1.30pm Haydock

My first tip is running at Haydock in the 13.30 bet365 Handicap and the horse I am tipping is MARIETTA ROBUSTI. The Mrs Barclay trained 5-year-old has been performing well recently and was third at Hamilton 9 days ago. She is a C&D winner here and was running off the same mark (8st 9lbs). She looks to be coming back to form and will have a good chance here. Ones to watch out for are Show Palace who is a 4 time winner here but does take a couple of runs to get going again and Autumn Flight who drops back down in trip and has blinkers refitted. But with the ground looking to be going from soft, good to soft in places, MARIETTA ROBUSTI does go well on soft ground and I think she will edge it here.


2.40pm Hamilton

Next up we have the 14.40 at Hamilton. The Hampton By Hilton Hamilton Park Reopens Handicap (class 6) over 5f 7y. My tip was a 66/1 winner over C&D here 9 days ago. The horse in Question is SHESADABBER, she is carrying a 5lb penalty for that success and I feel that it will be hard to stop her here again. Popping Corks was poor here when 20L behind SHESADABBER 9 days ago but she is a C&D winner and will look to put last week’s poor performance behind her. Corton Lass is dropping down in trip and will be the main danger to SHESADABBER.


2.50pm Chepstow

My 3rd selection is QUEEN OF SILCA running in the Soviet Song Memorial Handicap at Chepstow over 7f at 14.50.  With Connections looking to complete a hat- trick she is a horse on the up who was brilliant on her last appearance at Haydock 8 days ago. She carries a 6lb penalty and jockey George Bass is claiming 7lb off. She won over this distance at Chelmsford two runs ago and I feel she is the one to beat and holds leading claims here. So QUEEN OF SILCA is my tip here.


4.50pm Hamilton

My selection is DAWAAWEEN who won over C&D 9 days ago on her second run for her new yard ( J D Bethell). She is looking to overcome a 5lb penalty for that success and I feel it is hard to go against her here. The Daughter of Poet’s Voice should be able to overcome the penalty and still has plenty of progression in the tank. Silver Dust has won two of her last 3 races and will look to be the main threat for DAWAAWEEN. Kevin Stott who has had a brilliant couple of weeks will look to keep his form going in the right direction as he is booked to ride DAWAAWEEN. (NB)


5.00pm Wolverhampton

My last selection is running in the Sky Sports Racing On Sky 415 Novice Median Auction Stakes over 1m 142y. AL SALT was a winner at Newcastle 29 days ago beating the highly-rated Tilsit by a head. For me, he is the one to beat here as Tilsit then went on to win by 19L here earlier this month. I dont think the 7lb penalty will be an issue and rated 88. I feel he will have enough class to make easy work off the field. (NAP)


My Tips-

13.30 – MARIETTA ROBUSTI – 7/2

14.40 – SHESADABBER – 5/6

14.50 – QUEEN OF SILCA – 6/4

16.50 – DAWAAWEEN – 11/8 (NB)

17.00 – AL SALT- WIN – 2/5 (NAP)
