Wednesday’s 975/1 Lucky 15 – Our UK Racing Best Bets On August 3
Horse Racing Tips on Wednesday, August 3
There are five meetings spread across Britain on Wednesday, August 3rd with the action coming from Newcastle, Brighton, Pontefract, Yarmouth and Kempton. Our expert tipster has produced their best bets across the cards, which make up our advised Wednesday Lucky 15.
An Angel’s Dream (2.10 Brighton) 2/1
Richard Hannon sends AN ANGEL’S DREAM down to Brighton to contest their Star Construction And Maintenance Classified Stakes on Wednesday, and the filly appears to hold leading claims.
Although 0-6 in her career to date, this Middleham Park-owned 3yo bounced back from a couple of below-par all-weather efforts when a 50/1 sixth at Leicester a fortnight ago.
An Angel’s Dream raced in last for much of that contest, yet travelled through the contest well and looked disadvantaged by challenging by the far side rail, with the main action unfolding down the centre of the track.
That effort, therefore, looks upgrading, and a 2lb weights drop sneaks her into 0-50 Classified company here. She’s not only the highest rated in this field, but also benefits from the assistance of rider Alec Voikhansky’s 7lb claim, so at the weights appears to hold an exceptional chance of getting off the mark.

The Covex Kid (3.40 Brighton) 10/3
The Carlsberg Danish Pilsner Brighton Mile Challenge Handicap is the feature race at Brighton on Wednesday, and it is difficult to get away from the claims of the bang-in-form THE COVEX KID, who doesn’t look ready to stop his winning run.
This gelding has produced form figures of 111321 since joining current trainer Amy Murphy, justifying odds of 8/11F to land a course and distance handicap by 5l last month.
This is admittedly going to take a whole lot more winning, but as a 3yo The Covex Kid looks a good deal less exposed than most of these runners, and he really could have won as he pleased last time.
With that in mind, he’s taken to defy an 8lb rise in the weights and bring his record since joining this stable to an impressive 5-7.

Red Kite (4.20 Pontefract) 9/2
Pontefract is a track which favours front runners, and the pace angle in Wednesday’s Bet With Jayne – Your Local Bookmaker Handicap, RED KITE, rates the one to be with.
Charlie & Mark Johnston’s gelding took a small-field Brighton maiden on seasonal debut, and although he’s not managed to add to that in a pair of subsequent runs, he ran with credit in a Newmarket handicap last time out, being up on the front end throughout and battling on gamely for pressure to finish fourth.
He eases slightly in class here dropped to 0-70 company, despite still holding an official rating of 72, whilst the addition of blinkers is certainly interesting, particularly given his preference for front-running.
If the headgear manages to unlock even a small amount of improvement at this level, Red Kite looks certain to be bang there at the business end.

Viewfromthestars (4.40 Brighton) 9/2
The 6f Star Insurance Handicap may be a 3yos handicap, but we know plenty about these runners, and that makes the unexposed VIEWFROMTHESTARS of particular interest.
This son of Starspangledbanner cost 47,000 guineas at the breeze-ups last year, yet has made the track just three times for these connections.
His two runs this year (came on the back of a gelding operation) have shown promise, however, finishing fifth at Chelmsford when last seen back in May behind a quartet of horses now rated 84, 87, 78 and 87 respectively, that despite hanging right-handed.
On that showing, Viewfromthestars looks particularly interesting sent handicapping here off an opening mark of just 56, and being the sole runner on the card for Lambourn-based trainer Roger Teal, Viewfromthestars isn’t expected to be making the 220-mile round trip just to make up the numbers.
