TUESDAY HORSE RACING BEST BETS – TIPS FOR BEVERLEY, KEMPTON & FONTWELL
2:00 Beverley – Churchill Tyres Handicap Cl4 (4yo+ 0-85) 5f
PRINCESS POWER emerged from a spell in the doldrums to finish a good third to Pop Dancer at Sandown last month and Nigel Tinkler’s charge hinted subsequently that she was set to get back to winning ways when finding only one too good latest at Ascot behind Blue De Vega.
The Slade Power filly was beaten just under two lengths on that last occasion, staying on well but no match for the winner. She’s only been raised 1lb for that effort and a repeat might be good enough to see her go one better and get back on the scoresheet.
She has won from higher marks than this in the past and holds a course and distance success to her name so every chance she can make her presence felt again returning to this venue.
2:30 Beverley – Lund Nursery Handicap Cl5 (2yo 0-75) 7½f
BEECHWOOD EMILY was very much in need of the experience when finishing fourth on her debut at Redcar in June, but Keith Dalgleish’s charge improved for the run when crossing the line in third on her next outing on the all-weather at Newcastle.
The Dark Angel colt still looked a bit rough around the edges and possibly didn’t entirely handle the surface, eventually crossing the line four lengths behind the winner Gift List. She might be worth chancing then back on turf and switching to the handicap ranks where a mark of 64 might prove lenient given the form of her debut run has worked out quite well.
The winner of that debut has since contested in Group company and won a Listed race last weekend, while the third has also won since. There may be more to come from her now sent handicapping and she can give a good account of herself in this contest.
2:45 Fontwell – Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap Hurdle (GBB Race) Cl2 (3yo+) 2m3f
GATEWAY TO EUROPE won twice last term of which one came over course and distance last August when beating Melody Of Scotland.
Neil King’s charge acquitted himself well in defeat subsequently and the Trans Island gelding has bettered his finishing position with each run this term, latterly getting to within a half-length of Percy over a shorter trip at Uttoxeter earlier this month.
Possibly just stretched by the longer trip the time before – form has worked out quite well – he will find today’s yardage very much to his liking and he can defy a 2lbs rise in the weights for his recent run to get back on the scoresheet here under Bryony Frost.
3:45 Fontwell – Download The At The Races App Handicap Chase Cl4 (4yo+ 0-120) 2m3½f
ARTHUR’S SIXPENCE has looked a much improved chaser following wind surgery and the application of a tongue-tie, winning both starts this term and there’s reason to suspect Kim Bailey’s charge may not be finished quite yet.
The Vinnie Roe gelding has won at Uttoxeter and Market Rasen latterly, scoring both wins by only narrow margins so he could yet be holding a secret or two from the assessor and his 110 rating could remain very fair.
With the potential to improve further as a chaser after just four starts over the larger obstacles he should continue to make his presence felt and he can strike another win here to bring up his hat-trick.
6:00 Kempton – Unibet Casino Deposit £10 Get £40 Bonus Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-85) 6f
FRESH has improved with every start, finding only one too good on just his third career run at Lingfield last month behind Starman.
James Fanshawe’s charge was only beaten a neck on that occasion having finished a good fourth behind Lexington Dash the time before in a decent Newmarket race. The winner and third from that race have both won since, as has the winner of his last outing where the Bated Breath colt might not have been entirely suited by the slow pace.
Now tried in a handicap and with more of a likelihood of a stronger pace, an initial mark of 79 looks very fair and it would be no surprise if he proved up to the task of defying this rating.
