Tuesday’s 2,177/1 Lucky 15 – Our UK Racing Best Bets On June 21
Horse Racing Tips on Tuesday, June 21
Another five meetings spread across Britain and Ireland on Tuesday June 21st, with the action coming from Beverley, Brighton, Newbury, Newton Abbot and Sligo. Our expert editor has produced their top tips across the cards, which make up our advised Tuesday Lucky 15.
Queen Sarabi (2:00 Brighton) 9/2
Recommended BetQUEEN SARABI (2:00 Brighton) 9/2 Bet Now! New Customers only. 18+. T&C’s Apply. begambleaware.org.
Tony Carroll’s QUEEN SARABI looks a big price to win at Brighton on Tuesday. She has a fine record at Brighton on good/good to firm ground, including landing his sole career over C&D last month, and with this return to better ground she could take some stopping in this.
Her victory here in May was a game effort, and that form has worked out well. The runner-up that day (De Vegas Kid) won next time out, with the fourth (Mr Fayez) and fifth (Split Elevens) finishing in the places in their runs since. Even the seventh placed that day (Breckland) has since come out and won!
She failed to follow up last time out over C&D, but that was on good to soft ground, and that just doesn’t suit her. Both runs on GS have resulted in disappointing performances, and her best form is certainly on better ground.
Both Bear To Dream and Redredrobin will be prominent in the betting after impressive recent performances over this trip, but back on better ground and at much bigger odds (at time of writing) we prefer the chances of Queen Sarabi.
Proud Archi (2:45 Beverley) 11/2
Recommended BetPROUD ARCHI (2:45 Beverley) 11/2 Bet Now! New Customers only. 18+. T&C’s Apply. begambleaware.org.
Some horses love certain courses, and that’s the case with PROUD ARCHI. His record at Beverley reads 11494124593201664 (23% strike-rate), improving to 1149124932166 (30% strike-rate) over this trip on good/good to firm ground.
He’s had just two runs so far this season, including finishing fourth over C&D last time out. That was a much improved effort compared to his season reappearance, and he should come on even more for that run. This looks like a good opportunity to get him back in the winners enclosure.
He’s trainer Michael Dods sole runner tomorrow, and he’s booked Connor Beasley for the ride. The top jockey has a 23% strike-rate when riding at Beverley, and this is one of just three rides for him on the card tomorrow.
He’s won off a mark as high as 82 in the past, and he’s down to 66 for this. This is well within his capabilities and he looks too big a price to leave unbacked.
Silver Bubble (3:00 Brighton) 11/2
Recommended BetSILVER BUBBLE (3:00 Brighton) 11/2 Bet Now! New Customers only. 18+. T&C’s Apply. begambleaware.org.
Gary Moore has two lively chances with Silastar and Copperknob, but it’s Gay Kelleway’s recent winner SILVER BUBBLE who has caught our eye in this.
She had a nightmare start to her race last time, and was held up in last. But it was the way she finished the race that was so eye-catching, running on well to get the better of On The Nose in run-in. That pair finished TEN lengths clear of the rest, and considering that was her first attempt at the distance on turf it deserves extra credit.
She took the step up in trip in her stride and this is a course she tends to save her best for. Her two races here have resulted in a close third (where she would’ve probably won with a clearer run) and the recent win over C&D.
Talented claimer Saffie Osborne rode her to victory that day and she retains the ride here. She takes off a valuable 3lb, meaning she will run off 8st 13lbs. Favourite Silostar drops in class for this and deservedly heads the betting, but he has to give 15lb in weight to our pick. That’s a lot of weight to give, and with Silver Bubble running as well as ever, she looks a cracking bet in this.
Clan Jock (4:15 Beverley) 4/1
Recommended BetCLAN JOCK (4:15 Beverley) 4/1 Bet Now! New Customers only. 18+. T&C’s Apply. begambleaware.org.
Our final pick in our Lucky 15 is in the penultimate race at Beverley. Jim Goldie rarely sends a runner to the Yorkshire course, yet he’s sending just the one on the 550+ mile round trip, and that is CLAN JOCK.
He failed to land a single victory in Ireland when racing for Dermot Weld and Andrew Hughes, but seems a different horse since moving to Jim Goldie’s yard. In his three runs for him, he finished a close fourth on debut, before a head second to Mahanakhon Power last month. He then went to Hamilton and won nicely, staying on well and pulling clear of the field.
He has the in-form Paul Mulrennan taking over the ride, and he looks to have an excellent chance of landing a quickfire double in this. One thing is for sure, Jim Goldie isn’t sending him on the long distance trip just for fun!
