Tuesday's Horse Racing Betting Tips & Predictions: 18th February 2020

- 17:02, 17th February 2020

Three meetings are scheduled to survive the after effects of Storm Dennis on Tuesday.

Musselburgh, Punchestown and Lingfield (all-weather) have beaten the weather, though Bangor and Taunton have been called off. We've got three selections in Tuesday's Horse Racing Predictions.

2.00 Musselburgh

Pull Green win and each-way @ 4/1 BET NOW

Brian Hughes continues to make hay while champion jockey Richard Johnson is sidelined and he's seemingly on a journey that will end when he becomes the first man in a quarter of a century to topple Johnson and his predecessor AP McCoy from the mantle of champion jumps rider.

It will be a fine achievement for the north's standard-bearer and he's operating a 31 per-cent strike-rate (9-29) after bookending Monday's Carlisle card with a pair of wins.

He can get off to a flying start in Scotland this afternoon on board Pull Green for the Donald McCain yard.

He was a winner at Catterick in November on his second start over timber and made a bold attempt at the follow-up there on New Year's Day, giving best late on when attempting to concede a hefty weight to the winner (settled for third in the end).

The step up in trip here should be in his favour and Pull Green is fancied to account for the main danger, Keith Dalgleish's consistent mare Glorious Lady, twice a winner over timber already and fourth last time out in Listed novice company at Haydock in December.

5.30 Southwell

Dark Phoenix win and each-way @ 6/1 BET NOW

Dark Phoenix was nothing if not game in scoring last time out at Wolverhampton and might be able to deny his 4lb ratings-rise now.

He had to plenty of the donkey work that evening and was challenged strongly on the closing stages, repelling Golden Fountain and Bank Holiday in determined fashion for a slender success.

Ben Curtis is sticking with penalised C&D winner Luscifer for the Tony Carroll team and that hands an opportunity to another in-form rider in PJ McDonald here.

Dark Phoenix should hold follow-up claims if handling this track on his first visit and looks a very fair price at 6/1.

8.00 Southwell

Sociologist to win and each-way @ 10/1 BET NOW

The Scott Dixon-trained Sociologist tends to run solid races on this Fibresand surfaces (figures of 32242 prior to last month's disappointing sixth) and also gained the only win of his career back in late 2018 over 1m3f.

His consistent form here this winter is enough to suggest he'll quickly bounce back from that lesser run and he came closest to scoring in a handicap over this trip in January from this perch of 60.

Barry McHugh was on board that day and returns in the plate, hopefully they can go one better from a plum draw.
