Todays Racing tips from Bobby James.
Fairyhouse 17:50 Winner
Pats Oscar has to carry top weight in this mares event at Fairyhouse. Grand National winning rider Davy Russell is booked to ride and he was on the horse when she won here earlier in the season. The slightly better ground should be in her favour and she has shown she has the ability to carry weight before.
Newcastle 18:10 Winner
Saeed bin Suroor’s well-bred trained-filly EXTRA MILE was quite impressive on recent reappearance and can follow up her Chelmsford victory despite a 7lb hike in the weights, particularly there are suspicions that she’s better than this Class 4 level.
Newcastle 18:40 Winner
In an open looking contest one could do worse than take a look at SHREWD APPROACH who disappointed on the sand on his only attempt but is by Dawn Approach and that would suggest very strongly a liking for the all weather, definitely worth another chance at the current price.
Newmarket 13:50 Winner
Looks a progressive sort having shown decent form as a two year old towards the back end of the season. A very good third of seventeen in a six furlong nursery at York in October was backed up by beating ten rivals in a soft ground nursery over the same trip at Doncaster in November. Starts his three year old season off just a six lb higher handicap mark and if strengthened up over the winter looks the type to improve and go well under suitable conditions.
