13:45 Sandown 07 Aug 2020

Weybridge Handicap

Pink Sands (1pt win only 3/1)

In need of the run last time out following a 399 day lay off. That was over a slightly longer trip too which may well just have stretched him. Back down to the minimum 5F here and a big run can be expected.

18:20 Wolverhampton 07 Aug 2020 

MansionBet Beaten By A Head Handicap

Choral Work (1pt win only 4/1)

Lightly raced and open to plenty of improvement. Slightly disappointing last run and capable of much better if able to bounce back. Trys Tapeta surface for the first time which could also bring out some improvement.

14:55 Sandown 07 Aug 2020

Kingston Handicap

Production (1pt win only 10/1)

Run well on all 3 starts for this new yard including when 5th in a much better race last time out. Coming to the boil and starting to look very well treated for the in form Ed Walker. heekpieces on for the first time and enters calculations at a big price.

16:50 Wolverhampton 07 Aug 2020 

British Stallion Studs EBF Penk Novice Median Auction Stakes

Roman Dynasty (0.5pt EW 16/1)

Exciting looking newcomer for this new yard who have done pretty well to date with the few runners they have had. Weak looking race and should be capable of a place at least for a yard that isn’t wasting much ammo

17:35 Lingfield 05 Aug 2020 

Betway Casino Handicap

Tidal Racer (1pt win only 8/1 B365)

Lightly raced and going the right way for a formidable duo, Cox/Kirby. Slowly away last time out from a wide draw and given too much to do. Made up plenty of ground late on however and if getting away better this time should go close.

19:35 Lingfield 05 Aug 2020 

Betway Casino Maiden Stakes

Hasty Sailor (1pt win only 12/1)

A competitive race but this one ran a decent race on debut and was not given a hard time either. Far more can be expected from this overpriced runner from the in form Stoute yard now stepping up in trip.

18:10 Ayr 05 Aug 2020

Luxury Breaks At Western House Hotel Amateur Jockeys’ Handicap

Only The Brave (1pt win only 4/1)

A likely sort for Archie Watson bought over from Ireland and exactly the sort he excels with. On a good mark here and goes in the very capable hands of Brodie Hampson who has a great record for the yard.

Help us provide a #PromiseDream https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/h4c

13:35 Leicester 02 Aug 2020

British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes

Thunderstone (1pt win only 13/2)

A very well put together and fairly expensive £210K purchase. Night Of Thunder colt out of G2 winning Filly Frine. Not got the experience of a run yet unlike some of todays rivals but yard know what they are doing and have the string in good order so a chance is taken on what looks a very nicely bred sort.

16:00 Newcastle 02 Aug 2020 

Watch Free Replays On attheraces.com Fillies’ Novice Stakes

Oceans Meet (1pt win only 10/1)

Another well bred horse for the above stable who are very much in form. Dam unraced but is very well related including to Group placed Figure of Speech who won on debut. Overpriced and worth a try on debut

14:50 Deauville (France) 02 Aug 2020 

Prix Rothschild

Summer Romance (1pt win only 6/1 Corals)

Taking on the well fancied favourite with a possible improver from a top stable. Receives a good lump of weight from the favourite here and the form of her latest victory looks good enough to suggest there is far more to come.

13:10 Sandown 02 Aug 2020

Long Ditton Maiden Fillies’ Stakes

Aim For The Stars (1pt win only 10/1)

Another very well put together filly who hails from a yard that are more than capable of getting one ready at the first time of asking. This ones Dam was a winner on debut for same owners and we will be keeping track of her career. Will no doubt want further in time but well overpriced here receiving a very handy 6lb from the favourite. Add into that Cieron Fallons extra 3 and she should run a big race.

14:25 Newcastle 02 Aug 2020 

Sky Sports Racing HD Virgin 535 Conditions Stakes

Yafta (1pt win only 9/2)

One of two runners for top connections here including one who has a better CV to date and returns to racing for an in form yard. Interesting then that retained jockey Jim Crowley chooses this one, we trust his judgement and take a nibble.

13:55 Newcastle 02 Aug 2020 

Follow At The Races On Twitter Fillies’ Handicap

Feisty Gal (1pt win only 8/1)

Jim Crowleys stats for this yard are what drew the eye, he is 6 wins and 3 placed from 17 in the last 12 months for them at a SR of 35%. Horse looks to have a decent pedigree and is the yards only runner on the card. Handicapping for the first time and would be no surprise if she put her best foot forward today.

15:35 Goodwood 01 Aug 2020

Unibet Stewards’ Cup

Watan (1pt win only 8/1)

Ran a big race in behind todays favourite last time out making a reappearance from almost a year off the track. Will be entitled to have come on for that run for a yard who are finding form. Also far better off at today’s weights with that reopposing rival and is given a chance here.

19:15 Hamilton 01 Aug 2020

Thank You Hamilton Park Management Team Handicap

Four Kingdoms (0.5pt EW 20/1 4 places Skybet)

Eased 3lb for what was an improved run last time out and is starting to look well treated again. Steps back up significantly in trip here again to one more suitable. With today’s 5lb claimer on board now sits on a very attractive mark.

16:00 Deauville (France) 01 Aug 2020 

Prix De Psyche Sky Sports Racing

Arriviste (1pt win only 16/1 B365)

One from the tracker who put in a great effort last time out when just narrowly denied by subsequent smart looking sort Award Scheme. Was well clear of 3rd place that day and the form looks to be working out. Well worth a try for this yard who don’t often travel this far afield.

19:55 Lingfield 31 Jul 2020 

Read Andrew Balding On Betway Insider Handicap

Morning Shadow (0.5pt EW 28/1 B365)

Lightly raced maiden having a first run for shrewd trainer James Ferguson since leaving Mark Johnston. Eased another 3lb here and although needing to find some improvement has been in good hands and must have more to offer.

19:05 Wolverhampton 31 Jul 2020 

Follow At The Races On Twitter Handicap

Masquerade Bling (1pt win only 14/1)

CD winner lurking on a very dangerous mark with the very talented Cieron Fallon taking off an extra 3lb. Yard have been in form of late and any sort of revival puts this one well in the mix.

19:35 Wolverhampton 31 Jul 2020 

Download The At The Races App Handicap

Follow Intello (0.5pt EW 16/1 Will Hill)

Ran over an inadequate trip last time out returning from a 265 day lay off and as a consequence falls here back to his last winning mark. Yard going well and stepped back up in trip here has to hold excellent EW chances.

13:10 Goodwood 29 Jul 2020

British Stallion Studs EBF Fillies’ Handicap

Lake Lucerne (1pt win only 6/1)

The first of 3 selections from the in form John Gosden yard for us for Wednesdays Goodwood card. Left a poor debut race behind when scoring stepping up in distace back in March. Unable to land a blow last time out in a hot race and takes a drop into handicap company here from what looks a fair mark.

14:15 Goodwood 29 Jul 2020

Unibet 3 Boosts A Day Handicap

Encipher (1pt win only 8/1)

Number 2 from the Gosden yard nd a very similar story to the last, comes here droping markedly in class and tackling a handicap for the first time. Again looks fairly treated and takes a step up in trip here which should suit and could well bring about some improvement.

16:20 Goodwood 29 Jul 2020

Theo Fennell Handicap

Verboten (1pt win only 11/1)

Has a tough draw to overcome here and has not shown himself in a good lightso far this term. Far better than that however and we take a chance on his best form. Completes the trilogy of Gosden trained Godolphin runners. A well regarded horse who will have more to offer at some point.

13:45 Goodwood 29 Jul 2020

Unibet You’re On Goodwood Handicap

The Grand Visir (1pt win only 11/1)

Just denied a neck at Royal Ascot from this mark and could well have come on for that run. Trainer has won this race twice in recent years and sends a strong hand again here. Over piced on last run in top company and well worth another try from the same mark.

18:00 Thirsk 29 Jul 2020

Sky Bet Thank You Key Workers Handicap

Shared Belief (1pt win only 7/1)

Arcie Watson saddles just the one runner on the day and its one who comes here looking to be coming into form. Ran no sort of race at Royal Ascot but drops into much more suitable company here with the yard in much better order now.

13:10 Goodwood 28 Jul 2020

British European Breeders Fund EBF Fillies’ Handicap

Wasaayef (1pt win only 11/4)

Yard has their string in good order and this lightly raced and well bred entry looks an exciting prospect on return from almost a year off. Has some pretty decent form in her 3 starts to date and this mark of 93 could well be an underestimated one.

16:55 Goodwood 28 Jul 2020

British European Breeders Fund EBF Fillies’ Handicap

Tulip Fields (1pt win only 9/2)

Won a couple of handicaps returning to action including one here at Goodwood and ran very well in a listed event last time out. Returns to handicap company eased slightly in the weights and goes for a trainer that often does well at this meeting.

14:30 Ayr 28 Jul 2020

Jordan Electrics Handicap

Harrison Point (1pt win only 6/1)

Has run respectably in better company and comes here for a yard well and truly in form and a trainer/jockey combination that are making a name for themselves. Also sits on a falling mark and is looking fairly treated here down in grade.

14:45 Goodwood 28 Jul 2020

Qatar Lennox Stakes

History Writer (0.5pt EW 80/1 4 Places Will Hill)

Huge outsider going for a yard who don’t waste much ammunition. Has an entry in a C2 handicap later in the week so with the yards horses in good order its very interesting to see this one pitched in to a Group2 contest. Was possibly in need of latest run and undoubtedly has something to find here but at these odds with 4 places on offer we have to have a nibble

Every Race Live On Racing TV Fillies’ Novice Stakes

Sarsanet (1pt win only 6/1)

Kodiac filly out of a Listed winning Dam. Sister and half sister to a couple of notewortyysorts including Tawdheef a winner on debut and goes from a rating of 90+. This one has a little more stamina in the breeding so this 7F trip looks ideal on debut. Certainly one of the more interesting runners in this line up. Yard a little out of sorts being my main concern.

18:30 Windsor 27 Jul 2020 

Final Furlong Podcast Handicap

Broughtons Gold (1pt win only 3/1)

Was due to run at Newmarket on Saturday at Newmarket when quietly fancied and was withdrawn that day. Turned out quickly here suggesting this in form yard are looking to strike while the iron is hot. That was a C2 handicap and this race is a much lower sighted target as a C4. Twice a winner already in just 4 starts and worth another try here.

19:00 Windsor 27 Jul 2020 

Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap

Adonis Blue (1pt win only 10/1)

Goes for the in form Roger Charlton yard and not really done much to talk about in 3 starts. Enters handicap company here however from a lowly mark of 67, somewhat of a shock maybe for the yard as they had him enterend in a slightly higher grade before switching to this. His best run was his latest over this CD and looks fairly treated here with Tom Greatrex taking off a further 3lb. Tom has a good strike rate for the yard of 25%

0.25pt Trixie on above 3 runners – 1pt

From the Tracker

Derek Le Grand 1pt win 6/1 830 Windsor – Runner up behind Molinari last time out who went on to run a very promising and well fancied Gosden runner very close. Up 2lb for that run but this step up in trip could eek out a little more judging by how he finished off his race that day.

15:05 Ascot 26 Jul 2020 

Betfred Valiant Fillies’ Stakes

Love and Thunder (0.5pt EW 16/1 Coral)

Over priced runner for a bang in form yard. One of two in the race for trainer John Gosden and the pick of stable jockey Rab Havlin. Only beaten a short head on debut when over in France and made a winning start for these new connections at Newbury. Dissapointing latest run at Epsom but excuses can be made for that run. Will need to bounce back but looks to be no forlorn hope for this top yard.

16:50 Ascot 26 Jul 2020 

Betfred Treble Odds On Lucky 15’s Handicap

Makram (1pt win only 7/1)

Plenty of encouragement can be taken from his win on just 2nd start for on the AW at Lingfield. Opening mark here judged on that form looks a very leiniant one with his yard in blistering form. Oisin Murphy takes the ride and he is 6 wins and 7 placed from just 26 for this yard a record that only improves when taking a look over the shorter term.

15:40 Ascot 26 Jul 2020 

Princess Margaret Betfred Stakes

Santosha (1pt win only 4/1)

One from the tracker and one of two entered in the race for rising yard. Not a bad headache to have with these two very promising youngsters. With limited form on offer the form of this ones races to date could be playing out just ever so slightly better so we take a chance here. Conditions should pose no problems.

16:55 Cartmel 26 Jul 2020

Holker Hall & Gardens Handicap Hurdle

Judge Et Parti (1pt win only 8/1)

A rare runner over obstacles for the in form Archie Watson yard and he will no doubt have this one ready to roll here. Won first time out last term and despite winning twice last year will kick off this campaign 2lb lower than his last winning mark. Brodie Hampson takes the ride as per and has a great record for this team.

0.25pt trixie on above 3 win selections – 1pt

Others of note from the tracker

Blazing Hot 5/1 (140W) 1pt win – Worth another try back up in trip following a couple of decent efforts over minimum trip where running into one and not getting a clear run on the other occasion.

Bomb Proof 7/1 (155A) 1pt win – Form of debut race for Jeremy Noseda worked out very well and despite long lay off made a winning return for new yard. Opening mark looks stiff but very talented and could well improve for last run.

Chocoya 40/1 (340A) – Huge price judged on latest run but would have wanted more places available to chance the EW bet.

13:40 Newmarket 25 Jul 2020

British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes

Dhahabi (1pt win only 5/2 B365)

This superbly bred Frankel colt has the markings of one that is very special. Half brother to the top class Golden Horn. Holds an entry in the G2 Futurity over in Ireland for next month and has to be respected here.

13:50 Ascot 25 Jul 2020 

BetfredTV Pat Eddery Stakes

Saeiqa (1pt win only 4/1 B365)

John Gosden has his runners going well and has a 41% strike in the last 7 days having scored with 5 from 12 with 4 more running into a place. The selection has by far the best piece of form on offer when 3rd in the Coventry at the Royal meeting, a race that has produced a handful of winners since. Should benefit from the step up in trip here today too.

14:50 Newmarket 25 Jul 2020

Alborada Trust Fillies’ Novice Stakes

Bizzi Lizzi (1pt win only 11/1 general)

One of two very interesting newcomers here for the bang in form John Gosden. Will need to be ready first time up to beat the short priced favourite but has more than enough in the breeding to suggest that possibility is more of a reality.

16:00 Newmarket 25 Jul 2020

Chestnut Giving Tree Handicap

Beatboxer (1pt win only 11/2 general)

Can be forgiven a poor reappearance run at Royal Ascot from a near on impossible draw. Has been eased a few pounds here and now sits just 1lb above last winning mark for the above mentioned in form yard. Steps up in trip and has ideal conditions so no more excuses for this one.

16:10 Ascot 25 Jul 2020 

Betfred.com Handicap

Arabist (0.5pt EW 25/1 PP)

Now we move on to an ex John Gosden runner who has been snapped up by Dr Marwan Koukash and put in the hands of another yard going well, Ian Williams. The sort that this yard excels with and could spring a surprise here from the bottom of the market. A very low mileage runner and yard won this race last year.
