Racing Tips: Can Ryan Moore complete a Lady Wulfruna Stakes hat-trick?
Odds, tips and preview for today’s racing
The racing world may have one eye firmly on next week’s Cheltenham Festival but there’s still plenty of action to get excited about this weekend.
ITV Racing are on the move once again and they’re sending their teams to cover the best races at Wolverhampton and Ayr.
With six races on offer on ITV from 13:00, we’ve previewed the best of the action…
Via Serendipity – 13:35 Wolverhampton
Renewing his rivalry with Fox Power, Via Serendipity is targeting a second successive win at Wolverhampton. The six-year-old won by half a length last month after biding his time to overtake towards the finish.
Fox Power leads the betting as favourite but Via Serendipity will be looking to get off to a good start on his first ride under Silvestre De Sousa.
With two wins and a second place in his last four races, trainer Stuart Williams will be confident of Via Serendipity hacking up for the fourth time in his 10 all-weather outings.
Calle Malva – 14:30 Ayr
Expectations were high of Calle Malva in her last ride at Ayr and she led early before pulling up. She returns to Scotland and a comfortable start could lead to a second career win in just her fourth race.
Calle Malva is enjoying some stability having been ridden by Blair Campbell in her last three outings, including in December when she crossed the line first by a quarter of a length at Hexham.
But she’ll face stiff competition from Jessiemac, who’s recorded two wins and a second in her last three rides.
Urban Icon – 14:45 Wolverhampton
Perhaps a left-field choice considering Urban Icon hasn’t won a race since 2018. But he’ll be fit and raring to go having not ridden competitively since last July.
He’ll face a strong field in the Lady Wulfruna Stakes but under the guidance of Ryan Moore, he should fare better.
Moore is targeting his third win in the race having ridden Second Thought to glory in 2018.
