TUESDAY RACING BEST BETS – TIPS FOR SOUTHWELL, LINGFIELD, NEWCASTLE & WOLVERHAMPTON
12:50 Lingfield – Heart Racing Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle (GBB Race) Cl4 (3yo+) 2m
ANYTHINGFORLOVE is forgiven her recent hurdles debut at Uttoxeter where she finished fourth, but considering her rider had tack issues for most of the way round it was perhaps a better effort than it appears at face value and with a bit more luck the Black Sam Bellamy mare can get back to winning ways.
Jamie Snowden’s charge had won both her starts in bumpers previously and could still do better as a hurdler where she’s much less exposed than the majority of her rivals in this contest.
That form might prove fair in time and there’s likely more to come where with a bit more luck this time around she can make amends for last time’s mishap with a return to the scoresheet in what looks a winnable contest.
1:00 Southwell – Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase (GBB Race) Cl3 (4yo+ 0-125) 2m
GLAJOU represents powerful connections and can get off the mark for Paul Nicholls in this contest.
The Network gelding placed over hurdles in France when trained by Emmanuel Clayeux and showed something to work on on his hurdles debut at Taunton back in April. He subsequently found only one too good on his reappearance at Newton Abbot but hinted at better to come when switched to chasing for his last outing at Chepstow.
There he finished just over two lengths’ fourth behind Anemoi, leading over the last but unable to sustain his effort to the line and he could do better on this less testing surface.
He travelled and jumped well in the main on that occasion and the application of cheekpieces now could yield further improvement so it wouldn’t come as a huge shock to see him go close here for a yard that has a very good record with its’ runners at this venue.
1:50 Lingfield – Sky Sports Racing HD Virgin 535 Handicap Chase Cl5 (4yo+ 0-105) 2m7½f
HANG TOUGH lived up to his name when making a winning switch to chasing over this course and distance three weeks ago, making a late mistake but battling on gamely to register a half-length defeat of Don Herbager.
Jonjo O’Neill’s Geordieland gelding had also won over hurdles last term, scoring at Warwick in heavy ground and he is clearly well suited by testing conditions given his win here last time also came in the mud.
He’s been raised 7lbs in the weights following that win which will demand more, but he can build on that initial experience of the larger obstacles where there’s likely plenty more to come and he can double up here a three weeks’ break is time enough between runs given he had a hard race last time.
If none the worse then he ought to go well again and every chance he can make it 2-2 over fences.
2:32 Southwell – Free Tips Daily On attheraces.com Handicap Hurdle Cl4 (4yo+ 0-120) 3m½f
PEACHEY is still unexposed as a hurdler and could yet have more to offer having found only one too good latest at Uttoxeter.
That was just his third run over hurdles and came on the back of an earlier Stratford fall, but he shaped as if a stiffer test might suit and this step up to three miles could unlock further improvement in the Robin Des Champs gelding.
Beaten six lengths last time behind a useful looking prospect he switches now to handicapping where a mark of 118 might underestimate him and with this extra yardage another possible source of progression he should make his presence felt in this contest where he can land a breakthrough first success.
3:40 Newcastle – Bombardier “March To Your Own Drum” Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-70) 1m
GREAT COLACI has been on good terms with himself in recent starts, winning two of his last three outings and Gillian Boanas’ charge can strike again here.
The Sulamani gelding goes well here with six wins and six places to his name from 20 runs and he’s 2-5 over course and distance; the latest of those wins came here last month when beating Pacino by a half-length and that form has since been boosted by the third winning next time out.
The runner-up has also done little harm to the form with another in-the-frame effort and a 4lbs rise remains workable in his current vein of good form so he can continue to give a good account and ought to remain competitive.
4:00 Wolverhampton – Play 4 To Win At Betway Handicap (Div I) Cl6 (3yo+ 0-65) 6f
MO HENRY has placed in both starts following a lengthy absence where the Monsieur Bond gelding was off the track for more than two years and Adrian Keatley’s charge could be worth chancing to get back on the scoresheet.
Last successful at Naas back in the summer of 2017 from a higher rating than this, he returned to action following 814 days away from the track with a short-head defeat behind Continental at Newcastle where he just lost out on the nod and that form has seen the fourth, fifth and seventh horses all win since.
He proved that return to action to be no fluke when finishing third next time, beaten just over one length behind I Know How when claimer ridden and probably given too much to do under his inexperienced jockey.
However he has stronger handling return to the saddle for this latest outing where reapplied blinkers might help focus him and he can go close off the same mark as last time which is 7lbs below his last successful rating.
5:15 Newcastle – Betway Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-75) 6f
TATHMEEN might have been undone by the draw when last seen racing over the minimum trip where he eventually beat only one home; but he had hit the crossbar in his two previous runs and the Exceed and Excel gelding can bounce back.
Anthony Brittain’s charge has won over this course five times in the past, also making the frame three times and the hold-up performer couldn’t have been further away from the pace last time which wouldn’t have suited and he can do better this time around with more pace around him.
The return to six furlongs should also see him in a better light and the handicapper has dropped him 1lb so he could be worth chancing to better than he showed latest and no surprise if he were to bounce back with a better effort.
6:30 Wolverhampton – Bombardier “March To Your Own Drum” Handicap Cl3 (3yo+ 0-90) 1m½f
MASKED IDENTITY ran better than his result last time suggests and the Intello gelding can get back on the scoresheet with this slightly stiffer test unlikely to present a problem.
Shaun Keightley’s charge scored his last win at Newmarket back in July, but he’s won here in the past and has largely run well in defeat this campaign aside from his win at Flat HQ. He’s also twice finished runner-up this term at Kempton and back at Newmarket and he gave a very good account of himself last time with a keeping on third having been unable to match the front pair for finishing speed.
This extra half-furlong could suit and he’s been dropped 1lb in the ratings while facing less competition for the lead so can remain competitive and he should give another good account of himself in a winnable race where most of his rivals arrive on the back of poor runs last time.
