Horse Racing Tips on Tuesday, May 31
There are five meetings spread across Britain on Tuesday, May 31st with the action coming from Newbury, Leicester, Brighton, Yarmouth and Thirsk. Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across the cards, which make up our advised Tuesday Lucky 15.
Tregony (3.10 Newbury) 15/2
Clive Cox’s TREGONY enjoyed a productive 2021, winning five times including in a valuable 1m2f handicap in the Racing League. She is taken to get back to winning ways in Newbury’s Follow @BetVictor On Twitter Handicap on Tuesday.
This daughter of New Bay hasn’t got her head in front in two starts this season, but she endured no luck in running on her seasonal debut at Windsor and almost certainly would have gone close there with a clear passage.
Although below her best at Ascot last time, the tactical nature of that race wouldn’t have suited her, and if getting a stronger pace to aim at in this bigger field expect to see Tregony finishing off strongly over a trip which has always promised to suit.
Cygneture (3.40 Newbury) 6/1
We can see a Royal winner on Newbury’s Tuesday card courtesy of CYGNETURE, who improved markedly in a trio of all-weather novices last year, scoring in impressive fashion at Wolverhampton when last seen.
That Wolverhampton form has worked out very well since, with the second, third and fourth all winning since, and considering that the 76-rated Tango Tonight was 6l behind Cygneture, there’s a fair chance that the handicapper has let her in lightly off an opening mark of 80.
The Charlton’s Noya looks set to go off favourite for this Watch Last Fan Standing On YouTube Fillies’ Handicap and could be well treated herself off a mark of 78, yet Cygneture provides a value alternative at the prices, and it’s promising to see her yard send out a few winners recently having endured a slightly frustrating May.
Prince Of Abington (4.40 Newbury) 6/1
Jane Chapple-Hyam’s PRINCE OF ABINGTON hasn’t got his head in front since November 2020, yet Newbury’s Good Luck Michael Andrews 11th Of June Handicap appears to provide a good opportunity to break that losing streak.
A penultimate Wetherby third suggested that this 4yo could have dropped to a winnable mark (placed in handicaps off marks in the low 80s last summer) and although he failed to back that showing up at Leicester last time, Prince Of Abington appeared disadvantaged by racing closer to the stands rail than most, so it’s a run possibly worth forgiving.
William Buick’s presence in the saddle suggests that connections are anticipating a bold showing here, and this will represent the first time that Prince Of Abington has dropped into Class 5 company in handicaps.
Ribtide (7.22 Thirsk) 17/2
Thirsk’s 6f constant-services.com Handicap looks a fairly modest event on paper, and it could provide RIBTIDE with a good chance to break his maiden tag.
This son of Ribchester finished a 33/1 runner-up at Newcastle earlier this year when bumping into the now 83-rated Fly To Glory. He’s been nowhere near that standard in two subsequent runs, yet he had excuses having found soft ground against him at Pontefract and then enduring no luck in running when down the field on handicap debut here just over three weeks ago.
He’s down in the weights and in class here, whilst a little better luck in running can see him at least go close in a race that all of the runners come into with something to prove.
