It is an unusual, rather quiet Saturday lined up in terms of horse racing. Sandown has been abandoned already and Wincanton is set to have an inspection at 7am on Saturday morning.
With hope that Wincanton will go ahead, along with the action from Cork, Lingfield and Newcastle, punters should still be in for a decent day of action to get stuck into.
Bathwick Tyres Handicap Chase
The Bathwick Tyre Chase at Wincanton looks an interesting race, with past winner Consigliere the current 5/2 favourite. He has not ran well in his last two runs, however he has been dropped in weight and this trip will suit better.
Toby Lerone is currently second favourite at 7/2 with Paddy Power and warrants huge respect on his Lingfield win. He fell at Aintree last time, but is likely to run well on the heavy ground.
Jump City and Barlow are another two in with a decent chance in this one.
Bathwick Tyres Poole Handicap Hurdle
The 2.40 at Wincanton is another tricky one for punters, with most of the field likely to run a big race. Jumps Road certainly cannot be ignored and has won three from three here. He carries the biggest weight for this one.
Lord Protector should run well here although he is rised 11lb, following a fine win on the Esher track in December. Maller Tree is another who is likely to run well, with Silsol and Weather Babe others who represent value.
Marriott Interactive Handicap Chase
The Marriot Interactive Chase is likely to be the best race on the Newcastle card and the experienced Rolecarr is likely to feature prominently. He is best price 11/2 with William Hill, which symbolises good value for a horse dropping down in class and weight on the ground he won on at Kelso.
The market leader is another veteran; Lucinda Russell’s Etxalar. He won well at Carlisle last month and seems to run at his best there. He is another likely to run well, as is the 9-year-old, Bertie Milan.
Energia Eros is an interesting entry in the 2.35 at Lingfield and represent some value for punters at 16/1. It is a competitive race, with favourites Castilo Del Diablo and Modernstone sure to put in a good effort, but value lies with the Marco Botti entry.
Wicklow Brave should run well in the 1.00 at Cork, whilst Avondhu Lady and Blood Cotil are another two to look out for later on in the meeting.
Dingo Bay should run well at Newcastle in the 2.50, a track which he won twice at early on in 2013 and Oleohneh is another who warrants respect in the last there.
BET OF THE DAY:
Cork 2.10 – AVONDHU LADY to win
