Racing Welfare Supporting Racing’s Workforce Handicap

Global Heat (1pt win only 6/1)

Been off for 7 months and returns to the UK following a spell in Meydan. Didn’t really put best foot forward in just two races over there but returns here with yard firing on all cylinders. On best of earlier form looks well treated today. Yard won this race last year with one who had a similar profile who was also returning to Uk from Meydan following 7 month absence.

13:15 Newmarket 26 Sep 2020

Blandford Bloodstock Maiden Fillies’ Stakes

Star Of Screen (0.5pt EW 50/1)

Bit of a longshot but makes enough appeal on paper to warrant a small EW in this wide open contest at such a price. Plenty of encouragement in the breeding for 2yo success and if the rain stays away long enough could be a surprise package here.

14:25 Newmarket 26 Sep 2020

Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes

Alcohol Free (1pt win only 13/2)

Less exposed thatn a few of these here and despite finishing runner up last time out was still running pretty green and can be expected to come on for that run. Some of the form from that race ties in with a few here and on that evidence with a little improvement this one could give the favourite something to think about today.

15:35 Newmarket 26 Sep 2020

bet365 Cambridgeshire Handicap

Tulfarris (0.5pt EW 33/1 7 places PP)

Often the bridesmaid and not the bride but for that said is a pretty consistent performer at or around this level. Has a decent draw here today based on previous runnings. Narrowly denied last time out returning from almost a year off the track and goes again from the same mark suggesting that he is well treated should he come on for that run. This demands more but is less exposed at this trip than many of his rivals and that could prove vital after such a condensed season for many. Won’t mind a drop of rain and is pretty versatile with conditions.

Sodexo Veterans’ Handicap

Dragons Voice (1pt win only 12/1)

A rare runner North of the border for David Menusier who sends just this one runner on a 862 mile round trip here today. Last couple of runs have left a little to be desired but on best form is fairly treated. Has cheekpieces on for the first time following a couple of poor performances and been off for 65 days too. That gives this shrewd handler plenty of time to have worked some magic. 2lb below last winning mark and has favourable conditions too so plenty to like on paper.

17:05 Hamilton 21 Sep 2020

RacingTV HD On Sky 426 Handicap

Cruising (1pt win only 11/2)

Has been running very well from this mark recently and finishing off his races strongly over 7f. That suggests that this small step up in trip today for the in form D Brown could well provide the answers. Kevin Stott takes over in the saddle and he is 2/3 for the yard this term. Vulnerable from a win perspective and needs to find a little more but today’s changes could be just the ticket.

13:00 Leicester 21 Sep 2020

Leicester Apprentice Handicap

Peachey Carnehan (1pt win only 10/1)

A very consistent performer who won this race last year from just 1lb lower. Did so last year without the aide of any claim and won pretty comfortably too. Has a 5lb claim today and has been in good heart so worth a try returning here with the yard just starting to gather some momentum.

14:45 Warwick 21 Sep 2020 Handicap Chase

At Its Own Expense (1pt win only 8/1)

Phillip Hobbs sole runner on the card and goes in the hands of Champion Jockey Richard Johnson. Hard to asses on current run and will hopefully come on for it here. Still not fulfilled potential over fences and may have more to offer. Nicely priced and should give us a run for our money from a slightly revised mark. Phillip is 7 wins and 5 placed from 23 for a 30% strike here in the last 12 months which offers plenty of encouragement too.

16:25 Wolverhampton 21 Sep 2020 

Visit Handicap

Dana Forever (1pt win only 7/1)

Was denied a clear run last time out in the hands of this inexperienced claimer over CD and if getting away on terms today could give this short priced favourite something to think about. Chances were scuppered pretty early on last time out but showed a great attitude to plug on for a place and is weighted to reverse the form with the reopposing Baltic State. Poppy Fielding is 2 wins and 3 placed from 8 for Tom Dascombe in the last 12 months with a LSP of +32 so is profitable to follow.

CCR Handicap

Dubai Legacy (1pt win only 7/1)

Returns from a spell in Meydan and off the back of a 200+ day lay off. Has gone well fresh in the past and is only 1lb above his last winning mark. All wins have come over this trip or within 1/2 a furlong. Oisin Murphy takes the ride and he has a 30% strike for the yard in the last 12 months. Yard tends to come good around this time too and they know how to win here with around a 30% strike rate. Yards only runner on the card.

15:00 Chelmsford City 20 Sep 2020 Handicap

Will To Win (1pt win only 9/2)

4 wins and 1 placed effort from just 5 runs on the AW. Yet to run here but those wins have come at 3 different AW tracks. Returns to AW today following a spell on turf where he did not quite transfer the form. Been freshened up with a short break and still has a little juice in this mark with the yard going great guns (31% STRIKE IN LAST 14 DAYS). James Doyle has a 28% strike for the yard and a very good LSP of +21 and he takes the ride here today.

13:15 Plumpton 20 Sep 2020 

Strong Flavours Catering Juvenile Hurdle

Full Secret (0.5pt EW 20/1)

A pretty modest flat performer who has joined Neil King from Richard Fahey. Was well held on stable debut but is of far much more interest starting out over obstacles for the first time. Decently bred filly who receives weight here from some of the more fancied runners and could well be a surprise package for this shrewd duo of King/Frost. Bryony Frost has a 20% strike and LSP od +61 when riding for the yard.

15:20 Plumpton 20 Sep 2020 

Thank You Nhs & Key Workers Handicap Hurdle

Honorable (1pt win only 11/2)

Very hit and miss for the local trainer but finds himself here upped in trip, down in grade and falling in the weights. On pick of last years efforts these 3 factors combined would give this one a huge chance today. Yard have been plodding along nicely and enjoy a fair bit of success here too. Worth the punt.

14:30 Ayr 19 Sep 2020

QTS Ayr Silver Cup Handicap

Magical Spirit (0.5pt EW 25/1 6 places Will Hill)

Lightly raced and put in a much improved run over 5f last time out following wind surgery. If able to improve for that run could well go close here at a big price. Equally as effective over this longer trip and was in fact doing his best work late on last time over the shorter trip. Ground looks ideal and Kevin Stott takes the ride. Kevin gets on well with this one and is 3 wins and 4 placed from 9 rides on board.

15:05 Ayr 19 Sep 2020

Scotty Brand Firth Of Clyde Fillies’ Stakes

Scarlett Bear (1pt win only 12/1)

Still a maiden but was on the premise in a decent looking race last time out. Could well be able to put that experience to good use here in this similar looking contest. Consistent in all 4 runs to date coming up against decent opposition in all 4 races.

15:40 Ayr 19 Sep 2020

QTS Ayr Gold Cup Handicap

Bungee Jump (0.5pt EW 50/1 6 places Will Hill)

Bit of a wildcard selection this one. Last couple of runs have not been very good at all but prior to that had been running very well indeed. Returned to action with a commanding victory in a race that has since worked out and finished runner up in a listed event. If able to rediscover that form looks to hold decent EW chances at a huge price. Yard don’t often venture this far North so worth a pop.

14:15 Newbury 19 Sep 2020

Dubai Duty Free Handicap

Kingbrook (1pt win only 10/1)

A good 3rd on return from a lengthy lay of finishing just in behind today’s favourite from the John Gosden yard. Should come on for that run and is well worth a try at this price here. Well bred runner who appreciated the step up to this trip last time out. Very interesting ex Mark Johnstone runner.

16:30 Newbury 19 Sep 2020

Heatherwold Stud Handicap

Nigel Nott (1pt win only 12/1)

This ones latest run in a race that is working out pretty well tells us that he is on a fair mark here. This race looks to be a little more competitive so will demand improvement and will need to prove as effective on turf. Is bred to be just as effective however and may just be slightly better if anything. S De Sousa is an eyecatching booking in the saddle.

Arran Scottish Sprint EBF Fillies’ Stakes

American Lady (1pt win only 12/1)

A good 2nd here over CD back in June and travels across from Ireland having not been disgraced in much better company last time out. 4 places available for the EW backers but we go all in for the win with the booking of Ben Curtis giving us a boost of confidence.

15:55 Ayr 18 Sep 2020

QTS Ayr Bronze Cup Handicap

Flying Pursuit (1pt win only 8/1)

Has a decent record here over this trip and has had his sights lowered this year a little from this meeting last year. Sitting on a very handy mark for a very shrewd yard who are in decent form of late too. Has placed in the Gold cup here before and despite being on a long losing run this current mark cannot be ignored returning here with conditions to suit.

16:05 Catterick 18 Sep 2020

Bet At Handicap

Trumpets Call (1pt win only 13/2)

Falling in the weights to what looks a more realistic mark for this local yard. Has the visor on for the first time which if having the desired effect could make all the difference today. Placed over CD on handicap debut from 4lb higher and has improved slightly each run since. Coming to the boil and will be winning soon.

17:10 Kempton 18 Sep 2020

Unibet Thanks The Frontline Workers Nursery

Light Wakeup (1pt win only 10/1)

Showed signs of improvement for debut run when 3rd in an above average race at Wolverhamton in early August. Has been given time again to come on for that run and this opening mark here looks a fair one if able to improve even slightly.

14:30 Newbury 18 Sep 2020

Dubai Duty Free Handicap

Stylehunter (1pt win only 10/1)

Useful horse who has performed well in and around this level for some time. Very consistent and will have come on for his latest run. Yard are absoloutely flying at present with 10 winners in the last 14 days for a 34% strike rate and they are 3 wins and 2 placed from 5 here this term for a 60% win rate. W Buick takes the ride and he is yet to finish out of the money when teaming up with this one.

Signs Express Handicap

Drew Breeze (1pt win only 9/1)

Going from 1lb out of the handicap here so a slight risk involved but steps up in trip here which on breeding could well unlock a little more. Ran a pleasing 3rd on yard debut after joining from Stella Barclay and could well improve on that here. Yards record here over the last 12 months is pretty decent with 5/23 for a 21% strike and a more impressive LSP of +31.

15:15 Bath 13 Sep 2020 

Best Free Tips At Handicap

Derek Le Grand (0.5pt EW 33/1 4places Betfred)

One from the tracker with which we are chancing our arm slightly. 4 places available which certainly helps our confidence a little. Ran a very good second over this trip on Good to Firm ground back in July from this mark and has possibly not been seen to best effect in more testing conditions since. Gets that ground again here and could outrun these odds today.

15:45 Bath 13 Sep 2020 

Final Furlong Podcast Handicap

Able Kane (1pt win only 6/1)

Put in a decent effort here over CD back in July on similar ground to today and has since under performed on softer conditions. Returns here some 5lb lower and has to be in with a chance if rediscovering that form. Visor applied which could help him settle so fingers crossed for a big run.

15:25 Chelmsford City 13 Sep 2020 Handicap

Silver Line (1pt win only 4/1)

I might need my head testing as this would possibly look an impossible ask to some, comes in from almost a year off the track and giving away 10lb+ to the field. Was found out on Soft ground when last seen in a very hot looking handicap however and is worth another try here. Possibly a better horse than handicap company and despite the long lay off has proven to go well fresh before. Prior to that last run he had put in a great effort giving weight away to a couple of very classy performers, including a G1 winner. Yard have a very good record here with a near 30% strike too so not one to dismiss.

16:05 Wolverhampton 13 Sep 2020 

Follow At The Races On Twitter Handicap

True Destiny (1pt win only 11/2)

Ran an out of character bad race last time out but before that was running consistently well at a much higher level than this. Yard are in great form and this horse is equally as effective if not more on the AW. Huge drop in grade today and eased a couple of pounds for a bang in form yard. Whats not to like. Yards only runner on the card and Jason Watson travels in for the ride

17:35 Wolverhampton 13 Sep 2020 

Sky Sports Racing HD Virgin 535 Handicap

Divine Consent (1pt win only 7/1)

Somewhat of an unknown quantity this one and comes here with his yard not really firing. Goes for top connections however and makes handicap debut having been gelded and stepping back up markedly in trip. Plenty of unknowns but is well bred and will have better races than this within given time. Yards only runner on the card and Tom Marqand takes the ride

Heed Your Hunch At Betway Handicap

Go Bob Go (0.5pt EW 25/1)

Still a maiden after 5 attemps but comes here with the yard going well. Steps back up quite significantly in trip here in first time cheekpieces and if having the desired effect on this better ground then should outrun these odds. Mark has fallen a further 4lb and although a risky one, its also one we are willing to take the plunge on at these odds.

Shine So Bright (0.5pt EW 20/1 B365)

Already a G2 winner last term and came here last year to try his hand in this race. Was a little disappointing however after running very keenly early on and returns 12 months later for another pop. Arrives on the back of a couple of solid runs and having been freshened up with a short break. Closely matched with a few of these here on best form and has conditions to suit. Overpriced.

17:00 Lingfield 12 Sep 2020 

Betway Casino Handicap

Magical Ride (1pt win only 11/2)

Previous CD winner who can be forgiven his last run when missing the break. Comes here wearing the visor for the first time dropping in grade and eased in the weights too. Hollie Doyle is booked for the ride and theres plenty to like about this one for Richard Spencer. Has a great draw to get involved here.

18:00 Lingfield 12 Sep 2020 

Read Andrew Balding On Betway Insider Handicap

Zulu Girl (0.5pt EW 20/1 4 places Will Hill)

Another from the in form Eve Johnson Houghton yard and another who looks overpriced coming here with untapped potential. Blinkers on for the first time which hopefully could eek out a little more here. Has placed twice from just 4 runs from off a 4lb higher mark in similar conditions and is well worth another try at these generous odds with 4places on offer. Any money for this runner could prove significant.

17:40 Musselburgh 12 Sep 2020

Bet At Handicap

Fred (1pt win only 5/1)

A lightly raced 3 year old from the Mark Johnstone yard who on best form from last year looks fairly treated here. Was not given a hard time last time out returning from a 381 day lay off having been gelded too. Much better can be expected here with PJ McDonald in the saddle eased a couple of pounds.

Lightly raced sort from the in form John Gosden yard. Returns to the AW following a pleasing return to action in a better race than this. Looks to be on a very workable mark and should have come on for that run.

19:30 Chelmsford City 10 Sep 2020 Now Never Beaten By SP Handicap

Thegreatestshowman (1pt win only 9/2)

Was due to run at Catterick on Tuesday and was withdrawn that day in favour of this outing. Has won here before over 6f but is equally as effective over this minimum trip. Small field could play into his favour and Hollie Doyle on board is a big positive. Blinkers on for the first time and should go close.

15:55 Chepstow 10 Sep 2020

Vape (0.5pt EW 20/1)

Disappointing on debut for this yard just 18 days ago and is quickly switched back to turf. On pick of earlier form is on a fair mark here and yard have a decent record here and has been profitable to follow too over the last 12 months.

13:00 Haydock 10 Sep 2020

Join Racing TV Now Handicap

Selecto (1pt win only 9/1)

Some 7lb below his decent opening run of the season which came here over CD. Yard are absoloutly on fire at present. Will act on the soft ground and has to go very close from this mark. First time blinkers could well just sharpen him up too.

16:40 Haydock 10 Sep 2020

Visit Handicap

Evening Spirit (1pt win only 13/2)

Too early to rule this one out following a couple of lack lustre performances. Based on her earlier form as a juvenile is not harshly treated and this yard enjoy their fair share of winners here with a 32% win strike in the last 12 months.
