Horse Racing Tips on Tuesday, August 2

There are four meetings spread across Britain on Tuesday, August 2nd with the action coming from Ffos Las, Catterick, Chelmsford and Kempton. Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across the cards, which make up our advised Tuesday Lucky 15.


Marine One (3.15 Catterick) 13/2

The ABF The Soldier’s Charity Handicap looks like a good opportunity for MARINE ONE to regain the winning thread.

Dr Richard Newland’s charge hasn’t been seen on the level for over 1000 days, but he has since developed into quite a smart handicap hurdler, currently holding an official rating of 116 in that sphere.

Marine One admittedly hasn’t been at his best of late, but he reverts to the level here running off a mark of just 58, which is almost certainly open to exploitation, whilst it’s also interesting that first-time cheekpieces are opted for.

Connections are persevering with Marine One for a reason, and whilst they would have been hoping for hurdles/chase wins this summer, it may instead be in lowly handicaps on the level where Marine One ultimately makes hay.

Tuesday Lucky 15 Tips. Dr Richard Newland can saddle a winner on the Flat at Catterick on Tuesday.

Midnight Train (3.30 Ffos Las) 11/1

The 3A’s Leisure Carmarthen Handicap looks like an open affair, with the favourite Albion Princess failing to justify odds of 6/4 on handicap debut last time and worth taking on as a result.

Preference goes to MIDNIGHT TRAIN, who unlike most of these has some relatively recent winning form to his name having taken a couple of handicaps at the start of this season.

Clive Cox’s charge has failed to supplement that in three subsequent runs, yet he caught the eye when fourth at Sandown last time, doing well to come from the back of the field in a race where the pace held up.

The winner of that race, Youthful King, has since run well in defeat in a better race at Glorious Goodwood, so the form reads well, and a pound drop in the weights leaves Midnight Train on a mark of 62, which he is surely capable of capitalising upon sooner rather than later.

Dropping markedly from Class 4 0-80 level into a Class 6 0-65 handicap, this appears to provide Midnight Train with a good opportunity to notch a third career win.


Captain Corcoran (4.45 Catterick) 9/1

Somewhat unusually for a mid-summer meeting, Catterick is set to race on soft ground on Tuesday, with the prospect of even more rainfall set to hit the course in the morning. The prospect of a soft surface makes CAPTAIN CORCORAN of immediate interest in the concluding racingtv.com Handicap.

This 5yo is fast approaching two years without a win, but he has gained both wins, and three of his top four RPRs, on ground officially described as soft, and his form figures here at Catterick currently read a respectable 144739, the seventh and ninth coming on ground described as good, and good to firm.

Although Captain Corcoran has cut little ice in a pair of sprint handicaps this year, he showed last season that he can bounce back to form from nowhere when getting his favoured surface, and continuing to tumble down the handicap he now finds himself on a mark of 50, 10lb below his last winning rating and 5lb lower than when beaten just a half-length at Nottingham in November.

Tuesday Lucky 15 Tips. David Allan can land the final race at Catterick on Tuesday with Captain Corcoran.

Belle Bouteille (8.50 Kempton) 14/1

Kempton’s Tuesday evening card concludes with the Unibet Extra Place Offers Every Day Handicap, a race in which BELLE BOUTEILLE catches the eye at the foot of the weights.

Ian Williams’ filly showed very little in a trio of maiden/novice starts at 2, but she improved for the switch to handicaps when fifth at Yarmouth on seasonal return, a race which has worked out well with the second and fourth both scoring subsequently and the winner, Caius Chorister, taking her next four starts which includes a Glorious Goodwood handicap last week.

Belle Bouteille shaped there as though a dour test such as this might suit her, and although she’s 6lb out of the weights here that is offset by her apprentice rider’s claim.

Plenty of these have something to prove, and whilst that admittedly includes Belle Bouteille, she appears to hold a greater scope for improvement than most and therefore looks well worth chancing at the forecast prices.
