With another stacked schedule from across British horse racing on Wednesday afternoon, we are offered a string of noteworthy meetings from the likes of Bath, Lingfield, Uttoxeter, and Wolverhampton.
On that note, for those of you looking to stick on a midweek flutter, we have searched far and wide to find you a couple of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for throughout Wednesday.
14:50 PM – Uttoxeter – Race 5
For our opening Tip of the Day, we take a look at Uttoxeter and the Class 4 attheraces.com Handicap Hurdle. While ESPALION (4/1 with Paddy Power) might open Wednesday’s meeting as a marginal top pick with the bookmakers, HUNTING PERCIVAL should be looking to upset the odds after an impressive return to action last month.
Last seen at this very track on July 23rd when returning from a 189-day break, the five-year-old claimed victory in the Class 4 Final Furlong Podcast Novices’ HURDLE and HUNTING PERCIVAL has shown plenty of promise. While preparations haven’t been ideal since only making his debut back in October, he will be glad to know that jockey Jonathan Burke will once again take the saddle after their victory together last time out.
We’re backing what should be another fruitful afternoon for the Tom Lacey stable at Uttoxeter on Wednesday afternoon.
16:00 PM – Bath – Race 5
For our second Tip of the Day, we turn our attention to Bath and the Class 4 Final Furlong Podcast EBF Fillies’ Handicap. Undoubtedly the standout meeting in Somerset on Wednesday, many are excited to see ROSA GOLD back in action after what was another stunning display last time out at Chepstow on July 17th.
Continuing on what has been a stellar purple patch, the three-year-old is seen as a budding group racer by trainer Rae Guest and has only gone from strength to strength since returning from racing’s enforced break.
Along with claiming victory at Chepstow in the NB Builders Merchants Handicap last month, ROSA GOLD has won each of her last three starts on the bounce and rightfully opens Wednesday’s meeting at Bath as the top pick.
