Today's Horse Racing Tips: Lancaster House to score at the Curragh

Today's racing tips at Thirsk and Curragh.
Today's racing tips at Thirsk and Curragh.

All four of yesterday’s selections ran well to be placed but unfortunately none of them were able to win. Garrus (advised at 9/2) and Almighwar (advised at 5/2) were both beaten by a neck and Wise Words (advised at 10/3) failed by just a head. Yazaman was well beaten in fourth place but there were 16 runners and he was sent off as big as 16/1. I had backed all four to win but it was nice to get some messages off followers who had done the each-way lucky 15!

There are two bets for today’s racing at Thirsk and the Curragh.

Thirsk Tip

11:40 – 5f Chestnut Room @thirskraces Ideal Wedding Venue Handicap (Class 3)

Trainer Richard Fahey has sent out seven winners in the past fortnight and is the leading trainer at Thirsk in the past five years having saddled 35 winners here in that period. He looks to have a decent chance of adding another win courtesy of SELECTED (1 point win bet at 14/1), who was deemed good enough to run in the Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot on just his second career start last season. He finished just 6.75-lengths behind Tactical that day and went on to win his maiden at Ripon in good style, making all over the five-furlong distance. 

He was then placed in all three nursery starts, two of which came in a higher grade, and was sent off as favourite for the last of those runs. Gelded over the winter, Jack Mitchell’s mount looks likely to get a strong pace to aim at and will be doing his best work at the finish. Bedford Flyer and Riffaa Wonder, with whom the selection is weighted to reverse Chester form, complete the shortlist.

Curragh Tip

14:35 – 7f TRI Equestrian Gladness Stakes (Group 3)

This looks to be between the three top rated horses with preference for last year’s winner LANCASTER HOUSE (NAP – 1 point win bet at 9/2). Unraced as a two-year-old, he won his first three career starts – including a Listed race - by a combined distance of over 12-lengths. 

He then made a winning 2020 seasonal reappearance in this race, where he benefitted from the drop back to seven furlongs on decent ground. As a strong traveller with plenty of speed and an ability to stay at least a mile (by Galileo), the seven-furlong trip proved ideal and he made all to score cosily. He had looked slightly vulnerable inside the final furlong but kept on strongly that day to repel Speak In Colours. 

He then went close behind the dual Group 1 winner Romanised before being well beaten in his final two starts. However, one of those came as a 100/1 outsider on Champions Day at Ascot and can easily be forgiven. Aidan O’Brien’s representative will benefit from the drop in class and return to this course and distance.
