Hi Racing fans! Welcome back to a fresh week which means fresh selections! We were very unlucky in the running on a few of our selections but hoping this week brings us more luck and I have some cracking selections to get the week underway.
Just something to note – a lot of selections that I have provided already have won next time out, so we’re definitely going in the right direction. I have a lucky 31 selections for you for Tuesday, and as per usual, will leave my next best and Nap selections until the end of the article.
MOSTALLIM is a very solid option here and almost guaranteed to give his running. He rarely runs a bad race and comes here as the highest rated horse. 7/1 looks way too big in this sphere especially for each way players. Frederick Larson takes the ride tomorrow and gets to claim 7lb on the top weight which effectively drops him in the weights a little. This could play all the difference and he is a great alternative to the likely short priced favourite who still has to prove he is up to this level and one worth taking on.
MOSTALLIM however has already ran and won in some valuable handicaps before and is still probably improving a little. He has won over this course before and the 7lb claim makes him of massive interest here. I think he is a tremendous value for each-way players here.
WHITTLE LE WOODS runs in a 4 runner race and could be a little ahead of these with the step up to 7 furlongs likely to suit. He has ran well on the switch to turf and is a 3y-o going in the right direction for sure. He stayed on well on his previous two starts, and steps up to 7 furlongs for the first time. This is likely to play to his strengths and having now had the two runs on turf I expect him to run a big race here.
The small field will play into his strengths and allow him to find his foot into the race. The stable won this two years ago and tend to save a good one for this. Holds all the value for me in this and is one to side with in a decent 4 runner race. Overpriced…
ARRANMORE comes here in great form and finally got his head in front last time after a string of decent efforts in defeat. He was beaten twice by the progressive six strings but narrowed the gap significantly at there second meeting before cosily winning last time out. He is only 4 and his mark is getting higher and higher but the penalty he runs under here may not be enough yet for the handicapper to stop him and looks great value on the evidence of his last run. Versatile ground wise and will take all the beating here.
MRS MEADER is a lovely honest 5y-o filly who should be primed for this run here after her recent effort in defeat. She is still a maiden but has placed in three of her last four starts for her new trainer and could have found a perfect opportunity here for her first victory. She was a very fast finisher last time and would’ve won with another 2 strides. The three of them were clear of the rest and my selection MRS MEADER looked crying out for further, not just this time but also on her penultimate run also.
The extra two furlongs she gets here could play all the difference and could yet bring out some more improvement in the 5y-o. Getting the hang of the game well now and will be hard to beat here. She has also got close to Aria Rose a couple of runs back and she’s gone on to much better things since. This leaves my selection very unexposed in this contest and takes my eye off the likeliest winner this time round. 5/2 could be great value, considering she has been better than what the form figures suggest.
My Nap selection for Friday’s racing comes in the name of CAMACHO MAN, who looks in great form from his seasonal reappearance run last time out and could yet have more to come. This was actually his best race of his career so far and he would have probably needed the run so I am expecting even more this time out.
He actually makes his debut for the Tony Carroll stable and he is a specialist at finding more from 4&5y-os so he could even come better still for that career best reappearance. He has been highly tried over further and drops back to 7 furlongs for the first time since 2019 and I think this is what will help him get his head in front here and I am expecting a big big run from him over this trip. He actually has ran very well over 7 before this finishing in the places a while back and I think he is a much better prospect now. Could be slightly ahead of a few of these and probably the time to catch him.
CAMACHO MAN is in calmer waters today and if he can reproduce his last run, he would go very close, so the improvement I am anticipating puts him right in the mix for this one. Could be the pick of an ordinary and 4/1 looks more than fair.
