UK Racing Best Bets - Tuesday 17 February 2020

Tuesday 17 February 2020

Neil Morrice brings us all of his best bets and tips from UK Racing at Musselburgh and Southwell on Tuesday 17 February 2020. 

Musselburgh Best Bets 

Race 4: FIRST ACCOUNT (3) 
Trainer: Keith Dalgleish 
Jockey: Craig Nichol 

With very few miles on the clock, FIRST ACCOUNT can return to winning ways in this novices’ handicap chase. The 6yo has changed stables since failing to justify significant market support at Hexham in November. Fresh from a subsequent break, he might be in lightly off a mark of 117.

Race 5: DUKE OF NAVAN (1) 
Trainer: Nicky Richards 
Jockey: R Day 

Veteran DUKE OF NAVAN is down a notch on the class ladder in this Class 3 and has a great chance of turning back the clock. He hasn’t won for over two years but only needs to repeat the level of a good run in defeat at Doncaster last time to show these foes a clean pair of heels.

Race 7: GRUMPY McGRUMPFACE (5) 
Trainer: Keith Dalgleish  
Jockey: Craig Nichol 

GRUMPY McGRUMPFACE is the value play in the concluding Bumper in which previous winner Easy As That will probably go off a warm favourite. The selection has troubled the judge on both starts and was gaining on La Chanteuse at Ayr last time which suggests he’s going to prove a threat to all if operating on this sharp course.

Southwell Best Bets 

Race 4: SAAHEQ (1) 
Trainer: Amanda Perrett 
Jockey: Joe Fanning

A rare runner here for the trainer of SAAHEQ who changed stables after his defeat of Samovar over this course and distance in the autumn. The strong travelling selection will get the hell for leather gallop he requires as there are three trailblazers in the 7-strong field. They should tee things up perfectly for him.

Race 5: SOCIAL CITY (2) 
Trainer: Tony Carroll 
Jockey: Hayley Turner 

SOCIAL CITY stays well but as well as winning over two miles has good form at this shorter trip. He missed out on a good opportunity last week and so comes here on the back of just two outings this year. He went down in a tight three-way finish at Lingfield last month, and has enjoyed a freshening month’s break for this.
