Racing Tips – 17th July – ITV Racing
Here are our racing tips for today’s ITV races….
Followed up win in a Newmarket maiden with a fifth-place finish in the Hampton Court at Royal Ascot. Didn’t get the best of runs in that race and open to further improvement here.
Improving stayer, most recently winning the Northumberland Vase last month in comfortable fashion. Favourites chance in this race.
Ran decent races in both the King’s Stand and Wokingham at Royal Ascot last month, despite finding trouble in running in both races. A smaller field should ensure a clear run and a return to winning ways here.
Newbury’s feature race has twenty-two 2-year-olds in a five-furlong sprint. Delmona followed up her debut win with a credible fifth in a listed race at Goodwood. Big step-up again here, but with a high draw may benefit from a clear run.
Taken well to hurdling, winning two of her four races to date. Tom Bellamy retains the ride after a comfortable victory at Cartmel at the end of May.
Won five from seven attempts since moving to L J Morgan’s yard earlier this year, both over hurdles and chases. Reverts to the larger obstacles again here and won’t be far away at the finish.
Consistent sort, with a win and close second (when hampered) last month. Teaming up with regular partner, Sam Twiston-Davies, will be hoping to put the frights up his opponents here.
CURRAGH (IRISH OAKS)
Snowfall cannot be opposed after winning the Epsom Oaks by a staggering 16 lengths, but will be a very short price to take the Irish equivalent. Nicest may well be her nearest challenger after a good third in the Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot, and can take second spot for forecast bettors.
Odds correct at time of writing but may be subject to change.
