Racing Tips June 20: Yesyes to make it two from two at Pontefract

Planet Sport tipsters have climbed off their Royal Ascot cloud and are back down to earth with tips at Pontefract and Worcester on Sunday June 20.

Shake off your Royal Ascot hangover with some winners from our hot selection below.

1.45 Pontefract - Almohandesah

Almohandesah can kick on from her debut second, in the Northern Commercials Iveco 'X' Way Tipper EBF Fillies' Restricted Novice Stakes.

Beaten nearly four lengths at Redcar, it took a while for the penny to drop for this daughter of Postponed. But when it did she finished with purpose, and the experience will stand her in good stead.

2.55 Pontefract - Turandot

Turandot can return to form as she switches back up to a mile in the Volkswagen Van Centre (West Yorkshire) Ltd Fillies' Handicap.

A steady gallop did not play to her strengths over seven furlongs at Haydock last time - and while she won over that distance on her seasonal return, she basically outstayed her rival that day.

The form of that Haydock run got a significant boost on Thursday when winner Highfield Princess powered home at Royal Ascot, so Turandot is certainly not one to discount yet.

3.25 Pontefract - Golden Pass

Golden Pass can claim an all-important black-type success in the Sky Bet Pontefract Castle Fillies' Stakes at the Yorkshire track.

Hugo Palmer's filly has been only lightly raced to date, with connections seemingly taking a patient approach - which can pay dividends in her four-year-old campaign.

Golden Pass was a promising third on her only juvenile outing in 2019 and she was quickly off the mark last term, triumphing in a Beverley maiden - with the two fillies directly behind also subsequent winners to give the form a weighty feel.

She followed up with an all-the-way victory in a Windsor novice last September and was not disgraced when fourth in a Newmarket Listed heat, racing from an unfavourable position and beaten a fair way over 12 furlongs.

The daughter of Golden Horn certainly made amends on her 2021 return, though, recording a neat success in a Thirsk handicap despite having to be switched to make her challenge before eventually prevailing by three-quarters of a length over a similarly promising rival.

The time of that race was decent - and while Golden Pass has a bit to find on the official ratings, she appeals as a filly on the upgrade.

4.55 Pontefract - Yesyes

Yesyes impressed when beating Eileendover on her racecourse bow, and she can make it two from two in the David Wildon Marching On Together Memorial Novice Stakes.

Despite being slow to break, she did not lose too much ground and clearly knew her job as she picked up the lead with a couple of furlongs to run before staying on really nicely to triumph by two and a quarter lengths.

That was over just short of 12 furlongs, and this trip looks to suit perfectly.

3.35 Worcester - Man Of Light

Man Of Light made it third time lucky for Philip Hobbs at Bangor recently, and can follow up in the Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap Hurdle.

The four-year-old had shown promise in two previous outings, but came good in style as he made all for an 11-length verdict.

He now qualifies for a handicap mark, and 112 leaves his handler a bit to work with.

4.05 Worcester - Fix Sun

Fix Sun is the pick in Worcester's Free Tips Daily On Handicap Hurdle.

He looked a classy individual as a novice hurdler, but did not fire at all last winter - after having wind surgery over the summer months.

Given a bit of time off following an unsuccessful November spin, he reaped the benefits of that decision as he returned with an impressive Warwick success last month.

Hiked 7lb for that comfortable seven-and-a-half-length verdict, Fix Sun should be able to meet the challenge now that he is back on track.
