2:40 Salisbury Racing Tips (15th August)

Salisbury horse racing tips
SALISBURY 2.40 (7.7) 

The only sprint of the day and only 6 runners with 2 that are 3-year-olds, Delegate This Lord is 4th top rated and likes to track the leaders and at this distance on g/f going it stays on strongly at the finish but maybe not soon enough here. Secretfact is my 3rd top rated on its 2017 time and needs to improve timewise on what its done so far this year May Remain is a 3-year-old and not in my top 4 time figures and that was from 2017 and nothing much in 3 runs this year SIGNORE PICCOLO is the only known front-running type in the race from a time recorded at Haydock last year makes it my joint top rated, its had 13 runs since its last win which is a little off-putting but the good trainer/jockey stats make me think they will be trying to lead all the way here Swing Out Sister is the other 3-year-old but it may need this run for fitness and a longer trip might be needed to show its true worth. LOOK SURPRISED has won its last 2 races in class 6 then class 5 and now its stepped up again this time into class 4, I'm not completely sure if it can take the upgrade or not so it cannot be my sole bet in the race, the trainers record here is 1-22 but the jockeys stats are 2-5 which is a positive and the jockeys 5lb claim does move it to top spot. 

SUMMARY: I am not confident enough to go with just 1 selection but I do feel Signore Piccolo 4/1 could lead all the way here but Look Surprised 9/4 has the fastest time but from a lower class of race but its an improving type and I will be backing them both.

Signore Piccolo 5/2 1st 
Look Surprised 9/4 3rd
