WEDNESDAY HORSE RACING TIPS – BEST BETS AT SANDOWN, YARMOUTH, BEVERLEY & KELSO
2:00 Yarmouth – Watch Free Race Replays On attheraces.com Fillies’ Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-75) 6f
CLEVER CANDY arrives chasing a hat-trick of wins and the Intello filly can land the three-timer if continuing her current good spell.
Michael Bell’s charge has found improvement this term, scoring at Salisbury in August and then following up a shade readily at Kempton latest with a head defeat of Villain’s Voice.
The handicapper has pushed her up another 3lbs for that latest win, but red-hot claimer Ray Dawson takes the reins and his 5lbs claim offsets that burden and more to leave her well handicapped. She can give another good account here and no surprise to see her collect.
3:10 Yarmouth – EBF Stallions John Musker Fillies’ Stakes (Listed Race) Cl1 (3yo+) 1m2f
It could be worth chancing MAJESTIC NOOR to bounce back to winning form having possibly been stretched by twelve furlongs when last seen in a French Listed contest at Longchamp in July where the Frankel filly finished fifth behind Valia.
John Gosden’s charge had won both her previous starts following a return from a break, scoring over course and distance and at Newbury where she had a head to spare over Sorrel on her handicap debut. That runner-up has won twice since to give the form a boost and she wasn’t disgraced in France last time with the race since throwing up a trio of winners including at Group Three and Listed level.
Back in trip for this outing over which she is 2-2 she has the services of the red-hot Hollie Doyle for this assignment and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see her bouncing back here with a better performance.
3:35 Beverley – Churchill Tyres A Great British Brand Handicap Cl5 (3yo+ 0-75) 1m2f
ZIHAAM has had excuses for recent disappointments and the Dutch Art gelding could be worth chancing to bounce back here.
Roger Fell’s charge is 3-5 over course and distance, scoring the latest of them in July when running out a two lengths’ winner over Highwaygrey; subsequent runs have been less successful, but he might have found one mile too sharp back here in August before possibly failing to stay the longer trip in the soft ground latest behind Prince Alex.
Back at this trip and with better ground to contend with he has been eased 1lb in the ratings and can do better with Ben Curtis up.
3:55 Sandown – Chasemore Farm Fortune Stakes (Listed Race) Cl1 (3yo+) 1m
Although deserted by Jim Crowley it might be worth taking a chance on MOTAKHAYYEL to bounce back having disappointed when last seen beating only one rival home in the Sovereign Stakes at Salisbury last month.
Richard Hannon’s Heeraat colt had been progressive prior to that disappointing run, returing from eleven months off to register back-to-back wins which include the Buckingham Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot and the Bunbury Cup at Newmarket where he beat Sir Busker and others in the matter of a horse ready to make the step up to Pattern company.
The runner-up has done little harm to the form with two subsequent silver medal finishes from three runs which include in a Group Two at Goodwood and the selection clearly failed to give his running last time out behind Regal Reality.
Assuming he can bounce back to the level of form he had shown previously then he can easily take a hand in the finish to this contest.
4:40 Kelso – Borders Carers Trust Novices’ Handicap Chase Cl5 (4yo+ 0-105) 2m1f
KIRUNA PEAK has had just three starts over fences but Fergal O’Brien’s charge has got his act together latest when running out a ready winner over Lake Baikal at Southwell and the Arcano mare can build on that success to strike again.
A dual-winner on the flat for Mick Channon, her form over hurdles was hit and miss but she did manage to score a win at Huntingdon last May. Making her chase debut when returning from more than ten months off the track at Bangor she shaped quite well in finishing fourth but could only reach the same position next time at Newton Abbot.
A change of tactic for her winning run where she raced more prominently seemed to see her in a better light and while she is 6lbs higher in the weights for this outing she could well progress again for her in-form yard to follow up.
