Plenty of racing today and we have four selections today. One from Salisbury, one at Kempton and two at Ffos Las.
Tip 1 – 4.50pm Salisbury
Our first bet of the day comes in a 1m2f handicap for horses who haven’t won in 2021. The beautifully bred Modestus is currently the favourite and has plausible claims. His opening mark, however, doesn’t look a gift and he will need to improve to take this.
Our fancy is Dual Identity. Narrowly denied over this course and distance in May, on that run he has strong claims. The form of that race is working out very well producing numerous winners since. It is easy to forgive a subsequent disappointing effort at Lingfield on very soft ground as he would prefer a sounder surface.
Dual Identity bounced back to form at Leicester where he did extremely well to make up a large amount of ground. Last turning home, he passed most of his rivals whilst caught out wide to finish third. Time Interval, the winner, made all that day on a track that often favours those who race prominently. That effort from Dual Identity can be marked up.
Returning to a more galloping track today on a sound surface, this looks an ideal opportunity for him to get off the mark and makes considerable appeal at the prices.
4.50pm Salisbury – 2pt win Dual Identity – 5/1
Tip 2 – 5.15 Ffos Las
A small field for this fillies’ handicap and we like the claims of the outsider, Rose Tiara. This filly showed very little in novice company but showed plenty of promise on her handicap debut at Wolverhampton last time.
Slowly away that day, racing in the last group she had no chance against the progressive Kayfast Warrior. Kayfast Warrior was well-treated at the time and has since racked up further victories. That evening at Wolverhampton it proved difficult to make up ground and Rose Tiara, in hindsight, did well to finish as close as she did.
She came extremely wide turning for home when the race was over and only just failed to get up for second. Still appearing to be learning her job and wandering under pressure, she can take another step forward today.
On pedigree, this step up in trip returned to turf should suit and she looks value at the current prices.
5.15pm Ffos Las – 1pt win Rose Tiara – 10/1 (some 11s available)
Tip 3 – 5.50pm Kempton
Life’s A Beach appears to be well fancied and he is the one they all have to beat. However, there is one at a bigger price that makes appeal. Adaayinourlife is not interesting whatsoever on the basis of his two turf runs. He went in to my tracker after his second run at Chelmsford.
Out the back at Chelmsford early on, he was tenderly handled and looked like he had more to give. He ran a solo up the rail in the straight and ran on steadily rather than rapidly in the final furlong and encouragement can be taken from that.
Returned to 7f today on an artificial surface off what looks a workable mark, he can go well at a generous price. There are doubts about him, namely two poor runs either side of that promising Chelmsford effort. If he runs to the level of the Chelmsford run, then an opening mark of 62 is certainly workable.
His trainer has a better record on the all-weather compared to turf, Daniel Muscutt is a jockey upgrade and he has cheekpieces applied for the first time.
5.50pm Kempton – 1pt win Adaayinourlife 8/1 (some 9s available)
Tip 4 – 6.45 Ffos Las
Our final selection comes in the 6.45pm at Ffos Las. Spy Legend, judged on his latest run at Lingfield, looks to have plenty of ability yet and we haven’t seen it all just yet. He could be well treated off a mark of 60.
Kept primarily to soft or heavy ground, I get the impression he will improve markedly for a sounder surface. Going from travelling well in the first mile to looking unbalanced and green on the home bend at Lingfield, he then looked ill at ease under pressure on the very soft ground.
If he does appreciate a sounder surface, I expect him to be bang there. Hopefully he is better than his current mark.
6.45pm Ffos Las – 1pt win Spy Legend 4/1
