Saturday racing tips: Best bets for Wincanton, Aintree and Naas
Our tipster reveals his best bets for a busy day of racing at Wincanton, Aintree and Naas as well as a win double and a Lucky 15.
We begin with a Grade 3 Chase over in Naas, where I think CILAOS EMERY will be the one to beat for Willie Mullins.
The seven-year-old has a decent record with four wins and two seconds from eight trips and won nicely on his chase debut at Gowran Park – finishing ahead of Arkle winner Duc Des Genievres.
That was an impressive performance, considering it was on the back of a 13-month absence, and proves he can handle 2m, so I think he’s the standout here.
In a competitive handicap, I’m going to take a chance on Jeremy Scott’s NATIVE ROBIN .
The nine-year-old has some nice form from his last five runs (12-322) and stayed on nicely last time out at Stratford behind One Forty Seven.
He is a course-and-distance winner (albeit in 2016) and has young jockey Rex Dingle on board, who I rate highly. I think he’s got a good chance.
I really fancied THE LAST DAY last weekend before he was a late non-runner, and I see no reason why he can’t get the job done this time around
He’s been very consistent this year with two seconds in January before getting back to winning ways at Carlisle in March.
Proven over this trip, I think he’s the one to catch.
The final tip comes in the Mares’ Handicap Hurdle, where I think EMPREINTE RECONCE looks a nice price.
She’s been very consistent in her last four outings (3112) and looks ready for a step up in trip.
The ever-reliable Robbie Power takes the ride for the first time and I think he’s got a good chance in this field.
