Today’s Horse Racing Preview & Tips, Friday 12th August 2016

Mrs Danvers Can Dish-Out More Pain

Friday’s UK action can be found at Newbury, Newcastle, Nottingham, Catterick and Newmarket. The Listed St Hugh’s Fillies’ Stakes (3.55) is the feature at Newbury. Mrs Danvers comes into this encounter unbeaten in her first 3 outings, the last of which was the rich Weatherbys Super Sprint. She looks capable of making it 4 from 4, although both Rajar and Dainty Dandy are genuine threats.

Newcastle’s 1.30 features just 3 runners and it will be a surprise if Richard Hannon’s Devil’s Bridge doesn’t finally shed his maiden tag. This steady improver lost out by just a head to Thomas Cranmer, at Chester less than a fortnight ago. Punters should recoup some of the money they have lost on the Casamento colt, this afternoon.

Desert Way Looks Hot To Trot

The 4.50 at Nottingham is the 2nd of 2 Class 3 contests and all 5 runners look in with a shout. Ralph Beckett’s Desert Way just about gets the nod, after holding off Mubajal’s strong challenge at Salisbury. Harry Bentley also rode last season’s winner, Sealife.

Jordan Vaughan claims 5lb aboard Karl Burke’s Sir Viktor, in the 6.45 at Catterick. The Sir Prancelot colt won fairly comfortably at Beverley and can follow up, at the expense of Major Jumbo, Dandy Highwayman and Mark Johnston’s Climax.

Another Appleby Juvenile, Set To Bear Fruit

The 6.35 at Newmarket offers a debut to yet another Charlie Appleby colt that has got tongues wagging. Out of Sahraah and sired by Cape Cross, Hamada certainly has a staying pedigree and can notch at the first time of asking under William Buick.

Over in Ireland, there are 7 races at Tramore and the opener is at 5.15. It’s a tricky looking race and an each-way tickle on Sir Jack Yeates looks the best bet. Form over hurdles indicates that Ellmarie Holden’s gelding should readily take to fences.
