Top tipster Andrew Mount has four bets at Pontefract, Bath, Yarmouth and Kempton on Wednesday. Check out his selections below, along with an excellent new customer offer with Sky Bet, of £30 In Free Bets
QUOTELINE DIRECT – (2.00 Pontefract, 1pt win - 10/1)
Micky Hammond’s QUOTELINE DIRECT usually goes well at this time of year and can be forgiven last month’s Nottingham defeat as he sat too close to the strong early pace in a race run to suit the closers. The booking of good amateur Pat Millman catches the eye and his yard won the latest renewal of this race in 2019.
CELTIC ART – (2.45 Bath, 1pt win - 7/1)
The application of first-time blinkers is a positive angle for the yard of Paul and Oliver Cole, with 15 winners from 75 qualifiers since 2012 for a profit of £67.90 to a £1 level stake at SP. However, CELTIC ART didn’t improve for the headgear at Newmarket last time where he beat only one home when 18-1 for a Class 2 handicap.
He’s been gelded since, dropped 4lb to a mark of 90 and might just be worth chancing to bounce back in this lower grade. This century, runners from the Cole yard who were beaten in first-time blinkers and have the headgear removed for their next start are 22 from 125 (17.6% strike-rate) for a profit of £78.12.
HAVEONEYERSELF – (8.15 Yarmouth, 2pts win - 4/1)
There’s plenty of early pace on offer in this 5f handicap and the race should be run to suit HAVEONEYERSELF who can complete his hat-trick for the bang in-form John Butler yard.
BIRD FOR LIFE – (8.30 Kempton, 2pts win - 16/1)
BIRD FOR LIFE was heavily supported into 11-4 favouritism for a 2m handicap at Wolverhampton last time but the track was favouring early pace and she was left with way too much to do in a steadily-run contest.
The winner and runner-up raced one-two throughout and hers was a good effort in the circumstances. Hopefully, Al Kout will set the pace here and she can pounce late under Ellie MacKenzie.
