WEDNESDAY HORSE RACING BEST BETS – TIPS FOR THE DAY’S UK RACEMEETINGS
3:40 Lingfield – Pinpoint Resourcing Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-75) 7f
BUSINESS seems better on the all-weather than on turf and the Siyouni gelding bounced back from some lesser runs on grass when turned out at Wolverampton last month in a first-time hood to find only one too good behind Sun Power and John Quinn’s charge can get off the mark.
The lightly-raced four year old has made the frame on all four outings now on an artificial surface although he’s yet to race here; however he can contest from the same mark as last time and both the winner and third horses home have gone in again since.
He has the headgear again to help and if running to a similar level here then he ought to go close with Hollie Doyle in the saddle.
3:50 Musselburgh – Bet At racingtv.com Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-75) 7f
HAJJAM hasn’t won since going in at Ayr last August but the Paco Boy gelding has hinted in recent starts that his turn may not be too far away and Liam Bailey’s charge can get back to winning ways here.
He’s finished runner-up in two of his last three outings, most recently when beaten just a neck by Tamaska at Doncaster where he fought to the line but couldn’t get past the eventual winner.
This slightly softer surface will hold no fears and the handicapper has left him alone at the weights so he ought to go well again where he remains well-treated on his old form.
4:35 Catterick – Racing Again 7th September Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-70) 7f
MEDICINE JACK found only reopposing Klopp Of The Kop too strong when the pair met at Beverley two weeks ago to record his second runner-up effort in his last three starts and it might be worth chancing Roger Fell’s charge to turn the tables.
The Equiano gelding was outbattled by the winner close home but has a slight pull at the weights on this occasion which might be enough for him to come out on top this time around although his losing streak on turf is certainly mounting up.
He did win more recently on the all-weather though from a higher mark than this and he can continue to make his presence felt so every chance he can go close.
8:10 Wolverhampton – Free Tips On attheraces.com Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-70) 1m1½f
WOW WILLIAM has yet to get off the mark but he’s shown enough in his starts to suggest he can pick up a small race and the The Wow Signal gelding can can make the breakthrough here.
Back from a break at Lingfield on the turf course he finished a good third behind Yanifer last month, beaten just over two lengths and both the winner and runner-up have won since to boost that form.
Dropped 1lb in the weights subsequently he steps up a fair bit in trip for this latest run but the extra distance looks sure to suit and he can show improvement for the stiffer test so no surprise to see him in the mix again.
8:30 Kempton – Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day (London Middle Distance Series Qualifier) Handicap Cl3 (3yo 0-90) 1m3f
ZIKANY is progressing well this term and Sir Michael Stoute’s charge can get back to winning ways here despite slight reservations about the drop in distance.
The Zoffany colt was a Windsor winner back in May where he ran out a five lengths’ winner over Vitruve and he ran well in defeat next time under a penalty when crossing the line in a close third behind Reina Del Mar at Newbury.
Subsequently given a break he returned with a very good second to Stay Well at Salisbury, beaten less than one length and he’s only 1lb higher here following that effort. This does look a slightly stronger race but he’s lightly raced still and likely has better still to come.
He kept on well last time but didn’t have the pace to challenge and assuming he has no qualms about dropping back in distance he ought to go well for his top yard.
