Saturday’s Horse Racing Tips – 5 Best Bets from the Evening Cards
With a weekend packed full of stars all over the country, we have two evening meetings at Yarmouth and Chelmsford. I will give my 5 top tips and previews for the meeting at Chelmsford.
You can see the racing tips for today’s meetings below and also a couple of free bet bonuses you can use including this Ladbrokes £30 sign-up offer which means you get 3 free £10 bets once you bet £10 on a race today.
My first selection, running in the 16.35 tote Placepot Your First Bet Handicap (class 3) is INTREPID ITALIAN. He is improving as a 3-year-old who arrives here looking to score a hat trick after winning two Lingfield handicaps over 6f. He has had a 7lb rise in the rating but still merits respect. Ones to watch here will be Never Dark who has placed in 5 of his 6 runs and will be looking to put his poor run at Ascot last month behind him. Sunset Breeze will be looking to complete a hat trick after winning at Newcastle and Newmarket. He is up 5lb in the rating and has more to offer. If you are betting E/W then Waddat has good claims at 7/1 who completed a hat trick in february when winning over C&D here. He is up 5lbs but has a good chance to be involved.
In the big race of the meeting, the 18.40 Queen Charlotte Fillies’ Stakes (Listed) over 7f. My tip is the Current Market favourite and last year’s winner BILLESDON BROOK. She is a dual Group 1 winner and was 6L behind Circus Maximus in the Queen Anne Stakes 18 days ago at Royal Ascot. With her 3lb lower than her closest rival Mubtasimah. BILLESDON BROOK is the leading player here for me and is one to beat. As mentioned above Mubtasimah trained by William Haggas and ridden by Cieren Fallon will look to make a strong performance and put the race to the favourite. She has won 4 out of 8 runs with her best performance coming at Newbury 21 days ago beating Miss Celestial by 2L. She is dropping down in trip and that should be a benefit for her. (NAP)
In the 19.10 race, FULL INTENTION will have a clear intention to claim a 5th All-Weather win and is a C&D winner here. He was last seen at Yarmouth 31 days ago when 3rd of 9. He did leave it a little late to get going but recovered well with a place. He remains well-weighted and makes appeals. Sepahi is another course winner who is 2 wins for 5 runs who will be a leading player here. She is being upped to 7f again after being beaten by Avenue Of Stars at Kempton 11 days ago. She is carrying a penalty but she holds a strong E/W claim. Philamundo is a course winner who likes to challenge late coming of strong pace but may not get that here, he will be hoping for no rain so he can get a quick pace. But I am tipping FULL INTENTION to surprise a few.
LUNA WISH will be looking for a run that is out of this world here in the 19.40 tote.co.uk Now Never Beaten By SP Handicap as she is a two time winner over C&D. She has had 7 months off after finishing 10 of 12 at Kempton last November. She comes here with a good draw (Stall 2) & she may enjoy the run of the race. At the current odds of 28/1 I feel it’s worth the gamble as an each-way bet. Ascraeus will be the one to watch here after winning at Wolverhampton when making a return to the track last month but a wide draw (Stall 12) won’t make this plain sailing for the Andrew Balding-trained 3-year-old. Arafi will be looking to make the extra furlong count but did run on Monday at Windsor when 3rd of 10.
My last pick is in the 20.40 to close the meeting at Chelmsford City. In the chelmsfordcityracecourse.com Novice Stakes (Div 2) over 1m 2f. PARADISE ON EARTH is running for John Gosden and is an Invincible Sprint filly who is shaped with potential. She is half-sister to Virgo Rising who won over 7f. She was 4th on her racecourse debut at Kempton over 1m last month. She did finish strong so connections must feel the extra 2 furlongs will be a benefit to her. The horse is sure to improve and my tip. Lady Sansa is another who should benefit from going up in trip as her sister Lady Olenna won at 1m 1f. She was 3rd on her debut at Kempton over 1m in January but is one who has played up in the stalls twice since then. Naizagai had good form as a 2-year-old when he placed in all of his three runs last year but was poor when last seen at Yarmouth 31 days ago when 11th of 12. He is wearing cheekpieces for the first time and will be looking to put his poor run last month to the side to challenge here. (NB)
