Owen’s Group Race Outsiders! 66/1, 25/1 and 14/1 Selections (26th July)

Kenya and Seamie Heffernan winning the Irish Cambridgeshire at the Curragh 2018

After a superb day of action on Saturday, the weekend’s racing isn’t over by any means, as Sunday keeps the good times rolling with more ITV action and top-class racing. Both Ascot and York host another day of scintillating racing, while the Curragh hosts a card headlined by the Group 1 Gold Cup.

We’ll have ITV Racing Tips and Horse Racing tips for all of Sunday’s top-class action, but I’ll be focusing on drawing out the value in these top-class races. Hoping to follow 0n from recent successes, here are my outsiders for the Group action around the racecourses on Sunday!

All prices are correct and best price as of 11am on Saturday.

2.55 Curragh – Search For A Song (66/1)

Dermot Weld’s Search For A Song ended last season by winning the Irish St Leger and hasn’t been able to continue her progressive sequence into 2020. That being said, little has gone right for the clearly talented filly. She tanked into her reappearance over course and distance before a lack of race-fitness told and she weakened quickly in the final two furlongs.

That was still a promising effort and she holds excuses for her recent run at Cork, as she slipped around the bend and was pulled up straight away. She’d certainly make more appeal up in distance, with her biggest success thus far coming over 1m 6f. That being said, she’s a strong traveller and given the brigade of Aidan O’Brien runners in the field, this should be a strong test for the distance. That may well set things up for this filly to stay on strongly and snatch the second place on offer behind the superstar Magical.

3.05 Ascot – Love And Thunder (14/1)

Running once for Andre Fabre in 2019, Love And Thunder made a promising debut for John Gosden when scoring impressively at Newbury in June. She ran too free at Epsom subsequently in a Group 3 in a race that turned into a sprint, so that run does have it’s positives despite the finishing position.

Ascot should suit her much better and this big field will ensure a decent end to end gallop for her, which can help her settle better in the opening few furlongs. She’s clearly very talented and with the right connections, so the best is almost certainly yet to come.

3.40 Ascot – On My Way (25/1)

Despite running very green throughout her Chelmsford debut, On My Way made all in impressive fashion. It wasn’t the strongest of contests back in June, but the third has at least come out and won since to give it a small boost. The way she travelled in that contest was what took the eye, as despite looking vulnerable when ridden in the straight, she was tenacious and they never got any closer to her after that.

She is completely unexposed and further improvement can be expected on her second career start. She may well be able to dictate her own fractions in a race lacking pace and it would be no surprise to her out-run these lofty odds.
