Ripon each-way racing tip: Roundhay Park can bounce back in conditions set to suit

Rounding off a busy Friday at the races, our partners from the Tipstrr office have been studying their data to provide us with one of their most popular selections from Ripon’s evening meeting.

19:15 Ripon:  Traditional Family Day Sunday 19th May Handicap (6 furlongs)

Fortamour is likely to be sent off as the bookies’ favourite as a five-time course-distance winner, including last time out three weeks ago, when Ben Haslam’s eight-year-old saw off a dozen rivals in testing ground here.

He will evidently be the one to beat, but fellow-top-weight Another Baar has the credentials to do so if able to replicate last season’s winning season debut here as he turns up fresh from almost eight months’ away from the track.

Sam England’s Trilby arrives as the in-form horse having landed wins at Catterick and Haydock over the last five weeks, but both of those were in testing muddy conditions that will be absent on Friday night.

Tipstrr’s pundits have been looking for each-way value deeper in the betting, where bottom weight Havana Rum could be useful on the improving ground after looking like he needed to blow a few cobwebs away on his first two outings in heavy going last month.

The final nod from the Tipstrr collective goes to Nigel Tinkler’s seasoned campaigner, Roundhay Park, who is looking to add to his 12 career successes.

Suggested best bet: Roundhay Park in the 19:15 at Ripon

Two of those wins came last summer, with the most recent coming over this very course and distance last August (four outings ago), when he kept on strongly in the final stages to hold onto his lead more comfortably than the half-length winning margin suggests, with his 16 rivals strung out behind him.

He was last seen looking unsuited by Doncaster’s soft ground in a 16-runner handicap a fortnight ago, when the early pace saw him weaken in the final furlong.

However, it’s worth noting that all of the eight horses ahead of him that day were rated higher than anything he will face in this lower-class 0-80 affair, and he should give Faye McManoman a much more competitive ride in more suitable conditions.
