Racing Tips: Pontefract racecard, analysis and free betting preview for the feature race on Tuesday

PONTEFRACT is the star of the show on Tuesday, with a nine-race card.

The Listed Pipalong Stakes (3.20) is an early week treat and has attracted a strong enough field for the grade. Callum Jamieson takes a closer look.

John Gosden's Scentasia sets the standard in this mile race for fillies and mares at Pontefract.

She's the top-rated on 104 and is already a Listed winner on the all-weather.

But much of her best form has come on an artificial surface and she is far from a shoe-in here.

I'd be looking to take her on, and why it's hard to envisage a few of these improving enough to trouble her, there are a couple of options.

Roger Varian continues to fly along in good nick and his Salayel has to be a big threat after her second in the Silver Hunt Cup at Ascot.

She was keen enough there and is likely to try and grab the lead here from stall five. Pontefract can aid front-runners, but if she's too keen early again she may well set it up for her rivals.

And I'm hoping that the race will suit James Fanshawe's AUDARYA.

She'll likely be settled in the pack and with Natalie's Joy and Bubble And Squeak also likely to be prominent, she should have plenty to aim at.

She improved at a rate of knots last year and a well run mile looks perfect for her. There should be more to come this year at four and she doesn't have heaps to find anyhow.

Fanshawe doesn't send many as north as Pontefract, but has a decent strike rate when he does in recent years.

She marks a great bet with the Varian and Gosden runners ensuring she should go off a decent enough price.

Templegate's racing tips: Ayr, Thirsk, Uttoxeter and Windsor – betting preview for Monday

COUNT your Blessings at Ayr.

MACS BLESSINGS (1.10, nap) had plenty in hand when winning over course and distance 14 days ago. A 4lb rise in the weights looks fair.

MONTATHER (7.30 Thirsk, nb) won well on debut in November and came back with a solid Newmarket third. He should be spot-on for fitness after that.

LYONS LANE (4.55 Thirsk, treble) ran her best race for a while when a close third here last week. She can take another step forward.

Saturday racing tips: Matt Chapman selects his best bets for ITV Racing at Epsom on Derby day

IT'S Investec Derby day on ITV and just how good is the racing?

But we need some winners nonetheless and I'm all over one in the big race itself!

The big one, the Group 1 Derby over 1m4f, is at 4.55pm at Epsom.

I'm all over ENGLISH KING here, who I suggested on Sky Sports Racing might be better than a handicapper when he won at Newcastle last season.

I was right there!

English King goes for Ed Walker and is ridden by Frankie Dettori. He looked a monster when landing the Lingfield Trial in facile fashion from an animal not disgraced at Royal Ascot.

Stamina seems a strong suit and there should be a decent pace.

He can outstay Kameko with Russian Emperor the each-way bet at longer odds.

  • 1.50 Epsom – Twaasol
  • 2.25 Epsom – Safe Voyage
  • 3.00 Epsom – Caradoc (EW)
  • 3.40 Epsom – Frankly Darling
  • 4.15 Epsom – Love And Thunder
  • 4.55 Epsom – English King (NAP)

Templegate's racing tips: Kempton, Musselburgh and Southwell – betting preview for Wednesday

MUNTADAB (2.20 Musselburgh, nap) ran a cracker when a close second at Doncaster on comeback.

PRIMO’S COMET (12.45 Musselburgh, treble) was unlucky to go down half a length at Newcastle last week and should go close.

Templegate's Horse Racing Tips: Newmarket, Windsor and the Curragh live on ITV – betting preview for Sunday

FIRST IN LINE (4.30 Newmarket, nap) can lead them all home.

He was a bit too free when third here last time but that was understandable after a long break. Frankie blew away the cobwebs with that effort and he looks hard to beat.

2.25 WINDSOR

REPARTEE was good enough to finish third in a York Group 2 last season before running second in a big sales race at Doncaster. He won on debut on the Knavesmire so goes well fresh and should improve as a three-year-old.

Charles Hills won this last season and has a big chance with Fleeting Prince who ran well at Newcastle on comeback and is proven here.

Dark Lady held her own in good company last term and has had a wind op which should help.

2.45 NEWMARKET

TIME SCALE got the job done nicely at Chepstow last time when relishing the step up to this trip. She can find more improvement under the champ.

This is a good race though and last time winners Concessions, Kadupul and Live Stream all have more to offer.

Undertake went well in the Albany at Royal Ascot and is another contender.

3.00 WINDSOR

URBAN ICON goes well at this tricky track and needed his comeback at Haydock. He was a winner in this Listed class last season and sees out the trip well.

Pogo ran a cracker when third in the Royal Hunt Cup 11 days ago and deserves to step up in class. A repeat of his Ascot effort could be enough.

Davydenko looked rusty at HQ on return but landed four wins last term and is open to improvement.

3.20 NEWMARKET

BUHTURI caught the eye with a close second at Haydock earlier this month. A 4lb rise in the weights is fair, he likes the trip and has more to come.

Ascension looks the threat after a good comeback third at Sandown. He wasn’t helped by missing the kick and the drop in trip looks a wise move.

3.35 WINDSOR

SURF DANCER was unlucky when fourth at Sandown 15 days ago. He was finishing well before the door was firmly slammed. Moving up to a mile looks sensible and he is capable of better.

Jean Baptiste went close on the tapeta at Newcastle latest and will be fitter for that outing.

Overwrite was a solid sixth in the Britannia at Royal Ascot and can’t be ruled out.

Dance Fever won on debut here before back-to-back Kempton wins and could be a threat.

3.55 NEWMARKET

DESERT ICON went close in good company last season and needed his return here last time. This trip is ideal and he looks on a fair mark.

Elwazir is hit and miss but has gone well fresh before and likes this trip and track.

Dal Horrisgle has his sights lowered after running in Group 3s which should help.

4.15 CURRAGH

MAKE A CHALLENGE was an easy Listed winner at Naas last week and went close in the Group 1 Champions Sprint at Ascot last time. That’s hot form.

Speak In Colours was a solid fifth in the Diamond Jubilee at the Queen’s track and is best over this trip and track. He won’t be far away.

4.30 NEWMARKET

FIRST IN LINE was a solid third in a similar race over course and distance last time coming back from a long break. He should be spot on for fitness now and Frankie can steer him to victory.

John Gosden stablemate El Misk improve a bundle last season and could hit the frame.

Alignak was impressive when taking a Newcastle handicap latest and is respected for Sir Michael Stoute.

4.45 CURRAGH

MAGICAL lived up to her name last season, signing off with victory in the Champion Stakes at Ascot. She loves this trip and won’t mind if the ground is on the soft side.

Stablemate Fleeting looks the main danger after a close second in the Mooresbridge Stakes here 16 days ago.

Saturday racing tips: Matt Chapman selects his best bets for ITV Racing at Newcastle and Newmarket

IT'S a quietish weekend in Britain before the big one at Epsom.

At Newcastle the big betting race of the day, the Northumberland Plate, is over an extended 2m at 3.35pm.

COSMELLI is quirky like his trainer, but he won the Vase consolation race here off a higher mark and loves Newcastle.

Gay Kelleway's charge would be a big-priced winner but stays well on a going day and with George Rooke taking 5lb off I'll take a chance each-way despite a high draw.

  • 1.50 Newcastle – Brando
  • 2.25 Newcastle – El Hombre (EW)
  • 3.00 Newcastle – Aloe Vera
  • 3.35 Newcastle – Cosmelli (EW)
  • 2.05 Newmarket – Boccaccio

Racing Gossip: Trackman is back with the latest paddock talk as he lines up some bets at Newcastle on Saturday

But the old rascal still knows how to find the back of the net and landed a proper touch with Cairn Gorm (10-1 to 9-4) at Windsor on Monday.

Top jock Tom Marquand looked pleased as punch after he nudged Mick’s two-year- old flyer home.

Mind you, he needed something to put a pep in his step after being jocked off Derby jolly English King by Frankie Dettori.

Now, tidy Tom’s riding has been tighter than Thommo’s wallet, so this must feel like a right kick in the unmentionables.

But the colt’s trainer Ed Walker reckons the decision was a no-brainer, saying: “The stress on me, who has never ridden in a Derby and never will, legging up Tom, who has never ridden in a Derby and definitely will, would have been huge.

“Now I don’t need to worry about that any more. I hand the keys over to Frankie – and hopefully he brings the car back in first place and in good shape!”

By the way, I’m told Frankie had a grin wider than Cherie Blair’s after super-mare Enable looked the part in a secret gallop at Newmarket racecourse on Tuesday.

She’s 10-11 jolly with the sponsors to nab the Coral-Eclipse at Sandown on Sunday week and it’ll take something smart to ace her.

But rags can win and a Scottish bookie pal of mine raised a `wee dram’ to Cheshire trainer Mick Mullineaux after he landed a 1,004-1 double at Hamilton the other day.

My mate didn’t take farthing for either winner and has already got the holiday brochures out.

Aidan O’Brien doesn’t look like the sort of fella who takes many mini-breaks and he’s definitely making himself busy in the Irish Derby (7.15) at The Curragh tonight.

He runs six and punters should have a butchers at a couple of the yard’s lesser lights according to Paddy Power spokesman Paul Binfield, who said: “Sovereign won the race at 33-1 for Aidan in 2019 and we’ve seen plenty of interest in a couple of the Cashel conjuror’s outsiders.

“We’ve laid Tiger Moth at 16-1 and taken a few bets on Order Of Australia, the mount of Padraig Beggy who rode Sovereign last year.”

Meanwhile, Charlie Fellowes hasn’t stopped smiling since he landed a Royal Ascot double last week.

And I’m told cheerful Charlie expects to nick a bit more lolly with Carnwennan in the Northumberland Plate (3.35) at Newcastle today.

This fella stays better than Sir Mo Farah and the word is he skipped Royal Ascot to wait for today’s prize.

Trackstar

BERKSHIRE PHILLY (7.00) went close over C&D last time and should be sharper today.

By the way, Charlie has got another ace up his sleeve in Duel In The Sun.

Connections paid a nice few bob for this big boy and were well pleased with the way he shaped behind a Gosden hotpot at Newmarket the other day.

Charlie reckons this one could be the best he’s trained and has pencilled in a mile novice event at Doncaster next.

Keep `em peeled and `get on’ wherever he turns up!

Finally, it’s time to say adios to one of racing’s great characters in Hampshire trainer Peter Hedger.

He’s been in the game since The Beatles were top of the pops and saddles his last runner when C’Est No Mour lines up at Windsor on Sunday.

Pistol Pete knows more angles than Ronnie O’Sullivan and has landed some king-sized tickles over the years.

He’s an odds-on certainty to be missed by track regulars and plenty of faces will be hoping he goes out with a bang.
