June 10 Racing Tips: Bethersden Boy to triumph at Newbury?

There's a busy day of racing at Newbury, Haydock, Yarmouth and Nottingham for our Planet Sport tipsters to get involved with on Thursday June 10.

Boost you weekly coffers with some winners from our selection of tips below.

1.15 Newbury - Bethersden Boy

Bethersden Boy was a 25-1 winner on his debut at Newmarket for Richard Hughes, but there appeared to be no fluke about it.

The former champion jockey is not known for first-time-out winners. But when they do manage to win on their first appearance they tend to be quite smart - Brentford Hope is a case in point.

Bethersden Boy beat a previous winner from the all-conquering George Boughey juvenile team quite convincingly - and back in third was Sovereign Prince, who takes him on again, this time on 7lb better terms.

However, Bethersden Boy is just as much entitled to come on again - so the Godolphin runner will need every bit of help he can get to close the gap.

2.55 Newbury - Auria

Andrew Balding's Auria looks sure to be suited by stepping up in trip for the Betfair British EBF Stakes.

The Listed event over 10 furlongs was formerly run as the Ballymacoll Stud Stakes, and it is perfect timing for those fillies for whom the Oaks at Epsom comes just a little too soon.

In recent years, the race has produced plenty of smart winners, probably none more so than William Haggas' Sea Of Class - who took it before winning the Irish Oaks and coming oh so close to denying Enable in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe of 2018.

At first glance there may appear to be nothing of her calibre in this year's field - but the best thing about this game is you just never know for sure if a rising star is about to shine.

Auria has looked very promising in her light career to date, winning at the second time of asking at Kempton, and she took a big step forward first time out this year in a conditions event at Ascot.

She was catching the winner Creative Flair all the way to the line over a mile - and while the pair meet again on the same terms, the extra two furlongs can help her close the gap - which was a length and a half.

Creative Flair has subsequently run well at York behind Ed Walker's hugely impressive filly Primo Bacio, with the highly-regarded Snow Lantern in third, but she does not appear to be crying out for 10 furlongs like Auria - who is also a half-sister to the smart Beat The Bank.

Others to keep an eye on at Newbury: 1.45 Spice Store, 2.20 Evident Beauty, 3.30 Naval Commander, 4.05 Sunset, 4.40 Reina Del Mar, 5.10 Mrs Meader

6.00 Haydock - Tardis

Michael Bell's Tardis was well backed for her debut at Yarmouth, and in the end did well to finish second.

Slowly away, the bird had flown in the shape of Ed Dunlop's Bellarena Lady, who had been tried in Listed company last time out, by the time the penny dropped.

Tardis did well to eventually pass 10 others before finishing second, but she will be wiser in the racingtv.com EBF Restricted Novice Stakes at Haydock.

7.00 Haydock - I'm A Gambler

Mark Johnston's I'm A Gambler has been unfortunate to bump into what look two above average recruits in his two starts to date.

At Yarmouth on debut he beat all bar Tolstoy - who is heading to Royal Ascot for the Gosdens - while Richard Hannon's Al Shibli, who ran well in a hot race on his debut at Newbury, had too much for him at Chester.

James Tate's King Of Gold was only a neck behind the selection at Yarmouth, and is entitled to come on for his debut, but the Johnston colt should put his greater experience to good use in the Broad Oak Novice Stakes.

Other Haydock hunches include: 6.30 Ventura Express, 7.30 Caradoc, 8.00 Richard R H B, 8.30 Wink Of An Eye, 9.00 Action Hero.

4.20 Yarmouth - Ariel

Ariel can land the hat-trick in the Visit attheraces.com/marketmovers Handicap.

Having shown only glimpses of talent in his first four runs, he got off the mark at Kempton in early May from a handicap rating of 67 - and then followed up very impressively at Ripon from 4lb higher.

He carries a 6lb penalty for that win but is 3lb well in, because the handicapper actually raised him 9lb.

Others to fancy ay Yarmouth: 1.25 Priscilla's Wish, 2.00 Beryl The Peril, 2.35 Pagan, 3.10 Celestial Point, 3.45 Aria Rose, 4.55 Bearwith, 5.30 Tukhoom.

2.45 Nottingham - Muscika

Muscika went close last week when beaten only a neck at Epsom - and while he has crept back up the weights, David O'Meara's sprinter should take the beating in the Download The MansionBet App Handicap at Nottingham.

Other Nottingham selections: 1.00 King's Guard, 1.35 Satono Chevalier, 2.10 Didtheyleavuoutto, 3.20 Brazen Bolt, 3.55 Hail Sezer, 4.30 Mere Green, 5.00 Turn Of Phrase
