Charlie McCann’s Horse Racing Tips for Tuesday 5th July

Another Odyssey to finally break his maiden tag at Ffos Las


Alpinista landed her fourth successive Group 1 when landing the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud on Sunday and the mare is now just 14/1 for the Arc with Paddy Power. Meanwhile last season’s dual-classic winner Hurricane Lane was posted out wide throughout but was ultimately very disappointing. He has much to prove at present.

Good ground at Pontefract for today’s feature meeting and there is a terrific 12f handicap which is likely to go to one of the unexposed three-year-olds.

The form of PLANET LEGEND’s second to Sea On Time at Haydock last month was given a boost when the winner followed up at Doncaster on Friday. That slowly run race did not appear to play to the strengths of this son of Galileo who is the half-brother to six winners - but none at this 12f trip.

He was doing all his best work late on at Doncaster last time and Daniel Muscott takes over in the saddle for the first time. His opening mark of 78 looks more than workable and the hope is that fellow three-year-olds Madame Ambassador and Charles Street – who have both led in the past - ensure a decent test of stamina.

The listed Pipalong Stakes is the feature contest and THUNDER BEAUTY ran a career-best when runner-up to the penalised Saffron Beach in the Group 2 Duke Of Cambridge Stakes at Royal Ascot last time. The winner is a genuine Group 1 performer, and the filly has improved for the step up to a mile in her last two starts.

One could argue something had to finish second at Ascot and that the yard – two winners from their last 56 runners in the last fortnight – could be in better form, but they had a big winner at Haydock at the weekend and this filly is well drawn and she will enjoy the forecast ground.

One win from 14 starts does not suggest she is a winning machine, but this is not the strongest of contests for the grade and the yard won the corresponding race back in 2017.

Roman Mist is another stepping down in grade having finished third at Epson in a Group 3 when last seen on Derby Day. The first two home have done little for the form since, however, and she must carry a 3lbs penalty for a previous Kempton win.

There are no prices available on the 12f 3-y-old handicap at the time of writing, but I am very sweet on the chances of ANOTHER ODYSSEY for George Scott and feel that he is an accident waiting to happen.

He was backed off the boards at Yarmouth when runner-up to Fast Forward last time and you could argue he is 7lbs higher in the weights today as he has been raised a couple of pounds and he was ridden by 5lbs claimer Harry Davies last time. Senior jockey David Probert replaces the apprentice this afternoon and he deserves to get his head in front after a number of consistent efforts.
