Racing on Friday in the UK and Ireland takes place at Cork, Epsom, Newbury, Newmarket, Thirsk, Tramore and Wolverhampton (AW).

One of our fancies comes at Cork where a Ballydoyle filly can land a Group 3 contest at the Mallow racecourse. She ran well at this level at Chantilly last time out and she can transfer her solid form back to Ireland.

Friday Racing Tips

  • 2.05 Newbury – Bourgeoisie @ 11/4
  • 3.00 Epsom – Count Otto @ 2/1
  • 5.52 Cork – Boogie Woogie @ 2/1

Newbury 2:05 – Bourgeoisie @ 11/4

After finishing midfield on her debut at Newmarket (6f), BOURGEOISIE has taken a big step forward on her last two outings to finish runner-up on both occasions, including a second-place finish over this C&D.

Richard Hannon’s filly came home powerfully at this course on her second career appearance, but she just failed to reel in the leader, going down by a nose. On her latest outing, she stepped up to 7f at Newmarket where she got within a length of the winner at the finish.

The daughter of Siyouni features on the Betfred Betfinder as one of the Most Napped selections today. She should be able to use the experience she now has to break her maiden here in the opener at Newbury.

Epsom 3:00 – Count Otto @ 2/1

COUNT OTTO comes into this 6f sprint contest at Epsom looking to complete a hat-trick. He will have just four rivals to beat as he bids to continue his excellent form on the track for trainer Amanda Perrett.

The eight-year-old scored over this C&D two runs back. The return of a hood helped him settle better in that race. Less than two weeks later, he successfully followed up at Windsor. He kept on well at the finish despite hanging right on occasions in that contest.

The handicapper has put the experienced gelding up 3lb for his most recent success, but it may not be enough to stop him just yet. He scored off a 1lb lower mark than this earlier this year and his turn of foot in the closing stages can win what may turn out to be a tactical encounter.

Cork 5:52 – Boogie Woogie @ 2/1

Naas winner BOOGIE WOOGIE (9/4) featured in the Group 1 Prix Saint-Alary at Longchamp two runs back where she was just three-lengths behind the winner at the highest level.

Aidan O’Brien’s runner then stepped up to this 1m4f distance last time out at Chantilly and she saw out the trip well, finishing second at this level behind an Andre Fabre filly on good ground.

Ryan Moore will have had the choice of the two Ballydoyle fillies in this race and he has opted for the daughter of Dubawi. She can claim just her second career success here by outbattling Library in the closing stages of this 12f contest at Cork.
