Saturday Tips: A Haydock fancy can put you in good Spirit

It’s the weekend, and we’ve got our big selections for Saturday’s racing. We had a good record this time last week, and can we enjoy further glory. Tips from Beverley, Chester, Haydock, Chepstow and more!

2:40 Beverley – Cardsharp (15/8)

A nice colt for Mark Johnston who has looked consistent on all three visits to the racecourse. The two-year-old was last seen finishing second in the Woodcote stakes, and retains plenty of potential. He should have the speed to manage back over the minimum trip, and is the one to beat.

3:45 Chester – Megan Lilly (4/1)

Has been running well all season for Richard Fahey, and has ran well at the track too. She should be good regardless of the ground, and has a good draw in her favour too. The form of her penultimate start is very strong, she was beaten by two horses that day who have both won bigger races since.

3:40 Newmarket – Jaameh (5/1)

Another nice chance for Mark Johnston who was a hugely impressive winner at Chester last time, and has to be fancied to follow that victory up. The 7lb raise is only fair, and he looks good enough to take this.

4:15 Newmarket – Luqyaa (9/4)

After a promising third at this track in October, I think this nice looking filly can strike for John Gosden. She’s well bred and should improve from her debut effort, especially with champion jockey Jim Crowley on board.

4:40 Haydock – Warrior’s Spirit NAP (10/3)

The partnership of Ryan Moore and Richard Hannon is often deadly and the pair team up with Warrior’s Spirit. He won at Newbury beating Crystal Ocean, before two disapointing efforts this season. The ground should suit him, and he should handle the track too. This one looks to be a big improver!

Aidan O’Brien could be set for a winner at the Curragh this afternoon

5:50 Curragh – Pocketfullofdreams (6/5)

A great servant to Aidan O’Brien who drops substantially down in grade for this contest. The three-year-old has finished second in two listed races before a credible effort in the Oaks. She should be up to winning a maiden this afternoon.

6:45 Chepstow – Jinkie Pink (11/8)

A nice Ed Dunlop two-year-old who posted a decent effort at Newbury on debut. The form has worked out pretty well. He lowers in grade this afternoon, and if he can improve from that effort he could be the one to beat.

7:15 Chepstow – Alaadel (6/4)

After winning on debut this looks a nice way to follow up for William Haggas. The four-year-old has been absent for a long time before winning, and looks to be working his way up the handicap. He should be good enough to take this.
