The latest news and best bets plus day four of our weekly tipping competition Thursday's best bets, by Tony Paley At Sandown, Debdebdeb (2.30) , who had to play second fiddle to Great Hall when upped to this trip at Haydock, looks the one to be on in the Weatherbys Handicap. The Haydock winner is smart, while the third and fourth have both won since, so the form is rock-solid. Qawaasem (3.05) confirmed the promise of her Newmarket introduction third by returning there for the July Festival and winning what is traditionally an informative maiden. Charlie Hills has a good team of two-year-old fillies and this daughter of Shamardal can improve past her debut conqueror Lamar, who no longer has the edge in experience.

The latest news and best bets plus day three of our weekly tipping competition Wednesday's best bets, by Tony Paley Angelito (4.00) left a rare poor effort when sixth at Redcar firmly behind at Windsor last time, finishing well after a sluggish start to take second. Though up 2lb for that effort at Catterick today, a quicker start could negate that rise and ensure he gets back to winning ways. Sandown's evening meeting is the most interesting of the day and Pearl Spectre (6.55) , who caught the eye in no uncertain terms in a maiden event at Newbury six weeks ago, should land short odds.

The latest news and best bets plus day three of our weekly tipping competition Wednesday's best bets, by Greg Wood There were three scheduled handicaps at at Yarmouth last night with the perfect eight runners for each-way backers and all three ended up with fewer than eight horses going go post, so it was probably hoping for too much for the excellent three-year-old handicap at Sandown this evening to retain its shape. Sure enough, Keep Calm, one of the outsiders, came out of the race half an hour ago and the bookies will now pay only two places, but it remains an intriguing race of its type with several promising sorts from top yards at the head of the market. Four of the remaining seven runners are currently trading at between 3-1 and 4-1 on Betfair, with Mount Tiger, who won a maiden at Wolverhampton in a fast time last month, the narrow favourite. This is a tough race for a handicap debut, however, and Leitrim Pass (8.15) makes more appeal. William Haggas's has not had much go his way in two starts this season, but he remains on a fair mark as a result and is still open to improvement. Any advance on his close third at Doncaster last month, when he just failed to make up enough ground in a slowly-run race, could be enough to get him home in front this evening. Argent Knight (8.45) , who has been improving steadily this season without getting his nose in front, was only fourth at Haydock last time but he struggled to find racing room in the straight and the overall form of the race looks strong. Rain Mac (3.30) is the outsider of the field for his race at Lingfield but he has snippets of form which give him a chance, while Funding Deficit (4.10) has a decent chance in the sprint at Catterick this afternoon. Tipping competition, day three Our winners so far this week: Monday Bold Raider 4-1 Sennockian Star 5-2 Catflap 4-1 Tuesday Tartary 7-2 Niceonemyson 4-1 Sweet Talking Guy 9-4 And our leader is: Rivercity +13.50 who has started the week with two doubles, having picked Tartary and Niceonemysone yesterday. Woodywoody182 (+11.75) is chasing him hard, having had Tartary and Sweet Talking Guy yesterday. Today, we'd like your tips, please, for these races: 4.10 Catterick, 5.00 Lingfield, 8.15 Sandown . This week, our prize is a copy of The History of Bath Racecourse, a smart little book by Jim Beavis on the 200 years of racing in the Somerset city. Among lots of other things, it promises new details on the Francasal ringer scandal which took place 60 years ago this week. As ever, our champion will be the tipster who returns the best profit to notional level stakes of £1 at starting price on our nominated races, of which there will be three each day up until Friday. Non-runners count as losers. If you have not already joined in this week, you can do so today, but you will start on -6.

The latest news and best bets in our daily horse racing blog, plus win a £25 bet from Coral Today's best bets, by Chris Cook The thoughts of the horse racing community this morning are with Brian Toomey, the 24-year-old jockey from Kevin Ryan's yard who suffered serious head injuries in a fall at Perth yesterday. There has been no additional news so far this morning, so we know only that he is being treated in the intensive care unit at Ninewells, Dundee, where a spokeswoman described his injuries as "life-threatening" on arrival last night. An air ambulance arrived at Perth yesterday in time to transport him from the track but paramedics decided instead that he be taken to hospital by road. There was hope at the time that that meant his injuries were not as grievous as first feared but it is not much of a detail to take comfort from. We are told there is unlikely to be an update on his condition for the next 48 hours, so we must simply hope for the best. Frankie Dettori got himself off the cold list last night by riding a maiden winner at Newbury for Richard Hannon. It had been 20 days and 52 rides since his previous winner, which is surely unprecedented for him but not at all unprecedented for jockeys who have to ply their trade as freelances, as he now does. Opportunities will have been scarce. On the other hand, Dettori has often been seen as a confidence jockey who rides like a demon when things are going well but can also string a series of moderate rides together, so it may be that he hasn't been helping himself to some extent over the past three weeks. Either way, he should hopefully have his tail up for the mount on Sri Putra (4.00) at Sandown. This is one of the rides he was given on Oaks day, his first day back after the drugs ban, when he controversially displaced Neil Callan, who had ridden Sri Putra in its previous 13 races over two years. Sri Putra finished last that day, seemingly failing to cope with Epsom at the first attempt. He was also last on his penultimate start, in the Japan Cup, but it is a mistake for the market to have him at 9-1 for today's race, when he drops into Listed class. Though he has often been shown up at the highest class, Sri Putra has won twice at Group Two level, including at York last July, and he has the fast ground today on which he thrives. He has a good record at this track, having won the Solario in 2008 and been second and third in Eclipses. The opposition is high quality for Listed level but Mandour is no certainty to act on such a fast surface, while Afsare, a shorter price than Sri Putra, was behind him at York last summer. Cashpoint (4.35) is a fair bet at 13-2 for the following handicap over the same distance. He scored here last time on his first run since switching stables and remains below his peak rating. The extended mile handicap at Beverley tonight is a partial rerun of a similar race at Hamilton last month, when I was fuming about how unlucky Multilicious was. But, at 12-1, I'm going with El Molino Blanco (8.00) who was also unlucky and finished just behind her. It was her first start of the year and her handicap debut and I bet shrewd Mick Easterby can get more out of her. Coral tipping competition, day five Our winners so far this week: Monday Love Island 6-1 Danehill Flyer 7-2 Cruiser 3-1 Tuesday Young Jackie 6-1 Mandalay King 13-2 Devon Diva 8-1 Wednesday West Leake Hare 5-1 Fesity Lass 4-1 On The Bridge 5-2 Thursday Strobe 16-1 Great Hall 13-2 Balty Boys 9-2 And our leader is: millreef +17.50 ... who had Strobe and Balty Boys, as well as Young Jackie on Monday. For today's thrilling climax, we'd like your tips, please, for these races: 4.00 Sandown, 4.35 Sandown, 8.00 Beverley . GET THOSE TIPS IN EARLY! In the event of a tie at the end of the week, the winner will be the tipster who, from among those tied on the highest score, posted their tips earliest on the final day (TODAY). This week, our prize is a £25 bet from Coral, to mark Saturday's running of the Eclipse at Sandown, a race the bookmaker has backed for decades. As ever, our champion will be the tipster who returns the best profit to notional level stakes of £1 at starting price on our nominated races, of which there will be three each day up until Friday.

The latest news and best bets in our daily horse racing blog, plus win a £25 bet from Coral Today's best bets, by Chris Cook Karl Burke has told the Racing Post that he wants to get a training licence in his own name, having spent a couple of years as the formal assistant to his wife, Elaine. That followed a one-year ban for his passing inside information for reward to a person who had been warned off. I suppose I have no objection, partly because he's served his time, partly because he sounds contrite but mostly because switching the licence into Karl's name is likely to move us closer to the existing reality. It has been laughable to see, in almost every story about Libertarian, all those quotes ascribed to "the trainer's husband, Karl Burke". I was in the paddock before the Irish Derby on Saturday night, a moment as big as any in the history of the Burke stable, as they saddled the fancied Libertarian in the Godolphin colours. It was Karl who stood aside with the colt's jockey, William Buick, as well as Pat Smullen, who rode the Godolphin pacemaker, and talked them through the race at length while Elaine stood and watched, out of earshot. The work of Spigot Lodge stables will require a great team effort and I bet Elaine is a major contributor. But it was her husband who was behaving like the trainer on Saturday and it is not good for a sport's health to be maintaining polite fictions about who's taking the decisions. Perhaps people are worried about a wide draw for West Leake Hare (4.00) in the seven-furlong handicap at Catterick because he's 15-2, despite having won last time and having also won over this course and distance two starts before that. He's only 3lb higher than for his latest win, which still leaves him 10lb short of his peak rating when with Barry and then Charlie Hills. I'm not too worried about the draw, because he can settle in behind and he won from the widest stall of 11 here last month. Another big run should be on the cards. Lucinda Russell might have a good day at Perth, starting with Castlelawn (2.10) at 6-4 in the opening handicap chase, he having won two such races at Hexham in his last two starts. Later, I'm taking a risk at doble-figure odds about Powertakeoff (4.10) , who hasn't shown much in a handful of starts but is handicapped accordingly. There was something more in his penultimate run and he now makes his debut for a low-profile Irish-based trainer whose record in Britain is two wins from seven runs. Powertakeoff wears a hood for the first time, so, all in all, there are going to be plenty of possible explanations if he leaves his previous form behind. The 7lb claiming amateur who rides has had a few wins in Ireland and was second at this track in a 14-runner handicap hurdle, beaten just a length on a 6-1 shot, on his only previous jumps ride in Britain. Coral tipping competition, day three Our winners so far this week: Monday Love Island 6-1 Danehill Flyer 7-2 Cruiser 3-1 Tuesday Young Jackie 6-1 Mandalay King 13-2 Devon Diva 8-1 And our leader is: fatdeano +12.50 who had a handy double with Young Jackie and Mandalay King yesterday, following his pick for Cruiser on day one. Today, we'd like your tips, please, for these races: 4.00 Catterick, 4.10 Perth, 5.20 Worcester . This week, our prize is a £25 bet from Coral, to mark Saturday's running of the Eclipse at Sandown, a race the bookmaker has backed for decades. As ever, our champion will be the tipster who returns the best profit to notional level stakes of £1 at starting price on our nominated races, of which there will be three each day up until Friday.

The latest news and best bets in our daily horse racing blog, plus your chance to win Timeform's Racehorses annual in our tipping competition 11am Injured Telescope pulled out of the Derby Tony Paley: Telescope, the leading British hope for the Derby at Epsom a week on Saturday, is injured and out of the premier Classic. "He has a sore left shin and won't be running," revealed trainer Sir Michael Stoute on Thursday morning. The colt disappointed in a racecourse gallop at Lingfield on Wednesday, in which he was described as only "workmanlike" by the Newmarket handler. Read the full story here . Thursday's best bets, by Greg Wood It will be a surprise if any of the runners in the Listed Height of Fashion Stakes go on to win the Oaks a week tomorrow, although Snow Fairy managed to complete the double three years ago. Trapeze (3.45) seems likely to be better than a handicapper, however, and may set off at a bigger price than she should be this afternoon since she arrives at Goodwood having been beaten off a mark of just 75 last time out. Elik, from the in-form Sir Michael Stoute yard, is the favourite on the back of her fourth place in the Chester Oaks last time out, and while she did not have much luck in running there, it is hard to say she would have put a performance to make her a clear favourite today even with a clear run. Trapeze did not have a clear run last time either, in a handicap over a mile at today's track, and the sixth horse home, Annecdote, has already put up a much-improved performance to win since. Swift Bounty (2.35) ran like a horse with plenty of improvement to come on his seasonal debut at Ascot last time, while George Guru (3.10) can follow up his course-and-distance win last time out. Tipping competition, day four We're continuing our experiment without scores, though we will be keeping you posted as to the leader's identity and score from day to day. The winners so far: Wednesday Salpierre 5-4 Emmuska 7-1 Boston Blue 7-2 Tusday Green Earth 8-1 Monsieur Jamie 8-1 Mad Jazz 5-1 Monday Jack Luey 6-1 Fiftyonefiftyone 9-4 Hoofalong 9-4 And our leader is: chiefhk +15 . . . who has had a winner every day at prices from 6-1 to 8-1, hitting the board yesterday with Emmuska (7-1). Today, we'd like your tips, please, for these races: 3.45 Goodwood, 4.55 Goodwood, 8.40 Sandown . This week's prize is a copy of Racehorses of 2012, the latest annual from the highly respected Timeform organisation, which assesses every horse that ran on the Flat last year and includes a lengthy essay on 80 of the most notable. This year's annual retails at £79, runs to 1,200 pages and was reviewed by Tony Paley here . If you don't win it, you can buy a copy here . You can see a sample of the book here . In the event of a tie at the end of the week, the winner will be the tipster who, from among those tied on the highest score, posted their tips earliest on the final day. We'll persist with last week's scoreless experiment EXCEPT that this time we'll advise of the leading score each morning, so that you all know what sort of total you're aiming at. Then we'll name the winner on Friday evening. Thanks for bearing with us during this experiment, which certainly helps save some time for our hard-pressed team.

22 May 2013 13:06:23 Sport news, comment and results | theguardian.com

The latest news and best bets in our daily horse racing blog, plus your chance to win Timeform's Racehorses annual in our tipping competition Wednesday's best bets, by Tony Paley The official racing is very ordinary fare on Wednesday, not helped by the fact that it's mostly all-weather and jumps racing. Though the cold weather due to set in over the next 24 hours will be a suitable accompaniment. By far the most interesting horse on the track is Telescope who will be completing a racecourse gallop at 1pm at Lingfield ahead of a possible run in the Derby next week, for which he is currently third favourite. Later on in the afternoon at the Surrey course Vertueux (3.30) makes most appeal on the card. He has been campaigned over a variety of staying trips so far this term and though he struggled at a mile and a half at Wolverhampton two starts ago, his run over two miles at Chepstow was much more like it and he could go one better. Tipping competition, day three We're continuing our experiment without scores, though we will be keeping you posted as to the leader's identity and score from day to day. The winners so far: Tuesday Green Earth 8-1 Monsieur Jamie 8-1 Mad Jazz 5-1 Monday Jack Luey 6-1 Fiftyonefiftyone 9-4 Hoofalong 9-4 And our leader is: jakebuckfast +13.25 . . . who was one of yesterday's joint-leaders and improved his position with Green Earth. Today, we'd like your tips, please, for these races: 4.10 Huntingdon, 5.00 Lingfield, 7.30 Kempton . This week's prize is a copy of Racehorses of 2012, the latest annual from the highly respectred Timeform organisation, which assesses every horse that ran on the Flat last year and includes a lengthy essay on 80 of the most notable. This year's annual retails at £79, runs to 1,200 pages and was reviewed by Tony Paley here . If you don't win it, you can buy a copy here . You can see a sample of the book here . In the event of a tie at the end of the week, the winner will be the tipster who, from among those tied on the highest score, posted their tips earliest on the final day. We'll persist with last week's scoreless experiment EXCEPT that this time we'll advise of the leading score each morning, so that you all know what sort of total you're aiming at. Then we'll name the winner on Friday evening. Thanks for bearing with us during this experiment, which certainly helps save some time for our hard-pressed team. As ever, our champion will be the tipster who returns the best profit to notional level stakes of £1 at starting price on our nominated races, of which there will be three each day up until Friday. Non-runners count as losers. If you have not joined in so far this week, you are welcome to do so today, but you will start on -3. For terms and conditions click here . Good luck!

The latest news and best bets in our daily horse racing blog, plus your chance to win Timeform's Racehorses annual in our tipping competition Tuesday's best bets, by Chris Cook Here's a page where I spend too much time. It's the place where you can see any photo-finish print in Britain on the day that it was taken and yesterday I was there three times, trying to work out how various horses had got chinned. Whether it was Union Saint finishing fast but too late at Newton Abbott ("he came within a whisker of pulling it off," said the Racing Post) or Riskit Fora Biscuit getting collared on the line ("her head was coming up at the wrong time"), I couldn't seem to catch a break. I remember David Ashforth writing about a sequence of more than 20 defeats in photo-finishes, during which it became almost reassuring to him to know that, if it was a photo, he'd lost. Let's see if we can leave such calamities behind at Newcastle, where Jupiter Fidius (3.30) is interesting in the mile handicap at around 8-1. He has often run well here and is only 1lb higher than his last winning mark, from last summer. He stayed on respectably over seven furlongs on his reappearance and ran better than fifth of eight would suggest at Musselburgh last time, when he blew his chance with a slow start. First-time blinkers replace cheekpieces, so it appears that connections mean business. Jofranka is currently favourite for the closer and God knows I love an unexposed David Barron runner but I'm not convinced she really wants the going this testing when it appears she can barely stretch her effort to five furlongs on good ground. At 7-2, Gowanharry (6.00) is preferred. A winner over course and distance on soft last year, she beat 16 rivals at Nottingham last time and the third has since won, as has one of the three who dead-heated for fourth. Gowanharry was raised just 4lb and can do it again. Tipping competition, day two We're continuing our experiment without scores, though we will be keeping you posted as to the leader's identity and score from day to day. Yesterday's winners were: Jack Luey 6-1 Fiftyonefiftyone 9-4 Hoofalong 9-4 And our joint-leaders are: mikeysi +7.25 orso +7.25 jakebuckfast +7.25 SilentCartography +7.25 . . . who all had Jack Luey (6-1) plus one or other of the 9-4 shots. Today, we'd like your tips, please, for these races: 4.40 Brighton, 5.50 Nottingham, 8.20 Pontefract . This week's prize is a copy of Racehorses of 2012, the latest annual from the highly respected Timeform organisation, which assesses every horse that ran on the Flat last year and includes a lengthy essay on 80 of the most notable. This year's annual retails at £79, runs to 1,200 pages and was reviewed by Tony Paley here ]. If you don't win it, you can buy a copy here . You can see a sample of the book here .

The best bets and latest news in our daily horse racing blog Wednesday's best bets, by Chris Cook So the overnight rain total at York came to 18mm, almost twice the amount which was at the upper end of their prediction yesterday. Even so, the going is no worse than good to soft, good in places. We'll have to see this afternoon if that is accurate but it gives hope that the Dante may be run on something close to good because the forecast for tomorrow is for drying conditions. As for today, the conditions will be no disadvantage to the Musidora favourite, Liber Nauticus, but I'm frankly suspicious of a filly that we haven't seen for eight months, when her only win came in a Goodwood maiden that is working out just OK. Clearly the vibes are positive for her but that's little enough reason to take odds-on. Woodland Aria (2.45) is much more appealling at 9-2 for the John Gosden yard that has won the last two Musidoras with The Fugue and Joviality. She looked promising in landing a Wolverhampton maiden last month from which the runner-up has since been fourth in the Cheshire Oaks. Elsewhere, Silvery Moon (1.45) is versatile as to ground, has dropped below his last winning mark (from August) and should be better for his reappearance. I like him at 14-1. You can get 5-1 about Mince (3.15) for another big-field race, the Duke of York. I'm surprised she's not favourite over Maarek after the improvement she showed at the end of last year and I hope to see her best effort yet here. The going does not seem to matter much to her. Ladbrokes tipping competition, day three We're continuing our experiment without scores, though we will be keeping you posted as to the leader's identity and score from day to day. The winners so far: Tuesday Toto Skyllachy 5-2 Titch Strider 7-1 Riskier 4-1 Monday Mezzotint 12-1 Jebel Tara 7-2 Guest Of Honour 9-2 And our leader is: moidadem +15 Today, we'd like your tips, please, for these races: 3.15 York, 3.50 York, 5.00 York . This week's prize is a £25 ante-post bet on next month's Derby, kindly offered by Ladbrokes!

The best bets and latest news in our daily horse racing blog Friday's best bet, by Greg Wood Contributer (2.15) has been brought along steadily by Ed Dunlop since his debut in a hot maiden at Newmarket's July meeting last year, and won with something to spare on his three-year-old debut at Newbury last month. A son of High Chaparral, he improved for the step up to 10 furlongs and should have more to come on only his fourth visit to Chester. Tipping competition, day four We're experimenting with a scoreless week in our competition, which started yesterday. The winners so far: Thursday Here Comes When 9-4 Effie B 12-1 Tres Coronas 9-1 Wednesday Banoffee 9-1 Address Unknown 12-1 Forest Edge 12-1 Tuesday To Live 4-1 Jonnie Skull 11-4 Apollo D'Negro 5-2 For today's thrilling climax, we'd like your tips, please, for these races: 3.15 Chester, 3.30 Market Rasen, 3.50 Chester . GET THOSE TIPS IN EARLY! In the event of a tie at the end of the week, the winner will be the tipster who, from among those tied on the highest score, posted their tips earliest on the final day. This week's prize is a copy of 'The Suffragette Derby', a soon-to-be-published hardback by Michael Tanner, telling the story of the 1913 Derby, now almost exactly a century ago, when Emily Davison walked onto the course at Epsom during the race and was knocked down by the King's horse. Tanner, we are told, has "scoured public and private sources . . . to debunk the myths and reveal for the first time the definitive account of what led to the events of that day and how they unfolded". If you don't win, you can buy a copy here . If you go to this page and use the code: 'GUARDIAN', you can buy the book at a discounted price of £14.99, saving £5! This being a short week, we're going to try a scoreless experiment. Since Mr Hayler left the paper in December, the remaining members of the team have been under increased pressure of time and, if we can make this competition work without daily score updates, we'd like to do so. BUT we will provide the identity of the winner by 6pm on Friday, in an effort to compensate for this change. As ever, our champion will be the tipster who returns the best profit to notional level stakes of £1 at starting price on our nominated races, of which there will be four each day up until Friday. Non-runners count as losers. If you have not joined in so far this week, you are welcome to do so today, but you will start on -9. For terms and conditions click here . Good luck!
