Tuesday 24 September horse racing tips – Williams’ 5/2 chance can be Belle of Chelmsford ball
Brian Healy gives his race by race selections and best bets for all of Thursday’s UK and Irish horse racing meetings.
Four UK and Irish horse racing fixtures go to post on Tuesday, with afternoon action on the flat from Lingfield on polytrack, and also Beverley on turf; while Chelmsford also hosts an evening fixture on their all-weather surface.
Meanwhile, over the sticks there is a fixture at Warwick to complete the Tuesday line-up.
Lingfield (flat, aw) – 1.50 – 5.05pm (7 races)
Beverley (flat) – 2.00 – 5.45pm (8 races)
Warwick (jumps) – 2.10 – 4.55pm (6 races)
Chelmsford (flat,aw) – 5.25 – 8.30pm (7 races)
(2.20) Those with the benefit of prior experience in this contest don’t set the bar particularly high, but nevertheless INCA MAN (7/2, William Hill) could be worth chancing to get off the mark at the third attempt.
The Rajsaman colt finished a fair third on debut at Epsom in August, beaten just over one length behind Bodyline, and Paul Cole’s charge matched that level of form despite only finishing fifth at Deauville latest.
Those runs arguably set the form standard in this contest, and although he could prove vulnerable to one of the newcomers from some top yards, he may be able to put his experience to good use to open his account.
(3.25) BROGANS BAY (11/4, Bet365) got back on track after a few lesser efforts when finding only one too good latest, and the Born To Sea filly can get back to winning ways here.
Simon Dow’s charge was a winner at this venue back in June, beating Exceedingly Diva; although she disappointed subsequently, she bounced back last time with a better effort which saw her finish just one length behind Kinglami at Wolverhampton.
Possibly made too much use of on that occasion over six furlongs, a similar effort back at the minimum trip could yield dividends this time around and she may be worth chancing to resume winning ways.
1.50 – Scheme
2.20 – Inca Man
2.55 – Airbrush
3.25 – Brogans Bay
4.00 – Casa Comingo
4.30 – Nsnas
5.05 – Sweet Charity
(2.30) BERTIE’S PRINCESS (16/1, Bet365, each-way) has only once finished outside the frame, which came on debut at Pontefract; but Nigel Tinkler’s charge could be worth chancing to open her account here for all she probably needs to find a bit more improvement.
The Lawman filly finished runner-up latest behind Flylikeaneagle over this course and distance six days ago, beaten around four lengths, and a repeat of that effort ought to put her in the mix once again.
The most experienced of this field with five starts under her belt, she is more exposed than her rivals and could be vulnerable in this field; but it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see her continue to run well, and if she can find a shade more progress then perhaps she can open her account in this contest.
(3.05) DUBAI ACCLAIM (6/1, William Hill) got reward for some creditable efforts when getting back to winning ways at Doncaster earlier in the month, and Richard Fahey’s charge can follow up here.
That success came in the Legends’ race, scoring under Sammy Jo Bell to better previous back-to-back runner efforts, and that form has since been boosted with the second horse home going on to win next time out; while the third, fifth and eighth horses have all made the frame on their next starts.
First-time cheekpieces appeared to focus his energies, and he travelled well throughout the contest before showing he had enough in reserve to hold off the second. His subsequent 3lbs rise in the weights for that win is offset by his rider’s claim so he can effectively compete here from the same mark as at Doncaster, and a repeat of that effort could prove good enough here.
2.00 – Rebel Soldier Boy
2.30 – Bertie’s Princess
3.05 – Dubai Acclaim
3.35 – Kyllang Rock
4.10 – Northern Lyte
4.40 – Junooh
5.15 – Thorntoun Care
5.45 – Rosy Ryan
(2.45) SUPAKALANISTIC (11/4, Ladbrokes) was a winner back in January at Ludlow, and although he disappointed in his next couple of outings he came back with a better effort when last seen at this venue where she finished third behind Blairs Cove.
Also a winner at Southwell earlier in her career, Nigel Twiston-Davies’ charge was beaten four lengths in that last outing but hasn’t been seen out since. However, she had four subsequent winners beaten behind her, and she could find some improvement on her return to action where she tackles fences for the first time.
Thrust straight into a handicap in this discipline she can compete from the same mark as when last seen out over hurdles, and with the potential to do well over the larger obstacles she could be worth chancing.
(3.15) SID HOODIE (4/1, Bet365) has shown some fair form and arrives here in good heart having won last time out, and the Rip Van Winkle mare can follow up here.
Charlie Mann’s charge struck at Uttoxeter latest, beating Timassini in game fashion, and a 4lbs rise in the weights is workable on that evidence as she goes up in trip.
Also a winner at Fakenham back in April she can give a good account at this venue, and she has a good record in this headgear combination so may well do better still.
2.10 – Chestnut Pete
2.45 – Supakalanistic
3.15 – Sid Hoodie
3.50 – Dr Robin
4.20 – Primogeniture
4.55 – Redford Road
(5.25) BELLE ANGLAISE (5/2, William Hill) won a shade readily at Brighton last time out, building on a fair debut to run out a neck winner over Daily Times; Stuart Williams’ charge can follow up here with her penalty for that success negated by the claim of rising star Marco Ghiani.
Having finished sixth at Windsor on debut, the Cable Bay filly showed the benefit of that run to get up late for the win at Brighton latest, with the front two pulling clear of the rest of the field.
She has an extra furlong to travel here, but the longer distance could unlock further improvement and having won well latest she could have better still to come so is taken to win again in a relatively ordinary heat assuming she handles the switch to this surface from grass.
(6.00) OSLO (5/2, Bet365) may not be one of Sir Michael Stoute’s leading lights, but the Gleneagles gelding could be worth sticking with on the back of an improved effort at Goodwood back in August.
There, he finished around seven lengths’ third behind Volkan Star having been stepped up to one mile; and he himself pulled clear of the rest of the rest of the field although like the runner-up in that race was no match for the easy winner who looked a smart prospect.
Now tried in a handicap having been gelded, he wears a visor for the first time here and he could have more to offer now were he features from a mark of 75 which might well prove lenient given that he is bred to be a good bit better than he’s shown thus far.
Still, open to further improvement for powerful connections he is worth chancing in the headgear for the first time to get off the mark.
4.50 – Raahy
5.25 – Belle Anglaise
6.00 – Oslo
6.30 – Red Cossack
7.00 – Sharp Operator
7.30 – Aljar
8.00 – Desert Fox
8.30 – Spice War
