August 15 Racing Tips: Teqany and Tadreeb to dominate at Pontefract

Planet Sport tipsters have outlined five naps from meetings at Pontefract, Chelmsford and Southwell on Sunday, August 15.

The weekend is coming to an end so why not bolster your coffers with the following selections…

3.45 Pontefract - Tadreeb

Tadreeb can continue on an upward curve with victory in the William Hill Pick Your Places Handicap.

The three-year-old has only finished out of the places in one of his six outings to date, on his initial outing at the backend of last year, but he has acquitted himself well so far in 2021.

Placed on his first couple of outings, Tadreeb finally hit the target at Thirsk in June, winning in convincing style, before inexperience just let him down a bit in a tight finish at Musselburgh later that month.

Upped to a mile from seven furlongs, Tadreeb showed he definitely got the trip in third and his current mark of 86 gives Mark Johnston something to work with.

4.20 Pontefract - Teqany

Teqany has translated some of his jumps ability to the Flat this term and the Moor Top Farm Shop Hemsworth Handicap looks another good opportunity.

Grade Two-placed over hurdles, Teqany fell short on his first couple of runs before getting his head in front at Chepstow last month.

He made all under Dougie Costello and it proved a smart front-running ride as runner-up Retrospect never really looked like getting back terms.

Teqany has gone up 3lb for that win, which should not be insurmountable for Fergal O'Brien's runner.

3.35 Chelmsford - Star Seeking

Soft ground at Goodwood scuppered a run for Star Seeking, but she can gain some compensation in the Fairwood Fillies' Handicap at Chelmsford.

A first-time-out winner for Sir Michael Stoute last September, Star Seeking did appear again until claiming second in a novice event at Nottingham last month.

That half-length defeat reads quite well, with Star Seeking giving the winner 7lb as well as slightly compromising her chances when refusing to settle through the early stages.

Star Seeking now moves to handicap company and she can take the chance to shine.

3.00 Chelmsford - Duke Of Prussia

Duke Of Prussia failed to sparkle on his most recent outing, but given a couple of weeks out of competitive action by Sir Mark Prescott, he can resume winning ways in the tote.co.uk Live Streaming Every UK Race Handicap.

A six-length winner at Wolverhampton in July, he was sent off a short price to follow up back at that track six days later, but Duke Of Prussia was even ran out of second in the closing stages, having to settle for third.

A 9lb hike is clearly not ideal, but perhaps the quick turnaround was not for him.

2.45 Southwell - Excessable

Excessable gets one last chance on Southwell's Fibresand in the Firewall Ltd Handicap.

The surface is being replaced after Sunday's meeting and given Excessable has winning form on the track, he looks a runner likely to miss the challenge it provided.

Successful twice in 10 outings there, most recently in February, Excessable should put up another good show for Tim Easterby.
