With £10,000 up for grabs on Saturday, here are Chad Yeomans' best horse racing tips for Ascot, Newmarket and York to get you started.
Top Pick: Open Wide | Second Choice: Eeh Bah Gum
The heritage handicap to start Super Saturday is a dash over five furlongs and, as expected, there is a full field of 20 (at the time of writing) going to post.
Ante-post favourite Tis Marvellous flew home over six furlongs in the Wokingham here at the Royal meeting, but he is carrying 9 stone 8 here so it won’t be an easy task.
My top pick is a horse that has threatened to win a big sprint handicap like this for a while and got his act together when winning a six-furlong race at Windsor a little under three weeks ago.
Trained by Amanda Perrett, OPEN WIDE has run very good races in defeat this season including when luckless in running in the Dash at Epsom.
This hold-up performer will be well suited by the stiff uphill finish at Ascot and is one to keep on side of under Charles Bishop.
Northern raider Eeh Bah Gum has run well in every race he’s contested this year, but he is creeping up the handicap without managing to win. If he runs his usual race, he’ll be there or thereabouts.
Top Pick: Flashcard | Second Choice: Akwaan
The mile handicap is only a six-runner race with the market headed by Honest Albert, trained by John Gosden and ridden by Frankie Dettori.
While he is two from two and could potentially be a group horse in a handicap, though, he is short in the betting and I’m more drawn to FLASHCARD, trained by Betway Ambassador Andrew Balding.
Before his seasonal reappearance at Goodwood in May, he was all the rage in the betting and went off favourite for a really strong 7-furlong handicap, won by Beat Le Bon, who is now rated 104.
He didn’t get too much luck that day and showed his inexperience, finishing a little better than midfield.
He followed that up with a better showing at Newmarket when he fluffed the start and couldn’t quicken when he needed to, but was only beaten around 3 lengths by Awe, who went on to finish fourth in the Britannia.
He steps up to a mile here and I think that will be the making of a horse who probably didn’t have the early pace to be competitive over seven furlongs.
Top Pick: Ripp Orf | Second Choice: Kynren
The Bunbury Cup is widely known as one of the most competitive seven-furlong handicaps of the season and this year is no different.
In a twenty-strong field, there are sure to be hard luck stories but I’m hoping that Gerald Mosse will be able to keep RIPP ORF out of trouble to give this son of Rip Van Winkle his first success of the season.
He won a one-mile handicap at this fixture last season and then showed improvement with some honourable runs, including a win in a £50k seven-furlong handicap at Ascot in July on Good to Firm ground.
He’ll encounter those same conditions again, all bar the course, but he has winning form on this course and is certainly a good each-way bet back down to a mark of 93.
Last year’s winner Burnt Sugar and the ultra-consistent Kynren are to be feared most with conditions in their favour.
Top Pick: Buzz | Second Choice: My Lord And Master
The Jubilee Cup rounds up 4 To Win this week and it could be bad news for punters as no favourites have won this race in the past 10 years with six of the last 10 going to a horse with a double-figure price.
With prize money of £125,000, it’s no wonder that this is fiercely contested and my selection is BUZZ for the Hughie Morrison yard, who will need the forecasted overnight rain in order to run, let alone win.
He finished third here over a month ago but drops down significantly in trip for this race.
The line of form I’m more interested in is from September last year, when he beat Mountain Angel despite conceding weight to his main rival and not having a clear passage throughout the race.
With plenty of confirmed front runners, there is likely to be a frantic pace which will set this race up for a finisher and Buzz is sure to be doing his best work at the end of the race.
