Here are the best of today’s horse racing tips for Tuesday, 12th April 2022.

All times listed are GMT.

14:25 Newmarket Handicap Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Listed
Age: 3-year-olds only
Declared Runners: 5
Distance: 7f

Race Preview

RIBHI won two of three matches last season and received weight from everyone else in this field.

Both of his wins came at Salisbury.

In between those Ribhi was pushed up to tackle a Listed run at Doncaster and he finished a very credible fifth on a 7f trip.

At the start of this new season, he looks as if he could go even better. The weights could pan out in his favour.

NEW SCIENCE is another of the big threats in this competitive renewal, and he’s still targeting the 2000 Guineas this season.

He was last seen at Meydan in February on his opener for the year, recovering from a slow start to take third.

New Science definitely rates as a danger in this one, but he is giving weight to everyone else in this small field.

TACARIB BAY can’t be overlooked as he makes his return for what will be just his third racetrack appearance.

He opened his account for the first time of asking last spring and followed that up with a strong third in a Group 3 at Newbury.

Tacarib Bay is still green, like the rest of these 3-year-olds, obviously.

But he looks to have a lot more to come and like New Science, Tacarib Bay holds a 2000 Guineas entry.

Tip: RIBHI 10/3

Ones to watch: Tacarib Bay 9/4, New Science 13/8

15:00 Newmarket Earl Of Sefton Stakes Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Group 3
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 7
Distance: 1m 1f

Race Preview

MASTER OF THE SEAS makes his return after a break of almost six months on Tuesday.

Last season he went so very close in the 2000 Guineas, getting touched off by a short head.

He posted just two runs following that, neither yielding a win.

Master Of The Seas has been gelded during his time off and his form is the pick of the bunch.

MEGALLEN is definitely a threat in this field because this looks like being the perfect test for him.

There was a lot to like about his 3-year-old campaign, winning twice during the course of the season.

The pick of Megallen’s form was a victory in the Sovereign Stakes at Salisbury and should be heavily involved.

CATCH TWENTY TWO is interesting here having put in some good form over in South Africa.

He makes a debut for a new yard and he did place at the top level in South Africa so has some ability about him.


Ones to watch: Master Of The Seas 11/10, Catch Twenty Two 12/1

15:35 Newmarket Nell Gwyn Stakes Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Fillies’ Group 3
Age: 3-year-olds only
Declared Runners: 9
Distance: 7f

Race Preview

PERFECT NEWS landed a course and distance win in September, scoring the win in a nursery.

On his follow up, which was the final run of his campaign, he was back at course and distance, this time in a Group 3.

Perfect News was third in that October run. He is in action for last year’s winning stable and should go well.

CACHET has some nice pieces of form to her name, although she has only managed one novice win so far, which isn’t as hot as some of her rivals.

Last season Cachet took a palace finish here at Newmarket in the Group 2 Rockfel and in a Group 1 later in the autumn.

Cachet should be back stronger and a bold run will be expected of her.

HELLO YOU is the other shortlisted pick for this year’s Nell Gwyn which doesn’t look particularly strong of a renewal.

Hello You beat Cachet in last season’s Rockfel at course and distance.

She then went to the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies’ Turf and ran a credible fifth.


Ones to watch: Cachet 2/1, Hello You 5/2

14:40 Ayr Handicap Chase Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 4
Age: 5-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 9
Distance: 2m 5 1/2f

Race Preview

HIDDEN COMMANDER is the big player in this field and it is hard to see how he gets knocked over.

He romped to success at Kelso last weekend and while he is under a 7lb penalty, Hidden Commander clearly sets the standard.

ARDERA CROSS knows all about Ayr having won at the venue six times before and could give the favourite something to think about.

The latest of his victories at Ayr was in February.

His latest run was a 2m chase here which was just too much for him. This may be more his jam.

MONSIEUR CO has been in the places for each of his last three runs and could launch a bid.

He’s good and reliable enough to at least carry some place claims and just gets the nod over last time out faller UPDANDATIT for claims.


Ones to watch: Ardera Cross 9/1, Monsieur Co 8/1

15:15 Ayr Mares’ Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 5
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 10
Distance: 2m 5f

Race Preview

RACKS CROSS could bring her from forward now that she is getting pushed up further instances.

She looks quite lively and has put in solid efforts in defeat on her two runs this season.

Racks Cross was here at Ayr last time out on just her second handicap appearance taking fourth.

ON WE GO has won at the course and distance before and did place last autumn from a higher market.

But she does need a bit of a revival as her form petered out the last term.

On We Go has won once before, which was at C&D distance and she’s with a new yard on Tuesday.

MISS BAMBI warrants some respect as well as makes her first appearance for about six months.

She’s only 1lb up from when she scored at Hereford on her last run of the campaign.

Fortune helped her out there, but it was still a reasonable step forward in form by her.


Ones to watch: Miss Bamby 10/3, On We Go 3/1

15:50 Ayr Handicap Hurdle Race Preview

YOU SOME BOY completed a hattrick last season, getting the job done at Wetherby on a 3m trip.

He was last seen 50 days ago seeking a four-timer when he showed up at Cartmel on a revised mark.

You Some Boy found it tough, but warrants respect nonetheless as he’s refreshed.

RELEASE THE KRAKEN looks to be on a good enough mark to get himself into the picture on Tuesday.

His jumping let him down a couple of times at the end of last season.

But Release The Kraken is refreshed and with a new yard and perhaps worth revisiting.

SHOESHINE BOY has finished as the runner-up in each of his last four efforts, including at C&D.

He was defeated only by a short head at course and distance last month.

He has to be considered as his consistency speaks volumes.

Tip: YOU SOME BOY 10/1

Ones to watch: Release The Kraken 6/1, Shoeshine Boy 9/2
