April 12 Racing Tips: Swinging Eddie to find the right beat at Wolverhampton

Following the excitement of Aintree's Grand National meeting we are back down to earth with cards at Wolverhampton, Redcar, Windsor and Huntingdon on Monday April 12.

Looking to get involved in today's racing action? Well, look no further, as Planet Sport's tipsters are back to give you the stick to bash the bookies with.


In-form trainer Grant Tuer will be hoping Swinging Eddie keeps him on the winning track in the Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap (4.50).

Swinging Eddie is a big fan of the Wolverhampton track having collected two firsts and a third in his last three visits, albeit each time at just over seven furlongs.

The five-year-old is up 5lb for his victory at the end of last month, but that was a performance with a bit of substance for this grade.

Tuer is also in fine form, having recorded a treble at Newcastle last week and a 100 per cent success rate on that card. Swinging Eddie looks well capable of keeping the good run going.

Tuer has so far eked just one win out of Kaafy, who could well double that tally in the Free Tips Daily On attheraces.com Handicap (6.20).

Kaafy has a patchy overall record but was back in good heart again with an encouraging second here, on the card which yielded Swinging Eddie's victory.

Masque Of Anarchy has run with promise on all three starts for his new stable, after returning from a long break at the start of last month.

The first two of those efforts came here, latterly at this distance, before he ran well over further despite finding himself in an awkward early position at Bath.

He has shown enough of late to suggest he can break his duck at this moderate level in the Download The At The Races App Handicap (5.20)

In the closing Sky Sports Racing HD Virgin 535 Handicap (7.50), Pips Tune may strike a winning chord.

The son of Helmet raced exclusively at Southwell in three novice and two handicap starts, after making his debut in December, until trying this course and distance last month.

He gave himself a tough task after starting slowly but picked up well to finish a near five-length third of 13.

Pips Tune has been dropped 1lb for that effort, keeping him neatly in this realistic grade, and he could easily fare better from a decent draw at his second attempt here.

Other selections at Wolverhampton include: 5.50 Seas Of Elzaam, 6.50 Termonator, 7.20 Greystoke


Pleasant Man catches the eye at the Berkshire track, in the Free Tips Daily On attheraces.com Novice Stakes (2.40).

Roger Charlton's colt is one of two who must concede a winner's penalty, and he appeals as the obvious pick of the pair.

He scored comfortably as favourite on debut at Haydock in September, before heading for the Group Two Royal Lodge Stakes at Newmarket three weeks later.

Pleasant Man was last of five throughout there, but beaten little more than four lengths and therefore sets a lofty standard as he seeks to justify his Dante and Derby entries - with the move up from a mile to 10 furlongs highly likely to help him.

Windsor's other fancies include: 1.40 Spring Is Sprung, 2.10 Aish, 3.10 Going Underground, 3.40 The Lamplighter, 4.10 Fiordland, 4.40 Heaven Forfend.


Super Over is of obvious interest in the Every Race Live On Racing TV Novice Median Auction Stakes (2.20).

Archie Watson's promising colt has acquired cheekpieces since failing by just a short head on debut over this trip at Newcastle in November, and the headgear will be of assistance.

Others to keep an eye on at Redcar include: 1.50 May Blossom, 2.50 Mr Excellency, 3.20 Kettle Hill, 3.50 Jack Kennedy, 4.25 Chase The Dollar, 5.00 Contrast, 5.30 Spantik.


Over the jumps, former point-to-point winner Powerstown Park is likely to be very popular on his switch to fences after three very easy handicap hurdle wins last month.

But Iconic Muddle's hurdles form was at least as good last year, and he too has always looked as if fences will suit. They both go in the Racing TV Novices' Handicap Chase (2.00)

Other Huntingdon selections include: 1.00 Emma Lamb, 1.30 Undisputed, 2.30 Olympic Conqueror, 3.00 Misstree Song, 3.30 Go Steady, 4.00 Mackie Dee, 4.30 Samatian.
