2:40 Bath Racing Tips (26th July) Handicap

No Bull - Racing Tips
2:40 BATH - 5F 160Yards
I'm not a fan of this in-between distance but this might be golden nugget, I've heard a few times from someone in the know that they have expected a big run from JAGANORY 12/1 and I've given it very little chance but here it can follow OUR LORD 8/1 my 2nd top rated and then stay on strongly at the finish but I will be backing both horses to cover the angles.


Jaganory 16/1 7th
NR: Our Lord
CATTERICK 4.00
Only 7 runners but it's a competitive race with 3 horses having good chances to win, LANDING NIGHT 6/1 is my 3rd top rated but the trainer is 3-10 at this course with her older horses and the jockey is 3-20 for the stable so looks a positive, Economic Crisis is 2nd best but the trainer is 0-19 here and the jockey 0-6 for the stable which look negatives, top spot is BOSHAM 12/1 and this one looks the most likely to set the pace and hopefully hold on, I will be backing both to show a profit but maybe not to the same stakes.

Landing Night 6/1 2nd
NR: Bosham
LINGFIELD 4.50 Aw surface
at least I know it won't be soft going here, it's a poor race but then again it is class 6, ROY'S LEGACY 10/1 is the only known front runner in the race and my 2nd top rated and with an easy lead it could be hard to catch but I have got PICANSORT 4/1 rated higher and I will go with backing them both to show a profit but once again most likely not to the same stakes.

NR: Roy's Legacy
Picansort 4/1 4th
SANDOWN 8.40
For a class 4 race its a poor turnout and even then it's not a good race, I'm not sure what Alsvinder is capable of but hasn't shown much as of yet, FRANCISCO 11/4 hasn't shown much since 2015 but then again hasn't run at this distance either and its time from 2015 would win this race but I can't be confident about the horse, my 2nd top rated is the 3year old STONEYFORD LANE 8/1 but the rating isn't very high so my stakes will be kept low and back both to show a profit.

Francisco 11/4 2nd
Stoneyford Lane 8/1 3rd

3:15 Musselburgh Racing Tips (25th July) Handicap

Horse Racing Tips
3:15 MUSSELBURGH
Bronze Beau 3rd top rated and most likely leader so place claims and dangerous with an easy lead SILVANUS 7/2 is my 2nd top and won last time out could follow up here PEARL ACCLAIM 7/1 top rated and indicated a return to form the last time out when finishing 2nd.
SUMMARY: I can't split my top 2 if they run to their best so I will be backing both to show a profit whichever one wins but my stakes will favour my top rated.

Pearl Acclaim 7/1 2nd
Silvanus 11/2 3rd
MUSSELBURGH 5.15
Bond Bombshell 2nd top rated but a few spots below the top spot but could lead here. SEE VERMONT 7/2 usually tracks the leaders and will have a target to aim at in this race.
SUMMARY: it looks a 2 horse race to me with the topweight setting the pace and the selection hunting it down and should prove too strong at the finish.

Learn about the history of Musselburgh racecourse. Direct access to their Twitter timeline.

See Vermont 6/1 1st
NOTTINGHAM 6.50
SITAR 4/1 is 2nd top rated and could still improve some more being a 3year old GLAZIER POINT 7/2 another 3year old that could improve and my top rated.

SUMMARY: There's 3 runners that have led before and they should be setting the race up for the two 3year old selections and I will go with backing them both to show a profit.

Sitar 9/2 1st
Glazier Point 7/2 2nd + £19.10 EX
CHELMSFORD 7.00
UDONTDODOU 9/2 a hold-up type and 3rd top rated CAPTIAN DION 9/1 a possible pace setter and with apprentices allowance moves to top spot KADRIZZI 16/1 original top rated and usually tracks the leaders.
SUMMARY: My top 3 all have chances and they all also have good trainer and jockeys stats at this course, if Captain Dion had been drawn well it might have been my only selection but with 3 other possible front runners and stall 12 to overcome I'm not as confident but hoping I can back all 3 to show a profit.

Udontdou 9/2 3rd
Kadrizzi 16/1 4th
Captain Dion NR
NOTTINGHAM 7.20
COSMIC CHATTER 8/1 looks the most likely front runner in this race and if getting an easy lead could be hard to catch for most of these. STORM CRY 5/1 is a 3year old who is top rated but will need to be wary of letting the front runner get its own way up front. SUMMARY if my prediction is right it should be a 2 runner race with 1 leading and the other tracking it and then trying to stay on the stronger so it could become tactical between the 2 and I will back both to cover both angles.

Cosmic Chatter 12/1 2nd
Storm Cry 6/1 6th

2:30 Ayr Racing Tips (24th July) Handicap

Horse Racing Betting
2:30 AYR
Racquet my 3rd top rated but a few spots below my top pair. SEA OF GREEN 3/1 my 2nd top rated but with the apprentices 7lb claim that would move it 1lb ahead BUNCE 12/1 is in top spot and can be held up or track the leaders.
SUMMARY: I will be going with backing both of the selections to show a profit whichever one wins but more heavily each way on Bunce as the jockey has a 4-14 strike rate for the stable so it points to connections expecting a big run in this race.

Sea Of Green 100/30 4th AYR 3.05
ROYAL BRAVE 11/2 my 3rd top rated and usually tracks the pace setters. SUWAAN 16/1 is 2nd top rated and this 3year old is possibly a pace setter DESERT ACE 14/1 is my top rated and is quite versatile with its running style.
SUMMARY: I might back all 3 in this race as Royal Brave has a good jockey booking with a 16% win ratio, Suwaan could lead and then prove hard to catch and being a 3year old it could still be able to improve while Desert Ace has a decent jockey booking with a 15% win rate and the trainer has a 13% win rate at this course, so I'm not quite sure whats going to work best on the day and hope to back the 3 to show a profit whichever does the business so will be going with 1 win bet and 2 each way wagers.

Royal Brave 11/2 3rd
Desert Ace 16/1 2nd
Suwaan 7/1 5th
BEVERLEY 6.55
Musharrif likes to track the pace setters and should have a fast pace to track here Jack Luey is well drawn in stall 2 for a possible pace setter THE NAZCA LINES 6/1 is a 3year old who did its best last year at Ripon and another possible leader.
SUMMARY: There's 5 runners in this race who have led before so it ought to be a fast early pace, Musharrif could be the one to prosper if they go off too fast and fade nearing the finish but the selection who could lead is also capable if sitting just off the pace and finishing strongly which it did last time out when winning and that was despite finding a degree of trouble getting a clear run and if getting a run here it can follow up its last win.

The Nazca Lines 6/1 8th 
WINDSOR 7.45
I've got this race down to 2 and they are the pair at the top of the handicap and both are front running types and could easily have the race between them all the way but I have a feeling only 1 will run as they are both from the same stable, so only time will tell but my money will go on either of them or both of them if they both run so MAJESTIC HERO 10/1 and UNION ROSE 10/3 look the most likely to win.

Majestic Hero 10/1 7th
Union Rose 10/1 4th

3:00 Newbury Racing Tips (22nd July) Group 3

Newbury Horse Racing
3:00 NEWBURY -
Glass Office and Perfect Pasture are my joint 3rd top rated horses and both can either be held up or track the leaders. RAUCOUS 12/1 is my 2nd top rated and needs good to firm ground to show its best the trainer has a 22% win rate with his older horses and the jockey has a 24% win rate for the stable so it looks as though they are expecting good things but it is a Group race so they should all be trying. EQTIRAAN 11/1 is my top rated and this 3year old is a versatile sort with its running style so can adapt to whats needed in this race, the trainer has a reasonable 12% win rate at this course and the jockey has a 20% win rate for this stable so the booking points to them expecting a big run in this race.

SUMMARY: I will be going with backing both selections each way, I will most likely have more on my top rated but will be backing them both to show a profit whichever one of them does the business but as to be expected for a Group race it does look a competitive affair and I won't be going in all guns blazing and that's if the going isn't on the soft side.

Raucous 12/1 4th
NR: Eqtiraan

3:15 NEWMARKET -
Cool Bahamian is 3rd top rated but may prefer a further distance. Stanhope is in 2nd top spot and this 3year old could easily make the frame HIGHLY SPRUNG 10/1 is my top rated with a few spots in hand and the trainer has an 8-32 win rate at this course and the jockey has a 19% win rate for the stable so hopefully I'm on the right one and the price will allow me to go with an each way wager.

NR: Highly Sprung 5:55 HAYDOCK -
Rose Marmara is 3rd top and usually likes to track the leaders but hasn't hit form so far this year Rose Eclair is my 2nd top rated but may find this too short if its good to firm ground HOT HANNAH 14/1 is top rated Curtesy of a time recorded at course and distance last year and hasn't hit that height so far this year but hopefully this switch back to this course will rejuvenate it and it can return to winning ways as long as the going isn't on the soft side of things and luckily the price gives me some insurance with being big enough to go with an each way bet.

NR: Hot Hannah PS: My ratings are all worked out on good or good to firm ground so an allowance isn't needed so PLEASE CHECK THE GOING BEFORE BETTING

1:50 Haydock Racing Tips (21st July) Handicap

Horse Racing Tips
1:50 Haydock -

TARBOOSH 14/1 has got the best jockey stats of my top 3 and the best draw and tracks the leaders MIDNIGHT MALIBU 14/1 likes these flatter courses and usually races prominently FOXTROT KNIGHT 10/1 should also be prominent from the off.
SUMMARY: I can't split these 3 and I will be having an each way bet on each to show a profit whichever one does the job.

Midnight Malibu 14/1 2nd
Foxtrot Knight 10/1 6th
NR: Tarboosh
NOTTINGHAM 3.40
Shamsaya is my 2nd top rated and this 3year old could still improve SEEKING MAGIC 12/1 top rated and the trainer has a 17% win ratio here and the jockey has a 15% win ratio for the stable which points to connections expecting a big run in this race and with 8 runners has to be backed each way.

Seeking Magic 12/1 1st
NEWBURY 5.25
Field Of Vision looks the most likely leader and if getting things right will be hard to catch. OEIL DE TIGRE 9/4 is the only horse with a time good enough to pick up the leader and it could pay to do the forecast with these 2 horses.

Oeil De Tigre 9/4 3rd
HAMILTON 6.50
HEE HAW 7/4 is my top rated and this 3year old is the only known front runner in the race and if getting an easy lead should prove hard to catch for the rest of the runners.

Hee Haw 7/4 5th
NEWMARKET 7.10
Willytheconqueror is joint 2nd top rated but the trainer is 1-32 at this course Lightscameraction is joint 2nd top but the trainer is 1-32 at this course MONSIEUR JOE 14/1 is top rated and usually tracks the leaders.

SUMMARY: I will be backing the top rated but I am worried about the bottom weight Yalta who has been racing in the much better company and now dropped to this level it might spark it into life so my stakes will be kept low in an each way wager.

Monsieur Joe 14/1 2nd HAMILTON 7.20
Hoof It 16/1 is my joint 2nd top rated and could at least make the frame. Red Pike 12/1 a possible pace setter is the other joint 2nd top rated CLASSIC SENIORITY 12/1 comes out the top and the trainer has an 18% win rate here but at the prices, will be backing all 3 each way to profit whichever one does the job.

Classic Seniority 16/1 1st PONTEFRACT 7.35
Gamesome is joint 2nd top rated and should be staying on strongly at the finish. Signore Piccolo is the other joint 2nd top rated and a possible pace setter here ORIENTAL RELATION 12/1 is top rated and another possible front runner, the trainer has a 28% win rate with his older horses and the jockey has a 39% win rate for the stable so things point to them expecting it to go well in this race and again the price permits me to back it each way. PS: With thunderstorms around the country please check the going before having a bet and if its soft to any degree my figures mean nothing.

Oriental Relation 12/1 6th

2:30 Hamilton Racing Tips (20th July) Handicap

Eric Winner
2:30 Hamilton - Class 6 – 5 furlongs – 10 runners
Star Cracker 99 may not want the going to be too fast but does race prominently 8/1 Kodimoor 99 also races prominently and ought to make the frame 6/1 Rat Catcher 100 is my top rated but the trainer is 0-21 at this course 25/1.
SUMMARY: I'm going with backing all 3 to make a profit, Rat Catcher may prefer a longer trip so if they don't go very fast in the early stages it may struggle to catch those in front of it, Kodimoor hasn't any negatives against its name so looks a possible winner, Star Cracker may not want it to be too fast but the jockey booking looks a positive as he's got a 17% win rate for the stable.

Kodimoor 9/2 1st
Star Cracker 6/1 6th
Rat Catcher 33/1 8th
3:05 Hamilton - Class 5 – 6 furlongs – 7 runners
Quiet Warrior 96- hasn't been in the best of form lately but may bounce back anytime soon. Buccaneers Vault 98- the trainer has a 17% win ratio here and could make the frame. Top Of The Bank 100 may be allowed to lead here as there's no other known pace setter in the race and if doing so could quite easily lead all the way and 8/1 looks decent value.

Top Of The Bank 10/1 5th

4:00 Chepstow - Class 4 – 6 furlongs – 9 runners
This race is hard to come to a conclusion about, Bahamian Dollar 7/1 and Vincentti 14/1 are my joint top rated with Farleigh Mac just 1lb below them, both Bahamian Dollar and Farleigh Mac 5/2 have been known to front run I'm looking to back all 3 to make a profit whichever one wins.

Bahamian Dollar 7/1 1st
Farleigh Mac 5/2 2nd
Vincentti 25/1 9th
4:30 Chepstow - Class 6 – 5 furlongs – 16 runners
This race is a poor affair but I'm going with Lucky Clover 9/4 who is the top weight here and against slower horses, it has to have a chance to follow up its win last time out and from stall 10 it should be able to cover any moves on either side of the course.

Lucky Clover 9/4 2nd
5:30 Leicester - Class 6 (apprentices) – 6 furlongs – 9 runners
Monarch Maid 98 a versatile type tactics wise but may find this too far if its a fast early pace. Jazz Legend 99 may also find this trip too far with a fast pace at this course Generalyse 100 is the one thats most likely to lead here and if setting a fast early pace it may prevent anything from stating on to catch it and all of its 3 wins on turf have come at thic course and the jockey is 1-3 for the stable so it looks like they are expecting a big run in this race and 9/1 is a decent price.

Generalyse 14/1 7th
5:40 Doncaster - Class 5 (apprentices) – 5 furlongs – 10 runners
ive got 3 horses tightly handicapped at the top of my ratings, Roys Legacy a possible front runner, but theres 4 others that also might want to lead, and has got stall 10 to help its cause but the jockey is 0-4 for the stable, Miss Rosina may not want the going to be too fast but the trainer is 0-11 at this course which puts me off, im going with Kiringa 12/1 who can deploy any tactics to suit the race and the trainer has a 13% win ratio but this will be the jockeys 3rd ride for the stable and the other 2 have both resulted in wins so it looks a positive booking.

Kiringa 12/1 6th

3:50 Catterick Racing Tips (19th July) Handicap

Eric - Mr Winner
3:50 Catterick - Class 4 – 6 furlongs – 8 runners
STRAIGHTOTHEPOINT 100—(5/1) usually tracks the pace setters Love Oasis 99 can be held up or race prominently Meshardal 98 usually tracks the leaders best time recorded here.
SUMMARY: My stakes will be kept low because there are no known front runners in the race and I will be looking to back all 3 to show a profit whichever one wins.

Straightothepoint 5/1 3rd LINGFIELD 5.05 AW Class 6 – 5 furlongs – 10 runners
Powerful Wind 3rd top rated and possible pace setter and could make the frame Pharoh Jake 2nd top rated and ought to be staying on at the finish. ASK THE GURU 8/1 top rated and the only other known front runner.
SUMMARY: I think this race will be won from the front and I'm siding with the selection leading from start to finish.

Ask The Guru 8/1 1st CATTERICK 2.40 Seller – 6 furlongs – 9 runners
as to be expected this looks a poor race but I'm going to put forward MANATEE BAY (even money) as my selection and only because it got a few spots in hand on the next best but stakes will be kept low.

Manatee Bay 13/8 3rd YARMOUTH 5.45 Class 4 – 6 furlongs – 7 runners
this lady jockeys race is fraught with dangers and my stakes will be kept low again, I've got SYRIAN PEARL 8/1 as my 2nd top rated but this one looks the most likely pace setter and good be dangerous with an easy lead but top rated is CASE KEY 3/1 who usually races behind the leaders and then stays on strongly at the finish, I'm going with both of them to cover both angles.

Case Key 13/2 2nd
Syrian Pearl 8/1 6th

Top UK racing events still to come

We have left behind some exciting racing encounters, such as the Cheltehnham Festival (which ended well for Robbie Power on Sizing John), Aintree’s Grandox Health Grand National Festival (still strong since 1839), the All-Weather Championships (with Convey finishing first at its most valuable race, the £200,000 Betway Easter Classic) Dante Festival in York or the summer favorite Moet and Chandon July Festival. But the year is not over and there are many exciting rendezvous yet to come.

Six months before the end of 2017, many of the major racing events haven’t taken place yet, with King George Weekend, Qatar Goodwood or the Welcome to Yorkshire still to come. So if you’re in the spirit of winning on the bets you place this summer, in addition to visiting the best internet poker sites and rooms to see how you do on the felt, keep an eye for upcoming tennis tournaments, check out upcoming soccer games or golf tournaments, and follow the best tips for major racing events taking place in the UK during July and August.

From Friday 28th July to Saturday 29th July, King George VI Weekend is one of the highlights in Ascot this year. It's Saturday race is, in fact, the feature of the middle distance championship of the European mid-season. Open to horses aged three or older it is the UK’s most prestigious open-age flat race. Sponsored by Qatar Investment & Projects Development Holding Company it has a long history and its winner last year was Highland Reel, ridden by jockey Ryan Moore.

Another must on the list of racing bets at the Qatar Goodwood Festival celebrated from 1st-5th of August in Sussex. Known as the Glorious Goodwood, it is one of the world’s largest race meetings and part of the highlights of the flat-racing season. With a racecourse thought to be the most beautiful in the UK, this event hosts some notable races to keep an eye on as the stakes are usually high. Later on in August, the next on the list is Welcome to Yorkshire Ebor festival, which is one of the largest betting races of the season with a prize money of £210,000. In 2016 Heartbreak City came in first, with jockey A McNamara.

As far as September goes, the central event is 32 Red Sprint Cup Festival at Haydock Park, which is one of Europe’s most valuable sprints and it will take place from September 7-9. The St. Leger Festival, the world’s oldest classic run over 1m 6f and 132 yards, follows the Red Sprint and from September 13-16, it marks the end of British classics this year.

The winter jumps season takes off with The Open at Cheltenham with £110,000 winnings and is followed by Gold Cup Festival and the Tingle Creek Christmas Festival, with the Coral Welsh Grand National at Chepstow being the last race this year on December 27. So, with 15 races and festivals still to come, there are many bets to be placed – make sure you follow my updates on odds, tips and analysis- with series of upcoming events that promise to bring great satisfaction to those passionate about horse races.

3:15 Beverley Racing Tips (18th July) Handicap

Beverley Horse Racing
3:15 Beverley Class 6 – 5 furlongs – 15 runners
This is a poor race and my stakes will be kept low, John Quinn has 2 runners and Jason Hart booked to ride them both and he has a 15% win rate when riding for the stable and both of them are my joint 4th top rated and whichever he rides could at least make the frame. Sarabi is my 3rd top rated and Roaring Rory my 5th top rated (who moves to clear 4th with the jockeys 7lb claim) are the 2 known front runners in the race so either could be dangerous if getting an easy lead, Tinsill is my 2nd top rated but the trainer is 0-41 with his older horses at this course and the jockey has only a 3% win rate for the stable which doesn't inspire me with confidence, my top rated is MAGGI MAY 9/1 but the trainer is 0-7 with any horses barring his 2yo's and the jockey is 0-7 for the stable but I'm hoping this may break their ducks here as form stall 3 it ought to be able to get a prominent position behind the 2 front runners from which to launch its attack in the latter stages of the race.

Maggi May 9/1 4th

4:00 Bath Class 5 – 5 furlongs – 5 runners
Babyfact usually tracks the pace setters but a bit to find to win this Go Amber Go a front running sort who with a 5lb claiming apprentice on board moves into 2nd spot SECRET AGENT 3/1 the other front runner and only a 3year old so could lead all the way here Emjayem another that races prominently but only joint 3rd top rated Archimedes my original 2nd top rated and it also races prominently.
SUMMARY: The 3year old selection could lead all the way here and a reproduction of its time which it recorded at Salisbury this year would be enough to win this race comfortably.

Secret Agent 3/1 2nd

3:00 Ayr Racing Tips (17th July) Handicap

Eric Winner Racing Tips 3:00 Ayr - Class 5 – 6 furlongs – 11 runners
DUNCAN OF SCOTLAND 7/2 is one of only 2 known front runners in the race and may be hard to catch for most of these as its 2nd top on my figures. SEA OF GREEN 8/1 is top rated and is usually a hold-up type.
SUMMARY: I've gone with backing both of my top 2 ratings as 1 of them could lead and be dangerous if getting its own way in front but the 2nd selection has got the speed to finish strongly and pick up the leaders so I'm covering both angles to show a profit whichever one does the business in the race.

Sea Of Green 8/1 1st
Duncan of Scotland 7/2 2nd

Exacta: £21.30
FFOS LAS 3.15 Class 4 – 5 furlongs – 9 runners
Major Valentine my 2nd top rated is a front running sort and has been in form lately and if getting to the front it could be hard to catch. PENNY DREADFUL 7/2 comes out in the top spot and can also set the pace and looks to need good to firm ground to show its best.
SUMMARY: I'm hoping the front runners don't kill themselves trying to lead but the trainer does use this apprentice before and he has won 23% of the time on the stables older horses and that 7lb claim could swing things its way.

Penny Dreadful 4/1 4th WINDSOR 7.20 Class 3 – 5 furlongs – 8 runners
SUPER JULIUS 9/2 maybe my 3rd top rated but this 3year old has won its last 2 races nicely and looks an improving sort so can't be discarded as a potential winner. STEPPER POINT 9/1 is my joint top rated from a time recorded at this course and distance this year and prefers good to firm going. DARK SHOT 6/4 starts off as 2nd top rated but the 5lb claiming apprentice moves it to joint top rated position and looks as though further might suit it even more.
SUMMARY: 5 of the 8 runners have been known to lead before and that includes all 3 of my selections and this race could turn out to be a very fast and great race to watch and I'm hoping to be able to back all 3 to show a profit.

Super Julius 5/1 5th
Dark Shot 6/4 4th
Stepper Point 9/1 7th
