Horse Racing: Lingfield, Southwell, Leicester and
Steepledowns races reviews
Below are the U.K. horse racing tracks with
events for Tuesday, May 22nd, including reviews of the first
race for each track.
Horse Racing: The first race is scheduled for 2:10. Best
odds for the race are guaranteed at the British online bookmaker
Bet365 (opens in new window),
and they offer betting on all tracks below.
Review: We will side with Treetops Hotel in a modest opener, and
he is selected ahead of Moon Emperor and Gaelic Roulette. From a
falling mark, Moon Emperor cannot be ruled out, while a
four-pounds rise for his Kempton win should still see Gaelic
Roulette competitive. Treetops Hotel is another that has been
given a fair chance by the handicapper based on his best 2006
form, and Bobsleigh could certainly be given a shout based on
his best form of the last couple of years if he consents to put
his best foot forward.
Southwell Races: The first event at
Southwell starts 2:30.
First race review: This is a wide open start to the card and the
pin has come down on the side of Billy Red, Diminuto and
Mickleberry may provide most danger. The selection has put in
two solid efforts this season on the turf and could be spot on
for this. He has gone well on his three all-weather runs to date
and having dropped a couple of pounds he does look on a decent
mark. Mickleberry was a solid, if modest performer last season
and should be all the better for a recent spin around
Leicester horse races: The racing
starts at 6:00 at Leicester.
Opener review: Dome Rock is bred to be a winner as a
two-year-old and can make a winning debut today at the main
expense of Brassini and fellow newcomers Mazzanti and Hatta
Fort. Luca Cumani has his stable in good form and with this his
first two-year-old of the season, he could make a winning start.
His sire won over this trip in his first year racing and with
the last two winners of this race coming from a low draw, stall
five could be advantageous. Brassini has run two good races so
far but the feeling is that he may just need an extra furlong
before he can score, so the newcomers Hatta Fort and Western Art
look very much of interest.
Steepledowns: First race starts at
12:14. Last one at 9:16.
