Alan Thomson’s Racing Tips: Bart can seal a hat-trick


BARTHOLOMEW J (5.20) is developing into a Yarmouth specialist and another 5lb rise shouldn’t stop him racking up a summer hat-trick on this quick ground.

These apprentices’ hands and heels handicaps aren’t necessarily the best betting mediums but Sir Mark Prescott’s apprentice Gavin Ashton has been hired by Lydia Pearce to do the business.

TAPIS LIBRE (6.00) returns to Epsom to defend the ladies’ race he won last year off a 5lb higher mark.

The veteran gelding also won the Queen Mother’s Cup at York 12 months ago but managed only fourth spot this year behind surprise winner Mister Belvedere.

The fact that Tapis Libre has dropped 5lb on official ratings points to a slight deterioration in form this season but he excels under Joanna Mason in these amateur events. He edged out Whinging Willie last year and course form is so important on the Downs.

LUIS VAZ DE TORRES (7.35) has never been in better shape and is only 2lb higher for his latest victory at Ayr.

Silvestre De Sousa kicks on from Haydock (four rides) to Newbury this evening and has picked up three nice mounts. The champion jockey usually partners Rose Berry but the fact that he stays loyal to Yarmouth scorer RESTLESS ROSE (7.50) could be significant. She looks like an improving three-year-old filly.

    What a difference a day makes, after just the one tennis winner on Tuesday things are looking good for Wednesdays selections,
    RADU ALBOT won after being advised at 12/5
    EVGENIYA RODINA won after being advised at 20/11
    ADRIAN MANNARINO & DONNA VEKIC both won so we are just waiting on PHILIP KOHLSCHREIBER, he is a set up and 5-3 up in the 2nd set tiebreak, the treble was advised at 2.08/1
    ANDREAS SEPPI has also to finish his match and he is 2-1 down so he sill has a chance

    The only loser on Wednesday was TAJANA MARIA
