TUESDAY RACING BEST BETS – TIPS FOR HEREFORD, HUNTINGDON, LEICESTER, WOLVERHAMPTON & NEWCASTLE
12:45 Hereford – Let’s Talk Handicap Hurdle (Div I) Cl5 (4yo+ 0-100) 2m5½f
PROJECT MARS represents a red-hot combination of Fergal O’Brien and Paddy Brennan and the Presenting gelding can get back on the scoresheet on his return to action.
Formerly with Nick Gifford for whom he failed to win, he wasted little time in getting off the mark for this yard when successful on only his second outing where he struck at Huntingdon back in February having finished runner-up on his return.
He followed up that win with a good third at Kelso next time despite conceding plenty of weight and he can get competitive on his reappearance from the same mark for his in-form handler.
1:00 Huntingdon – MansionBet Proud To Support British Racing Novices’ Handicap Chase (GBB Race) (Div I) Cl4 (4yo+ 0-120) 2m4f
PEUR DE RIEN showed only a moderate level of ability over hurdles but Oliver Sherwood’s charge took a big step forward on his seasonal reappearance and chase debut with a ready success over a subsequent winner and the Kapgarde gelding can follow up.
Never better than fourth over timber, he shaped much better faced with fences to run out a five lengths’ victor over Go As You Please where he travelled and jumped well, and he was value for the winning distance.
The runner-up has won since to give the form a boost and while an 8lbs rise in the ratings and tackling a higher grade demand more from the selection he could prove up to the task on just his second chase outing and with race-fitness on his side.
4:30 Leicester – Aspall Selling Stakes Cl5 (3-4yo) 7f
AL SUIL EILE has been plying his trade on the all-weather of late where he’s largely performed well, often making the frame and posting a win at Southwell back in January.
John Quinn’s charge looked in need of the outing over this trip on his return at Newcastle earlier in the month, eventually finishing fifth behind Algaffaal and the Alhebayeb gelding ought to be sharper for that run.
His last turf run came over course and distance last September when beating Jean Valjean and he could bounce back to winning ways here if handling the softer ground and no surprise to see him competitive if the conditions don’t catch him out.
6:30 Wolverhampton – Follow At The Races On Twitter Handicap (Div II) Cl6 (3yo+ 0-62) 1m½f
BEAU GESTE is 3-3 at this venue and the Lilbourne Lad gelding can extend his perfect record at the track with a return to winning ways.
Tony Carroll’s charge has been in good form since joining the yard from Ireland, winning three from four over the winter months and finishing runner-up when beaten at Kempton inbetween successes. He might just have needed the run when third at Lingfield on his return post-lockdown and ran better than the bare result when last seen at Goodwood in August where he wasn’t seen to best effect.
Back from another short break and returned to this venue he looks capable of going close reunited with Hollie Doyle and no surprise to see the pair competitive.
6:45 Newcastle – Free Tips Daily On attheraces.com Handicap (Div I) Cl4 (3yo+ 0-80) 1m
ANIF was progressive last term for David Evans, winning four times which included two on the tapeta at Wolverhampton and the Cape Cross gelding opened his account for current handler Michael Herrington at the third attempt when winning over this course and distance in November.
The selection has run well on both subsequent outings here, latterly getting to within a half-length of La Rav over course and distance last month where a subsequent winner was behind and he turns out here only 1lb higher in the weights.
Assuming then that he’ll be sharper for his recent return to action then he can build on that performance to go one place better here and he can get involved at the finish.
