Friday’s Horse Racing Tips – 5 Best Bets from Beverly and Chepstow

First up we have a class 6 race the NB Surfacing Handicap over 7f. My selection is the current market favourite IN THE COVE for Richard Hannon and apprentice jockey Thore Hammer Hansen who scored with a victory over C&D here 8 days ago. He stayed on well to finish 3L in-front of Sir Roderic. He has had a penalty added for that success but his jockey has claimed 5lb so the penalty will be manageable and I feel that IN THE COVE will be the one to beat and is the leading contender in this contest. Inner Circle remains on the same mark when he was second of 7 over 7f at Yarmouth (9st 7lbs) and will still remain a threat to the field if he can replicate that form from 13 days ago. Blessed to Empress is now on a career- low mark (9st) and will look to enter calculations as a potential E/W bet.
In the NB Utilities Fillies’ Handicap I like the look of QUEEN OF SILCA who is a course winner here and is currently 3 wins from 6 runs this year. She won here in early July and was a respectable 6th of 12 at Ascot 6 days ago. I feel she has value as an each-way bet currently 4/1 in the market betting and this is an easier race so she is one to watch. Gloweth was highly impressive when winning a 10- runner C&D handicap here 32 days ago with a winning margin of 5L. With that success, she is 11lb higher here, which does cause concern but I feel she will still be involved in some way.
Next up we have the Churchill Tyres A Great British Brand Handicap (Div 1) and I feel BREANSKI, who was a dual 7f winner last year and was impressive when second of 12 in a handicap at Newmarket over 7f is a strong selection for our betting tips. That race was a stronger race than this on paper and with him being on the same mark as last week (9st 7lbs) and having a good draw, I feel he will be hard to beat here. Queen’s Sargent will look to challenge after scoring a good third of 12 in a handicap at Thirsk over 8f 25 days ago. He will look to be involved. Same with Magical Effect after winning a handicap at Thirsk 18 days ago over 7f.
My second last selection is running in the Welcome Back To Racehorse Owners Handicap over 1m 1f 207y and the horse I am tipping is IDEAL CANDY E/W. She is a C&D winner here and ran a brilliant race when second to Zihaam in a handicap over C&D here 24 days ago. It may have been 16 runs since her last victory but I feel she has an excellent chance to place here. Zihaam is in the field who is coming back from that career-best run and should go well again but the only downside is he is drawn in gate 15. Highwaygrey will look to get involved after winning a 12 runner handicap at Pontefract over 10f 32 days ago when staying on well.
Last up we have the NB Civils & Surfacing Ltd Maiden Stakes and a horse I like the look off who was promising on her debut when 4th of 9 at Thirsk last month was NOSTALGICA. The Mark Johnston trained 3- year old may be a little green compared to some of the rivals but she is needing a stiffer test and she has that here and is likely to improve and with Franny Norton on board again who has bags of experience. I feel there will be an improvement from her debut and she can have a say here. She has a good draw and is a low weight so she is one to watch out for. There may be horses with more runs under the belt in the field but I think NOSTALGICA could really make a statement here and surprise a few so I am tipping her. Ones to watch out for are Coltrane, Retrospect and Carausius.
