2:40 Nottingham Racing Tips (12th May)

Are you ready to bet?
NOTTINGHAM 2.40
With 16 runners its going to be hard to find the winner here's my top 3 highest rated speed figures, Jabbarockie is well weighted to make 3rd top, Pearl Acclaim is 2nd top rated but is dependent of good to firm ground to show its absolute best, my top rated is ARZAAK 16/1 who is a front running sort and ideally drawn in stall 15 so hopefully it can lead all the way here and the jockey booked to ride has a 2-6 record for this stable so at the price I will have to go with an each way wager.

Arzaak 16/1 6th
HAYDOCK 3.45
A poor turnout of just 6 runners, 2 have negatives against their names and 1 has a time quite a bit lower than the top 3, if DANCING STAR 9/4 is fit enough to run to its best then it would be my top rated and the betting seems to think its got a decent chance, Intisaab could be the safest bet in the race but is only 3rd best, my 2nd top rated Mythmaker needs good to firm ground to show its best and as that's what the description says so this one looks likely to be the main danger if the selection isn't fully fit but i will stick with the top rated as usual.

Dancing STAR 9/4 3rd
NOTTINGHAM 3.50
A very competitive Listed race with 13 entrants, I've got Belledesert and Clon Coulis as my joint 3rd top rated and I've joint top rated as well with Time To Exceed and UNDER THE COVERS 20/1 the latter becomes the selection due to the fact its a front running type and if it runs to its best ought to hold on as the other one would need a completely flawless run, at the price i have to go each way but my stakes wont be at full power.

Under The Covers 28/1 6th
THIRSK 7.45
Eternalist is well weighted and is my 3rd top rated and stall 9 is good, ANNIE SALTS 14/1 is the other known front runner in the field and if this one can get to the front it could prove very hard to catch and will probably be my main bet in the race but i always have to back my top rated and ROSE MARMARA 11/1 is top here but the trainer is 0-13 at this course and the jockey 0-46 for this stable which is very off putting, maybe the trainer uses this course and jockey to gain fitness as this is only the horses 2nd run back since the 4th of September, i will have to go with backing them both each way.
THIRSK 8.45
I'm not really sure what will set the pace in this race but something will but it is a poor race, Searanger is 2nd top rated but this hold up type might not get the race run to suit its style as there's a lack of pacesetters in the race, I've got ETIENNE GERARD 12/1 as my top rated and this one could cover the front runners and be close enough to deal with whatever sort of pace will be deployed in the race it has to be backed each way but my stakes will be kept low.
