Lucky 15 Horse Racing Tips, Saturday 21st July 2018
We have top quality racing action from both sides of the Irish Sea this coming weekend. Our Lucky 15 this week encompasses our best bets from the Newbury and Newmarket cards together with our selection for the Irish Oaks.
Lucky 15 Tip 1: Desert Encounter in the 1:50 at Newbury
If Desert Encounter repeats his latest effort in the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes he would have no chance at all here, even accounting for the drop in class this represents. Beaten out of sight in that contest, something was clearly amiss as he struggled to keep straight before being allowed to coast home.
It seems safe to ignore that run, and if we instead look at his previous outing in the Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Sandown, he looks to have a strong chance here. Conceding 3lbs to the subsequent Prince Of Wales’s Stakes winner, Poet’s Word, he was beaten just 4½l in that Group 3 affair. There doesn’t appear to be anything of that calibre in this Listed event and he looks a solid selection, particularly considering he is the top-rated runner in the field and yet only third in the betting.
Lucky 15 Tip 2: Alwaysandforever in the 2:45 at Newmarket
Just the seven go to post for the Aphrodite Stakes at Newmarket but we nevertheless have a few fascinating contenders on show. John Gosden’s Highgarden looked one for the notebook when scoring on her only start at two, but has thus failed to deliver in her three starts this season. It’s not too late for her yet but the one we like the look of here is the Luca Cumani runner, Alwaysandforever.
This filly looked all over the winner headed into the closing stages of a Listed Class contest over this trip last time out at Pontefract, only to just be run out of it right on the line. That’s still looks like the best recent form on offer though and any improvement squeezed out by the application of a first time visor will likely make her tough to beat.
Lucky 15 Tip 3: Hey Jonesy in the 3:00 at Newbury
Charles Hills Equilateral is an intriguing contender in this. Despite seemingly having his bubble burst last time out in the Commonwealth Cup, he remains a horse of potential for a yard who does well with their sprinters. He’s greatly respected, as is Invincible Army who has solid form in the book but likewise disappointed at Royal Ascot last time. At a bigger price than that duo, the one we like is the Kevin Ryan runner, Hey Jonesy.
This one has some excellent juvenile form in the book, including when fourth to U S Navy Flag in the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes and he ran a screamer last time out in the Commonwealth Cup to go down by just two lengths in what was another top-level event. In rude health – which cant be said for all of his rivals here – he makes plenty of appeal dropping into Group 3 company.
Lucky 15 Tip 4: Magic Wand in the 5:30 at Curragh
In the big one over in Ireland take Aidan O’Brien to come out on top once again. Sea Of Class looks an interesting English raider, whilst it would be no surprise to see Romiyna outrun her big odds for Dermot Weld, however they and the others appear to have it all to do if they are to lower the colours of Magic Wand.
The choice of Ryan Moore ahead of the Epsom Oaks when beaten by stablemate Forever Together – who re-opposes here – she looked to have her excuses that day when appearing to hate both the undulations and the soft ground. Back on a more conventional track and a quick surface last time out she blew the field away in the Ribblesdale Stakes at Ascot. With the ground set to be riding quick again here and a flat track she can gain her Oaks revenge on Forever Together.
