TUESDAY BEST RACING BETS – TIPS FOR THE DAY’S FLAT & JUMPS MEETINGS
1:00 Lingfield – Casumo Bet 10 Get 10 Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-75) 1m
The two runs of FORD MADOX BROWN at this venue have yielded a win and runner-up effort and it might be worth chancing on the Oasis Dream gelding to get back to winning ways.
David O’Meara’s charge struck over course and distance on just his second career start last December and he’s shown himself since to be more appreciative of an artificial surface following some lesser runs on turf this term .
Back on the all-weather he was a winner at Wolverhampton and he went close back here in August prior to a lesser run last time out back at Wolverhampton although he may not have been suited by the way the race developed.
This should be run at more of a gallop which will suit and back at this venue he could post an improved effort.
2:00 Lingfield – Download The Casumo App Today Nursery Handicap Cl4 (2yo 0-85) 5f
GIFT HORSE has proven capable of winning as she showed when taking a Wolverhampton maiden in May and the Havana Gold filly has made the frame in three of four starts since including over course and distance.
James Tate’s charge was beaten just one length on that occasion behind Corazon and that form has worked out really well; she was last seen finishing fourth back over course and distance where she wasn’t seen to best effect having been forced to race wide and she only gave way late, fading in the last half furlong behind Nordic Glory who reopposes.
The selection was giving 6lbs on that occasion but has a 4lbs swing this time around so is weighted to reverse the form and she can give a good account here which could see her back on the scoresheet.
2:25 Beverley – Joe Mcloughlin 70th Birthday Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-85) 7½f
BLU BOY was a shade disappointing when last seen finishing last of three runners behind Cosmos Raj at Ripon, but the Muhaarar gelding had won three of his previous six starts and can bounce back here.
Two of those victories came over this course and distance and Ed Bethell’s charge struck the last of those in July when getting the better of Urban War by a neck, getting up close home for the win. That runner-up has filled the same spot twice more so the form doesn’t look too bad and he could still have some scope to improve.
A return to this venue will help as will a stronger pace and while he’s not ideally drawn towards the outside he ought to make his presence felt here with a better run.
3:55 Warwick – Logicor Handicap Chase Cl3 (4yo+ 0-140) 3m1½f
QUARTZ DU RHEU arrives here searching for a hat-trick of victories and Jonjo O’Neill’s charge can oblige punters by landing his three-timer here.
The Konig Turf gelding had been a decent performer over hurdles for Willie Mullins prior to joining this yard and he showed ability over fences last term although has improved since a break and encountering quicker ground to reel off a brace of wins at Worcester in recent weeks, most recently when beating Kabrit by just over one length under this rider.
He was fortunate to win on that occasion, held when the leader saw his saddle slip and lose his rider on the run to the line but he’s only been pushed up 1lb in the weights as a consequence and he could yet have more to come over the larger obstacles with this longer trip unlikely to present an issue.
4:10 Beverley – Happy Birthday Greatest Husband Martin Spencer Handicap Cl6 (3yo+ 0-65) 1m½f
CAPTAIN CORELLI arrives here in good form having finished runner-up twice this term and most recently scoring a first career victory when going in at Carlisle earlier this month, beating Detective by just over one length.
Julie Camacho’s Anjaal gelding was value for that winning margin, taking up the running between the last two furlongs and readily asserting and there could be more to come from him now he’s off the mark.
This longer trip should be no issue and while he’s up 5lbs for that last victory he could make the most of his inside track position to build on that recent victory with the consistent performer likely to give another good account.
5:50 Newcastle – Cazoo Search Drive Smile Handicap (Div II) Cl6 (3yo+ 0-55) 1m2f
SHE’S NO ANGEL is given another chance having ran below her best at Ripon last month and Karl Burke’s charge can do better.
The Libertarian filly had won at Musselburgh two starts ago but didn’t turn in her best effort last time, slowly away having tried to anticipate the start and perhaps not suited by the fast early pace in that contest.
She remains capable of better and a more experienced rider takes over in the saddle for this latest outing so a better showing wouldn’t be out of the question now if she can prove herself back on this surface although her three runs to date on tapeta – two here – haven’t set the heather alight.
This doesn’t look a particularly strong race though and she can get involved if showing her best form.
7:50 Newcastle – Cazoo Nursery Handicap Cl6 (2yo 0-60) 7f
ENRAGED has shown enough in her four outings to date to suggest she’s up to winning races and the Adaay filly can get off the mark at the fifth attempt.
Julie Camacho’s charge had found only one too good at Thirsk in July on her second start, beaten five lengths by Korker who has contested in better races since and he bounced back from a lesser run at Wolverhampton to be beaten less than two lengths despite only finishing fourth back at Thirsk eight days ago.
He steps up to seven furlongs here which could help unlock some improvement although he’ll need to do better on this surface than last time he ran on tapeta; if he does though he looks to hold good claims on form and he ought to make his presence felt here if handling the conditions.
