Our tipsters' strongest bets for this meeting

Smarkets British EBF Maiden Stakes (Div I) (Class 5)
Arabic Channel silk

Arabic Channel


Irish raider who has some good form in the book & an official rating of 79; return to this sprint trip & first-time blinkers can help to yield a victory here.

Smarkets British EBF Maiden Stakes (Div II) (Class 5)
Bugler Bob silk

Bugler Bob


Encouraging debut when 2nd to a now 86-rated rival, pulled clear of the remainder and should be more to come.

15:50 Handicap (Jockey Club Grassroots Flat Sprint Series Qualifier) (Class 5)

BELLICK broke his maiden tag at the fifth attempt when scoring in a handicap at Navan last time out. He has been raised four pounds for that success, but with the return to these softer ground conditions in his favour, he should be difficult to beat today. Rock Hill represents the in-form Paul Midgley yard and looks the likeliest forecast option this afternoon.

Smarkets Handicap (Class 4)
Show Palace silk

Show Palace


A competitive handicap in prospect here, but preference is for SHOW PALACE who is now running from three pounds below his last winning mark and is back on his preferred softer ground conditions. Only Spoofing ran well off this mark at Chelmsford last time out. He should go well here, and Suitcase ‘N’ Taxi is not easily passed over considering he has a perfect 2-2 record at this track.

Best Racing Odds On Smarkets Handicap (Jockey Club Grassroots Flat Middle Distance Series Qualifier) (Class 5)

Markhan and Plansina both have claims here carrying penalties for their respective wins last week. A chance is taken on DWIGHT D, however, who showed some smart form for William Haggas back in 2016. He is too well handicapped to ignore from his current mark of just 66, Sioux Frontier can chase the selection home now back on these softer ground conditions.

Bet On The Premier League With Smarkets Handicap (Class 5)
Duba Plains silk

Duba Plains


DUBA PLAINS was not beaten far into second in a selling handicap at Thirsk last time out. He has subsequently switched yards and is now in the care of Tristan Davidson, a trainer that has his horses in excellent form at present. This son of Sixties Icon is backed to land the spoils today, with the lightly-raced Poet’s Pride rated as the biggest danger.

£50 Risk Free On Racing With Smarkets Handicap (Jockey Club Grassroots Stayers' Series Qualifier) (Class 4)

Falak landed a maiden hurdle at Kilbeggan last time out and was a winner on his only previous attempt at this trip. He needs respecting in first-time blinkers, but preference is for DENMEAD. This five-year-old was progressing nicely prior to his poor run at the Glorious Goodwood festival. Probably best to excuse that performance, and now dropping back into this grade he looks capable of regaining the winning thread today.

Tips for Carlisle Races

Hosting Flat racing in the summer and National Hunt racing in the winter, Carlisle is known for it’s very heavy going during winter. It is also home to the Carlisle Bell, first contested in 1599.

Course: A strangely shaped course best described as a one and a half mile “pear”. The winning post is at the end of a long, gentle hill, so our Carlisle tips always look kindly on excess stamina.

Draw Bias: Carlisle’s sprint races are run around a right hand bend so being drawn low tends to provide an advantage for our tips.

Feature Race: As mentioned, the Carlisle Bell is one of the oldest horse races in England, beating more famous races like the Epsom Derby for nearly two hundred years. It is run in June each year over seven furlongs, 173 yards, and myracing will have tips online from the evening before.
