With plenty of racing on offer this Saturday, punters are in for a top quality day of betting. The Cambridgeshire meeting at Newmarket is by far the stand out meeting of the day, with racing fans in for a real treat.
Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes (Fillies’ Group 1)
Richard Hannon’s Sky Lantern is set to take on a number of competitive rivals, with Elusive Kate and Just The Judge two of the more favoured horses in the feature race of the day at Newmarket.
Hughes will be aboard the 1000 Guineas and Coronation Stakes winner again and if she can finally have the race her way, a return to winning ways is a strong possibility. She is the current favourite at 2/1 with Stan James which seems a fair bet.
John Gosden’s 4-year-old is the main rival once again, with Ladbrokes offering the best price of 11/4. She was unlucky in this race last year and won well to beat today’s favourite by a neck in the Falmouth Stakes in July.
She then went on to beat another of today’s rivals, Duntle, with comfortable ease which puts her in good shape to go on and win again. Just The Judge will be up against Sky Lantern for the fifth time here, however the favourite has won three of those races, so a turn in the tables does not look likely.
Charles Hills’ filly is fairly good value though, with BetVictor offering 8/1 for her.
Connolly’s Red Mills Cheveley Park Stakes (Fillies’ Group 1)
Vorda is the 2/1 leading contender for Philippe Sogorb in the Connolly’s Red Mills Cheveley Park Stakes. She won three races in a row this season before losing out narrowly to No Nay Never in the Prix Morny in August.
The 2-year-old is still good enough to win this though and is expected to go well. Charles Hills’ saddles high-class filly, Kiyoshi, who finished third in the Moyglare Stud Stakes at Curragh. The drop back to 6f should suit, which should enable her to run a big race.
Joyeuse won well in a listed race last time when she had both Dorothy B and Alutiq behind so cannot be ignored at decent value of 13/2 with most firms. Come To Heel is another that should not be ignored following two wins and an unbeaten status. She is currently 13/2 with Paddy Power.
Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes (Group 2)
The first race of today’s meeting is the Group 2 Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes. Mark Johnston will be hoping Somewhat can produce a similar performance to another of his horses, Steeler who won this race in 2012.
The step-up to 1m will suit his colt, who has improved greatly since finishing fourth in Chesham.
Bet365 are currently offering the best odds for him at 15/8.
The market leader is BERKSHIRE, who beat Somewhat and two other strong contenders in the Chesham at Royal Ascot back in June. He is 11/10 best price with a small number of firms, which puts him in with a very good chance here.
Washaar is a stylish colt who should run well, although he has a lot of work to do to beat Somewhat and Berkshire. Kingfisher and Sir Jack Layden have plenty to do and will probably struggle in this competitive contest.
The Betfred Cambridgeshire is by far the most competitive renewal of the day, however jockey Johnny Murtagh and Educate warrant serious respect. He has been steadily improving until last twice, but if he gets the luck in this one a win could be on the cards. Queensberry Rules and Graphic are others to consider in a highly competitive contest.
Champion jockey Richard Hughes rides Remember in the 4.25 who has a very good chance, whilst Urban Dance is unbeaten over 1m2f on the July Course, which suggests 1m4f is sure to suit in the last race. They are 7/2 and 15/8 respectively with Paddy Power.
Plenty of other racing is on offer across the UK as well today, including Chester, Haydock, Market Rasen and more.
