All three meetings across the UK & Ireland on Wednesday are on the AW - specifically Dundalk and Newcastle, before finishing off with an evening card at Kempton.

Amongst our Wednesday fancies is a potentially well-drawn sprinter representing an in-form Nigel Tinkler in a Class 4 6f handicap at Newcastle.

Wednesday's Racing Tips

  • 17:18 Newcastle - Razeyna @ 11/4
  • 17:50 Newcastle - As If By Chance @ 9/1
  • 18:30 Kempton - Granary Queen @ 17/2

17:18 Newcastle - Razeyna @ 11/4

Razeyna is a horse who found her niche fairly early on in her career, but has had difficulty in finding those conditions again.

Last July, she won a fillies' handicap over 6f at Carlisle, looking like a horse that might end up in the best sprint handicaps like the Ayr Gold Cup and the Wokingham. She has not won since.

The reasons for that are partly down to her looking a little slow for 6f, but often struggling to see out 7f. Her best recent effort came over the longer trip, but that was at Kempton where they race round a bend. It is not much of a stamina test.

A stiff 6f looks to be her ideal and she evidently handles the all-weather given her run at Kempton.

This test over Newcastle's straight 6f might well be just right. On top of that, she is also running in the 0-80 grade, one well short of where she looked to be heading when she won at Carlisle.

With Adam Farragher taking off a handy 3lb, Razeyna is handicapped to strike to say the very least and can deliver another success at the track for William Haggas.

17:50 Newcastle - As If By Chance @ 9/1

It’s often an advantage to be drawn high on the straight track at Newcastle and one that could go well at an each-way sort of price is As If By Chance.

The five-year-old has been as good as ever on turf this year, winning twice and, while things have not gone his way in two runs since his Nottingham success in August, he’s had excuses - meeting trouble in running at Windsor before typically not showing his best form in testing ground at Doncaster when last seen.

He’s yet to get his head in front on the all-weather, but has shown plenty of promise at this venue and a stiff six furlongs is probably his optimum trip.

The yard could hardly be in better form, with the trainer sending out three winners from his last nine runners and with the race likely to be run to suit this hold up performer, he looks capable of outrunning each-way odds.

18:30 Kempton - Granary Queen @ 17/2

Plenty of pace is signed on in the Class 5 7f handicap from Kempton on Wednesday evening.

The presence of two likely pace-setters is a positive regarding the each-way claims of Granary Queen, who pulled hard towards the rear but still reached fourth of 11 in a similar 7f handicap at Wolverhampton earlier this month.

The five-year-old mare by Dragon Pulse is capable of running to a Racing Post Rating of 81 over this course-and-distance.

She registered 74 on that scale at Wolverhampton latest and another step forward, back over this course-and-distance, should put her right in the mix this time.
