TIPS FOR TUESDAY’S RACING 21 JULY – STRATFORD, PERTH, CHEPSTOW & SANDOWN
1:05 Chepstow – Toalsbet Dial-A-Bet 028 90 321 721 Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-75) 5f
BAL MAL has been given a breather since reeling off a quick hat-trick last month, but the The Wow Signal gelding can quickly pick up where he left off three weeks ago.
John Quinn’s charge went into the lockdown on the back of a win at Wolverhampton, and he subsequently built on an encouraging reappearance at Chelmsford to strike for the first time on turf with a ready defeat of Mecca’s Hot Steps at Beverley.
He has since added further wins at Redcar and Musselburgh under a double-penalty and this rider, scoring latterly by three-parts of a length from Angels Faces readily and there could be more to come from him despite this new mark demanding a shade more and forcing him up a class where he takes on older horses now.
Nevertheless, he ought to run well and if remaining in similar form as prior to his short break then he ought to go close one more and he can collect another win.
1:55 Stratford – RSA Syndicates You Can Trust Novices’ Hurdle (GBB Race) Cl4 (4yo+) 2m2½f
GAOT won a French bumper prior to joining Harry Fry and the Crillon filly could be worth siding with to get off the mark at the third attempt having shaped with some promise back from a break at this venue earlier in the month.
Only sixth on her hurdling debut at Wetherby last November, she improved to finish a good third here behind Czech Her Out, beaten around seven lengths although it is possible she just needed the outing. She wore a hood that day which is retained and she could progress on the back of that first outing of the campaign.
Bred to be useful she’s in very good hands and can show some further improvement over this longer trip to open her win account in a fairly ordinary race where she receives weight all round from this field of rivals
6:40 Sandown – Telegraph Hill Handicap Cl3 (3yo 0-95) 1m2f
ENEMY can get back on track having ran on well for fourth in the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot and the Muhaarar colt could be suited by this stiffer test on that evidence.
John Gosden’s charge was an Ascot winner on debut, beating Law Of Peace by a neck and he got to within three-parts of a length behind Mister Snowdon at Yarmouth on his return from nine months off the track.
That was admittedly a slightly disappointing effort; but he bounced back at Royal Ascot with a much better run and a repeat of that outing might be good enough here while that Britannia form is working out quite well.
Likely to have more improvement to come over this longer trip he can make his presence felt and he should go close.
6:55 Perth – Scottish Enterprise Supports Perth Racecourse Handicap Hurdle Cl4 (3yo+ 0-120) 2m
PURPLE KING started off well for Dr Richard Newland last term following his switch from France and the Lope De Vega gelding can get back to winning ways here.
He showed progressive form last term, winning twice with scores at Stratford and over course and distance last July; he then bounced back from a lesser run at Wincanton with a pair of solid runs in defeat, finishing fourth when last seen behind Scaramanga in a stronger race than this back at the Somerset track in October where the softer ground maybe didn’t help his chance.
Following on, he ran well first time up last term so a break might not prove a negative on his reappearance and he remains with scope from this mark to do better still. A quicker surface is no issue also and he looks set for a big run with Sam Twiston-Davies in the plate.
The yard has a 33% strike-rate with its’ runners here, while the trainer/jockey combination often does well when teaming up and their record could be enhanced here.
