WEDNESDAY HORSE RACING TIPS – BEST UK RACING BETS FOR THE DAY’S MEETINGS
12:50 Musselburgh – Jumps Are Back On Racing TV Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle (Go North Two Mile Series Qual’) Cl4 (4yo+ 0-120) 1m7½f
COUSIN OSCAR not for the first time underperformed faced with fences when last seen in action but Donald McCain’s charge can prove a different proposition now back over hurdles.
The Oscar gelding had been in good form previously, resuming winning ways when successful at Bangor under this rider, beating Hurricane Ali and El Borracho readily; the latter named has won twice since over fences.
Pulled up over the larger obstacles last time he can fare better returning to hurdles where he still lingers on a workable mark and with this contest potentially being a tactical battle he could conceivably boss his three rivals from the front.
1:30 Chepstow – Aspen Waite In Wales Trusted Advisors Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Chase Cl4 (4yo+ 0-115) 2m7½f
FRISCO BAY has had just two starts over fences where he’s shaped quite well on each occasion despite meeting with defeat and it might be worth chancing Jonjo O’Neill’s charge to get off the mark in this sphere.
The Yeats gelding has just one win to his name which came over hurdles at Uttoxeter back in April prior to tackling the larger obstacles and he hasn’t been disgraced in either of those starts.
The form of his Worcester third on his chase debut is certainly working out well and eased 1lb in the weights now allied with Kevin Brogan’s claim he looks handicapped to go close here for his in-form yard.
2:30 Chepstow – FTM Materials Handling Bridgend Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase (GBB Race) Cl3 (4yo+ 0-135) 2m
Lightly-raced AMARILLO SKY could be worth siding with to get off the mark at the first attempt over fences and Colin Tizzard’s charge ought to give a good account.
Twice a winner over hurdles in the summer, beating a useful sort in Heross Du Seuil at Newton Abbot for the second of them he returned from more than five months off the track to finish sixth in the Welsh Champion Hurdle behind Glory And Fortune and sure to strip fitter for that outing he could go well here.
He is a winner between the flags which offers hope ahead of this chase debut and he can make his presence felt here from a potentially lenient mark.
2:40 Nottingham – MansionBet Best Odds Guaranteed Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-85) 2m
CLOUD THUNDER got back to winning form with victory at Newbury twelve days ago and it might be worth siding with Heather Main’s charge to follow up here despite a 5lbs rise in the weights.
The Poet’s Voice gelding had made the frame in three of four previous starts having also won at Lingfield on the all-weather in a bumper back in February and he was returning from more than four months off when running out a five lengths’ winner latest from Be My Sea under this rider.
That win came in an apprentices’ race however and while he’s upped in the weights his rider can utilise his full claim this time around which in effect leaves him 2lbs below the mark he won from and proven in testing ground he looks sure to mount another bold bid here.
4:45 Kempton – Try Our New Super Boosts At Unibet Handicap Cl3 (3yo+ 0-95) 7f
STREET KID won for this column when last seen out at Wolverhampton and the Street Boss gelding can follow up.
Kevin Philippart De Foy’s charge had been a winner in Ireland for Jessica Harrington and following his switch to this yard he had largely been in decent form, often making the frame prior to that victory over Billy Mill and there could be more to come now he’s got his head in front.
He won a shade readily that day, running on well to score by just over one length and the form has been franked since by the fourth winning next time. The runner-up and third have also both made the frame in subsequent outings and a 3lbs rise ought to be workable assuming he proves as effective on polytrack now.
5:15 Kempton – Try Our New Price Boosts At Unibet Handicap Cl3 (3yo+ 0-95) 6f
MIGHTY GURKHA has been plying his trade at a higher level with some success and Archie Watson’s smart front-runner can get back to winning ways.
A course and distance winner back in January the Sepoy colt has been lightly raced since, making the track just four times in higher grades and he was last seen finishing around five lengths’ fourth to Judicial in the Listed Queensferry Stakes at Chester.
He now goes handicapping for the first time from a mark of 95 which may prove very workable in company that is weaker than he’s used to contesting and while he has to give away weight all round he could prove a tough nut to crack.
