Today’s Horse Racing Tips
Sandown Las Tips –
3.30 – Sandown– ALINSTANTE (Bet now at 13/2 with Paddy Power) hails from the in-form Sir Mark Prescott team and heads here off the back of a decent win last time out at Chelmsford. Yes, this will be harder upped in class, but the yard boast a decent 31% record with their runners at the track and is taken to run a big race under Luke Morris.
BET NOW – ALINSTANTE (e/w)
4.00 – Sandown – A tricky handicap here, but we’ll take a chance with INDELIBLE INK (Bet now at 4/1 with Bet365) doing the business for the Sir Michael Stoute team. The yard have won this race three times since 2007 and although their runner is still a maiden he’s runs some fair races in defeat and gets weight all-round here. He’s run well here before and the drop back to 1m2f is a plus.
BET NOW – INDELIBLE INK
Wolverhampton Tips –
2.30– Wolverhampton – Trainer Rae Guest does very well with his fillies and with a 25% record at the track with his runners then his SECRET PALACE (Bet now at 7/2 with William Hill) is the one that stands out here. She was an excellent second last time out at Lingfield, albeit beaten 8 lengths, but it’s interesting they drop her back in trip and in what looks a weak affair looks the one to beat.
BET NOW – SECRET PALACE
4.10 – Wolverhampton – Again not the best of races, so it could pay to stick with a trainer we know des well here at the course. Step forward Ed Walker. He’s got a 20% record here and runs GOODNIGHTSUZY (Bet now at 5/1 with Paddy Power). The horse was well beaten last time but didn’t seem to stay the 1m2f trip at Sandown and so the return to a mile is a big plus. This is also her first run on the AW, but breeding suggests it will suit too.
BET NOW – GOODNIGHTSUZY
Worcester Tips –
3.15 – Worcester – John Ferguson’s ENNISTOWN (Bet now at 1/3 with Skybet) was a very easy winner last time out here over CD the fact the yard took the race 12 months ago is a further plus. The horse might have slightly better opposition here, but he travelled well that day and won with any amount in-hand.
BET NOW – ENNISTOWN
3.50 – Worcester – Another race that John Ferguson has a good chance in with Father Edward, but it might be worth chancing Brian Ellison’s MOYODE WOOD (Bet now at 20/1 with Paddy Power). The Brian Ellison team have an excellent 50% record here with their runners and despite not running for 152 days and being a 10 year-old with that decent stable track stat is worth a second glance.
BET NOW – MOYODE WOOD (e/w)
Newbury Tips –
5.30 – Newbury – Not a race we’d normally get involved in, but with trainer Ron Hodges having a 43% record here at the track then his runner BALLYHEIGUE (Bet now at 28/1 with William Hill) is the call. The horse has to put some bad runs behind him, but has dropped to a very decent mark and the jockey gets on well with him – has ridden him on 10 of his last 11 starts.
BET NOW – BALLYHEIGUE (e/w)
6.00 – Newbury – John Gosden has booked Frankie Dettori to ride his FORCE (Bet now at 5/2 with Coral) here and after running fifth of 12 in a Listed race last time is expected to find this easier. The drop in trip will suit and the yard are 7 from 33 with their juveniles at the course.
BET NOW – FORCE
Doncaster Tips –
5.45 – Doncaster – This looks a good opportunity for Roger Varian’s ALMOHTASEB (Bet now at 8/11 with Bet365) to get off the mark. This 3 year-old has been improving by the race and comes here off the back of an improved second last time out at Salisbury.
BET NOW – ALMOHTASEB
9.00 – Doncaster– All The Winds and CLOUD MONKEY (Bet now at 7/2 with Coral) head here in cracking order, but preference is for the last-named. A course winner last time out and is only been put up 3lbs for that by the handicapper. Barry McHugh rides and should make a bold bid in landing the three-timer.
BET NOW – CLOUD MONKEY
