WEDNESDAY HORSE RACING BEST BETS – TIPS FOR THE DAY’S UK RACING FIXTURES
2:30 Uttoxeter – Follow At The Races On Twitter Novices’ Handicap Chase Cl5 (4yo+ 0-100) 3m
LAWTOP LEGEND is a dual-winning hurdler for George Bewley and Dr Richard Newland and the Milan gelding has made a promising switch back to chasing for his current yard, finishing a good third on his latest outing at Worcester last month.
The Milan gelding was beaten five lengths on that occasion behind No Cruise Yet, challenging three out but unable to sustain his effort. However he has been left alone at the weights and he could yet be capable of better as a chaser.
This looks a fair contest for the grade but he can compete from a racing weight towards the foot of the handicap and no surprise to see him going well.
3:05 Uttoxeter – Ken Boulton Memorial Handicap Hurdle (For The Ken Boulton Memorial Trophy) Cl4 (4yo+ 0-120) 2m7½f
ALL HAIL CAESAR has been in good form in his last few starts, winning over hurdles at Wetherby and Hexham over fences before finding one too good in a stronger race back at Hexham over the smaller obstacles last month.
Rebecca Menzies’ Nathaniel gelding wore a visor on that last run where he was beaten just over two lengths by Ever So Much although he was attempting to give more than one stone to the winner; he had pulled clear of the third however and he should remain competitive having been raised just 1lb for that latest run.
Back in a Class 4 contest he can get back on track here and resume the winning trend.
3:20 Lingfield – Free Tips Daily On attheraces.com Handicap Cl6 (3yo 0-65) 6f
It might be worth giving another chance to SILVER NEMO who has largely plied his trade on the all-weather but showed that turf held no fears when finishing runner-up over course and distance behind Danzart back in May under similar conditions.
Sean Keightley’s charge had won twice on the all-weather back in April, scoring wins at Chelmsford after which he racked up successive runner-up finishes and his latest run back on the all-weather yielded a fair fourth in a stronger race behind Aramis Grey where he was beaten by less than two lengths having missed the break.
The Markaz gelding drops back in grade here into a Class 6 and with a little more luck and a better start he could get back to winning ways here returning to turf.
3:30 Catterick – Racing TV Profits Returned To Racing Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-85) 6f
LOOK OUT LOUIS has found a new lease of life under the care of Julie Camacho, winning three times since joining the yard including latest at Chester where the Harbour Watch gelding scored by a neck from Sir Maximilian.
He made all the running that day from a favourable stall position, but he appeared to win a shade cosily in the end from a fairly decent field which included several subsequent winners.
Cheekpieces might have made the difference to his fortunes given his improved form in the headgear and he can continue to thrive upped just 3lbs where he should get competitive again.
7:05 Yarmouth – QuinnBet Acca Bonus Handicap Cl3 (3yo 0-90) 6f
EMPEROR SPIRIT was a winner at Wolverhampton back in December and the progressive Holy Roman Emperor colt can get back on track here having found the test of the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot too much for him.
John and Thady Gosden’s charge ran well for a good part of that race however, setting the pace on the far side before weakening behind Perotto; but he’s likely in essence better than he showed in that competitive handicap and this drop in in class can see him bounce back.
Possibly ridden too aggressively last time out he remains a low-mileage sort who is likely to have better to come and he could take advantage of this return to a lesser grade to resume winning ways down in trip.
7:45 Wolverhampton – Follow At The Races On Twitter Handicap Cl5 (3yo 0-70) 1m4f
MAKETH BELIEVETH has shaped with some promise in his starts to date, latterly finishing third after a break to Mickydee at Lingfield on the turf course where the Make Believe colt was beaten two lengths.
Harry Dunlop’s charge wore cheekpieces on that occasion which might have helped him find some measure of improvement although he was certainly given a lot to do on that occasion in ground that may not have entirely suited.
He did run on well however which hinted that this step up in trip would be favourable and racing off the same mark in what looks an ordinary race he can make his presence felt.
