Tuesday 3 September horse racing tips – Ryan’s 2/1 chance can bounce back to winning form at Salisbury
Brian Healy gives his race-by-race selections and best bets for Tuesday’s UK and Irish horse racing fixtures.
Tuesday sees four UK meetings going to post as racing in Ireland takes a day off, and there is afternoon horse racing action on the flat from the cards at Catterick and Goodwood.
Meanwhile, the evening action sees further flat racing on turf at Salisbury, while Kempton are racing on the all-weather.
Catterick (flat) – 2.00 – 5.40pm (8 races)
Goodwood (flat) – 2.15 – 5.35pm (7 races)
Salisbury (flat) – 4.50 – 7.30pm (6 races)
Kempton (flat, aw) – 5.45 – 8.45pm (7 races)
(2.30) SLOANE GARDEN (2/1, William Hill) improved on her debut third at Yarmouth back in July to go one place better at Lingfield latest, and with the likelihood of further improvement still to come James Tate’s filly can get off the mark now at the third attempt.
The Iffraaj filly was beaten two lengths behind easy Lady Bowthorpe on that occasion, but she had pulled clear of the rest and likely to progress further she ought to go well here as she bids to get off the mark at the third attempt.
(3.35) KINDLY (11/4, Bet365) probably needed the run when finishing third at Carlisle back in July on her first outing for new handler Mick Easterby; but she caught the eye travelling well for a long way before lack of fitness ultimately told, and likely to be sharper here with that run under her belt she could do better.
A dual-winner in Ireland for Johnny Levins last term, she has also struck wins for Simon Crisford early in her career and the Kyllachy mare can strip fitter for her return behind Gale Force Maya who has won twice since.
The runner-up and fourth horses home have both also registered subsequent wins, and she looks handicapped to go close here if building on that run so it wouldn’t come as a huge surprise to see her get firmly in the mix here.
2.00 – Arriba Arriba
2.30 – Sloane Garden
3.05 – Gemini
3.35 – Kindly
4.10 – Gin In The Inn
4.40 – Gylo
5.10 – Betty Grable
5.40 – Red Stripes
(2.45) CALL ME KATIE (5/2, William Hill) showed some ability amidst her inexperience when finishing third of seven runner on her debut at Newmarket back in August, and with that run under her belt John Gosden’s charge can get off the mark now at the second attempt.
The Kodiac filly was beaten around three lengths on that occasion behind a Godolphin pair, racing keenly for much of the way and making most until fading in the last furlong.
She showed a good deal of promise however, and she is likely to be sharper for that outing which won’t have been lost on her and she ought to progress so could prove a tough nut to crack if finding some further improvement.
(3.50) ANGEL GREY (3/1, Bet365) has improved with every start, bettering her finishing position each time and Andrew Balding’s charge can strike for a second time here.
Sixth on debut at Newbury, the Gutaifan filly subsequently progressed to finish fourth next time in a decent Newmarket contest before opening her account at the third attempt with a defeat of Seraphinite at Windsor in August where she ran out a comfortable three lengths’ winner.
A subsequent winner was behind her that day, while the runner-up has run well again since, and an opening mark of 79 on her handicap debut doesn’t look unduly harsh so she may be able to take advantage and win again under title-chasing Oisin Murphy.
2.15 – Affluence
2.45 – Call Me Katie
3.20 – Celtic Art
3.50 – Angel Grey
4.25 – Themaxwecan
5.00 – Silca Mistress
5.35 – Cadre Du Noir
(6.30) EMARAATY ANA (2/1, William Hill) hasn’t been seen at his best this term, but Kevin Ryan’s charge is a useful sort at his best and the Shamardal colt has been contesting in stronger races than this.
A dual-winner last term as a juvenile which included the Group Two Gimcrack Stakes, he subsequently finished a creditable fifth of eight runners behind Ten Sovereigns in the Middle Park Stakes on his final outing of the campaign.
He has possibly failed to see out one mile in starts in the English and Irish 2000 Guineas, and soft ground was likely against him when he contested the Cathedral Stakes over course and distance back in June.
He is forgiven that effort and he returns here following a break and encountering much more favourable conditions as he drops down in class where he could make his presence felt.
(7.00) 2016 Swinton Hurdle winner GWAFA (4/1, Paddy Power) has proven himself to be a capable performer on the level, and Peter Webber’s charge can get back to winning ways here having shaped well in a couple of previous outing on the flat this term.
Fifth over course and distance following a lengthy absence, the Tamayuz gelding found only one too good in Graceful Lady at Newmarket last month although he was no match for the winner.
A subsequent winner has come out of that race, while the winner and fourth have both run well in defeat, and he could benefit from this slightly shorter trip. He remains well-handicapped, and he chased home Dubawi Fifty from a higher mark on the all-weather last term, a repeat of which may be good enough to see him get back on the scoresheet on the level.
4.50 – Letmestopyouthere
5.25 – Raaeq
6.00 – Areehaa
6.30 – Emaraaty Ana
7.00 – Gwafa
7.30 – Giving Back
(6.45) HIGHFALUTING (5/2, Bet365) is lightly-raced for a five-year old, and the High Chaparral gelding had looked steadily progressive in the first half of the campaign where he twice found the frame in starts at Windsor and Nottingham before perhaps being stretched by twelve furlongs at Salisbury in June.
Given a break afterwards, James Eustace’s charge returned to action to strike over a mile at this venue last month, beating Tora Dorado by a nose, and he could follow up here having seen that form boosted since by a subsequent winner who had finished behind the selection.
A 3lbs rise in the weights looks fair, and he appeared to appreciate the lesser test of stamina where he kept on well to hold off a strong challenge from the runner-up. He ought to remain competitive despite his rise in the weights and every chance he can strike again having proven he can handle this surface and racing from a good draw.
(7.45) NAME THE WIND (9/2, William Hill) is 2-2 at this venue, and James Tate’s charge can bounce back returned to this track having struggled to get competitive in recent outings.
The Toronado colt struck on each of his first two career starts, one of which came over this trip back in April having also struck here as a juvenile.He subsequently cut no ice in the Qipco 2000 Guineas, and he has been disappointing since in three other runs.
However, a return to this venue could spark a revival of fortunes, and the handicapper has dropped him 3lbs in the weights as a result of his struggles which he may well be able to take advantage of.
5.45 – Grace Plunkett
6.15 – Mubakker
6.45 – Highfaluting
7.15 – Stormbomber
7.45 – Name The Wind
