Todays Racing Tip – ICE SLICE
Time & Track – 7.40 Wetherby (06/06)
Best Odds – 8/1 @ Ladbrokes
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – A wide-open handicap and cases can be made for plenty but it’s James Eustace’s gelding who gets my vote. All seven career wins have either come over this mile-trip or over half a furlong further or shorter. hasn’t won since July 2016 and has now dropped to a nice mark, one in which he’s won off previously on this good-to-firm ground. He’s 9lb below his highest winning mark and has ran with real credit off even higher marks in class 2 handicaps. Reappearance run wasn’t discouraging and has won three times on second outing after a break so there’s reason to believe that he can do it again here with Sebastian Woods claiming a further 5lb.
Result – Lost
Todays Racing Tip – STRAIGHT ASH
Time & Track – 9.10 Wetherby (06/06)
Best Odds – 4/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 2pt win
Analysis – Went down by just under a length to an 80-rated rival when receiving only 4lb in a claimer last week at Leicester over seven-furlongs and last year, although not placing, wasn’t beaten far in three class 5 handicaps when running off marks in the low 70’s. He drops into class 6 company off a mark of only 58 and the useful Rossa Ryan takes off a further 5lb with his claim and Richard Hannon has a 25% strike-rate when visiting this course. This looks a good opportunity to open his account in handicaps in what looks a weak looking contest.
Result – Lost
