UK Horse Racing Tips – 22 September


We have three selections today, with all of them coming at Goodwood.


Tip 1 – 1.45pm Goodwood


Kettle Hill is progressing nicely but I’m not sure that was the strongest race at Sandown last time. The subsequent rise in the weights will also make things tougher. Imrahor was well supported late on his belated seasonal reappearance and ran extremely well. Shaping like the winner for the most of the way, he wandered around late on and possibly got a bit tired.

However, Turn On The Charm who finished behind Imrahor shaped just as well. The price difference between the two looks too big. Turn On The Charm did the best of those who were held up and arguably did as well to finish as close as he did. Imrahor may well strip fitter for that run and uphold the form. Nevertheless, the gap in the market between the two is too big.

Turn On The Charm himself was returning from a short break so could also step forward from that. He’s also reunited with William Buick who was successful on him back in May. The application of a visor could bring out additional improvement. He looks overpriced against the top two in the market.


1.45pm Goodwood – 1pt win Turn On The Charm 6/1 general


Tip 2 – 3.27pm Goodwood


This is a cracking fillies’ handicap featuring a number of upwardly mobile progressive three-year-olds. Many have solid claims and it’s easy to make a case for a number of them. Flower Of Scotland looks of particular interest up in trip once again.

She has been steadily progressive this year and seemed to appreciate the change in tactics when making all at Leicester last time. That was arguably a career best and, despite winning by five lengths, she looks a relentless galloper having had to be stoked up a fair way out.

She tried this trip at Redcar last season but didn’t see it out. This campaign she has looked more grown up and can find further improvement now going beyond 1m4f again. Her dam, Seal Of Approval, would have gone close in the Park Stakes except for clipping heels and falling. Seal Of Approval is a half-sister to Gale Force, a multiple winner over 2m and herself the dam of Hurricane Lane. The family tend to improve with time and age so there’s little reason to think Flower Of Scotland’s progression will grind to a sudden halt.


3.27pm Goodwood – 1pt win Flower Of Scotland 9/2 general (some 11/2 available)


Tip 3 – 4.35pm Goodwood


It is interesting to see the money come for Raasel this morning. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see this one take a big step forward for shrewd connections. The yard couldn’t be in better form too. The price looks about right now and I think the value lies with Four Adaay.

I thought she was undoubtedly the one to take out of the apprentice race at Haydock Park a few weeks ago. Four Adaay impressed with the way she travelled, suggesting she’s still fairly treated. Given the way that race transpired – she was caught alone doing a solo from a low draw – she had little to no chance. That run can be upgraded and returning to a track like Goodwood will suit. The form of the Haydock run looks good on early evidence with the winner – Street Life – bolting up again since and Global Humor winning at Hamilton on Monday. Everything looks in her favour for another big run.


4.45pm Goodwood – 1pt win Four Adaay 7/1 general
