TUESDAY RACING BEST BETS & TIPS – RACING TIPS FOR THE DAY’S UK FIXTURES
1:35 Salisbury – MansionBet Proud To Support British Racing Handicap Cl6 (3yo 0-65) 6f
LEXINGTON LIBERTY has shown enough in a handful of starts to date that she can win a race and Richard Hannon’s charge can get off the mark here.
The Dandy Man filly has showm progressive form this term on turf, finishing third on her handicap debut at Carlisle in May on ground possibly too soft; but she improved on that run latest to find only Tequila Royale too strong over this trip at Catterick in a maiden contest.
The form of her Carlisle third has been boosted and back in a handicap here she might be able to go one better from a workable mark with Pat Dobbs preferring her over the yard’s other runner.
2:00 Southwell – Free Racecourse Entry With Golf Membership Handicap Chase Cl4 (5yo+ 0-120) 2m
TARDREE made a successful switch to the larger obstacles at Uttoxeter five days ago, scoring readily from a fair sort and the Mahler gelding can quickly follow up under a 7lbs penalty.
Laura Morgan’s charge had shown some fair form in the point-to-point ranks in Ireland prior to joining this yard where he won a bumper at Sedgefield on his second start for his new stable and he ran well without winning in a pair of starts over timber either side of four months off.
Chasing always looked his game however and he ran out a comfortable winner of his chase debut, scoring by six lengths and making all while largely jumping well in front aside from getting in too tight at three out although he was clever at the fence.
There’s likely better to come and he can defy his penalty to strike again assuming this outing doesn’t come too soon.
3:20 Salisbury – MansionBet Bet £10 Get £20 Margadale Fillies’ Handicap Cl3 (3yo+ 0-90) 1m2f
None of the five who go to post for this race can be overlooked and a tentative vote goes to AMY BEACH who has progressed with each run and Mick Channon’s charge can overturn form with reopposing Talbeyah.
The New Approach filly finished runner-up behind that rival on just her second start at Chepstow in April, still looking a little green and beaten six lengths although she was trying to give 3lbs to Owen Burrows’ charge.
She got off the mark at the third attempt, beating Reina Del Mar by a head having travelled well into the race and she appeared to win a shade comfortably; there could be better to come now moving into a handicap and she enjoys a big pull at the weights with Talbeyah now so could turn the tables this time.
4:05 Wolverhampton – EBC Group Handicap Cl5 (3yo 0-75) 6f
THE WATERMAN posted a career best effort when finding only one too good at Salisbury late last month and it might be worth chancing Tom Ward’s charge to improve on that run here and get off the mark on his tapeta debut.
The Charm Spirt gelding hadn’t shown his true colours on his only previous start on an artificial surface at Lingfield last September, possibly amiss; but he showed improved form to chase home Amor De Mi Vida latest where he was denied only by a half-length.
He ran on well there having been caught further back than ideal and the handicapper has reacted with just a 1lb rise in the weights so he could go one better here with further improvement possible.
4:20 Southwell – Newark Days Out Handicap Hurdle Cl4 (4yo+ 0-120) 2m
TIMBERMAN showed some promise in a short spell with Nicky Henderson, finishing fifth in a Sandown novice hurdle won by Fiddlerontheroof prior to being absent for more than a year thereafter and moving to Fergal O’Brien.
After a couple of runs in jumpers’ bumpers the Califet gelding has won two of his three hurdles starts, latterly running out a narrow winner over Ambassador at Market Rasen last month where he wore a hood for the first time.
He now makes his debut in a handicap where there could be improvement to come and an initial 120 rating might prove lenient given he is open to progress in this sphere.
5:15 Ayr – Join Racing TV Now Maiden Stakes Cl5 (3yo+) 1m
WATER IRIS can get her head in front at the fifth attempt and the Pivotal filly might prove tough to beat.
David O’Meara’s charge has the most experience of this field having had four runs, but she’s made the frame each time although likely wasn’t suited by soft ground at Beverley last month when beaten a long way by Timeless Soul.
The form of her earlier runner-up effort over course and distance has been boosted however and she’ll likely benefit from a return to a sounder surface so she could do better and there’d be no surprise to see her firmly in the mix here.
5:30 Wetherby – Follow @racingtv On Twitter Novice Median Auction Stakes Cl6 (3-4yo) 7f
TOMMASO didn’t run like a 33/1 chance on his debut at Carlisle last month and with that experience under his belt it may be worth chancing Stef Keniry’s charge to go one better here.
The Bobby’s Kitten gelding was beaten just a half-length by Pallas Lord, slowly away and green early but quickly catching on and he caught the eye finishing off strongly to almost snatch the runner-up spot.
That race has thrown up a subsequent winner while he was just a short-head behind a 75-rated rival and if he were to run to a similar level here then he ought not to be far away with further improvement anticipated.
This doesn’t look the strongest of races and he can get off the mark at the second attempt.
6:30 Wetherby – Watch Race Replays At racingtv.com Handicap Cl5 (4yo+ 0-70) 1m
SIX STRINGS has been around a few doors but the Requinto gelding is a capable performer and he comes here on the back of a win at Catterick last month under this rider on just his second start for Grant Tuer.
He had gone the thick end of two years without a win before scoring at Wolverhampton for Derek Shaw back in March after which he made the frame in a trio of starts on the all-weather and following his switch to this yard he posted a very good third at Musselburgh on his stable debut prior to getting back to winning ways.
The handicapper has pushed him up 8lbs for that which on the face of things looks harsh; but he’s well-treated on his old form and if he can build on that latest success then he ought to remain competitive and can strike again.
