Race Preview

THE COVEX KID has found some wonderful form this season and has collected four wins in his last six.

He has been wonderfully progressive and brings massive claims here. The latest of his 2022 wins was at the course and distance three weeks ago.

The Convex Kid gets an extra 8lb rise to work with now. But he was an emphatic winner last time out and warrants respect.

GRANARY QUEEN looks like being a player in this contest as well, having won two of her last three trips.

She handled the pressure well to get her nose in front at Leicester a couple of weeks ago.

Granary Queen isn’t always on point with attitude but is likely to feature.

ENGLISH SPIRIT rounds out the selections for this fixture in horse racing tips.

There was a victory for English Spirit on his penultimate run, which was at Wolverhampton in May.

He followed that up with a runner-up spot at Windsor a month ago. He has produced a very consistent season and he should be right back in the frame.


Ones to watch: Granary Queen 11/2, English Spirit 11/2

GIDWA is probably going to be a player in this one and he is a former course and distance winner.

The latest victory that he took was at Southwell in February.

It’s been four efforts since then and he took three runners-up spots in that sequence.

Gidwa was last seen at Wolverhampton three weeks ago and he could enjoy a decent return here having won his one previous trip here.

WHITE UMBRELLA could have something to offer as she steps into handicapping for the first time in midweek.

She got off the mark at the third time of asking, scoring cosily a couple of months ago in a minor event at Chepstow.

White Umbrella should have plenty to offer.

PENGUIN ISLAND looks capable of a big performance and that may not be far away.

She did a good job in a Salisbury handicap when last seen 52 days ago.

Penguin Island is still a maiden, but this is a wide-open affair that she can get involved in.

One final selection to consider in this bigger field is KINGOFHELL who produced a good effort at Haydock last time out.

That was an encouraging run, earning a place finish. Kingofhell gets the blinkers for the first time on Wednesday and could get in it.


Ones to watch: Gidwa 4/1, Penguin Island 11/1

Race Type: Class 4
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 8
Distance: 1m 4f

Race Preview

DUKE OF VERONA should be heavily involved in this contest after picking up a victory last time out at Sandown.

Ryan Moore jumps in the saddle on Wednesday, which is a big boost.

Duke Of Verona did come up with a career-best last time out and didn’t really need to find too much improvement to get it.

This looks tougher, and as long as the pace doesn’t get too hot, then he should be a player.

STRAWBERRI warrants some consideration in this contest after taking a good third at Newcastle 39 days ago.

The move to this mid-distance could see her come up with some nice progress. She’s in good hands and can get right in the frame.

VANITY AFFAIR was running hot last season, picking up a hattrick towards the end of the camping.

Vanity Affair was right in form when she landed a runner-up spot at Haydock in a handicap on her latest effort. She should be there.


Ones to watch: Vanity Affair 5/1, Duke Of Verona 3/1

15:20 Pontefract Handicap Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 3
Age: 3-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 6
Distance: 2m 1f

Race Preview

NIKHI claimed a victory on her last tip, doing a good job to battle to the front at Chester in a 2m handicap last time out.

Nikhi only comes up 2lb for that winning effort, which means that she has a big chance of remaining competitive. She has the staying ability to take this.

KINCADE has produced consistent form this season, getting in the frame in all three runs so far.

He is the stablemate of Nikhi from Jedd O’Keeffe’s yard. This sterner test of stamina looks like suiting him better so he should make his presence felt.

MONSIEUR LAMBRAYS did get to the line first at York on his penultimate run. But he was knocked back to a place for interference.

He was then sent to the Northumberland Vase which was too much for him.

This is much calmer waters that he slides into in midweek which means that Monsieur Lambrays is a big threat.

Tip: NIKHI 6/4

Ones to watch: Kincade 5/2, Monsieur Lambrays 10/3

Race Type: Class 4
Age: 3-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 10
Distance: 6f

Race Preview

COMMANDMENT has produced winning form this season, taking a victory on his penultimate run.

That was a course and distance score that he landed in June. Her follow-up was a third-place finisher at Yarmouth in a fixture that didn’t particularly pan out in her favour.

A good strong pace in this fixture will get Commandment close.

CORINTHIA KNIGHT was at course and distance last time out and landed the victory in a higher class.

He will be under a 4lb penalty on Wednesday for that score. It was the second win in his last four runs and Corinthia Light has taken his tally to four C&D wins now.

FAST AND LOOSE is not to be written out of this as he picked up a win at Catterick last time out.

That saw him get off the mark and offer plenty of encouragement.

That’s been back-to-back good efforts from Fast And Loose. This is tougher, but it’s not out of his reach.


Ones to watch: Commandment 8/2, Fast And Loose 9/1

19:10 Yarmouth Handicap Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 5
Age: 3-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 8
Distance: 5f

Race Preview

ELECTRIC LOVE has won a couple of course and distance efforts before. She was last seen here at Yarmouth last month.

But it was a rare below-par effort from here in a C&D handicap.

Having been eased in the ratings and with the addition of first-time cheekpieces, there’s a chance for Electric Love to get back on track.

HAVEONEYERSELF is another former course and distance winner, who was a good runner-up here at Yarmouth on his penultimate run.

His follow-up at Brighton didn’t see him get anywhere near the frame.

However, he slides back to his last winning mark so rates as a danger.

GRANDFATHER TOM should be in the rocking as well in this one after some good consistent place efforts recently.

He is a former course and distance winner as well. Grandfather Tom was a runner-up at Windsor last time out from a mark of 1lb higher.


Ones to watch: Grandfather Tom 9/2, Haveoneyerself 4/1
