Horse Racing in Britain on Wednesday afternoon comes from the meetings at Hamilton in Scotland along with Beverley in East Yorkshire. We will provide Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions for three races taking place at the latter venue.
The first race we will supply a Horse Racing tip for is division one of an extended 7f handicap at 2.20pm, followed by division two at 2.50pm and finally the last race on the card, a 17-runner apprentice handicap run over the minimum trip.
Our Tip for the 2.20pm at Beverley:
This looks a good opportunity for the Tim Easterby-trained grey Uno Gregory to open his account for the season off his lowest mark since winning two races at Ayr last autumn.
The mount of Nathan Evans, who seems to handle most types of ground, continued to run with credit in his final four starts of 2020, finishing runner-up on two occasions.
The five-year-old ran well to finish a four length eighth at Doncaster on his reappearance before failing to handle Southwell’s all-weather surface on his penultimate outing. Back on turf earlier this month at Haydock, the Gregorian gelding faced an impossible task against two big improvers in stablemate Boardman and the unexposed Ffion.
Uno Gregory faces a much easier test on this occasion and off a mark of 69 is fancied to go close. On his first start for trainer David O’Meara, Higher Kingdom could prove the main danger, along with Alibaba from the stable of Julia Feilden.
Our Tip for the 2.50pm at Beverley:
Sixth in the Silver Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot last year off a mark of 89, the Roger Fell-trained Presidential is beginning to look very well handicapped now on a revised rating of only 72. However, the mount of Ben Curtis has shown nothing like that level of form of late and is passed over until hinting at a return to something like his best.
Following three victories, Midnite Bride’s winning run came to an end when only third on the course earlier this month, suggesting that the handicapper may now have the measure of the Kodiac filly for the time being.
The horse who makes plenty of appeal towards the bottom of the handicap is the Iain Jardine-trained Equidae. While the six-year-old has won only one of his twenty starts on Turf, the mount of Jamie Gormley has run all of his best races when there has been plenty of cut in the ground.
Equidae likes nothing better than to bowl along in front, and in a race where there appears to be no other potential front runner, it would be no surprise should the selection end up making all of the running from his berth in stall five.
Our Tip for the 4.50pm at Beverley:
The winner of eight of his 106 starts to date, the veteran 11-year-old Lucky Beggar showed he still retains plenty of his old dash with a comfortable victory at Thirsk earlier this month. And the mount of Sebastian Woods once again looks the one to beat in this Class 6 apprentice handicap.
The David Griffiths-trained grey was rated as high as 89 at his peak of four years ago. And while that recent Thirsk win was the first for over two years, the Verlas gelding has gone close on a number of occasions, including when going down by a head in two races at Newcastle within three days of each other last September.
Now running off a modest mark of 55, Lucky Beggar is more than capable of following up that clear-cut Thirsk victory, under very similar conditions and from a decent draw in stall six. In a race where decent recent form is in short supply, Suwaan and Atyaaf are both capable of going well.
