Andy Holding’s Tuesday Racing Tips

UGO GREGORY (NAP) (best cost 7-4) conducted out a fairly impressive winner over the C&D seven times ago and he has to be graded a nice wager to follow suit on his return trip. Having been tried over seven-furlongs along with a mile without much success, the choice has been made to drop the child of Gregorian down in excursion to see if that might bring about a reversal in fortunes. And so it proved. Always travelling off the back of strong fractions, Tim Easterby’s gelding picked up the running well two out and from that point onwards he never looked in any threat. Clocking an extremely smart speed figure into the bargain, the three-year-old hurried way beyond the expectations of a horse ranked only 58, also with relations within their rights to strike while the iron is hot prior to being reassessed, it’d be disappointing when he failed to deliver the merchandise for the next time per week under identical conditions.
Other than one tame effort when hurrying far too keen over an elongated 2m2f at Chester, DIOCLETIAN (best cost 9-4) has shown a real all-natural propensity for soft earth and observing another sound attempt with give underfoot last time out, Andrew Balding’s inmate is fancied to regain the winning thread.
Having run a good race over 1m6f in Sandown previously, the son of Camelot led back into the Roodeye with high hopes he could go 1 place better, but following what may only be described as a nightmare passing around the tight, left track track, he once again had to pay for a minor function. Apparently filled with conducting heading inside the last half a distance, the four-year-old just got caught in traffic in a crucial point and by the time he’d wormed his way out of difficulty, the ultimate winner, Overhaugh Street,’d got first run from the front. On the only other time Diocletian had encountered soft ground and a big, galloping track, he ran out a comfortable winner in Doncaster this time this past year and with further rain going to make sure this contest will take some getting, he is expected to place his stamina to good use.
