Wednesday’s 9,179/1 Lucky 15 – Our UK Racing Best Bets On June 1
Horse Racing Tips on Wednesday, June 1
There are five meetings spread across Britain on Wednesday, June 1st with the action coming from Newton Abbot, Nottingham, Cartmel, Ripon and Kempton. Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across the cards, which make up our advised Wednesday Lucky 15.
Priscilla’s Wish (1.20 Nottingham) 6/1
Nottingham’s Wednesday card kicks off with the Follow @racingtv On Twitter “Hands And Heels” Apprentice Handicap, an extended 1m contest in which PRISCILLA’S WISH catches the eye for trainer Philip McBride and jockey Liam Wright.
This daughter of Adaay was twice a winner last year, the most recent success coming at Yarmouth off a mark just 1lb below her current rating of 51.
Priscilla’s Wish showed herself to be in good heart when runner-up at Brighton on penultimate run, and although only seventh at Chelmsford subsequently, that effort looks best forgiven considering that her record on an artificial surface now reads 0-10.
Back on turf with a 5lb claimer (who has ridden two winners already this season) enlisted, an improved showing is expected from Priscilla’s Wish.

Cherry Cola (2.30 Nottingham) 8/1
Nottingham’s Join RacingTV Now Handicap is a 1m6f contest and one that looks a fair bit more open than the market suggests. Favourite Mukha Magic was a winner last time, but he was on a 19-race losing sequence prior to that so looks no good thing to go in again. Beggarman ideally needs further whilst Russian Rumour has developed a tendency of bumping into one.
A chance, therefore, is taken on CHERRY COLA for Sussex-based trainer Sheena West.
This mare gained her last win over this course and distance and she now finds herself just a pound above that winning mark.
Cherry Cola made an eye-catching seasonal reappearance when a 28/1 third in a 0-80 Goodwood handicap back in April. It’s best to put a line through Cherry Cola’s subsequent seventh back at that track, which came on ground far softer than Cherry Cola appreciates.
Back on a better surface here and dropped into 0-65 company for the first time since last May, Cherry Cola rates the value play.

Jet Set Go (3.00 Nottingham) 15/2
It’s coming up for 12 months since Seb Spencer last sent out a winner, yet the trainer could be about to break his losing streak on Wednesday afternoon with JET SET GO, who lines up in Nottingham’s Watch On Racing TV Fillies’ Handicap.
This 7yo went close at Catterick back in September and she now finds herself 5lb below that mark. That weights drop has admittedly come after a trio of below-par showings, but one of those efforts came on the all-weather (which Jet Set Go doesn’t appear to handle) and her last of eight on seasonal debut at Beverley last week is easily forgiven as Jet Set Go’s saddle slipped badly and she was effectively unrideable.
Jet Set Go wasn’t unsupported in the market that day, so it can be assumed connections were hoping for a decent showing. Although ultimately frustrating, it could prove a blessing in disguise here, as Jet Set Go’s career-best RPR came on her only previous run over this course and distance.
Ray Dawson looks like a fairly notable booking in the saddle for Jet Set Go and a quick glance through her list of opponents for Wednesday shows a field of runners with plenty to prove between them.

Your Love Is King (4.00 Nottingham) 9/1
Nottingham’s 1m2f Visit racingtv.com Handicap sees a fascinating runner in Raihaan, who remains unexposed for the Gary Moore yard and was backed in a Kempton handicap last time as though better was expected of him than his seventh-place finish.
At a bigger price, however, a chance is taken on YOUR LOVE IS KING, whose sole win from ten starts for Michael Bell came over this course and distance.
The gelding’s last start for that yard once again came at this venue, when ultimately beaten just a head by a horse who won his next start (now officially rated 9lb higher). Your Love Is King himself is 1lb lower, and although well held on stable debut at Wolverhampton in April, that run came over an extended 2m, which appeared to stretch Your Love Is King’s stamina.
Dropping back to 1m2f looks a big plus for Your Love Is King, and it’s notable that connections refit a visor, headgear which the 4yo wore when scoring at this track.
