Neil Morrice shares all of his best bets and tips for Tuesday’s racing coming your way from Beverley, Chepstow, Sedgefield, Lingfield Park and Newcastle on 10 May 2022.
Race 5 No10 GIBSIDE
Trainer: Tim Easterby – Jockey: Duran Fentiman
There’s plenty to recommend GIBSIDE receiving weight from each of his foes in this three-year-old only handicap. He put in a career best when chasing home Appier at Beverley, a run that strongly indicates he’s better than his current mark implies.
Race 7 No8 TAMARAMA (Nap)
Trainer: Charlie Hills – Jockey: Ben Curtis
Hills has made a very solid start to the campaign and TAMARAMA should be another scorer from Farringdon Place. The daughter of Muhaarar deserves a change of luck after a string of earning efforts, latterly a narrow defeat at Ripon.
Race 3 No14 DIAMOND COTTAGE (Each Way)
Trainer: Malcolm Saunders – Jockey: John Egan
Veterans Saunders and Egan are always worth noting when teaming-up, so a waiter on DIAMOND COTTAGE in this sprint handicap makes sense. The mare is a 24-race maiden but will surely enjoy the rub of the green that is due to come her way soon.
Race 4 No4 DESPERATE HERO (Nap)
Trainer: Mick Channon – Jockey: Darragh Keenan
From a stable whose juveniles regularly step up on their second start, DESPERATE HERO can endorse with a first success the promise of his staying-on second to Rocket Rodney on his debut at Goodwood. The grey is strongly fancied to give Channon a welcome change of luck.
Race 7 No4 TWILIGHT PRINCE
Trainer: Peter Bowen – Jockey: Hollie Doyle
A rare runner on the Flat for his astute trainer, TWILIGHT PRINCE can build on an eye taking run here last month. He stayed on to claim a minor cheque and should now be fully primed to put a win on the board.
Race 1 No7 BALEARIC
Trainer: Jonjo O’Neill – Jockey: Jonjo O’Neill Jr
BALEARIC posted a couple of successes on the Flat and it’s interesting that his owners are now spreading their wings into the National Hunt arena. The Gleneagles gelding has looked the part in practise for this first run over hurdles.
Race 4 No2 LUCKY ONE (Nap)
Trainer: Dan Skelton – Jockey: Harry Skelton
Nero Rock has the best recent form but LUCKY ONE may have the credentials to give him the edge in this four-cornered novices’ limited handicap chase. The selection ran a cracker to finish just out of the money in Sandown’s Imperial Cup, and can show he’s going to be better now going down the chasing route.
Race 6 No2 CUMULONIMBUS (Nap)
Trainer: Charlie Fellowes – Jockey: Kieran Shoemark
CUMULONIMBUS is in calmer waters than the race at Ascot he was carded to make his debut in a handicap. The Night Of Thunder colt has shown ability in each of his three starts to obtain a mark, and needs to be taken very seriously.
Race 7 No11 MEADRAM
Trainer: Marcus Tregoning – Jockey: Dane O’Neill
MEADRAM ran well to trouble the judge on his return to action here last month. He’s been in good form at home, and makes a lot of sense as the one to be on getting weight from the majority of his opponents.
Race 1 No2 MURAU
Trainer: James Fanshawe – Jockey: Paul Mulrennan
After earning on his first three outings under Rules, MURAU scorched home on his seasonal reappearance over this course and distance in March. Backed as if defeat was out of the question that day, he’s ready to make further progress now switched to handicaps.
Race 4 No1 ADJOURN
Trainer: David Simcock – Jockey: Jamie Spencer
ADJOURN ran well on both 2021 outings on turf and now returns for a trainer/jockey combo that are amongst the winners. He’s worked well on an all-weather facility in Newmarket and can outpoint the equally promising Liseo.
Race 6 No9 WILLEM TWEE (Nap)
Trainer: James Fanshawe – Jockey: Daniel Muscutt
Ribchester colt WILLEM TWEE put in an eye taking first effort on Polytrack and now switches to Tapeta. Green on that occasion, he should know a lot more and be competitive.
