As is so often the case, the big, high profile meetings of the weekend are followed by some moderate race meetings up and down the country.
I no longer touch Southwell or Wolverhampton racecourses, so the selections for Tuesday are at Sedgefield and Lingfield only.
There does not appear to be much potential value in the betting market so Tuesday is definitely not a day to invest heavily, if at all.
As I am fond of saying, patience is a virtue when it comes to punting.
Bookies want us to bet in every race, every day.
Don’t do it!
Analysis & Selections
David Pipe is a trainer in decent early season form and his Heath Hunter looks a good thing based on the last time out runner up run at Wincanton. A talented young claiming jockey takes off 6 pounds this day and that should be beneficial in holding off the challenge of Oscar Tanner.
Win Heath Hunter – 2/5
Amir Pasha was 14/1 when winning over course and distance latest. He’ll be nothing like that price to back up that victory but, despite being raised 8 pounds in the handicap, is taken to do just that.
Win Amir Pasha 7/4
Hard to oppose Pendra with AP McCoy in the saddle. Though I expect the bookies price will be a short one.
Win Pendra – 1/6
Leviche tries an artificial surface for the first time but should win this bumper for trainer Alan King. On paper this race looks easier than the heavy turf races in which he has so far finished fourth and third.
Win Leviche – 13/8
That is all for a very ordinary looking day of racing on Tuesday.
I shall be back with selections for racing on Wednesday and, before that, for football matches due to be played on Tuesday and Wednesday.
