Completing the day’s quintet of fixtures there is a meeting over the sticks with jumps racing action from Newton Abbot and we’ve looked over all five of the day’s racecards to pick out our Tuesday horse racing best bets.
TUESDAY HORSE RACING BEST BETS – TIPS FOR THE DAY’S UK RACEMEETINGS
1:45 Beverley – Crawford Society Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-70) 7½f
PARTY REBEL has shown enough to suggest he can pick up a race and Mark Johnston’s charge built on a fair return effort at Carlisle in May to find only one too good there last Monday, run down late and losing out by a head from Tellmeyourstory.
The front two had pulled four lengths clear of the rest and a repeat of that effort from the same mark could see the Excelebration filly going on better and opening her win account.
She does have an outside draw to contend with which will make life a little tougher here, but she’s open to further improvement and could go close.
2:10 Brighton – Follow @AtTheRaces On Twitter Handicap Cl6 (3yo+ 0-55) 1m
ALMADRINA’s form figures don’t make for inspiring reading but the Australia filly is likely capable of better having could be worth chancing to come on for her latest sixth at Lingfield earlier in the month.
George Boughey’s charge was slow to leave the stalls on that occasion but she caught the eye moving into contention briefly before fading and perhaps lack of a run and the longer trip proved factors against her late on.
She should strip fitter for that effort and the return to one mile can bring about better; while if she can break on terms then she could get competitive and far less exposed than most of this field she could be worth an interest to find some improvement with the handicapper also easing her 2lbs in the weights.
4:20 Ayr – Ayrshire Cancer Support Handicap (For the Winton Cup) Cl4 (4yo+ 0-80) 1m5f
GREENGAGE has been thriving this term back on turf following a fruitful spell on the all-weather over the winter, reeling off a trio of wins which include twice here and the Choisir mare ran better than the bare result under a penalty when finishing third to Bollin Joan at York latest.
Tristan Davidson’s charge was beaten less than one length on that occasion despite missing the break and racing further back than ideal before finishing off well and she was closing on the winner at the line.
She’s only 1lb higher in the weights this time around and ought to go close with a repeat of that effort assuming there’s a decent pace for her to aim at. There’s a chance this may develop tactically with no obvious pace angle, but she looks worth chancing to get back on the winning trail.
7:00 Newbury – BetVictor Handicap Cl5 (3yo 0-75) 7f
TYPICAL MAN looks worth siding with to get back on the scoresheet having struck readily at Doncaster in the mud last month and the Territories gelding can better his latest fifth at Windsor.
Ian Williams’ charge was only beaten three lengths on that occasion behind Epidemic where he was perhaps unsuited by the strong pace on the quicker ground in that contest; the form though looks very fair with the third winning next time.
Back on a more suitable surface he can do better here and with William Buick in the saddle there could be more to come from the three-year old who can bounce back to winning ways.
7:45 Newton Abbot – Get Daily Tips On attheraces.com Handicap Chase Cl3 (5yo+ 0-140) 2m5f
PILBARA won twice over hurdles last term for Emmet Mullins and rounded off his time with that handler with a runner-up effort over the larger obstacles at Killarney, beaten four lengths by Cavalry Master.
The Tiger Groom gelding has since joined forces with Sue Smith and with the form of his last run in Ireland looking solid given both the winner, fourth and fifth horses have all struck since he could be worth chancing to make a winning debut for his new yard where he’s only 7lbs higher than when posting that silver medal finish.
This looks a fair introduction on his first run for Sue Smith and he can make it a winning one given he’s still fairly unexposed as a chaser and no surprise if he were to get involved here.
