Leicester Tips: Ziryab to shed the maiden tag

Leicester Tips: Ziryab to shed the maiden tag

Racing returns to Leicester on Tuesday afternoon, with seven contests scheduled at the East Midlands track.

The card in Oadby is one of four meetings on Tuesday, with Southwell hosting Jumps action in the afternoon, while later on, all-weather racing comes from Lingfield and they go out seven times at Wetherby.

After the recent warm weather, the going is expected to be good to firm, and we have picked out three tips which all look to have a solid chance after some recent impressive outings.

Leicester Betting Tips

  • 14:00 – Hurt You Never @ 10/11
  • 15:00 – Shazam @ 6/4
  • 16:00 – Ziryab @ 2/1

Date: Tuesday 6th June
Time: First race at 14:00
Location: Oadby, Leicester, Leicestershire

14:00 – Hurt You Never @ 10/11

Connections of Hurt You Never will make the trip to the East Midlands in confident mood, with Adrian Nicholls’ charge winning last time out.

The four-year-old was on top at Redcar on May 30 and those around him are clearly hoping to strike while the iron is hot.

Hurt You Never has won twice already this year, with Nicholls and his team celebrating a 16/1 success at Newcastle in March.

Nicholls’ runner will need to saddle a penalty, but the manner of that win at Redcar was so impressive it is hard to ignore his form.

15:00 – Shazam @ 6/4

A step up in trip to one mile two furlongs suited Shazam last time out, when the three-year-old won on her handicap debut at Lingfield a week ago.

Shazam endured a slow start to her career, finishing sixth, eighth and seventh, but trainer Kevin Philippart De Foy got the best out of his runner at the second time of asking, with the daughter of Almanzor joining his stable in March.

A 6lb penalty for that win at Lingfield may worry punters, but there should be more to come from this runner at Leicester.

Horse Racing Odds

16:00 – Ziryab @ 2/1

John and Thady Gosden’s stable are in good form of late, winning eight times last week, including the Betfred Oaks and Coronation Cup at Epsom Downs.

Part of their focus on Tuesday will be on Leicester as Ziryab runs for the third time under rules.

The three-year-old made his debut in April at Yarmouth, finishing fourth behind Bear On The Loose, before Mostabshir got the better of him at York in May.

That performance on the Knavesmire was progressive and he appears to be an improving type. At the third time of asking, the son of Kingman should have too much class, especially when his last run at York came against tougher opposition.

The drop in class should suit and as long as he keeps Charlie Appleby’s Theatre Honours at bay, none of the others should threaten.
