Neil Morrice brings us his best bets and tips for Wednesday’s racing from Yarmouth, Lingfield Park, Catterick Bridge, Kempton Park and Bath.
Race 6 No5 BOLTAWAY (Nap)
Trainer: Roger Charlton – Jockey: Paul Mulrennan
As the only three-year-old in the contest, BOLTAWAY has more scope for progression than his foes and represents a trainer who is a dab hand in this type of situation. The Dubawi colt posted back-to-back successes under Mulrennan in June, and with his tail up can complete a fine hat-trick.
Race 7 No7 RANI OF JHANSI
Trainer: David Simcock – Jockey: Pat Cosgrave
RANI OF JHANSI has taken home a cheque on both career outings over a mile, and if running up to the level that saw her chase home Seattle Rock at Newbury, will be hard to stop. The Invincible Spirit filly has been in good form on the Newmarket gallops since that latest outing a month ago.
Race 5 No8 PROFOUND ALEXANDER (Nap)
Trainer: William Muir – Jockey: Nicola Currie
The only bet on a tricky card is PROFOUND ALEXANDER. The most experienced in the field, the grey enjoyed this Polytrack surface when second to Ellade in a tight finish and has been freshened up to rate the one they all have to beat.
Race 1 No4 RUSSELLINTHEBUSHES (Nap)
Trainer: Tom Dascombe – Jockey: Danny Tudhope
RUSSELLINTHEBUSHES went out very quickly in the home straight after attracting plenty of support at Chester last time. Second in three of her four previous starts, the daughter of Bungle Inthejungle can regain her momentum in a race where she holds all the cards.
Race 6 No3 POLAM LANE
Trainer: David Barron – Jockey: Connor Beasley
On his first run in a handicap, POLAM LANE takes the eye. He raised his game to finish in the money on latest outing at Ripon, and should appreciate operating over a longer trip today.
Race 3 No11 DIDTHEYLEAVEUOUTTO (Nap)
Trainer: Nick Gifford – Jockey: Dougie Costello
In the famous silks of JP McManus, DIDTHEYLEAVEUOUTTO takes the eye off near bottom weight in this stayers’ handicap. He raised his game when the money was down to score tidily at Nottingham, since when he’s missed an opportunity, but this race looks perfect for him to build on that initial success.
Race 6 No5 STORMBOMBER
Trainer: Michael Madgwick – Jockey: Daniel Muscutt
The ultra-consistent STORMBOMBER endured a rare off day when finishing last at Brighton, but was probably not himself on that occasion. With four earning runs in succession preceding it, the chances are he will bounce back to get into the frame at the very least.
Race 4 No7 ORIENTAL BEAUTY (Each Way)
Trainer: Mick Channon – Jockey: Rob Hornby
ORIENTAL BEAUTY has shown good pace in both career starts, improving from her Goodwood debut to trouble the judge at Chepstow. She’s a galloper who lacks a turn of foot, and her chance will improve if she’s ridden positively from the front.
Race 5 No3 ARCADIAN NIGHTS (Nap)
Trainer: Mick a Hannon – Jockey: David Probert
Having taken a keen grip, ARCADIAN NIGHTS would have been happier given his head rather than being restrained on his Nottingham comeback. This progressive individual had nothing left at the finish but needs to be given the chance to redeem himself under a different jockey.
