TUESDAY HORSE RACING BEST BETS – UK RACING TIPS FOR THE DAY’S FIVE MEETINGS
12:30 Lingfield – Read Hollie Doyle’s Column On attheraces.com Handicap Cl4 (4yo+ 0-80) 1m
FLYING WEST was a course and distance winner on her racecourse debut last term and she later proved progressive in adding to her tally with further victories at Wolverhampton and Yarmouth before being denied a hat-trick at Nottingham on her final run of the campaign.
James Fanshawe’s charge ran better than the bare result following a break at Kempton last month, finishing sixth to Fantasy Believer but beaten less than three lengths and she’s entitled to strip fitter for that return to action.
She’s been eased 1lb in the ratings following that run and the return of Tom Marquand in the saddle – 2-3 when combining – augurs well for her chances. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see her resume progress now she’s had a run and she can quickly get back on the scoresheet.
1:45 Ayr – Every Race Live On Racing TV Handicap Hurdle Cl5 (4yo+ 0-105) 2m4½f
TICO TIMES showed improved form over fences in the wake of a wind operation, scoring back-to-back wins at Sedgefield and Carlisle before seeing his hat-trick attempt thwarted back at Sedgefield latest where he was beaten the thick end of thirty lengths by Road Warrior.
That was a higher class of race however and he might have been held back by his revised rating on that occasion; but he turns out here back over the smaller obstacles where he can race from a lower mark and the Arcadio gelding could bounce back.
Dianne Sayer’s charge could go close here if translating his improved form over fences back over hurdles and this doesn’t look a particularly strong contest so he can make his presence felt.
2:30 Lingfield – Free Tips Daily On attheraces.com Handicap Cl4 (4yo+ 0-80) 6f
SWISS PRIDE has been on good terms with himself of late, winning three of his last four starts – all over course and distance – and Roger Teal’s charge can strike again to bring up a hat-trick of victories.
The Swiss Spirit gelding won a shade cosily last time under this rider where Cappananty Con was back in third; he’s only 4lbs higher in the weights here and his course and distance record of five wins and three places from ten runs here should see him continue to remain competitive.
Given his current spell of good form he could prove a tough nut to crack here and no surprise if he were to collect another victory to continue his hot streak.
4:05 Ayr – Bet At racingtv.com Handicap Chase Cl4 (5yo+ 0-120) 2m4½f
The application of a visor and racing on better ground has certainly drawn a level of improvement out of ROXBORO ROAD and Ben Haslam’s charge can continue his winning spree here.
Formerly trained in Ireland the Oscar gelding has won his last three starts over fences and hurdles latterly and in his current form he looks worth sticking with to register another victory back over the larger obstacles.
His last chase win came at Wetherby where he was always up with the pace and after taking up the lead two out there was only one winner as he readily drew clear to score by six lengths from Maid O’Malley.
Having then struck over hurdles he returns to chasing here where he’s been hit hard with a 14lbs rise for those recent victories; but given the manner of his last chase success he could be up to defying this mark and he can strike another win while in this vein of form.
4:25 Fakenham – Snellings Norfolk National Handicap Chase (Fakenham Double Up Bonus Race) Cl3 (5yo+ 0-125) 3m5f
STRICTLYADANCER raced just three times in 2020, winning either side of a ten-month absence which included here last January and at Exeter prior to chasing home the reopposing Friends Don’t Ask over this course and distance back in November.
Christian Williams’ charge rounded off last campaign with a creditable third to Crossley Tender at Exeter before shaping well on the back of wind surgery at Haydock latest where he finished fourth behind Innisfree Lad.
He had travelled well for a way in that contest before making a bad mistake which knocked the stuffing from him and he didn’t recover; but this is easier and Jack Tudor returns to the saddle where his 3lbs claim is a big plus to his chances of a return to winning ways assuming he sees out this longer trip.
5:15 Southwell – #banthebeigebuffet Handicap Chase Cl4 (5yo+ 0-115) 2m4½f
Lightly-raced STARJAC showed fair form over hurdles last term and might be worth chancing to improve on his chase efforts to date.
The Linda’s Lad gelding is yet to get off the mark but he has posted a number of solid runs in defeat over the smaller obstacles and shaped with some promise back from almost two years off when switched to chasing at Stratford in March.
Peter Webber’s charge was entitled to have needed that run and he stepped up markedly for the outing to find only one too good back there latest where he was beaten only one length by Rob The Getaway where he wasn’t helped by a late mistake.
He’s only 2lbs higher here and the third horse home did little harm to the form next time out so he can remain competitive although his jumping may need to improve if he’s to get off the mark.
7:00 Wolverhampton – Free Betting @ freebetting.co.uk Handicap Cl6 (3yo 0-60) 5f
TOPLIGHT got off the mark over this course and distance back in November and it might be worth siding with Chelsea Banham’s charge to repeat the dose back at this track and yardage.
The Bated Breath gelding posted a career best effort to run out a comfortable winner over Red Walls before floundering on the fibresand next time and not for the first time shaped as if six furlongs stretched her when disappointing here following a break in February.
She was beaten ten lengths on that occasion but bounced back returned to the minimum trip at Lingfield in March, finishing third to Hotalena where he may have been made too much use of in front.
Now eased 2lbs and with cheekpieces applied for the first time he could do better and he wouldn’t need to find much improvement to go close.
