Todays Racing Tip – SHANAWAY
Time & Track – 2.40 Perth (05/07)
Best Odds – 10/1 @ William Hill
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – 0/15 so far but ran two solid races on only two starts at this course back in the spring. He was beaten by Our Morris bu just over a length but re-opposes on better term here and is unexposed over this three-mile trip. His prior effort was over two-and-a-half in this grade when again second and the addition of this new headgear combination could eke out the required improvement to make it third time lucky here. He’ll have to put a lacklustre Cartmel effort behind him but there’s a good possibility that he just didn’t enjoy the quirkiness of that track and back here he could go well at nice odds.
Result – Lost
Todays Racing Tip – ICONIC KNIGHT
Time & Track – 5.40 Newbury (05/07)
Best Odds – 10/3 @ William Hill
Stake – 3pt win
Analysis – This geeing’s only victory came over this five-furlong at Windsor on his final start of last year in a Novice event and two recent efforts both over this trip in handicaps have been respectable. He was third at Windsor on penultimate start beaten less than a length and the form of that race has worked out well with a couple of subsequent winners coming out of the race and a more recent second at Haydock (both from this mark of 72) suggests that his turn to win again is close. They were both in 0-85 handicaps and he’s now been dropped into a 0-70 but Oliver Stammers claims a handy 5lb and with ground to suit this three-year old can continue this yards good run of form (22% strike-rate in past 14 days).
Result – Won +10
Todays Racing Tip – KILBREE KID
Time & Track – 4.10 Perth (05/07)
Best Odds – 6/1 @ William Hill
Stake – 2pt win
Analysis – Was very disappointing in a class 2 Hunter Chase at Stratford recently over a longer trip but that’s the third time he’s underperformed at the Warwickshire track and his record over this C&D reads very well indeed with form figures 1-5-2-1-2-1-1-1-5-3. He’s still 3lb lower than his highest winning mark and also won from this mark of 125 on this day here last year so if able to put that test effort behind him ten he’s handicapped to go very close back at his favoured track and if doing so he looks overpriced.
Result – Lost
