Today’s Horse Racing Tips
Todays Racing Tip – GURKHA FRIEND
Time & Track – 4.20 Ascot (07/09)
Best Odds – 8/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – This gelding has been in good form on his last three outings winning twice before just losing out by a head from this mark at Ripon just over a week ago. The ground wouldn’t have suited this six-year old so the return to a better surface may well see him continue his progress with Andrea Atzeni an eye-catching jockey booking on first outing for Karen McLintock. He’s somewhat of a Ripon-specialist so will have to show that he can do it over this straight-mile but if taking to this new challenge then he’s got a good chance of adding to six previous handicap wins from a pound higher mark than when winning on penultimate outing.
Result – Lost
Todays Racing Tip – BOY IN THE BAR
Time & Track – 4.55 Ascot (07/09)
Best Odds – 13/2 @ Bet365
Stake – 2pt win
Analysis – This seven-year old won this race back in 2016 from the same mark as he’s running off here and was also partnered that day by James Doyle who takes the ride again. He’s a six time winner over six-furlongs and is very well-handicapped having won off marks both 2lb and 5lb higher in the past. A recent third beaten less than a length in a 0-105 at Goodwood is strong form and Ian William’s charge now drops back into 0-80 company for the first time since winning at Newcastle. He’s 3/7 in this grade and has won on a variety of ground so he should be thereabouts in a very open looking finale.
Result – Lost
