Today’s Horse Racing Tip

This is a good contest to open with and INVEIGLE is pulling in plenty of interest for this contest. He won on the turf at Yarmouth in June.

His two subsequent runs haven’t quite been as good as that, but he drops into calmer waters which should boost his chances.

So because of that, we think that ARAFI could be the way to go as a horse racing tip at 11/2* (betting odds recorded 21:26 GMT on 2nd September 2021 at William Hill).

On her penultimate, she scored well on a mile trip at Windsor and then went to a warm contest at Chelmsford on her latest.

Arafi performed well in that latest run a couple of weeks ago and may well get in the thick of things.

Filling out the shortlist with place claims is AJYAALL who has done well this season in defeat. There’s been a bit of progress still from him.

He gets the hood back on after being unsettled last time out, which should help him challenge.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

LOVE IS GOLDEN is the way to go in horse racing betting for this contest at 6/4* (betting odds recorded 21:26 GMT on 2nd September 2021 at William Hill).

He has been in great form lately and scored at Chester on his penultimate run. Love is golden followed that up with a good second at Hamilton last week.

Mark Johnston’s three year old easily looks to be the pick of the bunch for this one. RECOVERY RUN should have a chance at the places.

He comes down in both trip and in grade as well after going in the Geoffrey Freer (Group 3) on his latest, which was three weeks ago.

He’s been in some stronger races than this for the season and should feature.

The other to potentially consider is MY FRANKEL who hasn’t found a lot of consistency lately

. He opened the season with a score at Kempton though and may challenge for the minor money.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

Is this simply a two-way battle between FANTASTIC FOX and UNCLE BRYN who are current joint 9/4 favourites* (betting odds recorded 21:26 GMT on 2nd September 2021 at William Hill)?

There was an easy win for Fantastic Fox on his latest run, which was on softer ground and he gets a big hike of 6lb for that win.

He is going in the right direction though after that Haydock win.

Uncle Bryn has potential for a top yard and is looking for bounceback after misfires in a couple of spring efforts. But he still warrants some big respect.

But we are going against both of them to back WALHAAN to get off the mark for the first time in the UK. He should be one of the big players in the field.

There is a quote of 9/2 for the win for Walhaan* (betting odds recorded 21:26 GMT on 2nd September 2021 at William Hill)?

Walhaan is supported with the booking of Ryan Moore and following a very good close third at Newbury on a 1m trip on his latest, Walhaan takes slight preference.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

This is a wide-open contest but there are big claims from MITROSONFIRE who take on a 3lb rise for a recent success.

He scored at Newmarket last month, which followed a success at Ascot, both of those wins happening at this distance.

So there are claims here at 4/1 who still looks to have a little more to come* (betting odds recorded 21:26 GMT on 2nd September 2021 at William Hill).

This doesn’t look as if it’s a particularly quick sprint and therefore EMBOUR may have a shot from slightly longer odds.

He was an excellent second on a return to form at Catterick, just getting touched off in that contest. That was an improvement from a tough run in the Great St Wilfrid.

In the Great St Wilfrid, Embour found himself behind both GOLDEN APOLLO and MANIGORDO, both of which re-oppose.

So this is a really interesting contest with all of these back together. Manigordo may be the way to go for the final shortlist selection.

His yard just looks as if they are getting what they want out of him in terms of tactics lately.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

BUNIANN is our 15/2 horse racing tip for this handicap at Haydock* (betting odds recorded 21:26 GMT on 2nd September 2021 at William Hill).

He was a little unlucky on his latest run at Newmarket, ending up with a fourth-place finish. For that, he stays at the same mark.

There has been good consistent form from Buniann this season in defeat, and he may just get there to open his account on the turf.

NEVER DARK has claims after collecting a 5f handicap win at Musselburgh two weeks ago. There has been a rise of 3lb for him to deal with, which may slow him up a touch.

The other for the shortlist is GLOBAL HUMOR who scored on his penultimate run. That was his third win of the year.

He followed up that win at Ayr with a good third at Carlisle on his last, so he remains in good form and therefore a threat.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

SPIRITED GUEST may not be totally out of this at 10/1* (betting odds recorded 21:26 GMT on 2nd September 2021 at William Hill).

He has won three wins this season and one of those was a course and distance victory in July. He wasn’t great on his latest effort, however.

That was at Yarmouth, but at the same time, some excuses were there. He has a lot on his plate at his current mark but is more than capable if he is in the mood.

DANCING IN THE WOODS rates as a danger in this contest. He was third on a course and distance effort a month ago.

That came after picking up another win for the season at Newmarket on a 6f trip. The hood goes on which should help further.

PRONTISSIMO gets the tongue strap for the first time. On his handicap debut at Doncaster in July, he took an excellent second place.

That was the same result for his latest on the wall weather. With the new equipment and a drop in trip, Prontissimo piques interest.
