NewmarketDaryl Carter delivers another quartet of tips for Wednesday, with a trio of runners at Newmarket and a selection at Cheltenham, as he looks to continue the good form. Check out his tips below and join Sportnation and claim up to £50 in free bets!


GOING PLACES - (1.50 Newmarket, 1pt win - 10/3)

With the stalls switching to the far side today it remains to be seen how the draw bias will play out but GOING PLACES looks a progressive horse to keep on side for Archie Watson and the drop back in trip looks a good move for his speedy five-year-old. He has looked as though his stamina has been stretched by 7f the last twice and there is every chance that his defeat at Kempton came too soon after his seasonal return after more than a year off the track. The form of his latest Lingfield win has received a major boost by the runner-up and an RPR of 100 suggests there is more to come. He is quick out of the stalls and has shown plenty of early dash for this drop back to a stiff 6f and he has course experience from his Novice debut run in a good field here last July. There is every chance there is more to come so he gets the vote.

MARIES DIAMOND - (3.00 Newmarket, 1pt win - 6/1)

This is a tricky race but MARIES DIAMOND could hold the tactical advantage as the sole front runner and his best efforts have come when fresh and at this Newmarket track recording his highest RPR of 115 in a Listed contest last term. This is a better race than that one but Global Giant has proven to be in and out and hasn’t been at his best here at Newmarket in previous visits. My Oberon’s form dipped towards the back end of last season and looked unbalanced here on debut. San Donato has some excellent form claims when fresh but his best efforts have come on a flat track while Solid Stone and Forest Of Dean will need a good jolt of improvement.

MOHAAFETH - (4.45 Newmarket, 1pt win - 5/2)

MOHAAFETH impressed in the way he saw off his rivals at Lingfield on seasonal return and this Dante and Derby entry will surely leave this opening handicap mark of 85 behind him now race fit on the basis of that time figure. He has the advantage of having had a run over many of his rivals today including his main danger Act Of Wisdom who will likely improve for his first outing of the season.

ELHAM VALLEY - (5.00 Cheltenham, 2.5pts win - 11/4)

There is a slight concern that my old friend French Crusader could run a screamer under a 10lb claimer after 500 odd days off the track for Nicky Henderson and scupper our chances with ELHAM VALLEY so it may be wise to have a small each way saver on him. However, the selection has progressed extremely well this season starting out with a good time figure performance at Sandown in which the form has been boosted by the runner-up Hudson De Grugy who is now rated 130 and the fourth Paros who by some miracle is rated 135 (completely ignore that rating!). He made a bad error when coming to make his challenge at Chepstow in the home straight which almost unseated his rider to put pay to his chances there and then failed to give his running at Haydock after running too keenly after a wind op in the first time tongue-tie. He ran a blinder at Cheltenham in the Boodles Juvenile Handicap next time out here at Cheltenham to finish third off a 3lb lower mark and the form of that race is already starting to work out with the winner boosting the form next time and now rated 137. The eighth went within a short head of winning next time in Ireland and is now rated 132 (Irish), the ninth won next time out and is rated 130 and the form looks as though it is strong for such a contest. He flew at the finish to only be beaten 2 ½ lengths by two potentially Graded class horses and although 3lb higher here Liam Harrison claims 7lbs to effectively allow him to run off a 4lb lower mark. That was a career best time figure and RPR and off a handicap mark effectively off 120 he is one of the few in Britain that look some way ahead of the handicapper so gets the vote to overthrow his elders in receipts of plenty of weight.
