Lots of racing action in store on Tuesday with five meetings taking place across Britain and Ireland.

Amongst them is the evening card on the Flat from Chepstow. They race at the Monmouthshire venue from 17:40-20:40 with seven races, and we've picked out a trio of horses to follow on the evening.

They include Heather Main's former course winner Believe You Me in the evening's opening race. You can find Tuesday's Racing Tips down below. 

Chepstow Racing Tips - Tuesday, May 14

  • 17:40 Chepstow – Believe You Me @ SP 
  • 19:10 Chepstow – Rhubarb @ SP 
  • 19:40 Chepstow – Hiatus @ SP 

17:40 Chepstow – Believe You Me @ SP 

The opener from Wales is the first division of the Tom Jones Live In July Handicap over a mile and former course scorer BELIEVE YOU ME can go well for trainer Heather Main.

The Make Believe filly won here last summer on good to soft ground over 7f, making short work of four rivals on just her second start in a handicap as she came home the best part of four-lengths clear under Ray Dawson.

That wasn't the strongest race and a 6lb rise in the ratings meant she was unable to notch again in three starts later in the year.

She was back from a 163-day break at Doncaster last month and, having raced prominently, appeared to tire late on as if in need of the run.

The cheekpieces return this time and, back off the same mark as when she won here last summer, she can go well for Cieren Fallon.

19:10 Chepstow – Rhubarb @ SP 

Though well beaten in three spring starts since returning to action, a first visit of the year to Chepstow could be just the tonic for Richard Price's mare RHUBARB.

She's done the majority of her racing here, with four wins over course and distance and a hatful of excellent efforts since the most recent of those in July 2022.

She was a winner on the Tapeta at Wolverhampton in December and her effort at Nottingham over the weekend was a step in the right direction.

Tom Marquand has a 21 per-cent strike-rate riding for this yard and his booking boosts the notion that this mare is ready to go well back at this favoured venue.

19:40 Chepstow – Hiatus @ SP

A winner at Southwell on the all-weather in January, HIATUS comes here off the back of a good second at Haydock (6f, soft) last time out.

The Camacho gelding produced a good effort inside the final furlong to challenge for that prize, but was overrun by improving Trilby.

With the word 'soft' still featuring in the going description for this meeting, conditions are favourable for Conrad Allen's four-year-old and he has Jack Gilligan – who rode him to victory at Southwell back in January – returning in the plate now.

They should go well in what seems a wide-open contest, with plenty of the runners needing to prove their overall well-being and winning ability.
