Today’s Horse Racing Tip

CONTINGENCY FEE is a 13/2 option for this race as a betting tip* (betting odds recorded 22:12 GMT on August 4th 2021 at William Hill).

He completed a four-timer two weeks ago with a success at Bath in a small field.

It’s been tremendous form from Contingency Fee lately and while he has come up 13lb from his first win in this sequence, he looks to have more.

His track record at Brighton speaks for itself as well, having won four of seven efforts here before. This is a tougher assignment, but he could still be a big player.

RAVENS ARK gets the cheekpieces on for this one and poses a threat as well. He is a previous course and distance winner, getting a score at this venue most recently in May.

After a strong place finish at Sandown a couple of weeks ago, Ravens Ark should be in this.

BERRAHRI has won two of his last three runs and will return to action under a 4lb penalty.

He is going well at the moment after scoring a week ago at Epsom and can’t be dismissed in a very good-looking fixture.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

SWEET BELIEVER has to be the way to go in this contest at 10/11* (betting odds recorded 22:12 GMT on August 4th 2021 at William Hill).

Just over a week ago she picked up a course and distance victory under the same jockey. So she continued on her path which looks nice and progressive.

There is a 6lb penalty that she deals with in this one, but after her recent double, that may not be enough to slow her up yet.

GIVE IT SOME TEDDY comes in under a 4lb penalty after taking a superb win at Thirsk on the weekend.

This is, therefore, a short turnaround for the four-time course and distance winner. He could get in the mix if this isn’t too soon for him.

There has been decent form from DELGReY BOY in his last six. He picked up a win at Three Ks in may and has taken a place finish in his last five.

He looked troubled on the softer ground on his latest run at Pontefract but could have more to offer here.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

AQUAMAN has remained in excellent form since getting off the mark at Catterick in April. He also picked up a win on his latest run.

Aquaman was just reeled in at the post at Newmarket from a rating of 2lb lower in the handicap.

The conditions look good for Thursday and he has a big chance.

BROKEN SPEAR has fallen to his last winning mark, which piques interest. He took a recent mid-field finish in a York handicap a month ago.

He makes the switch back down to a 7f trip for this one.

With a 5lb claimer as well, Broken Spear could be worth considering as a horse racing tip at 17/2* (betting odds recorded 22:12 GMT on August 4th 2021 at William Hill).

Another for the shortlist is SCOTTISH SUMMER who has won here at Redcar before.

He has placed in each of his last three runs, getting a bit crowded out of things in a third-place finish at York on his latest run two weeks ago.

19:02 Sandown Handicap Today’s Horse Racing Tips & Odds

Mashhoor 5/2
Rewired 11/4
Without Revenge 4/1
Arenas Del Tiempo 5/1
Farhan 9/1
Royal Air Force 9/1
Lexington Knight 16/1

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

From the bottom of the weighs ARENAS DEL TIEMPO is well worth a look in this contest at 5/1* (betting odds recorded 22:12 GMT on August 4th 2021 at William Hill).

She is sitting on a hattrick after a positive change of tactics and she claimed a decisive victory over course and distance on her latest.

Arenas Del Tiempo will need to find a career best here from 6lb up in the ratings, but she is in great heart at the moment.

MASHHOOR will probably be in this one but has come up a little bit short on his last two runs.

The favourite was defeated on his handicap debut at Newmarket in June on his latest run.

REWIRED went well over course and distance on his latest run. He didn’t quite get the rub of the green there in a strong race.

But there was enough to suggest that he could have a strong say in this run on Thursday.

Amanda Hug’n’kiss 5/4
Silky Wilkie 2/1
Olivetti 7/2
My Little Tip 15/2

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

There looks to be plenty of potential in AMANDA HUG’N’KISS so we are rolling with her for this contest at 5/4 as our horse racing tip* (betting odds recorded 22:12 GMT on August 4th 2021 at William Hill).

She claimed a runner up spot over course and distance in a maiden on her debut a couple of weeks ago.

She will likely be back in the thick of things after finishing well in that race.

SILKY WILKIE has claimed a runner-up spot in his two outings so far.

He conceded 7lb to the winner in his last race. Has a chance of getting close once again.

Castana Dia 2/1
Desert Gulf 7/2
Giogiobbo 4/1
Spirited Guest 11/2
Invincible Lame 15/2
Aljari 15/2

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

GIOGIOBBO is worth a look at 4/1 in racing betting* (betting odds recorded 22:12 GMT on August 4th 2021 at William Hill).

He missed out on the completion of a four-timer on his latest run. But Giogiobbo ran a brilliant race nonetheless after taking fourth place in a field of 14 in a York Handicap.

He has to warrant respect on the back of that superb effort. A threat to him is CASTANA DIA who is another who warrants respect.

Castana Dia has won two of her last three and the latest of those was by a neck over course and distance ahead of the opposing Spirited Guest. She has more in the tank and poses a big threat.

DESERT GULF claimed a win three weeks ago at course and distance. He stuck to his task pretty well in that one and has something to spare. Desert Gulf comes up 4lb but still has a decent shot.
