RACING TIPS: The best bets for Tuesday’s action at Newcastle and Kempton

RACING TIPS: The best bets for Tuesday’s action at Newcastle and Kempton as UK racing continues after emerging from lockdown

Tough Remedy (Newcastle, nap, 12.45) can often be a hostage to fortune given his come-from-behind run style, but he may prove the answer to a competitive opening handicap on day two of UK racing’s resumption.

Hopefully, the likes of Jackstar and Hillwalker will ensure an honest pace and give the selection a target to aim at late on and his Gosforth Park form figures (13125) suggest he ought to be on the scene if rider Meg Nicholls can navigate a clean route through.

Rebecca Menzies inherited Tough Remedy two starts ago from fellow northern handler Keith Dalgleish and wasted little time utilising cheekpieces on the five-year-old when he was narrowly beaten at Kempton back in February.

Newcastle will host its second day of racing after the sport returned at the course on Monday



12.45 Tough Remedy (nap) 

1.20 Fifth Position 

1.55 Ayr Harbour 

2.30 Mubakker 

3.05 Lockdown 

3.40 Andronicus Beau 

4.15 Virginia Plane 

4.50 Winter Power 

5.25 Sexy Beast 

6.00 Medal Winner


12.45 Amplification 

1.20 Raydiance 

1.55 Custodian (nap)

3.05 Lockdown 

3.40 Victory Heights 

4.15 Imperial Butterfly 

4.50 Pelekai 

5.25 Mountain Ruler 

6.00 Sucellus

The headgear remains for Tuesday’s comeback and the fact Tough Remedy won at the north east venue in 2018 following a 172-day absence should allay fears he may not be straight enough for his return.

The draw could have been kinder to First Receiver (Kempton, nb, 3.55) but a wide berth over a mile at the Sunbury venue is often better than being trapped on the rail from an early stage.

Hopefully, Ryan Moore can maximise the experience of the selection who shaped with real promise on both starts last term and is said to have subsequently made considerable strides in the off season.

Although the form of his last outing at Kempton has taken one or two hits, the time suggested it was a piece of form worth following and the son of New Approach is taken to vindicate the faith and go some way to justifying his Derby entry.
