Lucky 15

Cracking racing for a Tuesday - with flat action taking place at Gowran, Epsom, Yarmouth and Wolverhampton. Jumping fans are catered for via Southwell, and Tipperary. Two good winners in Friday's L15, showing us a modest profit, and four of Saturday's ITV racing advices returned nicely too.

I've said it before but I really do think this is just about my favourite time of the whole sporting year - football is spectacularly revealing its secrets, dripping with drama at every turn; and racing has emerged from winter's gloomy grip courtesy of Chelters, Aintree and now a turf flat season that cranks up every single day - with the Guineas, Chester Cup and the Dante just waiting to happen, to name but a few. Here's our Lucky 15 tips for Tuesday.

Lucky 15 tips Tuesday

  • 14:10 Epsom - Moon Flight @ 6/1
  • 14:45 Epsom - Chief Little Rock @ 5/4
  • 15:20 Epsom - Silent Film @ 9/2
  • 15:55 Epsom - Vaynor @ 9/1

14:10 Epsom - Moon Flight @ 6/1

Always exciting to be at Epsom, and soon enough it will be for the Betfred Derby meeting. A mouth-watering prospect. This opening race on the card is a Class 3 5f handicap for experienced four-year-old+ horses - and there's quite a few of them! (13 entered).

We're paying four places, and if ever a race was crying out for just such a welcome piece of punting insurance, this is it. Moon Flight makes the considerable trek from East Kilbride for trainer Linda Perratt, and a claimer, Tommy Jakes (5), very familiar with the raider, takes the mount.

He's drawn in the one box, but on the forecast decent ground that hopefully won't be an inconvenience. High numbers racing up the stands' rail can frequently be seen to advantage, but that's often most crucial in softer ground.

He's by a German Derby winner and is incredibly consistent on the all-weather. This is a first turf venture on career start number 15, and it will be fascinating to see how he fares. Having shown form at up to a mile this will feel like a real 'blink-and-you'll-miss-it' job, but perhaps he can come with a late rattle close home.

14:45 Epsom - Chief Little Rock @ 5/4

Not hard to get excited about an Aidan O'Brien three-year-old, ridden by Ryan Moore, at Epsom. A son of the great Galileo, too. Where do I sign?

This is a Listed ten-furlong contest, and Chief Little Rock has 4lb and more in hand on official figures. He's Group-placed, and is in both the Dante and the Derby. If either of those lofty targets are remotely realistic he'll need to be dotting up here, and I fancy he'll make all.

15:20 Epsom - Silent Film @ 9/2

A famous old early-season handicap - the City & Suburban. 1m 2f, a small but select field, and for me a telling jockey booking. Shrewd trainer Ian Williams handles this globe-trotting six-year-old, owned by the hugely successful Mrs Fitri Hay, and Ryan Moore takes the mount.

He's never ridden Silent Film in a race, but among those who have are the likes of Messrs. Dettori, Buick, Doyle (both James and Hollie), Yokoyama, Kirby and Barzalona. He's very well thought-off, unquestionably.

He's not been this far before but we're 'only' talking a furlong more, Epsom is a quick, sharp track, and this ex-Charlie Appleby inmate is a very interesting contender. Lovely race.

15:55 Epsom - Vaynor @ 9/1

Four places e/w - and another Mrs Fitri Hay horse this time in the care of Charlie Hills. Outstanding pro Jim Crowley is in the plate and the owner is also represented by Splendent, another with an obvious-looking chance.

Vaynor gets this mile-and-a-half perfectly well and has a marked preference for decent ground, which I believe is likely, fingers crossed. The five-year-old runs off a mark of 83, having won off 82 at Thirsk in September last.

Charlie's had a couple of winners in the last fortnight and Jim's ridden the horse twice previously. Unlikely that Ryan would maintain the Hay link for this one, as he's riding Champagne Piaff for his Dad Gary.

This is yet another famous old contest, the Great Metropolitan, and like the trainer, jockey Crowley is in fine recent fettle with four winners in the last 14 days.

If you're playing, enjoy what should be a brilliant afternoon's racing. Good luck, take care.

This is an example of a Lucky 15. If you can improve upon my selections (of course you can), then go for it!

The odds can fluctuate between publishing our pieces and race-time. As a guide, a £0.25p each-way Lucky 15 on today's selections, at the prices, and assuming all four won, would return around £470 for your total £7.50 stake.
