RACING TIPS FOR WEDNESDAY 30 JUNE – BEST BETS FOR THE DAY’S UK RACEMEETINGS
2:10 Thirsk – Join Racing TV Now Selling Handicap Cl6 (3-5yo 0-55) 1m
KAYFAST WARRIOR has yet to tackle turf in any of his career starts to date, but it might be worth chancing the No Nay Never gelding to get off the mark now switching to grass for the first time and Tom Dascombe’s charge has shown improved form this term handicapping.
Placed in all three starts this campaign, most recently when finishing just over one length third to Final Fantasy in first-time cheekpieces he made most of the early running on that occasion before keeping on well from a prominent position although he was no match for the winner.
The handicapper has left him alone at the weights as he now tackles turf where he gets a handy allowance under weight-for-age and if he can prove as adept on this surface as he has been on the all-weather then there’s no reason why he can’t go well here and he could get off the mark now.
2:55 Musselburgh – Every Race Live On Racing TV Handicap Cl6 (4yo+ 0-55) 1m4½f
DE MAZZARO was a fair sort in Ireland for Tom McCourt and the So You Think gelding shaped well back on the flat on his first start for Tristan Davidson having been chasing for his previous handler and owner Victor Thompson.
Racing from 1lb out of the handicap on his first run for Davidson he found only one too good at Beverley earlier in the month and he can compete here from 1lb lower in the weights as he competes from out of the handicap although he’s due to go up to 48 in future.
He was run down late that day by the winner having perhaps made his effort quicker than ideal, but it was a solid run and his old form in Ireland stands up in this race given he was a Fairyhouse winner back in June last year from this rating so could resume winning ways on just his second start for the yard.
3:05 Worcester – Free Tips Daily On attheraces.com Handicap Chase Cl5 (5yo+ 0-105) 2m7f
UNAI has shaped well since going chasing this term, finishing third no less than three times before getting off the mark at Warwick in April; Ben Pauling’s charge was last seen finishing fourth to Max Dynamo at Fontwell last month.
That was a fair effort where he was taken on for the lead and he possibly paid the price of doing too much. He might get an easier time of things this time around and the handicapper has eased him 1lb so he should remain competitive in this contest.
The drop back in trip also looks a decent move and still likely on a winnable mark he can go well again here as he bids to get back to winning ways.
4:35 Musselburgh – Racing TV Profits Returned To Racing Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-80) 5f
DENZIL’S LAUGHING hasn’t built on his reappearance victory at Catterick back in April but it might be worth chancing on a return to form by the Mehmas gelding who has run well here in the past.
Keith Dalgleish’s charge was last seen finishing down the field behind Sir Titus at Redcar in May, possibly doing too much in helping to force the pace over the stiffer five furlongs than he tackles here.
The handicapper has eased him 1lb also and so he’s only 2lbs above the mark from which he scored at Catterick in April where he beat Mokaman; he also finished runner-up here off a mark of 70 last term when beaten a short-head by Vivacious Boy.
If he can bounce back to that sort of form or that which saw him land his recent Catterick success then he could go close here and at a fair price might be worth chancing.
6:05 Kempton – Unibet New Instant Roulette Handicap (Jockey Club Grassroots Sprint Series Qualifier) Cl5 (3yo 0-70) 6f
PERSARIA is yet to score in four runs but the Equiano filly can rectify that stat here with a breakthrough win and James Fanshawe’s charge ought to go close.
Fifth on both her all-weather starts last term she has returned from almost seven months off with back-to-back placed efforts on turf at Lingfield and Leicester latterly where she was beaten just two lengths by Night Of Romance.
That form has worked out quite well with the winner going in again since while the fourth has also won and the selection can compete here from the same mark as that last run so she ought to be involved given she’s open to further improvement.
With a good draw on the inside for this contest she gets plenty of weight from hat-trick seeking Berrtie and the progressive filly should make her presence felt here.
7:05 Kempton – Try Our New Price Boosts At Unibet Handicap Cl3 (4yo+ 0-90) 1m4f
RODRIGO DIAZ improved last term for a break, winning three times on the all-weather which included at this venue and David Simcock’s charge continued his progress this season, finishing runner-up at Newmarket on his return before getting back to winning ways with a defeat of Duke Of Condicote at Doncaster earlier this month.
The Golden Horn gelding struck by two lengths on that occasion, travelling well in the race and kicking clear at the furlong marker to score readily and he can defy a 6lbs rise in the weights with the form looking useful as both the runner-up along with the third and fourth horses have all run well since.
Back on an artificial surface he could continue on his upward curve and likely to still have more to offer he looks set to deliver another big run here.
7:25 Bath – Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Blaythwayt Plate Handicap Cl3 (3yo+ 0-90) 1m
SIAM FOX is best forgiven his recent below-par run in the Britannia Stakes and the Prince Of Lir gelding can quickly bounce back with a better effort.
Richard Hannon’s charge has shown progressive form this term with a brace of wins at Nottingham and Doncaster at the beginning of the month and the run at Royal Ascot under a penalty probably came too soon just four days on from the second of those victories.
That Britannia assignment was also much tougher and he finished mid-division of the field having led the stands’ side ground for much of the way before weakening out of contention. He had finished a close third to Siskany on his only previous run over this course and back in calmer waters he can do better this time around.
8:25 Bath – Read Hollie Doyle’s Column On attheraces.com Handicap Cl6 (3yo+ 0-65) 1m2f
NASTASIYA has shown glimmers of ability and enough to suggest she can pick up a win; she could do so here dropping back in company and trip having perhaps been stretched by 1m 6f at Redcar at the beginning of the month.
Ed Walker’s Archipenko filly found nothing for pressure that day, gradually weakening out of the picture but she is surely capable of better and this drop back to ten furlongs could be in her favour; while the application of blinkers for the first time can elicit some improvement.
Still a lightly-raced sort it wouldn’t come as a surprise if she were to have a bit more to come and dropping into a Class 6 contest with her earlier Windsor fourth in a higher grade working out well she could open her account now.
