With another action-packed weekend of British horse racing on the horizon, Friday offers us a stacked schedule of meetings from the likes of Newmarket, Beverley, Newton Abbot and Ripon.
On that note, for those of you looking to stick on a Friday flutter, we have searched far and wide to find you a couple of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for this week.
13:10 PM – Newmarket – Race 3
For our opening Tip of the Day, we take a look at Newmarket and the Class 4 Newmarket Volunteer Network Handicap on Friday afternoon.
Failing to build off of an eye-catching start when making a return to action last month, AL RUFAA certainly bounced back at Kempton on July 13th. Receiving a string of praise from trainer John Gosden and seen as a budding group racer, the three-year-old marched to the win in the Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Handicap last time out. Romping to the victory over ROMAN MELODY by four and a half lengths, AL RUFAA has won two of his last three starts and is rightfully seen as a standout pick with the bookmakers on Friday.
Elsewhere, also continuing to impress prior to the break and claiming empathic back-to-back wins at Redcar, it could be worth keeping an eye out for GIVE IT SOME TEDDY (9/1 with Bet365) for an each-way shout.
16:10 PM – Beverley – Race 8
For our second Tip of the Day, we turn our attention to Beverley and the penultimate meeting in Yorkshire on Friday afternoon.
Really laying down a marker and shocking many since making a return from racing’s enforced break, BY JOVE finds himself in the midst of what is a real purple patch and will open the ICS Cleaning Handicap looking to make another statement. Last seen at Salisbury on July 11th when marching to the victory in the Class 6 Watch Race Replays At racingtv.com Handicap, trainer Michael Bell has seen his three-year-old now claim back-to-back victories since making a return from racing’s enforced break.
Making a maiden appearance at Beverley on Friday afternoon and among what is a favourable field, BY JOVE and the Bell stable should see their trip to Yorkshire with a golden opportunity.
