5:30 Salisbury Racing Tips (13th June) Apprentice Handicap

This 12 runner apprentices race is quite competitive so any potential stakes will be kept on the low side, there's a couple of horses that have led before and one of them Beauden Barrett but it hasn't run on turf before and even then it would need to improve on its all weather times to feature here but if getting an easy lead it could possibly be dangerous but I'll stick with the proven, the other possible leader is ANONYMOUS JOHN 12/1 and this one is my joint 2nd top rated so if this one gets to the front it could prove very hard to catch and is worth a small each way bet, Danecase is the other 2nd joint top rated horse and it usually tracks the leaders and showed its well-being when winning last time out but my top rated is SWANTON BLUE 7/2 who also won last time out so is primed to follow up here, the trainer has a good 3-12 win ratio at this course and the 3lb claiming apprentice is having his 1st ever ride for the stable but he is a good jockey so I'm hoping the trainers record is a good pointer to the stable expecting a very big run from their horse in this race so I will go with backing them both to show a profit whichever one does the business.
