Today's Racing News: Gold goes to Beverley in the pick of Tuesday's meetings

Beverley racecourse
Beverley hosts the day's feature action with an eight race card meeting.

It's Tuesday, and Daryl Carter is here to talk you through the day's racing, highlighting those market movers, marking your card and looks to Beverley to claim some cash.

"Two of his remaining four rivals return from long absences, and the other two look out of their depth so he would get a strong vote of confidence, all be it one of the more apparent selections you will see on this column."

Today's racing action comes from Bath, Beverley, Downpatrick, Killarney, Brighton and Southwell.

It's worth watching the market in Bath's opener at 13:00. Trainer Tony Carrol has won the race twice in the last three years, with both horses well supported into favouritism. He has two entries, Winnetka 13/2 and course winner Under Curfew 4/1, searching for a third successive win.

On the same card, there are six-course winners competing in the 15:05. The Daley Express, Michaels Choice, Gilt Edge, Centurion Song, The Cruising Lord and Sarah's Verse - the latter two both hold 100% records.

Mark Johnston will look for back to back wins in the 15:15 at Beverley with the progressive Golden Flame, a race he won last year with Rochester House, and his three-year-old will receive 17lbs in weight allowance from the field.

On the same card in the 14:45 Racing TV EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes, Jazzy Princess is the biggest class dropper of the day after contesting the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot last time.

At Brighton in the 19:05, jockey Hollie Doyle will team up with trainer Mark Johnston for just the ninth time onboard class dropper Wotton Creek who once finished behind Saffron Beach and ahead of Primo Bacio in a hot Maiden at Newmarket.

Favourites fancied across the Irish Sea

A horse has never won Downpatrick's 13:55 Plus2Print Remembering Tony Oakes MBE Hurdle priced bigger than 7/2, with favourites scoring in five of the last ten.

It's the same story across much of the card, with short-priced horses coming to the fore.

Trainer Noel Kelly is looking for a third successive win in the 16:30 Victoria du Monde.ie For Connoisseurs Of Interior Spaces Handicap Hurdle. He has two entries, including the 2019 winner Canadian Steel 40/1.

17:05 Great Outdoors INH Flat Race has been won by trainer Gordon Elliot with the assistance of jockey Jamie Codd for the last two years and he has won the race five times in the last seven years.

Today "interim" trainer for the yard, Mrs Denise Foster, saddles 9/1 shot Gris Majeur and has booked Jamie Codd for the ride.

At Killarney in the 16:20 Cheltenham Festival and Grade 1 winning Juvenile Jeff Kidder will run off a flat handicap mark of just 65.

Back Flame to grab gold

Not usually my sort of price, but it's very hard to get away from the claims of Golden Flame in the 15:15 135th Year Of The Watt Memorial Handicap at Beverley after a creditable run in the Group 2 Queens Vase at Royal Ascot last time.

This is a big drop in grade. He has a progressive profile, and he represents last years winning trainer.

The track, trip and ground are all no issue, and the huge 17lbs in weight he receives from his main market rival Ben Lilly is a big factor.

Two of his remaining four rivals return from long absences, and the other two look out of their depth so he would get a strong vote of confidence, all be it one of the more apparent selections you will see on this column.

Timeform dancing down to Brighton

Race of the day

We take a closer look at Beverley's 15:45 Dr Eddie Moll Handicap, a class five-event that looks like one of the more competitive races of the day.

Proud Archi has been frustrating to back for punters, including last time at his favourite track Thirsk when he had very little excuse, to be honest (I was a heavy backer).

He has become remarkably consistent and goes well at this track and should be in the mix at the business end after giving Ugo Gregory the first run when touched off here on his penultimate start. The draw could have been kinder, but he is a major player in the first time visor.

John Clare takes a slight drop back in trip after running with credit the last twice. He was denied a clear run at Wetherby on his penultimate start and then improved at Windsor last time.

He is weighted to go close if backing that effort up and looks like one of the likelier contenders, but trust has become something he needs to earn.

Ugo Gregory heads the market but has only held his form rather than improve since scoring here the last twice.

He is relatively unexposed at this level over this trip and has been granted the plum draw - all reasons to give him every chance.

He isn't one to have maximum faith in for a sizable bet and is better described as a solid contender rather than an improving one.

Stat of the day

38.9% Clive Cox with his two-year-olds first time out at Bath from his last 50 runners. 13:30 Shimmering Sky.

Two weeks to go

Glorious Goodwood is just two weeks away, and the ante-post markets are already starting to heat up.

The Sussex Stakes, won by some of racings greats, including the mighty Frankel, could see older horses clash with the classic generation.

Palace Pier 11/10 heads the market with Poetic Flare 15/8, St Mark's Basilica 6/1 and Snow Lantern 8/1, all possibly clashing.

Final Word

It looks like a tricky day punting up and down the country today, so worth treading carefully as there will probably be better opportunities later in the week.

It's difficult to write with enthusiasm in this section after the England result at the weekend, but worse things are happening globally, and perspective is everything - worth remembering when punting also.

Until tomorrow, be lucky.
