Horse Racing tips
We’ve been in good form this week and we’re aiming to continue the week with a bang with our best bets from the meetings at Salisbury, Hamilton and Bath on Thursday.
So check out today’s horse racing tips and don’t forget to click the links to take advantage of the best price on offer.
QUEEN (2.20 Salisbury, 1m2f Listed)
Finished second to subsequent Group 2 Royal Ascot winner Fanny Logan in a Group 3 over this trip at Newmarket last season and that form reads well in the context of this race.
Has been running over trips short of her optimum in France this year and the European raider looks to be ideally suited by a return to this distance.
Trainer Pia Brandt has been in good form in France in recent weeks, with a 20 per cent strike-rate and jockey James Doyle should get a good ride here.
GHAZIYAH (2.50 Salisbury, 1m4f handicap)
Not for the first time shaped as if this would be her best trip when staying on after being outpaced to finish fourth over 1m2f at Glorious Goodwood last time.
Bred to stay this trip being by a daughter of Galileo and the form of her runner-up finish at Newmarket on her final start last season looks good.
Should be given the chance to prove this is her trip.
MODAKHAR (3.40 Hamilton, 1m1f handicap)
This horse is likely to be a huge outsider but we thought he ran really well last time on his first start for trainer Katie Scott.
On that occasion he was slowly away over 1m at this course before making eyecatching late headway to challenge before fading late on.
Wears blinkers for the first time here, which should hopefully sharpen him up enough to hold a better position in the early stages.
MR TYRRELL (4.25 Bath, 1m handicap)
Ground likely to be firm at Bath and the only time Mr Tyrrell ran on firm ground at Bath, he won by six lengths.
That win came off a mark of 80, which is 4lb higher than the rating he runs off today, which means he’s undoubtedly well handicapped and he’s shown enough on a couple of occasions since racing resumed to suggest he’s still capable of winning races.
