Robin Goodfellow’s racing tips: Best bets for Tuesday, August 10


Robin Goodfellow’s racing tips: Best bets for Tuesday, August 10











Trainer Richard Hannon is planning to give Derby runner-up Mojo Star what he hopes will be a confidence-boosting chance to break his duck in the maiden at Newbury on Saturday ahead of a challenge for next month’s Cazoo St Leger.

Mojo Star, who has yet to win in his four starts, split Adayar and Hurricane Lane at Epsom, subsequent winners of the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes and Irish Derby respectively.

Mojo Star, who also has an entry in the Great Voltigeur Stakes at York next week, ran in the Irish Derby but was badly hampered before staying on for fifth place.

Hannon said: ‘He has had a bit of a break since the Irish Derby. Newbury is a local track and a win there would be a nice preparation for the Leger. He was a little unlucky in the Irish Derby. He is a big horse and when he gets stopped and loses momentum, it takes a lot to get him going again. His form is standing up.

‘He was second in a Derby so he is fast enough but the mile and six furlongs of the St Leger is exactly what he needs.’

Mojo Star is 14-1 for the St Leger at Doncaster on September 11, where he will face a rematch with Charlie Appleby-trained Hurricane Lane.
