Saturday racing tips: Bets for Lingfield, Fairyhouse, Kempton
Our tipster talks you through his win double and four Lucky 15 selections from all of the weekend racecards.
14.05 – Betway Hever Sprint Stakes (Lingfield)
First tip of the day comes in the Betway Hever Sprint Stakes and I really like the chances of KARIJINI .
Trained by Archie Watson, this four-year-old has been very impressive on the All-Weather with three wins and a second in his last four runs.
His victory on this course in January was particularly credible, powering home by 1½ lengths.
It will be interesting to see how he copes with the drop to 5f but, with Edward Greatrex having already won two from a possible three, I think he’s a very nice price.
15.00 – Dovecote Novices’ Hurdle (Kempton)
Moving over to Kempton now and I think SCARLET DRAGON could be set for a big debut.
He's a five-year-old with relative success on the flat, including the Old Rowley Cup at Newmarket, two decent handicap victories at Newbury and a respectable showing in the Wolferton Handicap at Royal Ascot.
Alan King has been impressed with his training since arriving at his yard and hinted that he could go for the Supreme if he lands a big Grade 2 here.
Based on his achievements up until now, don't be surprised if he does exactly that.
15.15 – Betway Winter Derby (Lingfield)
Back to the All-Weather action now and I think KHALIDI has a big shout in the Betway Winter Derby.
A colt with real pedigree, he's won the Feilden Stakes at Newmarket and a listed race at Goodwood where he beat the likes of Raheen House and Monarchs Glen.
A runner-up in both the King Edward VII Stakes and the Gordon Stakes also bodes nicely on his CV.
Making his debut under Clive Cox and on Polytrack, he could be set for a big performance under AW specialist Adam Kirby.
17.10 – NH Flat Race (Fairyhouse)
Final tip of the day comes from Fairyhouse, and this could also be one to keep an eye on at Cheltenham.
The one I’m going for is STAY HUMBLE for Willie Mullins.
He won a point-to-point by five lengths at Ballynoe over 3m, so it will be interesting to see how he copes with the drop in distance.
But if he produces another performance like his debut, then I think he’s a good bet here and also a decent each-way shot at the Festival in the Bumper at .
