Horse Racing Tips: Bernie and Palace have good claims for Monday 18/1 double

One of Alan's selections has been well backed at Wolverhampton this evening

Alan Dudman made a decent profit yesterday with a winning 16/117.00 double landed with two Kelso winners, and he has a pair of tips for Monday's action...

  • Trainer and jockey at Windsor 25% and 50%

  • Handicapper well backed following second at Newcastle

  • Alan Dudman landed 4/15.00 and 7/24.50 winners yesterday

Windsor - 15:20: Back Azahara Palace

It's the two Ws today for the selections, and while not quite Walcott, Weekes and Worrell - the holy trinity of cricket, hopefully Wolverhampton and Windsor can provide some more winners after yesterday's double.

Trainer Hughie Morrison has been doing the column a good turn recently, although not quite Lucinda Russell help proportions, but I am backing his Azahara Palace to bounce back at Windsor today.

I'll admit Windsor isn't one of my best punting tracks but the 3yo has been progressive this season and she's taking on her elders in a more than winnable race.

She finished fifth last time out at Newmarket behind a Godolphin horse rated 91, but form at HQ is a complete lottery these days. They split into two groups in that race and she was still travelling just as well as the winner with a couple of furlongs to go but appeared not to stay.

We also never quite know what the ground is at Newmarket due to the keen watering plans, so I am happy to put a line through that run, even though she acquitted herself reasonably well.

The selection has been going well at Chepstow this season with three wins over 1m, so the theory she didn't stay at Newmarket is miles out. Good ground looks ideal and Hollie Doyle is back on board, and she rode her from the front to win earlier in the season to win.

Morrison hasn't used Doyle much on the turf, but from the four rides thus far, she has a win and a place at 25% and 50%, and the trainer shows a profit to level stakes at Windsor in the last five seasons of +25.84 with all of his runners.

Back Azahara Palace @ 5/16.00

Wolverhampton 20:00: Back Bernie The Bear

Bernie The Bear has been very positive on the Sportsbook backed from 9/25.50 into 5/23.50, and I can understand that as he was a recent selection for the column at Newcastle, when he was beaten into second. Although he was shorter in the betting that day and had been well backed again.

The way he travelled at Newcastle last time, he looked a horse ahead of his lowly mark of 50 and he runs again from the same figure.

He may well have been a bit unlucky in the north east as the time was quicker of the two divisions and he sat closer to the pace than the winner, who had form at 1m so it could have been a case he outstayed Bernie at a stiff track.

I wouldn't give up on Richard Fahey's 3yo at all, and if he cannot win off 50 in a bad race, he will then be jettisoned.

It will be interesting to see if Fahey would consider a drop to 6f and sprinting, as I think he has enough pace for that, but a switch to a sharper 7f tonight at Wolverhampton might work, and he previously had scored over CD.

Back Bernie The Bear @ 5/23.50
