Salisbury stages the feature race on Wednesday afternoon with the Listed Upavon Fillies’ Stakes at 3.30pm. We have a horse racing tip for this 1m 2f contest along with two selections from the card at Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire, while today’s nap runs in the 2.30pm sprint handicap at Salisbury.
“Tip of the Day” - Amor De Mi Vida (2.30pm Salisbury) - 10/3 with Coral
With the advantage of stall one and the services of Hollie Doyle in the saddle, Archie Watson’s consistent sprinter is fancied to win for the third time this season.
2.30pm Salisbury. 5f
Our Tip: Amor De Mi Vida (Nap) - 10/3 with Coral
This sprint handicap run over the minimum trip looks to concern the two horses at the top of the handicap, the Archie Watson-trained AMOR DE MI (Nap) and Glamorous Breeze from the Christopher Mason stable, with preference for the former.
The mount of Hollie Doyle, a winner over today’s course and distance last May, has yet to finish out of the first three in six starts in 2022, including victories at Yarmouth and Haydock. Three of the fillies’ five career wins came with Hollie in the saddle and with this front-runner coming from stall one, the partnership, with the advantage of the rails position, are fancied to take some pegging back.
Glamorous Breeze and 3lb claimer William Cox will be challenging the selection towards the business end of the race. But the four-year-old’s experienced pilot is expected to have saved enough to repel the late flourish of her main rival.
3.10pm Beverley. 7 1/2f
Our Tip: Bungley (Nb) - 9/2 with bet365
Following two good runs in handicaps over today’s course and distance this season the Tim Easterby-trained BUNGLEY (Nb) should appreciate this drop into claiming company and will take plenty of beating if able to reproduce either of those performances.
The three-year-old filly has been running consistently well over the last few months, apart from when finishing last of seven at Haydock last Friday. The mount of David Allen has never been at her best with give in the ground. So back on going (good to firm) much more suitable, the daughter of Bungle Inthejungle is expected to open her account for the season at the main expense of the veteran Twin Appeal.
3.30pm Salisbury. 1m 2f
Our Tip: Kind Gesture (e.w.) (Longshot) - 17/2 with Betfred (3 places)
On ratings this Listed race looks to concern the ex Jessica Harrington-trained Climate, now in the care of John & Thady Gosden, and Rose Of Kildare from the Charlie & Mark Johnston stable. While both fillies have obvious claims, the value may lie with the Roger Varian-trained KIND GESTURE (e.w.) who can only improve upon what the daughter of Decorated Knight has already achieved.
Unraced as a juvenile, Andrea Atzeni’s mount didn’t see a racecourse until finishing a promising second in a Nottingham maiden back in May. With that run under her belt, the highly-regarded filly landed the odds in her next two outings before stepping up into Group 3 company at Royal Ascot.
Holding every chance in that classy fillies and mares contest until weakening inside the final furlong, Kind Gesture is fancied to build on that first venture at Pattern level, especially with this extra two furlongs expected to suit.
3.40pm Beverley. 7 1/2f
Our Tip: Bin Hayyan - 6/1 with bet365
Despite having to shoulder top weight of 10st, Liberation Point should prove hard to beat in this extended 7f contest, especially with talented claimer Frederick Larson taking 5lb off. However, I prefer the chances of the horse at the other end of the handicap, the David O’Meara-trained BIN HAYYAN.
The grey son of Dark Angel looked an unlucky loser over today’s course and distance back in June when repeatedly denied a clear run inside the final two furlongs, only to go down by a neck to winner Proud Archi.
While the colt has been beaten on his two subsequent starts, the mount of Daniel Tudhope failed to act on Epsom’s undulations before pulling far too hard at York on his most recent start last month. Providing Bin Hayyan settles better on this occasion, the unexposed three-year-old is handicapped to win this Class 4 contest off a mark of 74.
