UK RACING BEST BETS ON TUESDAY – TIPS FOR THE DAY’S FLAT & JUMPS FIXTURES
2:05 Exeter – Exeter Staying Handicap Hurdle (Challenger Stayers’ Hurdle Series Qualifier) Cl3 (4yo+ 0-125) 2m7f
GAVROCHEKA got back to winning ways over hurdles when going in at Ffos Las in June and it might be worth chancing Philip Hobbs’ charge to strike again after finding only one too good last time out.
The Spanish Moon mare was wearing cheekpieces for the first time when beating First Destination on her return from a break although she failed to back that up next time at Uttoxeter. However she produced a better effort after three months off to chase home Une De La Seniere at Ludlow where she wore blinkers and a repeat of that effort ought to put her firmly in the mix.
She has won off higher in the past, scoring at Market Rasen last July from 2lbs higher than this and she was thought good enough to tackle Listed company on just her second career start over hurdles. While she’s not quite hit that level of expectation she could go well here upped in trip and with the yard going well she can go close.
2:40 Exeter – Love Devon Handicap Chase Cl3 (4yo+ 0-135) 3m
WHAT’S OCCURING doesn’t have too many miles on the clock as a chaser, but he did win on his first attempt over the larger obstacles at Ludlow and Oliver Sherwood’s charge could get back to winning ways here.
He’s been lightly raced since over fences, running just four times and following a promising return to action at Uttoxeter in June he was still going well when falling at Southwell latest behind Bbold. He likely would have gone close in that race with a clear round and given plenty of time to recover he could bounce back here.
He has gone well fresh in the past so his absence needn’t be a huge concern and over this three miles trip there’d be no surprise to see him making his presence felt where he could still have more to offer over the larger obstacles.
2:50 Newcastle – Betway Handicap Cl3 (3yo+ 0-90) 6f
EQUIANO SPRINGS might be worth chancing in this competitive contest having got back to winning ways when last seen at Newmarket last month and Tom Tate’s charge could follow up here.
The Equiano gelding had been out of sorts for much of the campaign but he appeared to turn a corner with his latest start, winning readily despite the relatively narrow margin of victory last month where he took advantage of his sliding handicap rating to run out an easy winner.
He met with some trouble in running in that last run so the effort can be marked up and a 3lbs rise in the weights remains workable as he returns to this course where he has a good record. Assuming he can back up that return to form last time out then he could go close here.
3:05 Yarmouth – Free Replays On attheraces.com Nursery Handicap Cl5 (2yo 0-70) 6f
POCKET THE PROFIT has won his last three starts and George Boughey’s charge can continue his winning streak despite carrrying a penalty here.
The lightly-raced Mayson gelding struck on soft ground at Brighton to start his winning spree over seven furlongs and he followed up over five furlongs at Wolverhampton before chalking up his hat-trick with a win at Newcastle latest.
Despite carrying a double-penalty he won readily from Strombolin that latest outing and while he has a much tougher ask under another penalty he could still be fairly treated and the booking of Ryan Moore is a positive.
His rivals look limited and with the potential for further improvement to come given his lightly-raced profile he can register another victory.
3:25 Newcastle – Watch Racing Free Online At Coral EBF Conditions Stakes (AW Championships Fast-Track Qualifier) Cl2 (2yo) 6f
SPACE COWBOY could be worth chancing against the likes of Canonzed and Eldrickjones and Richard Spencer’s charge can follow up his breakthrough victory at Wolverhampton last month.
The Kodi Bear colt did far too much on his debut at Newbury in August, breaking well and taking a fierce hold and he burnt himself out quickly in that first run; but he showed he had learned from the experience by settling much better in his next outing and he travelled well before idling in front although he had the race secured and only appeared to do enough to win.
Both the runner-up and third have won since to give the form a boost and while this will certainly demand more there could be plenty of improvement to come and he’s proven on this surface which is a positive.
Still unexposed he can make his presence felt with progress likely and no surprise if he were to make his presence felt here under Hollie Doyle.
8:00 Kempton – Unibet Casino Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-85) 1m4f
LOVING DASH improved for the longer trip when running out a ready winner over course and distance last month and it might be worth sticking with the Lope De Vega filly to repeat the dose here.
James Fanshawe’s charge had twice made the frame in novice contests before disappointing at Nottingham in August, possibly amiss, although she bounced back well to impressively land the spoils latest with a defeat of Mutarabby.
She’s been hit with a 9lbs rise in the weights for that success but the manner of the victory hinted at better to come and she’s unexposed over this longer trip so could easily have more to offer and every chance she can make her presence felt again here.
