BIT OF A QUIRKE (4.20) can make a bold bid to repeat last year's success in the 1m 2f handicap at Chester. The gelding has got lucky with the draw in stall one and arrives on the back of a Beverley victory, making all the running and readily pulling clear of Regal Mirage.

SPARKLEALOT (5.30) should go off a decent price in the 7f apprentices' handicap. A course winner (soft) last September, he was ridden too aggressively to overcome a poor draw here last time, helping to force the pace before fading into fifth. William Cox takes over the reins and Sparklealot is better drawn today.

This is one of York’s marquee Saturday fixtures and AFAAK (3.50), last month’s Royal Hunt Cup winner, can add another significant handicap scalp to his belt by landing the John Smith’s Diamond Jubilee Handicap. A stout stayer over a mile, Afaak should be able to last out the extra two furlongs on the Knavesmire where he has a course victory on his record. The Charlie Hills-trained five-year-old won on soft at Ascot but it was quick when he won here at the Dante fixture. Afaak, gelded over the winter, is worth chancing under his 5lb penalty, despite a potentially problematical wide draw.

WEEKENDER (2.40) was beaten narrowly by Marmelo here last June and should have the edge over Gold Mount in the John Smith’s Silver Cup. The son of Frankel returns from a short break following his Chelmsford City victory over Danehill Kodiac in May. Gold Mount sprung a 16-1 surprise when readily accounting for Raheen House here last month and should confirm the places on identical terms.

There is an interesting eight-race card at Hamilton's traditional holiday fixture. Irish raiders have mopped up several handicaps in Scotland lately and ART OF UNITY (6.05) could be another winner. John Feane’s gelding ran a close third at Tipperary last month and this appears a weaker event. She receives plenty of weight from some exposed rivals.

INEXES (6.35) can defy top weight in the 6f handicap. Ivan Furtado has the seven-year-old in top form and his close second to useful Air Raid here last month is the best piece of form on offer. Third horse Cale Lane came out to win at Pontefract next time, while the fourth, Global Spirit, as since scored at Ayr.

Autumn Flight has been knocking on the door and lost out in a four-way photo in a course and distance sprint last month. Tim Easterby’s three-year-old can usually be counted on to give a good account.

Stuart Morrison’s EURO IMPLOSION (7.05) ran a stormer at Ripon on Monday evening and a repeat performance will see him go mighty close in the 1m 4f handicap. Clearly appreciating the quicker ground, he helped force the pace and only yielded close home to gambled-on Just Hubert.

Stablemate Dark Lochnagar could never get competitive following a sluggish start at Ayr before staying on into sixth spot behind Five Helmets. Ideally, he could do with some cut underfoot but this longer trip should help. This is a significant class drop compared to his runs behind Just Benjamin at Musselburgh and Summer Moon at York. Southern stables dominate the market but I'm hopeful the prize will remain on home soil.

FREQUENCY CODE (7.35) could have been let in lightly on his handicap debut following three runs in far superior company. Jedd O’Keeffe has pitched his gelding against the likes of Pondus, Surfman and Bangkok, and the betting market should provide some clues to expectations.

ALL ABOUT MADDY (8.05) is another Irish challenger worthy of note. The filly ran fourth to the Johnny Murtagh-trained Finding Nero over 1m 1f at Gowran Park in early June and that may be superior to UK form.

ISHEBAYORGREY (8.35) should go well in the other division of this low-key handicap. Iain Jardine’s runner would only need a repeat of his third to in-form Redarna and Edgar Allan Poe at Carlisle to take a big hand in proceedings.

DIVINER (9.05) can bring the curtain down on a very busy Saturday by landing the mile fillies’ handicap. She performed well at Leicester last time, filling the minor berth behind the Richard Hannon-trained Al Melissa and Clive Cox’s Remembering You.

  1. dylster 5 years ago

    After a long time out of the betting game I logged in here today and backed both elvis and the plugs napwhich both came in. Thanks lads. One prob tho. I wrote on the bet slip Chester 20:00 no 1 11/4 but I meant to put 20:30. I doubt I can claim on it but any help would be appreciated.

    • recoba 5 years ago

      If No1 in the 8.00pm was as big price say
      14/1 and you know the person in shop you could point out it was an obvious mistake and hope they can do you a favour. Bit stricter nowadays in shop but worth a try Dylster

  2. Crawmeister 5 years ago

    Dylster, unfortunately if you had put the name of the horse you would have been fine. No recourse with numbers.

    Ship of the Fen is out today after hibbee and Alan both tipped him last time, he lead all the way and faded badly, wont be burnt again but maybe someone is interested.

    1655C Triple Distilled 15/8 nap – pulled away nicely when winning last night and will be 3lbs lower today if they put him in.
    1710A Firmdecisions 13/2 to win, 13/8 top 3 nb – On a hattrick, won off 77 and 79, runs off 78, place bet seems decent
    1450A Loolwah 10/3 – Has some solid form but tought race to analyse.
    350Y – Aquariam 28/1 ew, 9/2 top 4, evens top 6 – Mountain Angel has some great form, 2 starts back but 10 rivals, 7 have won since, Aquariam has beaten him and is weighted relatively well to that, will chance him.

    • 5 years ago

      1755NA – Show’s Over 9/2 nnb – won last time up 3lbs

    • 5 years ago

      Robot Boy has a chance having dropped 2lbs for winning LTO and now also has an additional 3lbs taken off by his rider.. he is 4/1 fav but at 5s, we have a horse on a hattrick, and a recent CD winner. He is racing off 62, his last two wins have been off 59 and 64… he also beat Ninjago who had won before and since.

      605H – HARD SOLUTION 5/1, 5/4 top 3 to cover win stake.

    • 5 years ago

      1735 Y – DRAGON COMMAND won LTO and is only up 2lbs, he is a big fav odds wise and the horse in 2nd won yesterday at Chester. The issue is the same connections as the 2nd that day re-oppose today with a different horse, so they seemingly know what they have to beat. That horse also has OK form, for the Fahey horse top 3 is 11/10, but I will stick with the 9/4fav, as always, watch market movements, drifts are ok as bookies back in false favs to attract money from the clueless, although we don’t wanna go out too much.

      not really sure what you are on about…

      horses numbers and horse stall numbers are two different things altogether… horse 1 is always top weight, stall 1 is assigned to a horse randomly…

    Took Escobar and what a cracking run by jamie Spencer.

    • 5 years ago

      it was nothing to do with spencer… he does it all the time and it just suits some horses, as the trainer said after, he was made for the type of horse… any other jockey would’ve won on raheen house last race, spencer is garbage.

    • uncle pom 5 years ago

      Would say spencer is the marmite jockey . What people don’t talk about are his front running rides , one of the best from the front I’ve seen .

  19. 5 years ago

    sporting life claim this horse will see this trip out better.. yet they are running over the exact same CD.. absolute joke misleading people.

    ed walker had a field day this week and now has BG out again after a 2nd to bella vita lto, BV went up 10lbs since and has won twice, Probert doesnt mess about either and since my nap was a NR, I am happy to make this it.

    lose on purpose at even money, get into another race with same prize money, get him at 8s or bigger or whatever it was, and then just get everyone and his brother on it… well played to him.. Ed Chamberlain going on like he has performed a training masterclass, bolsheviks, just how they utilise the horse to get the ideal situation…
