8:10 Leicester Racing Tips (2nd August) Handicap

Racing Tips
Manipura comes out 3rd best but the trainer has 2 runners in this race while his record is 1-40 MAD ENDEAVOUR 4/1 2nd best but the trainer is 3-10 with his older horses here and the jockey is 4-23 or 17% win ratio for the stable. FLECKERL 8/1 is my top rated and the booking of Robert Winston looks a positive although he's never ridden for the stable before. I will go with backing both of the selections, tilted in favour of my top rated, to show a profit whichever one wins the race but the biggest problem is who is going to set the pace.

Mad Endeavour 10/1 4th
Fleckerl 8/1 5th REDCAR 4.55 Div1
A dire race with very little worthwhile form but I'm going with GAELIC WIZARD 15/2 to lead all the way, the 6th furlong usually pushes its stamina to the limit but if allowed to set its own slightly slower pace it could repel any late challenges but as I've said it is a dire race and my stakes will be low.

Gaelic Wizard 15/2 1st
REDCAR 5.30 Div2

Etienne Gerard was joint top rated and only drops to the 2nd top because SEARANGER 6/1 is being ridden by a 5lb claiming apprentice who has won once from 4 previous rides for the stable but once again my stakes will be kept low in such a poor race.

Searanger 6/1 8th
