Plenty of midweek racing action in store, with Royal Ascot joined by a further four UK meetings on Wednesday. Among them is the evening offering from Ripon, with six races from 18:00-20:35 at Yorkshire's Garden venue.

I've come up with a few Ripon tips - including Coeur Jane for trainer David O'Meara in the opening contest - for you to mull over.

Ripon Tips

  • 18:00 – Coeur Jane @ 6/4
  • 19:35 – Moyola @ 7/2
  • 20:35 – Sassy Soprano @ 11/1

18:00 – Coeur Jane @ 6/4

The opening Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate Maiden Fillies' Stakes can go the way of David O'Meara's COEUR JANE, who shaped with plenty of promise in her debut at Nottingham (5f, good to firm) at the start of month.

The Mehmas filly was away alertly in that maiden and was always up on the speed, duelling for the lead with eventual winner Leovanni in the process. 

Karl Burke's charge ultimately went clear to win and is headed for the Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot earlier on Wednesday afternoon with a lively chance. 

Coeur Jane was probably softened up a little by that early sparring and dropped into third very late on behind Sunshine Soul, clear of the rest. 

She should improve for that experience and put it to good use now by getting on the scoresheet at the second time of asking.

19:35 – Moyola @ 7/2

Lucinda Russell's MOYOLA had already served notice of an impending success with good runs at Catterick and Haydock prior to opening his account at Hamilton (6f, good to firm) in the hands of Oisin Orr a week ago. 

The Adaay gelding was given a patient ride there and quickened up in good style in the uphill finish to get the verdict by more than two-lengths. 

He carries a 6lb penalty for that win in Scotland, though half of that is set to be negated by Oisin McSweeney taking over in the saddle. 

He had a couple of last-time-out winners in behind in that contest at Hamilton and it was just his second start following a wind operation. He is seemingly improved at four, remains unexposed at this trip on turf and can double his tally. 

20:35 – Sassy Soprano @ 11/1

The evening card concludes with the 5f We're Back For Ladies Day Tomorrow Handicap and it's a contest in which plenty of the field rate as exposed sorts. 

There are a couple four-year-olds, Dunnington Lad and recent Musselburgh winner Protest Rally that could be capable of better but a chance is given to bottom-weight SASSY SOPRANO for trainer Ann Duffield. 

The Kodiac filly didn't show much in two runs last year, nor on her comeback at Newcastle on the Tapeta in April. That return was over 7f and a couple of starts back on turf at 5f have seen her in a better light. 

Most recently, she was beaten less than two-lengths when fourth at Catterick (5f, good to firm) in a first-time hood 11 days ago, running on well despite hanging left late. She's at a low base early on in her career in handicaps and wouldn't have a lot to find in order to go very close in a race such as this.
