Beverley best bets: Course specialist Park Street looks strong, Patontheback for each-way value

There’s a decent card to enjoy at Beverley on Tuesday afternoon, and this lively handicap over an extended seven furlongs should give race-goers plenty to cheer about in the June sunshine.

14:47 Beverley: Tomahawk Steakhouse Handicap  (7 furlongs 96 yards)

In-form jockey Billy Loughnane is looking to follow his Royal Ascot exploits on board a couple of well-fancied favourites at Beverley, kicking off with Giorgio M, who followed up a maiden win at Musselburgh in May with a very good second of 12 in a Newmarket handicap a fortnight later.

George Boughey’s promising three-year-old holds solid claims now back up to his winning distance, but he is likely to be hard pushed by Park Street, who won this race last year.

Indeed, the Tina Jackson-trained five-year-old has done most of his best work at Beverley, with seven of his last outings coming at this venue, including a second victory last September over a longer trip in stronger 0-80 company.

Following an eight-month lay-off, he was here again for his season debut in a 13-runner handicap over this trip 17 days ago, and quickly picked up where he had left off, finding only the short-priced favourite too good on the day, despite having to switch to make room in the latter stages.

The winner and his four closest rivals that day were all rated higher than anything he will face in this lower 0-75 affair, and Phil Dennis should be steering Park Street into contention again here. 

Suggested best bet: Park Street in the 14:47 at Beverley


Beyond the market leaders, Vince Le Prince looks an interesting outsider for Tim Easterby, but getting the each-way seal of approval in the Tipstrr camp is Patontheback, whose form has taken a leap in the right direction now that underfoot conditions are firming up.

Three inauspicious outings in early spring were soon forgotten when Gemma Tutty’s six-year-old cruised to victory on Catterick’s good-to-firm ground in early June, and he only had to wait five days to better that performance with a career-best success on similar fast going at Musselburgh.

The handicapper has been quick to strike, of course, but the manner in which Patontheback eased two and a half lengths clear of his eight rivals last time suggests that he should be able to absorb the six-pound hike.

Rowan Scott was at the reins for both of those wins, and they are available at a decent price to make the each-way frame, and maybe even complete a memorable hat-trick.
