4:20 Doncaster Racing Tips (12th September)

DONCASTER 4.20 (8.1) 

The going at Doncaster certainly wasn't good to firm on Wednesday despite what the official going report said so I'm hoping it dries out somewhat before today's (Thursday) racing starts. With 17 runners this race will be hard to solve, topweight Poyle Vinnie is 3rd best on my figures but it isn't at ease if there's a fast early pace, Lucky Beggar is well-weighted and comes out 2nd best but this one seems to need genuine g/f ground to show its best, the early pace could come from The Armed Man but I doubt it will be in front on the line and one that should be staying on strongly at the finish is MUJASSAM 20/1 and this one might hopefully be worth a small each-way wager in this race.

5:05 Ascot Racing Tips (7th September)

Ascot horse racing tips
ASCOT 5.05 (7.2)

If they all run there will be 4 places for an each way bet and ive got it narrowed down to 2 that could feasibly win this race in Blue De Vega and Texting and they are not far behind the 4 that I will concentrate on, Moonraker is my original top rated but it does find the distance a bit too short unless theres a fast early pace so this race might not be run to suit, Royal Birth is being ridden by a 7lb claiming apprentice which is the same with all of my top 3 ratings, and this one could make the frame and maybe worth an each way punt at a decent price, Grandfather Tom is in cracking form but will be one of the favourites but could go close but im going to stick my neck out and go with the 3-year-old THEGREATESTSHOWMAN 14/1 who can be held up or track the leaders and in stall 10 it looks to drawn next door to Heritage the one that looks a good candidate to take up the pace setting role so it could get a good tow into the race and then have the first crack at the leader and stay on the stronger at the finish.

4:40 Ascot Racing Tips (6th September)

Eric Winner's Secret Tips
ASCOT 4.40 (7.2) 

There looks to be plenty of early pace in this race so it should be a true run affair, there is a few 3-year-olds or relatively lightly raced sorts that could improve but lets hope that's not today and maybe Total Commitment will make others better value that they should be, the race it won at Newmarket was a very slow affair so not 100% sure the form is that good but if its a rapidly improving sort it could scoot in again but I will be going against it, Equiano Springs could go well from those that like to be at the front of the field as could Doc Sportello, Lightning Charlie and A Sure Welcome, Big Lachie and Cent Flying have good speed figures but this looks a harder race for them and my money will be riding on MIRACLE OF MEDINAH 25/1 who likes to track the pacesetters and then stay on resolutely and I'm hoping the apprentices 7lb claim can further swing things in its favour and could be worth an each-way punt.

5:25 Catterick Racing Tips (28th August)

CATTERICK 5.25 (8.4) 

Speed figure wise this looks a good race for a class 5 affair and I've found 4 runners of interest, I backed Naadirr last time out when it finished 2nd but I doubt it will as much value this time out and it has to overcome a losing run of 11, Amazing Grazing is on a losing run of 17 and if there's a fast early on an undulating course like this one it can struggle to stay the distance, Lucky Beggar recorded a fast time at Doncaster earlier this year but might not be as at home on this course, my money will be riding on SPIRIT OF WEDZA 10/1 who likes this type of course and so does the trainer who has an over 30% win rate at this course and the 7lb apprentice has a reasonable 15% win rate on this stables older horses and it has been known to lead before and there's not much else known early pace in this race so I'm hoping it leads from start to finish to get back to winning ways.

3:45 Carlisle Racing Tips (21st August)

Carlisle horse racing tips
CARLISLE 3.45 (7.7)

For a class 4 race this doesn't look the greatest especially with quite a few unexposed types which always muddies the waters and any stakes are automatically dropped to a lower level but the topweight GRACIOUS JOHN 11/1 has a time from Haydock last year that puts it quite a few spots clear and this is a dropped in class to its usual runs and will be carrying some of my hard-earned dosh and at the price it will be in the shape of an each-way wager. 

Gracious John 12/1 5th 

BATH 5.15 

This looks a quite competitive affair and there's 3 front running types so it should be a true run affair, King Crimson 4/1 is my 3rd top-rated so could do best of the frontrunners and could make the frame, Storm Melody 8/1 comes out 2nd best and this one likes to track the leaders before keeping on strongly at the finish but I do have NAADIRR 10/1 as my top rated and this one likes to be held up for a late run and this race could be run to suit its style and with a clear run could get back to winning ways here, I will be having a bet on all of my top 3 ratings but tilted in favour of my top-rated selection.

Naadirr 10/1 2nd

8:05 Chelmsford Racing Tips (9th August)

CHELMSFORD 8.05

In this race one near the bottom Papa Delta 6/1 is capable of running a fast time but usually in one class lower races, the only known front runner is Poeta Brasileiro 4/1 joint-favourite but it would need to improve on its only run over this c/d and is held by the topweight Zapper Cass and the time that day was on the slow side so it makes it look poor value in my opinion, Dark Side Dream 20/1 would be competitive on its best time from 2018 but hasn't shown much so far this year but could be a good each-way punt if it does spring back to form, Daring Guest 13/2 is another that could be thereabouts at the finish if reproducing its best time but my money will be riding on DESERT FOX 10/1 hoping it can get a clear run when it matters and stay on the strongest at the finish and at the price it has to be an each-way wager.

5:15 Yarmouth Racing Tips (7th August)

Great Yarmouth horse racing Tips
YARMOUTH 5.15 (7.4)

An eight runner race with 2 that like to lead and Haveoneyerself is one of these leaders and my 3rd top-rated so could go well from the front, the topweight Perfect Charm has won its last 2 races and carries a 12lb penalty here before it gets a new official handicap rating it should go well while its in form but my money will be on BRONZE BEAU 9/1 who is my top-rated using this years times and has a 4lb higher rating from 2018 and it could prove very hard to catch if getting to the front and at the price and as long as all 8 runners take part I will be having a decent each-way wager. 

Bronze Beau 9/1 2nd

4:10 Catterick Racing Tips (6th August)

CATTERICK 4.10 Div2 

Division 2 is even worse if that was possible but again I've found 3 with recorded times Cupids Arrow is 3rd top but its time was recorded this year at Thirsk in top spot overall is Someone Exciting who did its best time last year at Redcar but the apprentice jockey booked is 1-18 for this stable which doesn't inspire any confidence and it would only be 2nd top-rated without the 5lb claim so I will treat it as a negative which will mean me having a small wager on B FIFTY TWO 10/1 who is a hold up type and should be trying to stay on at the finish but the losing run of 24 is limiting the strength of my stake as is the jockeys 0-15 for this stable.

2:50 Thirsk Racing Tips (3rd August)

Thirsk racecourse and tips
THIRSK 2.50 (7.9) 

Just Glamorous is my 2nd top-rated on just 2019 times and one of only 2 known front runners in the race, Alsvinder is the other possible pacesetter and is my 2nd top-rated on a time it recorded at Hamilton in 2018, so both could go well from the front but I do have Henley rated joint top using a 2018 time but he other top-rated horse CANFORD BAY 14/1 did its best time this year so will be carrying my money as an each-way bet. 

Canford Bay 14/1 8th 

LINGFIELD 6.35 (7.1)

There's a lot of horses that are either 3-year-olds or lightly run animals that could be capable of improvement which automatically reduces my stakes, I will be risking a bet on my top-rated selection *BROCKEY RISE 14/1 as long as it represents some value in the betting but it will be a smallish bet and I am hoping it's going to be an each-way price, which happily it is. 

* NR

Note: If betting, keep an eye on the going and the stick reading as given. No bet it the ground turns testing.
