Horse racing best bets on Wednesday

Another busy day of horse racing action across the UK awaits punters and we’ve picked out our horse racing best bets and tips for the day’s fixtures.

There’s another busy day of horse racing ahead for punters on Wednesday and five meetings will head to post across the UK where all the day’s action unfolds on the flat.

The afternoon action on Wednesday sees flat racing from Lingfield, Catterick and Yarmouth on the turf, while Bath are also racing on turf in the evening alongside an all-weather fixture at Kempton.

Across the day’s quintet of racing fixtures 36 races in all will unfold and we’ve looked over the action on Wednesday to pick out our horse racing best bets on Wednesday and tips for each meeting.


2:10 Lingfield – Tu Fund Managers Handicap Cl6 (4yo+ 0-60) 2m½f

BIRD FOR LIFE has done most of her running on the all-weather and the Delegator mare won on the polyrack here back in May when getting the better of General Zoff by a nose; that one has won since and she wasn’t disgraced latest when finishing just over one length third to Bailarico back here last month where she wasn’t seen to best effect having been slowly away and held up off the pace.

Mark Usher’s charge is relatively unexposed still on turf and she returns to this surface on a good mark 6lbs lower than her all-weather rating so she could take advantage of her lesser rating here to get back to winning way assuming she handles the testing ground back on this surface.

3:30 Catterick – Spindler And Hunter Handicap (For The Turmeric Challenge Trophy) Cl4 (3yo+ 0-85) 2m

BOLLIN NEIL has a good record here and is taken to get back to winning ways having been thwarted in his hat-trick attempt at Nottingham latest.

Tim Easterby’s charge handles soft ground well and his last two career wins have come at this venue including over this trip two runs ago when beating Selsey Sizzler by two lengths.

The Haafhd gelding could only finish third last time out but he was perhaps given too much to do and may have found the ground quick enough for him. But he returns to softer ground now and he’s reunited with Ella McCain who gets on well with him so it would be no surprise to see him bounce back here for all this is a tougher race.

Horse racing best bets. Tim Easterby can saddle a winner on the card at Catterick.

3:55 Lingfield – Download The At The Races App Nursery Handicap Cl4 (2yo 0-80) 5f

KING OF SPEED was never a factor when thrust into the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot for his last run, drawn low and weakening having raced prominently on the generally unfavoured far side.

Robert Cowell’s charge had run well the time before at Redcar when beating Barging Thru by a neck and the Acclamation colt might be capable of getting back on the winning trail here assuming he handles the much more testing ground.

He’s yet to run on a surface as soft as this but this is a big drop back in class and he can resume winning form if the conditions don’t catch him out with the form of that Norfolk Stakes looking pretty solid now.

4:15 Yarmouth – QuinnBet 2nd To The Favourite Special Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-85) 1m3½f

GOLDIE HAWK won three times last term on turf and the all-weather and it might be worth chancing the Golden Horn filly to get back on the scoresheet here for all she likely need to find some improvement.

Chris Wall’s charge has continued in good fettle this term, twice finishing runner-up at Windsor and Kempton before getting back to winning ways returned to Windsor latest where she had three-parts of a length to spare over Mafia Power.

That form looks fair and there could be more to come from her having been raised just 2lbs; but she does have to give 10lbs to the highly-promising hat-trick seeker Boltaway who sneaks in at the foot of the weights.

That one though steps up in trip and it could be worth chancing the selection to topple Roger Charlton’s charge given she’s proven at this distance and may yet have more to give.

4:40 Catterick – Racing Again 14th July Handicap (Div I) Cl6 (4yo+ 0-60) 7f

MOTAWAAZY has been in good form this term since returning to turf, finishing runner-up on her reappearance from a long absence before going one better at this venue in June where the Kingman gelding got the better of Fircombe Hall.

Michael Dods’ charge has since finished runner-up in both subsequent outings at Ayr and Beverley and the form of the Ayr run has seen the winner go in again so there might be better to come from here where he looks well in off his current mark.

He was beaten just over one length off this rating last time by Oh So Woke and he’s only due to go up 2lbs in future so could take advantage to resume winning ways if the softer ground doesn’t catch him out.

Horse racing best bets. Bath is one of the day’s UK racemeetings taking place.

5:05 Bath – Smiths Metal Centres Handicap Cl4 (3yo+ 0-80) 5f

BUY ME BACK has been in largely good form this year, winning three times with two on the all-weather and third coming latest where the Lethal Force filly scored by one length over Clashaniska at Windsor.

Mark Loughnane’s charge was building on a fair fifth at Lingfield on her return from three months off with that latest victory where she ran out a ready winner and the form looks fair given both the runner-up and third have made the frame in subsequent outings.

She has a bit more to do here from 4lbs higher in the weights than last time but there’s a suspicion she has a bigger performance in her and the four-year old has placed from higher marks in the past so could be capable of going close here.

5:35 Bath – Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap Cl6 (3yo+ 0-60) 1m2f

TREGONY has got better with each run, getting off the mark at Nottingham latest when beating Lady Ziana by one length and the New Bay filly can follow up here.

Clive Cox’s charge had finished third the time before at Windsor over one mile but appeared to appreciate the stiffer test latest when opening her account and there could be better to come from her now she’s off the mark.

The form of that victory looks fair despite it taking a couple of knocks since and a 5lbs rise might underestimate her potential for improvement over this longer trip so she could go well here and no surprise if she were to strike again.

6:15 Kempton – Unibet Extra Place Offers Every Day Handicap Cl5 (4yo+ 0-75) 2m

POTENZA won for the column a few days ago when scoring over course and distance from Mack The Knife and quickly turned out under a penalty the Born To Sea gelding can follow up.

Harry Eustace’s charge has been in good form this term, winning twice which also includes at Chester in May prior to a very good second behind East Asia at Newbury and that latest victory where he found plenty to get back on the scoresheet.

A 5lbs penalty will ask more of him as he’s turned out just seven days later but given his current good vein of form he looks worth chancing to defy his rise in the weights and strike again here.


7:15 Kempton – Unibet Casino Deposit £10 Get £40 Bonus Handicap (London Mile Series Qualifier) Cl6 (3yo 0-65) 1m

CREMA INGLESA stepped up on previous efforts when returning from more than eight months off to strike at Chepstow last month and open her win account; the Lope De Vega filly can follow up here.

Jamie Osborne’s charge was value for more than the official margin having appeared to idle in front but always doing enough to hold off the challengers under trainer’s daughter

Horse racing best bets. Kempton are racing in the evening on their all-weather surface.

fie Osborne who retains the ride here and the pair can combine again for another win.

The selection has only been raised 2lbs for what looked a comfortable win last time and while she might not get the same strength of pace this time around she looks as if she has more scope to improve than most of these and further progress should put her in the mix again.
