July 18 Racing Tips: Hear Me Roar going for another win at Redcar

The Planet Sport tipsters have slapped on the sunscreen and are ready for meetings at Redcar and over the jumps at Stratford on Sunday, July 18.

We've left our tips on the patio for most of the day so they are red hot. Maybe you can find some winners among them.

2.15 Redcar - Hear Me Roar

Hear Me Roar can give his supporters something to shout about again at Redcar in the Sky Bet Extra Places Every Day Handicap.

Michael Dods' three-year-old put up a much-improved effort as a course-and-distance winner last month, on his first start since November.

Hear Me Roar took the measure of a consistent and well-backed opponent that day, and returns exactly a month later in search of a repeat performance.

He has already proved himself in the anticipated conditions, winning with authority in the style of a progressive horse on good to firm ground last time.

In the circumstances, a 5lb rise in the ratings appears far from punitive, and it will be no surprise to see him follow up his breakthrough victory.

3.25 Redcar - Orchid Rose

Orchid Rose is still seeking her first win after seven starts - but she was beaten only a length at long odds last time, and may be able to break her duck in the Racing TV Handicap.

Andrew Crook's daughter of Mehmas has run her best races to date on a sound surface, so this weekend's forecast sunshine can only help.

She is up 2lb for her improved effort back at this minimum trip at Ripon a month ago - and although that form has yet to be augmented by the two who finished in front of her, it was a step in the right direction which puts her in the mix at this modest level.

Other fancies at Redcar: 1.10 Aristobulus, 1.45 Flippin' Eck, 2.50 Wentworth Falls, 4.00 Embolden, 4.35 Rocket Rod, 5.10 Justified

2.30 Stratford - Wbee

Wbee has fine prospects of completing his hat-trick in the Peter Allsopp From Bell Green Coventry Memorial Handicap Hurdle.

Gary Hanmer's gelding was a convincing winner over this course and distance in April, before following up in a decent race at Cartmel a month later.

The handicapper has been alerted, of course, but does not appear to have reacted excessively.

3.40 Stratford - Us And Them

Us And Them is an unlikely but compelling candidate in the Mark & Jackie Nixon Ruby Wedding Handicap Chase.

The eight-year-old's only previous trips to Britain from Joseph O'Brien's County Kilkenny base have been five times to Cheltenham and once to Aintree - where he was a close second at Grade One level in 2019.

He has not quite been at his best over slightly further than this of late but has still ran well enough to suggest he should have this decent field covered from the top of the weights, with the forecast good ground no detriment to his chances.

Other Stratford selections: 1.57 Dylan's Sea Song, 3.05 Don't Ask, 4.15 Chez Hans, 4.50 Getabuck, 5.25 Old Duke
