12.00pm Ripon

My first tip is running in the 12.00 at Ripon in the Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Fillies’ Novice Auction Stakes and my tip is the current market favourite BRAZEN BELLE trained by David O’Meara and ridden by Daniel (Danny) Tudhope. The horse is a promising one when winning at Beverley on debut 27 days ago. She has a 7lb penalty and is stepping up in trip. The trip of an extra furlong should go in her favour and she is still the one to beat here. Sandhoe at 20/1 is a good E/W shout as she is capable of better things after her first two races and she will put these two runs to her advantage against this field.


1.30pm Bellewstown

Next up we have the 13.30 race at Bellewstown and my tip in the Hibernia Steel Products Ltd Mares Maiden Hurdle is SHE TOPS THE LOT trained by Henry de Bromhead and ridden by Rachael Blackmore who has had two runs and placed in one when 2nd of 14 in a novice hurdle at Roscommon. With being in excellent hands you should she her improve here. Trevena, who performed well in some winter maiden hurdles what would off been a better standard than the field here on paper. Champagne Diva is another who is a maiden runner in 5 races and has had 1 place when last seen 9 days ago coming 2nd of 14 behind Aprils Joy at Kilbeggan.


2.40pm Stratford

My third selection on today’s racing tips is running in the 14.20 at Stratford is the Paul Nicholls trained NINEOHTWOONEOH with Harry Cobden on board. He is carrying 7lb penalty today after winning over 2m 4f at Southwell when last seen 7 days ago, he was a winner by 10L and he will be the one to watch and I feel he stands a good chance of overcoming the penalty. Simply Loveleh is a winner of two hurdle races at 2m and 2m 4f but has gone off the boil since. She is making her chase debut here, Lough Har ran a cracking race on his chase debut at Doncaster over 2m 3f in January. He is a chaser and is one to watch in the betting. Lantiern is one to also watch in the market betting as he is a winner of a hurdle race and two NH flat races at 2m, he is wearing a tongue-tie for the first time.


6.55pm Gowran Park

My second last pick is running in the 18.55 at Gowran Park Supporting The Irish Jockey Fund Handicap (45-65) (Div 1) The horse I am tipping is KEEP BELIEVING (NAP) who is a C&D winner here. He was 6th of 14 in a handicap at Fairyhouse 13 days ago. He should have finished higher but was hampered that day. He is being upped in trip again but he is the type who can improve. Clueless Hill is another to watch who ran well at Tipperary when 3rd of 13 over 1m 19 days ago and is carrying 1lb more so he will have a chance to challenge. Newgirlintown has won 2 races from 4 runs this year. He is carrying 9st 9lb for these successes so he is 6lb higher here than when last seen 3 days ago but he should run another big race.


7.40pm Newbury

My last selection is running in the 19.40 at Newbury in the Oakley Coachbuilders Super Sport Novice Stakes (Div 2). The horse in question is the newcomer who has a bit of talk surrounding them and who cost a whopping 3,500,000 guineas. DARAIN, who is brother is Too Darn Hot, Lah Ti Dar and to So Mi Dar who made winning debuts for John Gosden and the expectations will be high for this debutant to follow in their footsteps. He is my tip for this race. Devine Consent is another debutant who takes to the field tomorrow for trainer William Haggas and jockey James Doyle who will be one to watch in the market and the future also. Annie De Vega, who was third on her debut is stepping up in trip by 2 furlong after running a good 3rd at Nottingham last October. But for me the interest around DARAIN and his pedigree is why I am tipping him as my NB.
