Tuesday’s 3,737/1 Lucky 15 – Our UK Racing Best Bets On November 30
Horse Racing Tips on Tuesday, November 30
There are three meetings spread across Britain on Tuesday with the action coming from Lingfield, Southwell and Newcastle. Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across the Tuesday cards, which make up our advised Tuesday Lucky 15.
Alya’s Gold Award (12.10 Lingfield)
The fact that ALYA’S GOLD AWARD is set to go through the ring at next week’s Tattersalls December Sales could prove a big indicator for the strength of her chances in this modest 5f nursery.
Richard Hughes’ daughter of Starspangledbanner showed clear ability in three starts in novice company earlier in the year, and performed better than the bare result on nursery debut last time, where she pulled her rider’s arms out for the majority of the race.
Hollie Doyle may try and ride this filly more prominently dropped back to the minimum trip, and if doing so she could prove tough to peg back on this sharp track.
On some of her novice form this mark of 62 shouldn’t prove beyond Alya’s Gold Award, and the fact she is set to be sold next week suggests connections are hoping for a big run here to boost her sales price.
Sea Of Charm (2.45 Lingfield)
Harry Dunlop’s SEA OF CHARM is one of the least exposed runners in this line-up and therefore is taken to get off the mark at the eleventh attempt under rules.
She has looked steadily progressive in three starts since returning from a break, being beaten less than 2l when third at Wolverhampton last week.
George Rooke once again retains familiarities on this Charm Spirit filly, and on pedigree there is reason to believe that she will benefit from this step up to 1m2f for the first time, with her dam a winner over the trip. The yard has proven profitable to follow with their runners here at Lingfield in recent seasons and Sea Of Charm is taken to enhance that by landing the spoils today.
Midnight Callisto (3.30 Southwell)
There are a couple of unexposed lurkers in this extended 2m4f handicap hurdle, but even so this looks the ideal opportunity to strike for the 6yo MIDNIGHT CALLISTO.
Anthony Honeyball’s mare was placed at Listed level in bumpers and although winless from five hurdles outings she has shown enough to suggest that she will be winning from a mark of 100.
A recent pipe-opener at Exeter should have blown off the cobwebs, and stepping back up to this intermediate distance is expected to suit. With the second run after a wind operation often a good time to catch horses, Midnight Callisto rates a solid play here.
Stay Smart (3.45 Newcastle)
The opening race at Newcastle is a 0-74 handicap run over 5f. One runner that sneaks into that bracket is STAY SMART, who represents the bang in-form David O’Meara team.
This colt was deemed good enough to contest last year’s Windsor Castle Stakes, and he returned from a break with an excellent third at Chelmsford last week.
Having gained two of three career wins on Tapeta a return to this surface promises to suit, and Stay Smart is currently 2lb below his last winning mark. He certainly doesn’t shape as though returning to 5f will be a problem, particularly with this stiff finish in prospect, and that makes him look a value play at the prices.
