Todays Racing Tip – WILLYTHECONQUEROR
Time & Track – 4.25 Carlisle (22/08)
Best Odds – 16/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – Needs to bounce back from a lacklustre stable-debut at the start of the month in a higher grade conditions stakes (lost right hind shoe) but his form when with William Muir was strong, winning a class 2 handicap at Sandown in 2016 from a 6lb higher mark. He was highly thought of there as shown when competing in the Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes at Ascot when down the field (125/1) won by Lady Aurelia. This is his second start after a wind op and having gone well with cut in the ground before, I’m happy to give this gelding a chance as on his best form is a huge price back down in a grade in which he is 1/1 and with Clifford Lee claiming a further 3lb.
Result – Lost
Todays Racing Tip – PERSIAN MOON
Time & Track – 2.25 York(22/08)
Best Odds – 5/1 @ Ladbrokes
Stake – 3pt win
Analysis – Has ran with plenty of promise in four novice events to date and after a couple of two-and-a-half length defeats this colt comfortably scored at Yarmouth on good-to-firm by five-lengths before stepping up on that effort when winning over C&D in softer ground with a future winner just behind (front two pulled clear of remainder). Course form is key here and he’s versatile ground-wise and he could be the horse that gets Mark Johnston to that record-breaking tally of winners.
Result – Lost
Todays Racing Tip – PSYCHEDELIC ROCK
Time & Track – 6.00 Worcester (22/08)
Best Odds – 13/2 @ Bet365
Stake – 2pt win
Analysis – Lightly-raced seven-year old having only his tenth start in the UK. He won on stable debut over 2m here last year and has progressed nicely since going handicapping. He won over C&D in a class 2 event and has only put in one bad effort in that grade since. The longer trip may have been the excuse recently when beaten five-lengths but a previous head-defeat (again over C&D) looks solid form with the winner and 3rd both winning since. He drops in grade for this and I’d be surprised if he doesn’t at least place with capable 7lb-claimer Edward Austin the saddle on ground that suits.
Result – Won +13
