Today’s Horse Racing Preview & Tips, Thursday 14th July 2016

Nightingale Can Make Connections Sing

Thursday’s 5 UK meetings are at Chepstow, Hamilton, Leicester, Doncaster and Epsom. The 4.15 at Chepstow is a 6f handicap and Nightingale Valley is expected to progress, following a first victory at Windsor last month.

Juveniles contest the 2.00 at Hamilton, over a trip of 5f. Whirl Me Round was very unlucky not to score on debut at Beverley and it will be a shock if the Piccolo gelding doesn’t open his account today. The unraced Wild Acclaim looks the best of the rest, based on pedigree.

Hills’ Runner Doubles Down

The 3.25 at Leicester is a 7f handicap for fillies and Doubly Motivated looks the value here. Charlie Hills’ inmate hasn’t performed well over longer trips but has a 7f win at Lingfield under her belt and can go close in this company.

Races don’t get much more competitive than the 8.10 at Doncaster and Johnny Cavagin, Hidden Treasures, Fuwairt, Brazos and Chookie Royale should all find friends in the market. Slemy is the blog’s pick, being just a couple of pounds higher than when landing a lower-grade race at Musselburgh in June.

Johnston Horse Can Bear Fruit, For Punters

More two-year-olds do battle, in the 7.15 at Epsom and Mark Johnston looks poised to strike here. Bear Valley had to be pushed along in both of his previous outings, but still managed 2nd place in both. Needs to show a little more willingness, but looks to have the tools to do the job.

There are 7 races on the card at Killarney, but the evening meeting at Leopardstown looks more interesting and the Listed Stanerra Stakes (8.30) is the feature race. Joseph O’Brien’s Arya Tara has been outstanding so far, as a 3-year-old and is taken to notch once again.

G1 Action In France

Saint-Cloud is where the big money will be won, in France today. Aidan O’Brien’s Beacon Rock will contest the G1 Juddmonte Grand Prix De Paris. Red Verdon, Ed Dunlop’s charge, will also be a factor.
