Alan Kelly’s Horse Racing Tips for Monday 25th July

Horse racing tips for the meetings at Ayr and Windsor on Monday


handicap horse racing -freebets.com

Winners of the seven ITV races were not easy to find on Saturday, particularly the feature King George VI Stakes, the finish of which was dominated by the two outsiders, Pyledriver and Torquator Tasso. Our selection Mishriff was always fighting a losing battle after losing many lengths at the start, while the two three-year-olds, for one reason or another, just failed to turn up.

We still had a decent week, however, with three of our six naps going in at odds of 2/1, 5/2 and 3/1, while we managed a couple of winning each-way longshots, an 11/1 chance on Monday alongside International Girl’s easy sprint handicap victory at York on Friday evening, advised at 14/1. The week ahead is dominated by the Goodwood and Galway festivals. Monday’s horse racing tips feature selections from Ayr in the afternoon and Windsor in the evening.

7.35pm Windsor - Special Envoy (Nap of the Day)

On his first run in a handicap, this well-bred son of Frankel is more than capable of outclassing his four rivals in this Class 3 contest off a mark of 92.


4.25pm Ayr - Primo (Longshot)

Most of the 13 runners for this modest Class 6 five furlong handicap are well exposed, so it could pay to take a chance on one of the trio of three-year-olds in the race, the Roger Fell-trained Primo.

The Acclamation gelding showed absolutely nothing on his first two starts for Fell since leaving the stable of George Boughey in April. But the horse’s next start offered more in the way of encouragement when beaten just over three lengths at Catterick the following month.

That promising effort was rewarded when Primo won a Beverley handicap just over two weeks later, doing his best work at the finish under claiming rider Jonny Peate. While failing to follow up at that course recently, Rowan Scott’s mount may have just needed the run after a break of seven weeks and off a mark of 53 is fancied to go well.


7.35pm Windsor - Special Envoy (Nap of the Day)

Bred to be better than a handicapper, the John & Thady Gosden-trained Special Envoy, a winner on tonight’s course on just his second career start, was surprisingly beaten when sent off at odds of 2/7 at Newbury earlier this month.

It may be that the son of Frankel was beaten by a decent horse at the Berkshire racecourse, as the winner on that occasion, Jack Darcy, is now unbeaten in both of his starts and is now rated 98, some 6lb higher than Special Envoy. With jockey Benoit De La Sayette claiming a valuable 5lb allowance, the lightly-raced three-year-old, unraced as a juvenile, looks more than capable of beating his four exposed rivals in this Class 3 handicap.

8.10pm Windsor - Western Writer (Next Best)

This looks a good opportunity for the Charlie Appleby-trained Western Writer to get back to winning ways following two narrow defeats since opening his account with a half-length defeat of The Queen’s Dukedom on Chelmsford’s all-weather surface last month.

That horse has since gone on to win a Leicester maiden, from a horse who was beaten just a neck in a Newmarket handicap last week, so the form looks fairly strong. Western Writer made his handicap debut at Kempton on his next start and after losing his place ran on to beat all bar the enterprisingly ridden King Cabo.

Second again on his most recent start, this time when going down by the minimum margin at Yarmouth to a potentially decent horse of Sir Michael Stoute’s in Ikhtiraaq, the mount of William Buick should prove too good for Bath maiden winner Kaasirr and New Pursuit, who beat only one home as an odds-on favourite at Goodwood last time.
