Now back to our professional tips.

YORK
13:50 The Queen Mother’s Cup Handicap Stakes (For Lady Amateur Riders)

Mukhayyam is our banker bet for the day. This horse came second in this race last year and it is one they like to aim at as a family target. It is is great form and has good OR mark. Going to go very close.

Mukhayyam 9/2 BANKER

14:25 The JCB Handicap Stakes

Tough race to call here but we do not like the short odds of 9/4 on the overhyped favourite therefore we are siding with Salateen who is in great form and could win if things fall his way today.

Salateen 16/1 Each Way

15:00 The Sky Bet Grand Cup Stakes (Listed Race)

We are going to side with Weekender as it seems to be the proven class horse in the race. The current favourite, Marmelo has too much to prove on UK soil. Clever Cookie if back in form could also be in with an outside chance!

Weekender 11/4

15:35 The Pavers Foundation Catherine Memorial Sprint Handicap Stakes

We have no strong fancy in this race so we will side with Bengali Boys who seems to be improving.

Bengali Boys 16/1 Each Way

SANDOWN PARK
14:05 The Randox Health Scurry Stakes (Listed Race)

Sound and Silence is the only proven class horse in this race and while its last two rides were terrible this season, the trainer is currently in amazing form and has a great record at Sandown. We are going to take a chance and the market seems to back us up.

Sound and Silence 5/1

15:15 The Randox Health Handicap Stakes

Fran Berry to use his course experience to land Via Serendipity the win in this race. Lots of negatives about the competition and this looks a good value bet.

Via Serendipity 5/1

CHESTER
14:40 The Liverpool Gin Handicap Stakes

Austrian School is the one to back in this race, especially if it takes to the good to firm ground.

Austrian School 10/3
