Tuesday's Epsom best bets and racing tips: City Spirit going for second win on bounce

Planet Sport tipsters are back at Epsom for the afternoon races on Tuesday, August 30.

Second day of racing on the Epsom Downs and hopefully we can steer you in the right direction again with another fistful of winners.

First you'll need a quick run through of our tips, if you need a bit more detail on our highlighted selections you can find that below. For all the racecards and results why not visit the Planet Sport live centre.


13:40 (Epsom) Star Player

14:15 (Epsom) Cool Party

14:50 (Epsom) City Spirit

15:20 (Epsom) Qeyaady

15:50 (Epsom) Mellys Flyer

16:20 (Epsom) Bonus

16:55 (Epsom) Bear To Dream

14:15 (Epsom) Cool Party

Cool Party is difficult to oppose in the British Stallion Studs EBF Restricted Maiden Stakes.

Unlike the majority of Charlie and Mark Johnston's youngsters, this Postponed colt was slowly away on his Lingfield bow last week and as a result ended up on the back foot and in a poor position.

It is testament to his latent ability that he was still only beaten a diminishing nose by the twice placed Zicatela and he must have every chance of going one better on the Surrey Downs.

14:50 (Epsom) City Spirit

Now City Spirit has found the winning groove, she can register a second successive victory in the John Sutcliffe Handicap.

Out of luck in her first four starts for Andrew Balding, she finally came good at the second time of asking in handicap class, triumphing from a mark of 56 at Windsor at the start of August.

The application of a hood appeared to work the oracle that day and with the headgear retained and Harry Davies taking off a useful 3lb, City Spirit should be in the mix again.

16:55 (Epsom) Bear To Dream

This doesn't look any stronger than the race Bear To Dream landed at Brighton earlier in the month and although she's now 7lb higher, she won with some authority so is expected to follow up if in the same form.

Whistledown is 1-1 here and, in a race lacking in depth, she can get involved off top weight.

Voodoo Ray is still relatively unexposed and, off a mark of 47, he's one to keep a close eye on.
