Top tipster Andrew Mount has five bets across four races on Tuesday, including a rare 3-pointer at Leicester
TAKEIT EASY – 2.00 Huntingdon
TAKEIT EASY has been off the track since his Fakenham third on New Years’ Day but Pam Sly runners typically go well when fresh. Had we backed the yard’s runners returning from a break of 150 days or longer, we would have won 27 of our 240 bets (11.3%) and made a profit of £133.50 to a £1 level stake at SP. 7o of the beaten horses finished second, third or fourth and Takeit Easy is attractively priced for a small each-way interest. He raced closest to the inside rail than ideal at Fakenham last time and this sometimes-keen sort looks the type to improve for a big field/strong pace scenario on his handicap hurdle debut.
VENTURA DIAMOND – 3.20 Leicester
VENTURA DIAMOND (stall 1 of 4) did best of those to race down the nearside rail when a fine 40-1 sixth of 21 in the Listed Two Year Old Trophy at Redcar last time and can land this conditions contest, despite meeting current favourite Red Fascinator on unfavourable terms. It might seem odd to talk about the draw in a four-runner line-up but she’s perfectly positioned furthest from the stands’ rail where the ground is usually slowest, whereas her main market rival is drawn next to the rail. Kark Burke’s poor recent form is another reason to take on Red Fascinator, with the yard sending out just one winner from 36 runners in the past fortnight.
CONVERTIBLE & FOLLOWTEHSTARS – 7.45 Newcastle
CONVERTIBLE, gelded since we saw him run a respectable fourth at Lingfield on his debut 348 days ago, is also blinkered for the first time – both positive angles where trainer Hugo Palmer is concerned. HIs sire, Helmet, has a great record here at Newcastle and he’s worth chancing to defy the absence.
Progeny of Sea The Stars have a 21 from 52 record at Newcastle (40.4% strike-rate) for a profit of £62.07 to a £1 level stake at SP and I’m going to chance Ivan Furtado’s newcomer FOLLOWTHESTARS to very small stakes. The yard is in good form, sending out a first-rime out 2yo winner at Kempton the other day and going close with a pair of 18-1 shots (beaten by a neck and a short head).
MAYSONG – 8.30 Wolverhampton
Ed Dunlop’s horses are generally ridden from off the pace, making it tough for the trainer to have winners at pace-favouring Chelmsford and Kempton. MAYSONG got going all too late when a respectable sixth from a poor wide draw at Kempton last time and may benefit from the switch to Wolverhampton where the track was favouring his running style last night (his yard had the 18-1 winner of the finale). Progeny of Mayson are profitable to back blind here (+£27.25) and he looks set to encounter a strong pace.
