Horse racing tips: A great 8 from today’s Market Rasen card

The Racing Post takes us through today's Market Rasen card.


12:00 – Balagan

Balagan returned from a brief stint away from the sport to have back-to-back impressive runs at Uttoxeter in July. The 5yo won his first race back and followed it up with a 2nd place finish. The wind op he had has done him the world of good. 

12:30 – Soldier On Parade 

Soldier On Parade is well fancied today after an impressive win here a month ago. The 3yo is a fair flat-racer, and chased home dual subsequent winner Hiconic on his hurdle debut at Bangor, finishing in 2nd before going on to win at Market Rasen just a few weeks later. 

13:05 – Millie Of Mayo 

Having made no impact in three slow-ground runs during the winter, with no better than a 6th place finish, Millie Of Mayo came out looking superb at Market Rasen last month. The 5yo ridden by Danny McMenamin – who rides her today – won in a field of nine last time out and is fancied today. 

13:40 – Diamond Gait 

Despite being well-beaten on her last run, finishing last in a field of 7 at Newton Abbot, she is well handicapped today and should give a better account of herself. Diamond Gait made an encouraging chase debut two starts ago, finishing 4th of 9 at Stratford-on-Avon.

14:15 – El Presente 

El Presente had a great run on his last start, winning at Market Rasen when being ridden by David Bass, who rides him today. The 7yo also reached the frame in a wam novice chase at Huntingdon last season, and remains lightly raced over fences.  

14:50 –  Paricolor 

Paricolor had an impressive pair of wins back-to-back at Fakenham and Sedgefield late last year, and followed that up with a 3rd place finish at Market Rasen on Boxing Day. He was disappointing in his final winter run at Plumpton, but was distracted by a loose horse at the time, and is still a major player today.  

15:25 – Tricky Customer 

Tricky Customer has a mixed record in points/hurdles from his first nine starts, but had a great showing last time out, winning at Market Rasen last month. The 6yo ran well on heavy over hurdles, and will enjoy the good conditions today. 

16:00 – Dens Delight 

Dens Delight is the half-brother to Mille Chief, a very impressive hurdler, and is tipped to follow suit. The 5yo has only been out once, and looked good on his debut to finish 2nd from 6 spots at Market Rasen, pushing the eventual winner close.
