Now, back to our professional tips for today.
Haydock Park
14:15 The Betway Middle Distance Handicap Stakes
Podemos looks primed to win this on its handicap debut, however it is a competitive race, where both Sea Youmzain and Star Of Southwold should also be respected. I have no strong opinion on this race.
14:50 The Betway Pinnacle Stakes
This is a terrible race with red marks being put through all contenders. When it looks like this, we have to side with the unexposed and possible improver. Therefore the value bet here is Fosun, the German raider, who could easily take this race if runs a true race. The booking of SDS is a good indicator as well to boot.
FOSUN 11/2
15:25 The Betway Achilles Stakes
The conditions are perfect for Final Venture to repeat the success of last year. Loves the going, the distance, the field size and had a cracking race last time out so is in flying form. At odds of 9/1, this is a banker each way bet. Main fears are Judicial and Alpha Delphini.
FINAL VENTURE 9/1 EACH WAY
16:00 The Betway John Of Gaunt Stakes
While Dutch Connection seems like the obvious choice, there really is nothing between this horse and Tabarrak, therefore we have to go with the 7/2 on offer for the latter.
TABARRAK 7/2

Musselburgh
13:55 The Edinburgh Gin’s Seaside Gin Handicap Stakes

While Reverend Jacobs is seeing a 8lb hike for its last time out performance, it looks like it may win again as has the pace of the race to suit. The odds are very skinny though so this is a race that can be easily avoided.

14:30 The Edinburgh Gin’s Scottish Sprint Cup Handicap Stakes

El Astronaute is a beast of a horse and onlyu 3lbs higher than its last win. He is a powerful front running horse and expect it to be there or there abouts at the end.

EL ASTRONAUTE – 5/1

NEWMARKET

15:05 The Animal Health Trust Handicap Stakes

Stormbringer has been running well in defeat lately and Kevin Ryan may have fiund a decent race for this horse. We do not fancy the favourite so get some each way value of this selection.

STORMBRINGER 8/1

15:40 The John Sunley Memorial Handicap Stakes

This is a poor class 2 handicap and Mark Hopkins may get the run of the race. Good recent run, suited to the ground and at 11/1 is good value bet.

MARK HOPKINS 11/1 – EACH WAY
