Alan Kelly’s Horse Racing Tips for Wednesday 3rd August

Horse racing tips for the meetings at Pontefract & Yarmouth on Wednesday

Pontefract Betting Tips

A busy day of Flat racing in Britain on Wednesday with the afternoon meetings at Brighton, Pontefract and Newcastle, while Yarmouth and Kempton Park provide the action in the evening. Today’s horse racing tips feature two selections from Pontefract and one from Yarmouth.

3.20pm Pontefract - Kincade (Nap of the Day)

Off a low weight and with Hollie Doyle booked for the ride, Jedd O’Keeffe’s unexposed stayer looks the one to beat in this 2m 1f stamina test.

3.20pm Pontefract - Kincade (Nap of the Day)

Trainer Jedd O’Keeffe may hold the key to the outcome of this 2m 1f stamina test courtesy of the only two three-year-old’s among the field of six, Nikhi and Kincade.

The former opened her account for the season when stepping up to two mile for the first time, coming out on top in a close finish at Chester last month. The filly is respected off a mark only 2lb higher but it is stablemate Kincade who is fancied to come out on top with only 8st 3lb to carry and the services of Hollie Doyle in the saddle.

The lightly-raced gelding produced his best performance to date, finishing third behind multiple scorer Mostly Cloudy at Sandown on his most recent start. Gemma Tutty’s charge has gone on to win three more races since then, earning a mark of 93 and with connections considering Listed races for the improving colt. Kincade has nothing of that quality to beat here and should take plenty of beating.

5.20pm Pontefract - Run This Way (Longshot)

Five of the seven turf victories achieved by top-weight Corinthia Knight have come at the West Yorkshire racecourse, a venue which clearly suits the running style of the Archie Watson-trained gelding. Jockey Hollie Doyle gets on so well with the seven-year-old, but a 4lb penalty for winning here recently may prevent the sprinter from following up.

High numbers can have a clear advantage when the going turns soft on the course, and with heavy showers forecast for the area, it could pay to take a chance on the Paul Midgley-trained Run This Way, berthed highest if all in stall 10.

The filly was an easy winner over course and distance last October as a 40/1 chance and recorded her third career victory when taking a Thirsk handicap on her reappearance back in April.

The mount of Graham Lee is at her best with plenty of give in the ground, so providing conditions are on the soft side of good by race time, a big run is expected.

6.10pm Yarmouth - Gulmarg (Next Best)

Despite having finished last of three on his most recent start at Thirsk, the overall form of the Sean Woods-trained Gulmarg looks the best of the three previous winners contesting this 7f nursery.

Tom Marquand’s mount lost little in defeat when failing to cope with a couple of decent juveniles in Metahorse and Urban Sprawl at Thirsk after being slowly away and is better judged on his previous comfortable victory at Chepstow.

The form of the other two winners in the race, Miska and Double O, has not really worked out, with both horses finishing stone last on their next appearance.
