Angus McNae’s top horse racing tips for Sunday

Angus McNae tipped 4-1 winner Mystery Fox last weekend and has four more selections that you can watch live on Racing TV.

1.30 Kempton: Isolate

There are few runners declared at Kempton Park on Sunday and, with just four going to post in this race, Isolate is likely to have a tactical advantage.

He is a useful chaser who is at his best when making the running and he should get his own way out in front here. There are no other pace setters in the race and if they let him establish an early advantage he will be tough to peg back.

He was a decent second at Newton Abbot last time on just his second career start over fences and he is open to some improvement in this sphere.

1.55 Cork: Perfect Attitude

This horse got off the mark over hurdles on his first start in this sphere and won despite looking green.

Not only did he overcomes his lack of experience to win he also had to cope with being badly hampered and severely balked, which caused Davy Russell to make a dramatic recovery.

It was the performance of a potentially useful hurdler and it was expected given the weight of support for him that day. He can only improve for that run and can give the in-form Gordon Elliott another winner.

2.50 Naas: Oodnadatta

This filly comes here in good form and, while she is relatively exposed, there are reasons for thinking that she can gain her second career win here.

Trainer Jessica Harrington remains in good form and this filly put up her best performance of the season when third at Cork last time out.

That effort came in this grade when she was hampered by trying to close off a steady gallop. A strong pace seems assured here and that will be ideal for her given that she is a strong stayer a this one mile trip. At about 6-1 she is worth a play in this competitive event.

4.35 Naas: Rough Diamond

With this horse returning to 6f he is certainly worth supporting despite the competitive nature of this race.

Last time out over 5f he travelled strongly before being briefly outpaced and then finishing strongly. The return to 6f is a big plus and by way of a bonus he has been dropped 1lb by the handicapper after that effort.

It is notable that he was strongly fancied and well-backed last time out and I expect the same here where everything looks to be in place for a big run. He is trading about 7-1 which seems to be very fair.
