Today's Horse Racing Tips: Game looks some bet at Ripon

There's racing at Ripon this afternoon.
There's racing at Ripon this afternoon.

Yesterday’s selection was a non-runner after Ayr’s meeting was abandoned due to unsafe ground. There are two bets for today’s racing at Ripon and Leopardstown.

Ripon Tip

13:45 – 5f Stray FM Selling Handicap (Class 6)

This is a significant drop in grade for GAMESOME (NAP – 1 point win bet at 9/2), who won a Class 4 handicap at Haydock last time out. He has been raised just 2lbs by the handicapper and will line up in selling company for the first time. His only three starts below Class 5 to date have produced form figures of 221, with that victory coming last summer before he followed up in a higher grade. Of course, he will have top weight to defy today, but this is a race lacking in quality and the selection is taken to outclass his rivals. Earlier in his career, he was deemed good enough to contest a Group 3 race, and he has won off a higher mark. Cian MacRedmond, who claims 7lbs and was aboard at Haydock, keeps the ride. Awsaaf, third on the All-Weather six days ago, rates as the biggest danger ahead of the returning Balata Bay.

Leopardstown Tip

14:00 – 7f Holden Plant Rentals Handicap

This looks a good opportunity for the tough and consistent filly TAKE MY HAND (1 point win bet at 6/1) to gain a deserved second career success after going down by just short head at Galway last week. She lines up off the same handicap mark today but is 3lb ‘well in’ as her rating is set to rise in the coming days. She also has the advantage of a 6lb weight-for-age allowance and will line up off bottom weight; 12lbs below Benedict Roezl. A winner over this course and distance last month, she has also been placed over a mile here, and her versatility should stand her in good stead as she will need to overcome a tricky wide draw. She has run well from the front and when held up, so jockey Shane Cross will have options. Caesar’s Comet completes the shortlist.
