Sunday Racing at Carlisle
Carlisle Racecourse will be hosting races this Sunday in what looks like the pick of the day’s race meetings. There are a number of horses that appear well placed to gain a breakthrough win. Today we will be looking at four horses that we believe will are the best bets of the day.
Head over to Bet365 to get the best prices on today’s racing at Carlisle.
Dr Phibes (Race 1)
Our first pick of the day is the Alan Swinbank trained two-year-old Dr Phibes. Dr Phibes was very unlucky to place second at its last start finishing just a short-head behind Ginger Goose at long odds. The horse missed the start and did extremely well to chase down the leading group and get close to winning. Dr Phibes drops down in weights and looks well set to break its maiden against what looks like a fairly ordinary field.
Kay Gee Bee (Race 3)
Despite now being an 8-year-old Kay Gee Bee appears to be in close to career best form. Kay Gee Bee stayed on strongly to win by a very impressive five lengths at his last start at Doncaster, in a race that he never looked like losing. The gelding will be asked to carry 9 stone 10 pounds but has won carrying this weight before. The one query on the horse is the fact that he has not recorded back to back wins since 2007. However, I still think he is the horse to beat in this race and one of the best bets of the day. The main dangers look likely to be Fishforcompliments and Abidhabidubai.
Moment of Time (Race 5)
The Andrew Balding trained four-year-old Moment of Time is a very good chance to break his maiden in the 5th race today. Moment of Time has gone close to winning in all of its first six starts without breaking through. The mare has a class edge over the rest of the field and is very well weighted (9-7) carrying five pounds less than the top weight Dancing Paddy. The biggest competition is likely to come from Vital Calling and Warcrown but if Moment of Time runs to her potential it should not even be close.
Springheel Jake (Race 7)
Despite running last at his last start 3-year-old Springheel Jake is the horse to beat in the last race today. Springheel Jake drops significantly in class, back to a level where he has been victorious in the past. The gelding has been consistent since returning to the races in May. He was unlucky not to win at Ripon first up, ran on well second up and was probably just outclassed in his last run at Redcar. Now that he is back in a class that suits there is no reason that Springheel Jake can’t record the second win of his short career. The one main danger is the heavily raced Fayr Fall who won a fortnight ago at Wolverhampton. Fayr Fall often performs well after a fortnight break and has proven staying ability.
