TUESDAY RACING BEST BETS – TIPS FOR THE DAY’S UK RACEMEETINGS ON THE FLAT
2:10 Brighton – Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Novice Stakes Cl5 (3yo+) 1m
FAR HOPE scored in the manner of a promising sort when getting off the mark on debut at Newbury in April and the Night Of Thunder filly subsequently lost no caste in defeat when beaten just a neck by Degree on the tapeta at Wolverhampton next time when taking the silver medal.
Simon Crisford’s charge was only run down in the last few strides having been forced to race wide throughout and there could be better to come from her over this additional furlong back on turf.
She gets 5lbs at the weights from fellow last-time scorer Badlands, while Marco Ghiani can take a further 3lbs off her back so she could be worth chancing to take advantage of the weights to get back to winning ways.
2:55 Redcar – Longines Irish Champion Weekend EBF Restricted Maiden Fillies’ Stakes (Bands C/D) (GBB) (Div II) Cl5 (2yo) 6f
RUBY RED had plenty go wrong for her over this course and distance earlier in the month where she travelled well into the contest but got no sort of run when finishing sixth of 13 behind Favourite Child; however the Mayson filly can do better here and could go close.
David O’Meara’s charge has run better than her form figures to date suggest and she surely would have finished a lot closer last time out with a bit more luck in running and she finished off the race well once clear.
She can improve and she looks worth another chance so there’s be no shock in seeing her going close here.
3:30 Redcar – Watch Racing TV In Stunning HD Fillies’ Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-85) 5f
BALLINTOY HARBOUR ran well on debut to finish fourth behind the smart Umm Kulthum at Thirsk before striking at the second attempt with a ready victory over Prospect; Paul Midgley’s charge then made a winning return from a break latest with a victory at Newcastle in April.
The Vadmos filly had just over one length to spare that day over Diamonds Dancing, making all and finding plenty to hold on well and there could be more to come as she steps into the handicap ranks from a mark that could underestimate her.
The assessor has handed her an initial rating of 80 for this assignment which looks very fair on balance and likely to continue to improve she can strike again here back on turf to bring up her hat-trick.
3:45 Leicester – Book Tickets Now @ leicester-racecourse.com Handicap Cl5 (3yo 0-75) 1m2f
Lightly-raced SONNING had excuses for a poor effort at Chester earlier in the month and it would be no surprise to see Alan King’s charge bouncing back to winning ways here.
The The Gurkha gelding made a winning reappearance when scoring over this trip at Beverley in April, beating Happy by a neck following five months off, finding plenty to hold off the challenge of the runner-up.
That race has thrown up a couple of winners since and he was possibly unsuited by the longer trip around the sharp Chester turns when finishing five lengths’ fifth behind Love Is Golden although the ground also could be a viable excuse for his poor effort.
Back on better ground and a more conventional track where he faces a less searching test of stamina he could be worth chancing to leave that performance behind here.
4:25 Brighton – Follow At The Races On Twitter Handicap Cl6 (4yo+ 0-55) 5½f
GLAMOROUS BEAST bounced back to winning form when successful over this course and distance last month and the Lethal Force gelding can follow up.
Ron Harris’ charge had also won at Leicester last June in a light campaign and he stepped up markedly on his reappearance effort to resume winning ways with a defeat of Wiff Waff latest, scoring by a neck.
He appeared to win a shade readily that day and he could have been let off lightly by the assessor with just a 2lbs rise to contend with on this occasion so he ought to remain competitive and can make his presence felt as he bids to add to his tally.
6:50 Lingfield – bet365 Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-75) 5f
PEERLESS proved steadily progressive in handicaps last term, winning at Wolverhampton in October and finishing runner-up under a penalty at Kempton eight days later.
Ed Walker’s charge made a winning return from six months off when beating Atiyah at Nottingham in April and possibly found the run just coming too soon at Goodwood latest when last of four behind Warrior Brave although that did come in a stronger race.
The form of his earlier win has been boosted with the third, fourth and fifth all winning since and dropping back in grade here he has Saffie Osborne’s 5lbs claim to further aid his cause so a big run wouldn’t come as a shock on the back of a longer break between runs and the Kodiac gelding can get back to winning ways.
7:00 Yarmouth – Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap Cl5 (4yo+ 0-75) 1m6f
BYRON HILL remains a maiden after six starts but the Kingston Hill gelding has shown enough to suggest he can win a race and he showed some improvement over previous runs when returning from six months off to find only one too good at Doncaster in April.
Charlie Fellowes’ charge had been gelding in the interim between runs and although no match for the winner on his reappearance he perhaps wasn’t suited by the slow pace.
The third from that race has won since, while the winner ran well in a valuable Newmarket handicap next time behidn Torcello; he could have further improvement to come as a result and this represents an easier assignment than the one he took in latest while the return to a longer trip will be in his favour.
Racing off the same mark he should make his presence felt and he can get off the mark now in a race that probably won’t take a great deal of winning should he find some improvement.
