4.00pm Yarmouth Tips & Betting Preview 02/05/2017

Eight go to post for an intriguing race at Yarmouth on Tuesday, see our betting tips and the full race preview below.

IN SUMMARY: The ultra consistent and ever present MS GILLARD has been banging on the door for a long time now and looks ready to take her chance and gain a first victory for David Simcock under Jamie Spencer. She ran another brilliant race on her latest start when second at Brighton, headed inside the final furlong with her and the winner four lengths clear of the third. She’s only been raised 2lb and this may well be an easier race, so she is taken to land the spoils ahead of the veteran Fantasy Gladiator.

1 MONSIEUR GLORY – Won twice at the 1m 2f trip for Tom Dascombe and makes his debut for the Tom Clover yard today on the back of a good second at Bath in October when last seen off a pound lower mark. He is however entitled to need this run and his return last year resulted in a tailed off run at Nottingham, so watching the market is likely to be crucial in determining his chances today fora new yard.

2 MS GILLARD – Now a twelve race maiden who has finished second five times, with both her form figures this year reading 3222422, so she is certainly a consistent sort for David Simcock. Her latest run at Brighton was another good one, headed inside the final furlong to finish second, well clear of the third who was four lengths back. She has been raised another 2lb but this looks easier for her and she looks very capable of gaining her first win in this under Jamie Spencer.

3 VERNATTI – Only three runs under her belt for Pam Sly, showing promise on two of those runs including her seasonal reappearance at Southwell two weeks ago. That race was a very strange one though with them coming home at wide margins, as she was beaten eleven lengths with the third trailing in six lengths behind her. She’s open to improvement on handicap debut and should appreciate going back up in trip, as she stayed on well on debut at this trip at Leciester. Likely to have place claims off a mark of 65 and shouldn’t be ignored.

4 LONGSIDE – Now back onto his last winning mark which came here at Yarmouth in June, though he has been mainly poor since that win and returned this season when not showing too much at Doncaster last month. He’s entitled to come on for the run though and clearly has a race in him off this mark, with conditions to suit and Andrea Atzeni taking the ride. Likely to be on the premises and not one to discount entirely.

5 FANTASY GLADIATOR – Eleven year old veteran who has been far from disgraced this season for Michael Appleby, finishing third at Nottingham when last seen at the mile trip last month. That was a good run back on turf andhe remains on the same mark, which seems fair and he’s entitled to be involved again as going up in trip is unlikely to pose any sort of problem. He’ll be running an admirable race as always and has each way claims.

6 SILVER ALLIANCE – Triple course winner here at Yarmouth but this nine year old is coming to the veteran stage of his career and it’s showing, with his recent form leaving a lot to be desired. He has been struggling to beat home any rivals of late and his form of 980 this year doesn’t make for impressive reading and makes him almost impossible to recommend. Others have far more clearcut claims and he’s likely best left again.

7 SEHAIL – Thrice raced maiden who was an $180,000 purchase and posted a clear best effort when forth at Kempton in March, though was well beaten regardless. He should find handicaps easier though and the cheekpieces go on in a bid to eek out some extra progress. Harry Bentley takes the ride for George Peckham and market support should be noted on his handicap debut. Likely type to go close.

8 NOUVELLE ERE – Five of his six wins have come on the all weather and both his starts on the turf in 2016 ended in him finishing last, which doesn’t particularly draw you to him on paper. He ran well enough when last seen at Lingfield, finishing forth with no chance after being outpaced at the three furlong pole before staying on again late on. More needed and he’s still 5lb above his last winning mark, so others are preferred.
