Horse Racing Tips on Thursday, July 14

There are the five meetings spread across Britain on Thursday, July 14th with the action coming from Chepstow, Leicester, Hamilton, Worcester and Epsom. Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across the cards, which make up our advised Thursday Lucky 15.


Nooo More (2.10 Leicester) 12/1

The 7f Leicester Racecourse Ideal Self-Hire Wedding Venue Handicap looks like an open affair with favourite Clipsham Gold needing to bounce back from an underwhelming run last time out, and therefore at a price, NOOO MORE can be chanced to land the spoils.

Gay Kelleway’s 3yo finished no better than eighth in six starts as a juvenile, but he was gelded over the winter and built on a Lingfield reappearance effort (where he failed to handle the track) when fifth at Yarmouth last month.

Nooo More looked set to fall out of the back of the screen at one stage, yet kept on for pressure to ultimately finish under 6l off the leaders.

On that showing, going back up to 7f looks sure to suit. Nooo More runs off a 4lb lower mark here and has the assistance of Rab Havlin in the saddle for the first time. If the addition of blinkers manages to bring about some improvement from Nooo More it wouldn’t be a shock to see him run well in what looks like a modest affair.

Thursday Lucky 15 Tips. Rab Havlin can get amongst the winners at Leicester on Thursday with Nooo More.

Spacer (3.40 Leicester) 15/2

Sandringham Stakes sixth Fresh Hope is unsurprisingly the favourite for this 7f Chris Waller Handicap, yet she’s now been beaten at odds of 6/1 or shorter in four of five career starts, and therefore at the opposite end of the market, it looks worth taking a chance on SPACER.

Running in the famous green and black silks of David Lowe, this lad was a winner of a Haydock novice last summer, building on a promising debut second to the now 94-rated Oneforthegutter.

Although Spacer has failed to add to his tally in two starts this campaign, he has run in handicaps won by some progressive sorts in Outgate and Jimi Hendrix, both horses who’ve gone in again since.

On both running style and pedigree dropping back to 7f looks a likely plus for Spacer, and he’s been gelded since last seen. A mark of 79 is surely workable for Spacer on the pick of his form, and therefore he can be taken to get back to winning ways here.


Creek Harbour (4.10 Leicester) 11/2

The first division of Leicester’s 6f Follow @LeicesterRaces On Twitter For News Classified Stakes sees Lethal Angel back in action after an impressive Brighton success nine days ago, but the 7yo has a hefty enough weight of 9st 11lb to carry as a result and might struggle to concede 9lb (when factoring in rider’s claim) to CREEK HARBOUR, officially rated 6lb superior to the favourite.

Adrian Wintle’s 7yo put up his best performance of 2022 when fourth, beaten just over a length, at Chepstow last time out.

Creek Harbour reverts to classified stakes company on the back of that showing, and the only previous time he was seen at this level he ran out a comfortable 3l winner. That suggests returning to this company on the back of a good run, Creek Harbour rates the one to be with here.

Meechlands Magic (7.55 Worcester) 10/1

Mr Woody is bound to be popular for Worcester’s 2m7f At The Races App Expert Tips Handicap Hurdle on the back of his impressive Ffos Las success last month, but a record of 0-7 over hurdles suggests that he might not be one to be taking short prices about, and with that in mind, MEECHLANDS MAGIC is preferred.

This 6yo can be forgiven for a failure to complete on handicap debut, where he endured a facial injury after an error at the first flight, and Meechlands Magic had a confidence-boosting round at Ffos Las last time.

Debra Hamer’s charge was not done with in the battle for second there (behind an odds-on hot pot) when a mistake at the final flight cost him two places on the run-in.

8lb out of the weights there, Meechlands Magic runs off his correct mark today and being from a family of stayers (full-brother and stablemate to a dual course and distance winner) this step back up in trip looks certain to suit.
