Today's Horse Racing Tips: Three make appeal

There's racing at Sandown and Leicester on Sunday.
There's racing at Sandown and Leicester on Sunday.

It certainly was a Glorious Goodwood for me with five winners (5/2, 9/1, 12/1, 7/2 and 8/1) and an each-way return at 16/1. Add in last week’s 20/1 winner to signal a much-needed change in luck following a dismal run through much of June and early July.

There are three tips for today’s racing at Sandown and Leicester.

Sandown Tip

13:45 – 7f Oxshott Handicap (Class 5)

COLONEL WHITEHEAD (NAP – 1 point win bet at 11/2) appeared to relish the step up to seven furlongs when winning at this course ten days ago. Despite a tardy start, he made a strong challenge inside the final furlong to score comfortably. A 6lb rise looks fair and regular partner Ellie MacKenzie (claiming 7lbs and on board for all three career wins) takes the ride again. Claudius Secundus, third over the course and distance last time out, and Dutch Story, a dual winner last season, complete the shortlist.

Leicester Tips

17:10 – 5f Follow Us On Twitter @leicesterraces Handicap (Class 6)

The oldest horse in the line up COOL STRUTTER (0.5 point win bet at 15/2) arrives here in good shape having recorded recent form figures of 122. One of those runs came over this course and distance behind Alba Del Sole, but he is weighted to reverse form with that rival.

I’m also taking a chance on BLUE VENTURE (0.5 point win bet at 16/1), who ran well on several occasions as a two-year-old without managing to get her head in front. She has improved with each of her two starts so far this year, has slipped to a mark of 56 and has Group 1-winning jockey Kevin Stott on board for the first time.
