Sunday Market Rasen placepot tips – Placepot selections & permutation
Brian Healy gives his Sunday Market Rasen placepot tips for the day’s feature meeting.
We head to Market Rasen on Sunday for the day’s feature meeting where we’re hoping to win big for a small stake by playing the Tote Placepot at the main Sunday feature fixture.
To play the Tote Placepot, simply pick one or more horses in each of the first six races to make the frame according to the number of runners in the race.
The beauty of the Tote Placepot is that selections don’t have to win the race; but if they finish in the places in each of the six races then a big slice of the winning pie could be waiting! Our Tote Placepot tips for Sunday are below.
SUNDAY MARKET RASEN PLACEPOT TIPS
2.20 Market Rasen – Race 1: (2) Dusty’s Choice
2.50 Market Rasen – Race 2: (4) Hear The Chimes, (5) Diamond Rose

To work out stakes, simply multiply the number of selections in each race together. Remember though, minimum cost per line is 10p and a minimum of £1 total needs to be staked.
In addition to the Tote Placepot, punters can also bet Tote singles and we’ve picked out a couple of runners in our Placepot perm who could post big runs in their respective races.
Bear in mind that The Tote will match the winners’ starting price if it returns bigger than the declared single win dividend so punters are guaranteed to get the best value.
2.20 Market Rasen – Race One
(2) DUSTY’S CHOICE – Won a bumper contest at Ayr back in October but cut little ice behind Israel Champ when thrust into a Listed contest at Cheltnenham for his next start.
John Quinn’s Elusive Pimpernel gelding however shaped with promise on his hurdles debut, finishing third at Newcastle in January and he can progress for that experience so can make his presence felt although he’ll do well to upset the favourite.
(Bet Dusty’s Choice as a win single with The Tote and if the SP is bigger than the Tote win dividend, get paid out at SP!)
2.50 Market Rasen – Race Two
(4) HEAR THE CHIMES – Last win came at Huntingdon last February but went off the boil soon after and was given a break following a disappointing run at Ludlow in May.
He looked in need of the run on his reappearance at Hereford in November and might still have been rusty when finishing fourth next time at Sedgefield following another couple of months off. He’s been dropped 2lbs since that last run and although he’s been given another break he ought to prove competitive here.
(5) DIAMOND ROSE – Dual-winning hurdler last term, scoring wins at Ludlow and here before finishing his season with a solid third to Theatre Act over a longer trip.
The Sagamix mare shaped as if amiss on her return at Huntingdon and has been given another break. However she looks worth a chance to do better returning from her absence back at this venue
3.25 Market Rasen – Race Three
(1) DUNDRUM WOOD – Placed in an Irish point-to-point won by Fury Road and has shown a decent amount of ability over hurdles, winning here back in November. Should be sharper for his latest run at Fakenham and could find improvement now tackling a handicap where a mark of 122 leaves him with scope to do better.
(Bet Dundrum Wood as a win single with The Tote and if the SP is bigger than the Tote win dividend, get paid out at SP!)
(7) WHO’S THE BOSS – Has shaped with some ability over hurdles without seriously threatening the judge. However she’s shown enough to suggest she can win races and she ought to continue to give a good account.
The return to a longer trip could prove a good move, and while she probably needs a shade more to defy this mark she can get involved in the finish.
3.55 Market Rasen – Race Four
(1) THOMAS TODD – A winner at Fakenham in October last year and has backed it up with successive efforts in the frame, including when third to Cap Du Nord latest.
Laura Morgan’s charge finished ahead of a subsequent winner last time and he’s been dropped 1lb since; while his rider’s claim leaves him feasibly weighted to go well.
(2) COMPADRE – Won twice over fences last term over course and distance but has struggled since over longer trips.
However, he drops in class back over fences here and dropping to a more suitable distance following wind surgery he could bounce back from a mark which could prove workable.
4.30 Market Rasen – Race Five
(2) HIGH NOON – Showed only fair form for Emma Lavelle but has shown up better since switched to chasing, winning at Musselburgh in January on his third start for Micky Hammond.
The Westerner gelding might have been stretched by three miles latest back at the Scottish track but could bounce back over this lesser trip.
(7) PICKNICK PARK – had been in fair form over fences, making the frame on several occasions but disappointed at Huntingdon in February, pulled up after making several mistakes.
The Sulamani gelding bounced back however to win readily over course and distance when last seen and he could follow up here raised 7lbs in the weights. This is tougher, but having placed off similar marks previously he should remain competitive.
(Bet Picknick Park as a win single with The Tote and if the SP is bigger than the Tote win dividend, get paid out at SP!)
5.00 Market Rasen – Race Six
(3) PLAYA BLANCA – Won at Huntingdon last March and bounced back to winning form on his second run following wind surgery at Warwick latest, beating Twycross Warrior by five lengths.
Seamus Mullins’ charge is turned out quickly but escapes a penalty and can race from the same mark as when posting that last run so could be worth keeping onside to follow up that success here with Ben Jones able to utilise his claim this time around.
He ought to be involved with a repeat of that last effort and should go close.
