Today's Horse Racing Tips: Chris Baker has two bets at Southwell and Pontefract on Sunday

It has been a frustrating week following a decent spell of results. I am hoping to get back on track today with two bets at Southwell and Pontefract. Good luck if you have a bet.

Southwell Tip

14:45 – 6f Firewall Ltd Handicap (Class 4)

Queen Of Kalahari looks a worthy favourite for this sprint handicap given her impressive record at Southwell. Nine previous visits here have resulted in six wins and two seconds, so she is sure to go well again off a fair handicap mark.

However, slight preference is for VELOCISTAR (NAP - 1 point win bet at 13/2), who is turned out quickly following a decent effort at Salisbury three days ago. This daughter of Starspangledbanner has been in fine form on turf and should relish the return to Southwell’s fibresand, where she has recorded finishing positions of 131 from her three runs at the Nottinghamshire track.

This filly looks to have everything in her favour today. As a strong travelling type that likes to lead, she will break from the perfect draw against the rail in stall 1. As the only three-year-old in the line up, she will also have the advantage of a 4lb weight-for-age allowance and will receive weight from all ten of her rivals. The very capable Megan Nicholls rode this horse to victory at Carlisle last month and travels here for just this one ride.

Thrave, another previous winner here, completes the shortlist.

Pontefract Tip

15:10 – 6f EBF Stallions Highfield Farm Flying Fillies’ Stakes (Listed)

A fascinating race that sees Aidan O’Brien send his first runners to Pontefract and Jessica Harrington send over a classy filly dropping in grade and trip. Unfortunately, the withdrawals of two fancied runners, Keep Busy and Happy Romance, means that Valeria Messalina’s price is now a little too short to represent good value. She looks the most likely winner but I am taking an each-way punt on the progressive Hugo Palmer-trained filly LOVELY BREEZE (0.5 point each way bet at 16/1).

Out of a Listed placed mare, she is a half sister to a Group 2 winner and can take this step up in class following a couple of impressive handicap victories in recent months. She readily drew clear of some smart fillies at Goodwood last time out to take her record to three wins and five placed efforts from her ten career starts. Conditions should be ideal at Pontefract and with stamina in her pedigree, she should have no problem handling the uphill finish.

As well as the favourite, Double Or Bubble is feared most.
