16.15 Ascot

In the 16.15 Harrogate Water Classified Stakes over 1m my nap of the day is AL SALT for the team of William Haggas and Jockey Jim Crowley who recently rode his 2000th winner. A big congratulations to him for that amazing achievement. The 3- year old has won over 1m since the resumption of racing and he ran well in the Glorious Goodwood Handicap last time out, 36 days ago. He is stepping back down in trip to 1m and I feel he has more to come so he is the leading player for me. Marronnier caught the eye last time out at Sandown with Marco Ghiani a fortnight ago over 1m. He will look to progress again with jockey Marco Ghiani claiming 5lbs. I just feel with his form over 1m AL SALT (NAP) will be too good here.


16.35 Thirsk

My next tip is running in the Watch On RacingTV Handicap over 5f that horse being GOWANBUSTER, who’s last win came at Musselburgh back in July. He followed this up with a good 3rd in a handicap at Musselburgh 36 days ago. He is a trailblazer who can be involved here for trainer Susan Corbett and jockey Paul Mulrennan. I am going for him to place here and tipping him EW. Venturous was 6th of 8 at this C&D 26 days ago. He was hampered so a big race could be had for the 7-year-old. Paul Midgley has three runners in this and he will be looking to land this handicap with either Buniann, Pavers Pride or Son and Sannie. Several runners have form here with C&D wins like Abate, Machree and Our little Pony with more included.


17.05 Thirsk

The JW 4×4 Northallerton Handicap over 6f has a field of 20 runners and I am going for MR ORANGE E/W to continue his good run of form. He landed a 6f handicap at Pontefract 21 days ago when staying on well at the end. He has been given a 6lb penalty for that success but remains highly competitive and one to watch for me as he is a previous C&D winner. Buccaneers Vault is another who can go well for Paul Midgley who has the above mentioned MR ORANGE and also has James Watt running. Fendale can go well of a lowered mark. Luxor for Keith Dalgleish has been winless since 2018 but arrives in good form. He’zanarab can be a leading player for Nigel Tinkler who will look to put a below-par 2019 behind him after going close to winning over 5f at Beverley. The Armed Man loves it around here and is a 4 time C&D winner so will look to go well again.


17.30 Sedgefield

My second last tip for Friday’s racing is running in the Sky Sports Racing Virgin 535 Novice’s Hurdle over 2m 3f and I am going with THE BLAME GAME for the team of James Ewart and Champion jockey Brian Hughes. This 6-year-old was narrowly beaten over C&D las week by a head. That run came after 7 months of track and I think has put him in good stead to go one better this time around. Ferry All who was 3rd in the same race looked to have like the increased trip will look to go well again. This will be harder for Lord Springfield who landed his first win last time out at Southwell 47 days ago for trainer Sara Ender. Jockey Nathan Moscrop claims 3lb.


19.50 Kempton

In my last selection of the day in the Try Our New Price Boosts At Unibet Handicap over 6f the horse who will take all the beating is KINGSHOLM for me. This promising 3-year-old has improved with every run and landed a career-best when winning an 11 runner handicap at Wolverhampton 23 days ago over 6f with plenty in hand. He has a 7lb penalty for that success but I feel this may not be enough to stop him following that win up here. Stars In The Night is in great form and can be involved here. Newyorkstateofmind is a course winner and can get involved in the running in.
