Todays Racing Tip - UPTOWN FUNK

Time & Track - 4.15 Perth (18/08) 

Best Odds - 11/4 @ Betfair

Stake - 3pt win

Analysis - Ran an almighty race in defeat at Cartmel last time out when getting caught in the dying strides over 2m6f under 3lb claimer Callum Bewley. He keeps the ride again and the drop back to 2m4f should suit this gelding who has been alternating between hurdling and flat so far this year. He goes on the ground and a repeat performance of that recent second from a 3lb higher mark would see this four-year old go close with him still unexposed in this sphere.

Todays Racing Tip - RAYMOND TUSK 

Time & Track - 2.25 Newbury (18/08)
Best Odds - 7/2 @ Bet365

Stake - 2pt win

Analysis - Arrives here after winning a listed event at Hamilton by over two-lengths last month over 1m3f and is now stepped up again in trip to the extended 1m5f. He won nicely on debut here over a mile and was deemed good enough to run in the Group 1 Coral-Eclipse at Sandown, despite beaten nine-lengths in sixth that was a hot race won by Roaring Lion with Saxon Warrior a close second. If seeing out this longer trip he’s sure to go well with weight-for-age allowance a major factor as well as Silvestre De Sousa doing the steering.

Todays Racing Tip - WINGED SPUR

Time & Track - 4.40 Newbury (18/08)  

Best Odds - 13/2 @ Bet365

Stake - 1pt win

Analysis - Has been in good form this summer having won three times (twice over this 1m2f trip) with the latest of those coming from a 4lb lower mark. He was beaten two-lengths last week at Brighton and the handicapper has eased him a pound for that run and the two prior runs to that were over different trips than today’s. It seems as though 1m2f is his optimum trip with form figures 7-1–2-2-1-3 and providing the ground stays on the good side (won twice on good) he’s got a chance.

 

Result - Lost
