Todays John & Thady Gosden Horse Racing Tips

Race 1 Haydock 15:00 Group 3 (Class 1) 10f

215 Grocer Jack
Dual Group 3 winner in Europe last year and it hasn't taken long for him to show himself capable of even better form for his new yard, blitzing his rivals from the front in Newbury listed over this triup last month. Will take a lot of stopping if in a similar mood.
9-7Tom MarquandWilliam Haggaslocked1.25/11.38/110
281 Anmaat
Highly-progressive at 3 and improved again when making a successful reappearance in ultra-competitive John Smith's Cup Handicap at York last month, with Intellogent ¾ length back in third. Could be more to come from this low-mileage 4-y-o.
9-7Jim CrowleyOwen Burrowslocked5/12.75/145
368 Passion And Glory
Group 3 winner at Goodwood last summer and back to his best when making all in 1¼m Sandown listed 5 weeks ago, with the reopposing Foxes Tales back in fourth. No reason he won't give another good account.
9-7Louis StewardSaeed bin Suroorlocked7.5/19/120
286 Intellogent
Group 1 winner in France as a 3-y-o and new stable has coaxed him back to his best, running crackers under big weights in the Royal Hunt Cup and John Smith's Cup on his last 2 starts. ¾-length behind Anmaat in latter but meets him on 2 lb better terms now so there should be little between them.
9-7Adam KirbyJane Chapple-Hyamlocked7.5/110/133
6410 Royal Champion
Got his career firmly back on track after a gelding op when readily landing a 1¼m handicap at the Epsom Derby meeting. Will need another chunk of improvement now stepping back up in up class but his lightly-raced profile provides hope.
9-7Andrea AtzeniRoger Varianlocked10/116/160
439 Peter The Great
Reacted positively to blinkers when dominating small-field 1¼m handicaps at Chelmsford and Newmarket in June. Posted a smart effort at latter track but fair bit more will be needed again now stepping up to pattern company.
9-7Robert Havlin John & Thady locked12/116/133
364 Foxes Tales
Won this race 12 months ago but hasn't hit the same heights in 4 outings this year. Will need to get back to his very best if he's to go close to defending his crown.
9-7David ProbertAndrew Baldinglocked20/114/130
283 Certain Lad
Group 3 winner in 2020. Off 18 months, showed that he retains plenty of ability when second in Huxley at Chester but only mid-field in Wolferton at Royal Ascot and John Smith's Cup at York since. Others preferred.
9-7Ben CurtisMick Channonlocked28/125/111
352 Brentford Hope
Placed at Group 2/3 level in Europe last autumn. Ran well until his stamina gave out in 1½m Old Newton Cup here last month but likely to come up short in this company unless first-time cheekpieces spark improvement.
9-7Pat DobbsRichard Hugheslocked28/133/118
137 Marie's Diamond
Front-runner who showed he's still capable of smart form when second in 1m Pontefract listed 13 days ago but this is a stronger race and this extended 1¼m stretches his stamina in any case.
9-7Silvestre De SousaRoger Felllocked50/150/10
There are 10 runners in this race.

Race 2 Newmarket 15:05 Handicap (Class 2) 10f

493 Falling Shadow
Impressive winner on his return at Newbury. Gelded before posting good seventh on his handicap debut at Royal Ascot (10f) 49 days ago. Remains open to progress. Player off an unchaged mark.
9-5James DoyleCharlie Applebylocked1.38/11.75/127
236 Night Of Luxury
Has clicked since switched to handicaps and made it 2 from his last 3 with a ready success at Epsom 23 days ago. There may well be more to come, so he's very much one to consider.
8-11David EganSaeed bin Suroorlocked2.5/12.5/10
111 Kenzai Warrior
Arrives in good nick, sixth of 18 in 10f handicap at Goodwood 11 days ago. In the mix off a 2 lb lower mark now.
10-2Sean LeveyRoger Teallocked5.5/16.5/118
4142 Daramethos
Successful debut in 10f Chelmsford maiden but off 13 months since coming in last (blinkered) in handicap over C&D. Headgear is left off for his comeback and he's no forlorn hope for his top yard.
9-5Benoit De La John & Thady locked10/16/140
95 Whitefeathersfall
Opened his account on return at Carlisle (9f) in July but only ninth in 10f handicap at Goodwood 9 days ago. Needs to bounce back.
8-13Cieren FallonCharlie & Mark locked10/18/120
254 Wonder Elmossman
In good heart at present, placed 3 times since opening his account for the year at Lingfield in April. Yet to fully convince on the turf though, so percentage call is probably to look elsewhere.
9-0J F EganJ S Moorelocked11/114/127
There are 6 runners in this race.

Race 3 Haydock 15:35 Listed (Class 1) 8f

282 Don't Tell Claire
9-4Liam KeniryDaniel & Claire locked0
108 Oscula
Likeable sort who posted a career best when winning 15-runner Oak Tree Stakes at Goodwood (7f) 10 days ago by head from Internationalangel, despite conceding first run. Just as effective over this longer trip. Player.
9-2Ben CurtisGeorge Bougheylocked1.5/12.25/150
509 Crenelle
Scored at Newmarket in April and she recorded an excellent third of 28 in Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot (8f) 50 days ago. Well in the mix with more to offer.
8-11Robert Havlin John & Thady locked3.5/12.5/129
2212 Thundershower
Fast improving filly who made it 2-3 in 1m minor event at Nottingham (10/11) 22 days ago. This represents her toughest test yet but she's not discounted with more progress on the cards.
8-11Martin Harley John & Thady locked6.5/111/169
326 Rising Star
Landed Kensington Palace Handicap at Royal Ascot but below-par fourth of 8 to Thunder Beauty in listed race at Pontefract (8f) 32 days ago. Needs to get back on track.
9-4Andrea AtzeniMarco Bottilocked14/16.5/154
2210 Floral Splendour
11/4, overcame her inexperience to make a winning debut in 11-runner maiden here (7f, good) 22 days ago, forging clear. This demands a big step forward, though.
8-11Jim CrowleyJames Tatelocked14/116/114
431 Auria
Useful filly. 22/1, did too much too soon when only eighth of 9 to Poptronic in Hoppings Fillies' Stakes at Newcastle (10.2f) 43 days ago so she can't be ruled out.
9-4David ProbertAndrew Baldinglocked16/112/125
145 Random Harvest
Bagged 1m Ascot handicap in July and backed it up with good third of 10 in handicap there 14 days ago. Needs more in this grade, though.
9-4Saffie OsborneEd Walkerlocked16/111/131
283 Isola Rossa
Scored in 1m Lingfield handicap in May and not disgraced when sixth of 10 to Random Harvest in handicap at Ascot (8f) 28 days ago. This demands more, however.
9-4Pat DobbsJames Fanshawelocked25/122/112
2827 Sunset Bay
Useful filly but she's been off 9 months since only ninth of 12 in listed race (33/1) at Lingfield (8f, AW). Needs to hit the ground running.
9-4Tom MarquandEd Walkerlocked25/125/10
4511 Midheaven
Fairly useful filly who comes here on the back of creditable fifth of 12 to Oscula in 7f listed race at Carlisle 45 days ago. Has plenty on her plate in this company.
8-11Pierre-Louis JaminDavid O'Mearalocked40/150/125
There are 11 runners in this race.

Race 4 Newmarket 16:20 Handicap (Class 2) 7f

76 Love De Vega
Landed a Nottingham novice in June last year and showed improved form to follow up on handicap debut over C&D 14 months later. Quick turnaround is a slight niggle after such a long absence the time before but further progress can't be ruled out.
8-11Richard KingscoteCharlie & Mark locked1.88/12/16
75 Mitrosonfire
Beat a subsequent winner at Nottingham in June and has performed respectably since, not seen to best when sixth at Goodwood (6f) last week, finishing with running left. Must enter calculations.
9-2P J McDonaldWilliam Muir & locked4/16.5/163
144 Star Of Orion
C&D winner from 1 lb higher in 2021 but has yet to fire this season, well held in International Stakes at Ascot latest. Blinkers on for 1st time.
9-10Rob HornbyRalph Beckettlocked4/15/125
143 Ropey Guest
Has just 2 wins to his name but putting together an excellent CV in the good-quality handicaps, runner-up in the Buckingham Palace before filling same spot in Bunbury Cup over C&D. Not disgraced in International Stakes at Ascot latest and seems sure to remain competitive at the very least.
9-10Tom QueallyGeorge Margarsonlocked4.5/13.5/122
281 Al Rufaa
Most progressive as a 3-y-o but lightly raced since and seemed to turn it in when well held in the Buckingham Palace at Royal Ascot. Raced closer to pace than ideal in Bunbury Cup over C&D last time and top claimer now takes over, but doubts linger about his attitude.
10-0Benoit De La John & Thady locked5/13.33/133
72 Typhoon Ten
Won twice at Lingfield last August but was soundly beaten in the Ayr Silver Cup on his final 2021 start and it was a similar story in the Stewards Cup at Goodwood on his reappearance last week.
9-12Sean LeveyRichard Hannonlocked16/122/138
There are 6 runners in this race.

Race 5 Ascot 16:30 Handicap (Class 3) 12f

375 Hamaki
Back-to-back winner last summer and resumed progress when scoring at Haydock last time. Type to go on improving and shapes as if he'll stay this far, so could take the beating under Spencer.
9-10Jamie SpencerWilliam Haggaslocked3/13/10
286 Berkshire Breeze
Consistent to date and found a bit of improvement when runner-up at this course 28 days ago. This is a bit more competitive and he's back down in trip, but not dismissed.
9-8Joanna MasonAndrew Baldinglocked4.5/13/133
163 Franz Strauss
Gradually progressive and didn't lose much in defeat to an improver at Sandown last time. Should go well again under a positive ride.
10-0Jose-Luis Martinez John & Thady locked5.5/18/145
84 Sheer Rocks
Likeable type who overcame the run of the race to score cosily under this jockey at Chester in July and backed it up with a creditable fourth at Goodwood 8 days ago. Should give another good account.
9-11Frankie DettoriEve Johnson locked7.5/18/17
1211 Wootton'Sun
Fairly useful sort who has been in good order and shapes as if this trip will suit, so he's a definite player.
8-13Rene PiechulekRichard Faheylocked10/111/110
102 Approachability
Useful sort who was quickly back to form when mid-field (despite missing the break) at Goodwood 10 days ago. Leaves the impression there's a bigger effort in him.
10-0Hayley TurnerCharlie & Mark locked10/112/120
127 Pub Crawl
Good efforts in defeat the last twice, second again at Windsor last time. He's not the most straightforward, though, and often starts slowly, so he will need everything to drop right.
9-2Jason CollettMichael Belllocked12/112/10
201 Supagirl
Already a three-time winner this season and shaped nicely under a 10-lb claimer at the Curragh last time. Should be on the premises again.
10-2Christophe-PatriceMrs John locked14/18/143
810 Sharp Combo
Off the mark at the second attempt in a Wolverhampton maiden last term but just one creditable effort from 4 outings this year.
8-13Emma-Jayne WilsonCharlie & Mark locked18/128/156
229 Dancing Tango
Lightly-raced filly who improved her form when fifth at Newbury on handicap bow. Mark clearly demands more, though.
9-2Daniel TudhopeHarry & Roger locked20/114/130
There are 10 runners in this race.

Race 6 Newmarket 16:51 Handicap (Class 2) 8f

282 Bay Of Honour
Lightly-raced Shamardal colt who doubled his tally at Thirsk in June and, while slightly underwhelming over C&D on handicap debut, he remains with potential. Player.
9-3James DoyleCharlie Applebylocked1.63/11.1/133
283 Spinaround
Scored with a bit in hand at Chelmsford in June and has remained in form since, albeit unable to land a blow over C&D last time. Needs a solid pace but not discounted.
9-3Benoit De La John & Thady locked4/13.33/117
3234 Croupier
Improved form when making a winning nursery debut at Newbury in August and backed it up with an excellent second to American Star at same course. Has been off 10 months since, but should be ready to go.
8-12Harry BurnsSimon & Ed locked5/16/120
281 Tuscan
Useful sort who improved when fourth in a listed event at Chester last time but handicapper has taken a dim view of that effort, so even more required now back in a handicap.
9-10P J McDonaldCharles Hillslocked6/13.5/142
There are 4 runners in this race.

Race 7 Lingfield 17:35 Stakes (Class 5) 8f

284 Running Lion
Promising type. Fourth of 6 in maiden at Newmarket (7f, good to firm, 3/1) on debut 28 days ago. Good looker who will relish 1m and very much the one to beat.
9-2Daniel Muscutt John & Thady locked0.8/10.8/10
229 Tomouh Dubai
Seventh of 11 in maiden (12/1) at Newbury (6f, good) on debut 22 days ago. Significantly up in trip and will surely know more this time.
9-2Ray DawsonSaeed bin Suroorlocked4/13/125
02 Mildyjama
Foaled February 20. 95,000 gns yearling, Zoffany filly. Half-sister to 3 winners, including 1m-13f winner Sea Lieutenant and 11.3f/1½m winner L'un Deux Trois. Makes plenty of appeal on paper.
9-2Hector CrouchRalph Beckettlocked6.5/110/154
08 Therapist
Foaled February 19. Le Havre filly. Dam, 7f winner (including at 2 yrs), half-sister to useful 6f/7f winner Diagnostic. Noteworthy newcomer.
9-2William CoxAndrew Baldinglocked7.5/17.5/10
211 Gilded Moon
Fourth of 6 in novice event at Doncaster (7f, good to firm, 12/1) on debut 21 days ago, not knocked about. Likely to build on that.
9-2Marco GhianiEd Dunloplocked8.5/112/141
06 Spritzin'
Foaled February 23. 265,000 gns yearling, Sea The Stars filly. Half-sister to several winners, including useful/ungenuine 2-y-o 8.3f winner My Lord And Master and 8.3f winner Aura Blue.
9-2Luke MorrisSir Mark Prescott locked20/120/10
73 Nancy Angel
