4:40 Windsor Racing Tips (29th May) amous Monday Night Racing Handicap (Class 4) (4yo+)

horse racing
MONTEVERDI may need this run for fitness, also looks as though a longer trip might help and some cut in the ground so not for me here despite being the topweight.
COOL BAHAMIAN has also looked like a longer trip would suit but it does stay on strongly at this distance and is my joint 4th top rated.
SIR BILLY WRIGHT has only produced slow times over this course and distance and it is a much better horse over a shorter trip.
KING OF SPIN can be either held up or track the leaders but its best time doesn't put it in my top 6 so may struggle here.
COMPAS SCOOBIE recorded its best time at Yarmouth this year but it was only fast enough to make it my joint 4th best.
FIELD OF VISION looks the most likely of these to set the early pace but may not be ideally drawn in stall 2, its final times don't put it in my top 6 so not sure what its capable of it getting an easy lead.
RIO RONALDO is a horse that likes good to firm ground and its best time was recorded over this course and distance its also my 2nd top rated so could easily at least make the frame.
BAHAMIAN DOLLAR has only produced slow times on good and good to firm ground but it has done a decent time at Newcastle on the all-weather
MAJOR PUSEY has only done slow times at this distance as it usually proves too far for it but comes be dangerous if there's, not a decent early pace.
WILEY POST is usually held up for a late run and it is my 3rd top rated but it does find this trip stretches its stamina if there's a fast early pace.
SUMOU is my 6th top rated and usually, tracks the leaders but I'm not really sure what is exactly its best distance.
DANECASE ran on Friday and did a very fast time in an apprentices race and if that time wasn't a fluke then must have every chance of following up here.
SUMMARY: I'm hoping there's a decent early pace to eliminate those that struggle with stamina over 6 furlongs which includes my 3rd top rated, if it's really fast going then Rio Ronaldo has every chance of going close if not winning but it all hinges on the time that DANECASE 11/2 recorded at Goodwood, it seemed very fast for its class and could be a fluke time, the race was an apprentices race so it's not penalised here and on that showing looks a lot better than its official rating of 74 and if my figures are right ought to win easily, but I will be having at least a saving bet on Rio Ronaldo 7/1 if the going is fast.
2:30 CHELMSFORD -
This is a poor class 6 claiming race with 8 runners and no known front runner so that always makes it hard to get a picture of how the race might unfold but I have only got 2 with times fast enough over this course and distance to register on my list and both from the same stable so maybe David O'Meara is trying to win this race, if I go by my speed figures PEARL ACCLAIM 3/1 should win quite easily but the apprentice jockey has only got a 6% win ratio whilst the jockey riding Major Crispies 11/2 has got a 14% win rate, so I'm not sure which one will be the trier but I'm going with my figures and backing Pearl Acclaim but I might also have a saving bet on his other horse just in case the selections a non-trier but either way my stakes will be kept on the low side.

4:35 Haydock Racing Tips (27th May) EBF Stallions Cecil Frail Stakes

Racing Tips
A nice Listed race with 14 runners and 3 that are likely to set the pace if allowed, the four 3year olds could be able to improve so can't be discarded easily but 5th spot is the highest rating of them and Rosy Briar could easily improve, topweight Bounce is 4th top rated and usually tracks the leaders, 3rd spot is Mayfair Lady another possible pacesetter, Buying Trouble is my 2nd top rated and looks as though a longer trip might help so should be staying on at the finish in top spot is GRAVITY FLOW 4/1 who is another possible front runner and if getting to the front it could prove hard to catch, this will be its 1st run of the year but did win 1st time out last year so it's not a definite negative.

Gravity Flow 4/1 8th
4:55 GOODWOOD
Of the 10 runners there's 2 that have been known to lead and Picture Dealer is one of them and is drawn the best in stall 1 so could prove hard to catch but there's not enough statistics to say if there's any positives or negatives which also applies to Gold Club but they are 2 in the reckoning for this race but the selection has to be JOE PACKET 10/1 just because the trainer has a 26% win rate here and the apprentice jockey has ridden a winner for the stable from just a few rides so it looks a positive booking and it's a big enough price to back each way.

Joe Packet 25/1 1st
6:15 SALISBURY
With 14 runners I would expect more than one that likes to lead but that's a good starting point, Indian Affair but it is drawn on the wrong side in stall 14 but it could be OK if nothing else tried to steal its thunder by also trying to lead but being my 4th top rated it could have at least place claims and it comes from the Milton Bradley stable as does Divine Call who is my top rated but the trainer has a 0-19 record at this track and this one doesn't want the going to be on the firm side of things which seems most likely, Chetan is my 2nd top rated and its the 1st runner for this trainer at this course and it's also the debut of the jockey for the stable, if the going is good to firm the most likely one to prosper is TITUS SECRET 9/2 who usually tracks the leaders and being in stall 5 it should be able to go wherever deems necessary, the trainer has a good 22% win ratio here and it's the jockeys debut but he is more than capable but my stakes in this race will be kept low.

Titus Secret 9/2 3rd

1:40 Bath Racing Tips (26th May) TMGroup Who Cares Wins Handicap (Class 5) (4yo+)

racing tips
I'm not always a fan of this distance as its over 5 and a half but quite a bit short of 6 furlongs, so I'm not always sure if it needs a strong 5 furlong horse or a weak 6 furlong horse to win over the trip but today looks an exception and hopefully I've found a golden nugget, there's 3 horses that have led before and it looks a race that will be won from the front, Silverrica isn't in my top 5 so maybe it won't be quite fast enough to lead in this field, Powerful Dream is my 3rd top rated and could be the one that would prosper but I doubt that will happen but it could still make the frame, Anonymous John starts off as my top rated but the trainer is 0-11 here with his older horses and the jockey is 0-2 but it is drawn in stall 9 and it versatile with its running style and that includes leading but it always looks as though it wants more than 6 furlongs so they might go too fast for this one to lead as well which leaves me with GO AMBER GO 5/2 who did its best time this year over 6 furlongs so it shouldn't be fading near the finish its being ridden by a 5lb claiming apprentice which moves it to top spot , the trainer has a 23% win rate here and the jockey 22% win ratio for this stable, so it looks like they are expecting a big run here and it could lead all the way.

Go Amber Go 5/2 6th
GOODWOOD 4.55
This is a nice looking class 2 race with 14 runners and 4 that have led before and this could also be won from the front, Upstaging is joint 4th best and a possible pace setter but only usually in sufference so maybe not in this race, ive got joint 2nd top rated horses in Boy In The Bar who can also front run and could make the frame but the jockey has only rode twice for the stable so im not sure if its a positive or negative deployment, KADRIZZI 20/1 is the other joint 2nd top and also a front runner, stall 3 looks ideal in the make-up of the race and the jockey booking looks a big positive with a 21% win rate for the stable, SEEKING MAGIC 18/1 is top rated and is being ridden by a 7lb claimer and im not sure if its positive as hes only ridden twice for them so I will go with backing them both each way to cover the angles.

Kadrizzi 20/1 6th
Seeking Magic 20/1 Unp
PONTEFRACT 8.00
Of the 12 runners theres 5 that have been known to lead before and its a competative race, I think Astrophysics has perhaps deserved the move up in class but I think it will struggle to cope to win the race but could possibly make the frame and may need this run for fitness, Musharrif is my 3rd top rated and usually tracks the leaders, ive then got Silvanus in 2nd top spot from a time it recorded this year at Catterick and another that prefers to track the leadersmy top rated is ORIENTAL RELATION 10/1 who is a possible front running pace setter and if getting to the front it could prove hard to catch and its best speed figure was recorded over this course and distance this year and the trainer has a 31% win rate here and the jockey has a 17% in rate for the stable which hopefully points to connections expecting a big run and the price allows for an each way investment.

Oriental Relation 10/1 9th

3:30 Catterick Racing Tips (25th May) RDA Richmond And Catterick Group Handicap (Class 5) (4yo+)

racing tips
Tricky Dicky looks the most likely leader but only sets slowish paces so could be pushed to go faster by Bold Spirit and also by my 2nd top rated horse MESHARDAL who's trainer has a 16% win rate at this course and the jockey wins 11% of the time, Windforpower is my 3rd top rated animal here and the trainer only has a 6% win rate but the jockey rides 15% of winners for the stable but top of the heap is MAJOR CRISPIES 10/1 who can be held up or track the leaders and it's being ridden by a 7lb claiming apprentice who is making their debut for the stable here but if worth the 7lb claim it would take this horse I good bit further ahead on ratings so must have a chance at the weights to get back to winning ways and at the price a bit of insurance with an each-way wager.

Meshardal 3/1 1st
Major Crispies 10/1 Unp
GOODWOOD 5.25
This is a 10 runner apprentice jockeys race with just 2 that have been known to lead, the topweight Easy Code is one of them but may not want the going to be on the firm side and the trainer has a 29% win rated but the jockey has a 0-10 record for the stable but as always I will stick with the proven, MONARCH MAID 10/1 is my 3rd top rated and another possible pacesetter and the jockey has a 3-15 win ratio which points to them expecting a good run here, then in 2nd spot just 1lb higher is VIRILE 12/1 who's trainer has a 22% win rate and so does the jockey for this stable, so that looks like 2 likely candidates but again just 1lb ahead in top spot is CAPTAIN RYAN 4/1 who is a hold up type with only 2lb's separating my top 3 I will go with backing them all to show a profit whichever one wins.

Captain Ryan 7/1 3rd
Monarch Maid 10/1 9th
Virile 12/1 5th
CATTERICK 5.45
Another apprentices race but 11 runners and 3 that have led before, Thornaby Princess is my 3rd top rated but the trainer is 0-10 at the course which doesn't bode well, in my 2nd place is CHANDRESH 8/1 who usually races prominently and stall 3 is ok the trainer is 1-5nat this course and the jockey 1-1 for the stable but my top spot is occupied by LOUMARIN 7/1 who has got stall 1 and is one of the possible leaders the jockey is 1-7 for this stable but the trainer has a 19% win ratio and if leading it could prove very hard to catch.

Chandresh 8/1 6th
Loumarin 7/1 3rd
CHELMSFORD 5.50
Just 8 runners and 2 that have been known to lead before, that includes Kiringa my 4th top rated and Frank The barber my 3rd top rated, there's also a possible hidden danger in the shape of Hot Stuff, my 2nd top rated is Mighty Zip who usually races prominently but my top rated is the hold up horse DOCTOR PARKES 4/1 who from stall 2 could get a position on the rails and then be able to attack the pacesetters when they get into the straight, the apprentice jockey has ridden 4 winners for this stable and the stable has an 18% win rate here so it looks as though they are expecting a big run from the horse in this race.

Doctor Parkes 4/1 2nd

2:50 Ayr Racing Tips (24th May) Whyte & Mackay Handicap (Div I) (Class 6) (3yo+)

This class 6 race looks dire and there's only one horse with a time fast enough to register on my figures and thats the topweight DUNCAN OF SCOTLAND 6/4 who recorded a fast time for its class over this course and distance two runs ago and also won last time out so is got for the hattrick here and there are a few possibly hidden dangers, mainly because the 3 year olds could have some improvement to come but im hoping the selection can either lead all the way or at least be near the front and prove best at the finish but stakes will be kept low but more likely just to put it into a multi-bet at those odds as its a fair bit shorter than I thought would be value.

Duncan Of Scotland 6/4 7th
AYR 3.20
This 2nd division of the race looks the stronger race but I've not got any known front-runners in the race, Secret City is my 3rd top rated from a time recorded at this course and distance this year, I've got BAHAMIAN SUNRISE 9/1 as my 2nd top rated but it's being ridden by a 3lb claiming apprentice which moves it into top spot and this is the same trainer-jockey combination as Duncan Of Scotland in the 1st division, my original top rated is SEA OF GREEN 5/1 and this one also did its best time over course and distance this year and the jockey has had 3 rides with one win for the stable, I cant split the pair of them so will go with backing both to show a profit whichever one does the business but stakes will be kept small as there could still be some hidden dangers in the race.

Bahamian Sunrise 9/1 8th
Sea Of Green 5/1 3rd

AYR 3.50
Just 8 runners but 3 of them have led before, Straightothepoint my 4th top rated and Tylery Wonder my joint 2nd top rated are both possible pace setters, Rural Celebration is the other joint 2nd top rated and the jockey has a 15% win rate for the stable which is a good pointer but my top rated is ROYAL BRAVE 6/1 who has won its last 2 races and goes for the hat-trick here and has every chance of doing so but this is a step up in class but has earnt the right to take its chance but I won't be going mad with my stakes.

Royal Brave 6/1 1st

LINGFIELD 4.10
There's 12 runners and 4 that have been known to lead before, the topweight Taajub is my 4th top rated with the bottom weight as my 3rd top rated and Give us A Belle has been known to lead and is well housed in stall 10, I've got Classic Flyer in my 2nd spot but the trainer has a 0-18 record at this track, which brings me to my top rated POWERFUL WIND 11/1 who is also a possible pace setter and from stall 8 it should have every chance to either lead or get into a good early position from which to stay on the stronger and is a price good enough to go with an each-way wager.

Powerful Wind 11/1 5th
KEMPTON 9.10
A typical class 6 race and just the one known front runner in a field of 11 runners, ive got big negatives against 6 runners which could be lays if theres any value, theres a couple of possibly dark horses in Arctic Angel and Arize bt Compton Prince is my 3rd top rated and usually tracks the leaders, my 2nd top rated is Noble Deed who also likes to race prominently but my top rated is GENERALYSE 10/1 and its also the only known pace setter and stall 3 could be ideal for it, so im hoping it can get away fast and control the race from the front and on the rails and then replel any challengers and at the price a bit of insurance with an each way investment.

Generalyse 16/1 4th

4:40 Newcastle Racing Tips (23rd May) Digital Skills Summit Handicap (Class 5) (4yo+)

racing tips
Theres 14 runners but only Tick The Boxes who is housed in stall 3 known as a front-running type and it's my 3rd top rated so quite a few might struggle to get involved, Caeser The Gaeser is my 2nd top rated and this one is usually held up but usually needs a run for fitness so maybe it won't be primed to win here but could make the frame, in top place is EPEIUS 10/1 who normally races prominently and then stays on strongly at the finish and has a chance here to get back to winning ways and at the price I will be going with an each-way investment.

Epeius 10/1 9th

NEWCASTLE 5.40


I hope all 8 run in this race and there's 2 known pace setters and 5 of them are 3-year-olds which mean any stakes will be kept low, Kinloch Pride is my 2nd top rated but the bottom weight Little Kingdom is my 3rd top rated and this 3-year-old could have improvement to come so could be dangerous but I've got HORSFORTH 13/2 as my top rated from a time recorded this year and it's been in the 1st 4 in all 3 runs this year and has a chance here to get back to winning races.

There is a sprint at Brighton where the going is given as good to soft and a race at Nottingham where it's given as soft and I won't be putting forward any selections to win the races but there could be some lays posted on my sister page www.winningracingtips.com so if your interested please go take a look, its free so you've got nothing to lose and it might help stop you backing a loser or two.

2:50 Carlisle Racing Tip (22nd May) Handicap (A Jockey Club Grassroots Sprint Series Qualifier)

horse racing tips - sprinters
OK folks I tried the last few days to try and analyse a race when the going was soft but I just can't rate how good or bad a piece of form is as I've got nothing to rate it against I have found plenty of horses that can't win a race so some lays will be posted on my sister page when the goings soft, so the experiment is at an end and I will go back to mainly betting when the going is good or firmer, there may be the odd exception, so let's hope for a dry summer.
So please CHECK THE GOING BEFORE BETTING.
CARLISLE 2.50
Only 8 runners but only 2 that have been known as front running types but both usually only do so if nothing else wants to lead, I'm not quite sure how good Merdon Castle is but hasn't shown enough as of yet to make me think it can win this race whilst Market Choice is my 3rd top rated so could be the one to catch, Mr Orange is my 2nd top and is usually held up for a late challenge but YEEOOW 6/1 is my top rated and this isn't the 1st time its come out top of my figures and usually just as I'm thinking it can't reproduce its best again it pops up to prove me wrong so I will be going with having a bet but keeping the stakes fairly low.

Yeeoow 6/1 5th
REDCAR 3.40
There's 11 runners and 5 that have been known to lead before, Lexington Place is a possible front runner and my 4th top rated and has got stall 3, I've got joint 2nd top rated and Lydia's Place who is one of them is also a possible pacesetter and has got the prime draw in stall 1 so could get control of the rails and then prove hard to catch for most of these, Midnight Malibu who finished 2nd last time out is the other joint 2nd top rated and usually races prominently just behind the leaders and is from the in-form Tim Easterby stable and my top rated is EXCESSABLE 7/2 also from the Tim Easterby stable and also races prominently and this one won last time out and has a chance here to follow up that win.

Excessable 9/2 1st
WINDSOR 7.25
This looks a nice listed class race and I'm hoping the going is good and then I will be quietly confident about the selection, Intisaab is 4th top just 1lb below Mr Lupton in 3rd spot and could have to battle between themselves to make the frame, I've got Raucous in 2nd spot and this one needs good to firm ground to show its best but my top rated is DANCING STAR 9/2 who maybe isn't as effective on good to firm but if it's genuinely good ground then as this is the only known front-runner in the race it could lead all the way and the jockey booking looks a positive as he's got a 21% win rate for this stable which is in good form of late. The going has the word soft in its description and if so then I won't be betting but luckily I can watch an earlier race to check for myself before placing a bet.

Dancing Star 9/2 2nd

5:10 Ripon Racing Tips (21st May) Middleham Trainers Association Apprentice Handicap (Class 5) (4yo+)

Racing tips
SIR DOMINO may find this 5-furlong trip too short and isn't in my top 4 if the going is good or better but could make the frame if there's cut in the ground.

MININGGOLD seems to be a horse that does its best when the ground is genuinely good, so will be lucky to be able to show its best here.
ENTERTAINING BEN is a possible pacesetter if the going is good or better but maybe not be involved if it rides on the soft side of things.
ROY'S LEGACY another possible front runner whatever the going is like, my top rated if it's on the fast side and can handle some cut.
MITCHUM has won on soft ground and is 3rd on my figures on good ground so could make the frame whatever the ground is like.
SARABI has won on soft ground but may not like it if its good to firm, so could make the frame if the going is softish but may struggle if good fast ground.
MIGHTY ZIP may find this trip too short if it's good or better but maybe not like it if the going is on the soft side.
PEARL NOIR is well weighted and 2nd best on my figures and is versatile with how it runs tactically but may not like the ground to be soft.
SUMMARY: I hope all 8 horses take part so there's 3 places if I find an each way bet, the going will crutial for some of the runners in this race and if its on the soft side both Sarabi and Mitchum could make the frame but if it rides good or better then Pearl Noir could make the frame along with Mitchum, so Mitchum could be an each way bet if a big enough price but the horse I fancy whatever the going is ROY'S LEGACY 4/1 who is a front running sort and has a few spots in hand if the going is good or firmer and has won on soft going as well so looks the most likely winner.

Roy's Legacy 6/1 4th

2:10 Thirsk Racing Tips (20th May) Jackie's 50th Celebration Handicap (Class 4) (4yo+)

Racing tips
I'm trying with analysing with it being soft and of the 13 runners I've narrowed it down to 3 and all of them are front running sorts, LEXIS HERO 25/1 has been drawn in stall 1, MAJOR PUSEY 14/1 is in stall 10 and HENLEY 11/2 from stall 11, so I'll go with a small win bet and 2 small each way bets.

Lexi's Hero 40/1 Unp

Major Pusey 14/1 7th

Henley 11/3 3rd
3:20 THIRSK
Only 7 runners and I've still only narrowed it down to 2 selections with EDWARD LEWIS 13/8 who can be held up or track the pace and the other selection is ORIENT CLASS 9/2 and can also be held up or track the leaders and both of them can act on any going.

Edward Lewis 13/8 4th

Orient Class 9/2 4th
3:55 THIRSK
With 20 runners this is going to take some solving and I've narrowed it down to 3 but stakes will be kept low, ROLL ON RORY 14/1 who usually tracks the leaders and drawn high, INTENSE STYLE 16/1 is another that likes to race prominently from stall 2 and my 3rd selection is SEE THE SUN 28/1 who is one of 3 that have been known as front running sorts and this is drawn low in stall 5, so I will go with 3 small each way bets.

Roll On Rory 20/1 Unp

Intense Style 16/1 Unp

See The Sun 28/1 Unp
8:50 DONCASTER
I'm not used to looking for winners when the going is soft and I can't find much to write so each race will be just a brief summary. I've only found 2 known front-runners in this race and I think HE'S MY CRACKER 20/1 could be dangerous if getting an uncontested lead and it does at least handle the going, MONEY TEAM 14/1 is another worth considering on the going and the pair of them are drawn in stalls 5 and 4 respectively, the 3rd horse I'm adding to my list of possible winners is DANDYLEEKIE 8/1 in stall 14 and this one seems to need cut to show its best, so I'll go with dutching the 3 mentioned to show a profit whichever one does the business.

Dandyleekie 8/1 3rd

He's A Character 20/1 8th

Money Team 13/1 9th

5:30 Newmarket Racing Tips (19th May) "Hands And Heels" Apprentice Series Apprentice Handicap (Class 5) (4yo+)

Racing tips
Only 8 runners and it looks likely the going will be good to soft with all the rain that we've had on Wednesday, so I'm analysing but not using my speed figures as they are pointless on the going. When doing the analysis I find more confident lays than bets and you can see the lays at www.winningracingtips.com but in this race I've got a selection in the shape of ANCIENT ASTRONAUTE 13/8 it can be held up or track the leaders and definitely acts on good to soft ground but is unproven on soft ground so a watching brief of the going will be needed but if the conditions are right I will be having a wager on the selection but I wasn't expecting it to be quite this short of price but it will do nicely in a multi bet with something else.

Ancient Astronaute 13/8 2nd

8:40 HAMILTON -


This race of 12 runners has 4 that could set the pace so could play into the hands of my selection AVENUE OF STARS 16/1 who likes to race prominently by tracking the leaders and then stay on strongly at the finish in the capable hands of the jockey Graham Lee and hopefully it can find itself back into the winner's enclosure, but once again my stakes will be kept to the low side of things and the price permits me to go with an each-way wager.
