Horse Racing tips

The Ebor Festival may have come to an end but there is still some fantastic action on Sunday with Group races on the card at Sandown and some decent performers in action over the jumps at Cartmel..

So check out Sunday’s horse racing tips and don’t forget to click the links to take advantage of the best price on offer.

DEMI SANG (2.15 Cartmel, 2m1f handicao chase)

Finished last on his return in a handicap hurdle last month but better can be expected now he goes back over fences at his favourite track.

The JP McManus-owned horse has won two of his three starts around this track and is now back down to his last winning mark.

Any market move will be significant for him given his ownership and he could be poised to bounce back to form.

MURAAD (2.30 Sandown, 1m2f handicap)

Flashy grey so you will not be able to miss him through the course of this race and there is the promise of more to come from him now he tackles this trip for the first time.

Flew home to win over a furlong shorter at Glorious Goodwood last time after looking in trouble a fair way from home and the horse he beat on that occasion finished first past the post before being disqualified in a hot handicap at Newbury last time.

Plenty to like about his chances.

LAVENDER’S BLUE (3.05 Sandown, 1m Group 3)

Won this race last year so we know she’s suited by the track and she ran far better than seventh of eight suggests in the Group 1 Nassau Stakes at Goodwood last time, when she found it difficult to get a clear run a couple of furlongs out and was far from disgraced.

Drops in grade and jockey Jim Crowley is back on her for the first time since steering her to victory in this contest last time.

GUMBALL (5.20 Sandown, 1m6f handicap)

Better known for his exploits over hurdles but has previously shown ability on the Flat, most notably when winning a handicap over this trip at Salisbury in April last year. 

Is now only 4lb higher than when winning that race so is still capable of being competitive off that mark and this could be a possible stepping stone to the Cesarewitch. Champion jockey Oisin Murphy is booked for the ride so a big run can be expected.
