Tuesday 25th selections from #Bangor #Musselburgh

Hi all,

here are our selections for Tuesdays racing at Bangor and Musselburgh. Good luck if you follow. Please remember to always gamble responsibly.

IWAC Selection.

13:53 Bangor-On-Dee  

O’Hanrahan Bridge (1 point win only 10 to 1).

Pulled up on Chase debut, then again next time out returning to hurdles. Reported to have bled on that chase run and was given a short break before latest run. Interesting that he is turned out so quickly following that lesser performance and is well worth keeping an eye on for a yard that excel at this track and are is such good form of late.

Next best selection.

14:20 Musselburgh

Red Bond (1 point win only 14 to 1).

Comes here with a bit to prove following a run of 12 defeats. That said however he now comes here following a short break and sitting on a pretty handy mark. Was seen racing well off a mark of 92 this time last year and now goes from 15 pound lower at 77. Conditions look ideal and this small dip in grade could be just the trick to get this one back to winning ways.

15:30 Musselburgh

Clay Regazzoni (1 point win only 10 to 1).

Just 1 win from 25 runs and is another that we are taking a leap of faith on from the Keith Dalgleish yard. Another however that has continued to fall down the weights and it is only a matter of time before this one manages to get his head in front. Takes a much need drop back in trip here and gets ideal conditions so certainly won’t have any excuses should he come up short once more.

Nap Selection.

16:38 Musselburgh

Euro Implosion ( 1 point win only 13 to 2).

Previous course and distance winner and the last in a trio of Keith Dalgleish runners amongst our selections on the day. A familiar story of one who has not been performing up to his best and been on a long losing run. Again however as a result of this he comes here on a very handy mark and will go some 13 pounds behind his last winning mark.

Mondays selections from #Brighton #Wolverhampton

Hey all,

Here are Mondays selections, have a great day, be lucky and please always gamble responsibly.

IWAC Selection

15:10 Brighton  

Arceus (0.5 points Each Way 22/1 4 places with Sky Bet)

Lightly raced maiden who has rejoined Mick Appleby following a failed spell at Sean Keightley’s yard. Finished last of 10 in a Nursery at Wolverhampton back in December and has not been seen on the track since. Returns to action in what looks a very ordinary affair and if able to show any of his early promise could cause an upset here. Put in a promising run on debut last August and hopefully this switch back to turf can bring about a revival.

Nap Selection

17:20 Brighton

Bayamon Belle (1 point win only 6/1)

Not beaten far over course and distance just 6 days ago and goes from the same mark here. Put in a fair run on her first run on turf in a sellers race previously and that race has worked out pretty well since, so plenty of encouragement on recent form. Rhys Clutterbuck takes over in the saddle and he has a record of 4 wins and 1 placed effort from just 6 rides for the in form Joseph Tuite yard who has scored with 5 of his last 15 runners.

Next Best Selection

14:30 Wolverhampton  

Blue Venture (1 point win only 11/1)

Still a maiden after 12 runs but has managed to hit the frame on 5 occasions, including a close up second over course and distance 19 months ago. Ran well here again last August from a 6 pound higher mark and both of these runs have come in the hands of Tom Marquand who takes over in the saddle for this reappearance run. Draw not ideal and has to overcome a 231 day lay off but comes in on a very handy mark and with his yard in good form. Not the strongest of races so one we are willing to take a gamble on.

15:05 Fakenham 23 May 2021 

1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards

Etat Major Aulmes (1pt win only 8/1) Iwac

Runner up last time out behind a very comfortable subsequent winner and has to be worth another chance from just 1lb higher. Probably did a little too much too early last time out but was a staying on second which offers some encouragement today stepped up in trip. Easing ground should play into his favour too.

14:55 Nottingham 23 May 2021

Watch On Racing TV Handicap

Mrs Dibble (1pt win only 8/1) Nb

Pulled very hard in two handicap starts to date and despite this has finished only around 4 lengths off the winner both times. Has a tongue tie on for the first time today and William Buick takes over in the saddle. If these measures are able to settle him then this current mark looks like a fairly light one for such a well bred runner. Yard do well with their runners here and have been in decent form of late. An eye should also be kept on Bannergirl who offers excellent EW value at 33/1

17:10 Nottingham 23 May 2021

Follow RacingTV On Twitter Handicap

Lady Isabel (1pt win only 13/2) Nap

Based on what we have seen from this Joseph Parr trained filly to date this step back up in trip in slightly more testing conditions could bring out the very best of her. Will need to be tuned up following 178 days off the track but is still fairly lightly raced and open to plenty of improvement. On a fair mark and back in the cheekpieces that have worked so well to date.

14:50 Goodwood 22 May 2021

Download The MansionBet App Handicap

Bravado (0.5pt EW 18/1)

Bounced back to some kind of form last time out when runner up in a decent race at Chester’s May festival. Will need to be in equally as good a mood today but represents decent EW value going from the same mark in what look to be perfect conditions. Could prove tough to pass if able to get a soft lead from this field as many of the Mark Johnstone horses often do.

13:55 Haydock 22 May 2021

Casumo Horse Racing And Sports Betting Handicap

Tom Collins (1pt win only 6/1)

Interesting contender for top yard William Haggas who are in fine form at present. Back on ground that looks to be more like his ideal and dropping back slightly in trip could be just the key to help this one get back to winning ways. Was not disgraced despite the bare result last time out in a hot contest on ground that was too quick and much better can be expected here in slightly calmer waters. Cheekpieces on for first time which could also eek out a little more.

14:25 Haydock 22 May 2021

Download The Casumo App Today Handicap

Vindolanda (1pt win only 11/1)

An overpriced IWAC selection who possibly still has a little to prove at this level and over this longer trip but has too much in favour to leave at these prices. Twice a course winner and previous wins on soft and heavy, has also placed on her only start over this trip. Latest run can be forgiven and should come on heaps for that pipe opener.

15:35 Haydock 22 May 2021

Casumo Bet10Get10 Sandy Lane Stakes

Umm Kulthum (1pt win only 12/1)

One from the tracker who looked in need of her reappearance run last time out following 204 days off the track. Will be interesting to see how she copes with todays conditions but there is enough in the breeding to suggest that she should go well enough and will no doubt have the stamina to be staying on when needed.

16:45 Haydock 22 May 2021

Casumo Proud Sponsors Of Reading FC Handicap

Two Cop Bop (1pt win only 5/1)

Progressive two year old who returned to action last time out looking to be in need of the run. Has won on soft ground which offers plenty of encouragement in todays conditions.

13:30 Ffos Las 10 May 2021 

JPR Phoenix Handicap Hurdle

Balkardy (1pt win only 7/1) Nb

Lightly raced maiden who ran well enough in a decent looking juvenile race last time out. Previous to that he went pretty close when staying on to finish an eyecatching 3rd at Doncaster. Bred to appreciate this step up in trip here and looks to be on a very fair looking mark with conditions in favour.

14:05 Ffos Las 10 May 2021 

PreventaPest – Paper Bed Handicap Chase

Sad Eyed Dylan (0.5pt EW 20/1 4 places PP) IWAC

Had a bit of a trouble time in the past couple of years but put in a slightly improved performance following a wind op last time out. This offers some hope from the current mark now making the switch back to the bigger obstacles, over which he has only competed twice and finishing runner up on both occasions. Conditions to suit and plenty to like.

16:20 Ffos Las 10 May 2021 

Plan A Consulting Handicap Chase

Stung For Cash (1pt win only 10/1) Nap

Badly hampered when still going well within on chase debut and weakened thereafter. Worth another try here stepped up in trip to what looks a very ordinary race. Blinkers on for the first time which could bring about some improvement and ought to be able to outrun these odds for the in form Tom Lacey.

13:50 Ludlow 09 May 2021

South Shropshire Roofing Handicap Hurdle

Our Rockstar (1pt win only 8/1)

Has lost her way a little in recent runs but as a result of that comes here a very well handicapped runner. Won’t want the ground to get too soft but is more than capable of taking a race like this if turning up in the right mood. Yard do pretty well with their runners here and are profitable to follow too with a LSP of +47

14:20 Ludlow 09 May 2021

South Shropshire Roofing Handicap Hurdle

Keepscalling (1pt win only 11/1) Nnb

Was in the process of running a big race when unseating two runs back. Disappointing next time out but that was over the minimum trip and today’s step back up in trip could give this one a fair chance from an unchanged mark. Lightly raced and will be winning a race of this magnitude sometime soon.

14:08 Plumpton 09 May 2021 

Buy The Plumpton History Book Now Handicap Hurdle

Jimmy (1pt win only 9/2)

CD winner who ended last term in disappointing fashion. Wasn’t much better sent out in two runs over the bigger obstacles returning from a 344 day lay off. Put in a much more encouraging run next time out however back over hurdles and is worth another try here back in the hands of Tom Cannon for in form local trainer C Gordon. Still has a bit to prove but is now back going in the right direction from what looks a very fair mark.

14:38 Plumpton 09 May 2021 

Buy The Plumpton History Book Now Handicap Hurdle

Tommie Beau (1pt win only 5/1) Nap

Put in an improved performance stepped up in trip last time out and is bred for this further step up today. Well worth a crack following that encouraging run and looks to be getting ideal conditions too.

16:38 Plumpton 09 May 2021 

attheraces.com Handicap Chase

Marilyn Monroe (1pt win only 9/2) Nb

Points winner who made a winning return stepped up to 3 miles at Taunton back in October. Has been schooled gently leading up to this chase debut and could well be a much better horse for the switch today. Bred to go chasing and looks to be on a fair opening mark for the in form A Honeyball yard.

15:40 Ascot 08 May 2021 

tote+ Victoria Cup

Jumeira Bay (1pt win only 12/1)

Low mileage and well handicapped based on the best of his form from last year. Will appreciate the overnight deluge of rain and if tuned up first time could put in a big effort today. Gelded since last seen and could well find improvement from last term which makes this one a very interesting contender. Yard going well and a very valuable 3lb is taken off by the very talented Ray Dawson who is 4 wins and 1 placed effort from just 13 runs for a 30% strike at the track with a LSP of +30.

Full Authority (0.5pt EW 50/1 6 places)

Progressive last term for Sir Michael Stoute and is very interesting starting out from what looks a very workable mark for new yard. Has had a wind op since last seen and takes a step up in trip today. Breeding suggests the new trip should be no problem and is another that should appreciate the overnight rain.

16:15 Ascot 08 May 2021 

tote+ Exclusively At tote.co.uk Handicap

Its Good To Laugh (0.5pt EW 20/1 4 places Skybet)

Slightly disappointing when stepped up to this trip for the first time when last seen, that run came in very testing heavy ground however so we are willing to draw a line through that run and take a look a little further back through his form book. Going back to July last year we find a run where he was beaten just a nose by todays favourite in similar conditions but over the slightly shorter trip of 10 furlongs. Comes here fresh today and some 7lb better off with that rival and could well just outrun these odds. 4 places available which is too tempting a cover not to have a go.

16:50 Ascot 08 May 2021 

tote+ Pays You More Handicap

Batchelor Boy (1pt win only 10/1)

Shrewd yard who are very keen to turn this one out very quickly suggesting that he has come out of his last race pretty well. Has a couple of pieces of turf form for previous yard that suggests this mark is a winable one too and if coping with conditions today should go close at inflated odds. Yard in good form and well worth a try in this open looking contest.

15:10 Haydock 08 May 2021

Pertemps Network Swinton Handicap Hurdle

Ballinsker (1pt win only 15/2)

Trainers record in this race is one that stands out and peaks our interest. The selection put in a pretty underwhelming performance when last seen in the Betfair at Newbury but had previously put in a decent performance in the Greatwood at Cheltenham. That piece of form is possibly one that stands out in this field and a reproduction of something near that today would see this shrewd yard grabbing a 5th win in this race in just 8 years. On a decent mark and should be suited by today’s easing ground.

Trackers out today

19:05 Thirsk 08 May 2021

Furzig 13/2 – Not quite as effective on turf as he is the AW hence the much lower mark making a return to todays surface. That said however has won at the track before and returns to turf today in lesser company so not completely ruled out.

16:15 Ascot 08 May 2021 

Its Good To Laugh 20/1 – See Above

16:20 Haydock 08 May 2021

Kapono 10/1 – Been running well of late but will need to step up on those efforts to score here. On a fair mark and cannot be ruled out returning to turf today.

14:55 Nottingham 08 May 2021

Mountain Brave 7/1 – Made all to win last time out and could well follow that up today. Improving sort for in form yard.

11:40 Thirsk 17 Apr 2021

Chestnut Room At thirskraces Ideal Wedding Venue Handicap

Noorbaan (1pt win only 10/1)

A winner on debut last term and not disgraced when stepped up into group company in what looked an above average renewal of the Lowther. Plenty of form has come out of that race and she followed that up with another decent run over 6f at Newmarket when 7th of 27. Drops back to 5F here and if ready to go again this year could well steal this from the front for last years winning trainer.

13:10 Thirsk 17 Apr 2021

Every Race Live On Racing TV Handicap

Dick Datchery (1pt win only 8/1)

Can be forgiven his latest run when making his reappearance following a 142 day lay off and wind surgery in much better company and better can be expected here. Only 1lb above his last winning mark and with improvement a possibility we have to take a chance here.

11:25 Bangor-On-Dee 17 Apr 2021 

Potter Group Handicap Hurdle

Lady Sally (0.5pt EW 16/1)

Put in a good piece of work in behind a Fergal O Brien winner at Leicester that has come out and won again since. Not run up to that since however but last race can be forgiven following a wind op and she should be a little more something like here. Weighted to go close judged on that form and cannot be ignored with 4 and 5 places available.

18:00 Brighton 17 Apr 2021 

starsports.bet 20K Owners Club Guarantee Handicap

De Little Engine (1pt win only 14/1)

2 wins and 2 placed efforts from 6 runs over CD and goes here some 12lb below the latest of those victories which came in this race back in 2019. Will be fit from the AW and has to be worth a try from this mark back at what looks to be a bit of a favourable track. Wide draw to contend with but more than capable on a going day.

19:30 Brighton 17 Apr 2021 

Download The Star Sports App Today Handicap

Hedging (1pt win only 8/1)

3 times course winner who can often go well fresh. Yard not quite got going yet but this one comes here 2lb below his last CD win and has to be worth a try given his record here. Valuable 5lb claimer on board in Georgia Dobie putting this one on a very handy mark.

14:10 Market Rasen 04 Apr 2021

Mansionbet morethanthenational Faller Insurance Handicap Hurdle

Diamond Rose (1pt win only 11/1)

Ernesto is a worthy favourite here following his latest run but is yet to go in handicap races and whilst his opening mark doesn’t look overly harsh he is also taking a step up in trip so there are a few points to prove for one at such a short price. So instead we turn to the overpriced Julian Smith runner. A yard that does well here with a 27% strike and one that is also profitable to follow with a LSP of +59. Stats aside this 9 year old mare is a previous CD winnerwho put in a fair performance returning from a break last time out. Should be able to come on for that run in what look to be ideal conditions from a mark that is not overly generous but is about right.

13:00 Southwell 04 Apr 2021 

Follow At The Races On Twitter Handicap

Raabeh (1pt win only 14/1)

With many in this race looking to be in the grips of the handicapper we turn to one who despite having a few questions to answer offers a few nuggets of hope too. Has been off the track for 110 days so will need to be ready but comes here from what looks a pretty handy mark to help with that cause. Still pretty lightly raced and put in arguably his best performance to date here over CD back in November. That run was from an 8lb higher mark and he also has the additional help of Angus Villiers 5lb today making him some 13lb better off than for that run. Has a bit to prove following two lesser runs since but hopefully the team have got to the bottom of whatever was wrong before his return here today.

14:06 Southwell 04 Apr 2021 

Free Tips Daily On Attheraces.com Handicap

I Had A Dream (0.5pt EW 40/1)

Huge outsider who is clearly a risky proposition. However has placed twice from just 6 of her runs to date and despite disappointing since switching yards offers a glimmer of hope from this reduced mark today. Clearly had problems as the yard have given her some time off and goes in the tongue strap today. Hopefully this will help as on her best run she is not on an overly harsh mark. Breeding suggest that the track should suit and the yard have a decent record here in recent times with a 21% win and 50% place strike in the last 12 months. Josephine Gordon takes the ride over one from S L Keightley yard for who she is the yard jockey and there are no weight issues determining that decision.

16:11 Southwell 04 Apr 2021 

Download The At The Races App Handicap

Fragrant Storm (1pt win only 4/1)

Well bred and well related handicap debutant from a stable in form. Closely related to stables Nayef Road who won on handicap debut from a mark of 85, this one goes from just 64 and is well worth a try upped in trip on this new surface today.

15:23 Carlisle 03 Apr 2021

Every Race Live On Racing Tv Handicap Chase

Better Getalong (1pt win only 16/1)

Decent hurdler who was set a pretty stiff task on chase debut just 13 days ago. This looks a more realistic test and a better run can be expected. Opening mark in this sphere looks fair and despite being the outsider of the field can not be written off on what will be only a second start over fences. Yard do pretty well with their runners here with around a 24% strike rate in the last 5 years which offers further encouragement.

16:33 Carlisle 03 Apr 2021

Watch Irish Racing On Racingtv Handicap Chase

Pookie Pekan (1pt win only 14/1)

A two times CD winner who has fallen to a very tempting mark having had a few runs that on paper look below par. Excuses can be made however from ground not right to inadequate trip so another chance is given here. Made an encouraging reappearance back in October suggesting this revised mark is a fair one to say the least. Last two wins have come over CD with similar conditions so plenty to like about this outsider.

17:40 Carlisle 03 Apr 2021

Newby Amateur Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle

Bobby Bow (1pt win only 7/1)

Made a very pleasing start over hurdles at Hexham but has failed to build on that in 3 starts since. Mark doesn’t look overly harsh however for a shrewd owner who knows how to place one and is worth a try here with family connections also getting the leg up for what will be a debut ride.

15:00 Musselburgh 03 Apr 2021

Betway Scottish Sprint Cup Handicap

Zarzyni (1pt win only 11/2)

A potential handicap blot who ran very well on yard debut following a 172 day lay off. If he can prove as effective over this minimum trip the could well land the spoils. Despite having won over 7f he hinted that this drop in trip could suit having pulled hard early on in his last race before finishing off strongly. Has the ability if able to dominate from the front.

20:00 Wolverhampton 03 Apr 2021 

Download The At The Races App Handicap

Transition (1pt win only 16/1)

Goes here from a very tempting mark and dropping in class. Looked in need of his latest run and and could be capable of much better here. Has previously won from a 13lb higher mark so we give hope that first time cheekpieces can bring about a little spark and maybe a resurgence for this shrewd yard.
