With a stacked Monday of British horse racing on the cards from across Britain, we are offered a string of noteworthy meetings from the likes of Ripon, Sandown and Southwell.
On that note, for those of you looking to open the new week with a flutter, we have searched far and wide to find you a couple of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for throughout Monday afternoon.
13:50 PM – Ripon – Race 4
For our opening Tip of the Day, we take a look at an action-packed Monday at Ripon and the Class 1 EBF Ripon Champion Two Yrs Old Trophy Stakes.
While the bookies might also have it too close to call with QUEEN OF RIO (also 7/2 with Ladbrokes), there is no doubt that INTERNATIONALDREAM will be hoping to build off of what was a very impressive display at this very track on August 16th.
Forming what has been an eye-catching partnership with jockey Paddy Mathers who will take the saddle for the fourth time on the bounce at Ripon, the two-year-old was last seen claiming victory in the William Hill Ripon Hornblower Conditions Stakes earlier in the month and is certainly seen as a budding superstar at Richard Fahey’s stable.
15:35 PM – Sandown – Race 2
For our second Tip of the Day, we turn our attention to Sandown and the Hampton Handicap on Monday afternoon.
The only Class 2 meeting to take place in Surrey, ALJADY will be looking to make a return to winning ways after finishing seventh in a 27-horse line-up in the Unibet Stewards’ Cup at Goodwood on August 1st. With the five-year-old appearing to be enjoying a new lease of life since making the swap from Richard Fahey to Robert Cowell back in June, he has now picked up two victories in his four starts since returning from racing’s enforced break.
With one of those wins coming by an almost 12 length buffer in the Visit attheraces.com Handicap at Windsor on July 13th, we’re backing ALJADY to be too strong for the chasing pack on Monday afternoon.
