Today's Horse Racing Tips: Queen to reign at Redcar

There's Flat racing at Redcar on Monday.
There's Flat racing at Redcar on Monday.

It has been the most bizarre year, and although this is the first day of my summer holidays, it won’t be anything like a holiday. I will be continuing to work over the break in order to make sure school is as safe as possible when children and staff return in September.  

However, I will be taking some time off for Goodwood this week. It is one of the few racing festivals that I can enjoy without the stresses of work, and if you haven’t done so already, check out our latest podcast for previews of some of the big races of the week. 

I am hoping to warm up with a winner and have picked out two bets for today’s racing at Redcar and Windsor.

Redcar Tip

13:40 – 6f Sky Bet Thank You Key Workers Handicap (Class 6)

NORTHERN QUEEN (NAP – 1 point win bet at 13/2) registered her first career victory when successful at Ayr two weeks ago. That win came in first-time cheekpieces, which are retained today, and saw her stay on well at the end of the six-furlong trip. A 2lb rise looks fair for this daughter of Dark Angel, who cost 115,000 Euros as a two-year-old and is a half-sister to a Group 2 winner. Any easing of the ground will be in her favour, she is well drawn in stall 10 and Ben Robinson takes the ride again. Lincoln Red and Harry’s Ridge complete the shortlist.

16:25 – 5f Watch Free Race Replays On Handicap (Class 5)

ZULU ZANDER (1 point win bet at 4/1) has been running consistently well in recent weeks and looks to have been found a good opportunity to win for the fourth time. This David Evans-trained sprinter had twice filled the runner up spot before going close at Chepstow six days ago. He runs off the same handicap mark today and has the additional 7lb claim of jockey Gina Mangan. In all, he has finished in the first three places in five of his eight starts on turf and looks to be improving with each run. The returning Broadhaven Dream rates as the biggest danger.
