3:05 Ripon Racing Tips (29th September)

RIPON 3.05 (8.2)

I think the early pace may be set by Acclaim The Nation from stall 3 who is my 4th top rated and could do enough to make the frame but maybe not enough to actually win, Rose Marmara my 3rd top rated and Machree my 2nd top rated both like to track the leaders but the latter may not want the going to be too fast, BASHIBA 13/2 is at the top of the pile and being drawn next door to the likely leader it could get a good tow into the race and then stay on the stronger at the finish. 

Bashiba 7/1 4th 

RIPON 3.35 

My top 2 ratings in this race are front-running types so Muscika my 3rd top rated could be the one to prosper if they go off too fast and fade nearing the finish, Mr Wagyu comes out 2nd top carrying the least weight in the race but this one does want real fast ground to show its best so I will go with backing MERLIN 6/1 who recorded its best time last year at Haydock, my stakes won't be at full power as its the horses 1st run of the year. 

Merlin 9/1 8th 

RIPON 4.45 

Its fairly close at the top of my figures, Searanger is my 3rd top rated and could be the one to take advantage if my top two who are both front-runners go off too fast and fade, my 2nd top rated Alfies Angel may not want really fast going to show its best but the topweight and my top-rated ETIKAAL 14/1 may lead and if doing so then prove hard to catch. 

Etikaal 16/1 Unp

CHELMSFORD 8.15 

A nice looking class 3 race and I hope all 8 run (in case I find an each way bet) Zamjar is 3rd top and usually runs on strongly at the finish over this distance, either or both Alsvinder and Harry Hurricane could be potential dangers as they look the most likely pacesetters and if one of them gets an easy lead they could easily make the frame, Verne Castle is my 2nd top rated and usually likes to track the leaders so I doubt the front runners will be given an easy time but my top rated is DYNAMO WALT 6/1 who won last time out but that was fifty days ago and if fully fit has a good chance to follow up here. 

Dynamo Walt 9/1 3rd 

CHELMSFORD 8.45 

Another 8 runner race, Compton Poppy has only ran once over this c/d but has recorded a fast time on the turf which would make it dangerous if taking to this surface, I cannot split the race down to one selection, JUST US TWO 10/1 could be the one to benefit if they go too fast in the early stages and fade and is top rated on a 2017 time, JORVIK PRINCE 5/1 is a front-running type and 2nd top rated on c/d times and it could get control of the rails from stall 3 which would help its cause, RED STRIPES 13/2 another front-running type is top rated on c/d times from this year and 2nd top on 2017 times, as you can see its conflicting figures and I would be looking to dutch the 3 of them to make a profit.

Red Stripes 13/2 2nd
Jorvik Prince 6/1 6th
