Tuesday’s Lucky 15 – Our UK Racing Best Bets On April 5
Horse Racing Tips on Tuesday, April 5
There are three meetings spread across Britain on Tuesday, April 5th with the action coming from Southwell, Exeter and Pontefract. Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across the cards, which make up our advised Tuesday Lucky 15.
Champagne Terri (1.00 Pontefract)
CHAMPAGNE TERRI was giving away 9lb last time out at Doncaster to eventual winner Ghadbbaan when finishing a smart second. He’s weighted to reverse that form which in the context of this reads well.
He’s hardly a prolific winner, having 4 career wins today so far. However, judging on his last run he looked ready to pick up the winning thread again. He led for most of the way before being chased down by the rival he re-opposes on better terms this afternoon.
He looks sure to reverse that form on these terms and that could well be enough to win this.
Pocket The Profit (3.15 Pontefract)
George Boughey’s POCKET THE PROFIT was a prolific winner last winter as he notched a super four-timer on the all-weather and turf.
George Boughey gets prolific winner Pocket The Profit’s season under way at Pontefract on Tuesday
His final start saw that run come to an end where he finished 4th when favourite at Newcastle, however he was found to be coughing after that so we can put a line through that performance.
We can still expect more to come from him, and that may mean he’s still on a pretty workable mark and could take a bit of beating if his trainer has got him right for the season opener;
He likes to be held up in his races, relax early and work his way into the race. That should work here as there should be pace in the form of Lope De Vega who lies to make all. Expect a late charge on a track which will suit.
Coastguard Station (3.25 Southwell)
COASTGUARD STATION did himself no favours last time with a shoddy jump at the last costing him a chance to challenge the leader and possibly win.
That run minus the error was full of promise and he was well clear of the rest when making the error. If he can tidy up the mistakes in his jumping he looks sure to be challenging once again and should be a matter of time before he picks up the winning trend.
That could be today and we fancy him to go one better at the main expense of Mortlach and Daniel Doronda, both of whom also finished up in second spot in their last outings.
Ange Endormi (5.05 Southwell)
Ben Pauling’s ANGE ENDORMI showed very little in his hurdling career up until last time, his opening race in handicap company.
He went down fighting having led for much of the way showing he had plenty of talent and a good attitude to boot. The blinkers first time appeared to have the desired effect, and applied again should ensure he’s kept to his work out in front.
That was also his first run since having wind surgery, so he should be even better this time and we reckon he’s ready to go one better today.
