Today’s Horse Racing Tip

We are going with the course form of DE VEGAS KID at 7/2 as our first horse racing tip of the day* (betting odds recorded 17:53 GMT on 17th May 2021 at William Hill).

He has won three times at course and distance. He can’t be counted out of landing another. He was last seen in action here on a slightly shorter trip.

De Vegas Kid did as well as he could to claim a second-place finish in the contest. But the move back up to the mile is going to bring more out of the seven-year-old.

The other big player in the field is likely to be WIDAAD who scored at Newmarket recently and looks to be in very good shape.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

Sitting on a good mark is SOYOYNIQUE who is our 7/2 selection as a horse racing tip* (betting odds recorded 17:53 GMT on 17th May 2021 at William Hill).

He was just beaten in a hattrick attempt three weeks ago, not quite seen to his best effect there. But the current form is clearly there.

Soyounique got off the mark in handicapping here in march and then delivered his second at Lingfield. We think that the recent effort back at the latter venue can be excused.

He’s in great heart and a definite threat.

The others to watch out for in this contest are CLEGANE who could enjoy the move back to the all-weather and STREET POET who missed out on a hattrick on his latest run.

Ilza’eem 5/2

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

There are plenty of decent claims in this handicap. We are pulling towards FINAL VOYAGE as a 10/1 contender* (betting odds recorded 17:53 GMT on 17th May 2021 at William Hill).

He has won three times before at course and distance. His last contest was a Listed effort at Newcastle and this is much calmer waters than that.

That miss at Newcastle saw Final Voyage miss out on a hattrick for the season. This has to represent a decent chance for him to get back to winning ways.

He does give 4lb to ILZA’EEM which pulls that rival into the picture a little bit, after scoring at Redcar on his return.

Another to watch out for in this competitive field is GREAT KING who was very impressive in winning at Newcastle last time out.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

10/3 shot ECLAIR DES SABLONS is our horse racing tip for this one* (betting odds recorded 17:53 GMT on 17th May 2021 at William Hill). He went well the last two times.

On his penultimate run, he took a win at Exeter in April and performed well back at the same venue on his follow up.

It was a second palace finish for Eclair Des Sablons back at Exeter 26 days ago. He looks to have plenty to offer, especially with the headgear looking a positive most.

KLOUD GATE can’t be dismissed here after scoring at course and distance last time out. He now receives a 7lb bump in the ratings.

THE KNOT IS TIED looks to have some decent place claims for the contest.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

We are going to stick with 9/4 favourite JOLY MAKER for this effort* (betting odds recorded 17:53 GMT on 17th May 2021 at William Hill).

He was last seen in March collecting a third-place finish at Market Rasen. He has been sliding down the ratings and is at the point where looks ready to make that count.

Joly Maker returns to action with a 7lb conditional on his back as well.

Even though he couldn’t manage better than third last time out, there were definite signs in that Market Rasen contest that Joly Maker was shaping well and primed for more.

The other threats in the field look to be AIR HAIR LAIR and CATLOW who went well at this distance last time out.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

WOR VERGE is our 7/2 pick as a horse racing tip* (betting odds recorded 17:53 GMT on 17th May 2021 at William Hill).

He collected a win at Newcastle in March in what was a strong contest. He has since followed up with another score since then.

Wor Vege was last seen winning at Perth 26 days ago and didn’t really have to find top gear to do that. So there is still some improvement to come from him and looks as if he has a lot to offer in handicaps.

There has been a rise of 7lb in the ratings for Wor Verge but he looks as if he can handle that at the moment. He’s going in the right direction.

A threat in the field should be FOR THREE who looked credible enough last time out and he is sitting on a good mark.

FRIGHTENED RABBIT can’t be counted out of this either after a second-place at course and distance a couple of weeks ago.

Today’s Horse Racing Tip

This race is quite the puzzle. There’s not a great deal to go on here and certainly not a great deal of form.

TO THE LIMIT does get on to the shortlist after a decent effort at Perth last week. He ran out of steam on the 3m trip so will benefit from a shorter effort here.

We think the falling mark of ASHJAN is the way to go. He is worth chancing at 11/2 as a horse racing tip* (betting odds recorded 17:53 GMT on 17th May 2021 at William Hill).

He hasn’t won in 18 races now and the cheekpieces go back on. There were more promising signs last time out when he took a fourth place finish in a Kelso handicap a couple of months ago.

The drop in trip and where he is at in the ratings, does give him a decent enough chance in a wide-open field.
