Tuesday’s 4,216/1 Lucky 15 – Our MEGA Odds Picks For 30th August
Horse Racing Tips on Tuesday, August 30
It’s a quiet day of racing with just five meetings going to post across the UK on Tuesday, August 30th, but there’s still some decent racings to get stuck into!
Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across the cards, which make up our advised Tuesday Lucky 15.
*Odds correct at time of posting – 4:35pm Monday 29th August*
Narasha (1.20 Chepstow) – 7/1
We start the lucky 15 with a bit of a speculative punt, but we’re hopeful NARASHA should come on for her debut run and can run well at a huge price in the opener at Chepstow.
She started awkwardly on her debut run and took her time getting into stride, and despite running green she still finished sixth. That wasn’t a bad effort, with four of the five who finished ahead of her that day already having a race under their belt.
The trainer/jockey course form is another hint she could be set for a big run. Trainer Ed Dunlop has a 23% strike-rate at Chepstow, and jockey Rossa Ryan has a 21% strike-rate when riding at the Welsh course. Providing she breaks well and she puts her experience to good use, Narasha looks a cracking E/W bet in the opener.

Your Spirit (2.35 Ripon) – 11/2
David O’Meara’s YOUR SPIRIT wasn’t up to the task in Class 4 company last time out, but back in calmer waters she can gain that maiden victory.
Having only finished outside the places just once in her five races so far in her career, it’s almost guaranteed that she will run her race, and that duck egg came in Listed company so can be easily forgiven. She came third in her last Class 5 race, and that form has received multiple boosts. The winner Lady Hollywood followed up in Listed company next time out, as did the runner-up (Mrs U S A) and fourth (Dubai Jemila).
Of the challengers, Castan and Kodi Dancer finished third and fourth at Carlisle last time out, and they can follow our selection home.

Rita Rana (3.20 Epsom) – 15/2
We think we’ve found a good one here at a cracking price – RITA RANA.
Adam West’s filly has had three races over 1m 2f, resulting in a fourth placed finish on the all-weather at Lingfield, before finishing runner-up at Brighton in June and eventually getting his head in front over C&D next time out.
Nonsuch Lad (who is the market leader for this race) was five lengths back in third in Rita Rana’s C&D victory, and we see no reason that form should be reversed.
She clearly prefers running on turf rather than all-weather, but her trainer doesn’t seem to have noticed yet. Her AW record reads 96424378 (0-8), compared to her turf record of 8024215 (1-7, 37% place-rate), with those first two turf runs coming in tougher class 4 company.
Trainer Adam West has had two winners from nine runners at Epsom this year (22% strike-rate) and with top young jockey Marco Ghiani booked for the ride, he looks to have an excellent chance of making it 2-2 over C&D.

Presenting Yeats (6.40 Newton Abbot) – 4/1
Our final pick is PRESENTING YEATS to land a competitive affair at Newton Abbot. Milton Harris’ gelding had been knocking on the door of late, finishing in the top four in each of his last fourteen races, and this looks a golden opportunity to gain an elusive win.
He’s won over C&D in the past and was less than a length from winning at Fontwell last week. That run was impressive considering he was giving the winner almost two stone, and finished well clear of the remainder of the field.
Paddy Brennan has been in superb form of late (4 winners from last 9 runners), and has ridden two winners from his six rides at Newton Abbot this season. Trainer Milton Harris isn’t in the best of form of late, but he does have a 25% strike-rate at the Devon course this season.
Our Three Sons won over C&D last time out, with Get The Appeal back in third, and this looks to be a straight shoot out between those two and our selection. But we’re hopeful Presenting Yeats can gain a long overdue victory and continue Paddy Brennan’s red-hot form.
