Today’s Horse Racing Tips
Todays Racing Tip – MRS GALLAGHER
Time & Track – 4.10 Ayr (23/06)
Best Odds – 7/2 @ Bet365
Stake – 3pt win
Analysis – Won on debut before beaten six-lengths in last year’s Queen Mary Stakes at the royal meeting (was 1st of 6 in her group) and has since continued to run well under today’s jockey Josephine Gordon. She’s won 2/3 in listed company (at Bath and Naas) and was always going to be difficult to land a blow in the group 2 Temple Stakes the last day at Haydock won by subsequent King’s Stand 2nd Battaash. She’s now back into listed company on ground that suits and if putting her best foot forward should be hard to peg back and make the long journey from Newmarket worthwhile with her coming out best on official ratings and receiving 3lb from most of her market rivals.
Result – Lost
Todays Racing Tip – MERCHANT NAVY
Time & Track – 4.20 Ascot (23/06)
Best Odds – 4/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 2pt win
Analysis – A high class renewal of this race with Harry Angel the one to beat but all four of his starts at Ascot have resulted in defeat so I think it’s worth taking him on with A P O’Brien’s new recruit who won the group 2 Greenlands Stakes at The Curragh on stable debut. He was beaten on last start over in Australia by the re-opposing Redkirk Warrior when receiving 15lbs in a handicap but he’s only a three-year old who is still open to plenty of improvement and now at a new yard can hopefully turn the tables. Likes the quick ground so shouldn’t be far away.
Result – Won +4
Todays Racing Tip – QUEEN OF BERMUDA
Time & Track – 3.40 Ascot (23/06)
Best Odds – 6/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – Ran a solid race over C&D on debut in a maiden which was won by Shades Of Blue (who was beaten a head in the Queen Mary on Wednesday) and she’s gone on to win her next two starts pretty cosily. She comes from a strong yard in William Haggas and the booking of James Doyle looks a positive one with the pair operating at a 36% strike-rate when teaming. Both her wins have come on good/good-to-firm and although a wide-open contest she should be in the mix.
Result – Lost
