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
