Expert Steve Mullington gives his daily racing tips, including a NAP, NB and a Longshot. Scroll down now to find out horse racing tips Wednesday 22nd June at Worcester, Salisbury & Carlisle...
Today's NAP (Best Bet)
4.35 Worcester – Appreciate
The Milton Harris-trained Appreciate just keeps on winning his races at the moment and there is no reason not to back him once again here as he bids for a four-timer.
As per usual, Mitchell Bastyan takes the ride and he gets on well with this four-year-old son of Australia, who has risen up the ratings from a mark of 86 to 90 under this jockey.
Lady Malarkey and Nye Bevan are probably his biggest dangers, but we are confident our 888Sport NAP will prevail over this 2m 4f trip.
Today's NB (Next Best)
2.15 Salisbury – Pettochside
Ironically the name of this five furlong sprint race is the “Supporting Inspire Foundation Veterans” and the contest could well be won by an equine veteran in the shape of Pettochside.
The thirteen-year-old still loves the sprinting game and he is yet to finish out of the first three on all of his four starts this term.
He’s certainly due his annual victory and there is every reason to believe he can do it today on what will be his 117th career start.
Another string to his bow here is that he is also a course and distance scorer, which makes him a decent each-way bet in the online horse racing betting market.
2.55 Carlisle – Give It Some Teddy
On the back of two fairly poor efforts so far this season, bookmakers are making Give It Some Teddy a 25/1+ chance for this ultra competitive Carlisle Bell Handicap, but I believe he’s been written off too early and he represents great value.
Tim Easterby’s eight-year-old ran in the consolation event for the Bell last season, so the Yorkshire trainer has clearly had plans to run him in the main event for some time.
A racing weight of just 9st 4lb and the booking of Duran Fentiman are two further reasons to back Give It Some Teddy.
Dangers to our selection include David O’Meara’s Pisanello and Invincibly for Karl Burke.
