Todays Alan King Horse Racing Tips

Race 1 York 14:25 Group 2 (Class 1) 16f

247 Trueshan
Top-class performer who completed 5-timer with superb weight-carrying performance in 20-runner Northumberland Plate (Handicap) at Newcastle in June. Ran another fine race when 1½ lengths third of 9 to Kyprios in Goodwood Cup on ground faster than ideal 24 days ago and he's a lead player once more.
9-5Hollie Doyle Alan Kinglocked2/10.83/159
241 Coltrane
Improved performer this season, following up his Ascot Stakes win in listed event at Sandown (16.2f) in July. Ran another fine race when 4¾ lengths fourth of 9 to Kyprios in Goodwood Cup subsequently and he's well worth his place in this field.
9-5Rob HornbyAndrew Baldinglocked6.5/13.5/146
646 Tashkhan
Big improver for this yard last year, culminating with excellent 1½ lengths second (Stradivarius third) to Trueshan in Long Distance Cup at Ascot in October. Run with credit in trio of starts this campaign, 5 lengths fifth to Kyprios in Gold Cup in June but some easing of the ground would help.
9-5Ben RobinsonBrian Ellisonlocked14/111/121
363 Quickthorn
Upwardly-mobile last term, winning Duke of Edinburgh (12f) at the Royal Meeting and even better when runner-up in the Ebor here. Returned in excellent heart, taking Henry II on his penultimate start and followed up in French Group 2 latest (albeit shade fortunate). Should go well again.
9-5Tom MarquandHughie Morrisonlocked14/16.5/154
214 Reshoun
Smart staying handicapper who produced solid efforts in defeat in Ascot Stakes/Queen Alexandra at the Royal Meeting and deservedly back to winning ways in Newbury handicap (16.5f) in July. Good fifth in Goodwood handicap has followed but has work cut out to play a lead role here.
9-5Jim CrowleyIan Williamslocked50/150/10
288 Mostly Cloudy
Most progressive staying handicapper who defined another hike in weights to complete excellent 5-timer at Ascot (2m) 4 weeks ago, produced to lead over 1f out and forging clear. This understandably demands a whole lot more but he may not have reached his limit just yet.
8-7Connor BeasleyGemma Tuttylocked50/122/156
242 Nate The Great
Looked better than ever this term, wide-margin winner of a Newmarket handicap (14f) prior to good second in Group 3 Henry II at Sandown in May. However, well beaten in Queen Alexandra in June and found things too tough when last of 9 in Goodwood Cup since.
9-5William BuickAndrew Baldinglocked66/150/124
There are 7 runners in this race.

Race 2 Newbury 15:20 Handicap (Class 5) 12f

432 Wagga Wagga
Progressive, well-bred sort who arrives on the hat-trick having scored cosily at this course (13.3f) in July. More to come, so looks the one to beat.
9-7Sean LeveyHughie Morrisonlocked1.2/10.91/124
213 Jalea Moon
Career best when winning 7-runner handicap at Newmarket (12f, good to firm, 5/2) 21 days ago, soon clear. Going the right way and looks likely to put up another bold showing.
9-6Adam KirbyJane Chapple-Hyamlocked4.5/16.5/144
137 Dark Mystery
Fair maiden who benefited from a drop back in grade when second in a 4-runner handicap at Newmarket 13 days ago. Looks vulnerable to less-exposed types, though.
9-3Hector CrouchIan Williamslocked6.5/110/154
294 Meleri
Nathaniel filly who showed big improvement to make a winning handicap debut at Newmarket in June and was far from discredited when second at Sandown next time. Has stamina to prove but she's worthy of respect.
9-6Pat CosgraveJim Boylelocked10/18/120
151 Novel Legend
Fair form on each of his first 3 outings, shaping a bit better than the result at Nottingham last time. Potential improver up in trip, but the handicapper hasn't taken any chances with opening mark.
9-11Rhys ClutterbuckJames Fanshawelocked12/111/18
189 Trojan Truth
Fair form to date but had the run of things when third at Windsor on handicap debut. Others look to have a bit more scope for improvement.
9-0Trevor WhelanEd de Gileslocked12/125/1108
216 Livalot
Fair form to date and bred to do a bit better, so not a forlorn hope now switched to handicaps with Dettori booked.
9-4Frankie DettoriWilliam Jarvislocked14/116/114
218 Ve Day
Shaped well on his second start at Wolverhampton in the winter and shaped as if he needed his return at Southwell 3 weeks ago. Remains with potential now handicapping.
9-2Jason WatsonAndrew Baldinglocked16/114/113
215 Tying The Knot
Lightly raced maiden who was down the field at Southwell last time and will need to up his game if he's to make an impact what looks like a stiff opening mark.
9-5Martin Harley Alan Kinglocked25/150/1100
There are 9 runners in this race.

Race 3 Newbury 15:50 Handicap (Class 4) 10f

151 Frantastic
Full brother to Cracksman who is low mileage and shaped better than the result when third (having suffered interference) at Sandown 15 days ago. Can show what he's capable of this time.
9-11Frankie DettoriJohn & Thady locked1.63/11.88/115
212 Youthful King
Better than ever lately, producing a likeable effort to complete a double in an 8-runner handicap at Sandown in July. Respectable third at Goodwood since, and another solid showing is expected.
9-4Marco GhianiLuke Dacelocked3.5/12.75/121
216 Admiralty House
Sea The Stars gelding who showed race-by-race progress on first 3 starts, runner-up in a Salisbury maiden (12f) in June. Has looked rather awkward on his last couple of outings, though.
9-0Martin Harley Alan Kinglocked7/19/129
354 Guilin
Second career when seeing off 6 rivals in 1¼m Salisbury novice in May, then wasn't disgraced in a falsely-run affair at Newmarket last time. Back down in trip, and remains with some potential.
9-2Connor PlanasS Woodslocked7/17/10
113 Tartan Chief
Dual winner last term and back on his game when runner-up at Windsor 11 days ago. Should give another good account under a positive ride.
9-3Sean LeveyPaul & Oliver Colelocked7/19/129
157 Danza Della Luna
Improved to score at Pontefract in July but failed to back it up at Nottingham 15 days ago. Too soon to write her off, particularly as this track should suit.
8-12Lewis EdmundsWilliam Muir & locked12/116/133
155 Cave Diver
Fairly useful filly who wasn't disgraced when fourth of 6 at Nottingham last time, but clearly needs to improve if she's to defy this mark.
9-1Saffie OsborneClive Coxlocked12/114/117
There are 7 runners in this race.

Race 4 Salisbury 16:52 Handicap (Class 5) 8f

84 Sly Madam
3 wins from 10 runs this year. 13/2, career best when winning 11-runner handicap at this C&D (good to firm) 8 days ago, well on top finish. Respected under a penalty.
10-135exMiss Megan Sheena Westlocked3.5/12.5/129
253 Hurricane Helen
2 wins from 6 runs this year, latest success at Bath in July. Only third of 5 in handicap at Ffos Las (7.4f, soft, 13/8) 25 days ago. Could leave latest effort behind returned to 1m.
10-13Mr Patrick MillmanRod Millmanlocked4.5/15.5/122
2211 Gavi Di Gavi
3/1, ran well when second of 7 in handicap at this C&D (good to firm) 22 days ago, doing too much too soon. Can take advantage of his much lower turf mark.
10-6Miss Georgia King Alan Kinglocked5/16.5/130
1106 Luna Magic
Having dropped in the weights, improved on recent efforts to win 14-runner handicap (3/1) at this course (7f, good to firm). Off 110 days. Can go well again.
10-11Miss Brodie Archie Watsonlocked7/17/10
557 Aryaah
Latest win at Leicester in May. Below form both starts since though, last of 3 in handicap (11/4) at Newmarket (10f, good) 55 days ago. Needs to get back on track with tongue strap now applied.
10-10Miss Rachel KellyGeorge Bougheylocked8/18.5/16
308 Mr Zee
Latest win at Leicester in July. Not in the same form when last of 7 in handicap at Sandown (10f, good, 17/2) 30 days ago. Bounce back called for.
10-7Mr Henry MainMichael Blakelocked9/112/133
391 Rival
Has struggled for form this year, fourth of 6 in handicap (14/1) at Windsor (10f, good to firm) 39 days ago. Has enough to prove at present.
11-2Mr Freddie GordonJohn Flintlocked10/110/10
219 Hot Day
Not discredited when fifth of 11 in handicap at Wolverhampton (8.6f, 8/1) 21 days ago. Had run well at this C&D on his penultimate start and can give another good account.
10-7Mr Lewis SaundersJ S Moorelocked12/19/125
282 Sir Plato
Latest win at Chepstow in June. However, below form at the same course both starts since, fifth of 8 (11/2) in handicap (8.1f, good to firm) 28 days ago. Cheekpieces back on.
11-2Mrs Jo SuppleRod Millmanlocked20/128/140
435 Always Fearless
After 9 weeks off, ran no sort of race when last of 8 in handicap (18/1) at Newbury (8f, good to firm) 43 days ago. Best watched.
