With what promises to be a stellar weekend of British horse racing action from behind closed doors, Saturday offers a string of noteworthy meetings from the likes of Ascot, Newmarket and Newcastle.
On that note, for those of you looking to open the weekend with a flutter, we have found a couple of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for throughout Saturday.
15:35 PM – Newmarket – Race 7
For our first Tip of the Day, we take a look at what is a standout day of meetings at Newmarket and the only Group 1 contest to take place on Saturday.
With all eyes from across Britain falling on the Darley July Cup Stakes, GOLDEN HORDE will be looking to build off of a stunning return to action last month. With plenty of buzz around the super talented three-year-old, he marched to victory at Ascot in the Class 1 Commonwealth Cup and as a two-year-old in 2019 he was one of the best colts of his generation in Europe, winning the Richmond Stakes and gaining an ever-growing list of admirers from across the continent.
While late money is also expected to come in for SCEPTICAL (5/1 with Paddy Power) who has enjoyed an eye-catching run of form either side of the interruption, we’re backing victory for GOLDEN HORDE this weekend.
16:25 PM – Ascot – Race 8
For our second Tip of the Day, we turn our attention to the final race at Ascot and Class 4 Betfred “Thanks To All Key Workers” Handicap.
Embarking on what has been a stunning return from racing’s enforced break, there is no doubt that all eyes should be on a red-hot ALPHABETICAL this weekend. Last seen at Yarmouth on June 29th when claiming victory in the Visit attheraces.com Handicap, the three-year-old is skyrocketing through the ranks and is seen as a budding group racer. With the mood in Sir Mark Prescott’s stable at a real high, ALPHABETICAL rightfully opens Saturday’s meeting as a clear top pick with the bookmakers.
More impressive, along with marching to the win in over EVAPORUST by seventh lengths at Yarmouth on a return to action last month, ALPHABETICAL has now claimed three wins on the bounce and will be confident of extending that stunning purple patch this weekend.
