Galway Festival Tips – Monday 27th July

Fifty Two weeks of waiting are over and the assault on the senses, which is the Galway races are back!

The opening race at 5:10, a two mile Novice Hurdle, can fall to the ever powerful Willie Mullins & Ruby Walsh combination courtesy of Tarkari, available at a best priced 5/1 with Boylesports.

Given the testing conditions (which should suit Tarkari far more than several of today’s rivals), a drop back in trip should be ideal.

Best Bets for Monday’s Racing

After a couple of promising efforts John Dunlop’s well regarded Times Up can score in the 4:30 at Leicester now that he steps up in trip and the 6/4 generally available with any of the following bookmakers makes appeal –  Ladbrokes, Stan James, Paddy Power.

Later on at Windsor, take a bit of the 3/1 with Bet365 about Nadeen, building on his debut success in a Brighton maiden.

Two win singles and a win double is today’s advice.

This weekend’s best bets from Goodwood and York

A perfect forecast and six meetings across the country mean it’s time to slap on the Hawaiian Tropic and get fired into the best of this weekend’s racing action, and with the Channel 4 Racing cameras stationed at Goodwood, Haydock and York for an 8-race bonanza, there’s punting opportunities a plenty.

Here at picturesque Goodwood it isn’t quite as hot as the 30 degrees we enjoyed in Rome in midweek, but I don’t mind sacrificing a few degrees when there isn’t a knife wielding Italian attempting to stab you in the backside lurking around every corner and behind every building, although the ageing parking attendant wielding a megaphone in the press car park does look pretty menacing in his fluorescent vest.

On a more serious note, the Sussex track should be applauded for their various initiatives in trying to get more people to come racing – it’s a debate inspired by the much discussed ‘Ben or Brian’ saga, and one we’ve been chewing over on the Morning Line the last coupe of weeks – and having got more than 9,000 to their new bank holiday fixture last Monday (many of them first time children) Goodwood are doing at least as well as anyone.

Meehan primed for Irish Guineas double – Bank Holiday Weekend Tips?

The wide open expanse of County Kildare’s famous Curragh racecourse could be humming to a slightly surreal tune this weekend as Manton handler Brian Meehan launches a potent dual attack on the boylesports.com 1,000 and 2,000 Guineas.

While the Irish may be threatening a whitewash in our Derby on June 6th – the graphic on the front page of today’s Racing Post displays the fact they’re responsible for the first six in the betting and nine of the first eleven, while William Hill have slammed the door shut on their market about an Irish-trained winner of the Epsom Classic – Wiltshire based Meehan could be about to exact a bit of Anglophile revenge by walking away with both of their Guineas.

Forget the fact Limerick-born Meehan is as Irish as the Liffey and focus on the great chance awaiting Delegator in the boylesports.com Irish 2,000 Guineas at 3.45pm on Saturday.

Nehaam the value in key Derby trial?

Three times since 2004 the totesport.com Dante Stakes (2.40pm York this afternoon) has thrown up the Derby winner, and the one to be on in this afternoon’s race could well be John Gosden’s Nehaam.

Unbeaten in two starts his pedigree suggests a mile and a half should be well within his range, and having netted a hugely valuable prize at Newmarket’s Craven Meeting he can take another giant step towards Epsom this afternoon.

He’ll love the ground and is probably John Gosden’s best three year old – back him each way at 10/1 with William Hill.

Getcarter to tie the bookies in a knot at Windsor?

Windsor’s ever-popular Monday night fixtures are a real draw down by the Thames, and Richard Hannon could be celebrating now Getcarter tries his luck in handicap company in the mapismodellingacademy.co.uk Handicap at 8.20pm tonight.

Potentially thrown in off a mark of just 68 Hannon has got him flying for his seasonal debut, and a big run is firmly expected from the three year old.

The 100/30 with Skybet and Sportingodds can prove to be a worthwhile investment.

Stoute primed for more Chester success?

Sir Michael Stoute sent favourite backers home happy on day one of Chester’s May Meeting as Harbinger (in the process earning a 25/1 quote for the Derby) recorded an emphatic success to mark himself down as a horse to follow, and today Doctor Fremantle can give the master trainer his fifth win in nine runnings of the Group 3 Huxley Stakes (2.15pm Chester).

The winner of last season’s Chester Vase before going on to finish fourth in the Epsom Derby following a troubled passage, he thrives at Chester and is said to be flying at home; as such he rates a nap bet at 7/4 with any of bet365, Stan James, Ladbrokes or William Hill.

Half an hour later the Virgin Money Chester Vase is the feature of the Ladies’ Day card, and John Gosden’s Derby entry Debussy can upset Irish raider Masterofthehorse at 5/2 (generally available with most bookmakers).

This likeable Diesis colt won at Lingfield in March before stepping up considerably on that effort in a hot race at Espom a fortnight ago. Back him to continue his progress this afternoon.

Thursday’s Chester tips:

2.15 – 2 Doctor Fremantle (win) @ 7/4 (bet365, Stan James, Ladbrokes & William Hill)

2.45 – 2 Debussy (win) @ 5/2 (general)

Newmarket 2000 Guineas Tips Look Like Great Value

Many of the regular readers and followers of Tom’s Tips on this site will be eagerly anticipating Saturday’s Stan James 2000 Guineas at Newmarket as they clutch their antepost vouchers on the back of Tom’s advice from the last few weeks.

Back in March, Tom advised an each way bet on Mastercraftsman to win the opening Classic of the Flat Season at odds of 7/1, and the Aidan O’Brien runner is now best price 9/2 following good support in the last couple of weeks.

Tom’s other tip for the 2000 Guineas came last month when he advised an each way bet on Delegator at odds of 20/1 on the back of breaking news that the Brian Meehan Colt had produced a great piece of work on the Gallops, news that was confirmed in style when he won the Craven Stakes over Course & Distance a week later. He is now the joint 7/2 to win the race.

Latest 2000 Guineas Odds

Good Luck and enjoy the fantastic weekend of live sport, not forgetting to view some our free bets that can be claimed on all the live action from the Classics at Newmarket to the Hatton fight in Las Vegas!

Hourigan hotpot not without a prayer in Sandown showpiece?

They say time flies and remarkably it’s four years since my RTE colleague Ted Walsh sent a lightly weighted ten year old in the shape of Jack High across the Irish sea to win the then Betfred Gold Cup, and tomorrow I fancy another Irish challenger to scoop the final major prize of the British National Hunt season.

The race which will be referred to forever and a day as the Whitbread in now sponsored by Stoke-on-Trent outfit bet365, and I reckon the latest name to be engraved on their Gold Cup will be that of another nicely weighted Irish-trained ten year old: Church Island.

The selection has been in good nick this year winning a competitive veterans’ chase at Doncaster (third that day Briery Fox came out and won at Ascot beating a good horse), before a decent second at Newbury behind tomorrow’s top weight Darkness.

A no-show at Ascot preceeded a tilt at the Irish National less than a fortnight ago, and you couldn’t fail to be impressed with the way he saw out the marathon 3m 5f trip, finding only Niche Market too strong after racing prominently for the majority of the race. If he can re-produce a similar display then he’s entitled to be bang in the mix in what doesn’t look the strongest renewal.

Youngster Luke McNiff was in the plate that day, and he deservedly got his share of praise for getting the horse into a nice rhythm over his fences – clumsy, error strewn jumping had been his undoing at Ascot, and with Denis O’Regan now taking over steering duties he has a cracking chance providing O’Regan can eliminate the one danger area and get him popping away over the Railway fences.

However, what really appeared to eke out a big improvement at Fairyhouse was the application of first time blinkers, and it’s no surprise to see wily County Limerick trainer Michael Hourigan re-apply the head gear for this test.

Hourigan, best known for his exploits with multiple Irish Grade 1 winner Beef Or Salmon, is more than capable of getting one ready for a big occasion.

What’s more, the defection of Roll Along means the weights have taken an inevitable rise, leaving Church Island on an acceptable looking 10st 11lb.

Admittedly, Sandown will be a new test to this experienced horse, but as the winner of seven of his 38 races he’s found no problems on testing tracks such as Punchestown, Sandown and Galway, so let’s hope Sandown can also be taken in his stride.

A few showers are forecast for tonight so the likely good ground will be perfect. Back Church Island each way at 12/1 with Paddy Power (despite the frustrating declaration of 15 horses for each way punters).

Of the opposition, Lacdoudal, Oodachee and Kilbeggan Blade all have realistic claims, but the one I really fear is Paul Nicholl’s Hoo La Baloo – the eight year old thrives around Sandown, and having finished third in this 12 months ago now benefits from a 9lb lower mark.

Nicholls has had this race in mind for ages, so I’ll be investing in a win only saver just in case Church Island’s jumping goes to pot.

Later in the day at Haydock I can also pass on a very strong message from camp Noseda for the ultra quick Rublevka Star – this improving filly can leave them chasing shadows and get one on the board for favourite backers at the Lancashire track. Don’t miss out!

Good luck!

Saturday’s bet365 Gold tip (3.10pm Sandown Park):

9 Church Island (each way) @ 12/1 (Paddy Power)

2 Hoo La Baloo (win) @ 11/2 (general)

6.10 Haydock Park:

9 Rublevka Star (win)

Blue is the colour for Hiddink in Next Chelsea Manager Betting

Readers could do worse than have a small bet on popular coach Guus Hiddink remaining at Stamford Bridge beyond the end of this season, despite his protestations to the contrary.

The board, the fans and the players are all desperate for him to remain in the Chelsea dugout regardless of how they fare in the FA
Cup Final and Champions League semi, and sources at the club are suggesting it might not be such a lost cause as we’re being lead to believe.

Anyone who can teach Didier Drogba to stay on his feet is alright in my book and besides, where would you rather spend a winter’s day on training pitch, leafy Cobham or freezing Vladivostock?

Back Hiddink to be the next permanent Chelsea boss at around 8/1 on Betfair.
