3:40 York - Carlton Frankie 8/1 (26th May)

Horse racing tips from York
YORK 3.40
A huge field of 19 but only 4 natural front runners, Boundsy is my 3rd top rated and a versatile sort with its tactics and races as though a stiffer track or longer trip would suit it better, Batten The Hatches is a front runner and my 2nd top rated drawn in stall 4 while my top rated horse is CARLTON FRANKIE 8/1 another front runner and drawn next door in stall 3, it led last time out at this c/d distance on its 1st run of the year and only got beaten three quarters of a length so hopefully its fit enough today to hold for the win this time out.
HAYDOCK 4.00
BATTASH 103 MABS CROSS 103 JUST GLAMOROUS 102
A cracking Group 2 dash and I've got it very tight at the top of my ratings, so on that point I have to go with BATTASH 4-5 as my joint top rated who is set to carry a 5lb Group 1 penalty, it will be its 1st run of the year but it has won 1st time out for the last 2 years so I'm hoping it can do so again here, my other joint top rated is MAB'S CROSS 16/1, a nice each way price, who is an improving type and entered in future Group 1 sprints so I will go with the 2 bets in this race to show a profit whichever one does the business.
HAYDOCK 4.35
With half the field being 3 year olds makes this race too tricky to be confident with, I'm not sure exactly how good 5 of the 3 year olds are and could be dangerous, if I went on form/times already achieved then ALL OUT 10/1 would be the selection and it recorded its best time last time out at Newbury a week ago so its in fine fettle which is a positive but would need to be good value for me to have a bet or I could well leave the race alone.

PS: I might go with a small each way bet now I've seen the betting.
HAYDOCK 5.10
There's 15 runners but only 2 known front runners and Dandy Highwayman is one of them and 5th top rated so could be dangerous with an easy lead but may set the race up for others who finish strongly, ATHOLLBLAIR BOY 5/1 is 2nd top who needs good to firm going to show its best and is a hold up type, MESHARDAL 14/1 comes out top and likes to track the leaders I will go with 2 small bets.

4:20 Goodwood - Open Wide 7/1 (25th May)

Goodwood Racing - May 2018
GOODWOOD 4.20
OPEN WIDE 93 RAUCOUS 89 (4/1 1st) GEORGE BOWEN 87
Its fairly tight at the top of my ratings, the early paced types here will be setting the race up for the finishers, George Bowen has done its best times on a flatter course than this and I don't think its as good on an undulating track like Goodwood, Raucous needs the going to be fast to show its best but the jockey booking looks a negative as the record is 0-14 on this stables older horses which leaves OPEN WIDE 7/1 as the selection, this one usually likes to track the leaders so should be in a prime position to get the first move to pass the leaders plus it did record its best time this year.

Open Wide 9/1 6th

BATH 5.05
SILVERRICA 104 (20/1 1st) EDGED OUT 103? UNION ROSE 101
A very nice looking race with half the field liking to lead or press for the lead, the bottom pair both recorded their best times in the same race at Salisbury last year and its starting to look like a bit of a fluke time and if that is true it leaves UNION ROSE 10/1 in top spot and that will be my bet in this race.

Union Rose 10/1 7th
PONTEFRACT 8.00
BOSHAM 93 FOXTROT KNIGHT 89 HENLEY 88 (8/1 1st)
Another tight looking race at the top of my figures, I've got 4 at the bottom of my figures I will be quite willing to lay in there of any value, Henley’s trainer has a 7% strike-rate here which isn't great but the jockey is 0-31 which looks a negative, Foxtrot Knight’s trainer has a 10% win rate here but the apprentice jockey is 0-10 for this stable, my top rated BOSHAM 6/1 doesn't have great stats but none are negatives so I'm hoping this front running type can lead all the way here.

Bosham 14/1 7th

2:50 Lingfield - Pearl Acclaim 10/1 (24th May)

Pearl Acclaim to win
LINGFIELD 2.15 

Quite a few of these have question marks against their names and I've only got 2 with recorded speed figures which doesn't mean much in this race where i cant find the pace setter/s which scuppers the running style of my top rated Whitecrest 14/1 who likes a fast pace to aim at, the other with a figure is Roy's Dream 8/1 but its such a strange race its probably best left alone in big betting terms but as long as there's no non runners in the race so you get paid 3 places I will go with 2 each way bets.



LINGFIELD 2.50 

Entertaining Ben is 3rd top and the only known front runner in the race so could be dangerous if setting its own pace but the trainer is 0-3 here and the jockey 0-22 for this stable which is a bit off-putting, Berryessa is my 2nd top and has a positive jockey booking but if the going is good to firm then i hope PEARL ACCLAIM 10/1 can finish fast to win the race, the trainer is 3-12 at this course but the jockey is 0-7 for this stable but I will have to go with backing the fastest horse in the race as always and in this case with an each way bet. 

Pearl Acclaim 10/1 8th 

CATTERICK 5.20 

What a dire race, I'm not sure what to expect from Little Miss Lola as its 1 of only 2 that have been known to lead and has a fastish time on the all-weather, Culloden would have a chance if the going isn't too fast, Thornaby Princess would have a chance on 2016 times but may need either a longer trip or a very fast pace to aim at so this might not be run to suit it, COMPTON RIVER 6/1 is top weight and top rated and the most natural front runner in the field and if allowed to set the pace its capable of leading all the way in this race, the trainer has a decent 16% win rate in apprentice races although the apprentice riding is 0-11 for this stable, if given the instructions to go from the front from the off he could break his duck but as in most of these races i will be keeping my stakes on the lowish side. 

Compton River 8/1 5th  

CHELMSFORD 5.40 

A pretty poor race but plenty of early pace and I think it will be won from the front with Lady Joanna Vassa, who recorded a decent time at Kempton on this surface but only a slow time here which puts me off as does its stall 9 draw, Celerity who isn't a front running type did a good time at Wolverhampton but is a 39 run maiden which puts me off its chances, SWENDAB 16/1 is 2nd top rated and a front runner in stall 3 and I will back it each way, while top rated HURRICANE ALERT 7/1 is a more versatile type it can lead and has stall 2 but Waneen in stall 1 is also a front runner, but i think it will sit on the rail about a length off the front ready to pounce late on but the trainers 0-20 record here doesn't inspire any confidence but i will go with 2 small bets but maybe tilted in favour of the top rated horse.

Hurricane Alert 7/1 1st 
Swendab 16/1 8th

2:30 Ayr Jessie Allan 18/1 (23rd May)

Eric Winner Racing Tips
AYR 2.30 Div 1

I've gone through this race and they're quite a few horses that could still improve, including three 3 year olds, I'm not sure of the preferred racing tactics from some of theses but only Lilly's Prince is known as a pace setting type but not on fast ground, I've found 3 with recorded speed figures, Mo Henry would be 2nd top using a 2016 time, Be Bold is 2nd top but doesn't want fast ground, my top rated is JESSIE ALLAN 18/1 who I tipped up recently when i thought they had found a good chance for the horse to lose its maiden tag but being a maiden after 39 runs alarm bells must start to ring so it might be a race to watch and keep your money in your pocket but the price permits an each way bet and I'm hoping it can at least make the frame and the race wont take much winning.
PS: I do find on turf the class 5 and 6 races are very much hit and miss and consistency is a swear word while this doesn't seem to apply in all-weather races of the same class so I'm always wary.

Jessie Allan 18/1 5th
AYR 3.05 Div 2
This division is no better in fact they're only 2 with recorded times here: Star Cracker who’s time comes from 2016 and this one doesn't seem to want firm going, Gaelic Wizard 9/1 is the top rated but its a bit alarming when the selection is an inconsistent 10 year old who is capable of leading but always looks as though 6 furlongs is too far for it, so I think its another race to leave well alone but i could be tempted to have a small each way bet if it drifts out to 12/1 or better as it would then become a value bet.
AYR 4.05
Powerallied is dropped in class here but may prefer further and doesn't want the going to be too fast, Tanasoq could be the pacesetter but usually struggles at this level but this sure doesn't look a typical class 3 race to me, Elysian Flyer hasn't shown much time-wise recently and races as though further suits it better, Plough Boy has been racing in Ireland and may need further than the minimum trip, Oriental Lilly is top rated on my speed figures but this class might find it out, again if this is a real class 3 race. They're so many ifs and buts in the race it looks best left alone, if pushed i would have to side with Tanasoq hoping it could lead and steal the race from the front but it doesn't look worth the risk at the price.

3:45 Chepstow Racing Tips: (22nd May) Prestbury Park to Win

Horse Racing Tips
CHEPSTOW 3.45
PRESTBURY PARK 95 GLOBAL TANGO 93 OPERATIVE 92
As you can see I haven't got the usual top rating of 100 because there's just too many unknowns in the race and I've put, PRESTBURY PARK 9/2, up as a tentative selection because its a front runner and if getting to the front could prove hard to catch but any stakes will be kept low.

Prestbury Park 9/2 4th AYR 4.45
This race is just as bad with a lot of unknowns in the race so once again any stakes will be kept low but once again I'm putting up RED PIKE 4/1 as a tentative selection because firstly this is drop in class from some of the races it ran in last year and secondly its a front running sort and if able to gain the lead could prove hard to catch.

Red Pike 4/1 2nd

4:05 Redcar Racing Tips (21st May)

Horse racing tips
REDCAR 4.05
MERRY BANTER 100 BATTEN THE HATCHES 99 BASHIBA 97
Just 8 runners and 3 that have set the pace before which includes my top 2 ratings who both have good trainer/jockey stats, so Bashiba could be the one to prosper if they go off too fast and burn out but i will go with the top rated MERRY BANTER 7/2 as it won last time out to show its in form plus my 2nd top rated may need this run for fitness.

Merry Banter 9/2 2nd
WINDSOR 7.45
THE TIN MAN 100 GIFTED MASTER 99 D’BAI 97
Only 7 runners in a Listed race is a poor turnout, my 3rd top rated has run in better class at times but time-wise it needs to improve so not quite sure what to expect from it, it fairly close at the top between, GIFTED MASTER 4/1 and THE TIN MAN 5/4, plus they both have very good trainer/jockey stats, my 2nd top rated is the only known front runner in the race and it won last time out so its in form and fit whilst the top rated horse has recorded a better time this will be its 1st run for over 200 days so because of the slight conflict i will have to back them both just in case the favourites not fully fit.

The Tin Man 7/4 1st

4:00 Ripon Racing Tips (20th May)

Best Racing Tips
RIPON 4.00
MAUREB (100) 9/1 (ew)

QUEEN IN WAITING (99) 11/2

SILVER STARLIGHT (97) 9/1 (ew)
Magical Dreamer looks a possible pacesetter here but needs to improve to hold on for the win as its not in my top 4, Silver Starlight usually tracks the leaders while Queen In Waiting is more of a hold up type as it struggles to stay if its a fast early pace, MAUREB 9/1 only got beat by a whisker last time out 6 days ago when it tried to lead all the way and the same tactics in this race could see it go one better here and hopefully the 5lb the apprentice claims will be enough to break the run of 3 second place finishes.

Maureb 10/1 6th
RIPON 5.00
PEARL NOIR 100 ORIENTAL SPLENDOUR 98 GAMESOME 97 13/2 14/1 (ew) 4/1
King Crimson looks the most likely front runner but needs more to win this race, both Gamesome and Oriental Splendour race as though a longer trip suits them better unless there's a really fast early pace and that might not be the case here, top rated PEARL NOIR 13/2 won last time out and its versatile when it comes to racing tactics and could sit on the tail of the leader and get first run at the pacesetter and do enough before the big finishers can catch it.

Pearl Noir 13/2 7th

3:20 Thirsk Racing Tips (19th May)

Horse Racing
THIRSK 3.20
HENLEY 100 HAROME 98 LIBERATUM 96
This should be a fast run race with 5 possible pacesetters and HAROME 7/1 in stall 14 and my 2nd top rated is one of them and both Liberatum my 3rd top and HENLEY 14/1 like to track the leaders and then stay on strongly at the finish, I will go with backing both of my top 2 in case the leader gets an easy lead and proves too hard to catch and then an each way bet on my top rated to cover both angles.

Herone 7/1 7th
Henley 14/1 8th
THIRSK 4.30

RELATED 100 MAGICAL EFFECT 99 KING ROBERT 97
This race has 3 probable pacesetters and could be won from the front, Captain Colby and Rasheeq would need to improve time-wise if leading to stay there all the way, King Robert my 3rd top and Magical Effect my 2nd top don't want it to be really fast going but my top rated is RELATED 14/1 who is the 3rd front running type and its got a jockey booked who has a 19% win rate for the yard so it points to them expecting a big run here and at the price i will be backing it each way.

Related 20/1 7th
THIRSK 5.05
CARLTON FRANKIE 100 MIDNIGHT MALIBU 97 OUT DO 96
Another race that could be won from the front, Soie D’Leau 4th top and CARLTON FRANKIE 5/1 have been known to lead and if the latter gets to the front should prove very hard to catch while both Out Do and Midnight Malibu will be trying to stay on strongly at the finish.
NEWMARKET 5.35
MR POCKET 100 OH SO SASSY 98 SHAMSHON 96
Early pace should come from Verne Castle and/or Majestic Hero but they should be setting it up for a strong finishing type and my top 2 both fit that bill, the selection is MR POCKET 3/1 who usually tracks the leaders and stays on, the trainer has a 12% win record here and the jockey has ridden 1-2 on this stables older horses, the price isn't the greatest but a winners a winner.

4/1 7th
DONCASTER 8.50
BUXTED DREAM 100 HACKNEY ROAD 98 SUMMERGHAND 97
Not a good race for class 4, Hackney Road is a hold up type, Summerghand can either be held up or track the leaders but top rated BUXTED DREAM 9/1 is one of only 3 front runners in the race and if leading and reproducing its best time from Windsor last year it should be very hard to catch and showed its well being when leading and only getting beat a length and a quarter in 5th place and this looks a little easier.

Buxted Dream 9/1 Unp

2:35 Newbury Racing Tips (18th May)

Eric Winner
NEWBURY 2.35
I love these top class 2 handicap sprints when the going is good or faster, I've got negatives against 4 horses so i will lay those, there's 3 at the bottom of the handicap that look out of their depth but 2 have done good times when being towed along in a fast run race and in their own class can set the pace and Ashpan Sam recorded a fast time at Epsom last year. The selection is POET'S VANITY 12/1 who ran its best race at Haydock in 2017, it had a run recently on the all-weather, hopefully to get it fully fit for this race but a word of caution in that the trainer Andrew Balding cant buy a winner lately, that obviously has to change at some point and I'm hoping if it will happen here if not before but it does mean my stakes wont be at full strength.

Poet's Vanity 12/1 7th
NEWMARKET 5.30
DANECASE 100 MUSICAL COMEDY 98
A poor looking apprentices race where I'm not really sure where the early pace will come from unless its Poets Princess, so i will put forward DANECASE 7/1 as the tentative selection as it usually likes to track the leaders and it can then cover any moves and stay on the stronger at the finish but my stakes will be kept low.

Danecase 9/1 5th
HAMILTON 8.35
COSMIC CHATTER 100 NINJAGO 98 UNCLE CHARLIE 98
A class 5 race with 11 runners and a couple of front runners, there's is also four 3 year olds that could improve and others that I've not got enough data about to be completely sure of what they can or cannot do so any stakes will be kept low, Aprovado who is my 4th top rated is one of those possible pace setters, Ninjago is usually held up for a run and Uncle Charlie usually tracks the leaders are joint 2nd top but my top rated COSMIC CHATTER 7/1 is the other front runner and if getting to the front could? prove very hard to catch and the price is quite tempting as it looks decent value.

2:20 York Racing Tips (17th May)


York Racecourse
YORK 2.20
CARLTON FRANKIE 100--20/1 LINE OF REASON 98--11/1 EAST STREET REVUE 97--14/1 DARK SHOT 97--25/1 EDWARD LEWIS 96--12/1 EXCESSABLE 95--20/1 ROYAL BRAVE 95--14/1 WOW! What a race this looks, class 2 with 19 entrants over the minimum trip it should be fast and furious, there's 6 runners in the race that have led before and I've got very few negatives as expected at this level. There's not much between, Edward Lewis, Excessable and Royal Brave in 4th, and joint 5th positions, East Street Revue would be 3rd top using a 2016 time but didn't reach that level during 2017 so I would need to see some improvement before i could think about backing this one, Line Of Reason is in 2nd top position but I'm not sure stall 5 is ideal at this course as a high draw seems favoured. My top rated is CARLTON FRANKIE 20/1 who raced over good to firm going at Nottingham last year and led all the way for an emphatic victory, so is entitled to contest this class and at the price it has be done as an each way bet, it seems to like fast going and a level racing surface so this track should suit it and a repeat of that time would see it win this race, it is this horses first run of 2018 but has won twice before after a break but with such a large field my stakes will be kept on the low side.

Charlton Frankie 20/1 4th
