Saturday racing tips: Bets for Doncaster, Kempton, Meydan
With money back as a free bet up to £20 in all ITV races if your horse finishes second, our tipster reveals his best Saturday horse racing tips.
The flat is back and the first race that grabs my attention is the Spring Mile, where I like the chances of RAMPANT LION .
He hit some decent form towards the end of 2018 and has won two of his last four, with two big victories at Kempton.
Proven over 1m and with Silvestre De Sousa in the saddle, I think he’s a good each-way bet.
Over to Kempton for some AW action now and I think CASPAR THE CUB can go well at a nice price.
Alan King’s four-year-old has very impressive form (111-1232) and is a multiple C&D winner having won four out of a possible seven here.
He was slightly off the pace last time out when he was well behind Count Calabash but I’m hoping the change of jockey with Nicola Currie coming in can get him back to winning ways.
The big race of the day is up next and, as we’re paying five places on the Lincoln, there’s two each-way shouts I like.
The first is HUMBERT who joins David O’Meara’s stable this season.
He finished second at this meeting in the Spring Mile last year when 50/1 Highland Acclaim just beat him by a neck.
The five-year-old was again beaten by a neck in the Spring Cup at Newbury last April but was very disappointing last time out in the Balmoral Handicap.
He is proven over 1m so hopefully he can improve on his debut for his new yard.
The other one I like is ANOTHER BATT .
He actually ran really well in the Balmoral, finishing fourth at 66/1, and was only around a length behind winner Sharja Bridge.
George Scott’s star has been over at Meydan over the past few months and picked up a very big win over Top Score and Ekhtiyaar, which is a massive form boost.
Cameron Noble brings his five lb claim on board to help the handicap, so he’s worth an each-way dabble.
My final tip comes at Meydan in the Group 1 Sheema Classic, where I think Aidan O’Brien’s MAGIC WAND can get back to winning ways.
She was brilliant in the Ribblesdale at the Royal meeting, where she finished four lengths ahead of Wild Illusion, but lost to the Godolphin star in a Group 1 at Longchamp in October.
A tremendous effort when second in the Pegasus World Cup in January sets her up nicely and I’m hoping she’ll go well on the turf here.
