Wednesday Races: Get on long-shot early !

A long-shot fancy and some decent prices have tempted us to publish early this evening with tomorrow’s tips…

Wednesday’s cards come from all corners of the country.  We will go about as far east as any racecourse in the UK and head for the sunny seaside town of Great Yarmouth.

The staying handicap (1500 BST) has a host of form horses near the head of the market.  Possibly the most interesting of those is Graceful Lady who was a good second over a shorter trip here last time.

However, a sneaky eye-catcher in that race was Esspeegee.  This lightly raced type was having a first run in over 240 days, and although well held, was making nice late progress when hampered.  With that run under the belt, a longer trip, and hopefully a bit more pace, he could show enough progress to cause a surprise.

Robert Tart retains the ride, and the Alan Bailey stable usually know when to expect a win so we will be watching the market with keen interest.  He is currently priced as a huge outsider, he may well be better than that.

Later on the card we have a straight 7f handicap.  That is basically code for “get on Jamie Spencer”, and we fully intend to.

His mount Realize finished 4th here last time in a pretty decent event.  This looks weaker on paper, and Spencer rarely fails to deliver on these well fancied runners under these conditions.  He gets a confident nod.


Esspeegee (1500 Yarmouth), 25/1, each way, Bet365

Realize (1630 Yarmouth) 10/3, win, Paddy Power
