Sunday’s 3,104/1 Lucky 15 – Our E/W Lucky 15 Picks For 28th August

Horse Racing Tips on Sunday, August 28

There are just three meetings spread in England on Sunday, August 28th, but there’s some good quality racing to look forward to.

Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across the cards, which make up our advised Saturday Lucky 15.

*Odds correct at time of posting – 2:50pm Saturday 27th August*

Indian Creak (1.50 Goodwood) – 6/1

First up we’re taking a chance with Mick Channon’s INDIAN CREAK. He may have disappointed in the last two races but he’s more than capable of making his presence felt in this. 

In his last nine races he’s won one and placed in four, working out as a 55% strike-rate of finishing in at least the places. The pick of his form this year came back in June, when he made all to run out an impressive winner of the Sprint Series Handicap at Windsor. If jockey David Probert races him prominently in this, we expect him to finish in the places at a minimum. The ground won’t be an issue, having won on good to firm, good and soft ground in the past. 

Many A Star heads the betting but he’s far from a dead cert. He finished just over four lengths ahead of our selection when they last came up against each other over C&D back in April, but Indian Creak never really got going in that race, and they meet again here with our selection on 4lb better terms. None of the others look to have as good a chance as our selection and we’re hopeful of starting the day with a winner!

Commonsensical (2.15 Yarmouth) – 15/2

This looks a tricky affair, but Hugo Palmer’s COMMONSENSICAL has been in fantastic form for the majority of this season and can gain a third win of the year here at what we feel is cracking odds.

From his five races this year, he’s won two and came runner-up in two, with the most recent run being the only poor run he’s had. The last two runs have come over 1m 4f, and the step back down to 1m 2f is the right move, with his record over the trip reading 20312 (60% place-rate). 

Young jockey Harry Davies takes off a valuable 3lb, and it’s difficult to see him not finishing in the places at least. The lightly raced Rogue Bear and Chesterfield Cup runner-up Brilliant Light will likely be his biggest dangers.

Beautiful Aisling (3.15 Beverley) – 5/1

Russet Gold will take some beating if returning in the same form of his comfortable victory at Ripon, but he will face some quality opposition here, none more so than BEAUTIFUL AISLING

Simon & Ed Crisford’s filly had gone close in her first two races, before connections deemed her worthy of a try in Group company, in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot. She was never a danger in that race, but back in calmer waters next time out she was pushed out for a cosy victory over C&D, and a repeat of that performance will see her go extremely close in this. 

She beat Greenroad comfortably that day, and she is weighted to finish much closer this time around. A Beautiful Aisling/Russet Gold/Greenroad tricast could be worth a small play, but for win only purposes we’re backing Beautiful Aisling to follow up and land a quickfire C&D double.

Luna Magic (4.45 Goodwood) – 10/3

Our final lucky 15 selection comes in the final race on the Goodwood card and it’s Archie Watson’s LUNA MAGIC, who should take all the beating. The mare has won her last two races and we see no reason for her not to complete the hat-trick on Sunday.

It was just over a week ago when she stayed on strongly to win at Salisbury, and a repeat of that performance should be enough to win again. She won this race last year off a 6lb higher mark, and she arrives here in top form, so she rates as one of the better bets of the day.

With top amateur jockey Brodie Hampson on board, she can steer Luna Magic to a well-deserved hat-trick. The biggest danger could come from Sir Plato, who Luna Magic beat at Salisbury last week and she can follow the selection home again.
