Salisbury’s 2020 ‘King of the Outsiders’ has 3 rides at the track on Sunday

Salisbury Racecourse

It was a remarkable 2020 at Salisbury for Kieran Shoemark. Eighteen rides yielded five winners at a strike rate of 28% for a level stakes profit of £137.88. There was an 11/8 favourite in there but his others were 15/2, 20/1, 22/1 and even a 100/1 monster winner on Mere Anarchy.

After riding our winning NAP on Saturday, Shoemark has three rides at Salisbury on Sunday, all of them looking like they will go off at double figure odds. There are also cards at Navan and Wetherby for our free horse racing tips to get stuck into, including the often used Ascot Gold Cup trial, the Vintage Crop Stakes.

3.00 Salisbury – Whitsbury Manor Stud Novice Stakes Div I

Shoemark’s opening ride on Sunday is the unraced Lucia Changretta for Heather Main. That yard have had nine runners at this track in the last five years for two winners, a second and a third. Not renowned for winners of novice stakes but this filly will be just their tenth three-year-old novice runner in that same time frame, with one winner, a third and a fourth.

She is a half-sister to a couple of winners, one of them winning on their second start. The dam herself was a winner on her second start and is a half-sister to a debut winner. She will be a big price but isn’t one to discount with a win next time up entirely possible if she shows enough here. Worth noting for the future.


3.30 Salisbury – Whitsbury Manor Stud Novice Stakes Div II

Afta Party runs in the second division of the novice stakes. The gelding has already had a run, finishing eighth at Wolverhampton in December for trainer Tom Ward. The ninth has been placed three times since, including on his next start. The first two home are now rated 89 and 94 so he didn’t have much chance with those. Ward has sent just six horses to this track with three placed so sneaking the frame at a big price is not out of the question.


4.00 Salisbury – T & M Glass Handicap

A handicap runner for Shoemark’s final mount in the form of Ambarella, again for Tom Ward. She didn’t show much in novice company but took a distinct step forward for cheekpieces and the move into handicaps when last seen in action back in November.

The longer trip here should suit on the impression she gave on that occasion, down a pound in the weights and into a slightly softer Class 6 affair. The first offspring of her dam to hit the track, her dam was unraced but she is a half-sister to a winner over a mile and a half in Ireland last season so again, the step up to middle distance races should do this filly the world of good.
