Sunday's Market Rasen best bets and racing tips: Kingston Sunflower to bloom

Market Rasen serves up eight races over the jumps for the Planet Sport tipsters to get stuck into on Sunday, July 31.

Well done the team at Market Rasen wrapping up Sunday's meeting just ten minutes before the Euro 2022 final between England and Germany, I'm sure that was all part of the plan. Are you watching the ECB?

You can see all the latest racecards and results from Market Rasen by using the Planet Sport live centre, but first let's have a quick look at Sunday's selections.

13:35 (Market Rasen) Kingston Sunflower

14:10 (Market Rasen) Raecius Felix

14:45 (Market Rasen) Eureu Du Boulay

15:20 (Market Rasen) Mac Suibhne

15:50 (Market Rasen) Major Snugfit

16:20 (Market Rasen) Fox's Socks

16:50 (Market Rasen) Emily Wade

13:35 (Market Rasen) Kingston Sunflower

Kingston Sunflower ran a strange race last time, but did well to finish third on that occasion and, with more improvement to come, he is fancied to get off the mark here in what looks a much weaker race.

If the market speaks in favour of We'll Go Again, then he would be feared most on his first run for this yard after 214 days off the track.

Codey Jones looks open to improvement and could make the frame too.

14:10 (Market Rasen) Raecius Felix

Raecius Felix looks weighted to go well in the Deafblind UK Supports People With Deafblindness Handicap Chase.

The Rebecca Menzies-trained eight-year-old has not managed to get his head in front in almost two years, but is now rated just 93, having struck gold from a perch of 117 at Sedgefield in October 2020.

His last two efforts at Cartmel have suggested there are still races to be won with him, being beaten three and seven lengths respectively.

Under a light weight, this looks a good opportunity for Raecius Felix to regain the winning thread.

15:20 (Market Rasen) Mac Suibhne

Micky Hammond has his string firing on all cylinders and the Middleham handler looks poised to add to his tally with Mac Suibhne in the Nobilia By Bold Kitchens Novices' Handicap Hurdle.

The seven-year-old won over an extended two and a half miles at Market Rasen on his first run for Hammond a couple of starts back and looked set to follow up at Worcester nine days later when officially 6lb well-in.

He faded on the run-in, but was only beaten two lengths into fourth place, but perhaps that run came just a little too soon.

Stepping up in trip on his return to Lincolnshire, he is given another chance in the hands of the talented Emma Smith-Chaston.
