The 2020 Every Race Live On RacingTV Autumn Sprint Handicap takes place at Leicester Racecourse on Tuesday 6 October. The race is a class 2 handicap over 5-furlongs that is set to be run on soft-heavy ground and it has attracted a field of 7 runners.
Blue De Vega was in fine form in July and August when he recorded a hat-trick of wins off marks ranging between 83-93. He’s run respectably behind better horses than he faces today off his new mark of 100 twice since, and Ryan Moore is booked, but all his best form is on much better ground.
Acclaim The Nation is another horse whose best form is on a decent surface, and he put up one of those better performances when winning at York last time. He’s up to a career-high mark now and is having his first start for a new trainer.
Celcius must be of interest from a handicapping point of view, as he beat Acclaim The Nation earlier in the season at Haydock. He’s 6lb higher than for that win but he’s still 5lb better off with that rival.
Ishvara has already beaten Celcius this season, when finishing runner-up in a race at Bath. That race came on soft ground, so he could easily confirm the form. Oisin Murphy is also in the saddle and, having gone close to winning on her on his only previous booking, a big run is expected.
Dave Dexter is interesting from the bottom of the handicap, as he won a Listed race on heavy ground in September 2018. He also ran well in another Listed race on soft ground last year. But after winning in class 4 company three starts ago on good ground, he’s since been well-beaten behind the top two horses in the weights on his last two starts.
As most of the runners have been battling it out all season, Ainsdale is our Leicester 14.50 tip. The son of Mayson showed he loves the soft Autumnal ground by winning three times on it in October last season. He’s 8lb higher than for the last of those wins but his fourth on his seasonal debut on good ground suggested he should be winning off his current mark soon.
With most of his rivals having already shown their hands this season, he has the most scope for further improvement. The fact he’s still a colt suggests connections think he may be much better than his current mark.
