Leicester best bet (1525): Recent winner Yippee can give punters more to cheer about

Leicester racecourse provides a decent card on Tuesday afternoon, and there's enough quality in this competitive handicap to suggest the warm favourite won't have things all her own way.

The morning withdrawal of Amancio has left David Menuisier’s French raider Ashariba as an even firmer favourite, and after showing promise on her return to action at Goodwood 25 days ago, she certainly looks to have every chance of carrying Oisin Murphy into the winner’s enclosure here.

Husband and wife duo Tom Marquand and Hollie Doyle will fancy their chances of bringing a marital squabble into proceedings on board Rogue Raider and Tipsy Tiger respectively, but the horse to have caught the collective eye of Tipstrr’s racing pundits is Charlie Johnston’s top-weighted Yippee.

A modest four-race winter campaign on all-weather tracks was soon laid to rest when this clearly capable gelding felt real turf under his hooves, kicking off with a respectable runner-up spot as a 12/1 shot behind odds-on favourite Cambria Legend early this month.

That outing provided the springboard for a career-best performance just four days ago at Ripon, where he took control approaching the final furlong and could have won by even more than his comfortable 2¾-length margin, had Franny Norton not eased him up in the final strides.

The manner of that impressive win over this same distance did not escape the wrath of the handicapper, who has promptly slapped a six-pound penalty on Yippee’s back, but he clearly had plenty left in the locker on Friday, and assuming he is none the worse for the quick turnaround, then he should be breathing down Ashariba’s neck (or vice versa) on the run-in here.

Suggested best bet: Yippee each-way in the 15:25 at Leicester
