“He means business” – Aidan O’Brien raids Newmarket on Tuesday

Aidan O’Brien with his third lot

There’s plenty of racing to get excited about on Tuesday, with five meetings on the schedule. Newmarket, Newton Abbot, Southwell, Fairyhouse and Newcastle all host action on a packed day. We’ll have horse racing tips for all the action, including a NAP of the Day and Lucky 15 tips.

Aidan O’Brien has started the flat season in typically rampant form, with ten winners from thirty-two runners in 2021. That includes a pair of winners at Leopardstown on Sunday and Newmarket’s Tuesday meeting is his next target. Sending over a pair of strong chances, he means business.


2:10 Newmarket – Duke Of Mantua

Costing 170,000gns as a yearling, this son of No Nay Never has a beautiful pedigree. He’s a half-brother to six winners including Grade 3 winner Turning Top and the useful Amanaat, displaying plenty of ability in three starts to date.

His opening two runs came as a juvenile, winning at the second attempt at Gowran Park in a romp over seven furlongs. The second subsequently boosted the form and making his handicap/seasonal debut at the Curragh last month, he finished a brilliant fourth off a massive weight. Rated 102, he comfortably sets the standard in this field.

He comes up against some highly regarded rivals, but he’s still unexposed and he’s the one with the proven form in the contest. If he can build on that reappearance run, he won’t be for catching without another rival taking an enormous step forward.


3.20 Newmarket – Arturo Toscanini

The sky is potentially the limit for this son of Galileo, who represents O’Brien in the feature Feilden Stakes. He’s hit the racetrack on just one occasion, winning a big-field maiden at the Curragh in November.

That was a smart performance, as despite greenness, he showed a great attitude to power home in the closing stages. That was over seven furlongs and given his pedigree, this step up in grade is a massive positive. The form of that debut victory has been boosted too, with the third winning and the fourth scoring twice subsequently.

He’s evidently very talented and looks underestimated in the market here, which is rare for an O’Brien runner. He’ll handle the faster going and with the tongue-tie fitted, there’s plenty to like about his chances.
