Today’s Horse Racing Preview & Tips, Wednesday 13th July 2016

Angel Can Delight Hammond

Wednesday is full of action, with 5 meetings in the UK and 2 over in Ireland. The first encounter at Catterick is at 2.05 and it’s a 5f sprint for 2-year-olds. Having only been beaten by a length, in the G3 Albany Stakes at Ascot, Queen Kindly will start as a red-hot favourite. With the price being so short and Jamie Spencer likely to test the nerves of punters with yet another hold-up ride, we prefer Angel Meadow at the price. A winner on debut, she clearly wasn’t yet ready for a black-type race when 6th of 7 in the Listed Empress Stakes. Things need to go in her favour, but Mick Hammond’s runner looks the value here, particularly with Callum Shepherd claiming 5lb.

The 3.00 at Lingfield should be a belter, with William Haggas’ Afjaan up against Red Box and Gothic Empire. Afjaan is heavily punished for a win at Wolverhampton, at the end of the 2015 campaign and Gothic Empire didn’t beat a great deal at Yarmouth in all fairness. Red Box got most of the race right, when 2nd in Listed company at Carlisle and should have the edge today.

Thinger May Have Hindon Road Licked

Uttoxeter’s 5.05 is a 2m 4f handicap chase. Thinger Licht has a lot going for him, despite the French gelding suffering 3 consecutive defeats since winning at Fontwell. Today’s trip and ground should be much more to his liking and Hindon Road has been raised a couple of pounds. A close finish is anticipated, with Degooch also getting involved.

Sandown’s evening card features a juvenile contest at 7.05. Punters are likely to be lumping on the unraced runners, in this one, with Fields Of Fortune, Poetic Voice and Harbour Town all arriving with promising pedigrees. Each of this trio may well be looking forward to a more-exciting career than Born To Please, but the Stimulation filly can take advantage of the brace of races she already has behind her and she showed much improvement when 2nd at Windsor last time out.

We’ve Fallen For Cumani’s Inmate

The race of the day is at Yarmouth (6.45), where Spanish Squeeze, Darshini, Demonstration, New Year’s Night, Majeed and Niceofyoutotellme are amongst the runners in a Class 2 1m 2f handicap. Luca Cumani’s Fallen For A Star gets the nod though, having already won twice in contests of a lower grade. The Sea The Stars colt looks able to win races from both the front and rear of the field and can bag a first turf victory, this evening.

There’s racing at Dundalk and also Killarney, where Westerner Lady represents Willie Mullins in the 8.30. The 5-year-old impressed, when beating Grecian Tiger at Cork and looks one for the future. Action is also taking place at Chantilly (France) and Greyville (South Africa).
