The flat season really kicks into high gear this week, with the Derby, Oaks and Eclipse headling a weekend jam-packed with top-quality action. After Irish Derby weekend and Royal Ascot, we are blessed to have horse racing back and in full swing!
We’ve got horse racing tips for all the action on Tuesday as we build towards the weekend, but we’re going to be focusing on the in-form trainers in this article. Whether it’s a track they excel at or a trainer whose horses just can’t be stopped, here’s myracing’s Tuesday Trainer Treble!
3.15 Musselburgh – Firewater (3/1)
In the past five seasons, Richard Fahey has been the man to follow at Musselburgh. Sending 207 runners to the track, he’s kept up a very good 16% strike rate and if you’d have backed all his runners to a £1 stake, you’d have profited £21.05!
His best chance on the card looks to be Firewater, who was making his seasonal return when beaten just a head at Newcastle earlier this month. He really caught the eye by the way he travelled into the contest over ten furlongs, only collared in the final strides.
Stepping up to twelve furlongs should really suit on that evidence and he’s effectively a pound lower today, with Connor Murtagh’s three-pound claim offsetting a two-pound rise in the ratings.
5.05 Doncaster – Selsey Sizzler (8/1)
Sending out fifteen runners in recent weeks, William Knight has landed four winners, with 40% of his horses also placing. He looks to have an extremely interesting chance with Selsey Sizzler, who was upped to 1m 6f on his latest outing when third at Yarmouth.
Having his first run of the campaign, he travelled up extremely well and although he did stick on well towards the finish, a lack of sharpness perhaps blunted his finishing effort. He remains totally unexposed as a stayer and the booking of Oisin Murphy is a huge positive. The last time Murphy rode for the Knight stable, he won the Silver Hunt Cup Cup on Sir Busker. Perhaps this partnership can once again reap the rewards.
7.15 Leicester – Blairlogie (7/1)
It’s been profitable to follow Mick Channon at Leicester in the past five seasons, with the Berkshire trainer holding an 18% strike rate from 77 runners. That has amassed a profit of £16.75 to level stakes and he runs two at the venue on Tuesday.
The one to focus on is Blairlogie, a lightly-raced three-year-old who was making his seasonal debut when third over course and distance two weeks ago. He ran better than the bare form figures suggest and he should have come on plenty for the outing. George Bass, a seven-pound claimer who has placed on four of his last five rides, takes over and that should prove crucial to his chances.
