Today’s Horse Racing Tips
Ayr Racing Tips –
3.00 – Ayr– With a decent 35% record with his runners at the track then trainer Adrian Paul Keatley’s LADY RANGER (Bet 4/1 here with Paddy Power) is the call here. A good second last time out and gets in here off the same mark – the winner of that last race has since franked the form by winning again.
BET NOW – LADY RANGER (e/w)
4.30 – Ayr– The O’Meara and Fahey yards have won this race in the past so their runners – First Sitting and Mica Mika – are interesting. However, we’ll take a chance on John Quinn’s FINAL COUNTDOWN (Bet here at 9/1 with Betfair) here. The stable do well here with a 28% record at the course, while the horse should be better for the slightly easier ground.
BET NOW – FINAL COUNTDOWN (e/w)
Wolverhampton RacingTips –
2.45 – Wolverhampton – Not the best of races, but HOT STUFF (Bet here at 9/2 with Betfred) is the call here. George Baker does well at the track and after just two career runs heads here unexposed. The horse was highly-tried last time out in the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot, but is clearly well-regarded for connections to pitch him at that level so early on in his career.
BET NOW – HOT STUFF (e/w)
3.15 – Wolverhampton – ELECTROSTATIC (Bet here at 15/2 with Betway) is unraced but the Charles Hills yard won this race 12 months ago so its interesting they target another to run in the race. This well-bred 2 year-old might want further in time (looking at breeding), but has obviously shown enough pace for connections to run over this 5f trip.
BET NOW – ELECTROSTATIC (e/w)
Thirsk Racing Tips –
6.00 – Thirsk – I expect better from Tawayna, but the one we like here is POINT OF WOODS (Bet here at 9/2 with Ladbrokes). The horse was a good second last time out at York in a fair-looking maiden, but was only just touched-off and in this easier-looking race can go well – the Ralph Beckett yard are 3 from 6 here too.
BET NOW – POINT OF WOODS (9/2)
7.00 – Thirsk – William Haggas’ FOREIGN DIPLOMAT (Bet here at 9/2 with Coral) stands out here. The horse is a course winner but has since been running well in better races and it’s interesting that connections drop the horse back to the minimum trip.
BET NOW – FOREIGN DIPLOMAT (e/w)
8.30 – Thirsk – SHAMLAN (Bet here at 3/1 with Boylesports), from the in-form Roger Varian yard, is worth chancing here. The horse makes his debut in what doesn’t look the best of races and the fact the stable send the horse up this far is interesting. The yard also boast an impressive 26% record at the track with their runners.
BET NOW – SHAMLAN
Windsor Racing Tips –
7.50 – Windsor – SMARTIE ARTIE (Bet here at 3/1 with 888 Sport) was a nice CD winner last time out for the Jeremey Noseda yard and we think he can follow-up here. The horse won by 2 ½ lengths that day and with this being just his fourth career start there should be more to come.
BET NOW – SMARTIE ARTIE
8.20 – Windsor – Fleckerl won well last time and is one for the shortlist, but Richard Fahey’s DEVIOUS SPIRIT (Bet here at 7/1 with Betfred) gets a lot of weight all round and the yard do well with the runners they send down here. The horse wasn’t beaten far last time out but has only had six career outings and looks to have more to come.
BET NOW – DEVIOUS SPIRIT (e/w)
