Boy of the Bondi tipped for success at twilight Beverley meeting
North Yorkshire sprinter Bondi Beach Boy, who has been an absolute revelation this season, can take advantage of an extra twilight meeting at his favourite venue Beverley tomorrow on a day when northern enthusiasts can also focus on an afternoon fixture at Redcar.
Trained by Jimmy Turner, who has placed him impeccably, Bondi Beach Boy has won a remarkable seven of his ten starts this term, having failed to get his head in front last season in three outings.
Four of those seven wins have been gained at Beverley, a course which seems to suit him down to the ground. Bondi Beach Boy is back there tomorrow for the featured £12,000 Bet & Watch With Racing UK’s App Handicap and, despite having soared up the ratings, is fancied to take all the beating under P J McDonald, who has struck up an excellent rapport with the gelding.
The Kevin Ryan-trained George The First has shaped well in his two starts to date and looks a winner waiting to happen before the end of the season.
Opportunity may come knocking for the juvenile in the opening Race Horse Trader Xtra Maiden Stakes.
The promising My History (5.05), trained by Mark Johnston and narrowly denied at Brighton on his debut, and recent Epsom winner Lunar Deity (6.10), who represents Eve Johnson-Houghton and Kieren Fallon, are two others to note on the Westwood.
At Redcar, El McGlynn is sportingly napped to lift the honours in the Weatherbys Bank Foreign Exchange Handicap.
Trained by Eric Alston, the four-year-old has taken time to come to hand this season, but he showed definite promise when a close-up fourth at Thirsk on his latest outing to suggest he is worthy of interest in this six-furlongs dash. Neil Farley has the mount.
Julie Camacho has booked Willie Twiston-Davies for My Single Malt in the Racing Replay, Sky 432 Apprentice Handicap.
The five-year-old is fairly talented but not easy to win with, but he was far from disgraced at Chester last time and it is interesting that he is now equipped with a visor for the first time.
In the Congratulations Mr & Mrs Rigg Handicap, Jan Smuts, who has been running well lately, is selected to make it third-time-lucky after finishing runner-up on his last two starts.
Hydrant, who has been a model of consistency this season, can not be left out of calculations in the Watch Racing UK On Sky 432 Handicap, while Dutiful Son, who ran only once last season as a juvenile, makes the journey from Jeremy Noseda’s Newmarket stable to contest the Harry Froom Birthday Celebration Maiden Stakes.
• Today’s nap is Mizyen (Brighton 4.00), a recent course and distance winner.
2.00 Yajamila, 2.30 Another Royal, 3.00 Garfunkel, 3.30 El McGlynn (NAP), 4.00 Hydrant, 4.30 Dutiful Son, 5.00 Jan Smuts, 5.30 My Single Malt.
4.35 George The First, 5.05 My History, 5.40 Bondi Beach Boy, 6.10 Lunar Deity, 6.40 Fair Flutter, 7.10 Moral Issue.
Tomorrow’s other meetings: Leicester and Worcester.
