June 11 Racing Tips: The Whipmaster to crack the field at Sandown

Planet Sport tipster Luke Elder is back to give you a helping hand in finding a winner at Sandown, Goodwood and York on Friday June 11.

Get your weekend off to the perfect start by finding some winners from Ross' selection below.

2.10 Sandown - The Whipmaster/Ower Starlight

Elder says: "The 2.10 at Sandown is the Thames Ditton Handicap, a seven furlong contest. It looks wide open as normal - plenty of chances in this race, including The Whipmaster for Gary Moore and Ryan Moore.

"Looked very well handicapped last time around when winning at Windsor, that didn't really tell the whole story; was very snug at the line, things didn't overly go right - had to come a bit wider than ideal over at Windsor. The near-side rail has very much been the place to be in recent times and also historically as well.

"But, I think The Whipmaster has plenty more in hand. Yes, he's dropping down from a mile to seven furlongs, that turn of foot we saw last time around, I don't think that's any sort of issue.

"And, quite rarely, we're going to go double-handed in this contest. The Whipmaster being one of them, we're going to also side with Ower Starlight who the last twice things haven't exactly gone right in novice and maiden company.

"At Lingfield a couple of starts ago was a big price with Katherine Begley on board. I thought ran a very good race back in third place.

"And fourth last time at Salisbury, that wasn't a bad run whatsoever, probably in a pretty decent contest for the grade.

"I do think on handicap debut [ Ower Starlight] is very much of interest. Katherine Begley is a seven pound claimer, who's rather inexperienced of recent years. We've seen her around in the past a fair bit, but Hollie Doyle does take over. That's going to be a positive, and I do think Ower Starlight could potentially run a big race at a big price.

"So, The Whipmaster and Ower Starlight for myself in the 2.10 at Sandown."

4.35 York - Gabrial The Wire

Elder says: "The 4.35 at York is a seven furlong handicap, one that's going to be very, very tough, so why not come up with a selection in this race?

"But a horse I've followed for a little while now, waiting for him to get optimum conditions - which is today - on a track that isn't Chester, more of a galloping track over seven furlongs.

"Gabrial The Wire, I thought could go fairly close.

"He's likely going to be a big price, because he has been running at Chester, which is a track that yes he has run at in the past, he doesn't overly like though.

"He was well beaten at Kempton a couple of starts ago, that was just a lesser effort.

"The last time we actually saw Gabriel The Wire on turf over seven furlongs at a track that wasn't Chester, he managed to win.

"That was at Musselburgh - again a track that I'm not overly convinced really suited him down to the ground.

"But I do think York will help. He'll be a big price with Paul Hanagan on board. Richard Fahey teaming up with Paul Hanagan, and I think Gabrial The Wire can go fairly close.

"From an each way standpoint at the very least.

"Take a look at those towards the head of the market, I do think Paxos could run ok - he's been in good form as of late. As has Danielsflyer as well, they're the form horses coming into this contest.

"But, we'll take a chance with Gabrial The Wire."

6.25 Goodwood - Kelmscott

Elder says: "Time to focus now on the 6.25 over at Goodwood, a handicap just shy of 10 furlongs, and one that brings into the race plenty of interesting form-lines, the likes of Kelmscott who will be the selection.

"Last time around, [Kelmscott] ran a very good race at Leicester, when finishing back in fourth.

"Was never nearer on that occasion, but that day at Leicester, and in recent history actually, Leicester has been more of a front runners track.

"So, that was against Kelmscott, it was exactly the same at Epsom the time before that, but it was into handicap company last time around.

"I do think Kelmscott is a bit better than that. And the Menuisier yard are going ok at the moment. They had Blue Cup of course win for us at the Epsom Derby meeting, but I do think David Egan could get a good tune out of Kelmscott. There's much better to come from this individual of the Menuisier yard.

"Main danger? That might come in the form of Kornflake, who we didn't really see the best of last year. There was a good word going for him though on debut and also second start.

"That was when with the Karl Burke yard, now with Mark Johnston, I do think that could be a bit of a positive move.

"And hopefully we see a bit more from Kornflake, but that might be a little bit further down the line.

"For now, we'll side with Kelmscott, I do think he can get the job done in the 6.25 at Goodwood."
