A fresh selection of UK horse racing speed ratings are released daily by the Racing Post. For Wednesday 30 April, we look to the speed ratings for Yorkshire’s Redcar Racecourse. The going should be good to firm, with wind and showers expected throughout the afternoon.
Although seeded first for the Class 4 15:20 Handicap, Monsieur Chevalier is firmly in the middle of the pack when it comes to speed ratings. The eight-year-old Tom Eaves-ridden horse will enter the race with a 76 rating.
Two Moons and Shahdaroba are just behind with ratings of 78 and 77, respectively. However, Monsieur Chevalier has won three of its past six races, so there is proven pedigree.
The highest rating of 95 has been credited Bow and Arrow, which will be ridden by Graham Lee. Although placed seventh from the nine runners, Bow and Arrow could be an interesting outsider having won its last two races.
