Horse Racing Tips Today – Saturday 10th August 2019

2.15 at Ascot– Mandarin to win at 12/1

We look to have a competitive renewal of this middle-distance contest for the older horses, with the field including last season’s 12-length winner of the race, Genetics. The Andrew Balding runner was a little flattered by the winning margin that day, and is perhaps not in quite the same form this time around, but still can’t be ruled out.

Overall we fancy the market may have this race right in making the Ian Williams runner Mandarin the current favourite. Arriving here seeking a hat-trick, he’s up 6lbs for his latest win at Newmarket, but was value for more than the 2½l winning margin that day and is taken to land this under Filip Minarik.

2.50 at Ascot– Nicholas T each way at 10/1

Marcus Tregoning’s Power Of Darkness heads the betting for the mile contest on the card, and may well be up to defying a 3lb rise for his narrow success last time out at Salisbury. The Tregoning yard is without a winner in the past three weeks though, which is just enough to put us off at the prices.

Another runner arriving here right at the top of his game is the hat-trick seeking Nicholas T from the yard of Jim Goldie. Those two recent successes have come at 1m2f, but he is a five-time winner at this trip and, with a strong pace likely, that proven stamina may prove a telling factor in the closing stages. A mark of 96 doesn’t make life easy, but with the excellent Jamie Spencer in the saddle he can at least hit the frame.

3.25 at Ascot – Sapa Inca to win at 11/2

The most solid option in the 1m4f contest for the three year olds looks to be the Mark Johnston filly, Sapa Inca. This three year old by Galileo has been running consistently well all season – never finishing outside the first three in six starts – and again ran a fine race when second over 1m3f at Goodwood last week. Doing all her best work late that day, this step back up in trip ought to suit – as will the forecast rain in the area, with the best effort of her career to date coming when hacking up by 5l on soft ground over this trip at Newbury.

4.00 at Ascot – Kinks each way at 8/1

There are no shortage of interesting contenders in the closing sprint on the card, including William Haggas’s Victory Day. This son of Bated Breath ran a fine race in second at York last time out and remains unexposed on what will be just his second start in handicap company. He has nevertheless gone up 6lbs for not winning and looks short enough.

The value bet in the race to our eyes is the Mick Channon runner Kinks who found himself back in the winner’s enclosure last time out at Newmarket. He only got on top late to prevail by a neck from the re-opposing Pass The Vino that day, and whilst he is 1lb worse off with that rival, he looked to be value for a bit more than the winning margin. Having to sit and suffer in behind before procuring a run, he did really well to pick up and win and may just find this race run to suit. Kinks is a few points bigger than Pass The Vino in the betting market, but probably shouldn’t be and looks a solid each way investment.
