Ulshaw Bridge
Racecard

Sweet Believer is the one they’ve all got to beat. He heads here in search of the hat-trick after scooting up over course and distance last time, but with eight runners in the field and an open looking contest behind him, it could be worth playing something each-way. Ulshaw Bridge finished fourth at Carlisle last time in what looks like a decent race for the grade. That was his first run in a few months, so he’s entitled to improve for it. He’s off a winning mark here and finished second on his only other previous run at the track off 10lb higher, so looks in with a chance at the weights. He looks a little too big in the betting currently.


Scottish Summit
Racecard

There’s a fair bit of pace on here, with both Aquaman and Thunder Of Niagara likely to battle it out for the lead. That hints at a strong gallop and it could suit something coming off the pace. Scottish Summit has won over 10f round here so stamina will be no issue and arrives here in good form. He was a little unlucky at York last time, having to wait for the gaps to arrive before getting his run and was just collared close to home by a couple of late closers. His mark of 95 does leave him slightly vulnerable to an improver, but he’s a consistent sort and should be there or thereabouts.


Eeh Bah Gum
Racecard

Having come down the weights and dropping down in grade here, this looks like a good opportunity for Eeh Bah Gum to get back to winning ways. Without a win since landing a valuable handicap at York in August 2018, Tim Easterby’s charge is now rated 19lb lower in the handicap and there have been hints of a revival recently. He probably should have won at Nottingham a few starts back but hung left late on and just hasn’t had the breaks in races. With the talented Ella McCain claiming 5lb, he certainly looks weighted to go well here.


Forza Orta
Racecard

Bashosh looks like an exciting prospect for the Varian stable having scored on his first two starts, but giving away over a stone to Forza Orta he could find it difficult here. Finishing second on his first three starts, Kevin Ryan’s charge has been a little frustrating to follow. He finished less than a couple of lengths behind Mahrajaan last time out who subsequently scored by nine lengths and they were a long way clear of the third. 76 for his handicap debut looks very lenient to our eye and he looks the value here.


About Redcar Racecourse

Based in North Yorkshire, Redcar’s perfectly flat track was opened in 1870. It is a left-handed oval shaped course with tight bends making positioning critical. It is widely believed that Redcar is the only racecourse in the UK with a perfectly “Straight Mile” that is level.

The racecourse is situated one mile from the beach which makes it a wonderful escape for a weekend. Redcar hosts the Zetland Gold Cup in May, the Two-Year-Old Trophy in October which is also on the same day as the Guisborough Stakes. The well-known Limato was a previous winner of the Two-Year-Old Trophy.
