ITV Racing Tips: Most tipped selections for the Irish 1000 Guineas and action from the Sunday Series at York
Its Classic day in Ireland as we feature the best tips for the 1000 Guineas at the Curragh races on Sunday whilst the ITV cameras are also at York for the second Sunday Series of the flat season.
Let's start with the big race of the day and that is the Irish 1000 Guineas from the Curragh at 15:45.
Favourite for the race is the Aidan O'Brien trained Tuesday who was third in the English 1000 Guineas at the start of the month and it's the filly who has attracted most of the attention from the tipsters featured on Horseracing.net.
With six tips in total, Tuesday has been napped by five tipsters including the Liverpool Echo, Yorkshire Evening Post and the Sun On Sunday.
As stated, she was beaten two lengths when finishing third at Newmarket and the winner Catchet has since finished second in the French 1000 Guineas franks the form here.
Also tipped up in the race at bigger prices include Agartha for Aidan's son Joseph (12/1) and Aidan's second string Concert Hall (also 12/1).
The Dermot Weld trained Homeless Songs is the market rival to the favourite however, she quickened smartly to beat Agartha over seven furlongs at Leopardstown and is up in trip here. She's the Racing Post Spotlight selection in the race.
There are seven races televised live on ITV4 on Sunday from York races and we've highlighted the most tipped in each.
Starting off in the 15:30 Apprentice Handicap, it's a really open affair with White Willow getting the not thanks to four tips. The four year old has had only five starts and retains potential after a battling 1m4f win at Thirsk last time out and has attracted the attention of tipsters Jason Heavey of the Star and The Scout of the Daily Express. He's the highest Racing Post rating in the field and has been napped up by Matt Polley of the Ipswich Star. Readily available at 6/1 with bookies offering six places.
In the 16:00 Novice Stakes, Walbank trained by David Loughnane gets the nod here and is banker material at 2/5 favourite. The two year old sets the standard here and has been tipped up by 12 tipsters in the race.
The 16:35 Dash Handicap poses more a puzzle for punters with 22 runners set to go to post. The nod here goes to the George Boughey trained Al Ameen at 8/1 with Bet365 paying down to six places. The three year old flew home from a poor position at Ascot on his turf debut and has some races in him off this mark. Rob Wright of the Times and Marlborough of the Telegraph make him their selection with the latter making him their nap of the meeting.
There's another big field in the Mile Handicap at 17:05 which looks really competitive. Four year old Harswell Duke trained by Roger Fell is the pick of six tipsters featured on the site. The top Racing Post Rating in the race has been tipped up by the Star, Time and Express plus he's the Racing Post Spotlight selection and napped up by top tipster Andrew Mount for the Racing and Football Outlook. Lightly races, he was third behind two of these at Hamilton the last day and he may well have won with a clear run. Clearly fancied by some judges here. 9/1 with Boyles paying six places.
This Sunday Series initiative has attracted some big fields and we have another (22) in the Sprint Handicap at 17:35 run over six furlongs. Favourite Dakota Gold has attracted the attention of six tipsters but there's one down the list who has been napped up by top tipster Paul Kealy of the Racing Post. Barbill trained by Mark Loughnane was regressive last year but his mark has fallen and his reappearance catches the eye here for a new stable. As short as 12/1. he's double that price at Betfair 25/1 paying six places.
The penultimate race of the day is the Stayers Handicap at 18:05 and most tipped here is second favourite Super Superjack for trainer Milton Harris. The five year old has won five of his last nine races, scoring with some authority over two miles at Goodwood and Ascot this season. Alex Hammond of Sky Sports Racing makes him her nap of the meeting whilst the Star and Templegate of the Sun have also napped up this 5/1 chance with Bet365.
Finally, Ed Walker's Random Harvest is the selection with most tips in the Fillies' Handicap at 18:40. She had a near miss on soft ground at Haydock recently and is open to improvement here. The Mirror, Sun, Times and Lambourn of the Racing Post have all tipped her up here with Sportinglife making her their nap of the meeting. Paddy Power go best price 10/3 about the four year old and Richard Kingscote takes the ride.
Good luck if you're backing.
