TUESDAY HORSE RACING TIPS – BEST BETS FOR THE DAY’S UK RACEMEETINGS
2:15 Yarmouth – Download The QuinnBet App Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-75) 1m6f
SUMMER’S KNIGHT looks hard to oppose dropping in grade and Sir Mark Prescott’s charge can quickly get back to winning ways here.
The Camelot gelding had won twice previously this term, scoring wins at Doncaster and Bath prior to finishing a good second to Tashkhan latest in a higher grade at Haydock where the softer ground may just have caught him out.
He’s back on quicker ground now and returning to a Class 5 contest so may prove a tough nut to crack from just 3lbs higher and having seen the form of his last win since being franked.
2:40 Beverley – Speedy Sprint Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-75) 5f
AVA GO JOE deserves to get his head back in front following a couple of near misses and while the Dragon Pulse gelding remains in this sort of form he looks worth sticking with.
Tim Easterby’s charge was a winner over this course and distance June, scoring by a neck after which he lost little caste in defeat behind Show Yourself back here earlier this month. That winner was well-handicapped and he turned in another solid effort latest at Pontefract on much softer ground behind Ehrmann.
The fourth horse home from that race has won since and while he’s upped 3lbs in the weights he could be capable of better with first-time cheekpieces applied now which may help eke out some improvement.
3:00 Goodwood – Unibet Lennox Stakes (Group 2) Cl1 (3yo+) 7f ITV
CREATIVE FORCE lost no caste in defeat back at six furlongs in the July Cup, travelling strongly in the race but just lacking a change of gear late on on the quicker ground and eventually finishing fifth behind Starman although only beaten two lengths.
Charlie Appleby’s charge had won four on the bounce prior to that effort which include over this trip on soft ground when beating Naval Crown in the Group Three Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot prior to that Group One outing latest.
He could do better now back over a longer trip and with the ground more to his liking although he has won on better ground also; but he ought to be more at home with a bit more cut in the ground and the Dubawi gelding could get back on the scoresheet reunited with James Doyle who is 2-2 on the Godolphin runner.
3:35 Goodwood – Al Shaqab Goodwood Cup Stakes (Group 1) (British Champions Series) Cl1 (3yo+) 2m
Stradivarius has been the dominant stayer in recent seasons, but there’s been a couple of signs in his past few runs that his powers might be on the wane and with the ground coming right for TRUESHAN it may be worth siding with Alan King’s improving stayer to get back to winning ways at the expense of the Gosden star.
The Planteur gelding went from strength to strength last term, winning three of his five starts which included a defeat of Stradivarius in the mud at Ascot to land the Long Distance Cup on British Champions Day and there was nothing wrong with his subsequent reappearance from a break when chasing home Japan in the Ormonde Stakes at Chester in May.
All things considered he ran another sound race in the Northumberland Plate under a welter burden, finishing sixth to Nicholas T and beaten less than four lengths and back on turf on a soft surface he could post a big effort for all he’ll need to be at the top of his game at this level.
3:50 Beverley – Racing TV Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-70) 7½f
LANGHOLM got off the mark for the season when scoring at Carlisle in June and it might be worth chancing on the Dark Angel gelding returning to winning ways here following a relatively quick turnaround.
Michael Dods’ charge has filled the frame on all three subsequent outings, going close at Catterick earlier this month and losing little caste in defeat latest at Ayr where he finished third behind Klopp of The Kop having perhaps gone off too hard.
He battled well in the last furlong but had no real answers having set a strong gallop and there’s a slight worry that this may come soon enough after such a hard race. But if he ‘s none the worse he can give another good account back at this venue where he’s a previous winner
6:55 Perth – Watch On Racing TV Maiden Hurdle (GBB Race) Cl4 (4yo+) 2m4f
John McConnell doesn’t send many runners out of Ireland so MR JACKMAN looks a very interesting contender in this contest and the Flemensfirth gelding can get back on the scoresheet.
A dual-winner in bumpers for Gordon Elliott he had shaped well in two hurdles starts for that handler last autumn prior to his move to this yard where he’s been seen twice more since with those starts punctuated by breaks.
He might have needed his last outing at Downpatrick in July when finishing third to Grangeclare Native and likely to be sharper now he can make his presence felt here to make the long journey worthwhile with a win.
With a first-time tongue-tie applied and Kevin Brogan’s 5lbs claim both likely to work in his favour he looks to hold solid claims here.
7:25 Perth – Heineken UK Handicap Chase Cl3 (4yo+ 0-130) 3m
JUGE ET PARTI was an unpredictable sort when trained by Archie Watson but the Martaline gelding has looked more assured following a switch to James Ewart and he can continue his good spell of form here to land a hat-trick.
He did round off his time with Watson on a high, scoring over hurdles at Fakenham and bouncing back to winning ways at Bangor in May prior to joining this yard where he wasted no time at all in adding to his tally with a course and distance win over O Connell Street.
The handicapper has upped him 5lbs for that which makes life a little tougher upped in grade, but he’s still relatively unexposed as a chaser and no surprise if he were to go well again here.
7:35 Worcester – Appliance Solutions Joanne Baker Mares’ Handicap Hurdle Cl3 (4yo+ 0-125) 2m7f
There’s a suspicion FLORAL BOUQUET might be on the wrong side of the handicapper now over hurdles but the Fair Mix mare can get back on the scoresheet in a race where a case can be made for all five runners.
Jamie Snowden’s charge had won back to back races over fences during May and June and she went close to a hat-trick back over the smaller obstacles at Newton Abbot later in June when beaten into second by The Distant Lady, beaten five lengths.
The Assessor has pushed her up 2lbs for that latest effort which applies a little more pressure and she’s never won off a mark this high and steps into a Class 3 having taken in a Class 4 contest last time out.
Her stamina appeared to give out last time over the longer trip, but this distance will be more to her liking and while she has a little work to do off this mark she could go well and can resume winnng ways.
