August 8 Racing Tips: Mafia Power to whack rivals at Leicester?

Planet Sport tipsters shake off another sleepy Sunday with some hot tips for race meetings at Windsor, Leicester and the Curragh on August 8.

Ugh, is it Sunday already? That means another working week is nearly upon us. Why not cheer yourself up with a few winners from out hot selections below.

Sunday's racing at Haydock has been abandoned due to waterlogging.

Here's a quick snapshot of today's selection. Click on the horse's name to have a punt with Planet Sport Bet.

Kensington Agent (1.00 Windsor)

Ghaly (2.35 Windsor)

Mafia Power (2.50 Leicester)

Light Refrain (3.05 Curragh)

Go Bears Go (4.10 Curragh)

1.00 Windsor - Kensington Agent

Kensington Agent was a head winner on her second attempt and the Racing League On Sky Sports Racing Fillies' Restricted Novice Stakes should be well within her capabilities.

Well beaten on her Windsor bow, soft ground probably counted against her and she showed much more back on a sounder surface at Bath.

She was always just doing enough that day and while the runner up was a shade unlucky, Kensington Agent should again feel the benefit of that run.

2.35 Windsor - Ghaly

Ghaly is expected to make a winning return to action in the Elizabeth Reddux Significant Birthday Handicap at Windsor.

Saeed bin Suroor's charge has two wins and two runner-up finishes to show from seven career starts to date, but has not been seen in competitive action since September.

The Dubawi gelding struck gold at Newmarket last summer, before finding only Shelir too strong in what was quite a strong handicap at Thirsk in the autumn.

The winner is now rated in the mid-90s and there is every chance Ghaly can progress from his current perch of 90 granted good health and good fortune in the coming weeks and months.

The obvious question is fitness after such a long time off the track, but the booking of champion jockey Oisin Murphy - who is firmly on course for a third successive title following a spectacular run of form - suggests connections mean business.

Other potential winners at Windsor include: 1.30 Gaius, 2.05 Anjella, 3.10 Lethal Blast, 3.45 Ruskin Red

2.50 Leicester - Mafia Power

Mafia Power is a consistent performer and can put his best foot forward again in the William Hill Double Your Odds Handicap at Leicester.

While he has just one win to his name, he has yet to run a bad race this season, just running into a more determined couple of rivals when third at Windsor on his last start.

The handicapper has eased him 1lb for that defeat and he remains in the right ballpark for success.

Others to like at Leicester: 1.18 Modern Games, 1.48 Sweet Bertie, 2.20 Equate, 3.25 Jeans Maite, 4.00 Dajraan, 4.33 Foxy Femme

3.05 Curragh - Light Refrain

On what can be a good day over in Ireland for the British raiders, Light Refrain is the choice in the Rathasker Stud Phoenix Sprint Stakes.

She looked a sprinter of potential in her Summer Stakes victory at York.

4.10 Curragh - Go Bears Go

Group One action is also offer at the Curragh, with Go Bears Go taken to confirm Railway Stakes form with Castle Star in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes.

David Loughnane's charge had a length and a quarter in hand that day and while Castle Star met trouble in running, Go Bears Go found that bit extra when challenged.

Other chances at the Curragh include: 1.25 Cowboy Justice, 1.55 Livia Celeste, 2.30 Micromoon, 3.40 Jon Riggens, 4.40 Eagle's Flight, 5.10 Ramiro.
