Horse Racing betting tips: Gwennie May Boy eyeing Ludlow joy

There are five meetings taking place across Britain on Tuesday and Racing Post tipster Graeme Rodway returns with his best bets.

3.25 Lingfield

Solanna @ SP
1pt win

4.50 Ludlow

Gwennie May Boy @ SP
1pt win

7.00 Ludlow

Kincardine @ SP
1pt win

Solanna set for quick follow-up 

The Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 Handicap (3.25) at Lingfield looks like a good opportunity for 1000 Guineas-winning rider Oisin Murphy to continue his good recent form on SOLANNA

The four-year-old has steadily returned to top form for John Butler recently and followed a good third over 1m4f at Kempton in April with a wide-margin victory at Yarmouth last week. 

Murphy was in the saddle that day and Solanna went through the race like a class act before putting it to bed with an impressive turn of foot. 

He was so strong at the finish that he came five lengths clear of the runner-up McTed and gets in under a 5lb penalty for that 1m2f win. 

That was a stronger race than this and the only worry is the different track. However, Solanna is a three-time winner on the Polytrack at Kempton and that gives hope he can handle the same surface back at Lingfield. If he can, he should be capable of following up that success.

Gwennie May Boy can land first handicap 

The Lorna Brooke Amateur Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle (4.50) kicks off the evening fixture at Ludlow and GWENNIE MAY BOY appears to have strong claims for top trainer Jonjo O’Neill. 

The five-year-old comes into this unexposed in handicaps after just three runs in such races and he put his sole poor run at Sandown two starts ago behind him at Chepstow last time. 

Gwennie May Boy was beaten 18 lengths into fourth, but he travelled powerfully through that race and was bang in contention before weakening only in the closing stages of the race. 

He goes up another two furlongs in trip here, but this is a much sharper track than Chepstow and it should suit a good-traveller like him. 

The better ground should also be in Gwennie May Boy’s favour and I’m expecting a jolt of improvement for this entirely different test. 

Rider A J O’Neill is good value for his 5lb claim against fellow amateur jockeys like this and the selection may not get a better chance to break his duck in handicaps than he has here.

Take Kincardine to record a right royal success 

The King and Queen have a good chance to land the G.C.Rickards Ltd Handicap Hurdle (7.00) at Ludlow a day after Coronation weekend with the in-form hurdler Kincardine. 

The Nicky Henderson-trained six-year-old had some smart form as a novice at Newbury last year. He won a maiden at the track on his first start of 2022 and was only five lengths behind Pull Again Green next time. 

That rival is now rated 129 and Kincardine runs off 116 in this. The reason for his drop in the weights are two poor efforts when pulled up at this track, and Uttoxeter, at the start of this year but Henderson gave his runner a breathing operation after and his first run following the surgery resulted in a victory at Exeter last month in headgear. 

He is open to plenty of further improvement on just his second start after the operation and the cheekpieces that worked a treat last time are also back on. Nico de Boinville is here for the ride and Kincardine looks capable of following up last month’s win for his top stable.
