3:00 Newbury Racing Tips (21st July)

NEWBURY 3.00 (8.5)
This is cracking Group 3 race with 10 runners, if the going is g/f, so hopefully they don't water it too much or there's any rain, I can split the race in 2 halves of possible lays and possible backs, the 5 to look at in my speed figures order from 5th to 1st are Never Back Down, Hey Jonesy, Equilatreal, Projection and Mythmaker. The 1st 3 of them are 3 year olds who could improve further so I'm not completely sure how to proceed because if i had to narrow it down to 1 or 2 horses it would be Projection 7/2 and Equilatreal 10/3 the 1st 2 in the betting, so maybe Hey Jonesy 10/1 is the each way value bet in the race.
NEWMARKET 3.25 (8.0)
Only 8 runners with 3 I can discount, my 3rd top rated is Mr Wagyu, 1 of 3 aged 3 running here and could be the one to set the pace from stall 8 and then not many should get involved, Englishman is my 2nd top rated but this one doesn't want the going to be too fast for it to show its absolute best but my top rated is the 3 year old ZAIN HANA 7/2 who should get a good tow into the race from stall 7 and then stay on the stronger at the finish and this trainer has a 22% strike rate at this course.
HAYDOCK 8.30 (7.4)
Quite a nice race for class 5, 11 with 5 that have been known to lead and my top 3 are all front running types,Lambrini Legacy is 3rd top in stall 5, I'm not sure if the draw will make a difference but if anything it does seem to favour those drawn high, CAMPION 12/1 is 2nd best and this 3 year old is drawn in stall 10 so could gain control against the rails, it has to be a selection because of the draw and at the price an each way bet looks best, my top rated BROADHAVEN HONEY 9/2 is drawn in stall 2 which might not be ideal, so 2 bets to cover both sides of the draw.

3:45 Haydock Racing Tips (20th July)

Haydock Racing Tips
HAYDOCK 3.45 (8.4)
I like this type of race where i can throw out a good few of the runners, in this race discard 4 and there would be a 5th if it wasn't a 3 year old, I've only got 1lb difference between the 3 horses at the top of the handicap, 3rd and joint 2nd top rated on my figures, my selection CANFORD BAY 11/1 seems to like to run with a low weight against better horses and a repeat of its time when 2nd at Thirsk 2 runs ago would see it winning here and the price permits an each way wager.

Canford Bay 14/1 2nd
HAMILTON 6.50 (7.4)
Only 7 runners and only 3 with recorded times but a lack of early pace could be a problem, Mont Kiara is 3rd best but being a hold up type this race might not be run to suit it, Mujassam usually tracks the leader and comes out 2nd best leaving KING ROBERT 5/1 as my selection but this one wouldn't want the going to be too fast.

King Robert 5/1 4th
HAMILTON 7.20 (7.4)
This looks a cracking class 2 race with 13 runners but only 1 known pacesetter but I doubt its capable of leading all the way here, Dark Defender is 4th best but doesn't want to hear its hooves rattling, Golden Steps is 3rd best and a hold up type which might not suit it here, Classic Seniority is 2nd top and another that doesn't like really fast ground, top of my list is THE GREAT WALL 9/2 who is only a 4 year old and sprung into form last time out here and a repeat time would see it win this race but that was only a class 4 race so I'm hoping it can cope with stepping up 2 levels.

The Great Wall
NEWMARKET 7.45 (8.0)
This 4 runner race could turn into a tactical affair but I think the one that's most likely to lead here is MIRZA 13/8 and if allowed to set its own pace could lead from start to finish but any stakes will be kept below the top amount.

NEWMARKET 8.15 (8.0)
A small field of 6 but with 2 front runners it should be a true run affair especially as the other 4 all like to track the leaders, Poets Vanity is my 2nd best rating but has to give a lot of weight to my selection which is DIZZY G 2/1 who is going for the 4 timer here and has merited this move up in class and being a 3 year old it could still have more to come as it matures.
PONTEFRACT 9.10 (8.4)
There's 7 runners and 3 or them could try to set the pace, Ninjago is my 3rd top rated but a hold up type so this race should suit it, COSMIC CHATTER 7/1 is only 1lb below top spot and being a front runner could easily turn that around but i do have FULL INTENTION 10/1 who likes to track the leaders in top spot so i will go with backing them both to cover both angles.

2:30 Hamilton Racing Tips (19th July)

Horse racing tips
HAMILTON 2.30 (7.4)
Mount Hellvelyn is housed in stall 1 and a possible pacesetter here and is my 3rd top rated, I've got joint top rated horses with Our Place In Loule and LIFE FOR RENT 7/2, the former trainer has a poor 1-23 win rate here but the best time was recorded this year over this c/d, the 3 year old top weight did its best time at Haydock this year and is another that likes to lead or contest for the lead and if getting to the front could prove hard to catch.

Life For Rent 7/2 3rd
HAMILTON 3.00 (7.4)
Another race where i think it will be won from the front, Straighttothepoint is my 2nd top rated and a front running sort and coming from stall 7 and 2 stalls away in 9 is GULLANE ONE 10/3 a 3 year old that also likes to lead, so as long as they don't cut each others throats by going too fast they should have the race between them and the selection then prove the stronger.

Gullane One 10/3 1st
CHEPSTOW 4.10 (7.3)
I've got Jaganory as my 3rd top rated and it likes to track the leaders but looks poor value as the favourite, Kyllukey comes out 2nd best using a time from Nottingham last year but top rated is CAPTAIN RYAN 9/2 and this one can be held up for a late run while if the early pace isn't very strong it can track the leaders and then stay on strongly at the finish.

Captain Ryan 9/2 9th
Doncaster 5.45 (8.7)
With a couple of possible pacesetters it should be a true run affair but they will be setting it up for a finishing type, Mininggold sits in 4th spot with You're Cool 2lbs higher in 3rd spot, Desert Sport is my 2nd best rated and usually likes to track the pacemakers but my top rated is MUATADEL 4/1 who probably doesn't want it too fast but the trainer does have a good strike rate at this course and does OK in apprentice races.

Muatadel 4/1 2nd

3:10 Lingfield Racing Tips (18th July)

Horse Racing
LINGFIELD 3.10 (8.5)
Not too bad for a class 6 race and my top 2 are both front running types and the only 2 known front runners in the race, Llamrei or Hurricane Alert could be the ones to prosper if they go off too fast, 2nd top rated is Ask The Guru who has got the prime draw in stall 1 so it could gain control of the rail but with nothing else hopefully trying to lead then SANDFRANSKIPSGO 5/1 can from stall 9 either get to the front or at least challenge for the lead and then stay on the stronger at the finish if hitting the front it ought to be hard to catch.

Sandfrankskipsgo 14/1 1st
CATTERICK 3.30 (7.7)
I hope all 8 of these run so I can back each way if there's anything of value, Socialites Red is my 3rd top rated but if they go off at full speed it might struggle to stay the distance on this tough course, SHORT WORK 5/1 is my 2nd top rated but maybe doesn't want rattling fast ground and the 1 I think will try to set the tempo in this race although my top rated LUCKY BEGGAR 13/2 is a versatile type and that includes leading so these 2 could battle for the lead and the stronger ought to hold on for the win so again i will be backing the 2 horses to cover the angles.

Lucky Beggar 7/1 5th
Short Work 15/2 6th
YARMOUTH 7.45 (7.4)
The 3 at the bottom are all 3 year olds who could have improvement still to come although I'm very doubtful about their talent, Wild Acclaim is 3rd best here but always looks as though further would suit it better, the hold up type Born To Boogie is in 2nd top position while STRICTLY CARTER 11/2 as my top rated and this likes to track the leaders and then stay on the stronger at the finish.

Strictly Carter 8/1 4th

3:00 Beverley Racing Tips (17th July)

Horse Racing Tips
3:00 BEVERLEY Div2 (7.) 

Its fairly close between the top 3 of my ratings, 4th top is Funkadelic one of only 2 known front runners in the race, my 3rd best is Kibaar who is a hold up type and stays on at the finish and could make the frame, Highly Focussed was my original top rated but this one doesn't want the going to be too fast while COMPTON RIVER 7/1 moves to top spot with its jockeys 7lb claim, the trainer has a 24% win rate here and its the other possible pacesetter, so if getting to the front could prove hard to catch. 

Compton River 9/1 2nd

3:10 BATH (9.2) 

Only 7 runners and I've only managed to get it down to 3 of them, LOOK SURPRISED 5/1 is 3rd top but 2nd top with the jockeys claim and the jockey has a 29% win rate for the stable, ESSAKA 3/1 starts as 2nd top but 7lb claimer moves it to top spot and the trainer has a 22% win rate here, ARCHIMEDES 7/2 started as top but drops to 2nd top but the trainer is 2-5 at this course, all 3 have good stats that would point me in their direction and i may dutch all 3 of them. 

Essaka 3/1 1st + Trifecta £31.20
Look Surprised 5/1 2nd 
Archimedes 4/1 3rd 


I have to admit I do prefer the all-weather racing compared to on grass just because they insist on watering the grass and very often over doing it which does annoy me. This is a poor class 5 affair, there's a couple of 3 year olds that could be capable of improvement but I also have negatives against so hoping they don't improve here but Misty Spirit may be the one that tries to set the pace but one slower than normal so I'm hoping it doesn't get a soft lead, Pretty Bubbles is well weighted on a time from Kempton but has only recorded slow times here but my top rated is the top weight AGUEROOO 7/1 the trainer has a decent 15% win rate here and connections have employed a 7lb claiming apprentice to help their cause.

Agurooo 7/1 2nd

3:20 Ripon Racing Tips (16th July)

Horse Racing Betting Online
RIPON 3.20 (8.2)
Only 6 runners now, as my original selection is now a non runner but it has helped my cause as I've got joint top rated horses in Rose Marmara and MIDNIGHT MALIBU 11/4 who is the only front running type in the race and if allowed to dictate the pace it could make it very hard for any of the others to catch it.

Midnight Malibu 11/4 1st
RIPON 3.50 (8.2)
Another small field of 6 this time, I've got negatives against a couple which I will look to lay if they are of any value. Dubai One hasn't run this distance on good to firm going before but its the only known front runner in the race so could be a very big danger,Buccaneers Vault is well weighted and 2nd top on my figures but I've got REPUTATION 8/1 as the selection and its recorded a fast time over this c/d but i will keep my stakes on the low side with unknowns in the race.

Reputation 10/1 2nd
WINDSOR 7.20 (7.5)
Another 7 runner race but 4 of these have been known to lead and my 3rd top rated Kick On Kick On is one of them, I've got joint top rated with the top weight TOMILY 8/1 from the Hannon stable but this one might not want the going to be too fast while BUNGEE JUMP 13/2 is the other one and this one is being ridden by the champion jockey which seems strange as the newish trainer must have convinced him the horse can win this race and her record at this course is 0-11, who knows, i will go with backing them both.

Bungee jump 13/2 2nd
Tomily 11/1 7th

A 13 runner race, there's some unknowns in this race which means stakes wont be at full strength, there's a couple of possible pacesetters who are both just outside my top 3 in 6th and 4th positions, Whitecrest likes a fast pace to aim at and is a law unto himself and could make the frame, Agueroo is 2nd top here, and is also entered to run tomorrow where it has an even better chance of winning, my top rated is A SURE WELCOME 5/1 who won over c/d this 2 runs ago followed by 2 poorer runs on grass, where its still a maiden after 10 runs, so this switch back to its favoured surface good see it back in tip top form.

A Sure Welcome 6/1 Unp

12:45 Ascot Racing Tips (14th July)

Racing Tips
ASCOT 12.45 (8.6)
Where do i start with 20 runners and only 5 that i can discard completely, there's usually no advantage in the draw but I've got 5 that have led before and all drawn stall 8 or higher so maybe stalls 1-7 may struggle, the one I'm favouring to go well front the front is Foxy Forever in stall 19 and my joint 2nd top rated the other joint 2nd top is Line Of Reason in stall 18 while my top rated is OPEN WIDE 20/1 who from stall 14 could get a nice tow into the race, any stakes will be kept low and i may dutch all my top 3 and cover all my stakes by laying some of the no-hopers but i will be having a small each way bet on the selection.

Open Wide 20/1 Unp
YORK 1.55 (8.5)
Only 8 runners and I've narrowed it down to 3, I've got joint top rated horses with MUTHMIR 4/1 and ALPHA DELPHINI 5/1 but lurking near the bottom is the 3 year old ABEL HANDY 28/1 who could vie for the lead and this Listed class race is actually a drop in class, I will dutch them to make a profit.

Alpha Delphini 5/1 2nd
Muthmir 4/1 3rd
Able Handy 28/1 6th
Newmarket 2.15
WOW what a cracking race and if i had to put any cash down it would be on Blue Point 10/3 but not at this price, then A.P. O’Brien has got 5 in the race and a bunch of 3 year olds that could improve, so a race to watch and savour.
CHESTER 2.40 (8.2)
At least with only 5 runners the draw wont matter but 4 of them are 3 year olds, I've no idea what will set the pace or whether they will go a fast pace, i will be placing my faith in CROTCHET 6/4 who’s time recorded at Ripon this year puts it a few spots clear.

Crochet 7/4 2nd
HAMILTON 6.30 (7.4)
A 6 runner race where i can discount the bottom pair, Oriental Splendour is the only “known” front runners so could be dangerous but it would need to improve time wise to win this race, Alsvineris 3rd top,Scoundrel in 2nd spot with BURMESE BLAZER 9/2 in top place and has to be the selection.

Burmese Blazer 7/1 4th
HAMILTON 7.00 (7.4)
Small field again of 6 and half look as though they will struggle here, Hee Haw is 3rd best and the only known pace setter in the field, Mujassam is 2nd top and races as though further would suit but the pace might not be fast enough for its stamina to come into play, top rated is CAMEO STAR 3/1 who usually likes to track the leaders and that way it can sit just off the pace and cover any moves made and then stay on the stronger.

Cameo Star 7/2 2nd

3:15 York Racing Tips (13th July)

YORK 3.15 (8.5)
A very nice looking Group 3 sprint with 4 that would like to lead, 3rd top rated is Classical Times a front runner in stall 12 the other joint 3rd is Marie Of Lyon who could be the one to benefit if all the 3 leaders faded, DANCING STAR 20/1 another front runner in stall 5 is my 2nd top rated and looking at the ante-post price of 20/1 it could be well worth an each way wager but top rated is the 3 year old PRETTY BABY 9/4 in stall 2 and a possible pace setter and is 7/2 favourite ante-post wise, i will go with the 2 bets although the latter looks the main bet.

Dancing Star 20/1 4th
Pretty Baby 9/4 2nd
ASCOT 4.35 (8.6)
In this race the 3 at the bottom of the handicap look outclassed here but Only Spoofing has done a good time but not sure it can repeat that here but never say never, then 4 in the middle section who usually compete at this class but the top 3 are dropped in class, Normandy Barriere hasnt shone so far this year, so i will go with 2 selections EQUIMOU 14/1 and MIRACLES OF MEDINAH 8/1 and as the latter has done the slightly faster time and over this c/d I will probably tilt my stakes in its favour and each way bets may pay dividends.

Equimou 25/1 8th
Miracles Of Medinah 8/1 3rd
YORK 5.00 (8.5)
A 9 runner race with 3 known front runners and Harome my 4th top rated is a front running type and could move up taking in the apprentices 5lb claim and the apprentice has a 17% win rate for the stable but the trainer is 0-27 here,Bashiba is 3rd top and likes to track the leaders it could also move up with its jockeys 3lb claim who also has a 17% win rate for the stable, 2nd top is Henley who’s trainer/jockey stats are not that good, in top spot is EXCESSABLE 9/2 who hinted at a return to form last time out when finishing 4th, any of the 4 mentioned above could win this race but as usual I will stick with my top rated but i might have covering bets on the others if its worthwhile at the prices.

Excessable 9/2 7th
CHEPSTOW 7.15 (7.3)
This dash has 7 runners and 5 of them like to go hell for leather from the off so I'm expecting a very very fast early pace, some may pay the price and if they all pay the price then the likely winner would be Babyfact my 2nd top rated who usually likes to follow the leaders and then stay on the stronger, Quamtum Dot comes out 3rd best but usually produces its best in a lower class race, top rated is EDGED OUT 9/2 and the well worth it 3lb claiming apprentice could tip things further its way.

4:25 Carlisle Racing Tips (12th July)

Horse racing tips
CARLISLE 4.25 (8.2)
There's 4 known pacesetters in this race and 2 of my top 3 are in the 4, Pea Shooter is 3rd top who’s best time came from 2017, Billy Dylan is a 3 year old who comes out 2nd best on a Hamilton time from this year but top rated is DAPPER MAN 6/4 who has won 4 of its last 5 runs and if the going remains firm it could follow up again here.

Dapper Man 13/8 2nd
DONCASTER 4.35 (8.7)
A race I won't be getting too involved betting wise, the 3 year old Laith Alareen who has won its last 2 runs but this is a step up in class, You're Cool is 3rd top but is 0-20 on grass, 2nd top is Gamesome who would like a fast early pace to aim at which might not happen in this instance and the same applies to Kingstreet Lady my top rated, so stakes will be small if I do bet.

CARLISLE 5.00 (8.2)
There's only 7 runners and no known pacemakers so analysis is always made harder, the 3 year olds Dizzy G and Power To Exceed are my 3rd and 2nd top rated and they could both be able to improve but i will stick with the proven as usual and go with MAUREB 22/1 who is my top rated and this is good chance for it to get back to winning ways.

Maureb 22/1 3rd
NEWMARKET 5.20 (8.0)
Of the 9 runners there's 3 that like to lead and my top rated is one of them, Gracious John is my 3rd top rated but the weight might find him out here, Shamshon is 2nd top on a 2017 time but hasn't been as good so far this year, top of my pile is ARZAAK 13/2 who if getting to the front could prove hard to catch.

Azaark 10/1 5th
CARLISLE 5.35 (8.2)
I can discount 3 of the 9 runners and this race may be won from the front, I've got Gaelic Wizard as my 3rd top rated and its 1 of only 2 known front runners in this race, the top weight Roy's Dream and my 2nd top rated likes to track the leaders and could be the one to prosper if they go off too fast, this leaves me with the other front runner and my top rated GULLANE ONE 10/3 who is a 3 year old that won last time and has been found an opportunity to follow up here.

Gullane One 9/2 2nd
EPSOM 8.10 (7.5)
There's a couple that i could lay in this race and another race that may be won from the front, there's 3 known pacesetters in the race, Highland acclaim is my 3rd top rated and could be the one to take the honours if they go off too fast, Related is 2nd top and a front runner and they do go fast on this downhill course but i have got ALEEF 7/2 rated 4 spots better and if leading could stay there all the way to the line.

6:40 Bath Racing Tips (11th July)

Bath racecourse
BATH 6.40 (9.2)
With 8 runners and 3 that have been known to lead and they are my top 3 ratings as well so as long as they don't cut each others throats battling for the lead then the rest shouldn't catch them, Molly Jones is 3rd best on a Chepstow time from this year, Archimedes is 2nd top but its time was done in 2017 over this c/d while my top rated BROADHAVEN HONEY 5/2 also did its best time this year at Chepstow in the same race but is weighted to reverse the form here.

Broadhaven Honey 11/4 2nd
BATH 8.10 (9.2)
Only 5 runners and nothing much between the top 3 on times, Fethiye Boy is 3rd top and only 2 lbs below the joint top rated pair but this one is the most likely leader and with an easy lead it could easily turn that deficit into a winning opportunity, joint top is Defining Moment but this one may struggle in this class of race so I'm going with SECRETFACT 9/2 who’s trainer has a 20% win ratio here and employs a top class jockey making his debut for this stable.

Secretfact 9/2 1st
Of the 12 runners I have got varying degree of negatives against 8 of them and I would look to lay 5 of the 8, I've got joint 2nd top rated horses in Cappananty Con and Blazed but the latter can struggle at this distance if there a really fast early pace but its time was recorded this year while the former's time was run in 2017, my top rated is the top weight LITTLE PALAVER 9/1 who is also the only what I call a natural front runner in the race and if getting to the front here it could prove hard to catch.

Little Palaver 9/1 7th
