Wednesday’s 6,354/1 Lucky 15 – Our UK Racing Best Bets On December 1
Horse Racing Tips on Wednesday, December 1
There are three meetings spread across Britain on Wednesday with the action coming from Lingfield, Haydock and Kempton. Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across the Wednesday cards, which make up our advised Wednesday Lucky 15.
My Ambition (12.20 Lingfield)
The Denis Coakley trained MY AMBITION looks particularly interesting in Lingfield’s 7f nursery. This Galileo Gold colt appeared to improve for the switch to more patient tactics at Kempton last month, where he caught the eye staying on strongly into fourth.
My Ambition occupied the same finishing position in a Newmarket novice back in July and that form has worked out exceptionally well since with the front two both holding triple-figure ratings and the third rated 87.
That run in isolation makes My Ambition look particularly well-treated off a mark of 57, and the booking of Cieren Fallon, who is 2-4 when riding on the all-weather for this yard, is a notable one.
Cry Havoc (12.50 Lingfield)
The 3yo runners dominate the top of the market for this 7f fillies’ handicap but none of these look particularly thrown in off their current marks and that could open the door for CRY HAVOC.
Rae Guest’s filly had some particularly strong form to her name last year, including a victory in 0-105 company at Chelmsford. She has failed to add to that in four starts since but shaped as though she could be running back into form at Kempton last time.
Cry Havoc has now dropped to a mark of 86, which is a pound lower than her Chelmsford rating, and that makes her a solid betting proposition back running against her own sex and returned to a 0-90 handicap.
Osprey Call (3.20 Haydock)
OSPREY CALL rates as the one to beat in this 2m3f handicap hurdle. Alastair Ralph’s charge had some smart form to his name in novice company last season and he was backed as though a big run was expected on his seasonal/handicap debut at Newbury last month.
Osprey Call still looked well in contention before falling three out that day and should his confidence prove unaffected by that spill he looks a big player off his current mark of 122 – particularly with this step up in trip expected to unlock some improvement.
Olympic Eagle (4.30 Kempton)
Clive Cox appears to hold solid claims in Kempton’s 6f nursery courtesy of OLYMPIC EAGLE.
This Gleneagles colt is out of an all-weather sprint winner and from the family of the owner’s very own sprint superstar Lochsong. He finished less than 3l off the 108-rated Hierarchy at Salisbury on debut back in August and ran a solid race in defeat on handicap debut last time out when third over course and distance.
He raced a little wider than ideal that day and that probably softened him up at the business end of the race. With a better draw to his advantage here in stall 3, however, it is hoped that he will be able to gain a better track position and, in turn, improve a couple of places on that recent run.
