Andy Holding’s Tuesday Racing Tips

UGO GREGORY (NAP) (best cost 7-4) ran out a pretty impressive winner over the C&D seven days ago and he needs to be rated a nice bet to follow suit on his return visit. Having been tried over seven-furlongs plus a mile without much success, the decision was made to drop the child of Gregorian back down in excursion to find out whether that might bring about a change in fortunes. And so it proved. Always travelling well off the back of powerful fractions, Tim Easterby’s gelding picked the conducting well two out and from there onwards he never seemed in any threat. Clocking a very wise speed figure to the bargain, the three-year-old conducted way beyond the hopes of a horse ranked only 58, also with relations quite within their rights to strike while the iron is still hot until being reassessed, it’d be disappointing if he failed to provide the merchandise for the second time per week under equal conditions.
Apart from one tame effort when racing far overly excited over an extended 2m2f at Chester, DIOCLETIAN (best price 9-4) has demonstrated a genuine all-natural propensity for soft ground and observing another sound effort with give underfoot last time out, Andrew Balding’s inmate is fancied to regain the winning thread.
Having run a solid race over 1m6f at Sandown before, the boy of Camelot headed back into your Roodeye with high hopes he could go one place better, but after what may only be described as a nightmare passage around the tight, left handed track, he had to pay for a small function. Seemingly full of running going within the final half a mile, the four-year-old just got caught in traffic in a crucial point and from the time he’d wormed his way out of trouble, the ultimate winner, Overhaugh Street, had got first run in front. On the other time Diocletian had struck soft ground and a big, galloping track, he ran out a comfortable winner in Doncaster this time this past year and with rain inclined to make sure this contest will take a while getting, he is expected to place his stamina to use.
