TUESDAY HORSE RACING TIPS – BEST BETS AT REDCAR, EXETER, SOUTHWELL & NEWCASTLE
1:10 Redcar – #everypoppycounts Handicap (Div I) Cl6 (3yo+ 0-65) 1m
None of these can be described as reliable so it might be worth siding with JEWEL MAKER who has made the frame in two of his last three outings and the Invincible Spirit gelding can go close.
Tim Easterby’s charge has just one win to his name which came at Cork when trained by Dermot Weld in Ireland; that success gave him a rating of 87 but he’s not run to anything near that level since and his mark continues to slide.
His latest outing saw him finish three lengths’ fourth behind Sassoon in heavy ground at Ayr and he handles these conditions well with a number of in-the-frame efforts in testing conditions since joining this yard last autumn. He’s been eased another 1lb in the ratings for that last run and this extra furlong could be a catalyst for better so he might be capable of snapping his losing streak in a weak race.
1:25 Exeter – Kenn Novices’ Hurdle (GBB Race) (Div II) Cl3 (4yo+) 2m5½f
NOBLE BEHEST improved for the stiffer test of stamina on his return to hurdles back in August, finding only one too good in Templepark; Ian Williams’ charge subsequently got off the mark next time over the same course and distance and might be able to follow up here.
The Sir Percy gelding was a useful all-weather performer on the flat, winning his fair share of races which include three on the bounce around the turn of the year and there could be more to come from him in this sphere where’s he’s lightly raced over hurdles.
Having appeared to win a shade cosily latest he has seen that form franked by the runner-up winning next time and he could be capable of defying his penalty to double his winning tally over hurdles.
2:25 Exeter – Haldon Gold Cup (A Limited Handicap Chase) (Grade 2) (GBB Race) Cl1 (4yo+) 2m1½f
Several in-form yards sent out runners in this contest and it might be worth chancing Dan Skelton’s NOT THAT FUISSE to get back on the winning trail having ran with credit in defeat at Cheltenham ten days ago.
Useful over hurdles with three wins to his name the Fuisse gelding was unable to open his account over the larger obstacles last term although he ran to a good level in making the frame in three of his five starts including behind Al Dancer and Torpillo.
Off the mark at the first attempt this season with a win at Perth in September he ran well in defeat behind Southfield Stone at Cheltenham latest, eventually finishing third of the four runners and he could benefit from the application of cheekpieces for the first time dropping back to two miles and returning to the handicap ranks.
Racing from a relative featherweight in comparison to his rivals he probably does need a shade more improvement which the headgear could deliver and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see him running well for his in-form yard.
2:33 Southwell – Betway Casino Handicap Cl6 (3yo+ 0-65) 6f
GLOBAL HUMOR has been holding his form well this term, making the frame in all of his runs following his reappearance seventh at Newcastle back in June and Jim Goldie’s charge can get back to winning ways.
A course and distance winner back in February the Distorted Humor returned to the winners’ enclosure at Wolverhampton in August and backed up that performance with successive placed efforts at that venue, latterly finishing a head third behind Tomshalfbrother where he ran on well having not been ideally placed following a slow start.
He’s only 1lb higher here but he could be worth siding with to get back on the scoresheet with Oisin Murphy taking over and in a race where a few have a question to answer he might prove the most solid option.
6:15 Newcastle – Ladbrokes Watch Racing Online For Free Nursery Handicap Cl4 (2yo 0-85) 5f
FIGHTER PILOT has shown some ability in his two starts to date where he has finished third both times including once on this surface and Kevin Ryan’s Kodiac colt can get off the mark now tackling handicaps.
Having raced green on his debut when finishing third to Fivethousandtoone over six furlongs here, he showed improved form to get to within two lengths of Inver Park at Nottingham on his latest run where he might not have been best suited by the softer ground and emphasis on stamina.
It was still a decent effort and he had two subsequent winners behind him that day. The drop to five furlongs for this outing may be of benefit and he could improve now where his initial mark of 73 on his handicap bow looks very workable and he can take advantage.
