Today’s Horse Racing Tips
Todays Racing Tip – SERGI PROKOFIEV
Time & Track – 1.50 Newmarket (12/10)
Best Odds – 5/1 @ Coral
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – This colt was a very good third in the Group 2 Coventry Stakes at the royal meeting over six-furlongs but has been comfortably held in two Group 1’s since, both over the same trip. Connections have decided to drop him back to the minimum trip for this Group 3, he was just touched off by a short-head on debut before easily landing a double (a novice by 7-lengths and a listed race by 4-lengths) so the return to five-furlongs might well be what’s needed for this two-year old to get back in the winners’ enclosure, ground not a worry.
Result – Won +5
Todays Racing Tip – CANFORD HEIGHTS
Time & Track – 3.50 York (12/10)
Best Odds – 4/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 3pt win
Analysis – Was very impressive on handicap debut at Haydock at the end of last month when trying this 1m6f trip for the first time. He won by over four-lengths though you could have called him the winner a couple of furlongs from home and though up 8lb there should be plenty more improvement forthcoming from this three-year old and he is taken to turn over the shorter-priced favourite. William Haggas could well have run him at his local track Newmarket but has decided to make the six-hour round trip up to York and the booking of Andrea Atzeni is a good one.
Result – Lost
Todays Racing Tip – D’BAI
Time & Track – 3.00 Newmarket (12/10)
Best Odds – 10/3 @ William Hill
Stake – 2pt win
Analysis – I’ve followed this horse throughout the summer where he’s been unlucky to only have won the once from seven runs between here and in France. That win was a Group 3 at Haydock back in June over this seven-furlong trip and despite winning twice over a mile I feel this is his best trip. This four-year old was unlucky at Goodwood when the gaps just didn’t appear at the right time and went even closer the last day at Doncaster when beaten by a neck to Mustashry who has since franked the form by winning a Group 2 here. The ground won’t be an issue having won on various going and his trainer is in good form (30% strike-rate past two months).
Result – Lost
