Today's Racing News: Windsor receives stacks of Moore cash for bubbles

Leicester races
Leicester is the focus for today's race of the day action.

There were stacks of winners highlghted in yesterday's column so hopefully more of the same as Daryl Carter navigates Tuesday's excellent racing...

"Three-year-olds have won four of the last five runnings of the 15:50 at Leicester. Ibiza Rocks 2.5 fits the bill and looks like a very well handicapped horse."

Today's racing comes from Catterick, Leicester, and Goodwood this afternoon, while Galway and Windsor keep you company this evening.

Money Talk

Money Talk continues to highlight the Betfair Sportsbook big-money moves to keep you in the loop. This section will now highlight market moves between 1:00 am and 9:00 am.

17:45 Windsor - South Audley - 9/1 into 7/1 (opening show 12/1)

The Gary Moore yard look to fancy the chances of their runner in the 18:45 at Windsor. Pure Bubbles opened up on the Sportsbook at 9/1 last night before being backed into 9/2, and this morning continues to see the money come - now into 10/3. The yard had a similar punt on Champagne Piaff at this venue two weeks ago.

Glorious Goodwood 1280 x 825.png

High draws at Goodwood are only a negative in races over 1m or less. Over trips of nine furlongs to 16 furlongs, they are more profitable to back with a win percentage of 9.9% compared to low drawn runners at 7.7%. Today there are three races run further than 1m.

Jockey Rose Dawes will be out for compensation on Whistledown 7.06/1, who stumbled five yards before the line at Sandown to throw the race away last time. She will look for redemption in the 15:30 at Goodwood for trainer Mick Channon who won the race in 2017.

Trainer Mark Johnston is looking for his third win in four years in the 16:05 Handicap with Themaxwecan 2.9015/8.

Jockey Jim Crowley has just one ride at Goodwood in the finale at 17:07 on board Al Maan 6.511/2 for Shadwell and Sir Michael Stoute.

In the 13:40 at Leicester, Sir Michael Stoute has had a runner in each of the four runnings and has won the contest twice. Ryan Moore rides Ivigilate 3.02/1.

Three-year-olds have won four of the last five runnings of the 15:50 at Leicester. Ibiza Rocks 2.56/4 fits the bill and looks like a very well handicapped horse.

Over at Galway, Aidan O'Brien has a staggering eight wins from the last ten runnings of the 15:55, and he saddles Anchorage 3.02/1.

Race of the day

We head to Leicester for their 15:50 Join RacingTV Today Handicap, where a small field of four runners goes to post but there looks to be a handicap good thing at the top of the market.

Charles Hills looks to have found a grand opening for Ibiza Rocks to get off the mark for the season after bumping into a potentially useful rival on handicap debut at Sandown last time.

He pulled well clear of some hardened handicappers in the process, and a two pounds rise for that run looks lenient by Mr handicapper, especially given the balance of his form to date.

That was just his second start on turf, with the first a win at Newbury as a two-year-old when beating the now 92 rated Siam Fox and the 97 rated Beautiful Bertie.

This handicap mark of 86 should be well within reach on just his second start in a handicap, and connections book Ryan Moore (40% together at Leicester).

He has improved with each run and is open to further progress after just four starts, and he scored on his second outing after a break last season.

Revolutionise looks the biggest danger to Ibiza Rocks after running solid races on turf the last twice and is rated 12 pounds lower on turf than the all-weather for which his best form lies.

He is on a fair mark but looks vulnerable to an improving horse but may follow the above home in this scenario.

Bowman is another who has shown his best form on the all-weather, notably at Lingfield, for which a return to that level would see him tough to beat.

However, despite getting his head in front last time at Carlisle, he has not shown the same zest on turf, and his form is far inferior on balance.

He may get the run of the race in this small field, but even that may not be enough.
