14.05 Scurry Stakes (Sandown)

We'll kick things off at Sandown, where three-year-olds battle over 5f.

I really like Charlie Hills' SPOOF .

He’s a course and distance winner and also finished a notable third in the bet365 handicap in April.

He then followed that up with a brilliant win in the Boodles Diamond Handicap at Chester at top weight of 9-7.

Callum Shepherd has three wins on board from a possible seven and I think he’ll add another here.

15.00 – Grand Cup Stakes (York) 

I think John Gosden’s WEEKENDER  is the one to beat in this field.

The colt holds a decent record with three wins, two seconds and two thirds from eight trips, only finishing outside the top three on debut.

He was beaten by a nose by Raheen House at Ascot in October, but followed up with a convincing win at Chelmsford in May.

Already a winner over 1m 5f, and with Frankie Dettori in the saddle, this looks a good bet.

15:15 – Class 2 Handicap (Sandown)

Over to Sandown now.

In a wide open handicap the one I’m going for is SALT WHISTLE BAY .

Trained by Rae Guest, this colt has hit great form since July last year (1131-212), including a big win at Yarmouth, beating Victoria Cup winner Ripp Orf.

He’s proven over 1m and well handicapped at 9-5. I think this is a tasty price at.

15:50 Class 3 Handicap (Sandown)

I’m siding with Charlie Hills’ yard again in this 7f handicap, with MUTAKATIF .

This colt has made a really good start with one win two seconds and a third – including a respectable runner-up place to Expert Eye at Newbury last June.

He hasn’t run since September, which is a slight concern, but I still think he’ll take all the beating.
