Another day, and another six meetings to look forward in Britain and Ireland. Lingfield, Uttoxeter, Catterick are the afternoon host, before Killarney, Yarmouth and Wolverhampton taking over in the evening.
We’ll have horse racing tips for all the action, but I’ll be focusing on the horses making a long Wednesday journey. Sending horses across the country is both a costly and time-consuming exercise, so it’s always interesting to take note of those going on mammoth journeys. These three horses are doing just that on Wednesday and they form an 106-1 accumulator. Find all the details below!
2.45 Lingfield – Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 EBF Fillies’ Novice Stakes
Making a 542-mile round trip from Mark Johnston’s North Yorkshire base, Outside World will bid to make a winning debut. A daughter of Iffraaj, she’s a half-sister to several winners, including the Listed scorer Hawkesbury.
This trip is likely to be on the sharp side for her debut, but she’s extremely well-bred and Johnston’s juvenile runners are usually clued up for their debuts. Johnston has an 18% strike-rate with his two-year-old runners on the turf in the last five years from a staggering 1326 runners. This filly will look to continue that trend under Franny Norton.
3.55 Lingfield – Watch Free Race Replays On attheraces.com Handicap
Another trainer sending a horse down to Lingfield from North Yorkshire, John Quinn sends Captain Jameson on a 490-mile round trip. Now a six-year-old, he’s not the most frequent of winners, but his 2021 form has suggested he’s nearing the boiling point.
He currently sits fifteen pounds below his last winning rating and has placed on three occasions this year, including a nose defeat at Catterick off a pound higher. He’s at his best with a strong pace to chase over six furlongs and he’ll certainly get that here.
He’s still largely unexposed on the All-Weather and off this rating, he has to be considered a huge danger.
8.05 Yarmouth – QuinnBet Handicap (Div II)
David Evans sends a trio of horses on a 488-mile round trip to Yarmouth and Portelet Bay looks to be the standout chance. He gained his sole victory at Redcar back in April and has remained in fair form since.
He finished second in the first-time cheekpieces at Thirsk on his next start, with two subsequent starts being below that standard. He’s capable of far better, however, and his optimal scenario is six furlongs on faster ground.
That’s the scenario he’ll get here and given how positively he reacted to first-time headgear at Thirsk, the fact he’s now visored is a big positive. In the last two weeks, Evans’ holds a 35% strike-rate from his last 20 runners and that bodes well to a big effort from this three-year-old.
