Horse Racing tips

There is a good mix of Flat and jumps action again on Wednesday, with Newton Abbot hosting an eight-race card for the jumpers and Ayr and Lingfield on the Flat. 

So check out today’s horse racing tips and don’t forget to click the links to take advantage of the best price on offer

AFANDEM (2.40 Ayr,6f handicap)

Running into form after three euns in lockdown

MAGICAL THOMAS (3.20 Newton Abbot, 2m1f handicap hurdle)

The more sunshine the better for this one as he goes extremely well on fast ground with form figures of 1424 on going with the word firm in the description over hurdles.

Was given a run on the Flat just over a month ago so should be fully fit for this assignment and he is the ideal type to get another win over jumps this summer.

With his jockey’s 3lb claim factored in, he races off a mark 1lb lower than his last win and his trainer Neil Mulholland continues in decent form.

AHORSECALLEDWANDA (4.35 Lingfield, 6f handicap)

Goes well at this track with form figures of 312 in three starts at the course. Return to this course looks set to suit after a couple of decent efforts on the turf, most notably last time at Newmarket, where she finished just two lengths behind a horse who came out to run a stormer at Glorious Goodwood last week.

William Buick is rising well at the moment and males for an interesting jockey booking.

POUND OFF YOU (5.40 Ayr, 1m7f handicap)

Showed the first worthwhile form of her career in her first start in a handicap over 2m on her last run.

That form looks good enough to back her here as she is entitled to improve after just four career starts and she was forced to switch late on after running in behind horses.

Plenty to like about that effort and she races off a winnable mark if backing that up.
