Redcar Racecourse

Thursday is a busy day of Flat racing in Britain, with five meetings across the afternoon and evening including the six-race offering from Redcar. The seaside Yorkshire venue races from 13:42-16:27, with testing conditions expected to make the ground 'soft; heavy in places'.

We have selected three horses to follow on the card, including the promising Roberto Caro for new trainer Seb Spencer.

Redcar tips Thursday May 2

  • 14:12 Redcar – Roberto Caro @ 9/2
  • 15:17 Redcar – Brownlee @ 15/2
  • 15:52 Redcar – Never Ending @ 5/2

14:12 Redcar – Roberto Caro @ 9/2

This 7f novice features a pair of previous winners – Diligent Resdev and ROBERTO CARO – as well as the once-raced and promising filly Intertwined for Brian Meehan.

She can improve on her Newbury third 13 days ago and should get closer than the nearly eight-lengths she was beaten there.

The race Diligent Resdev won at Newcastle in November hasn't worked out too well and so Roberto Caro is the choice for Spencer.

The gelded son of Inns Of Court showed promise despite being 40/1 at Windsor (6f, good) in August on his debut last summer for Ollie Sangster. He certainly came forward for that when coasting home in a Kempton novice on the Polytrack in February upped to this trip, easily justifying favouritism under Oisin Murphy.

He can build on that and while the conditions underfoot here will pose a different question, that will be the case for plenty of runners on this card and he is fancied to confirm the promise of that Kempton effort.

15:17 Redcar – Brownlee @ 15/2

The minimum trip of five furlongs awaits the combatants in this handicap, with a field of ten remaining after the withdrawal of Protest Rally.

Topweight Showalong has a decent shout after finishing second at Pontefract on soft ground ten days ago, but Tim Easterby's charge is overlooked in favour of David and Nicola Barron's BROWNLEE.

There is optimism the Bungle Inthejungle gelding will handle conditions underfoot, given he ran well on soft ground at Haydock in his racecourse bow in June 2022, one of only two appearances on turf so far.

He was a five-furlong all-weather winner at Southwell before that year was out, scoring in a handicap off 65, and returns to the grass after a solid enough run at the Nottinghamshire venue last month following a break.

Jason Hart may be able to poach a lead in front here and, on the forecast going, Brownlee could be hard to reel in dropping into Class 6 company for the first time.

15:52 Redcar – Never Ending @ 5/2

NEVER ENDING can make a winning start for new trainer David O'Meara in this 1m2f handicap.

The Cheveley Park-owned daughter of No Nay Never was progressive last season for John and Thady Gosden, winning a Goodwood novice (1m, good to firm) in June after a pleasing start in April at Newmarket. She then landed a Leicester handicap over this trip (soft) in September as she showed her versatility in terms of the ground to take her record to 2-5 on turf.

She was asked a tough question at Newmarket in a Group 3 in October on her final outing last year and has since made the move from Clarehaven to join this handler.

There may be more to come and the ability to handle conditions is a major asset that puts her ahead of likely market rivals No Surrender and Hopeful for now.
