Another busy day of racing is in store on Tuesday with afternoon cards Haydock and Leopardstown followed by evening all-weather fare from Chelmsford and Wolverhampton.
Richard Kingscote rode a stunning 9,593-1 four-timer at Haydock on Monday and he’s back at the Merseyside venue this afternoon, where you can enjoy live streaming from all races when logged in to Mansion Bet.
There’s also Group 3 action in Ireland, with Derby and Oaks Trials from 2.00 at Leopardstown.
The team of jockey Kingscote and trainer Tom Dascombe were already potent at Haydock prior to Monday – they are the leading trainer/jockey combo at the venue.
Kingscote’s brilliant four-timer ensures he’s already got a 50 per-cent win-rate at the track in 2020, having finished out of the money just twice so far in eight rides.
Amongst his chances this afternoon is
8/1* shot Brookside Banner in the 7f handicap at 2.15.
The filly was triumphant at the track on debut over 6f in September, a race that has produced four subsequent winners, and can be forgiven a wide-margin defeat at Newmarket next time given she was immediately pitched into Listed company.
She’s back to Merseyside for this seasonal bow and an opening handicap mark of 80, whilst asking a question, may well be within her compass.
Richard Hughes and Shane Kelly are another duo making a bright start after a week of racing and they pitch unbeaten filly Queen Of All into battle at Chelmsford this evening, where she is
9/1 to maintain that perfect record in the Cock Green Fillies’ Handicap at 6.45 over a mile.
Horses to Watch at Chelmsford
The Mukhadram filly was a convincing scorer second time out at Southwell in the spring and is perhaps being underestimated off an opening mark of 76.
Charlie Appleby’s Sacred Dance and the John Gosden-trained Indie Angel are similarly promising sorts, but they’ll be conceding weight this evening and that won’t be easy against a filly that is certain to be racing handily. Queen Of All is fancied for further progress and can maintain winning ways.
Straight after that contest is a fascinating stayers’ event over 1m6f in the Chatham Green Handicap at 7.15.
Clap Your Hands has been in excellent form on the AW circuit and comes here bidding for a five-timer for trainer David Simcock. He heads the betting at
3/1 and is followed by Hugo Palmer’s French Listed winner Collide at
7/2, the mount of Ryan Moore.
15/2 chance, has made fine strides since leaving John Gosden to join Anthony Carson and may not be finished yet.
He is 2-2 over the C&D and was last spotted in January splitting useful rivals in Rainbow Dreamer and Mildenberger over two-miles at Kempton, form that looks strong.
He’s up another 2lb in the ratings but comes back to a track that he loves and will be finishing as well as anything based on previous form, ensuring he’s deemed a fair each-way price in a field of nine.
Leopardstown Racing Preview
Across at Leopardstown, Aidan O’Brien holds a strong hand in the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial Stakes (2.00) and Russian Emperor is a worthy favourite at
Seamie Heffernan’s mount looked to be crying out for a longer trip when he made a winning reappearance at Naas in March and the son of Galileo gets that here. He looks progressive and can reverse his debut defeat behind stablemate and 5/2 chance Iberia now, who sports new blinkers today.
Later on the card, a Listed prize surely awaits Year Of The Tiger in the Holden Plant Rental Trial Stakes at 3.00.
He ran fine races in Group contests last season, including behind 2,000 Guineas hero Kameko in the Vertem Futurity at Newcastle when last spotted, and looks to hold sway over his rivals today, as his odds of
