Today's Horse Racing Tips: Five bets for 2000 Guineas Day

Today's tips come from Newmarket and Thirsk.
Today's tips come from Newmarket and Thirsk.

April ended on a high with a winning 2-point NAP at Goodwood (Atalanta’s Boy at 3/1) to follow up Thursday’s winner at Chelmsford.

Hopefully the run can continue today with five bets at Newmarket and Thirsk, including two in the 2000 Guineas at 15:40.

Newmarket Tips

13:50 – 1m1f “My Oddsboost” On Betfair Suffolk Stakes (Class 2)

This could be a really good day for trainer Charlie Appleby starting with his beautifully bred BRIGHT MELODY (NAP – 1 point win bet at 4/1), who is a son of Dubawi and out of the Group 1 winning mare Lyric Of Light. Having won on his racecourse debut at Lingfield, he was then placed in Group 3 company and went close in a Listed race last season. He spent the winter in Dubai and won his last start there back in February. That came in good style over today’s nine-furlong trip and he can progress further this season. Bell Rock and Maydanny are next best.

14:25 – 5f Betfair Palace House Stakes (Group 3)

I am a big fan of Garrus and he ran really well in defeat at Newbury last time out. However, slight preference is for another Charlie Appleby-trained four-year-old: LAZULI (1 point win bet at 10/3). Like my selection in the first race, he wintered in Dubai and finished a very good third behind Equilateral in the Dubai Dash. He ended last season with a Group 3 victory at Newbury which followed a Listed success at Sandown earlier in the year. William Buick has been aboard for all nine starts, today’s conditions should be ideal and although he has to carry a 3lb penalty, he is the top-rated runner in the field.

15:40 – 1m Qipco 2000 Guineas Stakes (Group 1)

I was really taken by the performance of MASTER OF THE SEAS (1 point win bet at 8/1) in the Craven Stakes over this course and distance 16 days ago. The winning distance of ¾-length would have been more had he not been short of room at a crucial stage. William Buick was brilliant in the saddle that day and has decided to stay aboard this son of Dubawi despite many thinking he would ride the stable’s One Ruler. This progressive three-year-old colt has less to prove than most other runners and is the one to beat.

At a huge price, I’m also having an each way bet on yet another Appleby-trained runner NAVAL CROWN (0.5 point each way bet at 40/1). He comfortably beat Master Of The Seas in Dubai back in February and was just a neck behind Tactical in the European Free Handicap here a few weeks ago. Those two runs represent a very smart level of form, and he is another that will have no problem with today’s race conditions.

Thirsk Tip

14:40 – 1m Cliff Stud Thirsk Hunt Cup Handicap (Class 2)

This looks to be between the two market leaders with slight preference for the Richard Hannon-trained improver NUGGET (1 point win bet at 11/4). Although he finished third behind Astro King on his seasonal reappearance at Nottingham, he looked unlucky as he was short of room on several occasions in the straight. He bounced back with an impressive victory in the competitive Spring Cup at Newbury last time out. He beat 15 rivals that day and can defy the 5lb rise given to him by the handicapper. This will be his third start of the season and he should now be fully tuned up. Connections will be hoping to win today ahead of his main target at Royal Ascot next month.
