Saturday racing tips: Best bets for the St Leger Festival
Our tipster reveals his best bets for the fourth day of racing at the Doncaster St Leger Festival on Saturday.
This is a really open Group 2 to kick things off and I’m swaying towards TURJOMAAN .
He had won three out of three but lost his unbeaten streak in Group 3 action last time out, narrowly beaten by Duke Of Hazzard.
Despite that, I’ve still been impressed by Roger Varian’s colt and having three lbs off favourite Shine So Bright could be key.
I absolutely love THREAT and think he’ll have no problems stepping up to 7f.
He has two wins and two seconds so far and was very impressive last time out, claiming the Group 2 Gimcrack at the Ebor Festival.
Pat Dobbs takes the ride and I’m backing him to continue the winning run.
We’re Money Back All Losers in this race so feel I should challenge short favourite Logician. I’m going to do so with IL PARADISO .
He has a solid record so far with two wins, two seconds and two thirds from seven trips and has really caught the eye in his last two.
He won by 12 lengths at Curragh in July before an outstanding effort when third behind Stradivarius in the Lonsdale Cup.
Paddy Beggy knows how to step up in these Group 1s so I’m optimistic he can cause an upset.
Finishing off with the Irish Champions Stakes, I’m struggling to see anything but a MAGICAL win.
He's a multiple Group 1 winner and has been runner-up to Enable on four occasions, including her last two runs.
It was slightly disappointing that she didn't win the Prince Of Wales’s at the Royal meeting but that was potentially down to the soft ground.
She has three lbs on closest rival Elarqam and I think that will be enough to get her back to winning ways.
