Our in-form website tipster is aiming to get the week off to a flying start with his three selections at Redcar, live on Racing TV.
I will certainly be keeping stakes to a minimum at Redcar on Tuesday with the small fields of modest handicappers proving tricky puzzles to solve. I also want to concentrate my efforts on the Ayr Gold Cup meeting which gets under on Thursday, live on Racing TV.
It is my favourite punting meeting of the year and hopefully these three below will run well to get me off to a good start to the week.
Has been running consistently well since he won at Thirsk in June and was not beaten far when sixth last time out.
He has shown regularly that he is capable of winning off a mark in the 70’s, if he gets the breaks, and hopefully the application of headgear enable him to start quicker than he usually does.
If he does break from the stalls well, then he may prove he is better than this grade as he was running off marks in the 80’s not so long ago.
If he can overhaul tough front-runner Major Snugfit then I think this three-year-old can complete the hat-trick here.
He got down to a basement mark before hitting form but has looked to be on the upgrade on his past two starts when successful at Nottingham and Hamilton under Cam Hardie, who is on board again here.
The step up in trip and the cheekpieces being reapplied seems to have brought about improvement and he will hopefully be able to track the pacesetter before pouncing late on, just as he did last time out.
I have probably given this maiden too many chances but he looks likely to have a race run to suit here and might just be able to win, if he is on a going day.
The five-year-old has been running more consistently over hurdles recently, with two decent placed efforts at Cartmel, but has had excuses on a couple of occasions on the flat.
He has a fully-fledged jockey on board this time which will hopefully help, and he can’t get any lower in the weights.
