Jumps racing takes centre stage across the UK and Ireland on Wednesday, with three meetings scheduled to take place before a competitive eight-race all-weather fixture completes the day’s action.

First off is Doncaster, which is swiftly followed by Punchestown and Ludlow, before Kempton’s all-weather meeting takes us into the evening.

Amongst our Wednesday fancies is one for trainer Alan King who is lightly raced over fences and should be capable of getting off the mark sooner rather than later.

Wednesday Racing Tips

  • 15:05 Doncaster - Betterforeveryone @ 5/2
  • 17:15 Ludlow - Canty Bay @ 3/1
  • 19:30 Kempton - Suffrajet @ 13/2

15:05 Doncaster - Betterforeveryone @ 5/2

A winner off a 4lb higher mark over hurdles, it shouldn’t be long before Alan King’s Betterforeveryone gets off the mark over the larger obstacles.

The seven-year-old son of Cokoriko is very lightly raced still and managed to win one of his six starts over hurdles. That victory came on handicap debut at Bangor in October 2022 and he kept on well to win over 2m7f, despite a lack of fluency over the last couple of flights.

Winning off a mark of 109 that day, he should be very competitive off his current chase mark of 105. He was a good second here over 3m2f last time out and the shorter trip is unlikely to be an issue.

There’s plenty to like about his pedigree and he should be capable of winning more races in this sort of grade. It’s unlikely that he’s fully exposed yet and the best could be yet to come. The drop into 0-110 company may help and he has every chance of gaining a first victory over fences here.

17:15 Ludlow - Canty Bay @ 3/1

Emma Lavelle’s Canty Bay showed significant improvement from his first couple of starts over hurdles to win well at Taunton on his seasonal debut.

The form of that victory has been boosted as the second and fourth have both won since, albeit in low grade races.

He was travelling well enough when falling at the second last at Warwick next time and he undoubtedly would have been in the mix there.

It was a fair effort when third in a very competitive race on handicap debut at Lingfield last time out. The winner is a decent prospect and it’s fair to say that this race is easier.

This is an excellent opportunity to return to winning ways and he’s entitled to continue progressing in handicap company. One of the least exposed runners in the field, he’s unlikely to be far away at the business end of the race.

19:30 Kempton - Suffrajet @ 13/2

Suffrajet could be one to look out for at Kempton in the evening as Charlie Johnston’s mare is well placed for a return to the winner’s enclosure, competing in a handicap over 1m3f in the hands of Joe Fanning.

The daughter of Golden Horn returned after a 314-day absence over course and distance in December and put in a fine performance to win off a 1lb lower mark. This specific 1m3f trip here at Kempton clearly suits and she should go close once again.

It was a decent enough performance when fourth behind an impressive winner here over 1m4f last time out. Fading in the final furlong after making most of the running, she would perhaps be better suited to being ridden with more restraint.

One particularly positive consequence of that performance is that the handicapper has dropped her mark by a pound. She’s entitled to be very competitive here and anything other than a huge run would be disappointing.
