WEDNESDAY HORSE RACING TIPS – BEST BETS AT REDCAR, GOODWOOD, PERTH & KEMPTON
2:30 Perth – EBF Mares’ National Hunt Novices’ Hurdle (EBF Mares’ NH Novices’ Hurdle Series Qualifier) (GBB Race) Cl4 (4yo+) 2m4f
Olly Murphy doesn’t send too many runners to Perth so it could be worth chancing ALPHA CARINAE who makes the long journey north and defends an unbeaten record.
The Robin Des Champs mare is 2-2, winning a point-to-point prior to landing the spoils in a Newcastle bumper back in January. She looked a useful prospect in that outing although the form since has taken a few knocks.
But, switching now to hurdling she is bred to make her mark in this sphere and could improve significantly now tackling obstacles upped in trip. This isn’t an easy introduction but she can show up well and every chance she can uphold her perfect record on her first try hurdling for a very shrewd yard.
2:55 Goodwood – tote Foundation Stakes (Listed Race) Cl1 (3yo+) 1m2f
It could be worth chancing HIGH END to build on a very encouraging return to action at Sandown last month and Saeed bin Suroor’s charge can give a good account upped in class.
The Dubawi gelding won his first three starts back in 2017 after which he found only one too good next time although he suffered an injury and was subsequently off the track for three years following a run in the Old Rowley Cup.
Runner-up on his reappearance following 1045 days off, getting to within one length of Data Protection, run down late by the eventual winner he has been given time to recover from those exertions and can build on that return where he should be sharper for the outing.
This is tougher upped in class, but he looks worth chancing at this higher level and he can run well.
3:15 Redcar – Racing TV Profits Returned To Racing Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-70) 5f
NIBRAS AGAIN has been in decent form this season, winning at Beverley in July on the back of a couple of earlier placed efforts and Paul Midgley’s charge is forgiven a lesser effort at Musselburgh earlier in the month.
There the Kyllachy gelding beat only two rivals home behind Victory Angel, but he wasn’t done for in the race until being badly hampered entering the final furlong and he never recovered.
The runner-up from that race has won twice since, while the fifth has also scored a subsequent success and the selection could be capable of a quick bounce back to form having been eased 1lb in the ratings as a consequence of that effort.
A past winner from a mark higher than this, he can remain competitive and it would be no surprise to see him leave that latest performance behind.
3:40 Perth – Injured Jockeys Fund Handicap Hurdle Cl3 (4yo+ 0-140) 3m
JUSTATENNER is capable at his best and the Northern Legend gelding can build on an encouraging return to action at Uttoxeter last month to get back to winning ways.
A dual-winner last term, scoring at Cartmel and Ayr, Tristan Davidson’s charge lost little caste in defeat when beaten ten lengths behind Yes No Maybe So where he ran on late having been outpaced.
He might have snatched second but for a late mistake in that contest and he’s likely to prove sharper for that run so could be capable of doing better this time around. The form of that last run has been boosted by the winner scoring twice since and he’s been eased 1lb in the ratings so should remain competitive back at a venue over which he has won before.
Also placed twice over course and distance he should give another good account if building on that reappearance and it would be no surprise to see him in the mix.
6:00 Kempton – Unibet Extra Place Offers Every Day Fillies’ Novice Stakes Cl5 (3yo+) 1m
AROHA looks a more reliable proposition than standard-setting Perfect Inch who has struggled to string two good runs together; Brian Meehan’s charge then gets the vote having found only one too good on each of her last three starts.
Placed in Group company as a juvenile she has struggled to kick on as a three-year old and perhaps hasn’t quite met the levels hoped of her this term. That said, she has largely acquitted herself well this term despite failing to win and she was only beaten two lengths latest behind Oti Ma Boati at Goodwood last month.
This mark is clearly workable on that evidenec and a return to the all-weather could deliver a jolt of improvement and while she is perhaps more exposed than her rival she has proven also to be more consistent and should run her race again.
