“Tip of the Day” - Latino Fling (8.00pm Uttoxeter) - 11/2 with bet365

The winner of three races already this year, the mount of champion jockey Brian Hughes was far from disgraced in finishing third behind a couple of in-form horses at Cartmel last time and looks the one to beat in this mares’ handicap hurdle.

3.15pm Pontefract. 1m

Taken at face value, Thunder Beauty’s second behind Saffron Beach in the Group 2 Duke Of Cambridge Stakes at Royal Ascot last month puts the David O’Meara-trained filly well ahead of her eight rivals in this fillies and mares Listed race.

The daughter of Night Of Thunder posted some decent efforts when in the care of Ken Condon in Ireland before joining O’Meara last August. But the filly could have been flattered by that career-best performance at the royal meeting with the likes of Mother Earth and Bashkirova running way below their best.

One horse who has continued her progression this season is ROMAN MIST (Nb) from the Tom Ward stable who is equally effective on both turf and an all-weather surface. The mount of William Buick won a Listed race at Kempton in April, beating Potapova and My Astra in a tight finish.

Considering the third horse has since won a Listed race at Ayr by 12 lengths before just failing to land the Group 1 Pretty Polly Stakes at the Curragh last month, highlights the strength of that form especially with the fourth horse Lola Showgirl going to to take a Group 3 race at Lingfield.

Beaten less than two lengths in Epsom’s Princess Elizabeth Stakes on Derby Day when possibly hitting the front too soon, Roman Mist can get back to winning ways at the main expense of Thunder Beauty and Rising Star, who ran out a shock 40/1 winner of the Kensington Palace Stakes at the royal meeting.


3.45pm Pontefract. 6f

Dream Composer has been in great form over the last couple of months, winning races here at Pontefract and at Goodwood as well as going close on several other occasions. Dougie Costello’s mount looks sure to be there or thereabouts again, as does recent Doncaster scorer Recall The Show. But at a double-figure price the Kevin Ryan-trained BERGERAC (Longshot) makes plenty of each-way appeal.

Kevin Stott’s mount was not seen at his best last month but any of the gelding’s three runs of earlier in the season would put the four-year-old in with a great chance of winning this sprint handicap off a mark of 87, the horse’s lowest since finishing second to last month’s Wokingham runner-up Popmaster at Doncaster last July.

7.20pm Ffos Las. 7 1/2f

The unexposed three-year-old Space Trucker, unraced as a juvenile, is unbeaten in both of his starts this season, at Lingfield and Windsor, prior to making his handicap debut here off a mark of 93. Richard Hughes’ charge could have been let in lightly but David Egan’s mount looked far from straightforward on his most recent start and is passed over in favour of top weight PERCY’S LAD.

The son of Sir Percy won on his first two starts since joining Daniel & Claire Kubler back in April before finishing second to I’m A Gambler at Beverley off today’s mark of 96. Thirteenth in the Royal Hunt Cup on his most recent start, Richard Kingscote’s mount took the field along for much of the race until weakening inside the closing stages.

This small field is sure to suit Percy’s Lad much better and if allowed to dictate matters from the front, could take plenty of catching.


8.00pm Uttoxeter. 2m 4f

On her first start since joining trainer David Pipe from Alan King, the four- year-old Kalma is the most interesting runner in this mares’ handicap hurdle off an opening mark of 108. The mount of Tom Scudamore could be well-in on just her fourth outing over the smaller obstacles. But this looks a good opportunity for the partnership of LATINO FLING (Nap) and champion jockey Brian Hughes to record their fourth victory of the year.

Following wins at Catterick, Musselburgh and Sedgefield, the Donald McCain-trained daughter of Milan lost nothing in defeat when finishing third behind Finest View and Island Mahee on her most recent start at Cartmel at the back-end of May.

The second on that occasion went on to claim a valuable handicap on that course a month later, with Finest View also running well to finish just behind the runner-up in fourth place. Despite running off a career-high mark of 108, Latino Fling is more than capable of defying that sort of a mark with conditions to suit.
