The weather remains doom and gloom, but the racing should keep us in good spirits! There are five meetings on Tuesday, with Brighton, Beverley, Ayr, Newbury, and Newton Abbot all hosting action. We’ll have horse racing tips from all the venues, including a NAP of the Day and accumulator.
The attention is drawn to Ayr, however, with three Irish yards sending over horses to Scotland on Tuesday. There are three raiders on the horizon and the accumulator pays 660-1. Find all the details and analysis below!
The first Irish runner is a big price, but perhaps Ardbrin has been underestimated in the market for Sarah Dawson. He makes the journey from County Down for his handicap debut, having steadily improved in three novice runs.
His best effort came at Haydock last time back over seven furlongs, finishing a fair fourth after making the bulk of the running. He makes his handicap debut back over a sprinting distance and given the way he travelled last time, that may well suit.
The first-time visor is another cause for optimism and with Ben Curtis in the plate, an opening mark of 65 should give him some wiggle room.
The feature race on Tuesday is the Listed Land O’Burns Fillies’ Stakes and Jessie Harrington sends over Dickiedooda. This isn’t her first run in Britain this year, having contested the Listed Lansdown at Bath earlier in the year.
She was narrowly behind Wise Words on the occasion, but she posted a career-best on her most recent start behind Logo Hunter at Cork. She put up a big performance against the boys, doing all her best work late and going down by just a length.
On ratings, she does have a bit to find with Keep Busy, but the ground is in her favour and the race should set up to suit. She’s been consistent in Listed races this year and another likeable effort is on the cards under Cam Hardie.
4.20 Ayr – Ayrshire Cancer Support Handicap
The R K Watson yard send over a pair of horses to Ayr on Tuesday, with the first being in the aforementioned Land O’Burns. His best chance, however, comes in the next race in the form of golden oldie New Society.
He’s now a seven-year-old, but he deservedly broke a losing sequence when scoring over this trip at Fairyhouse ten days ago. Turning out just three days later at Gowran, he ran to a similar level when finishing midfield in a better contest.
He’s now a pound higher for this engagement, but the rattling fast ground will play massively into his favour. All of his wins have come with good in the description and three of them came on this side of the Irish Sea. Winning off a mark of 77 back in 2018, his current rating of 66 is certainly achievable and the booking of Ben Curtis is a huge positive.
