Carlisle Racing Tips: Albegrey the one to beat

Racing at Carlisle
Adam Houghton outlines the Timeform view on Wednesday's card at Carlisle

"That was a career-best effort to win by five lengths and a 5 lb penalty probably won’t be enough to prevent Albegrey from following up..."

Timeform's Adam Houghton highlights a Nap, Next Best and Each-Way selection at Carlisle on Wednesday.

NAP

Carlisle - 15:20 - Back Albegrey

Albegrey returned from nine months off with a convincing victory over this course and distance last week, drawing clear late on having gone through the race with notable ease. That was a career-best effort to win by five lengths and a 5 lb penalty probably won't be enough to prevent Albegrey from following up if arriving in the same sort of form after just nine days off.

NEXT BEST

Carlisle - 16:20 - Back Dream Harder

Dream Harder again shaped well when filling the runner-up spot at York last time and the winner, Kihavah, gave the form a boost when completing the four-timer at Ayr on Saturday. Only 1 lb higher in the weights today, Dream Harder has been a model of consistency since joining the Ian Williams stable and another big run seems assured under Ben Curtis, who is trying to win this race for the third year in a row.

EACH-WAY

Carlisle - 15:50 - Back Vaccine

Vaccine ran another solid race when finishing third on his latest outing at Pontefract, keeping on well with cheekpieces refitted. He still hasn't won a race since making the switch to handicaps, but a BHA mark of 78 is workable judged on the balance of his form and today could be the day for him to finally resume winning ways if ready to go after eight weeks off.
