself in recent times, gaining just reward for a couple of runner-up efforts when scoring a shade readily over course and distance last week and the Alflora gelding can go in again.
Sam England’s charge ran out a ten lengths’ winner over Out For Justice, scoring easily and gaining revenge on Mr Mafia who had beaten him previously. This will be a shade tougher under a 7lbs penalty but the veteran can make his presence felt again with a repeat of that last performance and no surprise if he were to go in again.
He remains well treated on his old form despite the 7lbs extra he has to carry here and he could prove a tough nut to crack.
2:50 Musselburgh – Every Race Live On Racing TV Handicap Cl5 (4yo+ 0-70) 1m1f
MARKAZI ended a losing run stretching back to September 2019 when scoring over this course and distance earlier in the month and with confidence restored Liam Bailey’s charge might be able to follow up.
The Dark Angel gelding took advantage of a sliding handicap mark to emerge from the doldrums with a convincing three lengths’ win over Carey Street and despite a 5lbs rise in the weights for that win he remains well-treated on his old form.
He’ll have to back up that return to form last time but he could be capable of another big run and a repeat of last time out could be good enough to see him go in again.
3:10 Bangor – Advanced Brighter Futures Wrexham Handicap Chase Cl3 (4yo+ 0-130) 2m4½f
TARDREE has been in good form this term, winning twice and there could be better still to come from Laura Morgan’s charge over fences.
The Mahler gelding has struck wins over the larger obstacles at Uttoxeter and Market Rasen either side of a solid third at Southwell under a penalty. His latest success saw him run out a wide margin victor over Notnow Seamus, making all and winning readily.
The handicapper has had his say with a 8lbs rise in the weights which will demand more from him, but he’s open to further improvement as a chaser and could prove a tough nut to crack here.
5:15 Newbury – BetVictor Handicap Cl4 (3yo 0-80) 7f
NINE TALES has looked a tricky customer but there’s no denying he has ability and Roger Varian’s charge can get back on the scoresheet.
The Kingman colt is a dual-winner this term already despite carrying his head awkwardly and his troublesome tendencies were again in evidence when disappointing in his hat-trick bid at Chelmsford latest where he dropped himself in rear and carried his head high throughout the race before finding little under pressure.
Back up in trip returning to turf for this assignment he could do better if his awkwardness can be put under control and he remains one with ability who can make his presence felt.
6:05 Salisbury – British Stallion Studs EBF Conditions Stakes Cl3 (3yo+) 6f
SAINT LAWRENCE looked a useful sort last term, winning twice which included a Listed contest at Newbury and finishing third in the Horris Hill Stakes; Roger Varian’s charge can get back to winning ways here.
The Al Kazeem colt has twice finished runner-up in starts this term at Newbury and Ascot, the latter coming behind Rohaan in the Group Three Pavilion Stakes. He then failed to fire at Haydock in the Sandy Lane Stakes behind the same rival but can get back on track here dropping in grade and back on better ground.
Possibly resentful of cheekpieces last time the headgear is quickly dispensed with and he could go well in a tricky race.
6:35 Salisbury – Peter Symonds Catering Handicap Cl3 (4yo+ 0-95) 1m6f
EAST ASIA hit the ground running following his move to Ian Williams from the Emirates, winning his first three outings at Newbury and Goodwood prior to disappointing on tapeta in the Northumberland Vase; however it might be worth chancing the Iffraaj gelding to bounce back to winning form here.
The six-year old bounced back from that lesser effort by finishing fifth on both subsequent outings back on turf at Newmarket in the Bet365 Handicap and latterly at Ascot in the Shergar Cup Stayers’ event where he was only beaten three lengths.
He’s since been eased 1lb and drops back in both trip and class for this latest outing so every chance he can make his presence felt here.
6:45 Newbury – Visit Newbury Handicap Cl5 (3yo 0-75) 1m4f
MUSHIRIF is getting better with each run, most recently finding only one too good at Wolverhampton and the Belardo colt can continue his improvement to get off the mark here.
Roger Varian’s charge was stepping up to this longer distance for the first time when almost beating Maketh Believe where he was denied by only a head at Wolverhampton following a 80-day break, battling well and there’s likely more to come from him.
The winner subsequently finished behind the fourth horse when that pair clashed at Lingfield next time so the form could be very fair and a 1lbs rise in the weights appears lenient given his potential for improvement.
